    I wrote what I think is important. I think childhood and influences are the most important in typing. Please read it full and then I will be very glad if you will help finding my type.
    I grew up as an only child in loving family. During my childhood I never knew the lack of anything. I really had almost everything that a child can want, but relationship in our family were a bit complex. I think that's why I was such an oversensitive child. I used to cry over anything. But I was also very hyperactive and curious. I always wanted to know how and why things work some way. I loved to learn and discover new things. I also had very high ideals and exact idea how things should be, how are things right. Even as kid I was obssesed with social norms, good behavior, I wanted to please everyone. But I was also extremly stubborn, if I made my opinion about something, or decided I won't do something none could breake me. I was so opinionated even as child. I had problems with too wild imagination and my tendency to live in other worlds and fantazies. I used to make up my own fantasy stories and as soon as I learned to write I started to write these stories down. I had a bit of a problems at school. I wasn't very socially skilled and I struggled to find friends. I also had problems with my attention because I was such a dreamer. I was also very hyperactive and wanted to do everything as first, know everything as first, I wasn't very patient and when the result of my actions wasn't immediate I used to become very angry and had a lot of troubles with finishing projects. Even though I didn't have much friends I was extremly talkative and never knew when to shut up. I was pretty much an "attention whore" as a child.As I grew up I became more reserved, closed and very shy. I went more the way of being a rebel who hates the pop and mainstream culture and I tried to find myself in lot of subcultures like punk, gothic, later grunge. I also became pretty emotially closed and hided my feelings behind pose of not giving a damn about anything. As a teenager I was pretty depressed and emotionally unstable. I found my escape in music, theaters and art. I used to sing, act, play the guitar and piano and I still continued to write. My primary need was to express myself and to be creative. I still had a lot of problems with my anger, tendecy to overreact and drama. I started to be pretty reckless and rude to most of the people. My stubborness was also pretty significant. Later I started to be pretty lazy, had thousends of hobbies, but never finish anything, or did anything really responsibly. I found of my friends in subculture and music clubs. In my late teenage years I got pretty wild and my life became a neverending party. I was with my friends all the time and all my responsibilities became not important. Now I am still just very young adult. I am very close to my writting hobby and study journalism. I hope that it will give me enough of freedom for my self expression and my curiosity about everything new will be also filled. But I still fight with my oversensitivy and very wild emotional world. I also didn't learn how to express my feelings. But I was great in reading other people. I was great in getting into cores of things and people. Even in poetry, or art I was great in reading metaphors, hidden meanings and I've been searching for meaning of everything my whole life. To lot of people I am pretty arrogant, reckless and I have a rude humor. I am egocentric and not caring at all. I can't even imagine having kids, at least not in near future. I am still pretty irresponsible and struggle to get things done. But if I really get myself into something I can get obsessed about it. I can totally get myself into one idea and lost the track about everything else. I am highly idealistic and always try to make myself better, learn new things, but I still struggle to finish them. I am a perfectionist with idealistic outlook on life and somtimes the reality knocks me down, but I really try to be more down to earth. I can be pretty critical about things and I also like analysis. I want know how things work. That is helping me staying more down to earth. I believe only things that make sense after my analysis. I actually love to think about things and I have a bit of philosophic mind. When it comes my plans I tend to be chaotic in lot of ways, but I like to know what will happen ahead. I don't like things that are totally unexcepted. I like changes, but as long as day give me the space to do things the way I think is right. I love to plan the parties, I love to plan for the future and sometimes I make lists and day plans, but I often suck in making them real, becaase I end up doing something else a lot of times. Even though I am really sometimes rude to people I care about them. I like to help and I want to feel as a helpfull person. I try to be good according to my ideals, I try to do things the right way, it's just my lack of patienct and hot temper, that often tend to screw somethings. And also my laziness.

    Do you have an ideas? I am really pretty desperate in finding my type. :-/ . I don't know if it will help, but I can give you my test results. The MBTI type from humanmatrics.com: INTP
    Introvert(22%) iNtuitive(75%) Thinking(1%) Perceiving(67)%
    You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (22%)
    You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (75%)
    You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
    You have distinctive preference of Perceiving over Judging (67%)

    No preference thinking over feeling is basicly what makes my biggest troubles. Later I also made cognitive functions test, but my functions seem to be chaotic and don't fit any type :-/ these are my results:
    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) *********** (11)
    unused
    introverted Sensing (Si) ****************************** (30.2)
    good use
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ************************************** (38.5)
    excellent use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ******************************************* (43.2)
    excellent use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ****************** (18.9)
    limited use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ******************************** (32.2)
    good use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) ********************* (21.5)
    limited use
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ********************************************* (45.3)

    excellent use
    So it looks like my most developed functions are: Ni,Fi,Ne,Ti and my Si seem to be also pretty developed while my shadow functions are Te, Fe and mostly Se... What type uses these functions? It doesn't make much sense. Based on the functions I could be: INFJ, INFP, INTP. I red about the functions and I really agree that my order is Ni, Fi, Ne, Ti , but no type uses them in that order. :-/ ...

    Fi-Ni-Ne-Ti-Si-Fe-Te-Se

    Well N appears to be clear, Ne and Se are the farthest pair away from each other, suggesting ENXP, your top 2 are introverted, but you tested as only slight to moderately introverted.

    I'd say you are INXP, but have developed your Ne to the point where you can be comfortable being outgoing and social. My initial impression was XXFP, but it's not clear to me now that you are F.

    I have a book called Nurture By Nature, which describes the types as children. I want to read more of it and then type you with a more informed opinion. I look forward to it.

    Oh by the way, T and F are the two categories that swap most frequently between tests. So you're not alone with this problem.

    Didnt read the op, but in general if you get a tie between T and F, its usually F due to societal pressure on people being more E S T and J. Also looking at the function test results(which i think is bogus overall, but can help on typing in some cases), it seems you are INFP.

    But if you want to be sure about your type, you just need to learn the system well enough to determine yourself which type fits you.

INFPs use Te over Ti and Ne over Ni while I use more Ni and Ti. I also read alot of posts and articles about NF types and they seem to be caring, empathic people, while I am really much more emotionallly closed to others and more egocentric, than caring. I find it hard to think about other's feelings, or care for them.

    As you said in your OP, you hide your feelings behind a "pose."

    Let me just say that INFJ is not as irresponsible as you claim you are, nor do they have a zillion hobbies and leave projects unfinished. Your mentality is far more scattered than that of the more controlled INFJ.

    Well yeah I have strong Fi and pretty clearly I am an N, so I guess it makes me an INFP... But I still have some doubts. :-/
