    Default INTJ and INTj??? (The j or p problem)

    Im sure this has probally come up before but I am having a problem with the j and p problems when comparring Socionics and MBTI. Because I test as INTJ and INTj every time. And every description I have read about both fit me. I know I am not an INTP and I fit the description of INTp in only one or two places. Is it possible to be both INTJ and INTj or am I just missing something?

    there are also a couple of us here who are INTJ and INTj. i think it's because of how the different functions are defined slightly differently between MBTI and socionics, so that it is possible to not have the J flip to a p.

    That throws so many people off. This theory is bullshit for the most part. I don't know who came up with it but he/she should be nailed to a cross. Because at least 80% of the time that is not the case. You are most likely INTj as you think. I for an example am INTp and INTP. Don't listen to me though, I have no idea what I speak of.

    (and I'd say by the way you have gone about resoning this thus far, you are a Ti dominant type in Socionics. :wink: )
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    I was actually thinking this after I posted this thread.


    And thanks Rocky for the link. It helped.

    a good link to figure out if you are more one than the other, INTj or INTp
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    I read that long ago but I was under the impression that if you are INTJ then you are INTp and vise versa. Now I see that the deffinitions are off center a bit when you compare them so it is possible to be the same type in both.
