INFJ

I think this poll might not be recording all the INFJs, as the letters are out of order. I originally scanned through and didn't think it was there. Could this be fixed? It's an even more rare type than all you INTX (according to Wikipedia, it's the counterpart to INTJ). It'd be nice to get the most accurate reading.

INTP
(The T was 1%, but I looked at every question closely and saw where it was repeating itself, so I answered the same for those, where instinctively I'd have answered differently. So add more to my T score tyvm)

I'm ENFP, which is what I'd guessed when looking over the rough guide to personality types, and what the test told me.

EDIT: I'm a little surprised by the analysis page for the personality type, though... it's listed most of the careers I'd be interested in as "not favourable"... I don't think I like this test :(

Historically I've been INTJ. Then I drifted to borderline INTJ/INTP (literally on the borderline one question's difference in either direction. These days I'm drifting towards the INTJ/INTP/INFJ/INFP junction depending on mood.

What does it mean that trying to take these tests suddeny stressed me out too much to take them?

I used to get INTP most of the time. I've run the gammut. Right now from looking at the first main page I thought I was I N and then 50/50 on F or T, and likely P, with a possiblitity of being J.

I just don't know how to honestly answer the questions, I feel like I'm usually being either pessemistic with a choice or I'm putting down how I wish I was and not how I am with the opposite choice.

None of it matters. Don't stress out about it. These test are hardly accurate and are designed to be vague. No four letters can tell you who you are.

Sounds like I'm an INTP; and seems like it is the norm around here. I'm not special :cry:*

Very strong I, mild N, T and P.
Once it gave me INFP with a very weak "F". But the description for INTP fits me much better. Logical-minded, solitary, reflective.
Also
Her Internettian Majesty Wikipedia wrote:Self-image: The Rationals' self-esteem is rooted in their ingenuity; their self-respect in their autonomy; and their self-confidence in their resoluteness.

Values: Rationals appear calm even in times of turmoil. They achieve this state through an intense concentration of effort rather than through cold-heartedness. They trust reason and strive for achievement. They are knowledge-seekers who aspire to technical wizardry, and so are pleased when others defer to their expertise.

Social roles: In romantic relationships, Rationals want a mindmate with whom they can discuss the topics that interest them, which are usually abstract or theoretical. As parents, they encourage their children to become self-reliant individuals capable of thinking for themselves. In their professional and social lives, Rationals are visionary leaders, developing and consolidating coherent long-term plans.


Yeah, this is pretty much me, and it's not half bad^^
Also, I was wondering, is there a thread which correlates one's Myers-Briggs Type with the social and especially the sentimental life?
Just curious :D wanna know if there's a sensible difference between INTP, INTJ and other types about relationships with the opposite sex.
I also wonder if there is a correlation with the I.Q....

INTP here, though I've been pegged as ENTP in a few previous takings of the test.

I'm just amused at the massive influx of INTP/INTJ on the fora relative to the normal population.

I think that this is interesting too. I guess xkcd/this community attracts a certain type of person.

Also notice the total lack (so far) of ESFJ (Extroversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgment). While there are countless numbers on the internet, very few of them end up here.

I find that the Myers-briggs is... well, broken. I have taken it about 5-6 times, and I got a different result every time... wtf?

Way to many of the questions are of the type where you have to lie if you want to get the correct result.

I mean, take this as an example: (which isn't in the mb test) "Do you play any instrument?". Now, in a test, such a question might be used to figure out if you like music. But what about all the people who plays an instrument only because their parents forced them? And what about people who loves to listen to music but doesn't make their own? If you make music, but only on your computer, is the computer supposed to count as an instrument?

MB is full of these. Either I answer correctly, and I get really weird results, or I lie by answering what you think the test wants to show instead of what the questions really ask. It doesn't matter if your test is perfect in any other way if you can't answer it correctly!

(I did vote INTP, since I think I have gotten that previously and it's not that wrong of a description of me. Interestingly, by far that seems to be the most common variant on this forum).

Took the test linked in the OP, got INFP, 22, 12, 38, 33. I linked the TypeLogic profile because I've always liked their type relationship grid and their descriptions.

Velict wrote:It is amusing, though, to look at the poll results. I wonder what sort of people are attracted to a comic about mathematics and programming?

People with Primary or Secondary Thinking and Intuition traits, where the dominant one is Introverted? I have no idea what that means but it's the correlation I can drag up from TypeLogic's Functional Analysis page and the spikes in the poll.

Meyers-Briggs is nice in someways and bad in others. Especially when you're close to the middle.
Last test I took:
E = 10 I = 12
S = 2 N = 20
F 10 T = 14
J = 6 P = 16

Or something like that...

I'm INTP based on professional testing. I've taken some online tests and gotten INTP most of the time but occasionally INTJ.

What I found interesting when I was originally tested is that the psychologist said that you could get a rough idea of how people would get along by looking at the Myers-Briggs matrix. People who are more than two columns and/or two rows apart will have a slightly more difficult time getting along. The farther apart you are, the harder it is. This was helpful since my mother and I had to get counselling since we had a lot of trouble getting along; we were 3 columns and 2 rows apart (she's ESTJ). (If you look at the link for the Myers-Briggs test that was posted on the front page and scroll down a bit, you'll see this matrix)

I like these tests.

They explain that there are exactly 16 kinds of people. This is clearly superior to traditional western horoscopes, which only describe 13 kinds of people.

Adding in the "X" (for the middle) improves it even more -- 81 kinds of people!

Clearly sufficient to describe the essence of everyone's personality in the world.

(INTP, occasionally scoring XNXP here).

Apparently there is another one that actually tried to do this robustly -- called big 5 or something?

I got INTJ on the suggested test in the OP, but the Keirsey test pegged me as INTP. After reading both descriptions, and my own observations of INTPs and INTJs, I'm very sure I'm an INTP. Not to mention people have told me that INTP fits me precisely.
The Keirsey forum has this interesting thread

I knew there had to be a reason I loved this forum. Similar people, and a more fitting version of socializing. Perfect.

INFP, although I rely on logic as much as or more than just feelings. I really hate how it's all YES/NO. There was a bunch of things that were "maybe", "sometimes", or "neither".

The site also uses 90's era animated gifs. Credibility just dropped like 30%, IMO.

I seriously oscillate between T/F and J/P, partially dependent on environmental stimuli. So this test does not classify me nicely into a sub-category.
