I have taken this test several times. I'm an INTJ. Because I can not perceive, I judge. Still exploring the details of these things.

WHAAAAT!??? I'm among the type we have the very most of!!

Now I'm really beginning to doubt it all. I'm NEVER the type most others are, lol.

This is actually funny. :-D

I'm an INTJ ... apparently.

But I did have a lot of 'But...!"s and "Hmmm?"s while doing this test.

Here're a few things I thought along the way:

*******

The Myers Briggs questionaire is very frustrating. They give you all sorts of general questions that one just can't answer generally to.
Examples:

"You tend to sympathize with other people."

But that depends on who they are! I can't just say Yes or No to that!

"You often speculate about humankind and its destiny."

I do speculate about humankind, but not about its destiny, because I don't believe it has one! So what do I answer?

"You value justice higher than mercy"

Truth is I value both equally. So what do I answer? These questions seem to imply that when you answer no to one of them, you mean it's opposite.

"You know how to put every minute to good purpose".

In theory, yes, I most definitely do know how to put every minute to good purpose. But in reality, I very often don't actually do it. If they had phrased it: "You DO put every minute to good use", I could have said Yes or No (it would've been the latter of course).

A lot of the time I just don't know what they really mean, and so the outcome could be very imprecise. I have completed this test differently in a number of times, but always felt the outcome (which tend to be the same, though it has been mostly one of two results; forgot which though) was pretty much on the button (maybe because I never actually lie). But if different outcomes can be correct, then how precise is this test?

I see the Myers-Mriggs pop up everywhere - among other places in at least two high iq organizations I'm a member of. And I always sit back feeling the way I have described above.
I've even voiced it too (like I do now), but nothing seems to come of it. Most people just don't seem to have much to say to what I say. So I wonder (still), is it (this test) merely pass time in the sense that it's actually useless?

What is psychology without some cultural context in time anyway? It does seem to work, but it's use is very limited. And personally I think we put way too much belief in it, even to the point of being religious.
Not long ago people would never have thought of going to a psychiatrist (when feeling down or otherwise). They went to their local minister and did their weekly confession. Now we go our psychologist - for a fee, of course - and talk until we feel better (or not).
Less than 50 years ago Freud was believed to be the greatest psychologist there ever was. Look at his works today, and you'll soon roll over with laughter (of course, a few still believe in Freud (or was it Fraud?), but then again, a few also still believe the earth is flat).

As a person with Asperger's Syndrome I actually tend to be pretty much "stunned" when prompted to act by a sudden unexpected event, unable to act, unless I have had a chance to go over my action/activity in my mind - planned it, so to speak - or have done it before.
But I'm also not good at following plans. I procrastinate and end up having to "improvise" (again based on what I have done before).

So what do I answer to a question like this:

"You usually plan your actions in advance" ...?

Actually I DO plan my actions in advance, down the very detail of how I smile or when to blink my eyes, especially in social situations. But I doubt that is what they mean with this question. I don't really know what they mean, actually... maybe something like "You're not spontaneous", but my answer to that would still be "Sometimes I am, it all depends...!".


And how about this one: "You are a person somewhat reserved and distant in communication".

Well, yes I AM, but I know I often don't come across that way, and I have done a lot of work in order to not seem distant. So what's my answer here? How I SEEM or how I actually AM inside?


The same thing with "You tend to be unbiased even if it puts your relationship with others at risk".
Well, I AM unbiased, but not always outwardly so. Sometimes I just don't involve myself, if it seems pointless and only ends up hurting someone, and since it rarely has anybody change their view to a better or more correct one. But then again, there are situations where the topic is too important and I have to show where I stand. It all differs so much it's hard to say anything general about it.
In fact I'm probably rarely in a situation where it even comes up. And this goes for many of the questions.


Then there's this one:
"You readily help people when asking nothing in return".

In comparison to what people normally do, I do help others more often (and believe me, I don't see myself as better or worse; it's just a fact that I do help more in general than most NTs do). From time to time I do it a lot, but definitely don't do it all the time, and I'm learning to do it less (because I'm tired of ending up in situations where people try to take advantage of me - thinking I'm weak, what ever weakness and help has to do with one another, but that's how it's interpreted -, which they can't, but which takes a lot of energy for me to hinder, and that's very tiring).

But to say just as in per se that I help others and ask nothing in return (well, I never ask anything in return when I help. I ask for something when I need it, and that's got nothing to do with helping others) is plain wrong. I really generally don't help others, and that's a fact even if I do help more than most people do.
- Also, the "readily" part "you READILY help..." that doesn't fit me. Often I don't help readily, unless I can see it's necessary that I act fast in order for it to be a help. Instead I can sometimes think "Aarh, not again, not now!" and go slowly to it (at least mentally). So 'readily'? No.

So I answered No.

Yet I feel helping others is such an unusual thing in our time so I'm not sure if I answered correctly. Even the fact that they ask this shows that it isn't something that fits naturally into everyday life for most.


"You like to keep check on how things are progressing".

"No, I like to do a job but don't want to know when it's finished or if I made mistakes along the way. No, I hate to keep track on how I progress".

C'mon, lol.

How could I not keep check on how things progress? Everybody does that!, all the time!! It's not even worth a question. Why do they ask this??
So honestly: Of course I like to keep check on how things are progressing. :D

After having posted and written a bit about this new experience with the Myers/Briggs test (the new thing being that I wasn't a rarity but on the contrary among those there are most of: INTJ), I realized pretty quickly that the common thing for us is our having Asperger's Syndrome.

And what I like about the whole thing is, that more than a lot of other things that can - and will - be said, the massive recurrence of the same personality type only adds to the likelihood that I am right when I say that Asperger's Syndrome is not a "syndrome" in the traditional sense of that word. It is a Personality Type!

Okay, we may be autists in some sense and to a certain degree (which no doubt is different for each of us. And I was diagnosed with autism as a small child). But my claim is that autism is a trait on a scale which is part of every human being's personal make-up. It's not a question wether or not austism exists in all human beings, only if it exists to such an extent as to make itself noticed and/or to represent a problem (to the person themself or/and to their surroundings).

Well I am a type that is rare both IRL and here. Of course I'm not a Autist either. You feel like a very bright Autist.

Yeah, me too, but probably for very different reasons.

I'm glad this thing entertained you.

Your Type is
ISTJ

Introverted - 89%
Sensing - 1%
Thinking - 25%
Judging - 67%

You are:
* very expressed introvert
* slightly expressed sensing personality
* moderately expressed thinking personality
* distinctively expressed judging personality


I made an interesting note as I read trough this topic. Most of us ISTJ's who copied those percentages in their reply, had only 1% in that Sensing part. That's as if we would be very close to this INTJ majority of this forum yet slightly less intuitive. I really don't think it's a coincidence as it's so clear that majority of autistic people, who've done this test, are most likely to get INTx as result.

I'd love to find out how this S-percentage acts within neurotypical ISTJ's - is it, on average, more or less 50%? Still, there should be more than 11% of us ISTJ's among whole population and if autists tend to be more likely intuitive than sensing, it'd seem obvious to me that autistic person, who's sensing instead of intuitive, would be more likely much less sensing than the majority of sensing nt's.

Ps. I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say. Writing is not my number one skill, especially when done so in some foreign language.


I usually get either INTJ but I have got ISTJ and you're right, it's only ever ISTJ by 1%.

I am curious. Have you tried the rdos Aspie-quiz recently. It is now reporting MBTI, or it was, along with the Aspie vs. Neurotypical score. I found his version of the MBTI questions more subtle, not so obvious what attribute it is trying to test, and I didn't find myself wanting to say, "none of the above", or "that depends" quite so often, and it even reported my type correctly. If you have never taken it before, you might enjoy this one too. There are threads on this forum about this test, or you can find it in Google, or you can find the test here: http://www.rdos.net/eng/Aspie-quiz.php And if you find yourself with nothing better to do, you may or may not find this of interest also http://www.rdos.net/eng/asperger.htm#Aspie-quiz

I found a list of various personality tests ... I haven't had time to check them out yet, but right off it seemed promising.
Here's the URL:

http://similarminds.com/personality_tests.html

*******

Mdyar,

yes, true enough. I've noticed the same thing.
And yet I think that the more aware you become of the pattern in your past choices, the more conscious you have a chance to be about what you chose to do in the present (which is another way to say The Future).

*******

The Myers/Briggs test that my result posted here is based on was taken here:

http://humanmetrics.com


As you can see it is the test I mentioned which has a main focus on the job market. - However, when you've taken it there are other tests that focus on other aspects of life than work, such as marriage.

*******

And in relation to my result I found a site that I find pretty interesting. It describes other personality types in relation to your own type (which ever type you may have).
This URL directs you to the types relating to the INTJ personality, but you can navigate to your own type and take it from there. There's a complete list at the top of the page.
Here goes:

http://typology.com

*******

I also found a few fora for Personality Types, among others were three for INTJ:

http://intjforum.com

And another forum which has boards for each personality type as well as cross-personality boards, such as f.ex. types with N(iNtuitive)T(Thinking):

personalityCafe

*******

Maybe I mentioned this before, but I'll do so again (just in case): In at least one of the INTJ fora was a debate about the connection between Asperger's Syndrome and INTJ. It didn't seem to originate from an aspie forum, but you may want to take a look yourself ... here:

INTJ and Asperger's Syndrome

*******

Good luck. ^L^,

Puzelle.

Willmark,

great! I'll go and take the test right away and get back with the result.

*******

Did I mention that I used to get INFJ some years back?
Where as I could see why I got that result, I never felt it really covered all of what I feel signify my personality.
In a sense I still feel that way with the INTJ result, though I'm not really bothered about it.

Yet, it could seem like when you're not bothered by anything in the description of your proposed personality, then it is probably correct, since most of the people I see writing in the MBTI fora about having difficulty finding their personality base it on not feelinb content with the description ... at least so more than feeling the description was plain wrong.

But I won't buy the assumption right off. Not feeling the result is actually descriptively wrong is not the same as saying 'Then it must be Correct'!

I wouldn't be overly surprised if I in ten years or fifteen years from now the result will have shifted again.

After all the shift from INFJ to INTJ is in a few percent, and I am trying to grow as a person, which I assume will also change me to a certain degree.

Who knows, I may end up as an ENTJ. :-D

That test is a joke.

The online test IS a joke... But the typing system itself is pretty accurate. There's a two hour test you can take (but you do have to pay for it, of course). With so many questions, it will be almost impossible for your type to come out wrong.

I go to a group where we only discuss Myers-Briggs. It's my secondary special interest. It's very interesting, a lot to talk about. Even though it's a labelling system, it really helps you understand yourself and others around you.

I noticed he took the MBTI portion back off again. Oh well, sorry.
