    Am I an INFJ?

    I took a test and got INFJ..I took another and got INFP...

    However, I've been told I talk alot..I daydream a lot, I feel drained after social events, and I rarely go out..etc and I'm very solitary.However, I talk alot to people I'm comfortable with..I'm never the center of attention,although I'll alternate between long periods of modesty and then a bit of attention seeking.

    I'm very empathic, and I'll cry for people.My mind isn't always on other people, but I feel bad for others and I can never find a way to show people how appreciative I am.

    I value equality and honesty very much, and I can't understand why people lie at all..
    I dislike narcissists,braggers and liars.

    Anyway, what are the differences between INFJ and INFP?
    Not so sure I'm that 1-3%

    It's hard to tell. It just looks like you're a really sweet person. Maybe this quiz will help. It judges your functions. INFP and INFJs have totally different cognitive functions.

    INFP - The Idealists

    I got :
    Most Likely: ESFJ
    or Second Possibility: INFP
    or Third Possibility: ISFJ

    I'm almost positive I'm not Extroverted..I like talking to share news and inform people, but other than that, I don't like to socialize.

    The following is not true for me (about ISFJ) :
    "
    ISFJs learn best by doing..."
    " ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings..."
    "
    ISFJs need positive feedback from others."

    I don't really have a big goal in life,
    I find it hard to express myself in writing,

    I think I'll just say INFJ..You can't really define somebody's personality in 4 letters, and I feel like I'm 60-70% INFJ

    Being an extrovert or introvert doesn't necessarily mean you like to be around people all the time. It means you get your energy from outside sources. I'd personally look up how the individual cognitive functions work instead of stereotypes of how the personalities are. At the end of the day it's up to you though. You can take it again or find other cognitive functions quizzes to see how it goes.

    Actually, you can.
    ISFJ - Si Fe Ti Ne
    INFJ - Ni Fe Ti Se

    There's actually 8 different functions, but you use 4.

    How will it help you to say that you are an INFJ? It won't change who you are and won't help your self-development if you are wrong.

    And the statistics is bullshit, so you can't even go that route of wanting to be "special".

    Here's a large part of our type: Recognizing the Inferior Function in INFJ

    Here is more:

    INFJ
    Introverted Intuition with Feeling


    People with INFJ preferences are great innovators in the field of ideas. They trust their intuitive insights into the true relationships and meanings of things, regardless of established authority or popularly accepted beliefs. Problems only stimulate them—the impossible takes a little longer, but not much.


    They are independent and individualistic, being governed by inspirations that come through intuition. These inspirations seem so valid and important that they sometimes have trouble understanding why everyone does not accept them.Their inner independence is often not conspicuous because INFJs value harmony and fellowship; they work to persuade others to approve of and cooperate with their purposes.They can be great leaders when they devote themselves to carrying out a sound inspiration, attracting followers by their enthusiasm and faith.


    They lead by winning (rather than demanding) acceptance of their ideas.
    They are most content in work that satisfies both their intuition and their feeling. The possibilities that interest them most concern people. Teaching particularly appeals to them, whether in higher education, or through the arts or ministry. Their intuition provides insight into the deeper meanings of the subject and they take great satisfaction in aiding the development of individual students.


    When their interests lie in technical fields, INFJs may be outstanding in science, or research and development. Intuition suggests new approaches to problems and feeling generates enthusiasm that sparks their energies. Intuition powered by feeling may be of immense value in any field if not smothered in a routine job.


    Some problems may result from the INFJ’s single-minded devotion to inspirations. They may see the goal so clearly that they fail to look for other things that might conflict with the goal. It is also important that their feeling is developed, since this will supply necessary judgment. If their judgment is undeveloped, they will be unable to evaluate their own inner vision and will not listen to feedback from others. Instead of shaping their inspirations into effective action, they may merely try to regulate everything (small matters as well as great ones) according to their own ideas, so that little is accomplished.


    Inferior function (Se):
    Triggers for the Inferior Function
    • Dealing with details
    • Unexpected events
    • Excessive extraverting


    Forms of the Grip Experience
    • Obsessive focus on external data
    • Overindulgence in sensual pleasure
    • Adversarial attitude toward the outer world


    Ways of Returning to Equilibrium
    • Time alone to recharge
    • Lightening of usual schedule
    • Avoidance by others of giving advice or suggestions


    New Knowledge
    • Adaptability to outer details
    • Pleasure in temperate sensuality
    • More realistic goals

    Here's some for ISFJs: Recognizing the Inferior Function in ISFJ

    ISFJ
    Introverted Sensing with Feeling


    People with ISFJ preferences are extremely dependable and devotedly accept responsibilities beyond the call of duty.They have a complete, realistic, and practical respect for the facts.When they see from the facts that something needs to be done, they pause to think about it. If they decide that action will be helpful, they accept the responsibility.They can remember and use any number of facts, but want them all accurate.


    They like everything clearly stated. Their private reactions are often vivid and intense, and sometimes quite unpredictable to others.These private reactions seldom show in their faces, and even when dealing with a crisis, they can look calm and composed. Not until you know them very well do you discover that behind their outer calm they are looking at things from an intensely individual angle, often a delightfully humorous one. When ISFJs are “on duty” and dealing with the world, however, their behavior is sound and sensible. ISFJs are thorough, painstaking, hard-working, and patient with particulars and procedures. They can and will do the “little” things that need to be done to carry a project to completion.Their perseverance tends to stabilize everything with which they are connected.They do not enter into things impulsively, but once in, they are very hard to distract or discourage.They do not quit unless experience convinces them they are wrong.


    ISFJs often choose careers where they can combine their careful observation and their caring for people, as in the health professions. Other fields attractive to ISFJs are teaching, office work, and occupations that provide services or personal care. ISFJs show their feeling preference in their contacts with the world.They are kind, sympathetic, tactful, and genuinely concerned; traits that make them very supportive to persons in need.


    Because of their concern for accuracy and organization, ISTJs often move into supervisory roles. If they are in charge of something, their practical judgment and appreciation of what works make them conservative and consistent.They take care to collect the facts necessary to support their evaluations and decisions.As they gain experience, they compare the present problem to past situations.


    For an ISFJ, problems may arise if their judgment is not developed. If their feeling preference remains undeveloped, they will not be effective in dealing with the world. They may instead retreat, becoming silently absorbed in their inner reactions to sense-impressions. Then nothing of value is likely to come out.Another potential problem is that they tend to be somewhat suspicious of imagination and intuition and not take it seriously enough.


    Inferior function (Ne)
    Triggers for the Inferior Function
    • Issues of reality
    • Anything unknown
    • Overdoing their own type


    Forms of the Grip Experience
    • Loss of control over facts and details
    • Impulsiveness
    • Catastrophizing


    Ways of Returning to Equilibrium
    • Need to hit bottom
    • Being taken seriously by others
    • Being helped with overwhelming details


    New Knowledge
    • Broadened perspective
    • Clarified values
    • Flexibility in relationships

    INFP - The Idealists

    Sorry I haven't really responded to this thread..I ended up discovering through cognitive functions that I'm an INFP and am 100% comfortable with it.

    Nah, I doubt it..
    But either way, I just took a cognitive function test to see..I got, in order of preference ;
    Fi Ne Ni Se Ti Si Te
    Then again, some questions I was unsure of..
    Anyway, I don't feel like complicating things..It's been like 6 months since I last posted this post and I figured out my type (INFP) 5 months or so ago. I'm comfortable enough to say I'm an INFP.
