    INFJ or ISFJ?!?!

    I thought for the longest time I was an INFJ but once I saw the ISFJ profile (from helping a friend find her type), they seem so similar!! I know that the difference is that ISFJ uses: Si and Ne while the INFJ uses: Ni and Se.
    I try reading all these websites and honestly I'm more confused than EVER! If anyone be so kind to give me the definitions of the cognitive functions, I would be so happy!

    ISFJ - The Nurturers

    INFJ: dark, depressive and idealistic. ISFJ: HERE and NOW!

    INFJ: I wish I could do XYZ. ISFJ: See ya later folks, I'm busy doing XYZ.

    INFJ: I want a soulmate. ISFJ: I want a teammate.

    INFJ: Fluffy unicorns shit skittles. ISFJ: Seriously?


    This is the major difference I've seen. I'm an INFJ convert (or I was ISFJ all along, who cares.) Psssh.

    I know you're asking about cognitive function definitions and the differences between INFJ and ISFJ, (and apologies if I'm confusing you even more) but have you considered the possibility of Fe dominance? I've seen it a bit in your posts around here. And it might also explain why you're having more trouble identifying your introverted perceiving function.

    Just think of the following:

    Ni - Big picture.

    Si - Living in the immediate present with very little thoughts on the future (in terms of changing the outside world in one way or another).

    I actually thought that! I thought maybe I was an ENFJ. But I have two ENFJ friend myself! I find the major difference with them and me at school is that I like to think things through before I speak ( which suggests my Ti) and my friends are more fluent and literal than I am. My introvertism is extremely noticeable at school!

    Yeah. I've had a couple of people on these forums type me as an ENFJ and I most certainly am not an Fe-dom, let alone an extrovert. I come off as more of a cold person to plenty of people until they get to know me and my silly nature. You might relate to this as well.

    @Ellis Bell brings up a good point -- not that I have ever read your posts or know anything about your type but just in general, my impression is Jung envisioned there to be 8 types with of course various subcategories possible, but the main thing is your dom-inf type (he mentioned auxiliaries because the dominant, while what seemingly determines type, often is augmented by other functions more than his original portraits may have suggested).

    8 types rather than 16 would mean that your perceiving preferences could be especially ambiguous as an Fe type. The clearest preference is your dom and your inf. E.g. an Fi-dom is probably unlikely to adopt anything close to Ti unless they're not a well-defined Fi type, and the conceptual introversion evident in them is likely Pi influence.
