DT Forums, what is your personality type?

This is known to be the best (or one of the best) personality test(s) out there. If you're interested, feel free to share.

I'm INTP, by the way.

I'm a weirdo. 

I'm an EXFP, which I've been told isn't possible...but whatever.

My mother is an ESFP, and I actually default to an ESFP myself.   But the biggest influences in my life (my father, best best and closest friends, both my current wife and my ex) were all N's.   The strong influence over the course of my lifetime has totally changed the way I think.    When I test, my results come out ENFP...but with about a 55/45 split on the N/S questions.    And everyone that has interacted with me says that my outward personality leans toward ESFP.   So I gave up and just adopted the EXFP tag.

I knew I would be introverted. That's just a given.

ISFJ-T. 

My results have changed quite a lot since the last time I took a test like this.  It's actually amazing how much I've changed (or learned about myself) in the past eleven months.

What a curious thing, I had several times thought of making this thread since I discovered the site. :P

My personality: INTJ - Turbulent. I'm still surprised at how precise the test results are - they have helped me learn a lot about myself.

INTP-T. I think I used to get INTJ on these long ago, I can't remember.

The description beneath is so close to spot on for me that it's scary.

Yeah, I feel the same way.  I found this site like a week ago.  Strange for me, since I usually over analyze everything and try to figure everything out and I would think I would have found that site by now but...I guess not.

Yes, it really was a bit scary to read that.  I thought I was reading about my life, I mean INTP is EXACTLY how I think.  It's amazing.

I did the official Myers Briggs a couple of years ago and got ENTJ, but none of them were very strong.

E - I'm somewhat into the extrovert end of the spectrum, but not that far, and certainly exhibit a lot of introvert qualities as well.

N - This was the strongest I think - I definitely look at themes and patterns, but at the same time I'm also an empiricist who relies on factual evidence, so there's definitely some S in there as well.

T - Again not very strong, I prefer to act on logic and reason but often go with instinct and judgement as well.

J - Basically bang in the middle on this, but technically came down on the J side. If I took 20 different tests I'd probably get P half the time.

I think we've had this thread at least 3-4 times but it's always fun  :lol

I pretty much always get the same, INFP-T, "the diplomat" and "turbulent" variant. Very accurate for me. I like how this one has those scales. I only got 6% toward introvert, which I think is pretty accurate. I easily go into hermit mode and get easily drained by people but I am still very social. The rest of them are less "on the fence."
Oh Jackie, always jumping to the most homoerotic possibility.

ENTJ-A "The Commander"

I've taken this sort of test a few times and always come up with one of ENTJ or INTJ. This test scored me unusually high in extroversion; most tests score me as 5-10% extroverted, whereas this one put me up at 50%.

The description nearly has me spot-on, although I do think of myself as more sympathetic and patient than what was described in my results. Efficiency has always played an important role in the amount of respect I have for a person because I strive for maximum efficiency myself. "The underlying thought running through the ENTJ mind might be something like 'I don't care if you call me an insensitive b*****d, as long as I remain an efficient b*****d.'" I'm pretty sure I've said those exact words before.

Just took a test again and it said I'm ENFJ with only a 1% preference to E over I. So who even knows?

Ahhh...Myers-Briggs. I love it. Spot on for me.

 I've been an ENTP-A most of my life.

 I think I first found that out in high school. I've probably taken the test 5 or 6 times since then. I haven't taken it in many years now; so I expected the results to change at least a little bit as we tend to grow softer with age. But nope. This time it was the same. ENTP-A.  :metal

Another awesome test, and one that I believe would make the world a much better place if we focused on it is the "Strengthsfinder" test. Set up by Gallup, with over 60 years of research- it truly focuses in on an individuals strengths or as they call them "talents". I have used it in my personal life as first an employee and then as an author, husband, and father. I really believe it helped me be a better parent to my son. I had him take the test when he was 12, and again last year. It really helped him understand to work on focusing on and seeking out opportunities to utilize his strengths and not his weaknesses.

In the United States, we have this almost pathological need to point out faults in ourselves and each other. Corporations are built on focusing on and eliminating the weaknesses of their employees. In our culture we're practically taught this from birth. Dog eat Dog; only the strong survive; take no prisoners; eliminate the weak...Its really bad.

I'll give you an example of how it happens every day.

For all of you parents out there---if your son or daughter came home with a report card with the following grades, how would you honestly react:

MATHS: F
LANGUAGE ARTS: B
SCIENCE: A
HISTORY: C
READING: A
ART: C

What would you do? If you're honest, most of you would freak out on the F grade in Maths (I know it's MATH, I just wanted the Brits to feel good so I called it maths).

So you'd get little Johnny a tutor perhaps, or make him spend extra time at home on maths during homework, or you'd threaten him by taking away privileges, or maybe go to see his math teacher, or call a guidance counselor. If you're like some parents you'd even go to the family doctor to have Johnny tested for ADhD. So Johnny would REALLY then struggle mightily to get the F grade up to a passing grade. He'd work tirelessly on improving his grade. And while you as a parent shouldn't ignore the F; even with all that extra work, little Johnny pulls that grade up to a.....D, or maybe if he's lucky a C. Instead, what you should do is, of course get Johnny help with his Maths (you can't ignore it..it's important); but more importantly focus the bulk of the work and attention on his strengths. Help him develop that which he's already strongest in to help him further develop his talents and skills. Help Johnny really soar in what he's great at with his Science and Reading.

Strengthsfinders focuses on an individuals personality strengths and characteristics. Which is what more companies and society as a whole should really be focusing on instead of what it does today.

If you get the chance, buy the book and take the test. It could just change your life.

With Strengthsfinder it gives you your top five strengths or more appropriately Talents, out of 34 possibilities.

Mine are:
1. Ideation-- People strong in the Ideation theme are fascinated by ideas. They are able to find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena.
2. Individualization-- People strong in the Individualization theme are intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. They have a gift for figuring out how people who are different can work together productively.
3. Input-- People strong in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information.
4. Strategic-- People strong in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.
5. Woo-- People strong in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person.

INTP here. Was INTJ and one point and ENTP at another. I really can't fault that because I've changed a lot over the years and INTP probably does suit me best.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces
