Still an INTJ (Myers-Briggs testing)

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been interested in how life events and experiences will influence a Myers-Briggs test result. I did the test again on HumanMetrics.com. My results this time were:

Your Type is
INTJ
Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging
Strength of the preferences %
44 62 75 11

My previous blogs on Myers-Briggs indicate a trend in my Myers-Briggs test results. Interesting, really. I do think that life events and experiences can affect your score, although it seems that there will always be some consistency in your personality (otherwise, I wouldn’t keep getting INTJ). I notice that my intuitive and thinking scores went up while my judging score went down a bit. I consider this a good thing. I think I’ve been thinking more carefully about decisions and have been trying to be less judging overall. I’m still not afraid to make decisions, which is why I’m still an INTJ and not an INTP. 😉

Yes, yes, Myers-Briggs test again

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

The last time I did this test on HumanMetrics, I got an INFJ. This time, like most other times, I got an INTJ. My results this time are: 56% introverted, 50% intuitive, 62% thinking, and 22% judging. Based on descriptions of INTJ, I think I sound like one. This description in particular left me in a fit of giggles – INTJ: Everything has Room for Improvement (I have corners in both my bedroom and my living room for my “projects”). What type are you?

Myers-Briggs Yet Again

Monday, April 28th, 2008

Its been over a year since I did the Myers-Briggs personality testing, out of curiosity I did it again.

Here’s what I got from the Okcupid version:

The LONG Scientific Personality Test
Your Score: INTJ -The Mastermind
You scored 9% I to E, 42% N to S, 71% F to T, and 47% J to P!

You are more introverted than extroverted. You are more intuitive than observant, you are more thinking based than feeling based, and you prefer to have a plan rather than leaving things to chance. Your type is best described by the word “mastermind”, which belongs to the larger group called rationals. Only 1% of the population shares your type. You are very strong willed and self-confident. You can hardly rest until you have things settled. You will only adopt ideas and rules if they make sense. You are a great brainstormer and often come up with creative solutions to difficult problems. You are open to new concepts, and often actively seek them out.
As a romantic partner, you can be both fascinating yet demanding. You are not apt to express your emotions, leaving your partner wondering where they are with you. You strongly dislike repeating yourself or listening to the disorganized process of sorting through emotional conflicts. You see your own commitments as self-evident and don’t see why you need to repeat something already expressed. You have the most difficulty in admitting your vulnerabilities. You feel the most appreciated when your partner admires the quality of your innovations and when they listen respectfully to your ideas and advice. You need plenty of quiet to explore your interests to the depth that gives you satisfaction.
Your group summary: rationals (NT)
Your type summary: INTJ

According to HumanMetrics I am an INFJ. I scored 44% introverted, 25% intuitive, 38% feeling, and 22% judging. According to Keirsey.com, I’m a “Counsellor Idealist”.

The Portait of the Counselor (INFJ)

The Counselor Idealists are abstract in thought and speech, cooperative in reaching their goals, and enterprising and attentive in their interpersonal roles. Counselors focus on human potentials, think in terms of ethical values, and come easily to decisions. The small number of this type (little more than 2 percent) is regrettable, since Counselors have an unusually strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others and genuinely enjoy helping their companions. Although Counsleors tend to be private, sensitive people, and are not generally visible leaders, they nevertheless work quite intensely with those close to them, quietly exerting their influence behind the scenes with their families, friends, and colleagues. This type has great depth of personality; they are themselves complicated, and can understand and deal with complex issues and people.

Counselors can be hard to get to know. They have an unusually rich inner life, but they are reserved and tend not to share their reactions except with those they trust. With their loved ones, certainly, Counselors are not reluctant to express their feelings, their face lighting up with the positive emotions, but darkening like a thunderhead with the negative. Indeed, because of their strong ability to take into themselves the feelings of others, Counselors can be hurt rather easily by those around them, which, perhaps, is one reason why they tend to be private people, mutely withdrawing from human contact. At the same time, friends who have known a Counselor for years may find sides emerging which come as a surprise. Not that they are inconsistent; Counselors value their integrity a great deal, but they have intricately woven, mysterious personalities which sometimes puzzle even them… (For more, see Keirsey.com – Four Temperaments.)

Huh? Interesting. This implies that I am more feeling than thinking now. Wonder if some of the life changes this past year have affected my personality? Interesting… quite interesting.

Myers-Briggs and Enneagram Test

Monday, November 20th, 2006

MM,

Test time again. Below is a Myers-Brigg type test. I again got INTJ.

INTJ – “Mastermind”. Introverted intellectual with a preference for finding certainty. A builder of systems and the applier of theoretical models. 2.1% of total population.

Free Jung Word Choice Test (similar to MBTI)
personality tests by similarminds.com

2.1% of the total population huh? I wonder if that’s why I find it hard to relate to most people.

Then I did an Enneagram test. I’ve been wondering about the Enneagram for a while. I’ve done a few tests for this and two have pegged me as a 7. Then, I found a book on the Enneagram in the laundry room of our building (we recycle books by leaving them in the laundry room for people to take if it pleases them). Nathan and I went through the nine different personality types and it does seem like 7 is most like me, though I wonder if I might be a 3 in the closet. Hehe. Below are my results from one online Ennegram test.

Enneagram test results

You are most likely a type 7.

Taking wings into account, you seem to be a 7w8.

No personality test is completely accurate. Although several measures were taken to make this test as accurate as possible, there’s always a chance that you are not typed correctly by it. Therefore, when deciding which Enneagram type and wing you are, you might also want to consider the types with the highest test scores on the lists below.

(Note that your lowest scores may be omitted.)
Type 7 – 8.3
Type 1 – 8
Type 5 – 6.7
Type 8 – 6.3
Type 2 – 6.3
Type 9 – 6
Type 6 – 5.7

Wing 7w8 – 11.5
Wing 1w2 – 11.2
Wing 7w6 – 11.2
Wing 1w9 – 11
Wing 8w7 – 10.4
Wing 2w1 – 10.3
Wing 9w1 – 10
Wing 6w7 – 9.9
Wing 5w6 – 9.6
Wing 8w9 – 9.3
Wing 9w8 – 9.2
Wing 6w5 – 9.1
Wing 5w4 – 6.7
Wing 2w3 – 6.3

Enneagram test – Introduction to the Enneagram – Energy and the Enneagram

A description of the 7 personality says that I’m a “pleasure seeker and planner, in search of distraction”. It means that I plan my time to the fullest so that I will hopefully never become bored. Supposedly, 7s are not introspective, even though I keep a personal journal with my deepest thoughts in it. I wonder if perhaps I grew up as a 3 wing 4 and just learned to be a 7. Strange. I will have to read up more on the Enneagram (a very 5 thing to do).

Myers-Briggs test again

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

MM,

Re-did the Myers-Briggs test found on my previous blog entry. My results this time were INTJ – 44% introverted, 50% intuitive, 1% thinking, and 44% judging. My previous results were – 33% introverted, 30% intuitive, 12% thinking, and 33% judging. Hm… strange how things can change.

A different test gave me INTJ – 9% introverted, 21% intuitive, 71% thinking, and 31% judging. Huh? I wonder why the big difference in the two tests…

A little insight about me…

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

MM,

Awhile back I did a short online Myers-Briggs personality test. The result was INTJ and below was the short summary of that personality type sent to me in email.

INTJ (me!)

“INTJ is the designer. Put her behind the scenes and she will come
up with a system that works. The challenge for her is to sell her
system to others and to convince them of how useful and beneficial
the system will be.

INTJ has a very active inner mental life, and will only share it with
others when she has come to clear ends of conclusions. What ifs and
small talk don’t come easy.

If you ask an INTJ a question, be prepared to listen carefully to the
answer. INTJs hate to waste their breathe.

They are willing to work very hard for the things they think are
worthwhile. However, one has to convince them with Logic, rather
than emotions. They can be very fair and just and make good judges.
However they can be insensitive to the values of others if those
values don’t appear logical.

INTJs can appear to be emotional, because when they are angry, they
speak vehemently, and when they are happy they speak much more
softly. They are very good auditors, editors and software testers.

Sciences, both hard and soft are good fields for the INTJ. In the
Craft, writing rituals, spells and designing ritual space is their
forte.”

Hope that provides some insight into my head!
