Most tests just confuse you (even on this site) because it depends on
A. your mood when you do the test
B. how you understand the questions when you do the test
C. how much you know about the functions.
C2. if you know a lot about the functions, the tests **** even more since you start picking the ones that seem cool after a while.
D. they just generally ****
lol.my exact problem! i related more to the infp forum posts about knowing everything and such. i was really put off by stuff like "rescuing flies" though
I didn't think I was INFP until today because I'm not hysterical about anything, if anything I'm really passive all around.
I once almost made my INTP friend cry because I commented that starvation is good because it helps with the over-population.
While trying to type you, It is quite hard because many of the things i believe make you an INTP, could also make you an INFP lol .
"im really awkward haha. when im alone, i feel awesome. but when im around people physically, i feel disconnected and kind of lost. and i feel like im not good enough for them because i usually dont follow their chain of thought. i dont get their jokes and confidence either"
TO me at first it looks like INTP, disconnected when around others and lost, the not feeling good enough for people, i sometimes get.
But not following train of thought, althou not strictly meaning INFP, the chain of thought and jokes thing, INTP's usually have a very broad and wide sense of humour of many many things. Which doesn't tell me INFP, or not INTP, But maybe something that isn't atypical
"18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life?
feeding myself, showering during the holidays (when no one can see how disgusting my hair is), not walking into a pole while daydreaming. other things like that."
Hehe to me that sounds similar to me, I am too busy day dreaming to feed myself most of the time. and althou i dont have a total ignorance of my surroundings (im guessing from paranoid feelings) yes it is very similar to my GF who is INTP aswell.
But alot of the stuff here does suggest a bit of both really. the trouble is You cannot pin point things down to a certainty with these questions, All i can tell you is information thru my experience of being an INTP and from what i see in other INFP's ....the latter which i have little experience in, so it can not be trusted as much as say an actual INFP giving their opinion.
Perhaps start from the bottom-up. Hang out at the INFP and INTP forums and see where you feel more comfortable / which one annoys you less.
im more comfortable around infps. but sometimes they are too emotional. one of the posts was literally about saving flies from drowning in a pool. another was about not eating food because they felt sorry for it and someone ranted on about how lady gaga was soo amazing, unique and genuine in her songwriting. other infps said a song needed to have form to be regarded as music. i disagree with that.
intps and infps have different functions.
Fi Ne Si Te INFP
Ti Ne Si Fe INTP
<,.< huge difference....
