Myers Briggs personality type

personperson Don't believe everything you think'Merica! Veteran

Came across this short piece and thought to ask if people here know what type they are and would want to share. Even if you're unsure I saw myself immediately in this.

INTP all the way here.

    What does the A mean? Also, did you watch the video and did you recognize yourself?

    A friend had me take this test once:

    It seems to be a Myer Briggs test. I wouldn't know how good it is.

    My experience with this test is one of the things that helped me to understand anatta when I started learning about it.

    If I respond to the questions with how I felt/behaved for maybe the first 30-35 years of my life, I get the ISFP, "The Adventurer"

    Now I'm 40, married, 2 kids, office drone job, and the sudden impact of responsibilities that I spent most of my life ignoring has drastically changed how I interact with the world. So now I seem to be an INTP "The Logician"

    I miss the old guy. Letting go of the past is one reason I'm on the path.

    I'm way too complicated/full of changes for a test to be reliable or accurate. , hahahaha

    The last time I took this kind of test it gave me an INTP.

    But I do wonder about the the accuracy and usefulness of the types. It seems like quite a shortcut to try and categorise all of mankind by sixteen rough types, which calls into question how much you can tell about a person through the classification. There are bound to be a lot of outliers.

    No doubt a characteristic of one of the personality types. =)

    ETA: If I were to put you in a box, which "your type"(just poking fun :p ) hate, I would guess ENFP

    ENFPs have an Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Perceiving personality. This personality type is highly individualistic and Champions strive toward creating their own methods, looks, actions, habits, and ideas — they do not like cookie cutter people and hate when they are forced to live inside a box. They like to be around other people and have a strong intuitive nature when it comes to themselves and others. They operate from their feelings most of the time, and they are highly perceptive and thoughtful

    dude, that's totally what an INTP would say. :p

    I took one of these the last time a link was posted here, which was a few years ago. I waffle between INTJ and INFJ, as I recall. Kind of borderline between those two. When I read the explanation of what it meant, and also the potential career choices appropriate for that type, I really recognized myself. I was impressed with the test in that respect.

    But I didn't recognize myself from the exaggerated cliche images on the video. I don't think the video does the test justice.

    All the categories are evaluated on a spectrum, which I'm sure varies from time to time and for people more in the middle of any of them will be able to see themselves in several categories

    But I didn't recognize myself from the exaggerated cliche images on the video. I don't think the video does the test justice.

    Maybe they are just extreme versions of each type. I must be solidly in my lane because as soon I saw the kid talking, I was like, ME.

    When I was in my 20's I tested as an INFP. Now in my 40's:

    I actually agree with most of it....

    INFP. I discovered this test a few months ago, and the analysis really rung true. It has been very helpful to learn that certain 'defects' of mine were just my natural personality... nothing bad, just different.

    I think part of what I like about these sorts of things is that it helps me feel a little more normal. So instead of buying into the social butterfly narrative of being a nerdy introvert that overthinks everything, that its okay to be me.
