    Default INTP?

    This MBTI "expert" is convinced I'm an INTP.

    I think INFJ fits better...but I've been called an INTP so many times...

    Can you guys see it? If I were to list the top 2 types I could fit, I'd definitely say INFJ and INTP.

    I do think INFJ fits better, though...

    Thoughts?

    It's not totally crazy.

    You like to debate abstracts and you seem to place a lot of value on your ideas. It also looks like you like to top with your ideas and tinker them. On the other hand, I think your observational skills are stronger than your debate skills (but I honestly could be wrong). I would guess XNTP or INFP.

    I'd guess you were an INTP before INFJ--your posts ooze Ti. Then again, I'm not very good at distinguishing Ti from Ni.

    Sure, why not.

    INTP ~ INFJ

    I rarely understand either of these types.

    And yes, I don't really get you.

    And yes, I definitely have a lot of Ti. I could easily see INTP for myself.

    I would say you have extraverted perception and introverted judgment. Alas, I can only say that I intuit it.

    So if you guys had to rate INTP or INFJ as a best fit type, would you say INTP fits better?

    Seems like the responses so far trend towards INTP.

    Well, an INFJ can appear a lot like an IxTP when they're "in the grip" of tertiary Ti. But a true INTP can't really appear to be Ni. Just pointing out something based on theory. I haven't posted here long enough to say anything about your type either way.

    It's tough to say.
    I noticed a lot of Ti and a lot of Ni in your posts.
    I would say you are either an INFJ with a well-developed Ti or vice versa.
