I'd say ENTP and ENFP. I'm surprised so many people say INFP and ISFP. All the INFPs I know (myself included) stick out among others because they're always rambling on about ideas and imaginary things, while the ISFPs tend to fit in with everyone else and actually enjoy doing things. It's really easy to tell them apart in real life, but maybe that's not the case when it comes to fictional characters.

MBTI type of The two most "similar" types

.INTP and INTJ look similar outwardly but they reason very differently. Talk to one and it's crystal clear which they are.

.We're talking about the cognitive differences or the behavioral ones?I had trouble determining if I was ISTP or INTP for the longest time. They can look very similar.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of The two most "similar" types. ISFPs and INFPs are even harder to tell apart.To me, the hardest dichotomy is I/E, especially in people who have tendency to be ambivert, like Te doms and Ne doms.Which of the 16 personality types is The two most "similar" types?.P/J types can be difficult to tell apart at first glance, or if you don't know the persons well. When you know them on some extents, the differences are vast.I don't think P/J dimension is hard to differentiate, since they use completely different functions. Maybe it is hard only when you don't know people beyond the surface.INFP and ISFP are very hard to tell apart at times. The only way I can is that ISFPs tend to favor visuals while INFPs tend to favor words.INFP and ISFP are probably quite diverse in their behaviour. They were the only pair of types that were almost evenly distributed along all 6 enneagram stacking types.I guess INFP and ISFP seem very similar in the way they speak, but they can be very different in it comes thomas the fucktard jungP and J can get hard sometimes because a lot of people are clustered around the P/J boundary, but for people who strongly prefer P or strongly prefer J, it shouldn't be too hard.On second thought, it may be those who share a dominant function that are hardest to tell apart. ISFP & INFP, ESTP & ESFP, ISTP & INTP, INTJ & INFJ, etc. Enneatypes also correlate pretty strongly to dominant functions. For example, ISTP and INTP are both almost exclusively 5s. ISFP and INFP are almost exclusively 4 and 9. ESTP and ESFP tend toward 7, with the ESTP having a secondary preference toward 8 and ESFP toward 2. ESFJ and ENFJ are almost exclusively 2s, etc.other examples are Will Graham and Fox Mulder; Buda and Osho; Dr Strange and Reed Richards; Johan and Chrollo...INFJs with strong Ti, or in Ti loop are very similar to INTPs. Rust and L; Plato and Descartes; Jesus and Prometheus; Schopenhauer and Kant...#butterfly, I think you might be true in real life, but in interviews is somewhat difficult to differentiate INFP and ISFP, I mean except the case where the INFP is more analytical or the ISFP more ''manly'' (although still soft-spoken and stuff), they can be very hard to tell apart: like with Cobain. Meanwhile, usually INFJ and INFPs rare easier to tell apart (although there are exceptions like Gaiman of course). I think it's harder for people to tell if they're INFP or INFJ themselves, then for others, as aux Fe has its peculiarities.Two types who doesn't match a single function won't be really similar but the two most similar are going to be the ones who differentiate in the function which is most similar to its opposite.We're not talking about behaviors. Obviously an INTP and an INTJ will behavior almost the same, but their way to work is kind of opposite. I'm still thinking some SFP/NFP comparison to be the most cognitively-on-work similar.I actually agree with Scotty about this. I think probably the J/P distinction is the hardest to tell. Confusing INTJ/INTP, INFP/INFJ etc. is the most common beginner's problem, it's only with function magic the two become marginally different (Ne/Ni, etc.) although I'm not sure which type J/P type I think are most similar.ESTP vs ESFP, INTP vs INTJ? I disagree about the N vs S difference being the least conspicuous. I actually think it's the most.Huh, really? This doesn't ring true to me at all. I was the awkward teacher's pet while the ISFPs were one of the cool kids, bad at school, but who gained everyone's respect being able to climb trees the highest, drawing and doing sports. :P I always felt like they were in a completely different world. I feel more close to other IN types.Yeah, I think they're Fi-doms, as INFPs are the least likely to appear ''intellectual'' of the INxx and ISFPs can be pretty contemplative for SPs.Generally speaking, the N/S difference seems least conspicuous. ISFP and INFP are especially difficult to tell apart unless you can dive into their mind.The STPs I think are pretty similar, as are the NTPs.



I don’t agree with that fg. In my experience, ENFPs and ENTPs can be very different. To be honest with you, E/I is by far the least significant of the four distinctions so one of those (xNTJ, xSFJ, etc.) would make the most sense

i obviously don't take the i/e dichotomy because it's obviously the most similar type. if we want an  order of this it would be: STP>SFJ>STJ>NFP>NTJ>NTP>SFP>NFJ
