So, what's your Myers-Briggs Personality Type and how do you feel about it? I've taken the test multiple times and I came out as an ISTJ each time. I think the only reason i'm an ISTJ and not an INTJ is because i'm very concrete. However, I have a great imagination and love drawing cartoons and comics in my spare time. The problem is, applying that imagination to real life situations. Well, that's what I have to say about mine, anyway. Feel free to share.

Hi, I came out an INTJ although because my 'job category' only came out to ONE thing I changed a variable that I wasn't sure of to begin with (either way) I think it had to do with indoors/outdoors or working alone or with people (which fluxuates depending on context and situation thus the drame with the question) and ended up ENTJ with the full range of occupations I am interested in (surprisingly). Anyways my first go at it says I am to be a metal embosser. The second go at it says I'd be good with forest type services et al. Both are groovy with me. Maybe a metal worker in the forest. :-) Tho truly, INTJ pretty solidly.

I actually forget what they all mean, it's been awhile. I am INTROVERTED. I nervously conversate around others in some attempt to keep their attention OFF of me, to hide that I think perhaps they 'disturb' me (most humans do), rather to change the subject at hand really, ironically resulting in their apparant thinking that I am the life of the party, interested in them sexually, or definately at least EXTROVERTED. But the fact is, I RARELY say what I am thinking around people who don't posess the highly valued gift of 'seeing' me think. And to them I rarely talk at all, already having an understanding transmuted across the void.

uh.
:-)
Interesting thread

Wasn't there a post on here that had a link to the Meyers-Briggs test?

When I took it back in 1999, I was an ISTJ. When I took it again a few months ago, I was E*** (I don't remember the exact category).

I don't know why, but I can get different scores from these online Myers-Briggs tests. I just did a test online and got Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging (INTJ). In the past, I have gotten ISTJ. INFJ, and INTP. Usually I seem to get INTJ. Introversion usually is very expressed, while the other attributes may not be so.

I think I was INTJ. Was that the one that only 1% of people are? If so, then that was probably it. I got that several times, never anything else.

Well I collect the following data from a list I made from threads like this on WP.

Females (n=36)
NP NJ SJ SP
13 17 5 1

Males (n =33)
NP NJ SJ SP
11 14 7 1

ADHD seems to occur with the *N*P personality type(I'm one of them)

On my list 3 report E*** and 2 more seemed to be unsure(I'm not one of them).

Of the **F* type 5 males and 12 females report that type(I'm one of the males).

INTJ, I think I was 80's across the board except the the J which was either 50% or closer to 0. Despite what that Geezer guy blathered on about, I still think its best to have the J/P close to "0"

ISFJ-Protector Guardian

Introverted-50
Sensing-25
Feeling-12
Judging-56
(WTF? That dds up to more than 100!)

D. Kiersy's description:

The primary desire of the Protector Guardian is to be of service to others, but here "service" means not so much furnishing others with the necessities of life (the Provider's concern), as guarding others against life's pitfalls and perils, that is, seeing to their safety and security. There is a large proportion of Protectors in the population, perhaps as much as ten percent. And a good thing, because they are steadfast in their protecting, and seem fulfilled in the degree they can insure the safekeeping of those in their family, their circle of friends, or their place of business.

Protectors find great satisfaction in assisting the downtrodden and can deal with disability and neediness in others better than any other type. They go about their task of caretaking modestly, unassumingly, and because of this their efforts are not sometimes fully appreciated. They are not as outgoing and talkative as the Providers, except with close friends and relatives. With these they can chat tirelessly about the ups and downs in their lives, moving (like all the Guardians) from topic to topic as they talk over their everyday concerns. However, their shyness with strangers is often misjudged as stiffness, even coldness, when in truth these Protectors are warm-hearted and sympathetic, giving happily of themselves to those in need.

Their quietness ought really to be seen as an expression, not of coldness, but of their sincerity and seriousness of purpose. Like all the Guardians, Protectors have a highly developed puritan work ethic, which tells them that work is good, and that play must be earned-if indulged in at all. The least hedonic of all types, Protectors are willing to work long, long hours doing all the thankless jobs the other types seem content to ignore. Thoroughness and frugality are also virtues for Protectors. When they undertake a task, they will complete it if at all humanly possible; and they know the value of material resources and abhor the squandering or misuse of these resources. Protectors are quite content to work alone; indeed, they may experience some discomfort when placed in positions of authority, and may try to do everything themselves rather than insist that others do their jobs.

With their extraordinary commitment to security, and with their unusual talent for executing routines, Protectors do well in many careers that have to do with conservation: curators, private secretaries, librarians, middle-managers, police officers, and especially general medical practitioners. To be sure, the hospital is a natural haven for them; it is home to the family doctor, preserver of life and limb, and to the registered nurse, or licensed practical nurse, truly the angels of mercy. The insurance industry is also a good fit for Protectors. To save, to put something aside against an unpredictable future, to prepare for emergencies-these are important actions to Protectors, who as insurance agents want to see their clients in good hands, sheltered and protected.

Hmmm. That's funny, considering i'm an SJ with ADD. I don't have the H in mine, though. I'm not really hyper but I do go on unmedicated tangents where I tell myself bizarre jokes and talk in funny voices.

INTP every time except for one time I tested ISTJ. Actually it was browsing an INTP forum that led me to start revisiting whether I might have Asperger's syndrome.
