    Default INTP, INTJ, INFJ?

    I first took an MBTI test when I was 18 and tested as an INTP.

    Later during my years in college I continually kept testing as an INTJ.

    Now I've tested a few times as an INFJ.


    I have a feeling that I may really be an INTP, though secretly I want to be an INFJ.

    A bit about myself:

    I work in engineering, but most times I think about pursing a life as an artist.

    I live for my ideals which tends to cripple me in alot of ways.

    k.. I think that's enough... I'll answer any other questions if you guys are kind enough to help out.

    Thanks!

    My hypothesis: Tests are unreliable
    Data suggests: Tests are unreliable
    Conclusion: Tests are unreliable

    Look at each one's descriptions carefully, and the cognitive processes order, etc, the tests are usually only 75% accurate :P

    read BWs INTP, INTJ and INFJ profiles. they're somewhere in the NT rationale and NF idyllic. a lot of reading, but you'll know...

    Go for it, I say. If you feel like you want to be INFJ, then maybe that's where you *should* be. You aren't "really" INTP if you don't want to be it. That's what I think...

    It's complicated, but I feel like I may truly be an INTP and I'm oblivious to it, though my actions are most similar INTJ. On top of that, I want to be an INFJ.

    I really need and want to figure this out.

    Sleepless:

    I think there is a good portion of truth in your statement. During the times I've tested as an INTJ or an INFJ, I really feel like my life reflected the changes that I made or were working towards.



    Or is this completely bunk? Is one born a type and forever remain that type?

    you have just one type. learn the functions. are you Ne or Ni? Te or Ti? if you're Ne and Ti, you're INTP. Ni and Te -> INTJ. Ni and Ti -> INFJ.
