What's your personality type?


#1

I wanted to know everybody’s MBTI type. The MBTI, or the Myer’s-Briggs Type Indicator, it a comprehensive way to classify your way of thinking. It really helps you to understand yourself, and others.

There are 4 main types:

  • Idealists
  • Rationals
  • Guardians
  • Artisans

Your overall type is sixteen 4-letter combinations. You are either an introvert or an extrovert. You may make decisions based on your feelings, or on your intuition. You either rely on your thinking, or on your senses. And last of all, you either judge, or perceive.

The sixteen personality types are as follows:
ISFP
ISFJ
ESFP
ESFJ
INFP
INFJ
ENFP
ENFJ
INTP
INTJ
ENTP
ENTJ
ISTP
ISTJ
ESTP
ESTJ

Remember, nobody falls perfectly into a single type. Additionally, all types are equal, and no single type is superior.

[You can determine your type here][1]
[1]: Personality test based on C. Jung and I. Briggs Myers type theory

If anyone cares to know, here are my results:

Introvert(100%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(88%) Perceiving(27%)
You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (100%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have distinctive preference of Thinking over Feeling (88%)
You have slight preference of Perceiving over Judging (27%)

ENFJ!

So, I took the test. Some of the questions I felt kind of repeated previous ones, and I struggled to answer ones involving a job being 15, so I took the idea of new classes at school with new people as a basis for that answer. Anyway, my score!

Extravert(56%) iNtuitive(12%) Feeling(38%) Judging(33%)

  • You have moderate preference of Extraversion over Introversion (56%)
  • You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
  • You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (33%)

What’s this for by the way? Just out of interest, or do we have a psychologist in the house? :slight_smile:


#3

Well, mainly out of interest. Once you know a lot about it, it’s really fun to try to convince others to take the test, and see if you can guess their type.

As far as job-related questions go, just try to compare it to a school environment. It’s not that different.


#4

ENFP
Extravert(44%) iNtuitive(38%) Feeling(12%) Perceiving(33)%
You have moderate preference of Extraversion over Introversion (44%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (33%)

I thought I would have scored more extreme in preference in some categories, I guess I’m more middle of the road than I thought.


#5

INTJ
Introvert(44%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(75%) Judging(11%)
You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (44%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have distinctive preference of Thinking over Feeling (75%)
You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)

That’s how I scored. Although I would like to think that I am more perceptive than judgmental.


#6

At 11% it could just be a testing error. If you think you are a perceiver, you probably are.

I’m an INTP too. :slight_smile:


#7

And (what a coincidence!) neither of us like the Obama/Biden pair! Amazing!


#8

ISTJ
Introvert(33%) Sensing(12%) Thinking(50%) Judging(56%)
You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (33%)
You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (50%)
You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (56%)

I’m down with that. The description provided of ISTJ’s basically sums up how I act at work.


#9

I would agree with the testing error concept. Many of the questions could have gone either way for me. I think I am more of an ENTP than my calculated ENFP.


#10

Well, if you’re thinking about this in the first place, then it’s probable that you’re a thinker! Analyzing results is, after all, one of the key aspects of being as such.


#11

I N T J

Introvert…

quickly looks up definition

…I like it

btw, if we’re doing personality checks, check this one out!


#12

Im an ENTP according to the website except you have to be fourteen and I’m below


#13

INTJ
Introvert(33%) iNtuitive(12%) Thinking(1%) Judging(11%)

You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (33%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)

I guess me and @ManOfRet are the same… :wink:

Edit: I also did the “What pokemon are you?” test…


#14

I always considered myself more of an INTP than an INTJ, but I did get INTJ. But the thing is, for a question like, “You value justice higher than mercy”, my answer of “No” doesn’t even quite cover it, as I don’t value justice at all, for its own sake.

Also I would have thought my perceived preference of thinking over feeling would be more present. I still think those things are just not perfectly caught by the test, although there might yet be something to the test. I do see the “judging” thing a bit I guess, as I can be kinda critical at times. Ah well.

Introvert(78%) iNtuitive(62%) Thinking(1%) Judging(67%)
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%)
You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (62%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have distinctive preference of Judging over Perceiving (67%)

Also,

In this case I agree except with the “always there for [friends]” thing.


#15

Well a lot of criticism has been levelled at these sorts of things, it’s important to remember that they shouldn’t be understood as providing a definitive understanding of anything and everything (as much as they might claim to provide it).


#16

Sure, that’s true, of course. But on the other hand, it’s easy to get the wrong idea about yourself if the only source you ever use to think about it is your own feelings and thoughts. Sometimes, you’re just kind of different than you thought you were. I’ve experienced that a couple of times. So I think there’s value in taking such a test, with all its imperfections, and taking it seriously to the right extent – no more, no less – and also value in adding your own thoughts to where you think it may have gone wrong. At any rate… yes, you’re right.


#17

Oh definitely, if your growth is fuelled only by your own thoughts then that can be a rather dangerous thing as well.

I’ve met a couple of people who place their entire unwavering confidence in these sorts of tests believing that they are solid truths, My biggest gripe is that I don’t believe it’s possible to reduce human behaviour etc. into a certain amount of types.

It is obviously good to assess yourself but I personally believe that reflecting upon yourself through feedback or interactions and discussions you have had with others and things you have read are more useful than these sorts of tests - having said that I imagine this was initially started as a little bit of fun or something.


#18

I agree with this in principle, but my point of view on this is the same as my point of view on labels. People sometimes say labels (like those about a person’s sexuality or certain disorders and such) are overly simplistic and can’t describe a person and therefore they often go to “I hate labels”. I agree with the first, but I don’t hate labels – I think they’re a convenient starting point to simplify a person’s description. It’s just that if you want to describe a person totally, you’d have to add several footnotes and amendments, like “Bisexual but usually falls for guys” or “Not quite autistic but has some of the characteristics” (both of which describe me). That would take a lot longer to describe without those labels. I feel similarly about such tests – they’re kind of a framework, not a perfect division of all types of people.

I agree with your last paragraph as well.

Also: looks I am a Bulbasaur.

I’d like to see @SteveAdamo and @Geoffers747’s results from this… maybe it’ll give us an insight into why @SteveAdamo loves closing our topics… :wink:
