    Default Why am I testing as INFj/ENFp?

    I did rmcnew's test again:

    The test results

    The tool thingamajig

    So are there any possible reasons why it's telling me I'm delta? It's got the INFp/ENFj results in there as well but it is favouring INFj/ENFp all the same.

    (I know it's only a test but I still want a response)

    Perhaps because was your very strongest function?

    Well yes, but I was thinking more about the step before that one, i.e. why an INFp might be scoring high enough on the functions to get a result of her quasi-identical.

    A lot of Ni types score as high Ne on McNew's test... I was thinking that maybe some of the questions were overlapping.
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    I agree, Rocky: I don't think all of them quite differentiate clearly enough between the two, because according to socionics, all types with Ne as a dominant/secondary function should score VERY low on Ni; they're likely to see Ni questions as pertaining to Si, associating things like time management with "self-care/awareness." And visa-versa, of course.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I have long sense considered the possibility that some of the Ne/Ni questions on the test, but I am not totally sure if that is the problem.
    I can actually see arguments in both directions ...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Perhaps an argument against the fact that the questions are misbalanced would go like this ...

    For example, if you look at Sycophants test and Cone's test results, neither one of them had a problem scoring realitivelly high on ...
    So, if there really is enough inconsistency in the test so that it would effect the results in that matter, you think that they would have scored high on Ne than they did in actuality ...


    Sycophant
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...219680441.html

    Cone
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...197525520.html

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Another possibility that Ne and Ni questions are unbalanced comes from looking at Baby's results
    If you type it into the tool, not only did he score higher in Ne than Ni, it says he is ENFp also ...

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...649034361.html
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Another argument that the Ni and Ne functions are not unbalanced has to do with Taz.

    She has scored high on NF and close on SF on other type test, including mine and hugo's.

    For example, this link

    "I got INFP but it is really long and was hard to choose to me."

    oldforumlinkviewtopic.php?t=1545&start=0

    That seems to coorelate well with her type test results here.

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/old/resul...589948291.html

    However, if you type this result into the interpretation tool, she comes out
    INFp/ESFj with a mismatch ...

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/tool.cgih...&function=post

    However, the INFp influence was obviously due to a high , which would mean that her suggestive was function taking over and influencing her into choosing yes to questions.
    If you remove Ne from the results, they self-correct as an ISFp ...

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/tool.cgi?...4&FIW=1&simp=1

    It now says she is an ISFp ...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Another possibility that Ne, Ni and other questions are not unbalanced comes
    from the fact that there is a consistency towards certain member of the forum who
    have received pure results without any conflict to the type they have already
    decided, despite the fact that it may appear that the results are unbalanced
    in some instances. Those include the following results.

    Herzblut [ESTp]
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...489957549.html

    Cone [INTp]
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...197525520.html

    rocky [ISTp]
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...922445415.html

    Mysticsonic [INTj]
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/html/resu...410509359.html


    if you punch these into the interpretation tool, they come out like they should typewise.

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/tool.cgi

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I made a form with all of the current questions on there that anyone can
    leave input on in order to improve the questions, that form is found here.

    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/testqi.cgi

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So, I guess from these evidences we can guage the following possibilities.

    1. The function questions are unbalanced and some people are coming out as types they are not
    2. The function questions are not unbalanced, and some people believe they are certain types they are not
    3. There is some sort of bug in the program that I need to fix, though that seem unlikely
    4. Baby and Ishysquishy are really ENFps or INFjs ...
    5. Baby and Ishysquishy are really ISFps, and scoring high on Ne,Se,Si in result of that...
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/tool.cgi?...&FIW=11&simp=1
    6. Baby and Ishysquishy are really INFps, and for some unbeknownest reason they scored high on Se and Ne
    http://socion.info/cgi-bin/tool.cgi?...&FIW=11&simp=1

    Of course, I am throwing all of these out here with the possibility that any of these could be true, but what is the right answer? Well, I will let other people comment on this and we can come up with something more to consider.

    Looking at just these results:

    ENFP 82.77%
    INFP 70.41%
    ESTP 61.24%
    INTJ 56.63%
    ISFJ 56.63%
    ESFJ 56.63%
    ISFP 49.87%
    ISTP 47.53%

    ESFP 37.83%
    INFJ 35.36%

    ishy, you seem enfp, too. And that's a good thing!

    I seem like an ENFp? I like ENFps so I don't really mind if I come across that way but I don't relate to the ENFp descriptions except very superficially. Plus it looks (to me) like is one of my weaknesses. I use a lot more than I use anyway.

    Do you think perhaps the environment affects use of the functions?

    Baby's brother and my partner are both ESTp, maybe having such close relationships with dominants is strengthening our own ?

    As far as goes.....

    Ishy, you have inspired me to write a new option for the tool!
