While the Myers-Briggs test is not flawless in regards to producing accurate results, and different psychologists have different ways at explaining the types produced by such an inquiry, I would like to point out a few things I found particularly representative of myself written within the online article “Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging” by Joe Butt, found at www.typelogic.com.
I think Butt describes me well when he writes, “Accurately suspicious about others' motives, INFJs are not easily led. These are the people that you can rarely fool [most] of the time.” This is not to say I am not fooled by others sometimes. And it is also not to say that I have an elaborate knowledge of a person’s internal motivation(s) for performing the given action under suspicion. I think it simply means that I, being the cynical person I am, usually suspect there being a hidden reason for the way a person is acting at a given time. I am usually right about such a suspicion and I like to try and figure out what that or those motivations are.
I am able to put my full trust in others eventually, it just takes some time before I lower my guard. There are a few people I am almost always entirely trusting of.
I also find an extremely accurate description of myself during social settings when Butt writes, “INFJs, like many other FJ types, find themselves caught between the desire to express their wealth of feelings and moral conclusions about the actions and attitudes of others, and the awareness of the consequences of unbridled candor.” Equally, I hold others in high regard when they are frank in expressing their thoughts. I think a love of the humble, yet intelligent person I aspire to be is the root of such an infatuation.
However, in regards to the quote above, due to recent study of Moral Theory in conjunction with Epistemology, and a continued study of said fields, I have come to have a far less certain grasp of morality in general. This uncertainty leads to my not having such strong moral conclusions initially. Although, I am still fairly confident, for reasons not entirely explicated to myself, that normative morality exists in a substantial sense.
I would encourage the viewer to take the Myers-Briggs test, and Google their results. While psychology is a more recently developed social science, and is yet still to be very clear or accurate in discerning mental states, I do think the psychological Behaviorists have something going for them.
