    So far you have typed yourself as an INFP, ENFP, INTP and an ENTP.

    This immensely confuzzles me.

    Obviously the test isn't working for you.

    Have you read the profiles of each of these types?

    Which one do you relate to the most?

    People are always so amazed that I know what they are thinking. I'm good at picking up on cues. A lot of times I use it to act a certain way when around others. There are many people who I wouldn't want to show my true self. I don't like being rejected by others.

    In my fraternity, we have this "Senior Speak" function where the seniors give the others advice. All the seniors gave me the advice of 'being myself'.

    From that standpoint, that would make me a empathic NT.
    Yeah, I suspect you're an ENTP. They're the best with Fe out of the XNXP group. From most ENTPs I've spoken with, and myself, we can usually read a social situation in the blink of an eye, Ne and Fe working in happy collusion.

    Another way to tell the difference, at least, that helped me the most, is look at your childhood. I had trouble differentiating if I was an INTP or an ENTP, as I spent most of my High School existence hidden away in my room, glued to my monitor. The thing is, back in Elementary School (What I remember of it...), I was hardcore Ne.

    Hope that helps a smidgeon.

    you definitely seem like a Ti user to me.

    and i doubt you'd be confused by T/F if you were an INTP. so ENTP.

    for some reason i've had lots of trouble typing ENTPs as well. my little brother is one, but i also considered INFP, ENFP and INTP.

    In terms of profiles- I relate most to the ENTP and INFP profiles.
    The INTP is too cold and the ENFP is too warm.

    The other two seem just right.
    I can't relate to the INFP's tendency to discard logic but that could be a poor profile description itself.
    I can't relate to the ENTP's 'social assertiveness' but extraverts aren't necessarily social assertive- just energized by the outside world.

    I can be assertive when I have to be but there are some people who are much more aggressive and outspoken that I often think there's no point in trying to speak over them- even though the tendency is there.

    I would definitely say that I was a hardcore Ne as a child.
    I thought that I would make more friends by being more 'quiet'- so that was something I worked on during my adolescent years- but I don't think it necessarily made me Introverted.


    The reason why I went from NT to NF was that I thought T-types couldn't be empathic but when I saw that wasn't the case- I switched back to NT.

    I've seen tell here, and in other situations and places, that ENTPs are frequently the most intraverted of the Extroverts. I'm not really a terribly chatty or outgoing person in most situations, but if I'm stuck by myself for more than 4 or 5 hours, I die. As far as being a child went, I was extremely sociable, but I generally talked more to authority figures than my peers. I would frequently, through grade school, latch onto adults and pester them for as long as they'd let me.

    You don't strike me as an Ne dom.

    The INTP, I think, would use Ne to understand the external (& his inner) world, but his greatest concentration/investment/orientation is to his inner world, ruled by Ti

    The ENTP would use/apply Ti to his perception of the external world, of which an understanding/orientation is of the utmost

    This is an odd statement, one in which I cannot at all relate to.

    Perhaps I am totally off the mark, but when I read this, I sense an untruth erected by a defense mechanism of some sort.

    Please explain more, if you would.

    remember that Ne has more of a free reign with ENFPs than ENTPs.

    also, it seems like you mistakenly think of an Ne dom as like the equivalent of enneagram type 7. you can be careful and reserved as an Ne dom. (just probably not as careful and reserved as IJs )

    that's how Fe works for a strong Ti user. it's about social strategy.
