Calling All Introverted Intuitive Thinking Perceivers

If you’re interested in Myers-Briggs personality type systems, you might check out An INTP Profile (if you’re an INTP, that is). I’m not sure if there are other sites for the rest of the types.

    You know, I really think the M-B questions are worded poorly. I’m sure I’m INFP, but always get rated INTP. Why? They ask questions like “Do you strive to make decisions based on feelings or thoughts?” “Do you admire people who think or feel?| It’s my goal to do things based on thought.. I wish I could be like that, so that’s how I answer, and it skews the results.

    At best, the Myers-Briggs — and any personality test — can only give some shape to the style and preference of a person’s way of interacting with the world. The questions on this test are dichotomous, and forced choice isn’t flexible — no room for gray areas. And the more times the test is taken, the greater the chances are of manipulation. Once you get to know the test, you have a sense of what dimensions the questions are dealing with.

    People who test like you do often tend to kind be of ambidextrous. Only in your case, it’s being ambi-processed — you are capable and at ease with processing information cognitively and emotionally, and it probably depends on the task.

    I test consistently, but often my I/E scores are distributed differently. There was a point years past when the score was almost 50/50, but now I’m definitely more introverted than extroverted.
