Myers-Briggs Psychological Testing

Postby Messiah » Tue May 15, 2007 12:34 am UTC

I have an assignment due today. So naturally, I’m procrastinating. Just curious as to whether people have taken any psychological tests lately, and how they scored. I’m looking for tests like the Myers-Briggs test.
I took it recently online (not really sure how reliable it is, but it was more just out of curiousity than anything and apparently I’m an ENTJ.

Wikipedia wrote:ENTJ (Extroverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging) is one of the sixteen personality types from personality type systems based on C.G. Jung, of which the best-known are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Keirsey Temperament Sorter and Socionics. Referring to Kiersey, ENTJs belong to the temperament of the Rationals and are called Fieldmarshals. In Socionics ENTjs belong to the club of the researcher, the gamma Quadra and are named "Entrepreneur" or Jack London. Another notation for ENTj is LIE (which is an acronym for Logical-Intuitive Extratim, referring to the cognitive functions). ENTJ is sometimes considered to be the ideal type in business - for example MBA students who take the MBTI are expected to test as ENTJ. One could argue however that ESTJ are more apt at the routine of working one's way up in a large business organization than the visionary and original ENTJ.


Here is one site for taking the test.

Anyone suggest any others? And how does everyone score?

Repeated EDITs: Can only get the poll to show all 15 of the 16 types, despite the fact that they're all listed and added when I'm in composing/editing mode. Anyone have any ideas how to fix it? Is there a maximum number of poll options that will show up?

Fix'd! Once you type in the Poll Option you have to press Add Option for it to show up. -L

EDIT 2: Thanks! I had done that, and it had brought up another blank field below as per usual so it definitely seemed to be all right...oh well!

I dislike that the Myers-Briggs test was conceived (sort of) with the expectation that there would be a "moderate" value for each, so that each letter would mean something more than a slight leaning, and then the implementation is not like that.

Extrema are only interesting if they are extrema.

INTP here, though I think when I took it, my N was only 3.

I think I'll take it again.

It always amuses me how these tests mention that types like INTP or INFJ are some incredibly low percentage of the population, yet they're invariably the most popular options in these polls. <idiotic stereotype>All the ESes are off reading Glamour, throwing parties and hanging out at clubs, I suppose.</is>

I spent a long time always coming up INTP. Now I'm coming up INTJ with preferences expressed by 1% and other such silliness.

I am probably more introverted than the test lets on, as in I spend a lot of time staring off into space and thinking about various things. Although maybe not about myself.

I would have thought I'd be more thinking and less intuitive.

If INTJ is so rare, how are there 5 already?

Didn't take it again, but historically I have usually gotten INTJ as well. Also occasionally INTP and I think once ESTJ, which kinda freaked me out a little.

ISTJ this time... I think that might be a new outcome for me.

It's been said by Gelsamel, but that's sampling bias. You're asking whether a bunch of (sorry for the stereotype everybody) unsocial shut-ins who'd prefer to spend their time with a machine, are introverted or extroverted....

I am an INFP.

I have my doubts as to the validity of these tests beyond variables like extroversion and introversion. Just the same, maybe it was luck, but I found my own description to be extremely accurate....but perhaps that's the luck in stats; it was bound to happen eventually, eh?

I seem to recall it was 'INTJ' the previous two times somebody got me to take it, so I have no particular reason to take it again.

Seems lots of people are 'INTJ' or 'INTP' here. I guess that could say something. Or not.

I think bulletin boards/forums may represent the 'mindless, repetitive tasks' that INTJ personality types are prone to, at least according to SOME of the sites that try to make a mountain of this particular molehill.

Mmm, just as even further proof these aren't definitive, I took the test again to get the exact numbers, and I changed from ENTJ to INFJ. My scores for ENTJ though were something close to 1 38 6 20, so it makes sense I might vary the I/E and F/T from day to day.

Don't insult my "crappy online" one, you'll insult it's feelings! It's 72 questions, not exactly lengthy, but not long. It really doesn't matter about the length though, because a huge variety comes in how the questions are worded, and your recent examples. I had a lot I was saying "well, it depends, I'd be like THIS in this way, but at the same time like THAT if it went that way."

Well it seems that most questions are worded for either positive or neutral.


Like do you like X more then Y?

If you say Yes, then you like X more then Y, but if no then X >= Y instead of just X>Y which made answering them easier.

The official Myers-Briggs test I did was really long, and had some of those "Strongly Disagree Disagree Neutral Agree Strongly Agree" questions.

Mmm, they should really be polarised questions, so there's no half-way points. It's clear choice then. The reason they take so damn long when they're done properly is that you're supposed to answer the same question a number of times, to ensure you're always the one trait. It gets really annoying though when you do a million psych research exams (have to do it at the moment for a 1st year psych elective), and they get so lazy that they just put the same question 10 times in a row, worded differently. And it's REALLY obvious, so you know you have to answer the same for all 10.

ISTP

Cool onlookers Quiet, reserved, observing and analysing life with detached curiosity and unexpected flashes of original humor. Usually interested in cause and effect, how and why mechanical things work, and in organizing facts using logical principles.

Relatively accurate.

Hoho, lots of INT?s here, though I suppose I shouldn't be surprised!

I took the same test couple months ago. But I love these things, so here's another go:

Then:
I?TP
89/1/11/67
(I think - something like it, anyway)

Now:
INFP
100/12/50/67

INTP seriously describes me to a tee, though. I hardly describe myself as optimistic, as INFPs seem to be.
