    The theory is rather that because of cultural bias (male identity and stereotypes), male INFJs will focus on and exaggerate the degree to which they use Ti, and maybe wrongly think they use it more than Fe. Self-observation isn't an easy thing.

    why, though, would your middle two functions have to be in a specific order?

    and whats the difference between exaggerating the degree of usage of Ti and actually using Ti more often?

    i'm way more sensitive to the feeling world (Fe) than INTPs though. (but some of the people that i teach MBTI to swear i'm INTP)

    INFJs commonly mistype themselves as INTPs.

    don't get tripped up by the P/J divide. are you an Ni user or Ne user? does your Fe hinder your actions significantly? those are the questions you should be asking yourself.
    I'm starting to think I'm more of an INTP but with a fairly developed Ne. Also, I'm guessing my somewhat difficult past helped me to develop my F side a good deal and taught me how to use the other side of the continuum for the other aspects. My mother thought that I was a ESTJ for the longest time. Nuts, huh?

    interesting. it was the opposite for me; my past made me repress my F to the point where i basically lived in Ni+Ti mode. which is of course why i typed myself as (and am constantly typed as) a T.

    i only developed my Fe as i became more introspective/healthy.

    the MBTI letters are misleading...INTPs and INFJs seem much more alike than INTPs and INFPs or INFJs and INTJs. (i find that different judgment functions lead to much more disagreement than different perceiving functions.)

    I guess perception compatibility means you "see" (take in) things the same way, but judgment is sort of the "output", and not being judgment compatible will cause clashes as you react to things in different ways.
    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)
    Ti 54.3 | Ne 47.3 | Si 37.8 | Fe 17.7 | Te 22.5 | Ni 13.4 | Se 18.9 | Fi 27.9

    Haha, that sounds very logical. I took the test again using my gut and I got IXXP so I took the tie-breaker and got the NF temperament.

    meh; people on the fringe of T and F are impossible to type with dichotomies. you really have to learn the functions.

    you could also try this test:
    Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes

    not amazingly accurate, but it might be a good starting point.

    I guess I'm the dichotomy. I base my decisions on how other people might feel and reasoning way more than the way I feel. It's time for me to just accept not really fitting into a type and be unique but thank you very much for your insight!

    I like to base my decisions on how other people might feel and logical facts way more than the way I feel.
    That sounds pretty "Fe Ti" to me. (aka.. INFJ)
