    don't expel me right away :D and I don't want to bother you with yet an other self centered tread :D


    When I typed myself INFJ I loved it very much but there was only one thing that bothered me and that is that I don't believe my intuition is very strong, not my strongest tread, I would say feeling is. I don't know, maybe I don't have a good impression on what intuition realy is. I can't say that I just know something, it is more that I feel something. I don't have ideas, I have feelings about ideas. I don't see the path, I see a world of possibilities and connections, I can see the connection between phylosophy and science, I can make my values work in a lot of different areas. I feel what is right or wrong. I analyse everything in my life on how it feels for me. Does it feel good or not? Does it feel like the good thing for me to do or not. I feel so much and so deep, I'm feeling all the time. I don't know, is that Ni or Fi?

    I have been reading this article about INFP (see link) and it fits me perfectly. I'm idealistic and perfectionistic, self critical and always try (tried) to please other people: my parents, my teachers, my coworkers, my friends.

    This is so true! from one moment to the other I can be very rigid, so rigid that people's head will spin! And because I have been in the impression a long time that the world always violates my ideals, I always am a little bit rigid. Maybe that is why I tested INFJ. But since I'm on this forum, I'm changing. I'm relaxing, are more easygoing, floating with the flow. And finely this block inside of me is melting. I can relax more, don't have to be alert for someone to step on my values. I'm feeling more at home with myself and my test results are pointing more at INFP.

    I also thought I was very stricked in appointments so that made me a judging type. But I'm not so sure about that any more. My house is a mess, I have a lot of to do lists but don't feel like doing them (unless I really really have to). I make schedules but never keep to it. But when someone is visiting me or at work, everything is very neat, perfectionsticly neat.
    But to other people I am rigid in appointments. Maybe that hase more to do with my values than with judging. When someone changes an appointment in the last minute, they step on my values and I become very rigid. Or when they asks me to do something in the last minute, I feel obligated to help them even if I don't want to and that gives me a big deal of stress.

    this is me :shocked: did this guy know me???

    I feel like the real me is more dreamy, accepting, with very strong values and feelings, going with the flow. And that I changed that to survive in this world


    http://www.murraystate.edu/secsv/fye/INFP.htm

    here are some quotes that definatly work for me:

    Or i could just leave it with that and say "I just feel that I'm INFP" :becky:

    some thoughts on that???

    I think I'm INFP, too.
    Because I keep scoring pretty evenly with J and P.
    But INFP just seems to fit better, even more so now that I've read this post.

    INFPs are more aloof, INFJs are more passionate.

    The two types have completely the opposite set of main 4 cognitive functions. (not the opposite order, only as set)

    That's what actually made me think I may be. When I first got the result of INFP, I didn't want to be because I scored INFJ first and it is so rare. Haha.

    Morgan you seem like an INFJ/INFP hybrid

    Reckless Dreamer, you've always struck me as INFP, from day 1, but i'm not sure why...

    Really? That's interesting. I can't type people well. :/
    Hm, I think I'm going to go change what it says for my MBTI.
    Yay for realization! LOL

    The only place that typed me as heavy INFP was at http://www.mypersonality.info. Everywhere else was usually predominately INFJ.

    I had a REALLY tough time when I was younger because I was completely overloaded with feelings and I supressed them for a LONG time. I almost joined the Air Force in 2004 because I knew I needed structure VERY badly. I had already been trying to add structure to my life since after I graduated. It is something that has become easier for me to do.

    Now as I have been writing poetry on this site I have started really tapping into that feeling/intuitive part of me again it seems like I have been becoming more truthful with myself about who I am. Yet I hold strongly to the structure that I have developed, because without it I would not be successful in this world.

    I was instantly comfortable on these forums, MUCH more comfortable than anywhere else, probably ever. I think that is why it was so easy for everyone to see my INFP'ish tendencies well before I had any clue.

    yes that is recognizable!

    I always thought that I'm great at structuring but now it seems more like I needed to learn that to survive. And now I think on that, organizing asks a really great effort of me. It is like I need to build walls around my flow of feelings to get a bit organized and get thinks done. And I'm living with these for so long that I didn't even notice them any more, apart from the strange knot in my chest (which has almost disappeared). I also felt that I need to "keep thinks together" otherwise something would happen to me. I think it also has something to do with this. Without the walls I'm barrely on this planet... :shocked:

    It's almost like a right of passage for an INFJ to think that they're an INFP for a while. Believe it or not, even I put this into serious question a while back, and look at how high my J score is, ha.

    From what you are describing about yourself (and refrencing test results), I would then say you are an INFP. In the end though, you are your own best judge. It will take some time to sort it out though. The differences between INFJ and INFP are very very subtle, despite how different the types are on the internal level. Both type are very stubborn, but do so in very different ways.

    Aw, I love hugs. :]
    This may sound really odd, but for some reason this whole thing is making me really excited. Like, you know- figuring out my type finally. I was confused, but now I feel like I really know. It's like I know myself better, or something.
    Ehh, is it weird that this makes me uber happy?
