    Hmmm. I'm not an ESTJ because I'm special! But seriously, it doesn't fit at all. I'm pretty sure I'm not an ESFJ because I know a guy like that, and he's more charismatic than I am. I think that ENFJ is pretty plausible, because I've never met one and don't know what they are like. I don't think that ENTJ is likely because I just don't think I fit with the examples I know. I'll take a look at at those alternatives.

    I am pretty sure of my type (INFJ). But that persuades me that maybe it isn't my type. So, here are 4 questions and a statement:

    1. I don't have a big presence on this site, but for anyone who has noticed me, do I seem 'INFJ'-like? Do you see any discrepancies?

    2. I didn't want to be this type to begin with, and would be happy to be told I am a different one. At first I thought this was evidence I was an INFJ, but I think it can cut both ways.

    3. I can't ever be sure if I really use Ni as a dominant function because it is always possible that I'm wrong. I understand it rather well at an intellectual level, and I can see the functions (I think) when I look for them in others, but it could be that I don't really understand myself. I have applied a number of different frameworks to myself and find INFJ most convincing, but I could easily have deceived myself.

    4. I have a bad memory and a strong sense of deja vu today, so someone tell me if I already made a thread like this. I apologize in advance.

    MY STATEMENT: I am the kind of person who tries to imagine what other people think, then says "But probably they don't think about you at all because people don't go around thinking of others", and then says, "But if they did think of me, they would think x, y, and z, so I should do such and such next time I see them because I can tell I am not making (whatever we do) go as well as it could." Then I go on to think about the mistakes I made last time (not specific mistakes, but more like 'was what I said in tune with the music of how the interaction is supposed to go?'). And I think of how I should make things go next time. I like to optimize interactions.

    Note: I used the word "I" 32 times in this post, excluding this note.
    Perhaps you are not self-actualized enough to know yet. Go live life for a while then come back.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    Well, it was just first impressions so it may be woefully inaccurate.

    Why do think INFJ, and what types do you get on tests? (They typically give a rough estimate. Sometimes very rough, but still.)

    Ha ha. I am really bored with life right now. No money. I'll live once I have the money to do so. I don't care about money, but you can't deny it's needed to do much of anything. So I guess I wouldn't care if lack thereof didn't get in my way.

    INTJ, INFJ, INTP. I think INFJ because I believe I am an Ni dom, and I easily live in a dream world with no connection to the real one. I have very weak Te, but not bad Ti. I am good at envisioning an outcome, or an ending, that I want to actualize, but I become paralyzed because I don't know how to take the steps to get there. Also, I think I do Fe well in limited doses since people are almost always favorably impressed by me in person.

    But this doesn't satisfy me at all because I'm always thinking that I've been cut off from the rest of the group, even when there is no group, so I work really hard to meet lots and lots of people. But that's So more than anything else, I think. I don't actually invest a lot of effort into these many relationships because if I did, I'd have no time for anything else. I'm mainly just trying to stabilize my position in the world while I figure out what I am going to do in life. I've pretty much settled on emigrating to Germany as a good long-term goal for me to aim at (it should force me to concentrate my forces), so I'm trying to start gearing up to do that.
