    Default Am i Intj or intp?

    Well , i'm almost sure that i'm an intp i was confusing the concepts of Ni/Ti and Ne/Te . analyzing Se/Si and Fe/Fi is so contradictory.
    I'm open to Estp and Istp typing but i was such an awkward nerd and i never was in good term with kids of my age back then.

    Some clues:
    -I'm messy.
    -I don't care much for physical pleasures ( tho i enjoying the sensation after doing it ).
    -I have a strong Fi but i think my Fe is something natural .
    -Alot of project that i want to finish ( i have to fight versus my lazyness )

    I don't know if it is actually Ti or Ni that let me detect so many flaws to the funtions explications and personality theories that make it hard to be really sure.

    In my opinion INTPs can still have strong Fi, since dominant Ti and dominant Fi are both associated with the letters IP in combination. The idea of INTPs having the weakest Fi of all the functions was invented by someone named John Beebe, it isn't universally held to be true.

    Thank man . Btw what do you think about intp having high Ni , I don't trust test alot 'cause i know how to manipulate them now . Can we take control of other funtions using training?

    Sure! INTPs are introverted and intuitive after all. And in theory you can strengthen any function through practice.

    Aren't there limits to that though? I've always assumed that while inferior functions can be strengthened, at the end of the day they will always be inferior functions and there's only so much you can really do.
    Repeat after me: "Wocka, wocka, wocka". See? That wasn't so hard, now was it?

    Function theories aren't science and there are a lot of issues with them. But accounting preferences and base methods of how one interacts with their environment does allow for the understanding of some of the more baser instincts and behaviours you exhibit.

    Pretty typical of INTPs to poke holes into things btw. Keep it up.

    I thought I was an intp for a while. Do you like sports or anything fast paced?

    This is based on my own experience: INTPs come across as warmer and far less blunt than INTJs. They are better socially and can be talkative. They have a more live and let live attitude. INTJs are more likely to handle a structured work environment. The INTJ is more likely to be the shitty boss that the INTP challenges.
