What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
Ever since I was in grade 9 I’ve been really interested, almost obsessed with myers briggs and personality typing in general. I stopped short at the traditional typing system, but then I discovered a youtube channel called INFP & INTJ coffee (currently called Casual Cognition) which referenced cognitivetype.com. At first I was a bit skeptical of the microexpressions and vultology, but lately it seems to have become more of an interest to me.
What did/do you type as in other systems?
I’ve typed as various Feeling types. I’ve been typed as an ISFP, INFP, ENFP and INFJ. Later on I was pretty sure I was an ENFP, until I did a test from cognitive8.com which said I was ENTJ. I was shocked and quite angry that someone dared to type me as a Te dom, its a function I had a bad opinion of. I argued with the test maker, but she insisted it was correct. The only part I agreed with was that my Fi was very well developed, but it made no sense to me since ENTJ represses Fi. I decided to dismiss it at first as inaccurate. However I then decided to take this test on cognitivetype.com and I received a similar typing, however I was now an INTJ or Ni-Te. The description of Ni dominant function as well as the tertiary Fi struck a chord with me. I’m not so sure about the Te, but perhaps I use it more often than I think. And I do think I have a love/hate relationship with Se.
