Each of the letters has only one paired letter, and they each indicate temperamental qualities like introversion/extroversion, thinking/feeling, etc.... So it wouldn't be surprizing that someone nearer to the middle of the scale between these poles could have letters flip around when testing again. Probably, a slightly different mood in an ambivert could have them flipping from I to E (introverstion to extroversion), for example. However, many people are way out on the right or left end of the scale, rather than the middle, on various items. Some people are solidly introverted or extroverted and would never flip flop in the test.

I'm also an INFP, which is really quite uncommon -- I think we're only 1-2% of the general population. My boyfriend is also an INFP!

Keirsey's system is much like the Myers-Briggs. Here's how he talks about the INFP.:

I'm not even particularly Introverted, either, and that's the letter that came up the same both times.

The thing is, I have a very loud speaking voice and when I'm in a social situation, I tend to act more withdrawn than I feel. I have been singled out while in a noisy crowd for being "the loud one" and I'm sick and tired of that so I tend to keep to myself more.

I don't think only certain MBTI types can be in poly relationships, but I think the MBTI is an important indicator of how people will respond and handle the relationship and whatever problems come up.

I happen to be an INTJ, and very proud of that. ;-) We're pretty rare. The man in our quad is an ISFJ, so we are on the same wavelength fairly regularly. Sometimes he gets a bit more hung up on facts and evidence when I can grant assumptions a bit more easily (S/N), and he is definitely more of an emotional arguer than a logical one (F/T), and that's how our differences crop up.

Then there's the other half, with the complimentary personality type:

My lady love, as well as the third (whom I'm not in a relationship with) are both ENFP. They need constant social interaction, which means neither actually deals that great with the triad, because if either spends time with the man of their life, the other feels left out, bored, etc. I'm a bit nervous to be the only T in the house!

ISTJs are often called inspectors. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. Punctuality is a watchword of the ISTJ. The secretary, clerk, or business(wo)man by whom others set their clocks is likely to be an ISTJ.

As do other Introverted Thinkers, ISTJs often give the initial impression of being aloof and perhaps somewhat cold. Effusive expression of emotional warmth is not something that ISTJs do without considerable energy loss.

ISTJs are most at home with "just the facts, Ma'am." They seem to perform at highest efficiency when employing a step-by-step approach. Once a new procedure has proven itself (i.e., has been shown "to work,") the ISTJ can be depended upon to carry it through, even at the expense of their own health.

ISTJs are easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments. But they usually keep their feelings to themselves unless they are asked. And when asked, they don't mince words. Truth wins out over tact. The grim determination of the ISTJ vindicates itself in officiation of sports events, judiciary functions, or an other situation which requires making tough calls and sticking to them.

His SJ orientation draws the ISTJ into the service of established institutions. Home, social clubs, government, schools, the military, churches -- these are the bastions of the SJ. "We've always done it this way" is often reason enough for many ISTJs. Threats to time-honored traditions or established organizations (e.g., a "run" on the bank) are the undoing of SJs, and are to be fought at all costs.

I'm pretty sure that last paragraph is not very poly in nature! Funny thing is I am in the military, respect the catholic church despite being non-practicing, and tend to be very punctual.

This really isn't a surprise.

Eeeeek! I'm obviously quite the opposite of this one aspect!

Default Enfj

I was tested by a licensed evaluator about 2 years ago and came up ENFJ. It was pretty dead on, and gave me much cause to laugh at myself. I refer to the folder from time to time when I am sorting something out, and always find a clarity to my own motives that I wasn't able to see just thinking about where I stand in the situation emotionally.
