    Default Am I a strange INTP/INTJ/ISTJ hybrid?

    Hi all, I've been trying to determine my type since I took the humanmetrics.com test last week, which pronounced me an INTJ. (Two years ago, though, the same test told me I was INTP.) Yesterday, i took the cognitivefunctions.com test, which said I'm an ISTJ (!?).

    I'm now turning to the power of the great hive mind here instead. The only thing I'm sure of is that I'm an introvert. I'm pretty sure I have strong Thinking and weak Feeling. I have no idea about iNtuiting and Sensing.

    I tried to think of a way to organise the info below, but it's easier to just type whatever that comes to mind because they all seem related, so I'm just gonna go ahead.

    - I've been told I'm uptight, and I do think I should learn to go with the flow more. I admire spontaneity and often wish I could just do things like fly off for a holiday without planning a full itinerary of things to do.
    - I like things to be in place and planned, but sometimes I wish I could be surprised (eg having friends throw me surprise birthday party).
    -I've been called a "nazi" when I went through a phase of trying cut down the use of plastic (I still wince internally when people do things like accept plastic bags and then throw them away right after they leave the store, but I won't say anything).
    - I hate the idea of being anal but have been told that I'm nitpicky and get hung up on small things. I'm not sure how much my job as a copy editor has to do with it, and some days I attribute it to the job and feel angry about it.
    - I like making lists (Te?) but may procrastinate over the tasks to do. Ticking off tasks make me feel relieved, because otherwise it will be nagging at the back of my mind.
    - I feel like I am good at seeing more efficient ways of doing things, but an inner voice says I'm being egoistic.
    - I can make myself focus on work even when my emotions are a mess; in fact, I prefer to 'hide' in work to avoid thinking too much about unpleasant personal events because that will just make me a wreck (poor Fi?).
    -I've been told I'm detached, cold, distant, unemotional, insensitive - and sometimes it hurts but I agree so I never say anything.
    - When I feel upset/things don't go my way, I tend to blame myself for having high expectations or doing the wrong thing.
    -I don't like to feel strong negative emotions because I don't really know what to do about it and it doesn't help anyway.
    - I have poor empathy. When people squeal at how cute babies are, I pretend to understand why. I've been known to squee at cats though.
    - I've always felt outside of social groups. I feel that it doesn't matter if I attend gatherings. I have a core group of friends that I meet semi-regularly but I don't really feel close to them. I blame this on my low self-esteem.
    - When I make decisions, I find myself analysing instead of going with feeling, or trying to analyse my feeling which never works. People tell me to stop overthinking.
    - I can get paralysed by decision-making. Sometimes I think this is down to a fear of commitment. Yet, sometimes I feel better when I have made a choice and there is a clear path of what to do.
    - I tend to read up extensively on something that grabbed my interest somewhat compulsively and talk my partner's ears off about it.
    - I enjoy debating on ideas. (eg what is the value of money? what does it mean to love someone?)
    - On conflicts: I'm really bad at resolving them. I tend to walk away. It's hard for me to accept that I could be wrong and I think sometimes it has to do with a lack of self-acceptance.

    I think I could go on but that will just result in a really long-assed post. I've tried to include examples of all the functions. I'll be very interested to hear what anyone else thinks.

    The information provided suggests IxTJ. But this is based on stereotypical behaviour as what you wrote doesn't necessarily indicate any functions other than probable Te/Fi. All you need to know is whether you use Ni/Se or Ne/Si.

    you're right. we need more information about his perceiving functions

    Am I correct to assume he is an E1?

    It is sad that you have weak feelings. Sad indeed. Giving preference to one over the other 'might' not be. However to know whether we have our regrets for choosing one over the other, the ghosts from our dead bodies will have to learn how to speak.

    Indeed.

    Is this the cognitive function test you took, @Rache? http://www.keys2cognition.com/explore.htm

    If not, take it; by internet standards, it's one of the best you're going to get.

    I also thought 5w6 for some reason.

    He gives a 'what is right' vibe which I attributed to E1. Not saying it is so.

    Yes, it is. and here's what i got:

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ***************** (17.3)
    limited use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ******************************************** (44.9)
    excellent use
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ***************************** (29.5)
    average use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) **************************** (28.5)
    average use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) *************************************** (39.7)
    excellent use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ************************** (26.4)
    average use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) *********************** (23.7)
    limited use
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ***************************** (29.4)
    average use

    My problem with the test is that I answered almost all of them "somewhat me" - because i can see how each statement would apply/not apply depending on the scenarios. I think I only answered in the extreme "not me" or "exactly like me" at most 10 times. Thus, I'm not sure how that would skew the result, if it does.

    I read up a little bit on Ne/Si and Se/Ni, but it's all very confusing. I think the only thing I'm sure of is that I have weak Se. I say this because I can be quite oblivious to the surroundings. Once, my friend and I walked past a couple and my friend looked at me and said "Am I the only one to notice that they were splattered in paint?" I can look at people without really looking at them, eg when I board the train I'm focused on looking for a place to sit, so when I look at the people I'm really looking for empty seats. And because of that I miss recognizing someone I know. That person may think I'm unfriendly because apparently I did look at him, but to me, I didn't *see* him. (if that makes sense?)

    If they occur in pairs - can i conclude that since I'm so weak in Se, it's likely I'm more of a Si/Ne then, with a more developed Ni?

    Also, does being a Judger/Perceiver corresponds to having Te/Fi and Fe/Ti?

    I feel like I used to be a P, but somehow have shifted to being a J over the past year or so. Does that even make sense?

    Thanks for this, it gives me a place to start when looking into Enneagrams - which seems daunting and infinitely more complex than MTBI!

    Edited to add:
    Ha! I knew I had taken a test on that somewhere before. And my results:
    Your trifix is 6w5, 1w2, 4w5.

    ISTJ makes the most sense of the three, but I'm not seeing an obvious answer yet. Even though sensing, can have this sort of Se-obliviousness you speak of, since their sensing focus is more internal..... the way you reflect on things also hints at Si.
