    Default Need help figuring out my type

    Hi everyone! I'm new here, just signed up today. I really need help finding my type. I don't like tests or questionnaires, because I feel like they're too subjective & susceptible to change, or maybe I just don't know myself good enough. Really, I think I could be any of the 16 mbti types & any of the 9 enneagram types. One thing that I do think speaks volumes about me is my favorite quotes. I've been compiling tons that I've found online or else over the last, at least, 2+ years. I was hoping if I posted them here maybe you guys could pick up a vibe from them that could help type me. I'd love some feedback.

    "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently --they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."- Steve Jobs

    Hey there! Welcome to the forums, @DreamBeliever!

    It's a bit difficult to determine one's personality when you use the words of others, but your quotes all seem to be fairly indicative of a feeling type. What if I show you some descriptions and you tell me if one feels more like you than the other? These are a bit different because they aren't descriptions of specific types.

    Do either of these two feel more like you than the other?



    vs.



    Do you generally prefer to initiate or respond in conversations?

    Initiating...


    Responding...


    This one is a bit more difficult to decide between, but how do you feel about directing vs. informing?

    Directing...


    Informing...



    Once you answer these, I'll have a few more questions for ya.

    Thank you! I like your Mickey Avatar by the way. Ok, based on those descriptions I'd say I'm more Connecting, Responding, & Informing.

    Haha thanks.

    Based on those responses, ISFJ seems like the fit for you. But let's try a few more descriptions to double check.

    Do you feel more like behind-the-scenes or chart-the-course?

    Behind-the-scenes...


    Chart-the-course...

    This is possibly the hardest one for me to answer, but I'm going to go with Behind-the-scenes.

    Ok, just a few more, I promise! These descriptions aren't the greatest, so I understand if you have a hard time with it or if it doesn't go along with my thinking.

    1 or 2?

    1


    2


    1 or 2?

    1


    2



    Which one?

    Protector Supporter


    vs.

    Hmm...your earlier responses seem to indicate ISFJ, while the later ones more so indicate INFJ. I'm not entirely sure which one you are, but I think I'm leaning toward the latter. Do you have an opinion on these two?

    Well I've known at least 2 ISFJs & 1 INFJ, all guys so not sure if it would make a difference that I'm a girl, but I definitely feel more like the INFJ out of them. I do know that I always felt more connected to the NF/SP archetypes than the NT/SJ ones, but I wouldn't want to rule anything out based on stereotypes.

    Yeah, I don't really like the way Si is described in most cases. Si =/= traditional! But everyone seems to think it does.

    I wonder if @EJCC wouldn't mind coming in and giving us a better description of Si. She'll have a Te-tint to hers, though.
