    Default Introverted intuitive, but which one?

    I've taken lots of MBTI tests and spent a lot of time studying the functions. The problem I now have is that I can't take a standard personality test without being biased. I see each question and almost always know what variable(s) is/are influenced by it, and I usually end up getting whatever result I want at the time. This makes things difficult. I am almost positive that I'm an introvert and intuitive, so that leaves me with two blanks to fill. INxx. If any of you are interested in helping me figure it out, I'd very much appreciate any questions, tests, or things to consider. Thank you

    There's a few threads dedicated to questionnaires and the like. Why not fill one of those out so we've got a starting point?

    Sorry. Internet was out.

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
    Well I show a lot of typical INTP traits (such as being analytical, being very socially awkward, and having a high IQ) but I also have strong opinions, think common courtesy is important, and place high value on efficiency. I see all of the judging functions in myself, and I'm not sure which one I use most often.
    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    Excitement. I've found that I'm almost attracted to semi-dangerous situations just because they might bring excitement.
    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    When I got my SAT scores. I didn't do much studying but I still did well. It made me feel like I had more worth than I originally thought.
    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    My appearance and how awkward I am compared to most people. It seems that most others, women especially, are naturally attuned to things like what to say in formal situations and how to do hair, makeup, etc. I can't figure any of it out and trying is almost painful.
    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    I weigh the pros and cons for most things, but when the decision is emotional (like deciding between two potential relationship partners) I am afraid of making the wrong decision so I end up just letting things work themselves out.
    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    I don't understand this question at all o.o
    7) Describe a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
    I was hanging out with my boyfriend, his cousin, and my friend. We were taking turns playing Rock Band and Left 4 Dead while whoever wasn't playing at the time watched and made sarcastic comments. After a while we all sat at a table and played blitz. My memory of it is sort of... selective, I guess. I remember what we did as well as vivid two-second moments, but I don't remember much of the conversation that was going on or anything like that.
    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you?
    "More natural"? Were there choices that were left out?
    9) How organized do you think of yourself as?
    Usually not at all. I procrastinate a lot and I hate cleaning. I do tend to like lists, though. I guess I'd say I'm organized about information, but not about material things or deadlines.
    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    Usually a pretty even mix of both. I try to understand the person's reasoning first, but if I'm interested enough, I'll look into it more. If it's worth anything, I usually can't take an idea seriously if it's only presented with "principals." I don't like feeling manipulated or guilted into supporting something when I don't have all the facts.
    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    I think it's more important to find compromises and avoid conflict, but I'm also not going to pretend to have values that are completely opposite of my actual values. I avoid situations like this rather than making it awkward or causing a confrontation. For example, I don't go to a lot of family events because my family is very religious and I have a lot of problems with religion. I'm not going to pretend to support something I strongly dislike, but I'm also not going to show up and start a debate. If someone states an opinion that I disagree with, though, I hold back, try to see their reasoning, and say something like "that makes sense" or "I see where you're coming from."
    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    I think before speaking, but I say something like "umm" to let the person know I heard them and am responding. Some people don't do this and it seems rather inconsiderate. I definitely prefer one-on-one conversations. I'm that person who gets interrupted or talked over in group conversations. Plus it's much easier to stay on topic when it's one-on-one.
    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    This one is sort of difficult to answer without an example. I probably do both about evenly. And yes, I think actions speak louder than words.
    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    It depends on which friend and what we'd be doing. There are too many factors to give a straight answer. I'd say that I'd probably stay in 8 times out of 10 though.
    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
    I... don't really know. You'd have to ask someone who has seen me under stress. I know that my mind often goes blank when I'm stressed, though.
    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    Many things. The biggest reason for me to dislike a person is that they are inconsiderate and tend to put their wants before others' needs. People who are loud while others are trying to sleep are the best example I can think of. It also bothers me when people are irrational, and when I can't reason with them. I hate when my well-thought-out points are dismissed without being considered.
    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    I really enjoy talking about personality and MBTI (lol). I also like talking about beliefs and philosophies.
    18) What kind of things do you pay the least attention to in your life?
    Current political events. I don't see the point of paying attention to that sort of thing. Most people are going to be biased in one way or another and, even if I do feel strongly about a certain issue, it's pointless to try to change someone else's opinion.
    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
    For some reason, my friends think that I'm confident and that I don't let insults bother me. This could have to do with the fact that I purposely choose friends who have less self-confidence than I do because everyone else intimidates me. The truth is that I almost constantly fear being confronted or insulted (usually on my appearance), especially by strangers. Another thing some people think is that I'm oversensitive and easily upset. I'm not, though. I just have crippling anxiety. They think that when I need time to myself or when I don't feel like talking, that I'm hurt or mad at them, when in reality I'm just stressed and exhausted.
    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    Go on a forum like this one for a few hours, then invite my significant other over to play some games and maybe go on a drive or to a place that's not crowded.

    Personal concepts
    1. What is beauty? What is love?
    Beauty is sensual (not to be confused with sexual) excitement. When you see, smell, hear, etc. something beautiful, your mind goes, "hey, I like this." I'm young; I don't know what love is. There are too many types and degrees of love to define it. The two types of love I've experienced are 1) the willingness to give everything for a person, not for any sort of gain but simply because I wanted to make them happy, and 2) the realization that my life is better with a certain person and the conscious decision to appreciate them for it.

    2. What are your most important values?
    My most important value is considerateness. Although I tend to keep to myself, I can become very outspoken when I see someone being inconsiderate toward another person and not realizing the effects that their actions could have. An example of this is when the choir director at my school decided to give a 15-year-old student's ticket for a field trip away without refunding the money because she was talking in class. This bothered me because she didn't realize that the students' family would be losing a large amount of money. Although I had kept quiet about many things she did before this that bothered me, I spoke up about this. It also bothers me when people don't practice common courtesy, and when they have the attitude that their needs outweigh the needs of others (like when people say "why should I have to ___ because this person ___?")

    3. Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
    I have some new age beliefs, but I'm mostly agnostic. I believe in some things like reiki (supposed to be a type of healing, but I think it's just sending warm energy). I believe in this particular thing because I have literally felt a long-distance treatment work on me when I was not expecting it. It still seems a bit ridiculous to me, but no amount of logic and reasoning can outweigh what I've experienced. I don't impose my opinion on anyone; it's just my personal belief.
    I was raised Christian, but now Christianity is one of my least favorite religions. The arrogance that goes along with it (ie. Christians are pure and everyone else is evil, or everyone else needs saving or has not made as much progress in life) is an issue for me. I've also noticed a lot of instances in the bible that were supposedly moral and good but were incredibly heinous by pretty much any standards, like God commanding entire families (children included) to be killed because of the actions of one person. I don't see how people can look past this so easily.

    4. Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
    War is a terrible way of settling disagreements, but will be necessary as long as aggressive people are in positions of power on a global scale (so probably forever). I don't have much else to say about this; it just seems like a fact of life. To me, power is the ability to influence (people, groups, laws, animals, objects, anything).

    Interests
    5. What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
    Most of my deep, long conversations are about psychology/sociology and how people function. I'm not sure why it interests me so much, but I find human nature, as well as the nature of other beings, fascinating. I think it could be because I find it satisfying to attribute reasons to problems or instances, and I love the idea that everything we say and do has a reason whether it's our experiences or the chemistry in our brains.

    6. Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
    I don't really see how medicine can be a conversational topic unless you're in a situation where someone needs medicine, or something like that. It would seem weird to just randomly bring it up. When topics like that do come up, though, I do enjoy talking about them to some extent. It's interesting to know how various meds and healthy/unhealthy behaviors affect the body. As far as my own body, I try to be focused on it, but I'm so prone so extreme procrastination and laziness that I'm in nowhere near perfect shape. My family got a gym membership and we have planned to start going tomorrow, though, so I'll see where that takes me.

    7. What do you think of daily chores?
    I think they're fair as long as they're split up about evenly or fairly (based on work/school hours among other things) and that everyone is doing chores that they are good at and/or enjoy; however, I don't think children should be obligated to do chores unless they are rewarded. Yes, parents/guardians provide and care for their children, but adults make the choice of living in a home with others (and sharing responsibilities) and children do not.

    Fe & Ti and 9? 2? This was interesting:

    This could have to do with the fact that I purposely choose friends who have less self-confidence than I do because everyone else intimidates me. The truth is that I almost constantly fear being confronted or insulted (usually on my appearance), especially by strangers.
    Socionics questionaire supports Fe. You basically took the question about Si and made it about Fe. Why are perceiving functions so hard to read out of these things?

    INFJ? That's cool; that's one of my favorite types. I don't understand why I'm so awkward for an INFJ though. The ones I know are pretty good with people

    Also if someone could give me a description of Ni that would be very helpful It's the only function that I don't understand at all

    Welcome to the club.

    Here's a description from another thread that helped explain Ni (and Ne) to me:

    Quote Originally Posted by Enthusiastic_Dreamer View Post
    "Ni realizes things as connected and interrelated, as Ne does, but keeps that system in place. Same inclination towards finding relationships, but maintaining the actual systems, or in other words, underlying structure in place. To my understanding, this is the fundamental difference between the two and how Ni is able to narrow things down to a point, whereas Ne tosses concepts around like a tossed salad. Ugh..ok, let's go with the "tossed salad" approach shall we? Ni sees the salad and all the pieces within the bowl, it's a salad with elements that come together to make that salad (cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce), sitting in the bowl. How are the elements related? Well it sees the underlying connections as making a whole, the concept or idea of what a salad is commonly known to be. Ne takes those salad elements, and throws out the bowl, so there is no longer anything restraining those elements to their original system of relationship. Think of the parts to a salad as all splayed out over a chopping board. Yes, they can all come together to make a salad, but the bowl, or unifying structure, is no longer relevant. They are now free flowing elements that have the opportunity to make new connections among one another since they are no longer bound to a system. Compared to other functions, Ni allows the person to step back, outside of the system that they are a part of, and sees it as an observer with everything all related. Ne allows the person to dissolve the system completely, and looks at the elements individually and tries to put them together in different ways. They both deal with finding underlying relationships, but through different modes.

    Is one better than the other? Absolutely not. To me, Ni is more "magical" since it seems to work more in the background collecting data and making more sense of the system it's analyzing as it's taking in new perspectives and ideas. Ne is fully in the light with me, and ya I make connections at a lightning pace, and in that sense, can seem "magical", but I know precisely how those connections are being formed as it's happening, and while it's happening, it is an experience that happens in front of me and something that seems tangible and real, like I'm physically playing with the pieces. There is no "magic" to the process, and I can usually control my Ne to a rather strong degree. But the two are very similar in that they are both analyzing and seeking out relationships between things, or concepts for that matter. One just sees it as part of a "system", and one that disregards the system entirely and creates new systems in which to place things.

    And as for predicting the future in way, like knowing how someone will react in a situation, that's totally Ni. Since they've collected all this information through experience and are able to see these individual lapses of time and moments as part of a larger whole. I really can't predict people's actions in the way an Ni dom user can, but the way I do it, which I can to a degree, is through my secondary Fi and my personal understanding of human nature and motives."
