    @sarahfi, @zee,  I think I didn’t make it clear that I need this to be a line edit. If you’re still cool with doing it, go ahead and fill out the form and I’ll add you to the doc.

    Hey Maya!

    (We’re going to pretend for a bit that I didn’t completely forget that I was on Story Embers)

    Good to see you here. @lianajdouglas would probably say that she hopes you use the site more than she does, and I’d have to agree with her. (Both that you should use it more than she does and that you should use it more than I do. ;))

    Oh, I’ve experianced this too. One reason I’ll feel guilty is because I’m writing when 1) I’m supposed to be doing something else (AKA major procrastination), or 2) my parents have said or set expectations for me to be following that, when spending that time to write, is not honouring their desires.

    Maybe consider if you’re supposed to be spending time on something else rather than writing. I’m not saying there’s no time or place to write, but writing shouldn’t be the only thing we do.

    Here's your character. Sorry it looks so bad. I'm not a great artist.

    Yeah I don’t have instagram either so if you could share it on here. . .

     

    Let’s see. One of my antagonist’s name is Daemon Stoner. He’s tall– probably around 6’2″– with wavy blond hair and peircing blue eyes. He’s very muscular, having lived on the streets all his life. He’s a jerk but he’s british and very refined about it. Um… He’s tan, has very sharp and defined features with an angular face. He’s 17, almost eighteen.

    *raises hand* I’ve never done one of these before but it sounds cool. What do I have to trade to get the art?

    XD It takes time to understand everything about it. Took me about six to eight months to get a good grip on all the functions, etc., and it’s still not the easiest at times. 😛

    Yes, that would be correct. Here’s another link that you might find helpful in figuring it out: https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/2016/12/15/si-user-ni-user-difference-introverted-sensing-introverted-intuition/

    My book is called The Reflections, and I’ll do my best to describe it in three seconds.

    Em Gades is chosen as one of the thirty smartest teenagers in the world to participate in the Reflections, a series of compititions designed to select those who would be the best leaders in the Alliance. At first, it seems like an intense game for all those playing, something they compete in to prove they are the best, but when the teens realize that those who lose get killed, it suddenly turns into something much more than a competition: It’s a fight for their lives.

    Also, about what Corine said about the honour, INFJs can be honourable, but not all of them are. I have an INFJ character who will straight up murder people if they’re in his way. He has the end goal in mind– destroy the Alliance (bad government)– which is the same goal that my main character, Em has. However, because he has the end goal so clearly in mind he allows himself to do such as kill people. It’s justified because it’s what he believes he must do. Em, who’s an ISTJ like me, sees the details and the people he’s killing, and because of her Fi (introverted feeling) her personal morals won’t let her team up with someone who’s willing to murder people. Not to say ISTJs can’t be bad guys too. Darth Vader is often typed as an ISTJ.

    For more info on good/bad of each type I’d suggest this link: https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/2017/07/31/evil-versions-every-myers-briggs-personality-type/

    Sometimes pinpointing his negative traits can be the most helpful in figuring out his type.

    @e-k-seaver

    Okay, so I’m an ISTJ, which shares two cognitive functions with an ISFJ.

    Not to get too deep in cognitive functions, but here’s the stacks for the two you’re considering:

    ISFJ- Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

    INFJ- Ni-Fe-Ti-Se

    Fe, or Extroverted Feeling, is very compassionate, wanting the best for the group (e.g. How do they feel about this situation. To quote MBTIfiction.com, they are:

    Morality derived from without, based on convention and what you’ve been taught.
    Motivated primarily to stay true to the group.
    More in tune with other people’s emotions than your own.

    Both types you have use high Fe, which would explain the confusion. The difference is the Si/Ni. Now, don’t believe what stereotypes would tell you about sensors not being creative. It’s false. Sensors would just be much more in tune with their environment (internal or external) whereas Intuitives are stuck more in the ideas and what could be.

    To quote MBTIfiction again, about Si:

    Experience life as a series of memories, constantly comparing the present to the past.
    Has a traditional approach and relies on experience for decision-making.
    In tune with how physical environments affect the memory (“this smell reminds me of my childhood”)

    Si also is much more detail oriented.

    And Ni :

    Narrows the focus to a few ideas and sees them through to completion.
    Isolates potential problems.
    Focuses on long-term goals as realities.

    Ni is much more of a big-picture thinker.

     

    Anyways, hope that helps. Another good site is Psycology Junkie for studying the types a bit more.

    Uh… Yeah kinda. XNFPs tend to have an air about them that’s distinct. And I’ve gotten pretty good at typing people since I started learning about it a little over a year ago.
