    I would put my bets on a F type for you.

    Intps are quite observant (Si maybe) and then they like to break their observations down again and again and again until they reach the core and then they do it again. Ne helps a lot since it's good at seeing possibilities. Possibilities in the head.

    I agree with this. I've always seen her as a dominant intuitive, not leading with a dominant judging fx. This would mean her choices are either ENP or INJ, not ENJ or INP.

    I have thought on occasion that you prefer Ne over Ni.
    Overall, she exhibits characteristics of introverted intuition over extraverted intuition. Convergent versus divergent. For amazing displays of extraverted intuition, see @Mole, who is an INFP (and will hate my tagging of him in this Typology Jungian Nazi cult discussion, but secretly love it!)

    He can take any topic, and respond to it, bringing in random connections, and make a very perceptive point at the end of it (whether you agree or not, is another question). Broad, expansive, receptive, bursting outwards. You can't pin his thoughts down to one singular focus. This is different than certain preoccupations he has. He can take anything and run with it and enjoys doing it!

    Not so with AGA.

    - You love to analyze stuff in a deep way.
    This. AGA seems to love to get to the heart of the matter. She won't entertain multiple lines of thoughts, at once. It's singular in focus. It must all "tie in" to explain the one idea, to its depth.

    Ni and leading with it.

    So, INJ.

    I recall numerous instances in your posts where you seemed to be showing Ti vs. Te
    In how she reasons out her perception, again, I'd agree that it's moreso via Ti than Te. I can't really see a strong preference for Te. I also see Fe versus Fi in her.

    Which leads to INFJ, with possibly a very weak "J".

    Then again, we're no experts.

    Thanks for the responses, Everyone. I really appreciate it!

    I think it bears noting that environment is going to play a role, so talking about typical function order probably won't lend too much help as I think my functions became twisted or bent at an early age, perhaps assuming an introverted attitude when they perhaps should have extraverted.

    I don't know if I was intended to be a Ti dom, but it is possible. It might be that my Ti did not have enough to work with, so my Ne became Ni and I found escape in that. I definitely think my intuition may have taken over me. Adding to this was the fact that from the age of 18 to 41 my primary partner was Ti dom/Se aux means that I deferred to his Ti, allowing other functions, like F, to become more developed. I am processing now (since this INTP diagnosis), that there were many clashes between his version of Ti and my own. As a mother of five and with somewhat of a 9 fix, I would have deferred to his Ti, at the cost of developing my own...And focused more on F which I use for mothering and midwifery.

    Finally, since I have been living alone (with part-time kids) this past few years, I have been becoming more of my natural self; I have a deep and real sense that I have picked up 'where I left off' as a teenager, and am more who God intended me to be. I would really love nothing more than to practice part-time midwifery (because my intuition flies so high with this field and I'm good at it), and full-time Bible translation. I can get lost for hours in Bible translating, and nothing thrills me like it does. So yeah. Also, I'd love nothing more than to discuss avante garde and edgy subjects with intellectuals. That is sort of trademark intp, no? And I get really bummed when I don't have that outlet.

    I also do feel uncomfortable being tied down to a specific plan. As a mother, I did not mind it so much. But as a mother I was in somewhat of a straight jacket all the time, which I believe brought out my FJ side. Which is why I tested as INFJ all those years.

    Kinda like the natural me coming out now I think. Maybe...

    Why does everyone think they're intp now? No I don't think you are either. I think INFJ suits you personally.

    Am I intp too?
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Take the test!

    I wish I were an INFJ. I like the sound of it better.

    I told my friend I feel like being diagnosed as an INTP is like a death sentence.

    What no, embrace it!

    Though the struggle is very real as an INTP female in a world where females are half expected to be ESFJs or related.

    40 is to the new 30 as INTP is to the new INFJ.
