Hmm. I'd guess INTP, at least when he's got his administrative hat on.

"INTPs are pensive, analytical folks. They may venture so deeply into thought as to seem detached, and often actually are oblivious to the world around them.

Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off. While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists. "*

Cool, Tabitha! That's the best description I've heard.

I split almost evenly between INTP and INTJ, depending on the test (and my mood, I guess). And I am soooo like that. Except that I only correct myself, of course. :)

I just took the test, and it turns out that I am, according to the results, an ENFJ. I remember I took this at work several years ago, and I can't remember the results but I THINK it was quite different. Have I changed that much? hmmm.. I think I was an INTP or something like that.

What are you, amy?

Yeah...these are fun to do. Online I always (100% of the time) get ISTJ. I seem to be on more the extreme side of that. I'll be taking the test "officially" in Dec. for a class at work. They want to use the different personality types to teach us how to work with people who have different personalities than our own. I'll know then if my online results match up to the official paper version.

Oh my....I used to be an ESTJ, and now I'm an INFP! Wow have I changed. What an effect grad school and my training have had. And probably therapy.

Or...I'm finally figuring out who I am and that it's okay to be me? (Have I always really been an INFP?) I love how the INFP is characterized: "The Portrait of the Healer Idealist" That sure sounds like me lately.

Very interesting...thanks for posting this, Tamar. I always assumed I was pretty much the same as the last time I took it before I got married.

I wish I had posted it (it wasn't me)! I'm interested, though. I've never taken an 'official' test, though I've taken a few online and in books. I almost always come out ENFP, although the E for me isn't very strong, and I often wonder if Id turn out INFP in a more complex test.

Im sure Im really midway between E and I, with E dominating when Im in a test-taking frame of mind

Its interesting to think it can change. I always thought of these things as fixed. But on the other hand, I have a hard time believing anythings really fixed.!

Hi there GG! I was resisting replying since it's so non-administrative, but I see someone helpfully moved this all over to Social. So Hi how are you?

My thing with those categories is I seem to change quite a bit over time or in different situations. So I can be INTP at work, but something totally different at home. Or I'll feel INTP one week, then something else another. So I can never figure out which one is a good fit.

I've always tested INFJ or INFP; the J/P thing is right on the edge, and in fact it turns out that the order of the letters is the same as the descending order of the strength of the result for me (I usually pick every "I" response).

What it all really means... I don't know.

hi j! always good hearing from you!

> I just took the test, and it turns out that I am, according to the results, an ENFJ. I remember I took this at work several years ago, and I can't remember the results but I THINK it was quite different. Have I changed that much? hmmm.. I think I was an INTP or something like that.

the results aren't always accurate. and can also be inaccurate if you were in a certain mood when taking the test. and some ppl's type changes a bit over time. also sometimes ppl can desire to be a certain type, and affect their results that way, especially if they are familiar with the test and personality types. i never rely on what a person tells me their type is...but like to see if it truly fits them.

ENFJ definitely sounds right for you..i think you might be a rarity here?:) i'm not sure if there are many of those on social...there are lots of introverts i think. so it's nice having you here.

> What are you, amy?

oh gosh. i'm pretty close to or at the borderline on most traits, except for the intuitive one. however i am definitely intuitive (as opposed to sensory) dominant. so, kind of an XNXX.

but if i *had* to pick *one* right now, i'd probably say INFP. (i used to be a more solid thinker also, but something has been compelling me to try to become more of a feeler type..be more compassionate and feeling. through my attempt at changing to a dominant 'feeler', i could actually feel the switch in myself from dominant thinking to feeling, it was strange..now i feel more like i'm fulfilling my destiny lol. anyway, that's probably more info than you would have liked lol.:-))

take care,:)

I've tried to be more of an F also, and I've improved in those traits, but I think my destiny is still T. At least I'm more accepting of my T-nature now. For a while I was sort of ashamed to be T.

yes, do be accepting of yourself tab....you are fine just the way you are...i felt something tugging at me telling me i wasn't fulfilling my mission on earth..so i tried to change..but i am so appreciative of all the types and their differences...i actually feel like i'm reverting more back to the T side lately, perhaps in response to my depression/stress. (i hope my posts are coming across as cold or insensitive :) i'm truly sorry if i have.)

take care tab, :)

My husband is a vulcan. He tested 20 to 0 thinking versus feeling.

And that is a problem for our marriage, unfortunately. :(

But he's working on it.

Well, I should also say that having a balance between us of thinking versus feeling has its good points, too. He's great at problem-solving and looking at the rational and practical side of things.

We need all kinds in this world.

Just took the test at this website (thanks to alesta). I haven't taken their version before. Here are my results:

ISTJ

Introverted - 89
Sensing - 25
Thinking - 88
Judging - 89

These numbers show exactly why I drive SOOOOO many people crazy. hahahahaha!!!!! :-P

Did anyone else take the test from this website? I'd love to see your scores too!

 

INTJ - Exact match, more or less. (nm)
