    Well, that quote in particular, I'm not so sure about. It sounds quite reasonable.

    However, I was reading some of Lewis' theological material (Mere Christianity), and I was amazed by how similar his thoughts are to my own. I was like, wow, that's pretty much my thoughts only better expressed. So, I inferred from that that he and I would be the same type in the MBTI.

    At the moment, I'm leaning towards INTJ for myself. In terms of cognitive functions, I would say that due to my high levels of introversion, I can sometimes seem to be an F because the Fi sort of overtakes the Te quite often. (I don't know if that sentence can really be translated into your dichotomy-based approach, though. I guess you would just put an X or mark the preference as slight?)

    As you know, I don't frame things in terms of "Fi" and "Te," but when it comes to middlish preferences and slight/mild preferences on, e.g., T/F, I think it makes sense for somebody to indicate that they feel pretty much middlish (or uncertain) with an "X," and for somebody who feels like they have a preference but it's notably mild or borderline (and/or maybe somewhat open to question) by lowercasing it (e.g., INfJ).

    How do you indicate a split personality?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "split personality," but there are many kinds of psychological phenonema that are outside the bounds of the MBTI & Big Five.

    Both the Big Five and the Step II MBTI include the idea of "facets," though, and the idea that somebody could have, in effect, a combination of what you might call (in MBTI terms) "T tugs" in certain areas and "F tugs" in other areas. I don't have any strong views on how much validity there is to the "facets" idea, and haven't spent any time pondering what the best way to "indicate" facet preferences would be in terms of elegant labeling.

When going through the most stressing period of my life thus far, I became very suspicious of others, and saw my successes and built up images crumbling away. However, this last part can be explained without typology.
    ISFj is famous for powerful Fi that can very subtly and unobtrusively shift the emotional environment of whatever group of people it finds itself in. It naturally and unconsciously creates calmness, comfort, and harmony (when it wants to). It is also democratic and naturally suspicious.

    ISFj = ESI in Socionics (may be either ISFJ or ISFP in M/B typology)

    @Kheledon: Yeah probably.

    More interested at the moment in how the fuck is exactly even though. :/

    Not sure what you mean, here. I'd be happy to give you more feedback, if you'd like, but I can't quite figure out what you're "more interested" in at the moment.

    what you describe here are traits for a INTP, so I'm going with that xD

    Well, if two things are the same, then their difference iz zero, so zero must mean exactly. Now, zero is an even number, but to be even is to be a multiple of 2, but how can you multiply something and end up with less than you started with? This is a constant dilemma for me.

    Lol, just being silly.

    Typing self-confirmed:

    I am very quiet, always getting comments as such, and can only really talk at length on particular subjects, or subject which require a certain kind of philosophical analysis. The subjects I am most drawn to are mathematics, philosophy, certain aspects of psychology. Science is ok, but I don't really like doing the experiments - I'm generally not a very hands on person, though I can be quite crafty. When it comes to homework and other things, I am definitely one to leave things until the last minute, though I've usually figured out how to do a problem in my head, so that when it comes to putting it down on paper I know the rough line I need to take and how long it will take.
    - Fe

    I like to think visually, for example, seeing concepts represented in pictures in my head, or closing my eyes and seeing transforming sets of visuals - as a hypothetical example, I may see a bird fly around the sun, then cover it, and a face appear on the bird. I have a tendency to read into what people say in the sense of thinking of how what they say would make sense in a different context - however this may be due to paranoia.
    - Ni

    I naturally dwell a lot on the past, trying to figure out what I could have done differently in certain situations (though I see this as a negative trait which I am trying to counter). I tend to view the future in somewhat simplistic terms, seeing essentially a linearity with the past, as opposed to a breeding ground for new ideas and possibilities. For example I may tend to see my life in the future as the archetypal "job, house, wife" set up, giving time frames for when I would like to achieve what.
    - Se

    I am at the same time generous and stingy - I will give to others as though it makes no difference whether I have something or they, but I will tend to not spend much and spend cheaply where I can. When interacting with others, I try to be warm, laughing at others jokes, giving a look of concern where it is due, and trying to make sure things run smoothly (except when something is done in good humour).
    - Ti

    This is all I have for now. Ask questions to know more.
    Conclusion: ENFJ
