    Maybe you are something in between.

    Couldn't that be plausible?

    I was talking about this with my sister today who has taken the official test and has typed as an "INFP". (And I don't think that is accurate, at all)

    I think that the MBTI is not necessarily an accurate tool of personality assessment for everybody, i.e. that many people do not fit into the 16 types.

    I took the test, typed as an ENFP, and was blown away by the accuracy of the profile.

    I have 2,500 posts on this site, but...

    I cannot type *anybody* that is close to me, they just don't seem to exhibit traits that clearly correlate to any one specific type.

    Basically, what type do you *sincerely* relate to most?

    I, for one, know that people tend to be pretty poor self-analysts and hence test all over the place.

    Why does it matter to you which type you are?

    Wouldn't you be you, first, and foremost, and then either relate to the personality profiles or not?

    Perhaps the MBTI is not for you.

    It seems like an odd thing to do for one to try to squeeze themselves into a stereotype that doesn't even fit.

    ^ And I am sorry if my tone seems hostile, I have just been passionately thinking about this for awhile, so, yeah.

I think I'll read a book about hiking in Alaska and consider planning a trip there.

    I know what will happen, because I tried that already! I really need to be more careful and consider the logical consequences of my exploration of all possibilities. Maybe I should keep my mouth shut and think about things more before I say anything too! Sitting around just thinking about things is boring, and I don't like to focus on one thing for very long anyway! That Alaskan hiking trip last week was fun! Next month, I want to go to the jungles of South America!
    Describing the two types behaviorally is exactly the right way to distinguish them. Between a day and a week of real-life observation and interaction with an ENTP and an INTP are all that's necessary to figure out which is which.

    So if this were in fact the case, which I actually agree with if the person was either one of the two, wouldn't it then be odd if a person didn't know if they happened to be one or the other?!?!

    My point is , is that perhaps, in this case, they'd be, or are neither.

    There is no in between. MBTI can grasp any personality right. Every further consideration would implicit that there is a need for a refined system, because the MBTI is limited in its associations. And to pinpoint out single things as not fitting in MBTI would simply be unfair confronting the whole thing

    I don't think so -- especially not if they lacked self-awareness or had a false sense of self.
