    Default Is wheelchairdoug ISFP, ISTJ, or something else?

    Self-explanatory. I figure instead of derailing 50% of the threads I'm posting in as of late, everything related will go here.

    I remember when I used to gether everyone's opinion on my type, and dang, it's way too tough knowing who's right or who to listen to.

    Maybe the best course of action is to do your own independent research and see what resonates best with your character.

    If I hadn't already, I wouldn't bother with a thread. I'm not that lazy.

    Okay, well perhaps you should outline what your essential qualities are within each type in a box or something, then compare those qualities against each other.

    You could also copy and paste little pieces of type descriptions from various internet sites and put those in boxes as well to also compare with your outlined personal qualities.

    You've probably thought of this, but here's some things I find to be the most helpful.

    I find that the best way for someone to type themselves is to think about how they act under stress, and just as importantly, what circumstances make them become stressed in the first place. Not just any situation that would make anyone stressed... just the particular ones that you personally are sensitive to. It's difficult to figure out our primary on its own, since we usually think this is just how I am rather than being able to fit ourselves into the framework. So its easier to go about from the inferior function... i.e. what we usually are not, but what we become under stressful times. So I ask, what puts you under the most stress, and how do you behave/what do you do/how do you think?

    So if your main options are ISFP and ISTJ, is your Te weak and sensitive, and comes out in negative circumstances, or is it rather strong and do you rely on it in regular circumstances? An ISTJ under stress will think up of lots of negative possibilities that might be downright illogical, because of the inf-Ne.

    Are you more open-ended and "relaxed" in your inner world, or the outer world? Whichever one you are, you'll be more decisive and come to conclusions about things in the opposite world.

    A fairly good indicator of being either J or P-dom is think if you impose agendas on yourself at the start of the day. P-doms more often than not start the day in an open-ended manner, whereas J-doms do not.

    Finally, bear in mind that some people relate more to their secondary function than the primary and are more aware of it, since it uses a little more energy. The primary function is working constantly, so it may go under the radar.

    @Infinite Bubble

    In negative circumstances, my reaction tends to go one of two ways- I overcompensate, direct a ridiculous amount of effort into trying to 'fix' the issue, even if i know it wont work, or I become paranoid, depressed, and (sometimes) combative- often both, or the first and then the second.


    I don't impose agendas or lists on myself at the start of the day. My parents are more J-like in this aspect- they write down or have a definite mental image of what specific things they want to accomplish that day. I typically think ahead about what needs done and often play out how it should happen in my head and have a vague idea of my approach, but I don't usually go into specifics unless it's needed.

    What puts me under the most stress?

    Loud and obnoxious conflict where there's no reasoning to be done, being late, not believing I can achieve what I want, not seeing myself as being or as able to be as successful as I want.


    I feel like values conflicts should be emphasized more in this post, but they don't typically stress me out as much as they piss me off.

    My instinct is to say ISTJ, but it's possible that you're just a J-heavy ISxP... Kind of like @Such Irony and her Si-usage.

    Maybe you should link your questionnaire answers here, from that other thread? Having more hard data ought to help with this.
