Hi!

Made this Peronality Type test more times that I can remember.
Most hitting INTJ, about 99%.

But got also a tie between INTJ and INFJ. Some things acctually do fit into INFJ such as reading people's emotions and being complex.

(The Counselor has a unique ability to intuit others' emotions and will often know how someone else is feeling before that person knows it himself. They trust their insights about others and have strong faith in their ability to read people. Although they are sensitive, they are also reserved; the INFJ is a private sort, and is selective about sharing intimate thoughts and feelings)

But not so interested in other people in general...

Maybe there is another type outthere not stated...?

It is possible to get a mix type, when it comes to INTJ or INFJ, they are so drastically different that you are probably either one or the other.

INTJ's thinking is what we most highly prize. If you find it easier to express emotion and understand others emotion...than great! you're an INFJ. If you feel things strongly, but have a difficult time showing it verbally or physically, then chances are, you're an INTJ. Feelers trust their gut feeling when making a decision, thinkers trust logic. Try looking back at a big decision you've made, and remember whether you used logic or emotion to choose.

There are YouTube videos explaining the difference between INTJ and INFJ which I found to be very helpful when considering this very question myself.

I consider INTJ's to be very complex, and we try to analyze the emotion of those we care about. In fact, if there's someone we love, sometimes we might OVER analyze and be hypersensitive to any signs of rejection from that person.

On the other hand, I know several INFJ's who are extremely kind people, and seem to almost be able to read my mind sometimes. Just because someone is a feeler, doesn't mean that through education they cannot learn to think logically. In this way feelers actually have the advantage because they can learn to think, whereas we thinkers cannot go to a school to feel.

I hope this explains it some, but if not try doing a search on YouTube for a more in depth explanation.

I'm grateful for your comment as old as it is. I've learned to think logically but I'm definitely a "Feeler" as you called it. 

Smurf says...

Thank you for the feedback.
Seems that I was not the first getting confused about INTJ/INFJ results, according to the search results.

But, after reading a lot about these 2 types, INTJ fits the most (oeverwhelmingly). Even though I tend to be able to read people sometimes.

Did a test here: http://www.celebritytypes.com/test/infj-or-intj.php
24% INFJ - 76% INTJ

http://www.mypersonality.info/personality-types/thinking-feeling/ - I definitely have Thinking traits.
When it comes to Feeling I have;
Easily hurt
Empathetic

But my decisions are objective and logic and not made by heart. No doubt.

You are born with one combination of letters. This does not alter or change at any given point during your life. The description of your type is the base of it, there are little things about you that can stem away from the description from your type. For example, as an INTJ I am a very logical person and I rarely show my feelings to people. INTJ's are often viewed as heartless. However, there are a few people I pour my heart out to, and when I do, it can be very emotional for me. As well, if I get VERY mad, I start crying... even around people I don't know well. And I hate it. It makes me look weak, which upsets me even more.
But anyways, there will be some exceptions to your type, it doesn't exactly mean you have mistyped yourself. If you are getting an INTJ result most of the time, chances are your type is INTJ.

dantelidium says...

You are probably an INTJ. I've read and experienced that INTJs are not emotionless. In fact we are very sensitive and have raging emotions at times, but what makes us INTJ is that our logic will take over and either hide or calm those emotions, so that they are not easily recognized by outsiders. An analogy that I really identified with said that our Logic with take care of or Feelings like a baby brother who is weaker and cannot defend himself. They said often we don't have a lot of natural control over our emotions because we are so emotionally stupid because we are used to just avoiding the problem of emotions. A lot of INTJ feel very emotional, but they will rarely show it outwardly.

I had the same question but got 41% INFJ / 59% INTJ. I'm definitely not surprised that it was fairly close though.

Guest (not verified) says...

Hello, I think I'm a mixed type because I got either 10% T or 10% F or smack dab in the middle. So it's really tied any ways. Can you find a description of such a borderline T/F personality?

Thanks.

aveenash (not verified) says...

hi, sometimes i get an intj and sometime a infj...am i a combination of both?

Marsha (not verified) says...

In my experience, I would say Yes you are probably a combination. In fact, I think everyone is a combination of 2 types with one type being the foundation of your personality and the other type is the alter ego so to speak. Before going to college and working for a global cooperation in the oil industry, I always scored as an INFJ but now I score as an INTJ. I have a deep compassion for humanity and can become overwhelmed with deep emotions when I see or hear of the suffering of others or animals. But on the other hand, my title and the work I did after college was "Continuous Improvement Coordinator". I worked on improving systems and processes for efficiency. I have an eye for spotting inefficiencies and areas for improvement both in business and in everyday things such faster way to pick up what I need at the mall and do it in the shortest time possible. I can read people's emotions, body language, and quite often thoughts. I can often predict future actions or events based on current ones because my brain will play out all possible outcomes with regards to events, even for something as simple as someone saying "I am going on vacation in Hawaii," my brain will play out different paths of events and experiences that person might have while in Hawaii. Both all positive and fun experiences and even dangerous situations that should be avoided. Of course, I don't tell people this when having conversations because it would freak them out but I am rarely surprised when things happen or by what people tell me because, days, weeks or months prior to being told I have already played it out in my head. I am a combination of INTJ and INFJ no doubt about it. I started out from Birth as a Feeler and developed my Thinking function through education and life experience. I live in my head and when playing out scenarios I feel them as if they are really happening.

Guest (not verified) says...

what you said really made sense and i can relate with it

Jenny Tressler (not verified) says...

Marsha, I relate to what you are saying. I, too, believe that both descriptors fit me well, even if they can be contradictory. I have strong emotions, but tend to use logic when making a decision. I believe, however, I was born with a more thinking orientation and developed a feeling orientation later in life, but both are so close. I now test as an INFJ, but used to test as an INTJ. I relate more to the counselor description than the mastermind, but can be too detached and logical to appeal to some feelers.

Miles Campbell (not verified) says...

Wow. I would describe myself almost the exact same way. Its very comforting from both a personal and empirical stand point that someone else is a blend. Many personality tests and (MMORPGs) allow for you to have a personality and a sub-personality that creates a unique blend.

So, yes, I do believe that a person can be two different types, because they are parts of a whole. In every personality type I've taken Enneagram, Color Test, DISC test etc. I ALWAYS score high in two areas. So, no matter what, my personality and traits ARE a combination of two distinct types.
 

Right on.

I've had the same dilemma, as my result was also split. I relate to both the INTJ and the INFJ, but have no idea how to figure out which is my foundation, my core so to speak and which is as someone put it the alter ego. I don't quite trust the test either, so that's probably has something to do with it. Does anyone else experience intense feelings of not belonging whilst simultaneously wishing to help the world and gain personal power through doing so? Forgive me, this might be an obvious question, but like Jack Kerouac said, you gotta "find the others".

CS (not verified) says...

I think that I am both a T and an F and I am able to use one or the other when it is needed. I test pretty equally between the two depending on the day, the test and my mind set. Sure MBTI is a nice base for describing a certain way one may navigate through life, but it doesn't describe the entirety of a person. It would be silly to think that all humans fit within these neat little boxes all of the time if ever. The truth is probably something along the lines of personality not being something that must remain constant. One thing I've noticed from my F side is that MBTI doesn't take into account spiritual maturity. Sure INFJ's are considered more spiritually advanced in some ways but the level at which someone is truly spiritually mature would naturally go along with their level of intelligence. I know INFJs that believe in the "spiritual" idea of the Power of Attraction. If one researches this ideology and listens to it's gurus, it is quickly apparent that it is based in ego and is intellectually stunted. So in essence, if one is considered more advanced spiritually as the INFJ's are told they are (if you believe in this type of thing) then they better have some pretty strong logic to back up their ideas. If spirituality doesn't make sense in this world then the idea of spirituality in general is bogus. Ive met INFJs who are very logical and would never believe that crap and I've met those who do. There is a range of intelligence in any type. To be truly spiritually advanced, one must be highly intelligent as well (have a strong and clear T capability). 

F is useless and simpering without logic. To separate the two is ridiculous. It is entirely possible to have clear logic with strong and deep emotions. If you have common sense and logic, your emotions will be more valid because they actually make real sense! If emotions don’t make sense, then the person having them might want to dig a little deeper....  When T and F are balanced, humans make the best decisions. This makes sense that is common and is proven in studies where people loose emotional ability due to biological mental issues. To make the best decisions we need both. 

What about thinking of MBTI typing this way; the closer you are to being in the middle, being able to access at will E/I N/S T/F P/J this means that you are closer to becoming more balanced and more evolved as a person rather than a personality. The balancing of preferences or the ability to access what ones needs to engage in any situation with mental prowess and a lion heart is what I believe to be an integrated human. If you're not going towards this life long goal, than what’s the point of your life? If you have a point past this, fill me in. I’d like to hear your perspective. 

The less ones personality or ego is involved the more adept someone is at using all personalty skills and temperaments available to humans to attain their goals. Don't accept a one sided black or white, right or left definition of ourselves. The MBTI is interesting but I think it still misunderstands personalities in the context of using them for growth and the evolution to a new kind of human. We don’t want to stay within types. Why would we want this for ourselves?

If we get to this balanced place the world would change. The personal power we hold would naturally not be used for evil as the ego is under control along with all other aspects of personality. The ideal human would be able to use any aspect of any type at the appropriate time.

The INF is seen as an extrovert. This is because they have balance. The INT does have access to strong emotions internally but these may not be seen by all, (this doesn't mean they are less and in many cases may be much stronger and true than a blathering out of control F).  Can the INTJ be an extrovert when needed or express emotion if they so choose? Absolutely. Any type is able to create balance in their lives and access all personality if they work at it and choose it. But when it comes down to it who are those that choose to become balanced? What types want this for themselves? This I would say would be the most intellectually and emotionally intelligent of our species. What types are these?  I would say they can be of any type that is on the cusp of being the opposite. The ENFJ may be very close to an ISTP if they are balanced. And I’m not just stating that the opposite is necessary for each of the four spots. To be on the cusp of each means you are all types at any moment. 

So in essence, it is good practice to notice your preferences and work on developing the opposite preference rather than just defaulting into who MBTI sheep tell you that you are. We can all go deeper than that. 

(I understand that there is a neuroscientist out there saying our brains are in fact these black and white types. Just remember that intellectuals who do research need something to publish that makes them different. They need to come up with something "new" that hasn't been looked at or said before to make a name for themselves. This MBTI way to describe the human brain is limited. We are just now realzing that the left and the right hemispheres of the brain aren't as singular as we once thought.) No wonder we all have so many questions about it. 

Pasquale Charles Rollo (not verified) says...

I couldn't agree with you more and think you've said it best. It is truly frustrating to find out that in a number of scenarios you can test one way and then find yourself almost as a complete opposite in other scenarios. The truth of the matter is that if you are going to decide to be a boring un-changed person who never learns or grows (or to put it lightly, content with whom you are), then and only then will you test the same each and every time. I have taken the test a million times, mostly score as an INFJ, but have also scored as INTJ, ISTJ, & ISFJ. Does this mean that I have no idea who I am or does it depend on my mood and where my mind goes to when I'm prompted to answer these questions?

I think in the end we all must find suitable basis for the MBTI that we identify most with and then decide for ourselves, if we wamt to stay within that realm or develope other characteristics. Me personally, I am very comfortable as an INFJ and strive to develope it but every now and again, I need my "T" trait to come out. But then again I think that's the struggle of an INFJ, we fight with ourselves over our thinking / feeling trait because we are always "Judging" as opposed to "Perceiving". It puts us at odds with ourselves and eventually go with our gut.

I have a personal theory that there are INTJs with an incorporated HSP diagnosis, in their nervous system. That could, however, be what makes an INFJ.
