    Default What am I?

    So I have an issue - I labelled myself as an INFJ based on the last test I took a couple of weeks ago. While I was in college (a good several years ago)- when I took a test, I was an INTJ. However, when I was looking around today for anyone who had the INTJ/INFJ issue, I found that some people have issues with tests and it's better off reading the descripts and figuring out who you are (look below):

    Can I ask how old you are?

    The main difference between INFJs and INTJs is that INFJs (usually) make decisions/see the world through values and the human element more than they do looking at things more impersonally. INTJs are the opposite. One thing I have to add, though, is that being an INFJ doesn't mean you can't see things impersonally or have a strong tendency toward logic (after all, we do have NiTi); it's about what your primary focus is.

    As for the different cognitive functions, try this website: http://www.cognitiveprocesses.com/
    I did that. So far, based on these cognitive functions, I can say that I relate to the Introverted intuition, Introverted thinking, Extraverted feeling, but I can't seem to figure out the sensing part . Can anyone help me by giving me a personal sense of the sensing type?

    Thanks a lot!

    Based on the fact that you relate to Ni, Ti, and Fe, you're most likely an INFJ, which would mean you have Extraverted Sensing as your last function. It's likely you won't have a very good grasp on it at all.

    Here's a description of Se.

    INFJs and INTJs under the rules of the book use Se or sensing last, although I am not a Jungian Functions fundamentalist. If you are one though your functions correlate better with INFJ.
