This, to me, is a fascinating community!
I've felt sure that I'm a cross between two personality types. On the enneagram I've tied on type four and five a few times. And, with MB, I've scored INJT and INFJ. Before I even got into those tests I'd notice how I'd shift between thinking and feeling as my primary modes, as though swinging from one pole to another. It's not something I can seem to be rid of and it can create a sort of dissonance that seems to disturb others, I think I've noticed.

It's comforting to know there are other people who experience this sort of thing.

Mixed Type Community
I might not be active in the community I created but that doesn't mean this community isn't here for you. :-) If you have a question, concern, advice, and/or comments to offer on this topic - please post. If not, this community is here for you when you need it.

Since the posting doesn't happening often, all new posts are moderated so that I can be sure to visit the community and potentially make a comment.

Hope all is well in your world.

I am a 4w5, INFJ, equally left/right brained, "Idiosyncratic" on Oldham.
I think of myself as two parts. The 4-ish, idiosyncratic because I'm special, emotional, right brained and dependent part of me. And then the 5-ish, idiosyncratic because I'm crazy, cold, left brained and independent part of me.
But there's more to me than that (I would hope so).

That was kind of a weird introduction.
Anyways. I like the idea of this community, I hope it grows. It's hard for communities like this to become active. I'm trying with mine. Please visit typers if you like "typing" things and people (and yourself).

The entire INFP description rings true for me, so I typically consider myself one, especially when I look at the comments of other INFPs. However, a lot of the NT and INFJ description makes sense too. Things can get very confusing.

Jung says we are imbalanced for identifying with having multiple types...


I have had access to this article for awhile now... anyways, people often say I don't understand MBTI but I usually think they are full of it because I am aware and know quite a bit even though I wouldn't consider myself an expert.

What they don't seem to like is that I'm not acknowledging particular aspects of its existence - that might be my INTP coming out to play. I believe in possibilities and anything that is *restrictive* and *already classified* leaves me no room to think and expand. When I write in LJ, I'm just developing my thoughts. I'm not writing a paper. :-)

Anyways here's an article about multiple types and imbalances and I see truth in this; however, people are too complex to judge them *imbalanced* just because they identify with more than one type.

That is all. :-)

As for people misjudging me, I suggest they ask questions first to confirm their assumptions before they hang and fry me. *giggles*

A link


I found the body and Jung linking interesting. To note: I'm not in agreement or disagreement, I'm just providing the link because I think it's interesting. In other words, I have made no judgement on whether its contents are accurate or not. :-)

Abstract minds...
...got me thinking...


If you had to choose ONE type, what would it be? I think I would choose to be an ENFJ (which is one of the types I'm professionally indicated as being) because it includes so much. A champion of the underdog, a positive go-go cheerleader, the ability to run my business based based from my knowledge of people(marketing), needing to do research and think so that I can help others reach their goals, teaching growth, harmony and knowledge. But I don't want to be focused on just being an ENFJ. Being an ENFJ can be exhausting and I like my "I" times A LOT!

Problem Solving Observation
I'm noticing that my probably ISFP partner and I (XNTP) have completely diferent ways of doing certain things.Collapse )

I'm noticing I'm really good at practical organizational problems, but terrible at routine and finding things. He's apt to panic in real world crises, but is so much better at day to day details.

So is this a NT vs. SF thing or what?
