Same But Different In some ways we are all the same. We all have the same human nature. We share a common humanity.
April 26, at 1: AJ Drenth has written quite a bit about this at the PersonalityJunkie website. Apparently, the inferior can exert disproportionate influence, and some people end up picking careers or relationship partners that appeal to it instead of the dominant function.
Drenth recommends steering clear of this tendency! In the case of an INFP, the inferior function, Te, would definitely seek out careers in research science. And actually, an INTP, who uses dominant Ti plus auxiliary Ne, would probably be less excited about the methodical formalities of the experimental process and much happier in a more free-form environment like a think tank or an IT start-up.

I saw this in action this past weekend. However, conditions were perfect this weekend- plenty of low-pitched male speakers. The transformation back to extraversion was amazing. Thanks for sharing your unique story, Hilary. May 21, at 9: There are many factors that can affect how the results of the MBTI turn out.
Current environment is one of those factors. Oftentimes, an individual will type differently in a work setting versus home. However, it might affect how you would answer a question on a type assessment.
