    I wish I were a T instead of an F. Thinking things through and not living in a dream aimlessly never achieving anything. Ts tend to be good at science aswell. Something society values, not art or music.
    You can't have a whole society of T type people, it would go to pieces; I mean, it would be efficient and advanced, everything would work very well ... but not in a nice German way so it has the heart too, more in a Vulcan way so that's it's just repressed emotion and logic.

    And, much as I admire the Vulcans, I wouldn't want to live in their society. You need the heart, and F type people are the providers of that.

    Do you find it hard to find other INFPs in real life? I'm surrounded by T people, and Js. It's only when I go online where INFPs seem to exist!
    Awh, you'll find some! Or if not, you should be happy with being the original one. My closest friend of 10 years is an INFP too. Maybe that's why we've been friends for so long.

    I've always found it funny that INTJ is the rarest type ... and yet, I know so many INTJ people! I suppose that people are going to find others they identify with, though, so it makes sense INTJ people would have INTJ and similar friends. And then consider finding them in places like TSR. At first, that really surprised me that so many people are INTJ on here, but then I thought about TSR and what INTJ means...

    People who are introverts (where else are we going to go on a Friday night?), have intuition and think abstractly (TSR seems ideal for 'This is where I want to go, how do I get there?' posts because someone else always knows another part of it), enjoy thinking (it's a forum about education, that seems to need no explaining) and who exercise judgement (come on, the whole site is set up for people to explore all possibilities and get a head start.)

    It it made sense that so many people on here would be INTJ.

    I wasn't being literal either.

    I don't need some article to tell me it's all right to be introverted, I already knew that. Most people are all right.



    Sorry, I'm INTJ.
    I'm an INTJ :five:

    I agree. I never wanted to be an extravert. People are the way they are, there's not a perfect "type"

    Apparently, I'm an INFJ. Anyone else? All tests say I'm INFJ, even if I don't agree with everything they say. I think it's supposed to be one the "rarest" personality types, lol.
    People who look down on introverts. Well they're ignorant and they're idiots.

    MEEE! I was just about to ask that question lol. Apparently we only make up around 4% of the population!

    And psh to that article. It's all good being an introvert I didn't realise people like Gwenyth Paltrow were introverted too though, you kind of assume that since they're famous actors they're extroverted.

    Interesting! I've read about it and how "rare" it is. It's strange, haha. But I'm glad to meet a fellow INFJ! lol.

    And about actors, I'm not surprised. A lot of them are introverted and shy.(Rupert Grint anyone?)

    My old manager used to have a thing against introverts and used to treat us with contempt. He told my fellow colleague that she wasn't suited to clinical psychology because she's too introverted. She's having the last laugh now because she got onto two clinical doctorate programmes. All his extrovert flock have deserted him and he's had to spend yet again more money training new employees (the training involves a 1 year post-graduate course at university). We all up and left after completing the course.

    It's silly to have all extravert's working in one department, sometimes nothing ends up being done because everyone is trying to out do the other. Our meetings never used to get anywhere because everyone wanted to vocalise their ideas and didn't want the next person to have a word.

    I like being introverted, some of the greatest minds and people I respect are. Just got done reading Jay-Zs book, he describes himself as an introvert and more of a thinker than a sayer many times in the book. I prefer being an introvert, it IS NOT a vice or something to look down on - if anything its a virtue.

    Anyone that thinks there's something wrong with introverted people is a ****ing moron, and I say this not as one but as someone that is really quite firmly in the middle.

    For the most part I prefer people that are at least mildly introverted; definitely seem to be more intelligent and interesting people in general, as far as I've always experienced.

    Considering this is the first time I've came across this, it's sad there is so few INTJs I done the test and I belong to the INTJ group apparently and I can tell there are few people at my school like this :/ THANK GOODNESS FOR TSR!

    I don't get it. Most people seem to think introverts are the quite shy people with no confidence? I am an introvert but all that means is I don't like socialising all that much. I do not lack confidence, I do not suffer in social situations and I am not afraid to speak up. I am sure there are many more like myself because we have confidence to do our own thing without needing the support and validation of others around us, you can't really do this and be shy.

    I've had that result a lot of times, but sometimes there's a T in there instead, and I can't remember the other weird combination I had once.
