Reply To: How did you first learn about your four letter type?


I am an INTP – but I wasn’t always. I studied astrology/numerology in the 90’s so there are some great influences there. When I was growing up I was extremely straight-laced, focused, determined, duty-ful (still am to a point – I dont stop working). In my psychology class in 1996 we took the extensive Myer-Briggs test and I got ISFJ and it was broken down by points and I was nearly even between F and T but very strongly J and I. I was very “strict” with rules and to the extreme, disciplined. I basically learned to let loose once I moved to LA, became a “dreamer,” grew to have more of my OWN mind and voice (and made many enemies from my wisdom and logic) and with absolute disdain of the sheeple mentality of humanity and absolutely AGAINST being a follower, yet have this extreme sensitivity to all that surrounds me in the world that eventually I went nowhere and here I am LOST today – a “P” LOL 🙁

But even still – I was given an ISFJ profile and I can also relate to it (fact collectors, kind, sympathetic, teachers, conservative). I took this MBTI test years after college and got something else but cannot find that evidence. EVERY test I have taken since has been INTP and I believe I fit this most of this profile, except I am not so “cold.”

My points during the Myer-Briggs test in 1996 were as follows:
Extrovert 3
Introvert 24
Sensing 15
Intuitive 8
Thinking 11
Feeling 12
Judging 24
Perceiving 2
