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. Current Mood: cheerful

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). Current Mood: pleased

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* Current Mood: contemplative
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. :-) Current Mood: contemplative
...got me thinking...http://www.livejournal.com/community/abstract_minds/2444.html?thread=4748#t4748
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! Current Mood: contemplative
