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