    Before coming to this page, I glanced at the post about the wounded deer leaping the highest. I immediately thought that sounded like an INFP kind of thought. Lo and behold, you indeed are an INFP… or so you claim.

    Hello Benjamin. Thanks for your comment.

    “The wounded dear” by Emily Dickinson is one of my favorite poems. It represents the epitome of my Fi. I discovered it about 4 years ago. You are right it has a very INFPish vibe to it.

    As to my “claim” of being an INFP, I am sure of my Ne. I lie somewhere in between F and T but, I lean slightly towards being an F and I have mild introversion. So I would say my preferred type is INFP.

    I also “claim” to be a Enneagram 4w5.

      Well, you certainly don’t come across as an INTP. Emily Dickinson, butterfly as your icon… If you’re an INTP, you have some very strong Feeling going on.

      What about descriptions? Even though I’m more intellectual than many INFPs, the descriptions of INFPs always fit me almost perfectly. Also, Beebe’s function order for INFPs seems to make sense of my own experience.

      Hanging out on an INTP forum made it very clear how INFP I am. There is a massive difference between your average INFP and INTP… or so it seems that way when you visit online forums. But maybe in normal life it’s harder to distinguish between the two… I don’t know.

      It’s been a while since I’ve looked at the Enneagram. If I remember correctly, I think 4w5 fit me best as well.

        Interesting analysis. That is typical Fi in action, sensing the “vibes” of the site. Well, it’s funny because about 2 weeks ago (when I first started the blog), I had picked a plain brownish template and no butterflies, just a “moon”. I had a couple of articles about science. I actually decided to add more “F” to my blog, so I changed the template and added some “personal” stuff. So that’s my point exactly, I am neither here nor there when comes to T/F. I find that I stand out in an INFP crowd, and I don’t exactly fit in with the INTPs either.

        INTP forums are a very superficial representation of the type because usually any forum circling around one type would embody an Ideal of the type that all members try to live up to. So a displays of emotions or a love for poetry is not likely to take place at an INTP forum. I actually dated an INTP, and in real life, those guys appear pretty gullible and sweet and are very humble, on their forums they seem arrogant and detached.

    I agree that forums are superficial representations of type… or rather I’d say they can become stereotypical exaggerations of type. but it’s because of these exaggerations that I could better understand the subtle differences between two closely related Introverted types.

    It’s interesting that you purposely added more stereotypically F things to this blog in order to make it feel more personal. My blog doesn’t appear as F, but having a kitty as an icon is more of an F thing to do. I often blog about what many people think of as stereotypically T subject matter such as science.

    I can think of some people I’ve known who might’ve been INTP, but I’m not sure. I could imagine that I could be attracted to this type in real life because they probably do have a similar way of interacting with the world as do INFPs.

    I’m assuming that you disagree with the theory that MBTI is based upon. You apparently don’t think someone has to be absolutely one function or another. Do you think MBTI Step II explains this or do you prefer the scientific simplicity of traits theory?

    According to the MBTI Step II national sample, INFPs are almost equally strong on the opposing T?F facets of Questioning (T) and Accommodating (F); but INFPs are typically strongly in preference with all of the other F facets. Do you think that might explain your sense of T or do you stand by your opinion that you truly aren’t a single type? It doesn’t really matter, but I’m just a curious cat.

    Looking at the other T/F facets, it is a complex picture. I know that F facets describe my experience all the way back to my childhood, but all of the T facets are abilities that I’ve learned and have come to define a major part of who I am. In a discussion, I can act very T like. However, even my everyday thinking has taken on strong T aspects.

    It’s confusing. I was raised by strongly TJ parents, but they raised me in a strongly F church (Unity: New Thought Christianity, very New Agey). So, I had the polar opposites of T and F modelled for me. It’s hard to know what is inherent. In different circumstances, my personality would’ve of course developed differently… to an extent.

    But when I read INFP descriptions or Beebe function role descriptiosn, it just makes sense of my experience. When you read such things, does it not make sense, not feel quite right? I’m trying to sense what your experience is.

    Have you studied Beebe’s theory. I know it’s been quite helpful to many people who didn’t perfectly identify with the stereotypical type descriptions. What Beebe does is describe how differently an INTP uses T compared to an INFP and how differently an INFP uses F compared to an INTP. Everyone uses all functions or else they’d be seriously dysfunctional. Type isn’t about using a function and it isn’t even precisely about how often you use a function. According to Beebe, it’s how you use a function.

    Sorry to badger you, but I always love the opportunity to learn about another person’s experience… especially as it relates to psychology.

      Thanks for taking the time to write such an in-depth reply. You bring up so many points and that gives me ideas for new blog posts.

      I think in you’re case showing signs of both T/F is a matter of (as you mentioned) developing your inferior function which is Te, and that shows in your interest in understanding theories and frameworks. I can also tell from your style of writting that your dominant function is Fi , as you tend to be hovering around a circle of ideas. whereas, Ti dominants tend to write in a very consice manner with a clear logical sequence.

      For me personally, I would say the confusion is between Fi and Ti. I consider myself an INFP because I believe Fi to be my stronger and more dominant function. However I tend to exihibit some Ti-like qualities and I always score low on F and occasionally score as an INTP. How that fits into MBTI theory is a question I am still pondering.

      I have read beebe’s theories briefly, and from my understanding he deals with all of the eight functions and their attitudes and how they are manifested in different types. His thoery studies the four opposing functions as what he calls the “shadow”. So I guess what you are proposing is something a long the lines of my Shadow functions are meddling with my understanding of my personality? That seems interesting. I will look into that further.

      I will get back to you with my take on the MBTI and MBTII step II later because, it seems to be related to a post that I was in the process of writting so I will include it there…

        I’m glad that my thoughts resonated with thoughts of your own. Are you still working on that post? I’ll try to remember to stop by here in the near future to check out your blog again.

        Happy New Years!

        Happy New Year to you to.

        The post is on the way. Hopefully, I will fight the urge to tweak the appearance of the blog and start writing something…
