    I have 2 ISTPs in my family.
    They don't read unless they have to.

    I typically test as INFP, INTP and ISFP.


    This is so confusing!
    I am 95% sure you're IxFx.

    MBTT is based on comparing ourselves to other people.
    I used to think I was observant, which would have made me an "S". That is, until I met my ISTP husband. Then I realized, "Oh! THAT'S what they mean by "observant!"
    My husband eavesdrops on other people's conversations in restaurants.
    My husband knows the color of the bridge downtown.
    He notices the names and orders of all the stores on Main St.
    He knows which of our neighbors take their dogs for walks.
    He looks at the people inside the cars that we meet on the road.
    THAT is S.

    I do not do that.
    I don't want to do that.
    That would exhaust me.
    And if I did actually make the effort, I would probably forget it all rather quickly.
    He does this all effortlessly.

    I take in the big picture.
    I read between the lines.
    I think about underlying motives and hidden connections.
    I can't tell you exactly word for word what somebody said, but I can tell you the gist of it, or tell you what they meant by what they said.


    If it's not too personal, why did you emancipate yourself? What motivated you or pushed you to do it? Cause I'm a little surprised an FP would do that.

    Anyhoo... typing... noting logical inconsitencies sounds quite INTP to me.. in fact I did half of the sutff you did.

    I think I agree with AvereX in that a stream of conscousness may help.

    Btw, what type is your mother? The other types in your family influence how your type displays itself. For example, I like to have things organised... yet I'm a P. It's mainly because ALL 3 other family members were Js!

    I'd say that if you often find yourself thinking about the core of something whilst other's run around addressing the perifory then you could well be an INTP.

    Really? I consider INTP's the first to analyze not the object itself but its implications.

    Edit: Well, the object AND its implications. I Imagine an object in my head with three or so lines sticking out, each moving linear with a number of nodes on them when I consider the INTP thought. I hope I'm not way off. Maybe I'm not getting your meaning of core...Or perifory...But those are pretty common words...I just think of the INTP to have considered the perifory of an object or situation.

    The lines representing possibillities and implications of the object, the length of the lines repressenting the depth of thought

    My analogy was more based on an apple than a pool. The perifory is the detail which often surrounds the core of a subject like an asteroid field. The INTPs I know are most often found byond that field, through the surface of the planet and are dicking about with what happens if you add washing up liquid to geysers at the base whilst other's are still obsessed with the colour the asteroids make.

    For example, when presented with the problem of my sister having arguments with her new husband I did not listen to what she said so much as looked at the overall pattern she created with ehr descriptions, coloured by her own perceptions of course. Using this I saw that the issues were more based around her than she'd like to admit. I didn't address any of the symptoms she brought up. Instead I tried to identify and eliminate the disease.

    Jeepers! Mix metaphors much?

    And periphery, please!

    She's not an INTP. This isn't the way we would go about determining our type.
