    Coming out of the NF closet thread

    Long time ago BIOTCH accused me of being an INFJ pretty adamently, and today I was reminded of this. I laughed it off, but then maybe wondered if that explained a few things. I'm a musician. I tend to see myself as unemotional, but maybe just have more intense emotions. I'd definitely be a more darker INFX.

    I'm intuitive. I'm introverted, perhaps the extroversion comes from Fe. A lot of Feelers might consider themselves Thinkers, because they think that makes them smarter. I essentially have noble virtue and try to do the right thing. Aka goodie two shoes. That might explain where my sense of INTJ comes from, and the extroversion could be NF.

    A nerdy ISTP gamer is also likely. At the same time, I'm a pretty big P, but INFP don't feel right, I don't think I'm in denial or am subconsciously attracted to poetry, but maybe could it be? That I'm INFJ?

    Feel free to come out of your own closet.

    If you ain't down with thinkerishness I got two words for ya

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    Is that really a justification for F-ness, however? I think the T/F divide rather describes on what you tend to base your life decisions on – your feelings of the moment or the hard facts.

    Do you pay a lot of attention to how you feel, and does this occupy you greatly? Then you may be an F. Do you often not notice how you feel until after a situation? Then you may be a T.

    One of the misconceptions about MBTI is that Thinkers don't have any real feelings at all – which is obviously impossible. I tear up at every other good opera or concert performance I attend, and I don't mind – there's a legitimate reason for being moved here, after all. Emotion in a musical context = acceptable and (in performing) even necessary; emotion anywhere else = just a side distraction that has no real impact on one's course of life. If this compartmentalisation rings familiar, you're probably a T.

    BIOTCH called me an INFJ a few times too, tbh I wouldn't put much stock in anything that person said. I think they just said it to try to rile us up, and I don't think there was anything sincere or deeper to it than that.

    INTPS and INFJs have the same thinking and feeling functions so developed INTPs and INFJs are going to have a lot of overlap in their approach to life and the way they appreciate things. The depth to which you're able to feel things doesn't mean much for figuring out if you're T or F, it's more about how you decide to weigh your feelings into the equation that determines it (at least that's my understanding of it). If I wasn't a mega T stereotype irl that constantly battles monotone expression I might have given his accusations a 2nd thought too (and this isn't to say that I don't believe I have a lot of depth of feeling (I mean shit, I work in the arts after all!)).

    Here's a self-check. You might be an INFJ if you like:

    -cat pictures
    -snark
    -private conversations with forum members
    -dark-ambient electro-whatsit
    -Hope Solo's asshole

    That should allay your concern. Based on unfair caricaturization of 1/2 dozen past members.
