Mine is ZOMG23PINEALWTFBBQ.  The test is retarded, though, since I disagreed with the wording of every single question.

Also, to the OP, for your information we are all big black gay cowboys and although we are predominately Jewish Islamic Appologists, we are not circumcised because we think circumcised cocks taste funny.

I got INTJ on the test I posted and INTP on Cain's link.  Interesting.

OMFG, I was actually thinking about making a post on this myself since my girlfriend got me to do the test and I was starting to think the same thoughts about whether there would be certain personality types that are predisposed to discordianism...

Anyway, I happen to be a weird one, because I fall both into ENTP and ENFP, since my T+F score was extremely low, favouring F but I am very much a T as well.

I think there should be personality types for those that fall into two areas like me, and I do fit into both very well.

ENFP

I have taken this test multiple times, both the actual and the online ones... I always end up ENFP or INFP with ~10% or so sway between E and I (6x% to 5x% usually)

General: ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on bo th an individual and a humanitarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another.

Social/Personal Relationships: ENFPs have a great deal of zany charm, which can ingratiate them to the more stodgy types in spite of their unconventionality. They are outgoing, fun, and genuinely like people. As SOs/mates they are warm, affectionate (l ots of PDA), and disconcertingly spontaneous. However, attention span in relationships can be short; ENFPs are easily intrigued and distracted by new friends and acquaintances, forgetting about the older ones for long stretches at a time. Less mature ENFPs may need to feel they are the center of attention all the time, to reassure them that everyone thinks they're a wonderful and fascinating person.

ENFPs often have strong, if unconvential, convictions on various issues related to their Cosmic View. They usually try to use their social skills and contacts to persuade people gently of the rightness of these views; his sometimes results in their negle cting their nearest and dearest while flitting around trying to save the world.
Work Environment: ENFPs are pleasant, easygoing, and usually fun to work with. They come up with great ideas, and are a major asset in brainstorming sessions. Followthrough tends to be a problem, however; they tend to get bored quickly, especially if a newer, more interesting project comes along. They also tend to be procrastinators, both about meeting hard deadlines and about performing any small, uninteresting tasks that they've been assigned. ENFPs are at their most useful when working in a group w ith a J or two to take up the slack.

ENFPs hate bureaucracy, both in principle and in practice; they will always make a point of launching one of their crusades against some aspect of it.

"The ENFJ may feel quite lonely even when surrounded by people. This feeling of aloneness may be exacerbated by the tendency to not reveal their true selves."

ah ok, T/F is thinking/feeling.

that makes sense because i try to find balance between those two.

i think deep down inside i'm a thinker, but certain things have made me realize feeling is just as important so i try to push back a little (certain things = Goedel Incompleteness Theorem and Love, btw)

Wow, that's a lot of replies.  If you're trying to figure out what your personality type "means" (if anything) make sure you check all the ones that are one letter off and the one that is diametrically opposite of yours.  Also keep the Forer Effect in mind.

There are a lot of different versions of the test, ranging from pop-psychology garbage you'd expect to find in an issue of Seventeen to very serious, very long, very thorough tests that take  an hour or more to take.  I didn't give a specific online quiz in the OP because I didn't know any that were good.

Because I love you man, ok, heres the highlights-

With Extraverted Intuition dominating their personality, the ENTP's primary interest in life is understanding the world that they live in. They are constantly absorbing ideas and images about the situations they are presented in their lives. Using their intuition to process this information, they are usually extremely quick and accurate in their ability to size up a situation. With the exception of their ENFP cousin, the ENTP has a deeper understanding of their environment than any of the other types.

ENTPs are fluent conversationalists, mentally quick, and enjoy verbal sparring with others. They love to debate issues, and may even switch sides sometimes just for the love of the debate. When they express their underlying principles, however, they may feel awkward and speak abruptly and intensely.

Under stress, the ENTP may lose their ability to generate possibilities, and become obsessed with minor details. These details may seem to be extremely important to the ENTP, but in reality are usually not important to the big picture.

In general, ENTPs are upbeat visionaries. They highly value knowledge, and spend much of their lives seeking a higher understanding. They live in the world of possibilities, and become excited about concepts, challenges and difficulties. When presented with a problem, they're good at improvising and quickly come up with a creative solution. Creative, clever, curious, and theoretical, ENTPs have a broad range of possibilities in their lives.

"Portrait of an INFJ - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging
(Introverted Intuition with Extraverted Feeling)
The Protector

As an INFJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you take things in primarily via intuition. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit with your personal value system.

INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types.

INFJs place great importance on havings things orderly and systematic in their outer world. They put a lot of energy into identifying the best system for getting things done, and constantly define and re-define the priorities in their lives. On the other hand, INFJs operate within themselves on an intuitive basis which is entirely spontaneous. They know things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. They are usually right, and they usually know it. Consequently, INFJs put a tremendous amount of faith into their instincts and intuitions. This is something of a conflict between the inner and outer worlds, and may result in the INFJ not being as organized as other Judging types tend to be. Or we may see some signs of disarray in an otherwise orderly tendency, such as a consistently messy desk.

INFJs have uncanny insight into people and situations. They get "feelings" about things and intuitively understand them. As an extreme example, some INFJs report experiences of a psychic nature, such as getting strong feelings about there being a problem with a loved one, and discovering later that they were in a car accident. This is the sort of thing that other types may scorn and scoff at, and the INFJ themself does not really understand their intuition at a level which can be verbalized. Consequently, most INFJs are protective of their inner selves, sharing only what they choose to share when they choose to share it. They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive.

But the INFJ is as genuinely warm as they are complex. INFJs hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. INFJs are concerned for people's feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive the normally peaceful INFJ into a state of agitation or charged anger. They may tend to internalize conflict into their bodies, and experience health problems when under a lot of stress.

Because the INFJ has such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in an INFJ stubborness and tendency to ignore other people's opinions. They believe that they're right. On the other hand, INFJ is a perfectionist who doubts that they are living up to their full potential. INFJs are rarely at complete peace with themselves - there's always something else they should be doing to improve themselves and the world around them. They believe in constant growth, and don't often take time to revel in their accomplishments. They have strong value systems, and need to live their lives in accordance with what they feel is right. In deference to the Feeling aspect of their personalities, INFJs are in some ways gentle and easy going. Conversely, they have very high expectations of themselves, and frequently of their families. They don't believe in compromising their ideals.

INFJ is a natural nurturer; patient, devoted and protective. They make loving parents and usually have strong bonds with their offspring. They have high expectations of their children, and push them to be the best that they can be. This can sometimes manifest itself in the INFJ being hard-nosed and stubborn. But generally, children of an INFJ get devoted and sincere parental guidance, combined with deep caring.

In the workplace, the INFJ usually shows up in areas where they can be creative and somewhat independent. They have a natural affinity for art, and many excel in the sciences, where they make use of their intuition. INFJs can also be found in service-oriented professions. They are not good at dealing with minutia or very detailed tasks. The INFJ will either avoid such things, or else go to the other extreme and become enveloped in the details to the extent that they can no longer see the big picture. An INFJ who has gone the route of becoming meticulous about details may be highly critical of other individuals who are not.

The INFJ individual is gifted in ways that other types are not. Life is not necessarily easy for the INFJ, but they are capable of great depth of feeling and personal achievement. "

I'm sortof torn on personality tests.  I find them fascinating, especially of people I've known a long time, but I'm also suspicious of them, especially if its only the person themselves who can see the resemblance.

Tests in general are imperfect things.  They can give feedback on only very specific, and often unintended areas.  They have their uses, but take them with a grain of salt.

Hey Cram, you'll know this.  Whats the name of that effect where people selectively ignore the negative or erroneous stuff when their personality is being described?  You know, like with astrology and stuff?

The Forer Effect.

True.  Thankfully, with this one my family also thinks the personality fits.  Although, I didn't take the particular test linked to.  I've taken it before and have consistently gotten the same result.

I actually am amused partly because that description of INFJ was the most flattering one I've ever seen. It completely omitted the dictatorial, pigheaded, contrary, elitist, steamroller aspects of the personality type.

Then again, I almost imagine that each "type" would require a whole book for really substantive description, and like you, I'm not sure how much stock I put in the whole thing (except that I've consistently tested INFJ for years, and it does describe me fairly accurately... or at least, it describes how I see myself fairly accurately.)

IIRC, INTPs make up about 1-2% of the general population.  We have 5.

Seems pretty obvious now that us Sensing people don't often get it. A lot of the "literature" is geared more toward that Intuitive brand of thinking. Think for Yourself, Shmuck...appeals very well to the Intuitive mind, but not so well to the Sensing mind. The Sensing person is looking for concrete, specific examples. We're more likely to ask what you want us to think about. :roll:

ES and IS seem very rare.  The distribution is interesting, I have to admit.

And yes, I know the Myers-Briggs test is pretty abitrary in places, but looking at the distribution suggests there may be something interesting going on.

I suggest doing an enneagram personality test next, and seeing if we only get a certain range of results as well.  I also suggest recording these results and redoing the tests every few months as well.  The Art of Memetics suggests this, so you can understand the group you work with better, and cover weaknesses in your approach.

Who I am at work is different than who I am when playing music is different than who I am when trolling is different than who I am when cooking is different than who I am when fucking is different than who I am drunk.

Um, did you take the test?

It asks fairly situational based questions (at least, the one I linked did) and is less about what you do than how you relate to and process reactions your surroundings.

Personality profiling is painting yourself into a corner any way you look at it.

If you conform to one of these modern day zodiac signs it should be suggesting to you that you've got limitations you should be looking to overcome.

That said, most of humanity are stuck in one of these boxes and it's worth researching the different manipulation approaches in order to gain maximum lulz when interacting with them.

Yeah, but I think LMNO has a point.  I mean, if you are in a good jovial mood, you might tend to rate yourself higher on how outgoing you are, or how easy it is for you to meet new people.  Meanwhile, if you are down in the dumps, you might rate yourself lower.  I mean, I imagine there wouldn't be a huge flucuation, but I could see where it can waver a bit depending on moods.

I've taken the test a few times, and it changes depending what state I'm in when I'm thinking about how I would react in other situations.

That is, the way I'm looking at the world changes the way I consider what I "would" do in a given situation.

I'm less interested in conforming as I am in using them to think about possible areas of weakness in our interactions with others.  I've already said I have doubts about their overall usefullness, but if it gives me a model to think about the sort of people we appeal to, and possible communication issues, then I am willing to ignore that to see if we can improve those areas somewhat.

After all, you cant effect people unless you can communicate in a way they like.

I'd be alarmed if I did fall into one of these categories. I took the test by answering "very inaccurate" to all the questions. Might sound like a cop out but, in all honestly, none of those statements apply to me more than 50% of the time. I put a great deal of time and effort into shifting my attitudes around as much a possible largely to avoid exactly this kind of stagnation.

Interesting.

That does tend to fall into what we've got so far (IN, EN, TP) but also has a few which have been less common.

I want to look into some academic papers dealing with theories of how they relate the different groupings to each other but, naturally, I wont have access to them for another week or so.  Still, I could probably draw some wildly simple conclusions which may take us somewhere of interest.

but there's 16 personality types.

so on equal distribution that would give 6.25% to each.

3.5% is not that much of a deviation.

also, with 29 voters so far, distributed over 19 choices, there is hardly any statistical significance in it.

Well I went by if it applied to me more often than other options did.  Its not perfect, but nothing is.  And besides, other people are probably going to be far more stable in their personality types than people here.  So if we can understand how to speak their language, and relate to their thinking, and it works....well, more power to us.  If not, back to the drawing board.

I think what would be more interesting would be to answer those question about other people.

For example, When I got the INTP score, Mrs LMNO couldn't believe I was an introvert, because I'm often quite social and talkative at cocktail parties.

She also doesn't quite buy the Intuitive part, because she considers me to be quite logical.

Well, introvert means you think about what you do and why you do it and generally have an expansive internal dialogue.  It doesn't necessarily mean a shut in.  Also, INTPs, in the classical analysis, usually apply logic and structure to philosophy or mathematics or sciences, but when it comes to dealing with others, rely more on intuition than theories of what people should do.

A lot of the sites are really, really bad at explaining the complexities of the different types.  I was fortunate enough to do personality types as a first year Psych course at a pretty scientific orientated department, so we went more in depth into this sort of thing.

And yes, it may be more interesting and ultimately useful to use it to typify others.  To a degree, of course.

Your type is: ENTP

ENTP - "Inventor". Enthusiastic interest in everything and always sensitive to possibilities. Non-conformist and innovative. 3.2% of the total population.


I guess that checks out.

Only if you try to conform to whatever personality type you're listed as.  I'm INTJ, which is one of the loner types and I do try (at times) to act more and more social.  I've had some moderate to low success.

If we could get a decent sample size we may be able to find a common trait in discordians.  Or not, who the hell knows.

I agree socializing yourself does get odd at times.

Chiming in a bit late, I'm an INTP, and have been every time I've taken this particular test over the years.

I wouldn't put a ton of weight behind a 25 or 30-question test with limited answers - if you want a full psych profile, it needs a LOT more data and reactions to specific situations and environments. This is just a vague, general kind of overall approach rather than a "this is what you are and shall forever be!" kind of thing.

Fun though  :D

For here is the central goal of the INTP: to understand and seek truth.

Now, that's definitely not something that is specific to Discordians, but I'd say it IS something that most of us share - why the hell else would we waste our time reading and listening to the ramblings of acid-heads from 40 or 50 years ago?

I too have some gripes with the actual test questions and answers, but I feel that it's a reasonably accurate system of personality types, personally anyway, since I've tried it on a few other people and have had results that were pretty much spot on.

The main problem with the system though is that its quite possible to fall into 2-4 different catagories, depending on how strong your percentage for a particular personality indicator is.

For example, my girlfriend, who got me to do the test the other day, is very familiar with it herself and before I did it, claimed that she was sure that I'd be an EN*P, because she couldn't work out if I was more F or T. Turned out when I did the test she was spot on- I ended up classified literally as a ENTP, but my % for T was extremely low, at about 5%, and so it can be taken that really, I could be either, and so both personality types have to be taken into consideration, and not surprisingly, both described me very well for the most part. Rather then have contradiction information, it turned out both seemed to compliment each other quite well, which I personally feel makes sense.

But you know, whatever.

It's a model and as such its not gonna perfectly represent the territory ;-)

However, I've taken the test several times in multiple forms (both administered by a psychologist and online). My personality has always shown up as *NFP, with the E or I varying by less than 10%. The first time I took the test was about 8 years ago I think.

Mosbunal of my friends who have looked at the description of an ENFP (or INFP), think it matches me to a 'T'.

However, I doubt Jung would argue that any variation of these sorts of tests would identify WHO we are... rather it would, at best, give us a snapshot of how we perceived ourselves to be... lots of snapshots that correlate might give us a better, though not complete, view of what our personality type might be ordered/modeled/labeled as.

Hows this for revenge... I took a stab at what I thought TGRR might be- ENTJ, and well...

Quote
As an ENTJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. They are "take charge" people.

There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. ENTJs, like many types, have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. Unlike other types, ENTJs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as the ENTJ. The ENTJ needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings. In the absence of this awareness, the ENTJ will be a forceful, intimidating and overbearing individual. This may be a real problem for the ENTJ, who may be deprived of important information and collaboration from others. In their personal world, it can make some ENTJs overbearing as spouses or parents.

The ENTJ has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for them as a force towards achieving their goals. However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement, which the ENTJ would do well to avoid.

ENTJs are very forceful, decisive individuals. They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world.

Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems.

ENTJs love to interact with people. As Extroverts, they're energized and stimulated primarily externally. There's nothing more enjoyable and satisfying to the ENTJ than having a lively, challenging conversation. They especially respect people who are able to stand up to the ENTJ, and argue persuasively for their point of view. There aren't too many people who will do so, however, because the ENTJ is a very forceful and dynamic presence who has a tremendous amount of self-confidence and excellent verbal communication skills. Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ.

The ENTJ has many gifts which make it possible for them to have a great deal of personal power, if they don't forget to remain balanced in their lives. The are assertive, innovative, long-range thinkers with an excellent ability to translate theories and possibilities into solid plans of action. They are usually tremendously forceful personalities, and have the tools to accomplish whatever goals they set out for.

SUCK ON IT TGRR.

I've heard that it's common for people to test as different types at different times.

That said, some of the variation in types can be attributed to how honest you're being with yourself. I would fudge my own answers...for instance, up until very recently. I often tested as INFJ, because I knew that introversion/extroversion has to do with where you get your energy from...and I was in denial about the fact that I really don't need so much alone time, and tend to feel more energetic by being around people. Same thing with the iNtuition/Sensing bit. I'd answer the questions according to what I wanted to be, rather than how I really am.

I have to say that the first time I took it answering honestly, I was like "no! that's not me!"...knowing full well that it was.  :x

Well, the fact is, you do have different personality types as you grow up and start seeing and acting in different ways.
I know about 7 years ago, I'd have been most likely INFJ or so, but as I grew up I found certain ways of thinking and acting benefited me more then the way I was currently doing things.
And I do believe that with the right type of person, its quite possible to change overnight or perhaps even every few hours...

I don't know if you'll find something that may point more towards discordianism, but maybe different kinds of the posters we have here.
See if you can go back and find out who fell into what category and see if there are similarities between those posters, or try to connect it to Cain's AoS/Chaotician* types or similar ideas.

I downloaded it, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet.  Probably will this weekend, unless I devour my roommate's Neal Stephenson collection.


My personality type is nearly perfectly consistently and strongly an INTP whenever I test.  As far as why we have so many INTPs and people who are one step away from INTP the best explanation I can think of is that INTPs tend to gravitate towards each other, and that the whole notion of the BIP fits pretty well with people whose world is mostly internal.

I use the personality profiles as a starting point for introspection.  Some things fit me, others don't - but having a set of characteristics in front of me to think about can definitely help, especially when identifying weaknesses.  The other thing it lets you do is read self-descriptions by other people who might think similarly to you; they might vocalize something that you know is true about yourself but couldn't quite pin down.

In theory, it would seem to be possible.  I mean, if you could define the emergent personality or egregore (however the fuck its spelt) or the memeplex or whatever.

I know Leary came up with an interpersonal tool for analyzing the relationship within groups, so this would seem to be the next logical step.

I had a passing interest in MBTI tests awhile ago.

I've gotten INFP for the last couple of years,  I got INTP when I was younger but that might of been because I kept my feelings locked up and almost never let out (I basically bought in to the men are tough and never show emotions and other macho nonsense when I was younger and tried to act that way.)

I'm also not at all surprised that we have lots of N's and P's here.  S's  tends to like "facts" and J's tend to like have everything planed out so chaos would be a nightmare to them.

my other predictions are:
Cabages tend to be S's.   
Greyfaces tend to be SJ's.

My opinions on the test are that it can easily be wrong and doesn't carry that much wieght, but it can give you some insights into how different people think.

I am going into psychology, and I guess I will find out soon enough, or I could do the research, but while I am searching I will leave this question.

I guess this would fall along the lines of everything that discordianism strives against, but do any test results cause individuals to behave the way they believe they should?

I would flesh it out a bit, and I am sure there people who do this, but i would more interested in the test that tests this behavior.

i wasted my time taking both of those and got ISTJ both times.

and it's wrong both times.

bolded parts for WTF-ness.

ok, so most of the personality fits except i certainly do appreciate strangeness it's the careers that got me. although most of the chosen ones do seem my speed, i also enjoy the bolded ones that it says i would not like.

so i guess it isn't completely wrong, underneath the "soccer mom stick up her butt martha stewart" exterior is a loud, fun loving weirdo.... that's also on the exterior. wait....

 :argh!:

Wait, what website did you get that from?

I think personalitypage.com seems to give the best descriptions of the personality types as ironically the sites that actually test and figure out what personality type you belong to seem to be not as good, but just my personal leanings on what I've seen so far...
so try http://www.personalitypage.com/ISTJ.html and see if that's any better or worse.

oh.




well that makes a hell of a lot more sense.

to the point where it's scary accurate.  :tinfoilhat:

Yeah, I thought that might be the case.  8)

I am going into psychology, and I guess I will find out soon enough, or I could do the research, but while I am searching I will leave this question.

I guess this would fall along the lines of everything that discordianism strives against, but do any test results cause individuals to behave the way they believe they should?

I would flesh it out a bit, and I am sure there people who do this, but i would more interested in the test that tests this behavior.

That's an interesting observation.

I remember reading something about how people decide how they think or who they are by looking at their behavior.

So this seems fairly plausible.

However, when I tested as INTP I decided that I'd rather be a more outgoing person. I spent some time cultivating my social skills and low and behold, on a subsequent test I was ENTP and making friends left and right.

I was also told by a social psychologist that introverts and extroverts brains seem to operate in very different ways in response to stimulus. Maybe I was on the borderline of the two to begin with, I don't know.

Quote
As an ENTJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. They are "take charge" people.

There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. ENTJs, like many types, have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. Unlike other types, ENTJs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as the ENTJ. The ENTJ needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings. In the absence of this awareness, the ENTJ will be a forceful, intimidating and overbearing individual. This may be a real problem for the ENTJ, who may be deprived of important information and collaboration from others. In their personal world, it can make some ENTJs overbearing as spouses or parents.

The ENTJ has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for them as a force towards achieving their goals. However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement, which the ENTJ would do well to avoid.

ENTJs are very forceful, decisive individuals. They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world.

Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems.

ENTJs love to interact with people. As Extroverts, they're energized and stimulated primarily externally. There's nothing more enjoyable and satisfying to the ENTJ than having a lively, challenging conversation. They especially respect people who are able to stand up to the ENTJ, and argue persuasively for their point of view. There aren't too many people who will do so, however, because the ENTJ is a very forceful and dynamic presence who has a tremendous amount of self-confidence and excellent verbal communication skills. Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ.

The ENTJ has many gifts which make it possible for them to have a great deal of personal power, if they don't forget to remain balanced in their lives. The are assertive, innovative, long-range thinkers with an excellent ability to translate theories and possibilities into solid plans of action. They are usually tremendously forceful personalities, and have the tools to accomplish whatever goals they set out for.

SUCK ON IT TGRR.

I've heard the final part as well.  Apparently INTPs have a lower threshold to external stimuli, which is why it can sometimes be overwheling, or they feel less need to be as active and outgoing.  However, if you were to purposefully throw yourself into such situations day after day and week after week, I'm sure some sort of resistance to the stimuli would build up.

As for effecting behaviour in general, it could be an interesting experiment.  Give a load of tests to people, and give them totally abitrary results.  Then tell them to observe and note down all behaviour that seems to fall within that personality type for, lets say two weeks.  Keep the real results of their test to yourself, and then administer a second test which sees if they are acting more in accordance with the real result, or the faked one.  For extra mindfucking, reveal their real result at the end of the test.

Post by: Cainad (dec.) on August 13, 2009, 01:13:51 pm
As an INTJ, I propose we go about analyzing and discussing this idea in a plodding and methodological manner that everyone else will find restrictive and boring.

Let's think about the specific components of the MBTI types: there are a lot more Ns than Ss, it seems. If (and that's a pretty big 'if') this is representative of Discordians en masse, why? What are the differences between Intuitive and Sensing personalities, and how can we infect more Sensing-type minds with our horrible ideas?





(also I took the test again and now my personality type is AIDS :sad: )
Title: Re: Meyers-Briggs Personality Type
Post by: LMNO on August 13, 2009, 01:17:47 pm
I would suggest we take the test multiple times, and attempt to answer the questions in such a way that we can specifically choose what result we get.

For example, how would you have to answer the questions to be an INTP, and would a complete reversal of your answers result in ESFJ?

How would you go about getting a result of ENFP?

Etc.

I think this would be useful in becoming flexible with our perceptions.

Title: Re: Meyers-Briggs Personality Type
Post by: Cain on August 13, 2009, 01:18:48 pm
I did that a few years ago.

Not recently, but I used to be able to "project" a personality type quite easily, even on the longest versions of the test.

As far as understanding the archetypes the MB leads towards, definitely.  It will also make such tests useless on you in future.  If you KNOW which result your answers are leading towards, it becomes tricky to take it honestly.  You start to interpret how external factors play on it, so there's a lot of temptation to second guess, tweak, or direct your own results.  

Further, going into other tests, you'll start to notice when MB type questions are interspersed.  Good, when you can recognize, and work with it.  Bad when you understand it less than perfectly, and it starts to mess with how you THINK the test will score you.

BUMP:

retook test
(they say you should retake it over time to track subtle changes in your personality)


got ENTP again


I find this reading (http://typelogic.com/entp.html) eerily accurate

particularly:
Quote
ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport.

ENTPs are as innovative and ingenious at problem-solving as they are at verbal gymnastics; on occasion, however, they manage to outsmart themselves. This can take the form of getting found out at "sharp practice"--ENTPs have been known to cut corners without regard to the rules if it's expedient -- or simply in the collapse of an over-ambitious juggling act. Both at work and at home, ENTPs are very fond of "toys"--physical or intellectual, the more sophisticated the better. They tend to tire of these quickly, however, and move on to new ones.

Quote
In general, ENFJs are charming, warm, gracious, creative and diverse individuals with richly developed insights into what makes other people tick. This special ability to see growth potential in others combined with a genuine drive to help people makes the ENFJ a truly valued individual. As giving and caring as the ENFJ is, they need to remember to value their own needs as well as the needs of others.

I got INTP. I'm skeptical as to the accuracy of this test, but the description does suit me for the most part:
Quote
loner, more interested in intellectual pursuits than relationships or family, wrestles with the meaninglessness of existence, likes esoteric things, disorganized, messy, likes science fiction, can be lonely, observer, private, can't describe feelings easily, detached, likes solitude, not revealing, unemotional, rule breaker, avoidant, familiar with the darkside, skeptical, acts without consulting others, does not think they are weird but others do, socially uncomfortable, abrupt, fantasy prone, does not like happy people, appreciates strangeness, frequently loses things, acts without planning, guarded, not punctual, more likely to support marijuana legalization, not prone to compromise, hard to persuade, relies on mind more than on others, calm

Then again, I've heard that these things have similarities to cold reading, and I've found myself similarly close to descriptions for ISFPs and INFPs. I don't think the result is a specific definition of who one is as a person so much as something roughly akin to a probability cloud. Also, it should be considered that people are different from one moment to the next. Still, that description is an almost perfect summary of my personality. I couldn't describe myself that well.

EDIT: Though I must note that these near-perfect descriptions trouble me, because they remind me of every Emo Teen cliche ever.

The INTJ forum was full of strange types too. There's something incredibly unhealthy about interpreting everything through not just the lens of a personality test, but also a single result of that test. Basically they read the descriptions of every online Myers-Briggs article or test result (there seem to be a half dozen or so that one can easily find through google; they kept quoting the same ones), and defined themselves and their interactions based on those descriptions. So weird.

I don't find it weird at all. Many people actively seek boxes to shove themselves into so they can rest easy "knowing" they belong somewhere. Top 40 music comes to mind. "Oh, I only listen to country/eat organic/use apple cider vinigar." No, you listen to the one radio station/etc. that agees with your pre-packaged sensibilities so you feel snug and safe.

If that box is backed with science (or pseudoscience that sounds compelling), all the better. Any veneer of authenticity.

I'm an ENFP, although I personally don't put a lot of stock in the Meyers Briggs test.  I tend to vacillate between a couple of those categories.  It can be interesting though.

Well, I get that much, but they don't say, Greekologist or Romanologist

But they do say Assyriologist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assyriology).  I think the explanation for this is that we have a tidy little name for Greekology an Romanology as "Classical" but we haven't really got an equivalent for the preceding Egyptian/Assyrian period.

No shit.  I have an Assyrian sister-in-law, who's incidentally married to my half-Iraqi, half-Afghan brother-in-law.  Interesting shit.  She identifies with Assyrian culture more than Iranian/Persian, as well.

That's a really cool culture to have in her background.  I've always found Mesopotamia more interesting than Egypt, their architecture is so much more interesting.  Ziggurats and hanging gardens FTW. 

Yeah, it's pretty much her WHOLE culture, not just her background.  Other than Valley Girl from L.A.  Interesting how she juxtaposes her own Persian-speaking culture with that of her husband's father's.  It reminds me of watching Spanish from Spain speak with Mexicans.  A certain level of disdain and cultural snobbery as well as mutual xenophobia.

Also, Persian chicks are hot as fuck.

169% Troof.

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.

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.

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.

While I would tend to agree with the prevailing sentiment that the test can only tell you how you think you are...

The spread of self-reported types for the forum is pretty interesting.

Discordianism - no Sensors allowed!  :angrymob:

I have tested pretty consistently as INTP over the years, with T and P trending more towards F and J over time as I have become less of a self-consumed asshat.
I think that those people who take the test and cling to the result (and I was one of them for a while) are just uncomfortable in who they are and the box of MBTI gives them some self-definition.

Being able to hit the middle point of a few of the categories or adapt based on circumstance seems to the healthiest mode of being.

EDIT: I also think that the more you read about the methodology of the test it becomes pretty easy to figure out which questions are trying to place you on which scale and that makes repeating it a bit of a farce.

Huh, my results have actually wavered in the last few years, which is interesting.

Like 2 years ago, I took the test and got INTP
and a year before that, the same, INTP

I thought that was what I always was... but then I checked my posts in this thread, and saw I used to regularly get marked as ENTP.
Took the test again this morning.. got another ENTP.


I think it's interesting because I can intuitively sense that my social habits have changed since college, but I'm not entirely sure how. I used to be a lot more extroverted and have sort of slid into a more introverted, isolated lifestyle. But on this mornings' test, I scored pretty close to the cross-over between E and I.



Just want to mention - I don't think the Meyers Briggs is an inherently useful tool. But taking the same test periodically can be a helpful way to analyze the ways you change over time.

A correlary would be like -- the number of times you can skip rope. It's not a good be-all-end-all measurement for physical fitness. But if you took a rope-skipping test every year, you'd see trends emerge over time, and there may be an interesting story there.


for later:

Extroverted (E) 54.29% Introverted (I) 45.71%
Intuitive (N) 63.41% Sensing (S) 36.59%
Thinking (T) 63.64% Feeling (F) 36.36%
Perceiving (P) 72.73% Judging (J) 27.27%

I do occassionally score INTP, this isn't especially weird, because it hinges on a single varialble, thinking vs. feeling. I know what I usually score, and, the description of an INFP is, a pretty accurate description of me. I'm much more inclined to buy the INFP description because there's no way in hell Einstein and I have much in common, besides wearing other people's shoes.
