MBTI Personality Test
    #3185478 - 09/27/04 09:14 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Ahh.  The Myers-Briggs test was finally mentioned in  this thread.  I love this personality test.  It's not like other tests you find on the internet that tell you "What color of the rainbow am I?"  This is a great tool in learning more about yourself and the people around you.

The real test costs money and it much more in depth, but I find that this test does quite nicely: http://similarminds.com/myers-briggs-jung.html 

This is an excellent site explaining what each letter means: http://www.geocities.com/lifexplore/mbintro.htm

You can find descriptions of each type at these sites:

I am an INFP.  What are you?

Very strongly an INTP :wink:

PS: there are many free tests around the net, I'll try and find a good one.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

> Very strongly an INTP

Something like only 9% to 11% of the population is INTP
Around 90% to 95% of all computer science majors are INTP

Thanks, Trendal.  That's a good test, too!  :grin:

Ahhh, I knew you guys would be N's.  Only 25% of the population are N's and 75% are S's.

I agree with the descriptions of the types on that site... However, I find their descriptions of intertype relations to be off. I rarely agree with them!

From what I've read, it's closer to 1%...you may be thinking of NT types in general, which make up about 5-10% of the population.


Though I'm quite sure you are correct about the comp sci majors being almost all INTP. Apparently this frame of mind gives us an advantage with logic systems :smirk:

"Introverted (I) 52.78% Extroverted (E) 47.22%
Intuitive (N) 54.55% Sensing (S) 45.45%
Thinking (T) 78.13% Feeling (F) 21.88%
Perceiving (P) 64.86% Judging (J) 35.14%"

I agree with this, except I'm not totally sure what the N/S bit means. I mean, I know what "intuitive" and "sensing" mean, but in this context? Can anyone clarify that for me?

From the site that I linked...

Sensors:
Focused on the physical world
Live by their five senses
Concrete
Interested in "what is"
Realistic
Practical
Understands details, particulars
Only see the obvious
Down to earth
Use words literally
Live in the present
Needs evidence and facts
Traditional and simple
Banker, police, athlete, surgeon, pilot, cashier
Sees the trees instead of forest

Intuitives:
Focused on the mental or spiritual world
Use a "sixth sense", "hunch", and "gut feeling"
Abstract
Interested in "what can be"
Idealistic
Imaginative
Understands meaning, generalities
Look beyond the surface
Head in clouds, deep
Use metaphors, analogies, hidden meanings
Live in the future
Speculative and theoretical
Original and complex
Artist, scientist, poet, mystic, social reformer, philosopher
Sees the forest instead of trees


You have a pretty weak N, so you may drift between being a Sensor and an Intuitive type. You can get a better idea of which one you really are by reading descriptions on the two types INTP and ISTP and figuring out which fits you better.

Oops, missed that quite obvious link, sorry :smile:

The test Trendal linked to has quite different scores for me...

"Your Type is
ENTP
Extroverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving
Strength of the preferences % 
E:22 N:89 T:33 P:44"

slightly expressed extrovert

very expressed intuitive personality

moderately expressed thinking personality

moderately expressed perceiving personality

But this test had just "yes/no" rather than 5-point scale. 

I can't tell whether I'm an "I" or an "E", I love social contact and I love being on my own, they occupy equally prominent places in my psyche.  I need both to function at my full potential.

I just did this test for a class recently, how coincidental that this thread pops up. I tested as an INTJ: http://www.personalitypage.com/INTJ.html

I found a lot of value in this test, learned a ton about myself. Good shit!

Only one letter off!

So what's it like using your emotion to make decisions instead of logic? I must admit I have a rather lackluster experience when it comes to emotional decision making (which may be part of the definition of INTP) :smirk:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
