INFJ - The Protectors
infj | isfj |intj?
What type do you believe I am? x:
I am fifteen and I believe that INFJ is the most fitting. I wanted to get the opinion of others.
a. I do think about the past, but for awhile I have been thinking much more of the future. Never the present.
b. I get many ideas which are original and creative , I'm drawn to less realistic things (such as surreal arts, ideas that have never been heard of, or any sort of oddity).
c. If I was SJ, I would keep my spaces neat rather than keep my internal thoughts in a certain manner.
d. While testing, I have never gotten 'S' but I get INFJ 9o% of the time. I got INFP once and INTJ a few times as well.
I usually get: I 8o-1oo% N: 7o-9o% F: 6o-8o% J 7o-9o%
e. I love to day dream of things such as:
acquainting with people I want to be closer with and being seen as a confidant to them
having a labyrinth-like house when I'm older, with secret rooms and baroque attributes
f. I'm extremely attracted to things having to do with the third eye, such as astral travel... but I don't know much about those things. I plan to learn more, I love learning about unknown phenomena so much.
g. I dislike and find it hard to express my emotions. I'm cautious about what I say to people.
h. People usually see me as innocent, shy, or friendly. Those that are less distant say I am creative, intelligent, irrational, or have a calming effect on them when they talk to me.
i. I'm highly sensitive and notice how people say or type something to me, rather than what they say.
j. I'm always online just in case someone would like to speak to me, I do not speak first though.
k. A lot of things I like or do have 'odd' meanings behind them, for example I have always talked quietly because I feel that my voice may be made fun of while speaking loudly, or I dislike music in general because of what I associate it with, or I like something because I feel that I do.
l. I'm not good at giving detailed descriptions whats-so-ever.
m. I really don't like being pointed out! I'm a perfectionist and believe that if I perfect in the things I want to that I won't bring attention.
n. I don't express myself freely. When I can, it's only if I feel that they have given me information as well and that it's safe to. When it is safe to I consider it bonding.
o. I'm interested in psych, nutrition, cosmetics, art, words | writing, past eras, cooking, and Europe.
p. My greatest knowledge is interpersonal and my enneagram is a mixture of 5, 4 and 9.
q. I've always had my own ways of doing things.

INTJ - The Scientists
This is a bit of an offensive stereotype.. While many SJs tend to keep their spaces neat, they do not always do so, especially when they are young. This is not a requirement to be an SJ. c. If I was SJ, I would keep my spaces neat rather than keep my internal thoughts in a certain manner.
Logic and being rational are traits often held in high esteem - they are also usually correlated to the T of MBTI. I believe this is false. There is nothing impairing Feelers from liking or even using rationale and logic in their everyday lives, and even being better at it than us Thinkers. The difference is their natural area of concern. q.
I sometimes question if I am 'T', since I also have a love for Science and see more logically than emotionally. (depending on the situation) but I think I'm more 'F' since I cannot be mean to people.
I would say you seem IxFJ - I have an ISFJ friend who is around your age who sounds very much like you. Beyond that, I would say some of your reasons for believing you are an intuitive are quite uninformed.
INTP - The Thinkers
I have to agree with Grey. You certainly don't sound like an INTJ and from what you've said it seem like your more of an S. I always test out as being an INTJ though I'm not. I'm also an SJ that doesn't keep things neat unless the area has to do with my working space. A lot of SJs seem to be like that.
I agree with Grey I think IxFJ too, how about taking a look at the N vs S differences.

INFJ - The Protectors
I remember events as snapshots of what actually happened.
I remember them as how I feel towards them and how I felt at the time.
I'm always also using my own words with ~ ___-esque or ___-like to describe things that relate to things (in my view).
I solve problems by working through facts until I understand the problem.
I usually understand the problem and then analyze.
I am pragmatic and look to the “bottom line.”
I start with facts and then form a big picture.
I see the larger picture first, then analyze from there.
I trust experience first and trust words and symbols less.
I trust symbols more and what I take in myself.
Sometimes I pay so much attention to facts, either present or past, that I miss new possibilities.
Sometimes, but not very much.
I remember events by what I read “between the lines” about their meaning.
I solve problems by leaping between different ideas and possibilities.
Example: a male liked me and I didn't want to be mean to reject him so I thought of many ideas to get him to leave me alone. It led asking my friend to make an account of a someone who I was ~*~*dating*~*~, so he would tell them rather than me.
I am interested in doing things that are new and different.
Example: I love the organic section, with unknown cereals that no one eats. With *~*~trendzz*~*~ or whatever, I like to make my own. I'm also much more interested in going to antique stores | organic stores | spiritual stores rather than a mall.
I like to see the big picture, then to find out the facts.
I trust impressions, symbols, and metaphors more than what I actually experienced
True, such as what I said with music. Or "I feel this towards this because it is like this"
Sometimes I think so much about new possibilities that I never look at how to make them a reality.
Very true. I dream about things and I never really know how it will be done and I procrastinate while doing so.

Well I personally do think you probably are INFJ :)
INFJ - The Protectors
I found a thread telling the differences between INFJ and ISFJ. I'll bold which ones apply to me and underline what does somewhat.
Attitudes about EDUCATION may come into coINFJlict between the INFJ and the ISFJ.
The ISFJ is quite practical when it comes to learning and training. The ISFJ seeks an education in order to work, to learn a skill, to master a field of knowledge so it may be applied.
The ISFJ studies mostly by memorization of facts, and this type is most comfortable in fields which minimize theory, extensive reading, and all but the most straight-forward kind of writing.
ISFJs work hard at school, finish, and apply what they've learned to earn a living.
The INFJ, of course, is just the opposite. The INFJ learns to learn, without much attention to whether the learning may ever be applied, whether it may ever earn an income. The INFJ does not enjoy learning by memorization, but excels at theorizing, reading and writing and the more creative the topic the better.
The INFJ is creative and spontaneous.
The ISFJ is traditional and organized. The INFJ is spiritual and mystical.
The ISFJ is practical and sensible. The INFJ isn't, period.
The INFJ thinks in terms of tomorrow and forever. The ISFJ thinks in terms of history and today.
To the sensing-judging type, life and duty are synonymous. Work plays an important part in the picture.
(Not at all)
To the intuitive-feeling type, life and relationships are synonymous. Work is certainly important, but the INFJ conceives of work differently: as a gift to humanity, service, communication, art, inspiration: an act of creation to bear witness to the fact that the INFJ once lived.
INFJs give it lavishly. INFJs need it desperately. And ISFJs just don't congratulate, appreciate, thank or otherwise acknowledge anything other than herculean accomplishment. In the INFJ/ISFJ relationship, the INFJ is likely to remain needy, hungering for approval and gratitude.
Idealists are enthusiastic, they trust their intuition, yearn for romance, seek their true self, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
Guardians pride themselves on being dependable, helpful, and hard-working.
Idealists pride themselves on being loving, kindhearted, and authentic.
Guardians make loyal mates, responsible parents, and stabilizing leaders. (Not at all)
Idealists tend to be giving, trusting, spiritual, and they are focused on personal journeys and human potentials.
Guardians tend to be dutiful, cautious, humble, and focused on credentials and traditions.
Idealists make intense mates (that is how I dream it to be), nurturing parents, and inspirational leaders.
Guardians are concerned citizens who trust authority, join groups, seek security, prize gratitude, and dream of meting out justice.
I think the most clear indicator that someone is an ISFJ is their need to help others and their keen empathic powers. (Nooo way.)
NFs are introspective, intuitive and highly idealistic. They are subjective, compassionate "feeler" people that desire to contribute goodness and meaning to the lives of others. They are effective at doing this through their nurturing, insightful and encouraging nature. NFs despise conflict. They will do everything they can to make sure their loved ones get along with each other and are happy. NFs are imaginitive, creatively inclined and passionate about their choice causes.
SJs are observant, stable and motivated by a need to maintain security. They are realistic, routinized administrators requiring tasks be completed correctly and that people behave appropriately. SJs make thorough examinations to ensure everything is done according to plan. They make sure no more and no less credit is given than due. When a need arises, they are quick to provide a solution, provided that the need is justified. SJs are not driven by impulse, but rather by concrete fact. By virtue of their reliable, diligent, industrious, persevering nature, they make excellent leaders.
ISFJ tendencies: helper, stickler for rules, stickler for getting places on time, organized, willing to sacrifice a great deal of myself in order to help someone else, etc. (I am like the opposite of that..)
Idealist introverts are abstract in thought and speech. They are aspirational, positive and oriented toward the future. They long to unite people in peace and love.
Artisan introverts are concrete and utilitarian in their approach to life. They love to work with their hands (Opposite of that too).
ISFJs are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their "need to be needed." (No.)
