    I know you are a fairy, but just for the record, I do not see you as ISFJ. There is something un-S like about your posts.

    I think pretty strongly you are an intuitive. I am making a leap on introvert (complete guess?). In the post I mentioned, i saw that bouncy bouncy ne thing going on. The the earlier one I posted a link to had an Fi and intuitive vibe. It was like you were talking about feeling tones, and values. An ISFJ -the words would not flow out like that. It would have a completely different look and feel. You could be an ENFP by my analysis above though. I havent dug into this carefully enough.

    I don't know you terribly well, but I just read your older thread about original sin, and you definitely have Ne in there somewhere. The way you hopped around looking for patterns, the playful way you interacted with the other people. You seemed pretty intuitive, maybe even dominantly so.

    I used to think green was INFJ, but the information here in this thread is making INFP seem like the better option.

    LOL.

    I have nothing to add to that, just "LOL."

    My grandma is supposedly an ISFJ, and she gets really freaked out by things that are unexpected and just seem too dang strange.
    You, on the other hand, are (in my opinion) one of the most mentally bright individuals I know, not so much in a rationalistic sense, but more in your intense focus on the creation.
    That being said, I just don't think ISFJ works, and even if it has vague fittings for you here and there, it has way too many boundaries that you break.
    There's only the idea that N types can look similar to S in some ways. Superficially, N types don't dress "normally," they are either odd or flamboyant appearing. However, when an S is depressed or really stressed out over a long period of time, the style of clothing can be "off the wall."

    At a deeper level, the Si types have learned to keep their Si thinking to themselves, and give a "normal" Te or Fe appearance to others. But when Si does appear, it can appear to be as odd as the N. Si-dom has an interest in worldly yet mythological constructs: fairies, hobbits, wizards, dragons, and Gaia, for example. So as far as that goes, for a person with a username like 'greenfairy,' ISFJ is a plausible idea.

    "Simple-minded", huh? Well despite how I may appear online, I doubt anyone I know irl would think of me that way. All experience so far has been the opposite. I do like to make things as simple as possible, because I think it is a certain intellectual skill in itself. It takes more skill to write a stellar philosophy paper in 5 pages than 15. And what is philosophy but making what is complex simple and what is simple complex? As for emotionally volatile, I can definitely see that, but you also have to keep in mind that a forum is an easy place to vent feelings; once again irl most people don't really see that side of me.

    The ISFJ discussion came about because there have been several instances of people saying things in abstract ways such as the ego being oriented toward a certain function, and I asked for clarification because I don't automatically translate that into something concrete. Sometimes connections between what people say and do and what is in their psychology goes over my head; I can pick up on thought patterns and emotions, but it takes awhile to distill that into psychological evaluations, and I don't just immediately notice what type someone is. I tend to take things literally and at face value. If I have something to say I say it- I don't tend to hint around. If I am going to speak figuratively I will use a comparison.

    You mean the part that goes, "and I don't believe I'm SFJ, so there you have it"?

    Which type holds that belief is more important that facts and reason?

    That's not what I meant. I meant by "there you have it" that it follows that I believe I'm NTP, not that I'm right.


    Quick question: does anyone see Te in any of my posts? If I am INFP it should probably be there.

    Is she an informational type? Or is she more of a quick judgment type?

    Quick judgments would be my best guess. She has received lots of input from various members of the forum, but is very slow to adapt her opinions accordingly.
    It took me a very long time to arrive at my current typing though, since I questioned so many people about it, so I guess there's pros and cons both ways.
