    I meant all that that is not person. Yet it intrigues me.

    Not sure what word would qualify it.

    ^ This sounds a bit like FiTe to me? I may be wrong. Also, being a feeler doesn't necessarily mean that people have a lot of sway over you, particularly with Fi. Being a feeler doesn't necessarily mean that you're stupid and/or unreasonable either- it just means that you tend to output or input (Fe or Fi) things emotionally before you output or input them without emotion (Te or Ti). I don't have a lot of evidence/experience with you to go off of, but from what I've seen from your posts, I would agree that you appear to be a feeler.

    So what? Perhaps an immortal essence of cognitive divulgence, separated from the vessel that contained it, which interests you absent from its original attachments?

    That makes total sense. I would say the same about the aux, though to a lesser degree.

    Have you considered INTJ? I think sometimes women can test as INFJ who are actually INTJ. Those two types can be very closely related especially if the T and F functions are about equal.

    Well, I have considered it. I can be Tish for periods of time, it's true, which is why I had to see if INTP fit. I watched Highlander's intj film on here and I really do not resonate much with it, because I am not detached from my emotions. I emote easily and often. I also CAN repress my feelings for sure, but when prodded, share readily. I do not see my INTJ son doing that.

    Thanks for your thoughts though.


    I just crocheted this rainbow hat for a friend and I am so pleased with how well it turned out!

    In most cases people are much more complex than MBTI theory, and I'm not convinced that everyone's functions line up to match one of the 16 types. They serve as interesting approximations, and it can be helpful to find these more abstract commonalities with others and ways to better understand self.

    The question you raised by stating that you do not experience much influence from others is an interesting issue for INFJs. I find for myself I experience both extremes. I'm impervious to "peer pressure" in acquaintance and friend environments, but mold like putty with a few people I've ventured to trust and connect to as my personal source of support.

    Neither are many of the INTJs I know. Three or four of them yell at their computer monitor when posting.
    Type =/=emotions.

    If there's a film out there suggesting if you're emotional you're not INTJ, I'd ignore the film.

    Entirely agreed. One of the interesting parts of the SLOAN/Big Five assessment is that four of the dichotomies correlate more or less with MBTI dichotomies, indicating that they're measuring more or less the same thing. The fifth dichotomy of SLOAN, Neuroticism, correlates with nothing in MBTI, thus suggesting that being emotional (limbic) vs unemotional (calm) is independent of MBTI type.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
