Myers-Briggs typology

I took one of these personality type tests maybe...a year ago? I was thinking it was more like 6 months ago, but this year and the last are going by so quickly that I think it was probably more like a year ago that I took it.

Anyway, when I took it then I'm thinking I got a lot more logical, driven sort of personality type as a result, but I don't remember. :D Anyway, this time I'm classified as an ISTJ. The description for the most part is amazingly accurate too!

You can take the test here. I had a little trouble with some of the questions....I needed a "depends on the situation" option. :p For instance: "Strict observance of the established rules is likely to prevent a good outcome" Well, that depends on what the rules are for. Generally-speaking I'm a law-abiding person, so I marked no, but in some situations I would agree with that. And there were a couple others like that too...however, I think that viewpoint came out in my results, so I guess it worked. :D

Here are descriptions of all the personality types.

Very interesting...I would not have pegged you for an ISTJ. But after reading the description, I think it's mostly accurate.

I'm an INTJ...of course. Wonder what your dad is? If there's a type that refuses to take tests like this because of the imprecision of the answers, that's him. :)

Yeah, I thought it was pretty accurate.

Of course. :D

Hmm...Dad might be an INFJ, ISFP, or ISTP. I'm not sure...

Beth said...

Oooh...INFJ! Of course! Right down to the messy desk. :)

That was amusing! It said I was an INFJ, and it said they were rare. Cool. I feel so special now! :D

I got INFJ, but those were some tough questions.

I'll be your token Myers-Briggs hater...

The "test" scores me as an ENFJ. [hack, ptoui]

I'd score myself as an ENTJ or ENTP.

I was scored ENFJ... Some of the description is accurate but not all. I took this before but do not remember my score. I would possibly give myself an ENTJ or ENFP, but it all depends on how you interpret the questions and the descriptions.
