Question #1215187434Friday, 4-Jul-2008
Category: INFj ISFj Tests
Is it possible to be a mixture of 2 types. When I take the Socionics test the result is infj and the MBTI result is isfj. I've read the portraits for both types and they both sound so much like me. -- anon

A1 I find that the easiest way to figure out your type is understanding the different quadra values and relationships with other types. INFJ's are "Delta" http://wikisocion.org/en/index.php?title=Delta_Quadra whereas ISFJ's are "Gamma" http://wikisocion.org/en/index.php?title=Gamma_Quadra Also read descriptions of the conflicting and dual types of INFJ and ISFJ -- Anonymous
A2 In a way yes I believe it is possible, but there will be one type you identify with more than the other. -- Anonymous

A3 I agree. Depending on when and where I test and even who I am friends with when I take the m-b or socionics tests, I get either ENTP or ESTP. I wouldn't say I lean towards one or the other. I am very earthy, spontaneous, live in the moment, but then other times I am dreamy, philisophical and wrapped up in my own thoughts. For me, I believe that it depends on the person I hang out with and what my life is like at the time, but I'd say I am a good 50/50 with N and S. I think that a lot of people can change back and forth between N and S, but it's how often you do it that determines what type you lean towards. What I think is interesting is that many m-b fans seem to want to stuff you into one category and I don't beleive everyone can be. I would much rather get to know 100% of my personality than 50% of it so I see no harm in reseaching both sides for your enlightenment. Nothings simply black or white. -- differentp
A4 The Socionics type and the MBTI type can be different and often are different as definitions of information elements and their effects on the behaviour are different. So it's quite possible that your Socionics type actually is INFj (small j) and your MBTI ISFJ (capital J). Socionics and MBTI are DIFFERENT systems! ISFJ is not ISFj and INFJ is not INFj! -- piccolo_michel
