Your Personality Type (MBTI)

  1. Well I'm remaking this thread so.
    Here's a psychological personality test that determines your type based on four factors:

    Extraversion vs. Introversion
    Sensing vs. Intuition
    Thinking vs. Feeling
    Judgement vs. Perception

    They're 16 types that you can get, some examples being ESTJ, INFP, ENTP, INFJ, and so on...It gives you a description, too.

    I took it and got INFP, and the results seem very accurate. You have to answer the questions truthfully and honestly though. You can take it here- http://goddessflight.com/per/

    I've taken this test a few times before, I always get the same result. ISFJ. Introversion is my strongest trait. I've been identified as a moderately expressed introvert. Basically I'm a compulsive worrier with a pathological need to be helpful. I don't open up or get attached to people very often but when I do it's always an extreme attachment. A "friends to the end" sort of mentality.

    Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging

    ISFJs are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their "need to be needed." In extreme cases, this need is so strong that standard give-and-take relationships are deeply unsatisfying to them; however, most ISFJs find more than enough with which to occupy themselves within the framework of a normal life. (Since ISFJs, like all SJs, are very much bound by the prevailing social conventions, their form of "service" is likely to exclude any elements of moral or political controversy; they specialize in the local, the personal, and the practical.)

    ISFJs are often unappreciated, at work, home, and play. Ironically, because they prove over and over that they can be relied on for their loyalty and unstinting, high-quality work, those around them often take them for granted--even take advantage of them. Admittedly, the problem is sometimes aggravated by the ISFJs themselves; for instance, they are notoriously bad at delegating ("If you want it done right, do it yourself"). And although they're hurt by being treated like doormats, they are often unwilling to toot their own horns about their accomplishments because they feel that although they deserve more credit than they're getting, it's somehow wrong to want any sort of reward for doing work (which is supposed to be a virtue in itself). (And as low-profile Is, their actions don't call attention to themselves as with charismatic Es.) Because of all of this, ISFJs are often overworked, and as a result may suffer from psychosomatic illnesses.

    In the workplace, ISFJs are methodical and accurate workers, often with very good memories and unexpected analytic abilities; they are also good with people in small-group or one-on-one situations because of their patient and genuinely sympathetic approach to dealing with others. ISFJs make pleasant and reliable co-workers and exemplary employees, but tend to be harried and uncomfortable in supervisory roles. They are capable of forming strong loyalties, but these are personal rather than institutional loyalties; if someone they've bonded with in this way leaves the company, the ISFJ will leave with them, if given the option. Traditional careers for an ISFJ include: teaching, social work, most religious work, nursing, medicine (general practice only), clerical and and secretarial work of any kind, and some kinds of administrative careers.

    While their work ethic is high on the ISFJ priority list, their families are the centers of their lives. ISFJs are extremely warm and demonstrative within the family circle--and often possessive of their loved ones, as well. When these include Es who want to socialize with the rest of the world, or self-contained ITs, the ISFJ must learn to adjust to these behaviors and not interpret them as rejection. Being SJs, they place a strong emphasis on conventional behavior (although, unlike STJs, they are usually as concerned with being "nice" as with strict propriety); if any of their nearest and dearest depart from the straight-and-narrow, it causes the ISFJ major embarrassment: the closer the relationship and the more public the act, the more intense the embarrassment (a fact which many of their teenage children take gleeful advantage of). Over time, however, ISFJs usually mellow, and learn to regard the culprits as harmless eccentrics :). Needless to say, ISFJs take infinite trouble over meals, gifts, celebrations, etc., for their loved ones--although strong Js may tend to focus more on what the recipient should want rather than what they do want.

    Like most Is, ISFJs have a few, close friends. They are extremely loyal to these, and are ready to provide emotional and practical support at a moment's notice. (However, like most Fs they hate confrontation; if you get into a fight, don't expect them to jump in after you. You can count on them, however, run and get the nearest authority figure.) Unlike with EPs, the older the friendship is, the more an ISFJ will value it. One ISFJ trait that is easily misunderstood by those who haven't known them long is that they are often unable to either hide or articulate any distress they may be feeling. For instance, an ISFJ child may be reproved for "sulking," the actual cause of which is a combination of physical illness plus misguided "good manners." An adult ISFJ may drive a (later ashamed) friend or SO into a fit of temper over the ISFJ's unexplained moodiness, only afterwards to explain about a death in the family they "didn't want to burden anyone with." Those close to ISFJs should learn to watch for the warning signs in these situations and take the initiative themselves to uncover the problem.

    My two favorite fellow ISFJ's: Harry Truman & Dr. Watson.

    I think 'the best one' can be easily defined as not containing an 'F'.

    Because being shy, thoughtful, and considerate of other people is a bad thing. :rolleyes:

    You will never convince me that 'feeling' could possibly be better than 'thinking'. Feeling is the opposite of progress.
     
  9. Aw come on having feelings is a great thing...feeling is better than thinking in my opinion...at least with feelings you'll care about how others feel about certain things.

    INTP. It always surprises my friends that I score really high on the introvert scale.

    bel9 n3w 2 sppf :3

    Currently INFP or INTP with low scores in Introversion (I am certain my introversion has declined over time.)

    Apparently I straddle both Feeling and Thinking as I've taken this twice- once in high school and once for career development at the writing center- and gotten low scores in each.

    I've taken these tests quite a few times and I usually score INFP.

  13. I'm IIPF. A really emotional person, but not as deep as the traits would lead on.

    I consistently get ENFP on these types of tests. I would call that an accurate assumption on who I am.
     
  17. I sometimes get INTP and sometimes get ISTP. Though in neither case am I very high in introversion.

    Fenyxfyr Got a problem?

    How timely...I am about to start an on-line career assist course that will include the Myers-Briggs and I took the short version in your link and came up with ISFJ.
    And that is soooooo me.
