    Default Help Needed!

    I am leaning towards ENFP but i can't be certain. What are some ways that can help me to figure out my type? I am pretty certain that i use Fi as my auxilary which would make my tertriary Te, but i am still confused about my dominant function and inferior function, any tips on how i can solve this problem? I would appreciate any opinions especially from intuitive and sensing dominant users or anyone who has had experience with such types.

    I do not know my type, but concentrate on the inferior function. What kinds of statements do you find uncomfortable yet madly convincing? I mean things you hear other people say, things you read, etc.

    Extraverted intuitive types are prone to over stimulation - you may notice an awful lot all the time, this can be overwhelming and cause you to retreat in an introverted fashion. Extraverted intuition manifests mostly in ideas or possibilities and the immediate following of them - it is very impulsive, a true believer in itself though also very able to go off on tangents. In fact, it can change direction very easily and always find a way out of any sticky situation it manages to get itself into ...
    Does this sound like you?

    What other types have you been considering?

    Thank you to both katherine and Webslinger. What Webslinger said about Ne i can totally relate to one example would be at times i will be reading a book or something and an idea in the book will remind me of a thousand other things then i am forced to reread what i read. Katherine i liked what you pointed out about the inferior function, in the ENFP Si is the inferior function and what i have learned about Si it likes routine, details, likes the past, learns best by memorization which are things I don't like when being taught something i like the main idea to be taught then the facts.

    Hi Karma95 You quoted us backwards but that's ok! You sound very ENFP to me. If you were ESFP, you might prefer facts first, then the main idea. Not sure? One other thing about Si is memory. Do you have a good memory for facts/events, or do you tend to get them wrong or exagerrate and not really notice or care much about that? Ask someone who knows you as most inferior Si users I know dont' realise or admit to this

    hmm...why don't you try reading these and compare? they really helped me with finding out my type. it's about the inferior.

    Se - Ni http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...rior-esps.html
    Ne - Si http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...rior-enps.html

    you sound like an enfp though..but did you think about the possibility of other types?

    Yes i took a look over both the links i can definately relate to the ENFP description much more, i think one of the reasons i was undecided is i have been around a lot of Artisan and Guardian types so i think i was trying in a way to imitate those sensing traits obviously that didn't end with a positive result, it's a possibility, and any conceptual possibilties that come from Ne may have become invisible.
