    Default so what am I?

    Well, I'm just curious to see if anyone can guess my type with just a picture and a snippet of information. I am pretty sure of what my type is, and I've already posted it elsewhere on the board (the 2 - now 3 - times I've posted here - although I have been lurking for a while); but I'll let you have a crack at it anyways.

    here's a picture from a few years back, I don't have many pictures of me and this is as close to smiling as I usually get:



    info..
    I am interested in astrophysics, philosophy, and science fiction. I run cross country and am pretty competitive. I isolate myself from even my friends at times, and if something disturbs me I become overly cynical. Some people criticize me for never considering other's feelings, but I've never been good at putting myself in other's shoes. I am lost in my own thoughts to the point where I sometimes nearly get run over while crossing streets.

    I have a knack for finding flaws in other's logic. I have a problem with overly structured environments and neither like to take responsibility nor follow another's lead. I am heavily against stereotypes and dress a bit awkwardly with not much care about my appearance. I think that's enough info, this isn't a dating site and I am asexual anyways.

    So, what am I?

    Oh, come on, she HAS to be an INTp. She even looks like Bill Gates!

    You don't like to take responsibility? You should try it sometime; it's quite a thrill. Whenever I start to take responsibility, I start walking faster, stand more upright, and overall become more socially confident.

    Cone, I thought maybe INTp too .. But, I see some ST there ...

    I read both the merier-briggs and sociology description of ISTp, she seems to fit it more from what she has told us ...

    By the way, I am not typing by photographs totally anymore.

    And yes, I know that is MBTI ...

    Sounds like


    I isolate myself from even my friends at times, and if something disturbs me I become overly cynical.

    written all over this statement ...

    Some people criticize me for never considering other's feelings, but I've never been good at putting myself in other's shoes.

    and yet more


    I am lost in my own thoughts to the point where I sometimes nearly get run over while crossing streets.

    That could be intuitive, a sensible person would be more aware of their surroundings.

    I have a knack for finding flaws in other's logic.

    sounds ... ish

    I have a problem with overly structured environments and neither like to take responsibility nor follow another's lead.

    A big red flag for P here ...

    I am heavily against stereotypes and dress a bit awkwardly with not much care about my appearance.

    P,P,P, and more P ...

    So, what am I?
    introverted, some intuitive,some thinking, perceptive

    But the makes me also think ISTp still possibly ...

    I still think that fairgeek could been either an ISTp or an INTp, she has conflicting aspects of both from her description.

    Earth 2%
    Metal 17%
    I would have guessed INTp even if I hadn't seen that.

    On Keirsey I usually end up as ISTp, and I must admit that some of the ISTp descriptions sound a bit like me. On the socionics.com test I am an INTx. On most of the mbti tests I have taken I am an INTp. My parents are ESTP and ISFJ, so I have had strong influence from sensors. I do get hung up on details sometimes, ("can't see the forest for the trees"), but I prefer just the plain facts, details in textbooks can be overwhelming.

    I read an article a while back that said something about Einstein being ENTj rather than INTp.

    I've yet to meet an ISTP who isn't revolted by the very idea of psychological typing.

    I have to agree about the revolsion ISTPs have about typing. I think its they dont like being exposed. Underneath it all they really want someone to know them but they dont want it publisized.

    Ps Fairgeek is probably INTP. sigh*

    Just for curiosity's sake, what gave you the impression that I was an NF?

    she's fairly aware of her type, i think?

    her description of herself sounds textbook intp, but i think most intps would be able to recognize themselves as such readily.

    i figure she's somewhat aware of her type which can definitely sway psychometric test results.

    female infps i have met are... well... chameleons. at least in public and with those they don't know well. i think they can generally hide their emotional drive as much as they wish, thus giving them an intp appearance?

    When I first took an MBTI test in January, I was amazed at the accuracy of INTP descriptions to describe my personality. I was also amazed that I could indeed find aspects of the other types that fit as well. From reading the INFP type descriptions I was able to ascertain that I had been at least INxP when I was younger - although an ENFP friend of mine disagrees about that, she says I was always as rational as a stone (how is a stone rational anyways?). T is my highest scoring function now, though, so I hadn't really considered INFP.

    Yes, I am pretty certain of the INTP type, however, when I am in interaction with other INTPs in communities and forums, I sometimes doubt my type. Particularly when dealing with the ones more iffy on the F/T or P/J.

    If an INFP does not desire to have an emotional drive and represses it as much as possible, their preference for the F/T function would become T, and thus they would become INTP... or can preferences not change types?
