    Came across this article (again) this morning and finally read it. Thought I'd share:


    https://culturaldisasters.wordpress.com/2015/07/02/the-elusive-infj/


    It included a link to a test to check whether you are INFJ or INFP:

    http://www.celebritytypes.com/test/infj-or-infp.php

    and that site has lots of other tests on type:

    My results are as follows. The description of INFJs in...interesting. Would like to see an INFP post their description.
    Interesting: The description doesn't seem to make INFPs/INFJs sound very different.
    Mehhh.

    I have taken that test multiple times, and I find it so difficult as with most questions I agree with both answers. Now my result is INFP.

    Your result is: INFP

    Idealistic, imaginative, and passionate, you have a strong sense of your personal values and ideals and you tend to feel ill at ease in situations where you have to compromise these ideals due to external demands. You are very sensitive to the dictates of your own imagination and conscience and by default, you dearly want to give others space to be who they are. Thoughtful and considerate, you most likely find it easy to accept society's eccentrics and misfits without rendering judgment. Open and tolerant, you dislike prejudice and stereotypes and you are sometimes liable to give people the benefit of the doubt in situations where others think that "you should know better." Because of your idealism, you may sometimes neglect to give yourself enough credit for the things you accomplish or to speak up for yourself in relationships and groups. Your challenge in life is to balance authenticity with practicality and find a way to be true to yourself and yet live in harmony with the world around you.

    I do still think I'm an INFJ though. Have read a few INFJ x INFP articles and the conclusion is that I'm an INFJ, although INFP is very similar to my character as well.

    To know whether you're INFP or INFJ, studying cognitive functions is strongly recommended:



    The easiest way to identify if you're INFP is if you use Fi/Ne/Si/Te ("fine site" as I like to joke) primarily.

    I <3 INFPs. Your description sounds way cooler to me.

    Milky, that is a really helpful one. (@Milktoast Bandit)

    @Horatio - Yes, I agree with you. And thanks for posting that video. It is a good one that breaks it down easily. But these little quizzes are so funnnnny.

    Your result is: INFJ

    Sensitive, empathic, and insightful, you care deeply about people, wanting to accommodate them on the one hand, and having strong visions that you desperately want to turn into reality on the other. Often preoccupied with mulling over your personal thoughts in your own head, others are likely to describe you as tolerant, courteous, and appreciative, but also a bit remote and dreamy. Thoughtful and caring, you have a well-developed facility for putting yourself in another person's place and an instinctive understanding of how people work. Though you tend to spend considerable time fantasizing about how society could be improved, you typically refrain from arguing passionately in favor of your solutions. Instead, you prefer to influence others by gently letting them know how their individual contributions would be invaluable in the greater scheme of things.

    Actual answer: almost no one, because the INFP forum is a lonely, outdated ghost town through which only the occasional wanderer strolls, while tumbleweeds listlessly shift at their feet as they make their way down dusty, forgotten paths.
