    Default Difficult Types to Type

    Which is the most difficult MBTI type call to make? Is it ISFP?

    No, it's definately ISTP. I might be a TiNi-looper, but I could just as easily be a classic INTP; I'm not sure which is right. ISTP is the most confusing and unpredictable type. They are rational yet adventurous, and calculating yet spontaneous. One moment they may be doing nothing, and then the next moment they spring into sudden action. They like to observe things, and they also like to think about things. ISTPs craft clever solutions to complex problems.

    By the way, I just looked at your very provacative signature @Mal+, and I am definately repulsed!

    You mean the Family Guy quote in the middle? Yes, Family Guy is repulsive. That's why it's so popular - just like yours truly.

    As for "They are rational yet adventurous, and calculating yet spontaneous." Much the same could be said for the ISFPs. They are family-oriented and devoted, but have this desire for adventure that needs to be satiated. These two traits are quite in opposition to each other.

    I don't think there are any specific types per se, but if someones outward behavior is contradictory to the known stereotypes, they can easily be mistyped by others. But if I were forced to choose, I'd say INFJ. Male ones especially, can look a lot like INTPs/INTJs in my experience.

    You bring up the complicating factor of gender. It IS a known fact that the ISFJ/ESFJ male will act like the socially-accepted male stereotype. This would make typing them more difficult.

    from my experience - ENFJs.

    one type - the mannerism-spectrum to rule them all.

    Enneagramwise, type 9. They are said to be the type that often sees themselves in many other types. Type 6 seems to have this tendency too and there is wide varation among the 6s. Phobic vs. counterphobic. SP, SO, and SX 6's can look like completely different people. Counterphobic 6's in particular often look like 8's.

    INFJ is pretty misunderstood and I think mistyped as a result of those misunderstandings. I should make a list of everything people have said to describe INFJ because there are a great many conflicting assumptions.

    I've noticed a fair amount of confusion with INTPs as well for some reason.

    I tend to think that it would be an introverted type that uses a lot of "N", which could actually include the ISFP who has tertiary Ni.
