    Default Can you be an "ambivert" on all the letters? Hehe

    Well see title. But yeah ok assuming I have such things as preferences, please help figure them out. :wonders:

    I/E - Really fuzzy on this one. I can function very well doing my things alone. Otoh, I like to see new people, however if I get bored, I'll get away from the group and feel better that way, refreshed finally doing whatever I want to do even if it's just walking around wherever I want to go. Yet I like being in a crowd, there's more to see then, more chance for anything, and just feel more alive overall with more stimuli. Overall, I could function fine on an island alone but it'd be more interesting and just more... more alive with other people. But I can see myself not wanting to talk to them at times when I want to check out something else that's just taken my interest. Then, I often talk before thinking but I can spend time with thinking for long if needed to put something complex together nicely, that just takes mental energy but ok as an interesting challenge when I have the patience for it.

    F/T - Might be the easiest dichotomy to decide. When I want to sort out something, I take into account impersonal aspects automatically. Otoh I try to be nice on a general level to people. I like to accommodate others and I don't go around intentionally hurting people, would have a hard time doing that, e.g. prefer not telling someone their clothes aren't so great unless it's necessary, still I can come off as rude a lot when I don't pay attention, as I easily question what's said regardless of authority or feelings because I just like to present the truth and/or like discovering explanation for whatever and I don't think of niceties then at all. Weird but seem to have a hard time holding constant feelings like hatred or love towards someone else as a person (well ok the love thing is complex). Still, I think I like emotional expression just not sure about introspecting about feelings. I don't think I'm truly likable, superficially ok but I don't think I can keep the true interest and love of others for long, sure maybe overly pessimistic here, it's just how I feel about this, though if I don't think deep about this topic then I'm always optimistic about my being likable by others, so whatever, maybe just temporarily pessimistic. In general I do like people though, always curious about everyone etc.

    S/N - I really think I can do both. I don't try to go around generating ideas all day but I like to see essence of some abstract things that interest me much and I could intuitively find special solutions in some subjects in school and later in work. I've got and like my AHA moments. I like concrete parts of life, love paying attention to such aspects, from clothing to sports, but spending life with just that on its own isn't meaningful enough. The abstract and the concrete to me are two distinct things though, I don't mix them up. Then, I don't daydream about my own life by default, I prefer reality over that and even when I was feeling down (I don't ever feel any of that for long) and I wouldn't get out of bed right away and then would have more dreams than usual those were just real REM dreams, not daydreaming, nor lucid dreams so take this for whatever it's worth...probably not a point for intuition here. However I can be very good with fiction, I've even written my own fiction stuff and I can get really immersed in that kind of imagination. Also, I'm aware of environment in an overall way and very aware of the spatial details and quite aware of aesthetics but not the other details. The same for my memory, I recall overall scene and spatial arrangement of things but not all the close details because who cares about that, well unless it's some object(s) that I really like or would like to own, play with, etc., otherwise nope.

    J/P - I can strongly appear as either of these. I can do things according to strict plan when highly motivated to reach my goal and I can obsess about keeping to little details in the plan. I like to be thorough enough with work, not a perfectionist though. Yet, usually I can go around improvising anytime, plan on the fly, change that and so on. When I get up, I usually don't know yet how my day will go. I can't keep a strict hourly timetable if not forced, something will always change a bit.

    Then there's functions but huh, let's start with just the four letters first, I don't want to be too long to read. Though of course if you have suggestions on function preferences based on the above text, I will be even more glad to hear about those than just the generic dichotomies.

    Thanks!

    Where did I say that I'm too unique to be categorized? Please point it out, thank you.

    Clearly, if I thought that, I would not have asked you all about how to categorize my preferences.

    This of course does not exclude a strong Fi preference but I would like to hear more arguments about this

    Mhmhmmm. Btw, any opinion on my functions? Brainstorm some with your cool Ne.

    You didn't say it, you're right. If I'm making an evidence-based claim here, then I would point to the hundreds of similar threads before you that start like this and within a few months of hanging around here and learning more, they put xxFP in their profile.

    Ah, well, ironically enough I mentioned the T/F dichotomy might be the easiest to decide for me and I wasn't thinking Fi there but maybe I was wrong there.

    I prefer to get rid of any biases of mine anyway to examine this as closely as possible.

    Btw is there some set of questions on this site that you guys like to use to help with typing? I looked but didn't see anything so far

    This makes it likely, but one can't make assumptions. I think using this as a sole criterion is very risky.

    @wonders, what you said on the T/F issue is pretty much exactly true of me. And I think I am an ambivert on all the letters except N. For the record, I identify myself as iNtp, but it's not a strong association at all. And it's because of lots of obsessive research and analysis, and concluding that I fit it and the cognitive function order the most closely of all, even though I don't fit it very well.

    Most people were convinced I was INFP at the start, and many still believe it. Don't be swayed too much by the masses. I could still of course turn out to be xNFP, but that would make like 90% of my reasoning invalid, which I think is unlikely. I think I am too unique to be neatly categorized, but I have always wanted very much to be, which is contrary to the -NFP-ness. It's more due to seeing so many seeming contradictions.

    I'm actually thinking you are a T (with a very slight preference).

    I'm confident you are a slight to moderate P, with Ne preference. Probably genuine ambivert on I/E. So...xntP!

    You seem about 85% like me too, which supports my conclusion.


    If you really want to be sure, start reading about the differences between extraverted and introverted versions of the functions (such as Fe vs. Fi), and definitely look at the inferior functions. See if inferior Si or Fe fits you- if so I'm likely right.

    Of course I could be totally wrong; only you can know.
