    Comparing Si & Se or Ni & Ne is the wrong way to go about it, IMO. Neither IxFP type is characterized by their tertiary.
    I don't have the time or inclination at the moment to discuss the difference between Se & Ne, but I may come back at a later time, if I feel like it. Or just give me a call via a mention if you wanna this input. I had a long discussion with myself the other day in which I clarified all the functions & distinguished them from one another succinctly, but now I have forgotten the details; nonetheless, I am sure I can recall the gist.

    In a way I get that, I don't think my tertiary function is very evident or gets much use.

    Alright, I may just take you up on that a bit later, thanks for the offer.

    If you are in fact S, at least in my opinion it makes sense for you to feel some relation to both Si and Se, though of course one will be stronger. There is a lot of commonality between the two... the most substantial being operating more in the tangible world, using tangible data to navigate. Being an FP would make it a little less concrete, since F is a bit "floaty", but both Si and Se are influenced by tangible environment and influence tangible environment.
    Yeah I think that would explain why I don't feel either extremely grounded and concrete or extremely conceptual, I also think being a 4 attributed to the confusion as well as I've heard most NF's are 4's.

    I would guess at isfp over infp. But, just a vibe.

    I think ISFP. But it's still probably too soon.

    IMO the bold is not a stereotypical thing that an INFP would say.

    They don't want to be put in a box at all. And ISFP's tend to just laugh at that, even though they don't want to either. ISFP's are not as adverse to them as INFP's (stereotypically speaking of course )

    However, I will say, that I do not relate to the "gentle" stereotype both types seems to carry.
    Many of the ISFP's I know, don't either. ISFP's do have a tendency to be cynical. And this can take that "gentleness" way out of focus. I personally think that ISFP's become this way because they are extremely sensitive and gentle when they're young but life's circumstances make them feel like they have to be tougher. I knew an ISFP that was beat up every single day for 2 years in school...and his gentleness is almost all gone. (He is still way more sensitive than I am in comparison though...so that's what I mean by "takes it out of focus." I think perspective can be lost, unless you're comparing them to a "harder" type.)

    Just like when I think of 6's being sensitive, they are way less sensitive than 2's and 4's in general.

    Anyway, back to the main idea, my younger sister is an INFP 9w1, and I feel like I am much more assertive, pessimistic/realistic, and overall life-hardened in comparison.
    While my mother, is an ISFP 6w7, and in comparison to her I feel more secure/steady, more sensitive, more inclined towards artistic pursuits, less paranoid, slightly less aggressive, more fanciful/romantic, and more dramatic.
    Yea, this comparison is what I mean. To me it sounds like you're an ISFP from this paragraph.

    Haha yeah I get what you mean, I think INFP's tend to take that sort of stuff a lot more seriously than I do.

    Yes I thinks that's what happened to me, life made me realize I have to keep my sensitivities hidden.
    Also,I think what's left of my gentleness does accidently seep out from time to time, so I don't think I look quite as tough as say a T might.I also think it may have something to do with being Sx first as well, like skylights said,I don't think I was really ever extremely gentle or anything,from what I remember anyways.

    Yea, this comparison is what I mean. To me it sounds like you're an ISFP from this paragraph.
    Yeah I think I'm a lot more similar to my mother vs my sister, who I feel is my total opposite.
    Hmm yeah I think I'm too grounded and cynical to be an INFP, from what I've noticed with my sister they seem to trusting and optomistic(well at least the 9w1's are).

    Thanks for your input.

    I too really think ISFP. Everything point to it. The not taking yourself too seriously, being grounded and cynical, gentle but aggressive at the same time, skipping school, really creative but just not caring too much about rules, your short and concise answers, and observation instead of speculation.

    Yeah now that I think about it again, it all seems to be pointing in that direction.
