Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - ResidentRobot - 02-26-2013 05:31 PM

ENTJ
Extravert(22%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(38%) Judging(44%)

You have slight preference of Extraversion over Introversion (22%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (38%)
You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (44%)


The long description of ENTJ Describes me to a T.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Trar - 06-15-2013 01:58 AM

INTP
Introvert(33%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(1%) Perceiving(22)%

You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (33%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have slight preference of Perceiving over Judging (22%)

The long description pegs me pretty well too.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - tangled - 06-17-2013 09:37 PM

INFP

Introvert(100%) iNtuitive(38%) Feeling(38%) Perceiving(78)%

You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (100%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
You have strong preference of Perceiving over Judging (78%)

I always get INFP when I take this test no matter where it's from and I think it's pretty accurate.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - brainiac3397 - 06-18-2013 07:04 AM

I think "strong preference" for 100% is an understatement. Biggrin


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Miab419 - 06-18-2013 03:21 PM

INTP for me...
89% introverted
12% intuitive
25% thinking
11% perceiving


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Omniscient - 07-05-2013 01:48 PM

I got INTJ:

Quote:INTJ

Introvert(89%) iNtuitive(75%) Thinking(100%) Judging(11%)

You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (75%)
You have strong preference of Thinking over Feeling (100%)
You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)

Read a short description of INTJ on wikipedia. Seems very accurate.


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Subb - 07-05-2013 03:02 PM

I'm gonna list famous people in the 3 most popular categories. Just for the hell of it.

INTP:
Albert Einstein.
Richard Dawkins.
Charles Darwin.

INFP:
John Lennon
George Orwell
Vincent Van Gogh

INTJ:

Karl Marx
Friedrich Nietzche
Stephen Hawking

Interesting, I'm INTP, but my aspirations are shared with INFP people....


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - brainiac3397 - 07-05-2013 03:23 PM

It happens. Though I might have one specific result, I share traits with every other IN--.


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Night - 07-05-2013 10:30 PM

This is what I got last time I took this. I figure since my birthday is soon I'd take the test again.

INFP

You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (44%)

And this is what I got this time.

Quote:INTP

You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (33%)

So If I'm understand this correctly I'm just as introverted. I've become more sensing. Becoming more thinking. Which may be a positive thing, The way I'm understanding this I'm starting to think about my actions more and not let feelings get the better of me? And I've become more judgmental. Which may be true. I'm kind of a bitch.

I also took a look at the famous people sharing my type;
Quote: David Hilbert, a German mathematician
James Clerk Maxwell, a physicist and mathematician
Emmy Noether, a German mathematician
Andrey Sakharov, a nuclear physicist and human rights activist
Makes sense actually since I've been taking more interest in maths and physics and stuffs.

You're right. Looking back at my results, there is barely any preference between F and T. So my result is best decscribed as IN-P


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Thought Criminal - 07-06-2013 01:59 PM

Wow, I haven't taken it in a while but I just did it again and pulled ENTP.
The last 5 times I always got INTP. That's an interesting change. I am a whole lot more social than I used to be though so I suppose that makes sense.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - SoulRiser - 07-06-2013 09:03 PM

Laugh

Okay, mine's different again:

Quote:INTJ
Introvert(89%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(1%) Judging(1%)
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (1%)

I am rather different now, so I guess it makes sense.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Dead - 07-07-2013 01:49 AM

ISFP
Introvert(89%) Sensing(50%) Feeling(25%) Perceiving(56)%
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition (50%)
You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (25%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (56%)


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Unknown-Creation - 10-02-2013 09:26 AM

I've taken the MBTI tests a few times. I consistently end up being classified as an INTJ:

Quote:You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have strong preference of Intuition over Sensing (88%)
You have distinctive preference of Thinking over Feeling (62%)
You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)

I always take tests like with with a grain of salt. MBTI can be useful in understanding some cognitive functions and tendencies, but no one necessarily fits into a proverbial box.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Ky - 10-02-2013 10:22 AM

I've devolved into IS??.

I'm almost completely borderline when it comes to Thinking vs Feeling and Judging vs Perceiving now. I've become more sensitive and less intuitive over time, and I am 100% introverted. This is an indication that I might need to regain some lost intuition, and take a more definitive stance on my inner moral issues.

...And I guess I should get out more...


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - youcantchangeme - 10-18-2013 09:50 AM

Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - brainiac3397 - 10-18-2013 12:32 PM

I might have grown a tad bit more extrovert.

Been watching The Office(US) and for some reason have seen an increase in my social activity(as in being more active rather than passive)

Course it's not like it wasn't something I was moving towards.

Never mind, I'm back at INFP, where I started. Smile


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Ky - 01-05-2014 11:52 AM

Still INFP. The good news is that I'm getting ever so slightly more extroverted. (Originally I was 100% introverted, and now look!)

INFP
Introvert(89%) iNtuitive(38%) Feeling(38%) Perceiving(67)%

RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - brainiac3397 - 01-05-2014 04:52 PM

Ive recently decided that Ive evolved into a mental state where my personality is fluid and variable, capable of being consciously alterated.

Makes more sense...


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Ky - 01-09-2014 07:03 AM

Took the test again, Intuition and Feeling jumped from 38 to 62, but aside from that, no change. Definitely still INFP.


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Trar - 04-06-2014 04:45 AM

Took it again, still INTP. I'm alright with that. 'Course, I'll take it with a grain of salt, seeing as it's a free online version of a test based off a science I'm still reasonably sure is in its 'dark age', so to speak.


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - The Maddigg - 05-08-2014 01:04 AM

I got ISTJ
Introvert(89%) Sensing(12%) Thinking(12%) Judging(1%)
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)
You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (1%)

However, i read the description of the ISTJ and almost NOTHING fits me Laugh
But seeing:
Quote:"Because you appear to have marginal or no (1%) preference of Judging over Perceiving, characteristics of more than one personality type may apply to you: ISTJ and ISTP."
made me read the ISTP description also, and that one describes me much more accurately.


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - James Comey - 05-27-2014 05:41 AM

Heh, I took the test again, in May. I'm still INFP, with:

*You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (33%)
*You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
*You have distinct preference of Feeling over Thinking (62%)
*You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (44%)

Bit late, but: "Sensing" is not "sensitive" and the MBTI is not an aptitude test. You didn't get worse at intuition, and getting a result on the S end is not devolving, as much as some people like to see Sensors as somehow simpleminded.

It's really not a big deal if your results vary from time to time based on your mood and especially recent thoughts of how you would like to be or to see yourself, if you aren't answering using pure experience. As far as the results of the MBTI can be trusted, they should be taken as the average over time, not as isolated tests that could have been influenced by all sorts of things.

This is one of the problems with the axes on the MBTI -- this bimodal representation of a normally distributed trait. The distribution of introversion vs. extraversion should look like a bell curve; there shouldn't be two peaks with a split right down the middle to where being just a bit on one side or the other changes everything.

As an aside, Jung felt that it wasn't a good thing to be extreme in any of these traits. I'll agree with him and say that having results that are seemingly wildly inconsistent but scattered around the center of each axis, working as we are with this flawed system, should be seen as a success (and I use that word lightly; again, this is not a skills evaluation).


Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - Ky - 05-27-2014 06:15 AM

I figured that out a long time ago. My average over time is INFP, and that makes sense given Jung's cognitive functions.

For a typical INFP, the hierarchy would look as follows: Fi > Ne > Si > Te. (There are varying models, and I left out the shadow functions.) I gather information about myself through sensing, but my ability to demonstrate it in introverted feeling is greater; on the other hand, I gather information about the world through intuition, which is somewhat stronger than my ability to process it through extraverted thinking. Therefore, even if I am not an INFP, I have a lot in common with one.

Bimodal distribution is a good means of pinpointing which functions are your strongest (but is estimated to work only 50% of the time), but what type you really are is dependent entirely on your preference for cognitive functions.

As another side note, I'll have to disagree with Jung on that one; an extreme preference for one or more of the cognitive functions indicates a higher likelihood of above-average strength in said function(s). Considering everyone has weaknesses, it would be preferable to have at least one obvious strength.


RE: Jung/Briggs-Meyers Test - vonunov - 05-27-2014 06:27 AM

Took it again for shits and grins and I got INFP 78% 38% 50% 67%. Most times in the past I would get INTP, sometimes INFP, less often ISTP.

Typealyzer of my last post says INTP (using http://bpaste.net/raw/OR20J9RLryAd1eYsyAEJ/ )

It seems to make sense that having an extreme preference indicates strength in that area, but the idea is that the MBTI is to measure preference, not particularly strength, and that it's not necessarily a good thing to have an extreme preference (or strength) in one area to the neglect of another. One example of the problems arising from thinking of the MBTI as measuring strengths is someone telling me that I'm "not a very strong intuitive", which I think pretty badly misapplies the principles of the whole thing. It checks primary preferences, what we turn to first, not really what we're capable of. This really just seems like another manifestation of the problem of seeing axes instead of functions, which you seem to understand, so all this isn't directed at you, mind.

ESTJ. Whatever that means.

The "Whatever that means" fits your type perfectly - ESTJs and similar types are often thought to be least likely to see the validity of this test, likely due to a preference for concrete data or substantiated fact.

Reading through the sites that explain that personality describe me quite well I guess. I just find peace in order and stability.

Holy shit. I guess this test does work. Describes me well. Too well, I say. [Image: OzfsGbg.gif]
