Introverts have more fun.  This is tautologically provable by any psychologist.  In fact, that's why introverts need more time off on their own, because they have so much fun they power down and need to recharge.

I am proof positive of that. I challenge any motherfucker to a fun contest. TO THE DEATH.

Phox  will accept this challenge.  :fap:

I looked into it a bit, and found that out of the four functions Sensing, iNtuitive, Thinking and Feeling, one tends to be dominant and supported by the others in order of their dominance, as well as supported by the Introverted or Extraverted attitudes.
 
In my case, this means Extraverted Intuition. The descriptions of this I've found online are quite accurate. This is probably more the Forer effect at work than anything else, but I advise you guys to look into your MBT a little deeper and see if it rings true.

Oops, i almost forgot every system of characterisation is inherently bad.

BTW, I'd like to remind people to refer to me with the terms 'em' and 'hir' to avoid being gender typecast.

Ah, but they are incredibly useful in certain ways!

if you take a personality test like the MBTI repeatedly over the years, you can document -- in very specific and internally consistent ways -- how your personality changes over time

systems that have more dynamic characterizations, like Leary's Interpersonal Circumplex, are really helpful for describing group behaviors

http://artofmemetics.com/memetics/page29.html
http://artofmemetics.com/memetics/page55.html

Or, more accurately, who you think you are over time. The test is flawed like that.

Well, yes, but also, no. Because what you think your personality is, is not only a clouded image of what your personality actually is, but it's also part of your personality. So maybe you won't get the entire picture, but at least it's got a strange loop in it, and that's beautiful.

Think for yourself, but first please classify yourself according to this system so we know what you should be thinking for yourself.

I had a career counselor give me this test once. It was about as helpful as one of those fb tests that tell you what kind of pizza you are.

I had an employer ask me to take it.  I intentionally made my answers cancel each other out.  I took that damn test 3 times, and he finally gave up.

Administering the test to oneself repeatedly over time increases sample size to an extent that rivals the accuracy of a double-blind experiment, sources say.

The best it can do, IMO, is tell you the kind of person you THINK you are, or WANT to be.

Which is about as useful as astrology.

I remember taking it for the first time when I was still a teenager. I think it came out INFP or something. I've taken it several times in the 20 something years since that first time, and the only letter that has always stayed the same is the I. I couldn't even tell you what any of the other letters even mean, but I know the 'I' means I don't like people. I didn't need a test for that.
