    Pretty sure I'm an INF, but I have trouble deciding between infj, and infp.

    I've seen INFP/INTJ switches. I've seen an evident INTJ type as INFP ("do you even MBTI?") and he was convinced he was INFP. Likewise with INFJs and INTPs which are more frequent than INTJ/INFP but nonetheless as unusual since there's a big difference between both.

    I was convinced when I first heard of MBTI that I was an intuitive. I just couldn't grasp my head around it...

    So, I thought INTP. Then INFJ. Then I played around with ISTP, ENTP, INFP, INTJ, ISFP, ISFJ until I finally arrived at ISTJ.

    But my main mistype is the INTP. I think this is because we have multiple strong types, and INTP happens to be my second type.

    I've had people ask me if I am ESTP because I am athletic and outgoing. I think that's a pretty odd mistyping, although made less odd by the fact that I myself thought I was ENTP for awhile (and maybe still want to be).

    Oh, how could I forget about this? Weirdly enough, I see many ENTPs that identify strongly with their tertiary-Fe think they're INFPs but never the opposite.

    I thought this for a while until I learned more about MBTI.

    anything is possible, especially if someone was mistyped in the midst of an unhealthy period, under the influence of drugs, etc.

    Unhealthy feelers can look like nazi thinkers; likewise, unhealthy thinkers can look like overly negative feelers. Intuitives might suddenly engage in very risky, unhealthy activities to engage inferior Se/Si, and so on.

    Yeah, I figured that must be the case. It's more common in female ENTPs, too.
