What's your personality type?

Postby bdog » Tue Jul 03, 2012 2:41 pm

Took a Myers Briggs test this morning and found out mine is INTJ:

INTJ strengths mostly revolve around their intelligence, determination and confidence. However, it is also important to note that each strength can easily become a weakness if the INTJ is not careful.

INTJ strengths:

Immune to conflict, criticism and emotional manipulation
Confident in their abilities and knowledge
Very strong drive and determination
Serious attitude towards relationships and responsibilities
Excellent ability to listen
Usually very talented and insightful
Able to swiftly terminate the relationship when necessary (INTJ will devote a lot of time to analysing the situation before and after)
Desire to constantly improve relations

INTJ weaknesses, on the other hand, mostly focus on their lower emotional sensitivity and a sense of intellectual superiority. If you are an INTJ, you are probably thinking that there is nothing negative about these “weaknesses” – however, they should be recognised and addressed because the INTJ personality tends to be quite “black and white”, which is not always beneficial.

INTJ weaknesses:

Poor understanding of emotions – INTJ can sometimes be insensitive
Preferred reaction to any conflict – cold logic and rationality rather than the emotional support, which may be more desirable
Tendency to believe that they are always right
Unwillingness or inability to accept blame
Constant urge to improve everything could complicate relations
Tendency to be fixated about the privacy and personal space

INTPs are pensive, analytical folks. They may venture so deeply into thought as to seem detached, and often actually are oblivious to the world around them.

Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off. While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists.

INTPs are relatively easy-going and amenable to almost anything until their principles are violated, about which they may become outspoken and inflexible. They prefer to return, however, to a reserved albeit benign ambiance, not wishing to make spectacles of themselves.

Apart from the fact that Walter has access to my Facebook page, and is therefore disqualified, he is also wrong.

Nyah.

Another INTJ over here - and I think that description is accurate - the good, the bad, and the ugly. I once worked on a team for six weeks that was all INTJ and things got ugly by the end. We don't always play well with others. :?

On a team of 10 people there should probably only be 1, maybe 2 people on it that work like me.

More than that is irritating because too many people are questioning dumb ass management decisions. Less than that and everyone is looking at each other for direction and not getting any.

Here were my results. Seems fairly accurate to me but I don't understand the famous Repubs like me. I'm a Dem:

ISTJ Introvert(89%) Sensing(1%) Thinking(62%) Judging(22%)
* You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
* You have marginal or no preference of Sensing over Intuition (1%)
* You have distinctive preference of Thinking over Feeling (62%)
* You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (22%)

Famous Personalities Sharing Your Type
* Lance Armstrong, professional road racing cyclist
* Warren Buffet, an American business magnate,investor, and philanthropist
* Donald Rumsfeld, an American 13th and 21st Secretary of Defense
* Greta Garbo, an actress
U.S. Presidents: George Washington Andrew Johnson Benjamin Harrison Herbert Hoover George H. W. Bush. (Egads, please tell me I'm not like Hoover, Bush, and Rumsfield).
Paul Coverdale (U.S. Senator, R-GA) Jackie Joyner-Kersee (U.S. Olympic athlete), Evander Holyfield, heavyweight boxing champion

Due to their natural strengths ISTJs often find themselves in occupations that involve effective control of production process, good understanding of details, clear-cut planning, require responsibility and being an efficient worker. They are found across a wide range of industries and verticals, in organizations of all sizes. ISTJs succeed as military and police workers, engineers, auditors, lawyers, surgeons. They are found in technology companies among those who deal with practical aspects of technology (e.g. implementation specialists). ISTJs make good project managers, mid-rank managers, department heads.

I always thought Myers-Briggs was kind of a joke, like sorting people into 16 different groups suddenly makes it more accurate than 2 groups. I came out ESTJ this time.

I noticed that I was trying to analyze some of the questions as I was answering them, to guess how they would change my score. I also kept checking how many were left. I suspect that those two things are more telling than the actual score anyway.
