As established in many threads before this one, there's quite a 'diversity of personalities' amongst INFP's and other types. I can easily name a few reasons for that: age, maturity, experience, upbringing, personal values, mistyping...
But what about differences in strength of preferences? Yunno, some tests will tell you how much % you score for E/I, N/S, T/F, J/P. As to the accuracy of that, surely some doubt can be cast, but still, I wonder if it signifies anything meaningful, for example, in being able to relate to one INFP more than another.
A few years ago, I got typed INTP, last December INFP, and today... Miraculously... INFP. Assuming that these tests results are somewhat representative of my preferences, my scores indicate that I definitely prefer Extroverted iNtuitive perceiving and Introverted judging, and that judging is dominant over perceiving in my case. But my preference for a 'Feely' style of judging doesn't seem to be that strong.
Alas I do not have my INTP scores, but I have my December and today's scores available, taken at A) Humanmetrics.com and B) Mypersonality.info.
December: 78, 62, 12, 11
February: 44, 100, 25, 44
December: 84, 100, 58, 84
February: 95, 84, 63, 79
So... pretty speculative, but I guess I'm a Lo-Fi Hi-Ne type of INFP. Meaning, relatively low Fi scores, relatively high Ne scores. Well, actually, the speculation part is in the possible interpretations of this pattern in my scores.
For starters, the Lo-Fi part. Could it be that I sway in my style of evaluation (judging), preferring mostly F, sometimes T? That I make decisions mostly in a way that feels right, in sync with my personal values, and sometimes in a way that sounds right, in sync with what I think is the logical thing to do? And therefore have a difficult time relating to Hi-Fi INFP's (not that I'm sure I know any), because they might be more confident in their personal judging than I am? Does that make my style of evaluation seem... fickle?
And the Hi-Ne part. Perhaps I'm so fascinated with the big picture, that I have no 'patience' for details? Or perhaps I am blind to the concrete, the things immediately around me? Do I not appreciate hidden meanings and symbols? Is this why I don't understand art, why I don't feel much when looking at the INFP porn thread? Am I, so to speak, immaturely one-sided in perceiving the world?
Gah... I could go on, spouting more speculations, I've not even touched upon the Lo-Fi Hi-Ne relationship, but I want to post this topic and find out what you guys think. Which is Ne/Se-driven? lol, sigh.
So what do you guys think? I'll accept anything - including "You're looking for something that isn't there" type of responses. I'll also take "You're not an INFP!" (not gladly, but I will). But please elaborate :D
