So, I'm new here on this site. I don't know my MBTI type, I've tested for INFP a lot but it me also changed to INTP, I asked people on Reddit to typify me and it was either INFP or INFJ. 

I recently did the big five factor one:

Openness: 85%

Conscientiouness: 10% (I think I can thank ADHD for that)

Extraversion: 23%

Agreeableness: 58%

Neuroticism: 80% (I have social and generalized anxiety disorder)

I suffer from identity and memory issues so I don't know who I am and the me that was always changes, so any help to finding out my MBTI would be nice.

Hi Riukkuyo,

I'd advise taking a look at the cognitive functions and seeing which you think sounds most like you. The Myers-Briggs system is based on CG Jung's theory of cognition that deals with the way we think more than the behaviors that manifest as a result of those thought processes. The Myers-Briggs system takes those functions and puts them in a "stack." The stack is a list of the order, frequency, and proficiency with which you use each function.

The functional stack for each of the three types you listed are as follows:

INFP: Introverted Feeling (Fi), Extraverted Intuition (Ne), Introverted Sensing (Si), Extroverted Thinking (Fe)

INTP: Introverted Thinking (Ti), Extraverted Intuition (Ne), Introverted Sensing (Si), Extroverted Feeling (Fi)

INFJ: Introverted Intuition (Ni), Extraverted Feeling (Fe), Introverted Thinking (Ti), Extroverted Sensing (Se)

These articles have a helpful, concise breakdown of the functions: https://thoughtcatalog.com/heidi-priebe/2015/06/if-youre-confused-about-... and https://thoughtcatalog.com/heidi-priebe/2015/12/how-each-cognitive-funct....

If I had to take a very uneducated guess, I would lean toward INFP for you based on the very little information you gave, I have heard that Introverted Feeling users really struggle with finding a best-fit type because they see themselves in every description. If you strongly identify with Introverted Feeling, you may also look at ISFP.

Also, always remember that you are your type, your type does not define you. It's helpful to analyze how your mind works sometimes, but you do also have to try things to know how you feel about them sometimes! And ultimately, you are as God created you to be, and the label doesn't give you worth or a sure-fire path to growth. Only faith and trust in Jesus Christ can do that.

One more tip that's been helpful for me (INFJ) and my husband (INTP) is to think of the extroverted functions as objective/external/group and the introverted functions as subjective/internal/individualized.

Prayers that you find the peace you seek.

I suggest you take the TypeFinder personality test that Truity recently released, that is if you havent already.

 

Though it's based on the 16 personalitites of the Myers-Briggs test, it's a lot more versatile and personal: for instance, I'm mainly an Infp (89% match) however I heavily overlap with Isfp (73% match) and Intp (70% match). This test basically presents a percentage for how much each of the 16 personalities suit you (albeit to see this you'll have to pay $29 for the full report, but for free you can still see the 3 strongest matches and detailed insight upon your intro/extroversion).

 

So, especially as you feel your personailty sways and fluctuates, this'll will show just how much of an Infp or Infj or Intp etc you are. And after taking this test a couple of times during a year, for example, you'll be able to compare the change of percentage for your personality matches to previous results, and really see the change in your identity. 

 

Hope I somehow helped!
