    You sound a lot like me in post #7, but maybe that's just my 9 tendency to merge via empathy. Then again, I can read others' "type me" threads and barely identify. Sorry, that was absolutely no help.

    IxTx and either 5, 6 or 9

    Then, either you are ENFJ, or it's to do with how I've spent a lot of times talking to INTPs.

    You seem more Ti than Te. I'm no NFJ but I can see why you identify with Ni, what with having a fairly solid vision of where you see yourself in the future.

    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.

    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.
    we are the same person...

    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.
    except for this part.

    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).

    This is all I have for now. Ask questions to know more.
    we are the same person

    i will think of something substantial to contribute later.

    Do you think I could be ESFJ?

    I don't know much about where I will be in the future, I am just eating my lunch. Today I am having 2 foods that I have had many times before and I have found them to be quite reasonably priced and nutritious and inline with my moral values. Today I have mixed things up by cooking both of these foods together at once in the same oven cooking. I thought this move was a bit risky, but it has paid off in the end. I think I will combine these 2 foods in the same dish in the future more often.

    In all seriousness, what are your reasons for dismissing Ti ego?

    What? I have to be... SERIOUS???

    Ok, welllll, I generally am not very logical. My head hurts going through deductive logic sort of stuff. Like, for example in mathematics, I am great at most of the stuff where I can visualise it, but for example in real analysis, I have a hard time because it requires a fair bit of precise logic.

    I looked the Dario Nardi MBTI threads a few times, where it summarises his studies on the cognitive functions in different types, and I did not relate strongly to the descriptions of Ti or its associated regions. Interestingly, I did relate fairly well to the regions associated with extroverted thinking. This seems quite odd if I am an ENFJ.

    Especially odd if I am an ENFJ, considering I seem to be able to mimick different types anyway. Ne dominants are good at mimicking others. I could be an Ne dominant. Maybe even an ENTP, hmm. Not so sure any more.

    I could type myself differently based on different posts, I will have to go and look in the mirror to see what my facial features suggest or how my eyes look and who I can compare myself to because this would give clues as to what my true type is. That should work, I think.

    You know, honestly though I could just be ISFP.

    I look kinda like a cross between Bob Dylan and Justin Timberlake.
