What's your personality type?

<p>Have you ever taken a a Myers-Brigg personality test? Did you think your results matched you?</p>

<p>In case you have never taken an Myers-Brigg personality test, here is a free version you can take on the net: Personality</a> Test Center - Discover your personality type.</p>

<p>My results came back as an INFP. I'm surprised how much the profile describes me perfectly.</p>

<p>Personality</a> Test Center - INFP Discover your personality type.</p>

<p>I vow to avoid online tests, but I did this one (is it accurate, w/only 60 or so questions?).</p>

<p>I'm the same as you, tenisghs (INFP). It did describe me really, really well! Interesting! :-)</p>

<p>ISFJ. Totally me. Did this years ago and have a description at home of ISFJ from another site that describes me to a T.</p>

<p>I've done an online test, and it came back as the same type that a paper/pencil test did years ago: ENTJ. (Very strong NT, weak EJ.)</p>

<p>I'm another INFP. Funny how many of us are here on CC thus far, considering we're only 1% of the population.</p>

<p>Maybe we have a high attraction to education and helping others? lol</p>

<p>Although CC can be cutthroat at times, we feel at home here.</p>

<p>ENFJ. Interestingly, under the career section, it lists jobs related to both my college major and minor. Seems pretty right on.</p>

<p>ENFP here. Well, that is according to a Myers-Briggs test I took in the late 1980s. Not sure if those things stay the same or not. I spent most of my career as a newspaper reporter but now work as a university science writer.</p>

<p>INFJ, but 50/50 split between I and E.</p>

<p>NotMamaRose, journalist was listed on the ENFP link: Personality</a> Test Center - ENFP Discover your personality type. I guess your type described you well too.</p>

<p>I'm an off-the-charts ENFP! Working in HR is definitely the right fit for me.</p>

<p>I usually get INFP, but anything that starts with IN feels partially correct, or correct for certain moods. To some extent it depends on how I interpret certain questions.</p>

<p>It's a fun little quiz, but people should not make the mistake of believing that it is scientifically valid. It always worries me a bit when people take it seriously as a way to determine an appropriate career.</p>

<p>You're correct, Jessie. These types don't force only one career on an individual. For example, I can't even see myself in psychology or human resources but I am attracted to social work and graphic design. All four areas are considered common among INFPs. A few posters here including myself are INFPs but we're in different careers. The only person who can define your talents is yourself. These quizzes help narrow down the career choices that are out there.</p>

<p>I also believe you can develop yourself very strongly in areas that are not your natural tendency (which is why for years I avoided Meyers-Briggs tests--didn't want to be 'pre-determined'). For instance, I'm pretty shy, but in the past several years have developed into a very social person who can (& will) talk w/almost anyone, anywhere.</p>

<p>But, lately I do notice that jobs I enjoy are more solitary, rather than relying on interaction as the focus of the position. Also, I can have a blast at a party, talking to tons of people, making them laugh, etc....but, after it's all done I'm completely exhausted. Some people might be energized by a highly social situation. </p>

<p>As I'm planning a career re-entry, I'm finding I agree a bit more with the whole 'go w/your natural tendencies' thing than I did when young and starting out (maybe because I've transcended most negatives about those natural tendencies...hopefully...lol).</p>

<p>I think these assessments have their place...</p>

<p>Jolynne, I feel just the same way you do about socializing. I can talk to anyone anywhere and do just fine at parties. When the party's over, I'm exhausted. Also, I need time to get used to the idea of attending or, even moreso, having a party. Talking on the phone is similar; there are days I just don't want to do it and other days when I can't think of enough people to call (these are few and far between though).</p>

<p>The only thing about my description I don't agree with is a supposed inability to relax. I can relax just fine...no problem at all kicking back and doing nothing.</p>

<p>ISTJ, scientist - bingo.</p>

<p>I got ISTJ ("trustee")went back and changed some answers and got ESTJ. I'm never really sure if I'm an introvert or an extrovert. I used to be shy, but I've learned not to be. I've been president of a number of organizations, so I think ESTJ ("administrator") is actually more accurate these days. I'm still trying to figure out how to fill out the darn thing so that I can be an "architect".</p>

<p>I'm not so good at small talk with strangers, but very good at it if I know people or have a role in the organization, or a job. I do fine as an architect with new clients, contractors. I like meeting new people. I hate making phone calls though!</p>

<p>ESTJ here...but barely an E - I am situationally extroverted/introverted. D is a very strong ENFP. The ESTJ goes very strongly with my career choice, which is controls related. </p>

<p>cpeltz...funny, I've been talking to D about a career in HR.</p>

<p>We've found the college search quite difficult because of our opposing styles...me, fact and statistic oriented, making decisions base on criteria, probability of acceptance/merit aid. Her...the feeling of a place seems to have the most weight.</p>

<p>Meyers Briggs is interesting to look at from an individual and on a team basis. Found out my team is also made up of several E and ISTJs.</p>

<p>INFJ from a previous test.</p>

<p>Spot on, though most people who know me would swear that I am an extrovert.</p>

<p>INFP, it fits.</p>
