Arguably ISFP just because they show less of their personality in public than ESFPs.

No INFP votes? I know they are supposed to be extreme feelers inside, due to them being dominant Fs, but I imagine that would not show as much, with it being Fi. Also there's the INxP confusion which seems to be common at least with 4w5/5w4s.

“Besides INFJ” I’m dying hahahaha

Can you name another feeler type more likely to be mistaken for a thinker? As an INFJ 5w4 I often get mistaken for an INTJ.

MBTI type of Feeler most likely to be mistyped as a thinker besides INFJ

How do you know you're not a thinker ?

But if you think that ISFPs also have "fi" dom and express themselves with "Se" rather "Ne" (or just S >N ), what make them more "objective"/"direct" and it can make them seem more "cold" than they really are. If we think for enneagram too, ISxPs tend to share the same type (9w8 and 6 - both types very very common for them) more than INxPs (INFPs tends to be 4's or 9's when INTPs usually are 5's, sometimes 6's and rarely 9w1 or 4w5 -they tend to have 4 and 9 only on their tritype-).

. But if I pass it to the empirical, I have seen more INxPs confused about they T/F traits than ISxPs, but that would be because on internet forums we see people typed as INxPs more than ISxPs

I get more objective, but why would Se make them seem colder?

I sort of got mixed up in thoughts, but "cold" was more in the sense of saying that when someone is usually more objective and direct in their sentences people tend to regard that someone as "cold" or "distant" for not prolonging too much

Maybe. But wouldn't intuition make INFP feelings more complicated and difficult to get, giving them a cold and distant impression because of that?

I thought about that.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Feeler most likely to be mistyped as a thinker besides INFJ. In fact, probably INFPs may be more "cold" because like ISFPs they also aren't too comfortable showing what they feel at first, and are less likely than ISFPs to pick up these feelings and expose them through a variety of actions. But I believe that it's precisely because of intuition that they will be much more expressive and expansive when they talk about what they feel and think, and as a consequence they will seem less "cold" and more "emotional" to those around them.Which of the 16 personality types is Feeler most likely to be mistyped as a thinker besides INFJ?.

If you really are an INFJ 5w4, then I would imagine you're probably also not very F nor J. 5w4 wouldn't be a common Enneagram type at all for people who are very I, N, F, and J INFJs who do have distinct F and J preferences would likely identify with other Enneagram types, like 1 (J, less F), 6 or 9 (F, not J), over 5 or even 4 with less emphasis on I and N. It would just be really weird for a strong FJ-leaning INFJ to identify with a type from another system that's very TP in nature. It's not really possible to pick out certain feeler types that seem more thinker-like compared to others without  further extrapolation. Assuming we're being inflexible with how F or T a type is (ENFP and INFJ are both "F," so we'll assume the marginal preferences are the "same" in that both types aren't really given a visible distinction of how F or T they are. In other words, we're also not going to assume that "F" represents a certain fixed, quantifiable preference over "T," but rather that a preference for "F" itself in T/F will be removed from the equation; ENFP and INFJ would therefore just be ENP and INJ feeler types), the next thing we would look at is how the other preferences reflect how feeling or thinking someone is.. A very important concept to think about here is the idea of focused preferences, where certain preferences are prioritized over others regardless of how they fall on a numerical scale as quantified by tests. If you're 80/20 E over I but only 60/40 T/F on a hypothetical Myers-Briggs test where each preference dimension (like T/F) is scored using 10 equally weighted questions, it doesn't necessarily mean that you as a person actually identify all that much with being an extravert compared to anything else you'd take away from your results. If your personality revolves around your responses to the T/F scale that resulted in 60/40, then there are specific things the T/F questions ask for that you may be certain about but not necessarily certain in the same direction as scored by T/F. Now bearing that concept in mind, I do believe we can infer how focused people of certain personality types tend to be even though these types do not directly take such a thing into account and show you how you fall along the "line of priority." It would definitely be a case-by-case thing, but the preferences do lean a certain way here simply because certain combinations of preferences describe personalities on a general scale better than others. If you can see that NP and SJ tap into very similar concepts when grouped together, you may realize that being NJ or SP is contradictory to an extent that you wouldn't imagine there are very many people who are simultaneously strong with both preferences—and not contradictory in the "human" way but rather in a theoretical fashion (the "human" kind of contradiction is I think why people in typology have such a distaste for "the dichotomies"). But again, by applying a similar kind of flexibility to our own example, certain types end up being more focused with its preference for feeling or thinking and its lack thereof. Let's imagine the NJ/SP contradiction again. I think with that in mind, it should maybe become increasingly clear that the types that are not T/F focused are NPs and SJs but not necessarily that NJs and SPs are T/F focused. There is a heavier emphasis on being more N(P)-leaning among NPs and consequently being more S(J)-leaning among SJs; these (eight) types will I think have much more emphasis (or focus) on the second dimension, N/S. An interesting thing to think about, though, is also how being T/F itself may be closer to an S way of looking at things—having a strong and fixed T/F preference is a more "stagnant" or "decided" way of reacting to the world around you that would definitely lean more S and J than N and P. NJs and SPs I don't think have a particular inclination for being T/F, but it does seem more likely that they would have heavier preferences for it since there is a "breaking apart" of two almost singular concepts—NP and SJ—in the second dimension, which implies that T/F may generally be more focused. It's not a rule or anything, though, since it's 100% possible to not have any focus in the preferences at all, hence I think why so many people can score so wildly differently in a not-so-time-distant retest. So I think in order to be T/F focused, you would have to be more J-inclined than not (as well as S, but less so I think since T/F seems more like a method spawned from a worldview instead of a thing that deals with the worldview itself). The opposite I think applies too, but I think there's a heavier pull on N going along with P since focusing on T/F moves away from N. The awkward thing here is that N/S can genuinely be gauged in an "S is a lack of N" kind of way while T/F sort of can't since it's a little bit of a false dichotomy where "the lack of T does not mean F" and vice versa, which is why we can't really polarize and assume that an inverse statement is true. The reason so many FJs relate to being "Fe" is because J goes into being F in a way that P does not, hence why Fi can often be described as "self-centered" or "selfish" or "individualistic," which are all more P in nature… so also why FPs were given Fi instead of FJs in the stack. It's like real MBTI concepts and extrapolations got simplified into generalizations people could easily wrap their heads around. I would also say introversion and extraversion does play a bit of a part here too since I think introverts in general are just more focused (not focused in the same way I described earlier) in a way that might somewhat coincide with that inclination toward being focused on T/F, but certainly not in any significant way I would imagine. All in all, I think it boils down this way for least focused on T/F types:NP > SP >= SJ > NJ Whether or not all of this relates to being "mistyped as a thinker" is up to you (I would say it happens if you have a weaker T/F preference, but we can't really gauge that with hard-preference types), but I do think the "thinkiest feeler" would be ENFP, followed by INFP, then ESFP, then ISFP, then ESFJ, then ISFJ, then ENFJ… and finally, INFJ.

Yes, I am an INFJ with a weaker Fe, and my Ti is stronger than my Fe. I think if there was a personality type that went Ni>To>Fe>Se I would say that would be me. I dwell highly in my Ni, and then my Ti likes to sort everything out and create connections and predictions off information I take in. I am definitely INFJ and unfortunately not INTJ or INTP, though sometimes I wish I was so maybe my intellectual side could develop in a more organized fashion.   I highly disagree with the order you have the "thinkiest-feeler" in. ENFP for example, I know a lot of them and they don't think nearly as logically or thoroughly as any INFJ I know of. I don't have time to have a debate, but I would still do your research and analyze the types more because I don't see how you could form a list such as that one. INFJ would definitely be first by quite a bit. My INFP 4w5 dad and my INTJ 4w5 friend are the only ones I can really have intellectual conversation with on the level I want. My dad can hardly do so though, because he prefers to stay surface level (same goes with another INFP friend of mine). My ENFP girlfriend is even more surface than they are but can get deep when she chooses, but isn't very logical and can be very gullible. But I love her lol, we balance each other out.

It sounds like you're only using your own anecdotes and your own definitions of the types to arrive at "INFJ would definitely be the first by quite a bit." I'm talking in theoretical terms, but it seems like you only disagree with me because of your personal experiences with people who you believe are certain types. I'm not really convinced.  And if your "Ti" is stronger than your "Fe" in a way where you would be T > F, then you're not an INFJ. It's interesting that you're measuring your personal development along a derivative system that has been so arbitrarily conceived and can be intepreted in so many different ways. If it works for you, that's fine… but keep in mind that it's not MBTI and that I can't actually trust that "INFJ" to you is the same INFJ that exists in Myers-Briggs, the INFJ that I guess to be among the least thinking of the feelers.

This is easy. Many dominant or auxillary Pi(Si and Ni) will think they are thinkers do to the fact their perception are more reflective. Pe are more likely to open to the idea of being a feelers because their perception (Ne and Se) are more outward. Function wise.  

Very interesting... Never thought of it this way.
