Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Renowned psychometric tool based on Jung's theories on funcitonal dichotomies. Widely used throughout educational/commercial institutions.

Give it a shot; I think you'll like it.

Just to add, another MBTI-based test is here:

My type is ENTJ (Fieldmarshall) ;)

Edit: To clarify: Both tests confirmed that I am an ENTJ.... Read about ENTJ here: http://google.com/search?q=ENTJ

What's interesting is that every single MBTI-based test I've done since I was 13 (and this includes full-fledged pencil and paper hour-long deals) types me as INTJ. And that led me to believe for a long time that I was an INTJ (this is where these tests can be deleterious!), but a year or two ago I realized that I was an INTP all along, for as long as I can remember what I did (since kindergarten?). Even during those years when I was deluded into thinking that I was an INTJ, I thought and behaved as an INTP.

However, even after reading up on INTPs and reflecting on how it matchs my personality, I still typed INTJ on the online tests. Any psych majors out there would like to venture an explanation?

I find that I usually test either as an INFP or an ENFP. Somehow I managed to do one of those tests that gives you a detailed breakdown of your profile afterwards, and I was INFP, with the I/E axis almost tied around 50% each way (which would explain the occasional fluctuations).

I got EXTP, and this is the first time I've taken one of these, so I'm either dumb or confused because i couldn't find what this meant

Do you mean ESTP?

Also try a google search for "ESTP" or "ESTP profile".

Well I was sure it said EXTP, but thanks Kong. I was suprised at how much that nailed me, how sometimes Im really introverted when im by myself or people I dont know, but when im with my friends I say whatever I feel. Im also competitive, but the going for the jugular comment was a little extreme

From the same site Kong Wen posted:

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,

Fear me! :twisted:

this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists.

The first time I have my profession predicted! Yay! hehehe...

Anyone else who happens to be INTP should check out the INTP forum (don't worry, I'm not obsessed enough to join it). Here is a very thorough profile of the INTP (also recommended by the INTP forum). Since INTPs are supposed to have a warped sense of humour, and the author of that article is an INTP himself, he's got a page of MBTI jokes here. :shock:

Are we supposed to discuss the validity and/or usefulness of these types of personality test or just ... post our results? Might do better in the Test and Quizzes thread somewhere in the Pub forum. :?

Just to be on topic, I'm INTP.
