I am absolutely intrigued by personality typing and psychology an I really think the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator is one of the best personality tests out there. I remember reading about my type and thinking ‘Finally….it all makes sense.’
So Bees, what’s your type? Unfortunately, there are only 15 poll options so to ensure every type is listed, I grouped them according to their predominant characteristics. PLEASE tell us your exact MBTI type in your comment, i.e., ESTP or ISFJ etc and if you feel the description suits you.
Here is the test for those of you who have never taken it (and I would strongle avise you to try it as you really do learn a lot about yourself):

And HERE are the explanations for each type in a nutshell:

I am INTJ which is apprarently rare for women, and it fits me to a T. The only things that are a bit off is that I do very highly value my family and personal relationships, and I only have one of the hobbies listed (reading). Other than that everything is spot on.

Depending on what version of the test I take (I was a Psych major, this came up in a few classes) I’m an INFP or INFJ, though never very strongly one direction on the perceiving/judging axis.

I’m ISFJ, seems pretty accurate.

INFJ or ENFJ.
I get both sides. So I imagine I’m pretty close to the middle as far as introverted/extroverted. I love quiet time but I also am very comfortable in large groups and I love going out. But I’m pretty terrible at networking.
It’s pretty accurate. I find it funny they said you are likely than most to believe in a higher power or to have a career in religion (among others). I’m agnostic but I have my a BA and MA in religious studies so I do love to study it and it fascinates me.
A lot of the others are spot on:
- Most likely of all types to cope with stress by exercising
- Ranked by psychologists as among least likely to have trouble in school
- Personal values include Friendships, Education & Learning, Creativity, and Community Service
- Tend to be more successful than the average in learning a foreign language
- Among types most likely to be dissatisfied with their work

INFP, but the F is very borderline.

I am ISFJ. Seems pretty accurate I guess!
Post # 9
INFJ, which is, apparently “rare.”

@urchin: Whee, we’re twins haha. My “S” was a really low percentage though. Actually all of mine were sorta low except “I”… can’t deny I’m an introvert!

I’ve gotten both ENFJ and ESFJ – I probably lean more towards the former, and it’s pretty accurate. SO is INTJ and the description fits him to a T!

These tests never know what to do with me — apparently I’m borderline on pretty much every dimension except Judging. According to multiple of these tests, I am one of these: ENTJ, ESTJ, ISFJ, INTJ, or ISTJ.

INTP here! It describes me to a T. I love Myers-Briggs and I think it really helps me understand people and relationships. I had always thought I was just weird, but now I know I’m perfectly normal for an INTP. It has really helped me learn more about myself and my potential.
For those of you who are between two types, you might want to read about the cognitive functions associated with each type. I always test as INTJ, which seems similar to INTP, but the cognitive functions are completely different.

I’ve taken that test about, literally, 30 times at minimum throughout my life, and I’ve always always gotten the same results. However, as I’ve gotten older, I have become even more introverted, which is funny since I can easily hold on a long conversation that would look effortless to the outward world, but it is so exhausting for me unless I am very close & comfortable with the person.
&, I also believe I have struggled with depression for the majority of my life due to the depth that comes with being an INFP, and the excessive introspection.

I’m an INFJ. I’ve taken this test multiple times over the years and I always get INFJ or ENFJ. I think it’s reasonably accurate- I would describe myself as a problem solver, I did very well in school, and I’m certainly idealistic.
I identify more with a few of the ENFJ traits though, like coping with stress by exercising.

INFJ… it’s really accurate.
