Those of us who did it the first time around have been comparing old results with recent results.  :-)

The last three times I've done the test, I've ended up with INTP twice and INTJ once.  That was all a few years ago, so I'd be curious to see if I've developed along new lines given that my job has put me into more and more contact with people that I used to in the past!

So, we have an overabundance of Counselors and Masterminds... No wonder we're good at planning and plotting stuff together.

INFJ once again.

    You have distinctive preference of Introversion over Extraversion (67%)
    You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (25%)
    You have distinctive preference of Feeling over Thinking (62%)
    You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (44%)


Though I do find the test's questions somewhat odd and open for interpretation. There were a few were I'd pick a third option. I don't believe a person is as black and white as the test's questions leave room for.

The professional version has that annoying five-point scale (Strongly agree, Agree, Undecided, Disagree, Strongly disagree.)

I usually get INFJ but this time around I got ISFJ through the test given at my college. A lot of it feels accurate but some of it doesn't quite fit me. I guess I would count as borderline in the iNtuitive/Sensing portion. Go figure. XD

Two years ago I took the professional test courtesy of my college.

The results I received were a dominant and very distinct E and an auxiliary, also very distinct, T. S/N was very close though P was also very distinct.

In the end I was ENTP and I felt that this was an accurate assessment given my understanding of the types.

While not always accurate the test did make a lot of group work significantly easier since everyone knew their type. We used it to easily explain our preferences in regards to brainstorming, group dynamics, and information gathering in ways that everyone understood.

I think, at least for the purposes of what I've used the types for, the E-I spectrum wound up being the most important because it most directly related to how someone tends to gain their energy and deal with their social interactions. The knowledge made sure that I didn't run roughshod over my friends while they were busy formulating thoughts and still processing information. At the same time it also let them understand that when I'm randomly spewing out ideas not all of them are serious, but I made decisions most easily by bouncing them off of other people no matter how inane they are.

I find that interesting. I have often used the basic types when creating characters. I had trouble getting to the heart of their personalities and a study of MBTI Types really helped.

Hah, interesting thread. I've never heard of this test before but I took it and can't say the results surprised me much ::)

extroversion over introversion 89%
intuition over sensing 25%
feeling over thinking 62%
perceiving over judging 44%

makes me a ENFP. This time around anyway.


edit:
Ha! Looked at that older thread and saw this means Champion xD I rather liked the description of it, not sure whether it applies to me or not ;)

Your own personal view of the world around you at any given moment is tainted by current life events and emotions. It causes you to judge certain situations in differing ways.

That same person when asked a year later may be at a different point in their life and agree that "yes, they are often late because of various things." Etc...

+1

The test gave me ENFP (11%, 62%,38%, 28%), that's the first time I've ever been an E not an I - funky.  So, Amelia, you aren't the only one.

ENFJ....

Huh, apparently one of the least common types....

And also the type most likely to believe in a higher power...well isn't that ironic?

Hm... Just looking at the categories, I think I can see it.  Does it say anything in the INFJ's about spiritual beliefs?  It seems to me that Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving categories would be more keen to go with the 'show me proof' crowd.  I'm not so sure that Introversion v. Extroversion would influence that as much.  Oh, and 'most likely' doesn't always mean much.

I can see what you're aiming at with that, which amuses me because I'm certainly of the 'annnnnddd...proof?' crowd.

And no, I didn't look up the Introverted side of things with the rest of that acronym in place.

Are your numbers near the center of the scale on any of those three?  A low or marginal preference could possibly change back and forth.  (I vaguely remember my 'I' was a low-to-moderate preference, back when I took it.  I'm much more 'E' online.)

*nods*  Not a shrink, but that probably explains why you're not in that 'most likely to' category.  I'd bet that under a different set of circumstances, some of those lows might flip to the other side, the way my 'I' flips to 'E' on occasion.

I've known mine for quite a while:  INFP (external link).  No matter which personality test I've taken, I always come out the same.   It's a tough personality type to be, I've discovered.  I've even come across a blog titled "Surviving INFP".  Go figure.  What really sucks is being someone with ADHD who is introverted.  :P  But, hey.  There are things about my personality I wouldn't change for anything.  :-)

Agreed.  Understanding myself as an INTP has done wonders for my self-esteem.  I'm damn proud of my type; I wouldn't change it for anything.
