    Default Some help typing me?

    I think I'm an IxFP, but I don't know if I'm an INFP or an ISFP, and I could be completely wrong. So I guess I'll just post a little bit about myself then, and if you guys have any questions you can ask those and I can answer them? XD

    I'm often mistaken for an extrovert because I like to talk a lot with my close friends and when someone is talking about something I'm very interested in or feel strongly about. I feel the most comfortable when I'm with one or two close friends, or by myself. I don't like big groups of people, parties, or talking with acquaintances or strangers because I start feeling uncomfortable and worn out.

    I tend to second-guess myself a lot ("I think I'm this type!" one day, for instance, and then the next day I'll go "I'm not so sure, maybe I should research more...")
    I wouldn't say I'm antisocial or hard to approach. If someone comes up to me, I'll gladly talk to them and be very polite, but I am rather private. I would say only one person really knows who I am, and he's been my best friend for almost 5 years now.

    I like to dance a lot. I want to have a career in dance. I also like to paint (though I'm not very good at it, it energizes me and always makes me feel better) and I love to write, which I actually think I've gotten pretty good at. Even as a child I was always doodling or writing stories. I once drew a bunch of imaginary friends but I forgot about them after a few hours.... I like to lay outside, too, and to just feel the wind on my skin and soak in the sun and take in the world around me. Sometimes my thoughts wander to other people or to other things, or I'll imagine conversations in my head, but it's a lesser thing going on in the back part of my brain--the front part is focused more on the world around me. I play piano, too. I really like to play piano and I'm really really good at the piano (not to brag though! ) and I also like to sing, although let's be honest... I sound like a dying whale when I sing. XD

    I hate people who lie and whenever I lie I always feel really guilty, but whenever I feel like I'm going to get in trouble, I always lie as a gut reaction. I feel really bad about it but I just feel terrified that someone's going to yell at me for something that I did.

    I hate conflict. With a passion. I feel ill when I listen to people argue. I almost never get in arguments with people, myself, because I can almost feel when a subject we're discussing is going to eventually end in an argument, and with those I always play the peacemaker, smooth things over, and try to avoid any disagreements. I'll often put my own happiness aside, or not state my opinions or what I'm really thinking, to try to make others happy so as to avoid upsetting a balance or a sense of peace.

    I absolutely love animals, and I'm very... I guess you could say I'm very humanitarian. One of the things I'm fascinated with is the Golden Gate Bridge. I really want to move to San Fransisco at some point in the distant future and spend all my free time sitting at the Golden Gate Bridge. Even though I know the chances of me being able to talk someone out of suicide there are probably pretty slim I would at least like to try. I also hate it when other people judge other people. One time me and my mom were in the mall and we saw someone who had a pink mohawk. I didn't think anything of it, but my mom said "Look at that freak with his pink hair!" and I suddenly had the very strong urge to punch her in the face for that, but I smothered it down, pretended I didn't hear her and quickly changed the subject.

    I'm also very sensitive. I don't come across as sensitive at all. I usually just act really happy and hyper and everybody buys it. But I cry a lot at home when I'm alone in my room and no one can hear me if I ever get criticized or insulted. I have a pretty bad temper that I keep hidden, too, but sometimes I blow my top off. (I know I'm definitely Fi dominant, if that helps you type me at all.)

    I also love music and I really want to go to Japan at some point. I think Japan is really beautiful and that the people there seem amazing (although I know they must have bad people there like anywhere else I think the majority seem peaceful and respectful. )

    I also feel misunderstood a lot, especially by my parents. One of my goals in life is to have a real friendship with my future children when I'm married, to understand them and be able to talk with them about anything. I want them to never feel the way my parents (unintentionally) make me feel--under pressure to be what they want me to be and who they want me to be, and misunderstood by them.

    Also, if it helps you at all, I'm a 14 year old female.

    I relate to a lot of what you're saying, especially at your age (you said you're only 14, and I was a lot less confrontational at 14) and I think you're definitely an IxFP. You might be an ISFP, but I can't be sure.

    If you consistently play peacemaker though you may be an Enneagram 9.

    I read through the basic summary of 9s. I do relate quite a bit to it, but I don't think it seems to fit enough for me to be a 9...
    Is there anything I could tell you about myself to help decide on whether I'm an ISFP or an INFP?

    So you don't think you're as peacemaking as a nine, despite your avoidance of conflict? Do you think you're more like a 4?

    As for INFP versus ISFP I am honestly hesitant to make quick judgments because of your age. Maybe if you're on the forum more, I can be more of a help with this.

    You strike me as an ISFP.

    If type 9 doesn't fit you, try reading some descriptions of type 6.

    eta: Of course, being that you're only 14, you'd just now be coming into your own with your auxiliary function. Read some descriptions of Se and Ne, one of them should feel more accurate to you.

    The hyper, social factor made me think that ISFP was probably more of a possibility because of ambiversion, and also because I relate to a lot of what she is saying, from when I was around 13-14.

    I looked into both type 6 and type 4. Type 4 fits more than type 9 did but type 6 seems to fit me almost to a T, so I'm pretty sure I'm a 6.
    I've read descriptions of Se and Ne (I read them about a week ago, I think, I was reading about all of the functions) and I feel like I use them both, even though I know that's not possible. All the descriptions I read just confused me, and by now I'm at a saturation point where Se and Ne both look about the same. XD

    Based on what you've said, you sound pretty ISFP. Then again, N/S is the hardest to tell over the internet, at least for me, so it's possible that you could be an INFP.

    On Ne v. Se:

    Ne is the thing that makes you think of all the different possibilities in response to one question, right off the bat. It's spontaneous and unconscious, and tends to take in seemingly irrelevant pieces of information and creates a connection between all of them.

    I can't speak as much for Se, but from what I've heard, it's like taking what your five senses perceive and almost living through that which you perceive. That's kind a of a nebulous description, though, and I think I'm making it sound more dramatic than it needs to be. Ideally, you could ask an ISFP (like Marmie Dearest), who is certain about their type, about how they think their Se manifests.

    What you have said, however, falls in line with Wikipedia's interpretation of Se: "Se focuses on the experiences and sensations of the immediate, physical world. "

    I like to lay outside, too, and to just feel the wind on my skin and soak in the sun and take in the world around me.
    . . . the front part is focused more on the world around me.
    Also, a lot of S's excel at and are very interested in the arts, such as the ones you've described. :3

    Another reason why you seem like an ISFP is because Si doesn't seem to be something you're actively using. INFPs incorporate their Si by thinking about the past and spend time reflecting/dwelling on things that have already transpired. Their kind of S relives memories, rather than the S that ties you to the present.

    I would agree you seem ISFP, but you may be too young to definitively tell.

    I agree, you sound ISFP to me.. you exclusively reference actually doing things in the world, going places, seeing things.
