Wow, usually, when I take a personality test, it's different, different times I take it.

This time, I retook it from the first time, and I'm still an INFP.

A lot of corporations and educational entities use the MBTI as a way of grouping staff for training and workshop purposes. Some companies even use the MBTI (or another reliable and valid instrument) to do a personality assessment prior to employing someone as a way to gauge where they will fit in with the organization. It's also a useful tool used by therapists in the mental health field for various reasons. I'm sure there are other uses but those three were the first ones that came to mind when I saw your post.

Edited to add to whom I am referring in my post. ;)

INFP.
My stepmom teaches a Myers-Briggs class among other things so I've taken it about a half dozen times over the past few years and I always come out INFP.

And always at the extreme ends of Introversion and Feeling. My iNtuitive and Perception scores change a bit though they still remain pretty strong.

I can totally see myself in the description and I think it's interesting, especially since I'm a male INFP, which comprise about 4-5% of the general population. (Stat from: //www.capt.org/mbti-assessment/estimated-frequencies.htm)

Further information on the Myers-Briggs test: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator

I first took this test as a requirement of the interview process of my job.

I'll update in the (my) morning if anyone else adds their profile;)

I usually test as INTP, but I'm split on T/F and P/J

I get a strong STJ vibe from dpc, an example being threads where people are congratulated for not complaining about rules and how they are enforced.

ISTJ - I would photograph my cats if I could catch them.

That is an interesting reason I had not thought of - thanks! [edit: and to Eric too, for expanding on the point]

I still think that its reductionism is moderately objectionable, and pigeonholing people in this manner (like describing people by their star signs) is misguided, and so using it for more intrusive purposes (such as profiling on recruitment) is highly objectionable. But as a process for helping people think about how and why people are different, there is a potentially good objective (the ends possibly justifying the means).


Pigeonholing? Only if you let yourself be pigeonholed! Am I just like every other INFP on the planet? I highly doubt it!! There is room for all kinds of variability in the model - the degree you prefer/express each "letter" just for starters. Then you get into the context thing and it throws another level of variability into it. Does my high N mean that I'm never good with details? No! There are times when I am all about the details. However, if I could team up with someone who loved the details and appreciated my big-picture thinking - that would be bliss!

Reductionism? Well, yeah, but isn't that often done to help facilitate learning? Or simply to help us make sense of our world and all the information that is coming at us by the second? I've seen another model where leadership styles are categorized as Lion, Owl, St. Bernard, and Hub (combo of all 3). Simplistic for sure, but can still help to make the point. The MBTI's 16 types are incredibly complex by comparison! So I'd say it's not intrinsically good/bad or right/wrong. How we use it, though, is where usefulness or potential problems come in. Anytime we judge an individual by the group "norm" (i.e. stereotyping) we are likely to run into trouble.

Again, I think that how the tool is used or misused would color my opinion on the hiring issue. How is it different than the Gallup leadership survey used in hiring executives? If the position you are hiring for needs someone with good organizing skills, why not use something like the MBTI - in addition to experience, credentials, etc. - to narrow the field?

And strangely, even though we make up about 2% of the world, I'm the 3rd one of us listed here!


Welcome to the club.


I'm a member of the INFJ club, too. And have been since the first time I took this inventory about 15 years ago. Although sometimes I will be a borderline INFP. I have elements of both, and find the description quite accurate.

In college, I introduced this to a bunch of my friends, and shocked them when I was able to "predict" with uncanny accuracy what they would come out as. I don't think it was so amazing - just part of what makes me an INFJ. :)
