    Skyward, dear, you are not an INTJ.
    I have just finished reading all your posts.
    You remind me a LOT of my 18 year old ISTP son.
    Your very first MBTI test showed INTP.
    Was that administered through your school?
    My son has a "posse" also.
    My son is self-conscious (a little shy around strangers)
    My son cares about how he looks.
    My son needs to be appreciated.
    Do you happen to like being "cool".

    No, it was an MBTI test I took early in my 'know thyself' venture a while ago.

    My son has a "posse" also.
    That may not be an S thing, but could be more of an I thing.

    My son is self-conscious (a little shy around strangers)
    I definitely can be.

    My son cares about how he looks.
    I guess I do to some extent. I like to keep things simple

    My son needs to be appreciated.
    For me its the knowledge that I'm useful in some way. I like to contribute, and if people say that I am an asset to the group or to them self I feel good. I like being there for people if they want to talk.

    Do you happen to like being "cool".
    Well its more of a flipside - I don't like being left out on purpose for things, it makes me feel like I'm not useful.

    Another thing is that after most things I say I usually reflect for a second "I could have said that better"

    Could someone give me their little run-down on ISTP and INTJ? I takes the descriptions in places too literally (More points toward S!)

    Even more points toward S is that I tend to take things at face value more often than not and I dont usually think with metaphors although I can easily grasp them. Enneagram 6 probably has a lot to do with why I don't feel compelled to be reckless.

    When looking around and getting a sudden epiphany, I found that ISTJ may work too. Since Ive been studying MBTI a lot before actually trying to work on knowing myself. The 'Study before I move'

    Edit for the umpteenth time: What I find is that I also learn better with people adding to the conversation, giving ideas I haven't thought of or explaining things as they see it.\

    Edit Umpteenth+1: I dont like super-dry technical material like computers or hardware of any kind but I could read a book on mythology pretty readily.

    *Nod* I've been reading those a bit. The 'Economy of effort' part of ISTP really rings true to me. I always thought it was just because I'm lazy

    Another thing to muddy the waters with is how adolescence affects the brain. I read somewhere that the sensory cortex is the first to develop. Thus S would be more dominant until everything else grew up too. Like siblings or bullies, the biggest one picks on the younger ones but the younger ones end up being just as big as him when -they- grow up.

    Also during Adolescence, the amygdala (Seat of the emotions) is used more often. This adds to the F, I think. There is also more endorphins in the system, adding a lot more to doing what we feel like rather than what's to be done (Since we are more in tune to loss of endorphins)

    Though these conclusions may just be bunk, I don't have much understanding of how adolescence differs from 'normal' times for the brain.

    You might be reading too much into that.
    Someone who knows what they're doing can usually determine the type of someone as young as 8, or even younger.

    Now is the perfect time to determine your type.
    When I type someone older, I have to ask them to try to remember how they were during their elementary, middle and high school years.

    SENSING
    Concrete: What do we know? How do we know it?
    Realistic: What are the real costs?
    Practical: Will it work?
    Experiential: Can you show me how it works?
    Traditional: Does anything really need changing?
    Ive been seeing myself use Se more, pulling info from outside and deciding things from there.

    THINKING
    Logical: What are the pros and cons?
    Reasonable: What are the logical consequences?
    Questioning: But what about...?
    Critical: What is wrong with this?
    Tough: Why arenít we following through now?
    When thinking about type, I think I look at the pros and cons of each type and then decide 'I like the pros of that one, the cons could be ignorable. I should be like that.' (Fi?)

    FEELING
    Empathetic: What (does this one) like and dislike?
    Compassionate: What impact will this have on (these) people?
    Accommodating: How can we make (this) one happy?
    Accepting: What is beneficial in this?
    Tender: What about the people who will be hurt?
    I seem to be a more one-on-one feeler and need to get into a conversation with someone for it to work. I cannot stand large groups. This could be Fi?

    INTUITION
    Abstract: What else could this mean?
    Imaginative: What else can we come up with?
    Conceptual: What other interesting ideas are there?
    Theoretical: How is it all interconnected?
    Original: What is a new way to do this?
    Intuition might actually be the last trait I fall onto when the others dont work. Se finds it, Te and Fi puzzle over it and get nothing then pass it to Ni who translates it and gives it back to Te and Fi.

    This is from the PDF on the link.

    From what I can see in myself is that I use the Fi, Se, Te, and Ni functions in some order. In conversations I use Se to see what to talk about, Fi to try and identify with the person. I dont completely understand how I use Te and dont completely understand how Ni works.

    Also I think that I am mentally resisting typing myself while still studying MBTI (Just because its an interesting way to add vocabulary to a situation and studying myself is the way I think would be a great starting point. )

    Humm from all this ISFP (Fi < Se < Te < Ni ) seems the best fit, although I dunno how introverted perceiving functions work.

    That list was not addressing the cognitive functions.
    It was addressing the MBTT dichotomies.

    If it makes you feel any better,
    I thought ISFP was a good option for you, too.

    Do you try to be careful how you say things so you don't hurt people's feelings?
    More careful than other people you know?

    Ignore the sub-information then. I don't think I really used it.
