I've recently read a couple of articles on the functions that made me doubt my type. I initially typed as an INFJ when I took a (very poor) MBTI test, but I didn't see the secondary Fe and so went to look into it (after a while). I identified with Ti and Ne after reading Lenore Thomson's book, but then I found articles describing Ni and Te and they sounded almost equally like they fit.
My general personality:
- Determined (work towards goals, such as finishing a book)
-Future-orientated (always thinking about what's next, considering the future, making vague plans etc.)
-Absent-minded (always misplacing/losing things, even money, but I tend not to forget appointments)
-Reasonably generous (I don't mind spending money on people I like, but I resent having to give it to people I don't)
-Have been called 'serious' and 'intense' before.
-Find making friends very difficult (I have no real motivation unless they're very interesting or, as it is in university, I'm going to need them for group work in the future)
-Perfectionistic (I can't leave something alone until it's finished to a high standard - but mild OCD runs in the family)
-Hard on myself (I didn't realise until my mum commented that I need to give myself a break)
-Have a lot of interests, but only a couple I really focus on.
-Used to be very shy and a doormat when I was younger (due to bullying and growing up the younger twin/youngest in the family)
-I'm not good at knowing what I need (I don't notice being thirsty/warm etc. for a long time)
-I tend to answer questions without reading the whole thing in tests (which can lead to losing marks) because my eyes don't move as fast as my brain.
More info: I'm currently in university studying Japanese and planning to do an MA in either Translation or Creative Writing. I have suffered from an anxiety disorder until reasonably recently. I have a slightly stressful home life (my sister's recovering from a mental illness). I hated school, but loved college and I like university. My work is pretty much my life and it's taken years for me to start actually hanging out with my friends properly. I tend to pick things up quickly, except for things like Maths and piano.
Not sure what else to put. Feel free to ask questions if you need more info.
Thanks in advance!
