    Hi, I am so glad that you asked that question! I am also a woman and unsure if I am INFP or INTP, I can see both in me. Also I could see Fi driver, or Ti driver for me, which is weird right? I test out as INTP most of the time, but with rather balanced F and T preferences. Do I have 100 different kinds of feelings about my life in me? I don’t think so. But I do have strong believes. But, these believes are a result of me getting information and learning. The information is stored like in a matrix, and my believes are like a result calculated out of all the information. If I hear something new, I have to get more info and maybe replace the node in the matrix and recalculate the result.
    I went to technical school and I am working in a technical environment, so maybe the way that I think my brain works is because of that, and I use technical language around it, but I may be a feeler; I really can’t say. I often struggle connecting with other people, but I am not so afraid of it any more and often I am doing it well. But I always found it easier to speak with men, which also may be because I was always surrounded by more men than women.
    For me, I decided to go with INTP to have a starting point to work with. But I am also willing to tap into Fi, take some quiet time to explore inner feelings and how something makes me feel as an exercise. The only thing is, I always forget to take that time XD

    I test similar to the woman who asked this question. Except I never test 50/50. I always tested INTP but with not a strong result of T over F. There’s always a 5 to 10 point difference favouring T over F. My point is that I see INFP characteristics in me. Though I definitely identify as INTP. There has to be a difference between me who are more borderline T over F and people who are strongly T over F.
