    It’s so weird! I was just talking about this to my dad and Boyfriend or Best Friend and you made a post about it! I actually just got one of these to fill out in class the other day that I haven’t finished yet…I think I’ll do that now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was INFJ – I just took this test in January! It is a pretty accurate description of me actually.

    everytime i take this i take the temperament test too and the results seem to contradict each other… the temperament test seems to be closer to what i actually am.

    I don’t think the Myers Briggs really tells you anything new. I mean, it’s interesting and fun to see the results, but it wasn’t made by psychologists, and so it doesn’t correspond with the actual personality theories. It was actually made by corporate people for those tests you take when you’re applying for a job.

    If you really want to get psychological, google OCEAN or Big 5 Personality traits. It stands for Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. We took a test in this for one of my intro Psych classes at the beginning of my major, and it was way more detailed and so interesting!

    Sorry, psychology rant over!

    @lilyfaith:actually, the myers briggs test is based on the personality types described by Carl Jung, an established psychiatrist:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Jung

    The thing I like about MB is that it addresses different perspectives of personality, and doesn’t place you in one category, like “extrovert” or something.  I actually just commented on Miss Paisley’s blog post about how Fiance and I took this test when we first moved in together, and I think knowing about each other’s inclinations was really helpful for us.  Although you’re right about the career-placement angle, the first time I took it is was in high school for a career counseling thing.

    By the way, I am an ENTJ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Small world! I’m an INFJ too! I feel like it is a pretty accurate description of me. I love to help others and hope my future career in the legal will enable me to do so further.

    Fiance is an ENFJ, so I think we’re a pretty good match ๐Ÿ™‚

    @peanut – my intro professor was telling us about how they based it really loosely on Jung’s theory, and basically just added their own process with no credentials, studies, etc. They did that so that it would appear to have more merit than it did. I mean, it is what it is… a fun, interesting assessment. I wish I still had my notes from that lecture, it would have been fun for reference! He was a really interesting guy, he got his PhD under Zimbardo at Stanford and had all sorts of tales to relay.

    Mine was ISFP, Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving. I feel like that’s pretty accurate.

    INFJ here… and isn’t it odd that there are so many here. Supposedly we are 1-2% of the population.

    Sometimes when I take it I’m an ENFP and other times I’ve been an ENFJ…I’m obviously very close on the Perceiving/Judging front!
