The available evidence strongly suggests INFp, so that is the type you should believe that you are until it is proven false. So far no one on this fourm has come up with an argument against INFp that is even close to deserving serious consideration.
My father also says IEE fits me the best so far, so he hasn't looked only at quadras. Have you seen the Socionics Clinic thread? There's more info on there.

Acknowledging your post, chinosleep. I don't have a whole lot to say about it yet.

Either way we do know we have ENFp, INFj, INFp. So.....

Rationality (Judging)

The person who has such sign, makes leveled rhythm of life in consecutive order. He subordinates all actions of a definite succession, decomposes everything in own definite order. He follows by a definite way, it is difficult to make him change his mind (sometimes, yes). He usually plans his actions beforehand and in each situation follows his plan or schema (envisions, yes). He legibly imagines what will do during a day (on certain things). But if it is necessary to rebuilt under the the inflected conditions and circumstances he straines, making a lot of efforts, for is disturbed the measure of actions. Therefore it often happens, that the circumstances have already changed but the person prolongs to think and to act according to the pre-positioned plan, that results him in due course in blind corner (yes; it can depend, though, on the situation. I'm not thoroughly inflexible). It is possible to call it as peculiar "bit seizure".

He will not do several acts synchronously, he works without changing the marked plan, therefore he starts new operation only after completion the previous one, othervise it beats him out from a track (ha! Not me). He stands ostinately on his own, does not revise his stands, tends to be the a master of a position (depends). He holds on to principles, established rules and norms, respects traditions and customs (depends). He follows his own understanding in everything, if he has already judgement on the person, perceives him like he thinks about him, instead of perceiving him according to his behavior (Yes; when I have feelings for a person, I either like them or don't, and good/bad acts will further my opinion). The words: "The Person in a case" are about the rational person.

He sets the operating instructions, does not search for new methods and alternatives (not after I've established a method), does not charge himself with new situations, gives advantage to the old tested ways, for he is a little conservative (yes, I can be).

He insists on timeliness beginning of implementation of operation, he wants the operation to be carried out methodically, sequentially (*shrugs*). He abides the order, he is punctual, accurate, precise and hopes to find these qualities in others (to a point, I am). He puts each thing on its own place and wants to see it right there (Nope). He writes down about things which should make, sometimes writes a diary (yeah). He holds on to the order on the job and at home, irritates when somebody sidetracks him (depends on how focused I am and how interested in the project I am).

Rational rerson has his own style, which is characterized by regularity and constancy (to a point). Any unplanned variation can call rough reaction.

Irrationality (Perceiving)

Having such sign the person quickly accepts and values a situation. But he does not come into it at once, some time looks narrowly at the created conditions, only then makes a choice (I don't act decisively, if that's what this is saying). He will not hurry with the conclusions: to reach something, it is necessary for him to ripen and to feel an internal jerk: "it is time". If he accepts a situation, it is easy for him to find his own place. Due to his impulsiveness and flexibility he easy tailored for nonconstant circumstances (I can roll with the punches if necessary). He considers that a development of events will put everything on the places. In a desperate situation he does not loose himself and does not depend on confluences of circumstances, he easy does smoothly varying transferring and goes out of it (I dunno, I stress easily). He demonstrates diverse alternatives, stages of a development of events (maybe). If it is necessary to leave from an uncomfortable situation, he acts even more quickly, and stops to be active as soon as purpose is reached (don't know).

He can hold down some situations under check. He selects at present moment the most effective situation, the most optimal one (possibly; this sounds good) and changes one plans by others if it is necessary. He starts to do synchronously several matters, does them simultaneously, begining with one matter and switching over to the other, successfully completing everything (completing? What is the meaning of this word?). As a rule he acts according to a situation and does not overstrain himself with the plans and terms of implementation of operations. He easily goes on mutual concessions (maybe, if I interpret this correctly).

He never prepares for any matter beforehand (don't know about that). Never retries in operation, do everything extempore. He can delay with matters, sidetrack them to the last minute, relying on his inspiration, the skill to improvise, or happy case (Yes!). He tries to find new, unusual methods and does not use the old ones.

The abstractions during operation do not foil. All operatings depend on his mood (yup), and the smallest jerk becomes a source of inspiration absorbing in a matter, thus the pace of work is inflected. Having undergone defections he easily switch over to something else ( ). Thus undertakes a great many of matters, which are even little bound among themselves.

He ignores conventional traditions, rigid systems (ack), rules and standard routines (I don't necessarily follow them to the letter if I don't have to). The necessity to hold on to the plan steadily disturbs him. He manages well with sudden and extreme situations. He bents to looking for alternatives and miscellaneous approaches. At a solution of a problem he discovers multi-variant approach. He respects the order, but it is pleasant for him to convert each work into an entertainment, if the work is uninteresting it loses its sense.

The indorsement for fruitful life is everything which can bring novelty and variety. The sudden random variations during a day promote capacity for work, for he requires a choice of operatings, probable alternatives of behavior, relationships between the people, phenomena, things. The extreme situations inspire him and if it is necessary he works with availability also in after-hour time.

I or P Kanerou?
My steam ran out at the end. Hence no comments.

Blast. Anything in parentheses is mine (my comment).
