Title: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: Junior on October 04, 2013, 12:24:32 PM
We've talked around this here, I think, but we've never had just a full on topic. So who are you? Take this test and be sure to click on the "Self Awareness and Personal Growth" link for a detailed breakdown: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

If you don't have time to take the test, pick one of each of these pairs.

Extroverted/Introverted
Intuitive/Sensing
Feeling/Thinking
Judging/Perceiving

I <3 Meyers-Briggs!

What a great version of the test. I retook it to get a feel for the questions and I enjoyed seeing the percentages, but there was no question that I'm an INFP through and through. :)


(http://i39.tinypic.com/29e6892.jpg)


* INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder.
* INFPs have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything. Even for the most unlovable the INFP is wont to have pity.
* Their extreme depth of feeling is often hidden, even from themselves, until circumstances evoke an impassioned response:
* ...introversion of dominant Feeling, receiving its data from extraverted intuition, must be the source of the quixotic nature of these usually gentle beings.
* Sensing is introverted and often invisible. This stealth function in the third position gives INFPs a natural inclination toward absent- mindedness and other-worldliness, however, Feeling's strong people awareness provides a balancing, mitigating effect
*INFPs can even masquerade in their ESTJ business suit, but not without expending considerable energy.



It's scary how accurate it is. :D


Thanks Junior! I had a lot of fun and I can't wait to see other's outcomes.

I got INTJ this time. I think the last time I took it, for work, I got ISTJ. Historically I've always been an I, mostly been an N. I used to be a P but the last 10 years went solidly and consistently J (though in this case it was my closest one). The T/F one seems to be the most elusive.

Introverted (67%) INtuitive (11%) Feeling (62%) Judging (33%).

I've got crappy presidents, but the rest of it is pretty right on.

"INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden" Sunshine!

"Usually self-expression comes more easily to INFJs on paper, as they tend to have strong writing skills. Since in addition they often possess a strong personal charisma, INFJs are generally well-suited to the "inspirational" professions such as teaching (especially in higher education)" On top of it!

"hey are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people -- a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious "soul mates.""

That's so you Junior! Perfect.

At least you have presidents. There have been and will be no INFP presidents! It would be a fate worse than death.



Melvil the Nurturer! When I read this about ISFJ's, I thought about you working tirelessly on your garage.

The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application. Once the task is learned, and its practical importance is understood, the ISFJ will faithfully and tirelessly carry through the task to completion. The ISFJ is extremely dependable.


Bondo, that's interesting about moving from P to J. It's worked that way for me too up to a point. I wonder if it's because the real world expects people to be scheduling, so it's a learned characteristic.

There's also something called a SWOT analysis you can do on yourself. Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats. For every strength you write an opportunity. For every weakness you write a threat. Like if you're an introvert there are strengths and weakness and related opportunities and threats. A threat to introversion could be being shouted down by big mouths. The answer to that is...don't. You just have to be aware of what the cause and effect is. You can end up being an extravert in certain circumstances just because you aren't preprared to have your fun spoilt by...shyness. Shyness is nice but shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you want to....a great man once said.

The idea of using these bodily fluids for psychological purposes makes me queasy.

Phlegmatic doesn't sound like a particularly attractive trait at all. Actually none of them do. I've seen that idea before where how one deals with rejection is a key trait. It's interesting that anyone would make sure they would reject others before they can be rejected themselves. I guess the logic of a happier world if people didn't allow themselves this behaviour is beyond us. Hey maybe this forum can be a little oasis of non rejection! Since we're all here and not going anywhere it appears. (?) Just a bunch of enabling souls.  ;D {but I'm clearly not bothered by rejection am I? :P}

The thing with these labels though, I don't think one should really take them too seriously. These four-letter acronyms, for example, might apply to me on some occasions, but on others, a change of mood would make me an INFP.

And then there are those 'Greek humor' labels. Kinda patronizing to sum down people to four individualities. I wouldn't say the described behavior is beyond me either, and certainly not one to be prejudiced against. People have their poisons, vices, and daily troubles. I wouldn't give them flak for being flawed, and certainly wouldn't simplify their troubles with four colors.

I guess what I'm saying is... being choleric isn't always bad. Given the right context, it can be justifiable and even pragmatic.
Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: DarkeningHumour on May 05, 2016, 03:08:07 AM
You cannot change type with your mood. MB personalities are about how you think and perceive the world. Change may be possible over long stretches of time, but the way you analyse outside information does not change in a matter of hours.

And for the record (this has to do with an earlier post), shyness is quite different from introversion, even if the two can often be found in the same people.

That said, not surprised to see an enormous domination by introverted types.
Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: verbALs on May 05, 2016, 04:23:47 AM
What you can do is be aware of how your strengths and weaknesses will create opportunities or threats as you go through life as I said before. The real point is that you can change and you aren't a victim of your own psychosis but you have to be aware of what threats there are and want to correct them. You aren't generalising are you? You can't change on the spot so that means you can't change at all? You can change you definitely can. The test just tells you where you are now.

Yeah shyness is a lyric in a song. Introversion can be displayed as shyness. Introversion is a complex psychological state yes with many characteristics including shyness.

And generalising is a fallacy.  ;D

Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: Paul Phoenix on May 05, 2016, 07:49:04 AM
I beg to differ. Maybe 'mood' isn't technically correct, but I've been known to radically change how I 'think' and 'perceive' the world on a whim, a kind of whim that could spontaneously change with the switch of a mood. When I'm depressed, I might be less sociable and introverted, and the answers I give in the MB quiz might be drastically different, thus making the MB result unreliable to begin with. Notice how my Extrovert and Introvert rating lies on a very marginal percentage of 1%.

For example, just some weeks ago, I was making statements about the proper standards of an anime when criticizing oldkid's review of Attack on Titan; not long after, I passionately agreed that everyone should have their own individualistic standard, and all things in art and film are subjective. Perspectives can be changed on a whim, as far as I'm aware of.

My point still stands, the MB result is very subjective.
Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: Corndog on May 05, 2016, 07:53:59 AM
I think there's a difference in changing your perspective on something and how you psychologically reach those perspectives. With potentially new input into your "personality" type it is possible to reach a new conclusion or perspective, but you came to that perspective in the same way, unless, as DH says, you have gradually changed over time.
Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: Paul Phoenix on May 05, 2016, 08:10:43 AM
Alright, let's just say for discussion's sake that the technical term of 'personality' cannot be altered. I would still enforce that the MB results can be unreliable, and definitely can be changed on a whim, even if you're being honest when answering the quiz and not intentionally trying to alter the results.

MB results are certainly unreliable, unless you are being administered the test by educated professionals in an exhaustive way (whatever that is) ; and even then, I imagine there is a margin of error. But one must remember, like IQ does not measure intelligence, MG does not measure your personality, it merely places you a scale for 4 variables.

I think there's a difference in changing your perspective on something and how you psychologically reach those perspectives.

In the past year, I've learned that MB is outdated, and it seems it doesn't have strong empirical evidence either. In the field of personality research it has been supplanted by the Big 5 framework, the 5 major personality traits being Extroversion, Openness, Conscientiousness, Agreeableness and Neuroticism. There's a lot of room in the forum for diversity, but it seems fair to assume everyone here is high in Openness. I would also bet (not bothering to look up everyone's MB results) that most people here are introverts. And I have some thoughts on how some people score in Agreeableness.

Slightly different terminology in this test. "Emotional stability" = neuroticism. "Intellect/Imagination" = openness.
Title: Re: What's your Myers-Briggs Personality type?
Post by: DarkeningHumour on September 18, 2018, 03:08:38 PM
I get the imagination part, but intellect is weird, because IQ is usually used as the sixth (or first, depending on how you look at it) personality trait.

I think all these stand ins for Neuroticism have to do with negative associations people have with the word.

Students must love having you grade their papers.

@oldkid:
You should probably tidy your room up more often.

Anyone wondering, my Agreeableness score is like Junior's, except the other way.

I am a very easy grader, yes. They still argue with me, tho!

I tidy up Portland.  I am happy to leave my room (which is really my car) alone.

My reputation for agreeableness is clearly hyped.

I don't know how you do the things you do without liking people as a given.

I need a lot of recovery time.

I first heard about MB through a corporation/employee program, so this makes sense why.


@Sandy:

Aw, thanks, DH. :)

The "Big Five" test is hilarious. It groups things into one trait where I am strongly half and strongly half. If the trait were broken cleanly into two, I would be toward the far ends of each, but since they're together I'm 50%.

Open-Mindedness: 98 - I said I really like art.
Conscientiousnes: 56 - I said I was pretty messy but very reliable. However, I'mm actually very messy (in private spaces and in personal projects) and very reliable and organized (in interpersonal relationships and important projects/at work).
Extraversion: 48 - I don't like spending a lot of time with people, and I prefer small groups, so I'm definitely an introvert, but among friends I'm very talkative, sociable, and friendly. It's clearly two entirely different categories bunched into one. Additionally, since I have a balance of private time and social time, it fits that my conscientiousness would be split between those two time periods, as well.
Agreeableness: 40 - I am generally good natured, relaxed, and courteous, but I also answered that I have 0 belief in forgiveness (I think change is important, not forgiveness) and I have a low general opinion of people (critical) so I scored lower, but I think it's more like 2 different questions: I'm agreeable to people I feel deserve it, and have a deep disdain for people that are awful. Again, seems like two different questions.
Negative Emotionality: 11 - I'm chill. Even when I have a deep disdain, I don't let it bother me. I just avoid those people, or casually enjoy brutalizing them with sarcasm. See: Agreeableness above.

Seems like a poorly defined test, to me.
