    Glad it helped.

    Sounds like you are smarter than me. I have punched a wall or two in my wild and woolly youth.

    Here’s a podcast on INFPs:

    See if it resonates with you.

    Thank you, Charis! Yes, that was very helpful!

    I don’t think I tend to manipulate, I would say I tend to sling verbal insults, and as a woman, I’ve been known to stomp my foot for effect rather than punch a wall. Thankfully it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I’m as surprised by my reaction as the people in my line of fire.

    So, it looks like INFP (Authenticity/Exploration) might be it!! Oh, can it be true?

    The beauty of the verification process is you don’t have to buy your Starter Kit once you are verified. We gift it to you! :)

    As for Te tertiary, This will show up when you are feeling defensive and it doesn’t feel very good to use it. Do you sometimes have the tendency to manipulate others to get what you want? Or when you feel out of control do you have a tendency to lash out violently, maybe by punching a wall or by slinging strong verbal insults?

    ENFPs have charisma and their co-pilot keeps them balanced with kindness and honesty. But if they choose to ignore that introverted process they can use those social skills to take advantage of others.

    Does that help?

    P.S. I have seriously considered your Type Vertification product, and may have to go with it if I can’t find closure (Thank you for the link). What I planned on doing after I was able to confirm my type was purchase your Development Starter Kit, and from there, coaching.

    Thank you, Charis. I HAVE actually looked at ENFP, but disregarded it because of descriptions such as, “bubbly or Wildchild”. I can be quite serious actually, and I thought for a short time that I might be an NT. Temperament-wise, however, I do feel pretty confident that NF fits me.

    The fact that I’m perpetually diving down rabbit holes on this topic does seem to narrow my choices to INFP or ENFP. I have three very close introverted friends, ISTJ, INTP, INFP, and our way of presenting ourselves to the world is definitely different. In my opinion, the three though of different temperaments, seem much more alike than me. I basically “run the show”. I ask all the questions, I share my daily happenings, blah, blah, blah they sit and quietly listen, or not. By this logic, my answer SHOULD be an obvious – ENFP.

    Unfortunately, I can’t find closure in this either because of how serious I can get when I’m locked onto a particular topic of interest. I can go days barely noticing others around me, so lost in my head, I will sometimes walk into tables that have been in the same spot for years! Because of my comfort with being SO inside my head at times, I assumed I was an introvert. And because I’ve never personally met an INFJ, but had read they can be both introverted, yet very outwardly social, I assumed I was an INFJ. Sadly, those pants didn’t fit for very long either.

    Oh, and don’t get me started on my YouTube escapades – watching the “Guess What? I’m a ___!” videos. Ugh…Trying to match my type that way has all but driven me completely insane.

    So, I have question. I saw in a reply that either you or Antonia sent to someone stating:

    “Si (tertiary) = do you have to fight landing in a comfort zone and not pushing yourself”; "

    “Fe (tertiary) = fight caring about your image and courting approval/ disapproval of others in order to present your truth”.

    Now, of course, because I am, after all, ME…these both resonate:0/. Perhaps, I’m alien. At any rate, could you tell me what Te (tertiary) might look like?

    I’m not sure if this will even help me, but it might, so any help you could offer (besides, suggesting I find a therapist) would be absolutely fabulous!
