Hi guys I'm new to the forum (just joined today). One thing that has been bugging me a lot and drove me to join is difficulty assigning a personality to myself. I have a little experience in personality theory but would like others' opinions. To help you guys narrow it down, I'll start with what I know; I know I'm a Ni dom. The questions I (and other people, lol) often ask me is whether I'm an INTJ or INFJ. At various times I've identified as either one but not really felt at home with either description. Here are my results from the cognitive Function test at Similar-Minds:
Te (Extroverted Thinking) (45%)
your valuation of / adherence to logic of external systems / hierarchies / methods
Ti (Introverted Thinking) (50%)
your valuation of / adherence to your own internally devised logic/rational
Ne (Extroverted Intuition) (45%)
your valuation of / tendency towards free association and creating with external stimuli
Ni (Introverted Intuition) (100%)
your valuation of / tendency towards internal/original free association and creativity
Se (Extroverted Sensing) (0%)
your valuation of / tendency to fully experience the world unfiltered, in the moment
Si (Introverted Sensing) (50%)
your valuation of / focus on internal sensations and reliving past moments
Fe (Extroverted Feeling) (50%)
your valuation of / adherence to external morals, ethics, traditions, customs, groups
Fi (Introverted Feeling) (70%)
your valuation of / adherence to the sanctity of your own feelings / ideals / sentiment
based on your results your type is likely - infj
I notice some other people have been answering a questionnaire, so maybe that will help:
The time of the day, actually. I have a strong diurnal cycle, I tend to be a lot clearer and more logical in the morning. Tiredness brings out the worst of me, I can sometimes get angry and shitty with people. And I've just take a break from writing a hard essay so I'm not the calmest I could be. I'd take that test score with a grain of salt lol, it's just a rough indication.0. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a stressful time, mental illness, medications, special life circumstances? Other useful information includes sex, age, and current state of mind.
I'm not that good at describing pictures, sorry, but i'll try...what really stands out to me the most is the general symmetry/structure in the picture, the sense of order, and how that little flower in the foreground disrupts it. The flowers in the right foreground also seem quite imposing and aggressive, as if they're reaching towards me. Whoever has taken this photo has done a great job with the camera angles to create the contrast.1. Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.
My initial thought would be frustration, with everything, and i'd mentally be making estimates about how much later we'd be. I'd also very quickly get restless and impatient, as I'd immediately start thinking about alternative ways to get to the concert. My outward reaction would be anger, I'd probably say something, but then I'd figure to what to do next.2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?
Well i wouldn't go to an after-party, as I mentioned I'm not an evening person. So I'd be ambivalent at best. But it would really irritate me that the driver decided to. I would've thought part of his job/contract would be to drive us straight back after the concert. In that situation I'd arrange for a taxi to take me back home but I would take the driver's name and complain to the company about what had happened the next day.3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty that was announced (and assure you they won't drink so they can drive back later). How do you feel about this party? What do you do?
Ignore it. I'm pretty confident in my views, and as I don't like conflict with my friends, they mean a lot to me. I may know that what they're saying is wrong but I realise that it's not worth arguing about. I would frown, use facial expressions to show I disapproved.4. On the drive back, your friends are talking. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward reaction? What do you outwardly say?
It depends a lot on what you're talking about. I am generally pretty adaptable and open to changing my way of doing things as long as my beliefs, principles are not being violated in some way. For example if I failed an assignment due to procrastinating and starting too late I would at least try and adjust my work schedule. But my way of actually perceiving the world is inviolable and is not changing for anyone.5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
My most important values are loyalty, honesty and integrity (which are really all variations on the same theme). I am not sure how I came about determining them to be honest, I think they're just a part of who I am, and they're not going to change. It takes me a long time to trust someone fully, though I have a habit of "just knowing" without evidence whether someone is a good or bad person. Once i trust someone I will stick with them pretty much whatever (this has been abused a bit).6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
Probably how reflective I am, how I see trends and think in the terms of the future, I dislike people who are unable to see the long term consequences of their actions. If I could change one thing about my personality, it would be either being more confident socially (especially with girls) or being less perfectionist.7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?
I just have them, they're part of how I make decisions generally. It's kind of hard to explain (sorry I'm not being helpful here).8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
I get most energized with new knowledge and experiences, especially traveling, as well as listening to, playing and composing (as long as I'm not under too much stress) music. What drains me the most? I'm not quite sure but sitting at a desk for hours having to write essays, like I've had to do recently, would be near the top...9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
I pretty much freak out so go on autopilot when talking to girls so it's hard to say, I'm pretty nervous about how I'll be perceived. With other people I guess I'm thinking about not reveling things that might be used against me later while being forthright and engaging. It's a balance.10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
