I am an ENTJ "Commander" according to the Jungian personality test.

According to the Big 5, I am: Highly Open to Experience, Moderately Conscientious, Highly Extraverted, Low in Agreeableness, and Moderate in Neuroticism.

According to the BBC Brain Sex ID thing, I am exactly between male and female.

My IQ is 135.

I am a Taurus.

PS: I also identify as an Apache Helicopter.

Wow.

Well, in my humble opinion, if you take the good bits of Cognitive Functions, Neuroscience and Enneagram you have a quick little go to guide that basically helps you communicate with others, understand their perspective, understand how their learning process and their inner drives. 

I also believe, if utilized properly, that the aforementioned can put restraints on how far Western Psychology has gone. I personally don't mean it's progress, I imply it's detreiment to 21st century society.

In my 5 year nerd rabbit hole with this stuff I kept thinking Subhan Allah, maybe we were created with certain functions to construct this flow of society. 

We need a few INFJs for a reason. ENTJs are brilliant and are hew and far between. ISFJs are some of the hardest workers and best nurtures "in real time" as I've met hence their abundance in the medical field. 

Brain scans prove the parts of the brains used by each type. Over 20 years of practical research by Katherine Fauvre connected patterns in our core emotional, mental and visceral drives, motivations and levels of health. 

No harm taking the good from what we learn, variables filtered through the equation of our deen, to help understand life, ourselves and the people around us a little better.

I am also curious as to why more rare types are represented among Shia. I see it here. I've noticed it when I travel. Very curious. Alas I need data to make such a claim. 

My purpose here though was to engage with other INFJ Shia because that's a double treat. 

Rather than look at it as a "special snowflake" :) how about reshifting your perspective (oh Ni- you can be a gift) and perhaps deduce that a person who is (by chance, I don't feel special, nor do I want any prize and Insha'Allah I am not speaking from ego or pride now) at 1% of the population wants to talk to people who may view the world the same way she does.

we are souls, intellect, and egos who wish to connect and be understood no matter what gender or type you are. 

Not even understood. People vary, within type. Obviously.

i wonder if Ni dominance and finding Islam and Shism has answered all of those nagging questions and feel as much peace as I do. 

I wanted to ask if specific duas help you feel less of .... :) what we absorb so much! 

If people want to take tests and share dialogue. It's fun. We can learn a lot. 

So let's keep it inviting.

Me too sister. A part of me was always separate from people in their company. You know all the stuff that goes on in that "separated part". Naturally I just didn't want to carry the weight of that and now just do what's natural to me. I feel relief and I enjoy nature now way more. I've been thinking a lot about balance though. But yes, fulfill my duties and other than that- the happiest I've ever been. A huge relief.

    • Salam. Please read this and ponder and think about it. Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى wouldn't just make you wear a cloth over your head for no reason, he would obviously do it for you to benefit from it.
    • Stay at home and pray for her. You will really love the outcome of this, trust me.
    • “O Muhammad ask them about the town which stood by the sea; when they exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, when their fish came to them on the day of their Sabbath on the surface of the sea, and on the day on which they do not keep the Sabbath, they did not came to them We try them because they transgressed.” (7:163) “And when a party of them said, why do you admonish a people whom Allah would destroy and whom Allah would chastise with a severe chastisement? They said, to be free from blame before your Lord and that happily they may guard (against evil)” (7:164) “So when they neglected what they had been reminded of, we delivered those who forbade evil and we overtook those who were unjust with an evil chastisement.” “Therefore when they revoltingly persisted in what they had been forbidden, we said to them; Be (as) apes, despised and hated. (7:165)
    • Salam Alaikum, The knowledgeable scholar I asked (who has studied for over 45 years) has said that this dream means your nephew is receiving blessings and barakah. When the members of ahlulbayt (a.s) were born, their parents, or rasulullah (saww) would shave their head and donate silver to charity as the same weight as their hair.. This is a good sign from your nephew and means Allah will bless him. Salam  
    • If a female is wearing a dress, why exactly does she need to cover a portion of the chest, while its being covered?. Unless the dress style is and was different to what we are comprehending or is the extra layer needed to not show form. the objective of covering is to reduce the showing of skin. Hair is a beautification, which women enjoy in designing it while it also beautifies the females appeal. Women also can use their hair to flirt with or give away signs with it, such as playing with their hair. Over all, consider the covering as a reductive method in inducing the conditions of possible distractions that can lead to sin, according to religious law. Now ofcourse, in regards to society or social arenas, behavior is depended on both the genders and the virility  of both. unfortunatley one should also focus it on from genetics, good looking sexes generally break the boundaries more in regards to appearance, where as those without, exaggerate it to compete with the gifted ones. Men will always look at the gifted and we assume, the law wants to curb the prejudice of beauty. One could question, why not just design females bald, it would simplify the whole process or reduce the desire in men for female hair styles....
