Random thought #6

You know…. I think I just found out I’m probably an INFP. Instead of a T, I’m an F.

Typology is a hobby of mine, and let me tell you it’s odd feeling to suddenly be an INFP when I related to the INTP profiles so well. And I felt like one…. and related to other INTPs… but Jungian Theory, which is what the whole MBTI thing is based on, has me with INFP. 

I don’t really mind, but It IS odd feeling. It’s like thinking your name is Fred for a year and then finding out it’s really Eugene.

I’m not POSITIVE…. but I AM 90% sure. Boy, do things change when you’re paying attention. 😄

Now, I may decide I’m not an INFP either, who knows, I just felt like saying this pre-maturely.

    I’m in the same boat. I’ve thought I was an INTP for over a year and now I’m starting to think that I could be an intellectual-leaning INFP considering how much Te I actually use.

    I totally get how you are feeling. Because I get a different result every test I take, I get that feeling in a mini-way, quite a lot. Now that I have discovered INFP, and it is close enough, I am trying to get myself to say, “That’s good enough – stick with it”, so I don’t keep having this happen! And just wanted to say, I laughed so hard at this – I love the way you wrote it!

      I’ve recently learned that tests don’t mean anything at all, so that was kinda shocking too. I’m okay with the INFP as it is, but I hate telling people I’m an INFP. The type has connintations (sp?) of overly emotional, overly sensitive, overly controlling stereotypical girls.
      In reality I know there are probably very few INFPs actually like that, but it’s still a thought.
      On top of that I feel at home in the online forums for INTPs but the INFP forums- UGGH. Way too much illogical chatter and emotional fluff everywhere. It’s so out of my realm. I must have a low percent of F or something.
      I do know the feeling though, lol. I know what you mean, I want to say it’s good enough for who it’s for but I want to be CERTAIN of my type!
      I’m glad you enjoyed it as well! 🙂 Thank you lots for the follow!
