    @HopefulSim:  You’re missing a few (ESTP, INTP, ESFJ, and maybe some others).

    Can you post links to the temperament test?

    I think you have to pay for the real Myers Briggs but I used this one tonight:

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

    I got what I usually do INTJ.  It’s always IN  though the TJ part is sometimes different… but I’ve only done online tests.

    The explaination the site above linked to was spot on. http://typelogic.com/intj.html  I couldn’t disagree with any of it :).  And laughed at this part:

    This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. 🙂 This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete’, paralleling that of many Fs — only instead of expecting inexhaustible affection and empathy from a romantic relationship, the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.

    I’m inept at small talk, and don’t care at all.  I have had a friend who told me to call his brother about something I was looking for in a new town.  He dialed and handed me the phone.  “Hi, I’m X, your brother said you’d know where I could find Y.”… “Ok, Thank you.”.  He later told me it was the shortest phone conversation of his life (and he was at least 30). 

    And I really really wish people made sense.  I actually remember sitting in 8th grade homeroom watching the petty crap and thinking “I can’t wait til I grow up and am an adult so everyone acts like adults”. Hahhahahhahaaa… basically I really thought people would grow up and make sense and do things that made sense. 🙂  Then I grew up and realized people still do petty crap and things that don’t make sense only now it involved their job, SO, living situation, car, etc, etc.

     AND! DH has said a few times “I’m only not offended by that because I understand how you think and that you’re asking out of purely logical theoretical curiousity.  🙁  But at least he understands, doesn’t knee jerk react, and says something so we can joke about it and it doesn’t become an issue.

    I’m ENFJ. Fits my personality, and my career (psychologist) is one of the top recommended careers for ENFJs!

    However, I’ve never taken the “temperament” test. Do you have a link?

    Mines not up there 🙁 ENFP. I used to be ENTP but I guess I went through some personal stuff in the last couple of years which sort of changed my personality a bit! I’m a lot more empathetic towards people now as a result, is my conclusion.

    I found the temperment test! I’m “choleric”
     “The choleric temperament is fundamentally ambitious and leader-like. They have a lot of aggression, energy, and/or passion, and try to instill it in others. They can dominate people of other temperaments, especially phlegmatic types. Many great charismatic military and political figures were choleric. They like to be in charge of everything. However, cholerics also tend to be either highly disorganized or highly organized. They do not have in-between setups, only one extreme to another. As well as being leader-like and assertive, cholerics also fall into deep and sudden depression. Essentially, they are very much prone to mood swings.”

    The test can be found here: http://personality-testing.info/tests/4T.php

    I took the full, real Myers Briggs in college (as a part of my scholarship program) and I was a ESTJ.

    I haven’t taken the other two tests though.

    ETA: I just took the temperment test and got the following:

    Your temperment is choleric. The choleric temperament is fundamentally ambitious and leader-like. They have a lot of aggression, energy, and/or passion, and try to instill it in others. They can dominate people of other temperaments, especially phlegmatic types. Many great charismatic military and political figures were choleric. They like to be in charge of everything. However, cholerics also tend to be either highly disorganized or highly organized. They do not have in-between setups, only one extreme to another. As well as being leader-like and assertive, cholerics also fall into deep and sudden depression. Essentially, they are very much prone to mood swings.
