    I was thinkign about this. You seem to be an INFJ to me. Like my sister, who's an ENFJ, you have developed your reasoning T very well though. You just more reflective than she is and hence I call I.

    Developed & intelligent INFJ.

    Possibly you struggle with the F/T because to an F reasoning looks like logic? (That's not supposed to be a beat down on anyone, I'm just thinking out loud here.)
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    It's possible. I have a hard time seeing myself as J anymore. INFP kinda-sorta fits, especially the functions (I do FiNe in a big way, I think). But I don't think I am as fragile as the other INFPs I've met. Except, I guess I am in some ways.

    This is harder when you don't really know yourself that well, OR when you're kind of "eh" at everything and not great at anything.

    CTG, I'm up for the impromptu essay, sounds like fun -- though not right this moment. (I will let you know when I'm freed up.)

    1. Not a long essay.
    2. No research required, as far as topic goes. Want it to be "off the top of the head."
    3. Anyone can play.

    That's my guess as well.

    Actually, Ivy reminds me a lot of another woman in real life (about the same age too!) who is a social worker. You both have a real pragmatic side (which is almost "S" like), but you both interact just on the deep level of perception that S's never usually go -- like you are seeing far more than what is apparent. I would also class her as INFJ because she's far too abstraction-capable than an ISFJ.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    of course!

    wouldn't have it any other way.

    But the fact that you mentioned about "knowing yourself and what you're good/not good at" suggests a need of internal consistency... which is closer along the lines of INFJ than INFP.

    How do you get multiple people writing one essay? Do we just write on the same topic? It takes too long to write essays... I think I'll just watch.

    Heh, It's taken me 9 weeks to write my (1000 of) 2000 word essay

    Which is rather sad, since I should be able to do that in about 40 minutes. But I'd have to care about the subject matter to do that...

    How does anyone write essay after essay on topics that don't interest them!?

    (Nothing says INTP like putting off an essay for months after building multiple databases and spreadsheets... just to leave the course hanging.)

    Lucky.

    I usually need five-seven days to analyze the ideas throughly...writing it is quick, though.
