• Myers-Briggs Personality Test
    489 replies, posted
So recently at my school, a group of my friends has discovered something called the Myers-Briggs Personality Test. Apparently the first girl who came upon it did so when her dad mentioned he had taken it a while back while he was enlisted in the military, which I think goes to show that this isn't exactly your kind of, "Which pokemon are you?" personality test. The test we used is a little more than 70 questions I believe, and can be taken here: [url]http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp[/url] It is usually very accurate, however there have been differences in a letter or two, which I'll talk about later. Now for a nice bowl of some interesting copy-pasta: [quote]Within each of these categories, we "prefer" to be either: Extraverted or Introverted Sensing or iNtuitive Thinking or Feeling Judging or Perceiving We all naturally use one mode of operation within each category more easily and more frequently than we use the other mode of operation. So, we are said to "prefer" one function over the other. The combination of our four "preferences" defines our personality type. Although everybody functions across the entire spectrum of the preferences, each individual has a natural preference which leans in one direction or the other within the four categories. Our Flow of Energy defines how we receive the essential part of our stimulation. Do we receive it from within ourselves (Introverted) or from external sources (Extraverted)? Is our dominant function focused externally or internally? The topic of how we Take in Information deals with our preferred method of taking in and absorbing information. Do we trust our five senses (Sensing) to take in information, or do we rely on our instincts (iNtuitive)? The third type of preference, how we prefer to Make Decisions, refers to whether we are prone to decide things based on logic and objective consideration (Thinking), or based on our personal, subjective value systems (Feeling). These first three preferences were the basis of Jung's theory of Personalty Types. Isabel Briggs Myers developed the theory of the fourth preference, which is concerned with how we deal with the external world on a Day-to-day Basis. Are we organized and purposeful, and more comfortable with scheduled, structured environments (Judging), or are we flexible and diverse, and more comfortable with open, casual environments (Perceiving)? From a theoretical perspective, we know that if our highest Extraverted function is a Decision Making function, we prefer Judging. If our highest Extraverted function is an Information Gathering function, we prefer Perceiving.[/quote] So as you can see, your personality type is based on a combination of four letters, with a possibility of 16 different personality types.

[/quote] When you take the test, you will be given percentages for each of the different areas. If any of them score low (near zero) that could mean you have a well developed alternative of those areas. Most of my information has been gathered from this website, [url]http://www.personalitypage.com/html/info.html[/url] And for detailed descriptions you can go here and click on the more button, [url]http://www.personalitypage.com/html/high-level.html[/url] Also, me and my friends thoroughly enjoy comparing the relationships associated with our personality types, specifically the, "As Lovers" section, [url]http://www.personalitypage.com/html/relationships.html[/url] I predict there will be a large number of INTJs on facepunch, or more specifically the Thinking and Judging aspects. I personally score as an ESTJ. It's important to point out that it's recently come to light that these tests are a little less accurate than I originally thought, so if you took the time to read up on all the different traits and classified yourself it would probably be more accurate than any test.
I got ESTP [img]http://puu.sh/g7Bc[/img]
You should read up your personality type on the website to see if it describes you, you should also look into ENTP because of your low score on sensing.
Type: [b]ESFP[/b] ------------- Extraverted: [b]25[/b] Sensing: [b]11[/b] Feeling: [b]25[/b] Percieving: [b]11[/b]
I remember doing this test in my Intro Psych class last semester. It's kinda dumb and shit but ah fuck let me find my results.
Yeah, normally I think these kinds of tests are pretty dumb, but after reading my profile I've got to say I honestly found it really interesting because of how well I felt it really fit my character.
Taken the test 4 different times, twice INFP and twice INTP for Psych and in high school. I don't think they match my personality at all.
INJF Introverted: 22 Intuitive: 62 Feeling: 25 Judging: 1
[QUOTE=baqua;34600143]Taken the test 4 different times, twice INFP and twice INTP for Psych and in high school. I don't think they match my personality at all.[/QUOTE] All I can say is make sure you answer the questions truthfully, how you would act not how you'd want to, and if you have low percentages check the other types that you score near.
[QUOTE=Mind Infection;34600175]INJF Introverted: 22 Intuitive: 62 Feeling: 25 Judging: 1[/QUOTE] It says I should be a counselor. wait, fuck I meant to edit not quote
Any test where you are judging yourself, is going to have horribly skewed results. This reads the same as any other personality test. People are going to get what they want and not what they are.

Fits me I believe, I often see emotions as a waste of time that cloud the results. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/l41wm.png[/IMG] My thinking score is really high. . .
INTJ Introverted: 100 Intuitive: 12 Feeling: 12 Judging: 11 I'm a.. Mastermind? [URL="http://keirsey.com/4temps/mastermind.aspx"]http://keirsey.com/4temps/mastermind.aspx[/URL] Shit, better get started on my underground lair.
I'm INFJ [quote]Beneath the quiet exterior, INFJs hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life. Those who are activists -- INFJs gravitate toward such a role -- are there for the cause, not for personal glory or political power. INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs may fantasize about getting revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. The concept of 'poetic justice' is appealing to the INFJ. "There's something rotten in Denmark." Accurately suspicious about others' motives, INFJs are not easily led. These are the people that you can rarely fool any of the time. Though affable and sympathetic to most, INFJs are selective about their friends. Such a friendship is a symbiotic bond that transcends mere words. INFJs have a knack for fluency in language and facility in communication. In addition, nonverbal sensitivity enables the INFJ to know and be known by others intimately. Writing, counseling, public service and even politics are areas where INFJs frequently find their niche.

I also got INTJ. Introverted: 89 Intuitive: 12 Thinking: 62 Judging: 22

this test is complete bullshit and is only perpeptuated because nerds on the internet are always intp or intj and everyone jerks off over being uncommon
[release]Type - INTP Introverted - 67 Intuitive - 25 Thinking - 67 Perceiving - 56[/release] Apparently total bullshit but whatever
INTP. Hrmm....
Your Type is ENFP Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving Strength of the preferences % 22 38 62 28 This thing described me perfectly. Planning on being a musician no matter what happens.
[QUOTE=Cheesemonkey;34600297]this test is complete bullshit and is only perpeptuated because nerds on the internet are always intp or intj and everyone jerks off over being uncommon[/QUOTE] It's not bullshit, these online tests are bullshit. Go to your campus office and take the $30 test.
I got ISFJ: Introverted: 22 Sensing: 1 Feeling: 25 Judging: 22
[QUOTE=Cheesemonkey;34600297]this test is complete bullshit and is only perpeptuated because nerds on the internet are always intp or intj and everyone jerks off over being uncommon[/QUOTE] A test that makes a speculation based off the honesty of an individual is hardly bullshit, the only things that come to question is the interpretation and the nature of the results. To take these results literally is idiotic. If people find that the description adheres to how people plus themselves view their personality then surely it is not completely bullshit?
[QUOTE=geel9;34600328]INTP. Hrmm....[/QUOTE] Yay, we're INTP buddies. 44 25 25 22.. Seems about right.
