    ISTP but have considered INTJ, INTP, INFJ and ENTP as well. Settled on Ti/Fe and too good at physical activities (whenever I manage not to loop) and too bad of a memory. Also enneagrem type 5w6 sx/? but considered types 6, 9, 7 and 8.

    Don't particularlly like it but do understand it's necessity.

    d) Love/passion
    Too dangerous to partake into more than the minimum necessary.

    e) Conflict
    Perfectly avoidable (if only people would look for the midle ground instead of greedilly wanting it all) and never a good thing.

    7) What are some of the themes that have played a prominent role in your life (ie. A struggle you’ve been unable to conquer, ect)?
    Failure at being understood (it really feels like I am speaking giberish for I carefully choose my words so they are totally clear and still people distort and misunderstand what I say).

    Since I do not have friends I only go out with my ISFP mother usually to acompany her in familly parties (I much prefer small ones), walk on the beach, go for a icecream or shooping.

    14) What is more important, actions or words? Why?
    Actions cause one can easilly lie with words but with actions it is harder.

    It's just just I feel like an ISTP/INTP hybrid (I always thought I was crap at physical activities but after learning about the MBTI I started realizing I quite enjoy playing with my hands and when calm am quite talented at it but at the same time love theories and fiction even though I hate reading too long). So I don't really know if it is due to my type 5w6.

    My first impression was ISTP, and I think it is a good fit, however I have some more questions:
    • If you had some more friends, would you be more sociable? You obviously prefer solitary activites because you're forced to do so, and you considered extroverted types. Maybe think about a time when you had more friends than just dogs and cats.
    • You're definetely skilled at physical activites, which is expected from a SP type, however how comfortable are you with brainstorming, debates on theoretical stuff, philosophy and experimenting with various ideas about something that you can't sense imidiately? (checking for NP influence).


    I'm quite sure that you aren't INTJ or INFJ. INTP seems possible, given the extremely short, but precise answers and the subtile N influence, but I still think you're more S than N.

    Even if I had more friends I would have a hard time being outgoing cause I really fear being asked too much by them though now that I started working with meditation I am getting better at it.
    I am very comfortable with theoretical debates (like debates about characters and plot from movies and shows or even academic stuff) as long as I have enough knowledge to keep up with it. I even learned meditation and energy work through online research alone though I do get really bored at the deeply abstract stuff till I end giving up. And I couldn't think of 10 different ways to to something to save my life would get 5 at most and need a day or so of hard thinking to do so. But I do like philosophy when I had philosophy classes I liked the debates though I dindn't liked that we never reached any consensus cause I feel a really strong urge to find consensus, this is why I believe I am tritype 592.

    I really don't see any other option now. ISTP it is. You may be able to come across INTP-like at some times, but it's based on what you already know, and there no crazy-explorative attitude in you (which is typical for INTP, they can read wikipedia for days).

    IxTP is not really that uncommon at all, I do have gathering data and thats common, although their cognitive functions are different. By your text, is it correct to infer that your Se is reasonbly high (activities plus question 19) and Si is low (not much signs, if you have a feeling of not being normal then Si is unlikely to be high) on cognitive function tests? Thats one way of it. You seem to have low Ni as well (Ni correlates with pride by 0.6-0.8; Ni is more oriented through long-term, I dont see you with long term orientation at all; and one another thing I forgot).

    I do see you as Introverted anyway, but that I is on Myers. I in myers and I in Jung are mainly different, if you want more about that I could look for my own resume about the differences between (detecting I/E in Myers is easier than in Jung). You could be E on Jung, no way you are I on Myers except by one condition Ill say later.

    J/P and T/F comes quite complicated with this questionarie, it doesnt really induces you to choose any of these at all. I do get a hunch saying that you are T with some Fi. Your Fi must NOT be low but not high either, seems to be in the middle of the stack. J/P, you had some opportunities to answer with judgements but havent made so, so you are somewhat P to me (P is somehow easier to be understood as absent of J).

    I think you are IXTP but Im really unsure, and perhaps a better questionarie could hep if you have patience. Also, there is one thing about the shadow... If you are with deppression and some bad stuff there is a chance that you are on your "shadow you", which means that your preferences are different than they would be as if you were healthier. Although many will say that the "shadow you" flips all MBTI letters, I would do a good bet that it doesnt work that easy. For the few investigation I did on that matter, the shadow you can swith 2-4 letters depending on the person on complicated conditions, and I cant really securely access case-per-case on that matter.
