Default SoL Jung-Briggs Typology Personality Thread

Test: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

I did a quick search and the other thread about this subject was from 2013. That's enough time for things to change within oneself.

Example: prior to 2013 I was ENTP, with a marginal or no preference of Perceiving over Judging. Then, in 2013 I changed to ENTJ, with the same marginal or no preference.

Now, in the fourth year of college, I have a marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%), but I think that's more related to interpersonal relationships than college itself.

Anyway, my results:



The next thread will be about vedic astrology birth charts.

I really hate the MBTI.

The thing is, everyone online claims to be an INTJ or some other really rare category. That tells me the test is pretty easy to game.

What's particularly infuriating is that there are those who try to use this as an actual metric when hiring employees. This sort of pseudoscience can prevent qualified people from getting jobs.

It's as silly as those political orientation tests, but at least nobody really takes those very seriously. Folks do take the MBTI (and its variations) seriously, and that has a negative social effect.

Krainz, sorry if I came off as overly hostile. Nothing against you, I just really hate the MBTI.

I usually compare it to horoscopes, but I guess phrenology is more accurate.

INFP, married to an INTJ. INTJs are most overreprestented on the Internet, it seems. I swear the Internet is a haven for them.

Well, okay, there are a lot of reasons as to why INTJs frequent hyperspace, but I digress. I never see many INFPs, but I think it's because they're less vocal online. As a general rule, we don't like conflict, and people tend to get rather uppity when in online discussions.

Whilst I'm sure this shit can be used as some kind of rudimentary measuring stick for personalities, giving an at least somewhat correct idea of what sort of person someone might be, the ridicolous plethora of different variables and inconsistencies in individuals makes it pretty much impossible to pin-point something like a personality with scientific precision.

I might take the test later on today. I'm sure I'll end up as some introverted autist asshole archetype.

ISTJ
You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (6%)
You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (16%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (31%)
You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (3%)

But again there are so many variables. I sat there saying to myself "Well it depends" on so many questions

I'm one of those people who usually scores INTJ.

I think maybe a lot of people don't know themselves very well and/or fill it out according to how they wish they were.

They are pretty silly. I've never heard of someone losing their job over one, but I'm sure it's happened at some point.

I'm usually INFP or INFJ on this. To be honest it's not really the most exact test but it can give you some basic idea on a person if the questions are answered honestly and correctly(some of the questions are hard to answer correctly imo). What I'm really interested in are the 'functions' of each type, not the overall descriptions for each type, which are what I think makes most people disregard the test. The functions, as far as I can tell, might actually have something 'legit' to them, but I really don't know for sure, not really the easiest thing to check as an arm chair wannabe psychologist.

Quote:
ENTJ
Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging
"I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?"
ENTJs have a natural tendency to marshall and direct. This may be expressed with the charm and finesse of a world leader or with the insensitivity of a cult leader. The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way... "I make these little plans that really don't have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out." While "compelled" may not describe ENTJs as a group, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively and to make those plans reality is a common theme for NJ types.

ENTJs are often "larger than life" in describing their projects or proposals. This ability may be expressed as salesmanship, story-telling facility or stand-up comedy. In combination with the natural propensity for filibuster, our hero can make it very difficult for the customer to decline.

TRADEMARK: -- "I'm really sorry you have to die." (I realize this is an overstatement. However, most Fs and other gentle souls usually chuckle knowingly at this description.)

ENTJs are decisive. They see what needs to be done, and frequently assign roles to their fellows. Few other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often leading the charge) into the mouth of hell. When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may unleash an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.
I've been an ENTJ since forever but i seem to be drifting towards I and P as I get older.

I, like everyone else on the Internet, came up with INTP (or maybe INTJ).

I'm an introvert, I am by no means qualified or arrogant enough to do further self-evaluation.

Edit:
Oh and I'll add Asperger's to the list of quirky maladies and "traits" people like to claim they have.

Why would people claim they have Aspergers?

They're the type of people that want to be seen as having some sort of "disadvantage" in order to garner sympathy. Snowflakes in other words.

Note, I am not referring to those who genuinely have these afflictions, rather those who claim they do for the attention.
