    I hear that, but this is where I agonize: that statement is also very true to my nature as a 4...so how does one differentiate?

    This looks interesting and useful:

    It also ties into why I asked if you feel internally conflicted.

    That's alright, we all have to start somewhere.

    @small.wonder - sorry about your loss.
    Meh, that could describe many INFPs also, probably many IxFx types & even other types, period.

    INFP is not a confrontational type.

    I can relate to that concept for sure, but doesn't everyone to some extent? Yes, I do feel internally conflicted, I think I self sabbatoge a lot.

    INFP is the other type I'm considering. I've been reading a lot about the differences (functions and behavior/tendencies). Some of them I'm pretty torn about, INFJ's have a long term plan/goal while INTP's live more in the moment-- I'm still trying to decide which side I err more on. I relate a lot to the introverted thinking of INFJ, sometimes pausing between thoughts and silently listening when others are speaking. INFP creates ideas (extroverted/creative intuition), and INFJ makes connections between ideas (introverted intuition). That's another tough one to decide which side I fall on, I know I'm creatively inclined but in regards to that? As I said before, I'm also pretty sure that I'm an extroverted feeler (yet I tested high in Fi on a socionics test-- they labelled me EII-Fi? I honestly didn't fully grasp half of the questions though, so I'm not sure how far to trust it.

    Le sigh.

    Even if I don't know which I am yet, I'm glad to be learning the differences so I can truly know (not just think I know). Any other differences or identifying qualities of either INFJ or INFP would be helpful!

    Hmm...I don't fit that aspect anyway. Confrontation is so important to me, maybe it's because my Mom has long been very non-confrontational which I've often seen as childish.

    INFJs have been described as finding confrontation "toxic". You'll find such comments in pretty much any Feeling type profile.

    I would not use socionics to find your Jungian/MBTI type.

    I suggest reading Jung, and the Van Der Hoop descriptions too. These can be found easily on the internet for free.

    Focus on discerning your dominant type - that is your ego. Look less at behaviors & specific "do this or that" than over all mindset. With what mentality do you approach life? That can be good for determining your auxiliary if you're an introvert also. Inferior function is better to spot in yourself than tertiary. It's called inferior for a reason - if it's not antagonistic in your psychology, then it's probably not your inferior. It tends to have a greater influence on you'd like to think, and often negatively. The tertiary is childish & often used as stress-relief, but people tend to overrate it in themselves anyway.

    And of course, this is about personality, so consider how you appear & like to appear to others. INFPs & INFJs have distinctly different demeanors (as far as how they typically appear) that lists of traits fail to capture. Their personas & self-perception can be somewhat similar though, due to both being introverts who prefer feeling & intuition. It can help to think of yourself in an exaggerated way - which caricature is closer to you? Type profiles are kind of like that....

    My behavior/thoughts were similar in similar pet situations. Unfortunately, I don't think it reveals much about type.

    Sorry about your cat though.
