Alright. I've narrowed myself down to INFP and ENFP based on responses I was given on an earlier thread I posted. I just feel like I didn't give enough information regarding the I/E. Whether I'm using traditional MBTI with dichotomies, or Jungian function theory, I just can't get an insight on either one. I'm an ambivert, and I seem to use Fi and Ne at equal capacity.
Here is some of my reasoning for each type. I would really appreciate your impressions.
Argument for INFP
-I was a cautious child. I didn't walk or ride bikes until later than most. I was never a daredevil of any sort.
-I was also shy when I was little. I had trouble making friends, and at one point I even had to be in a "lunch bunch" group. (The group was trying to teach friendship making skills.)
-At recess, I often played alone. I skipped around the playground like it was my little dream paradise. I actually preferred indoor recess so I could draw or write stories.
-I believe my Fi was pretty developed for my age. I journaled about my place in the world and who I was. I remember writing about the distress I felt about being "meaner than usual."
-I was described as easygoing, sensitive, and a peacemaker. I often got the short straw of my family.
-I dislike small talk--the weather, what classes I'm taking, the monotony of day-to-day life.
-I avoid conversing with strangers. It makes me uncomfortable.
-Of stranger interaction, I dread most the conversations with manicurists or barbers. (You can't escape that way!)
-After prolonged socializing with people I'm not that close to, I feel the need to get away and end the interaction.
-I'm often very quiet at first (teachers have confirmed this). I then open up after a bit of time.
-I can get overstimulated.
-Small group discussions are preferable to large group discussions.
-I get energy from being by myself.
-Sometimes I'm energized simply by thinking about who I am, or being myself--whether that means being alone or with other people.
Argument for ENFP
-Some years I was quite boisterous, and got in trouble for talking too much or going off on too many tangents.
-I enjoyed performing for others.
-I could be very dramatic, showy, and animated.
-I tended to blurt things out.
-A lot of times I really do enjoy the spotlight. I love public speaking and seminars when I'm able to express my views, feelings, and creativity.
-Around people I'm comfortable with, mostly my closest circle, I often dominate the conversation.
-I get a lot of my energy from being with my circle, or in seminars/public speaking where I can express my viewpoints.
-I'm often dramatic.
-I'm able to get on well with almost anyone. I'm good at talking to people.
-I have a strong need to change the world. I'm usually easygoing or lazy, but when I really care about something, I pull my act together and really get sh*t done (is that Te?).
Thank you so much for reading all this! <3 Would you mind telling me what you think?
