When I'm alone or with close family I'm INFJ when working my personality/behavior shifts to INTJ. When out in public or tired ,I tend to shift to INTP in behavior. My spectrum of my personality is INFJ,INTJ,INTP. what is your MBTI triad.

Is this actually possible?
Or is personality type ingrained and more fixed than this - but we pretend or force ourselves to temporarily adopt different behaviours for work etc.?

Yep, I do. I already said it in my other comment, but I saw yours after I posted mine. Anyways, I don't think it's a really bad thing. We're just doing what we need to in order to be properly understood and communicate well right? It's not like our core values change just because we force ourselves to be a little more outgoing than usual right? It is pretty hard for people to get to know us though...

I don't know what my personality triad is...but I definitely switch personality types away from a few, select people. I am actually an INFJ, but many people at work would probably peg me as an extrovert. It's because I work with the public, and when dealing with strangers I put on my 'public' face. It's not that it's a fake personality, exactly, but more like a different side to me that requires a lot more energy to sustain....it's pretty hard to explain. I never change who I really am, for example, if you ask me a hundred questions at home or in public I would answer the same, but more like how I present the answers might change? It's complicated. Any other INFJs have this issue??

From what I've been reading lately, it's very very important to be able to change and adapt our behaviour, for different situations.

It mightn't mean trying to change ourselves or be fake, but to make more of an effort to accommodate other people's styles. It seems to be a basic, essential 'social skill'.

For work, it's usually necessary; for our social lives it's helpful - unless we eventually give up and find other social groups that match us better. For loving and family relationships it can be essential too, and I suppose that's one of the sacrifices we make when our loved ones really truly matter to us.
