Well, let me get straight to the point instead of dancing around. I don't know my type. I haven't paid much attention to the rest of this forum, and I'm aware that this is only my first post. I probably wont ever post here again after I receive a response.
I'm confused about my type. I have been assured that I am INxx. However, there is a lot of confusion as to those last two letters and what they could be. I was once told that maybe I just haven't "decided yet" on T/F or P/J. I think this is utter crap, and that people have to have a preference. Most people online who I chat with claim I'm INTJ. I'd like some outside opinions on this. If any of you are familiar with written identification of types then please feel free to have a go at me.
So here's a bit about myself:
Normally, in casual chat I'm not interested in specifics. I like to have the freedom of being general and inexact without having to worry about having every word I say looked at and turned over or dissected. I usually am well aware that the things that come out of my mouth, and the things that I realise internally are two different worlds. Often times I know something isn't 'exactly' right, but I'll say it anyway, and I usually get a lot of crap from some people for this.
I'm not afraid of emotions, as much of the T descriptions might imply someone who scores as T would be, but I also don't prefer to indulge in hugging/intimate contact with anyone except for perhaps my girlfriend. I also have a young niece who is two that I hug. I made it a point to attempt to tell her that I love her, however that has not gone over well at all, and I find I just prefer to show those things by my decisions and judgement rather than say them. I am not very good at being understanding of the emotions of others. The only time I was was when I was in a highly emotionally manipulative relationship with an ENFP. That was hell... on ice.
I know for a fact that I'm Introverted. I've studied the ins and outs of the differences between INFP, INFJ, INTP, and INTJ. (Fi, Ne) (Ni, Fe) (Ti, Ne) and (Ni, Te). It's difficult for me to decide which I prefer, because I don't really extravert much at all to anyone. I'm extremely introverted, and I don't really know anyone other than my family (who claim that I obsess over MBTi results WAY too much) who would help me in determining my actual type. So it's obvious I've taken into account that my subjective biadness of my actions and reasoning may be taken into consideration when answering the questions of the MBTi.
Anyway, maybe some of you will be able to give me some insight. Maybe you can just suggest some ways that I might be able to find my type that I haven't covered already. I've tried books and a multitude of tests, short of paying $100+ for an official consultation over the phone of the MBTi. I don't plan on wasting that much money on finding my type out. I'm not rich. I've read nearly all the type descriptions.
I'll look forward to your responses & input.
