    Talking New here, trying to gain perspective

    Hi everyone, my name is Elizabeth. After taking a silly Jung test my results came back with my personality being categorized as INFJ. After spending the day with a cup of coffee in front of my computer, trying to gain as much knowledge as possible I found out jung tests are usually inaccurate and rather silly so I figured I'd dive even deeper into the subject. I guess I'm just looking for insight about my personality from all of you.

    I'm very shy usually (unless I have a drink in my hand, which is pretty sad). I've always struggled with being more outgoing but only because of the peer pressure to so, not exactly because of some kind of personal desire. I mean, I love people but I don't necessarily open up very quickly nor do I enjoy large parties or social situations where I usually end up feeling like I need to impress others. Too much pressure.

    Anyway, I'm always reading. I never make a decision or take on challenge without finding out every single fact or detail I possibly can. For instance, I love tattoos and piercings but before actually getting any I spend months reading about the procedure and I only want the best of the best in terms of the artist I choose.

    It's hard for me to give constructive criticism unless I really care for the person. I worry about hurting other people's feelings. I think too much about my actions and am very self aware and self conscious. Just writing this little essay I feel kind of silly. I feel like no one really "gets" me and sort of like an outcast. I've only really opened up to a handful of people and after being deceived, I let them go after a very nasty fight which was initiated on my part. I miss them but I feel very disrespected considering I hold my relationships at a very high esteem, this even includes simple friendships. If it takes me a considerable amount of time to open up to someone and it actually does happen, I feel like I've wasted my time and energy and trust on the person after being hurt. After blowing up and getting over it, I end up missing them dearly and actually only then do I realize how silly I was for fighting with them.

    I'm indecisive in terms of love and relationships. They usually consist of quick feelings of infatuation which quickly subside within a few weeks after I really get to know the person. When I do love it lasts a long while and it's hard for me to get over a relationship.

    I'm a bit critical, very sassy and I love art, cooking, reading, creating things within any medium imaginable, traveling, sociology and anthropology as well as psychology and being lazy. Astrology, numerology and things of the sort interest and give me some kind of hope for understanding myself regardless of how trivial they are. My room is a bit messy but not gross with dirty, moldy dishing lying around. Nope.

    So what do you think?

    EDIT: Oh yes, and I read we should post a few pictures.

    Hi Elizabeth, welcome

    when reading what you have to say about yourself, i am picking up on some Fe in your ego, which is mostly about not wanting to hurt others feelings, etc.....

    but i also hear irrational introvert. so, my guess for you is IXFp.

    you sound a lot like me when i was younger too. before my self confidence went up and i could let go of what others thought of me. well, maybe, every time i post, i wonder what others are going to think of what i have to say. lol

    the more i think about it, i'm gonna say ISFp. do you have any pictures to share with us?

    Oh, Oh, Oh! I just posted a few and also thought of a few things to add. I'm cocky when it comes to my knowledge of things and the work/art that I do. I'm not scared of a debate or to hurt someone's feelings when it comes to something like that, as shallow as it may sound. I don't like conflict unless it's within a debate and I won't enter a debate unless I know enough facts to back up my idea.

    I love listening to problems and I've been told that I stay very calm and comforting during stressful situations regarding other people. But when I'm stressed out I get very quiet and worry too much. I love the idea of stability within the home but I hardly even feel content with my current situation.

    It's weird, my extreme self consciousness started when I was about 17, I'm now 21. When I was younger I was always shy but I would usually shrug off insults. I day dreamed a lot and grew up as an only child so I liked to play by myself a lot too. I mostly hung out with people if they were outcasts because I felt bad for them.

    IEE is also probably worth a look.

    I think Ne/Si quadra, and of those, IEE seems likely.

    I was going to make a case for EII after reading it, even if that choice was rather boring since she said she already tested out as that haha. I guess the case has already been made though since Mimosa saw pretty much the same things as me. IEE definitely makes sense too, as I was only assuming IJ from the being shy bit pretty much, which isn't very definitive. There are certainly clues pointing the other way, too, like being slightly messy.

    Anyway, welcome to the site Elizabeth. Hopefully you find what you're looking for here.

    Definitely sounds Delta (Fi/Te values especially), but I'd think Delta ST > Delta NF. If you feel silly talking about relationships and things like that, but aren't afraid to hurt people's feelings in debates and such, it probably points to weak Fi and strong logic.

    I agree with SEI & IEE being the mot likely types, based on your introduction.
