Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Posted: August 4, 2010 by gwopdn in wondering why we have to choose a Category

Click here to take the online test – Take the test and comment with your results!!

Mr. Kdawgz mentioned this test so I did it this afternoon. (I actually did it years ago, but forgot my result.)

I turned out to be an INTJ, Rational – Mastermind. lol We both agreed that the personality type describes me very well  (A lot better than horoscope does)

INTJs are analytical problem-solvers, eager to improve systems and processes with their innovative ideas. INTJs have a talent for seeing possibilities for improvement, whether at work, at home, or in themselves. They have a hunger for knowledge and strive to constantly increase their competence; often INTJs are perfectionists with extremely high standards of performance for themselves and others. They may not want to bother with people who they do not perceive to be their intellectual equals.

 

Type description by D. Keirsey – describes me so incredibly well LOL

Analysis by Marina Margaret Heiss

This analysis is also accurate in many ways. I agree with almost every single word.
I really like its introduction:

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age.

The following part couldn’t be more true:

Anyone considered to be “slacking,” including superiors, will lose their respect — and will generally be made aware of this; INTJs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. On the other hand, they do tend to be scrupulous and even-handed about recognizing the individual contributions that have gone into a project, and have a gift for seizing opportunities which others might not even notice.

Btw. The romantic relationship analysis (unfortunately) fits me as well.  lol

A blog article by another INTJ – I randomly came across this blog just a few moments ago and found astonishing similarities between the blogger and me.

Note that according to the MBTI Mannul, 3rd Edition, INTJ turned out to be the most rare personality type among US females (0.8% of all female population). And Kelvin happens to be an INFJ, the most rare type for male (1.3% of all male). The probability of us meeting and getting to know each other is somewhere close to 0.8% times 1.3%. Interesting =)

    Now now…don’t draw any conclusions with that statistic. It’s just a statistic!

  2. lol I was reading the criticism of this personality type system! Well, I think it describes a few types of people reasonably, but for some types the descriptions are very general.
    My mom did the test too, she’s an opposite SF lol

      *sigh* The outdated Myers-Briggs test. Although MB tests (categorical format) are still prevalent in industry, the Big Five Model (scalar format) is argued to be a more accurate description of each individual. Well, arguments fly all directions when it comes to personality tests anyways. Anyhow, I got INFJ this time. Usually I get either INFJ or ENFJ. I realized over the years, most of my friends are either rationalists or idealists that share the intuitive factor. I realized sensory types are not that quick at picking up jokes, so yeah….

        That’s true, big five is more accurate.

        You do not feel nervous in social situations, and have a good impression of what others think of you, however you do not experience strong, irresistible cravings and consequently do not find yourself tempted to overindulge. You tend to feel overwhelmed by, and therefore actively avoid, large crowds. You often need privacy and time for yourself. You tend not to express your emotions openly and are sometimes not even aware of your own feelings. You dislike confrontations and are perfectly willing to compromise or to deny your own needs in order to get along with others, however you feel superior to those around you and sometimes tend to be seen as arrogant by other people. You strive hard to achieve excellence. Your drive to be recognized as successful keeps you on track toward your lofty goals. You often have a strong sense of direction in life, but may sometimes be too single-minded and obsessed with your work.

        It’s pretty accurate…but I like MB better LOL

    FYI

    Thinkers

    Feelers

    Are able to stay cool, calm, and objective in situations where everyone else is upset.

    Consider a “good decision” one that takes others’ feelings into account

    Would rather settle a dispute based on what is fair and truthful than on what will make people happy.

    Feel that “love” cannot be defined; you take great offense at those who try to do so.

    Enjoy proving a point for the sake of clarity; it’s not beyond you to argue both sides in a discussion simply to expand your intellectual horizons.

    Will overextend yourself meeting other people’s needs; you’ll do almost anything to accommodate others, even at the expense of your own comfort.

    Are more firm-minded than gentle-hearted; if you disagree with people, you would rather tell them than say nothing and let them think they’re right.

    Put yourself in other people’s moccasins; you are likely to be the one in a meeting who asks, “How will this affect the people involved?”

    Pride yourself on your objectivity despite the fact that some people accuse you of being cold and uncaring; you know this couldn’t be further from the truth.

    Enjoy providing needed services to people although you find that come people take advantage of you.

    Don’t mind making difficult decisions and can’t understand why so many people get upset about things that aren’t relevant to the issue at hand.

    Find yourself wondering, “Doesn’t anyone care about what I want?” although you may have difficulty actually saying this to anyone.

    Think it’s more important to be right than liked; you don’t believe it is necessary to like people in order to be able to work with them and do a good job.

    Won’t hesitate to take back something you’ve said that you perceive has offended someone; as a result you’re accused of being wishy-washy.

    Are impressed with and lend more credence to things that are logical and scientific; until you receive more information to justify Typewatching’s benefits, for example, you are skeptical about what it can do.

    Prefer harmony over clarity; you are embarrassed by conflict and will try to either avoid it (“Let’s change the subject”) or smother is (“Let’s all shake hands and be friends”).

    Remember numbers and figures more readily than faces and names
