Well, I'd like to start this thread off by
restatingelaborating on the title, as of late, or better said, for quite a some time now I have been having difficulty deciding between INFP and ISFP in regards to my type, in reality, I feel the best way to describe me would be a mishmash of the two; that is to say, I feel like I am both and neither simultaneously.
In regards to that (from what I understand of them)I also feel like I use both Se and Ne on an a nearly, if not, completely equal level, even though I am fully aware of the fact that, that sort of thing clearly does not fit into the framework of Myers-Briggs.
In regards to stereotypes(yes I know,these are never a good thing to get into, but how could I resist?This is as system founded almost completely on stereotypes, after all.), I do enjoy drawing/sketching, playing musical instruments, and very much enjoy writing(although, I was never in honors or formally taught "how to write" per se, due to laziness and incessant ditching in my younger years.).However, I will say, that I do not relate to the "gentle" stereotype both types seems to carry.
Although most of my book ideas tend to stay within the confines of my head, where I twist and shape them, rendering them almost unrecognizable before tossing them aside due to being not perfect enough.The furthest I've ever gotten in regards to bringing my ideas to life, so to speak, on the page, has been writing a few pages of the introduction before again tossing them because they where not good enough. I know where I want to go in the grand scale of things, I know where I want to take the plot, what I want it to say, but it's the journey of having to link all the little parts together where I falter most tangibly, I have no patience for the random tidbits unimportant to the main plot line.
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.
So to finish this admittedly long winded question off, based off what I have shared here(or from my other threads if you so desire), what would you say my type is?
I am very much appreciative of anyone who took the time to actually read the gargantuan piece of shit above, as well as anyone who can offer some insight.
