    Red face What Type Am I?

    I've established recently that my Enneagram is 8, I read it and I identified with it completely.
    Now, my MBTI is more difficult.
    I identify with both S and N very much.
    I know I am IxxP.
    When I take a test I usually get INTP.
    Here are my cognitive function results:
    Introverted Intuition (Ni) ||||||||||||||||| 7.545
    Introverted Feeling (Fi) |||||||||||||||| 7.17
    Introverted Thinking (Ti) ||||||||||||| 5.69
    Extroverted Sensation (Se) ||||||||||||| 5.57
    Extroverted Thinking (Te) |||||||||||| 5.47
    Introverted Sensation (Si) |||||||||||| 5.24
    Extroverted Intuition (Ne) |||||||||| 4.015
    Extroverted Feeling (Fe) ||||||||| 3.68

    So as you can see, I have very strong Fi and Ni.

    So, here's my argument with myself over S/N, T/F.

    Sensory:
    I'm an artist. I'm very sensitive to physical touch. I love physical contact (snuggling, sex, hand holding.) I use pornography for, um, aide (apparently Ns are more likely to make fantasies in their mind than watch porn.) I am completely indulgent on physical pleasures. I am constantly nostalgic. I believe everyone's past reveals a lot, I focus a lot on my past and dream about it to get me through life today. I am almost fearful of attempting something (say, going to the next level of a video game) before perfecting it's prerequisites. I love knowing the details. I try not to dream too much when I know I'm dreaming unrealistically.

    Intuitive:
    I am constantly contemplating on things, how they work, what their different outcomes could be, why their end result is the way it is and why it became like that. I space out all the time. I love breaking down things and finding out how they are connected. I use directions as a general guideline, I'm not afraid to go off the page in a spur of ideas if I'm feeling it. I have a deep gut instinct, something inside of me just knows. I love to dream and fantasize (it usually manifests itself through writing and roleplaying) but I know when to come back to reality.

    Thinking:
    I don't like dealing with other people's emotions. If someone starts crying, I generally clam up because I don't know what to do. I can see all points of a conversation, I will not be blind and dismiss everyone's point of view especially when I can see the rational behind other people's points of view. I will stand for what I want and I won't let other people's opinions shake my own. I enjoy debating (IF it's with someone that's not completely close minded and irrational about their opinion.) I'm not sentimental or compassionate. I will NOT sugarcoat things to spare feelings, if something needs to be said then I say it.

    Feeling:
    Welp, back to the gut feeling here. If something doesn't feel right to me, I won't do it- even if objectively the best choice would be that I do. I strive to find meaning, I can't stand not knowing what my feelings mean. I go by my emotions, despite not wanting to. Even if I know it's the best decision to choose A, I will choose B if I like it better. I have deep values grounded in my own thoughts and feelings rather than logic and rationalization. I'm a strong believer in doing what I believe to be fair, I won't do something to benefit myself if it completely destroys chances for another person (I guess I have a deep sense of justice.)


    What do you guys think? Do I sound like any particular type to you?

    I think that you are an ISFP with strong Ni.

    Thank you for your opinion, but could you elaborate on why you think so please?

    I see Se, Ni, and either Ti or Fi in you. Actually with all of your comments about how much you like to figure out how things work, you may actually be an ISTP. That actually sounds more like a Ti function to me. So you are some type of ISxP with Ni as your tertiary function.

    ISFP jumps out at me... (Fi Se Ni Te)

    First, a lot of ISFPs I have met have been a bear to type... they are just really fluid in how they see things, I guess.

    I pulled a few things out of what you offered.... First, Fi ... Fi is sensual and deeply emotional, Fi Se leads to aesthetics in life, sexuality and art. They can also be very inflexible in those feelings - developing a strong sense of feeling and thus are not always tugged around by the feelings of others - though they can be very caring especially one-on-one. Like all introvertive functions, Fi takes the time to work out how they truly feel about something and then present it fully formed to others rather than share it prematurely for excessive feedback. Thus they take pride in how they feel about this or that - they've put a lot of work into it! This is what makes them great artists.

    Se is all about living life and pushing boundaries. Living in the moment and taking in the here and now. Societal expectation and tradition gets in the way of that, doesn't it? Good thing Se doesn't really care.

    So, if you are Fi .. you are Te - a deconstructor of facts. Te likes to bring logic to any situation. Debate is fun, and arguing something back and forth can be refreshing. It's important to get some logic applied to the situation for real effect. Fact and analysis is fluid and should be applicable... so you don't spend tons of time over-analyzing every single little dewey decimal detail... common sense typically suffices.

    The interaction of Fi and Te functions can cause this very problem of not being able to be typed easily. You are driven by feeling but you like to banter logic. Logic ends up being this beach ball tossed here and there as you gather more and more info, more and more points of view to try to apply logic to a situation - but your ultimate decision is based on feeling.

    Ni speaks of reliance on your own intuiting and mental power. Ni likes nothing more than to figure things out with brain power and solid principle. This can make them rigid in their interpretation of intellectual right and wrong. Ni works to quietly devise some epic ultimate truthiness from their mind/soul and is less inclined to toss random ideas/principles around.. much preferring to work it out on the inside. Couple this with Fi and you got real creative depth. Artists with this combo are firing on all creative cylinders.
