    Here's a much better way to find possible partners and learn about yourself. icon_razz.gif This is the Jung typology test, based on Carl Jung's classification of the human personality. Therefore, though it might not be a hundred percent accurate, it is still not one of those idiotic "answer this and I'll tell you what you are" type of tests.

    Trust me, you'll be surprised about what you'll learn about yourself. ;)


    Take this test at: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

    Then find the description of your personality here: http://www.typelogic.com/

    Then post your personality type here. icon_biggrin.gif




    I'm an INFP - Introverted Intuitive Feeling Percieving...

    strength %:

    56 25 25 78

    These tests are fun to take

    So I'm a INTJ - A mastermind

    33/38/1/67

    To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know.

    Hmm...very true

    I am an INFJ... they tend to support the "oppressed and downtrodden". Martin Luther King, Jr and President Carter are INFJ's.

    I actually took this test 15 years ago and really does make sense. I am told the INFJ is the most rare personality type.

    One point... there is a scale to each letter. I fell on the introverted side barely... but the N and the J are way over. I am an overly structured person... and have made some progress to being more spontanious.

    The Portait of the Teacher (ENFJ)

    The Idealists called Teachers are abstract in their thought and speech, cooperative in their style of achieving goals, and directive and extraverted in their interpersonal relations. Learning in the young has to be beckoned forth, teased out from its hiding place, or, as suggested by the word "education," it has to be "educed." by an individual with educative capabilities. Such a one is the eNFj, thus rightly called the educative mentor or Teacher for short. The Teacher is especially capable of educing or calling forth those inner potentials each learner possesses. Even as children the Teachers may attract a gathering of other children ready to follow their lead in play or work. And they lead without seeming to do so.


    The career choices link I found interesting because 3 of the choices fit in with what I go to school for now, currently I'm in management, and I used to teach, so it's all fairly accurate.

    Actually HndsmKansan, INFP's are the rarest, less than 1%. INFJ's are at 2%. I think.

    INFP's are rare, hence the feeling of loneliness. As idealists (like other types, e.g. ENFJ's which are more the givers/teachers, INFP's are dreamers/writers) we often wonder why most of the world don't share our vision of a better humanity.

    The following describes me to a T:

    INFP:

    "creative, smart, idealist, loner, attracted to sad things, disorganized, avoidant, can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings, prone to quitting, prone to feelings of loneliness, ambivalent of the rules, solitary, daydreams about people to maintain a sense of closeness, focus on fantasies, acts without planning, low self confidence, emotionally moody, can feel defective, prone to lateness, likes esoteric things, wounded at the core, feels shame, frequently losing things, prone to sadness, prone to dreaming about a rescuer, disorderly, observer, easily distracted, does not like crowds, can act without thinking, private, can feel uncomfortable around others, familiar with the darkside, hermit, more likely to support marijuana legalization, can sabotage self, likes the rain, sometimes can't control fearful thoughts, prone to crying, prone to regret, attracted to the counter culture, can be submissive, prone to feeling discouraged, frequently second guesses self, not punctual, not always prepared, can feel victimized, prone to confusion, prone to irresponsibility, can be pessimistic"

    ESFJ


    very expressed extravert
    moderately expressed sensing personality
    moderately expressed feeling personality
    moderately expressed judging personality


    "As an ESFJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. "

    I'm ENTJ

    I love this quote
    "I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?"
    "I'm really sorry you have to die." lol

    ENTJs are decisive. They see what needs to be done, and frequently assign roles to their fellows. Few other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often leading the charge) into the mouth of hell. When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may unleash an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.

    I have always heard (from a variety of sources) that the INFJ is the rarest personality type....at 1.0%.
    I think it is widely accepted that thats correct.

    One quick source I went to which confirmed:

    Depending on when I take the test I go back and forth from INTP and INTJ. INTP seems to be more common though.

    ENFP

    Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving

    33 25 62 44

    ENFP - "The Inspirer"

    ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.

    An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves, and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

    Ok, so I'm

    E - Extroverted (DUH!!) @ 44
    S - Sensing @ 88
    F - Feeling (I do like touching!!!) @ 19
    J - Judging (I dunno about this one) @ 1

    Guardians of birthdays, holidays and celebrations, ESFJs are generous entertainers. They enjoy and joyfully observe traditions and are liberal in giving, especially where custom prescribes.

    All else being equal, ESFJs enjoy being in charge. They see problems clearly and delegate easily, work hard and play with zest. ESFJs, as do most SJs, bear strong allegiance to rights of seniority. They willingly provide service (which embodies life's meaning) and expect the same from others.

    ESFJs are easily wounded. And when wounded, their emotions will not be contained. They by nature "wear their hearts on their sleeves," often exuding warmth and bonhomie, but not infrequently boiling over with the vexation of their souls. Some ESFJs channel these vibrant emotions into moving dramatic performances on stage and screen.

    Strong, contradictory forces consume the ESFJ. Their sense of right and wrong wrestles with an overwhelming rescuing, 'mothering' drive. This sometimes results in swift, immediate action taken upon a transgressor, followed by stern reprimand; ultimately, however, the prodigal is wrested from the gallows of their folly, just as the noose tightens and all hope is lost, by the very executioner!

    An ESFJ at odds with self is a remarkable sight. When a decision must be made, especially one involving the risk of conflict (abhorrent to ESFJs), there ensues an in-house wrestling match between the aforementioned black-and-white Values and the Nemesis of Discord. The contender pits self against self, once firmly deciding with the Right, then switching to Prudence to forestall hostilities, countered by unswerving Values, ad exhaustium, winner take all.

    As caretakers, ESFJs sense danger all around--germs within, the elements without, unscrupulous malefactors, insidious character flaws. The world is a dangerous place, not to be trusted. Not that the ESFJ is paranoid; 'hyper-vigilant' would be more precise. And thus they serve excellently as protectors, outstanding in fields such as medical care and elementary education.

    Functional Analysis:
    Extraverted Feeling

    ESFJs live in their Extraverted Feeling functioning. Feeling, a rational (i.e., deciding) function, expresses opinions easily in the E world of objects and people. ESFJs have the ability to express warmth, rage, and a range of other emotions. Actions are encouraged or rebuked based on how they affect other people, especially people near and dear to the ESFJ. This type's vocal decisiveness predisposes many of its number to facility with administration and supervision.
    Introverted Sensing

    The secondary Sensing function aids and abets the dominant Fe in that sensate data is collected and at once compared with the inner forms or standards. Data on which decisions are made are thus focused and given a contrast which tends to be stronger and clearer than the original stimuli. The strengthening effect of Si on Fe may be responsible for this type's reputation for wearing their "hearts on their sleeves." At any rate, ESFJs reflect the "black and white" view of reality which is common to the SJ types.
    Extraverted iNtuition

    Intuition is tertiary--as the ESFJ matures, and as situations arise which call for suspension of criticism, Ne is allowed to play. Under the leadership of the Fe function, iNtuition allows for a loosening of the more rigid Si rights and wrongs; teasing and slapstick humor emerge. ESFJs are also capable of discerning patterns and philosophies, but such perceiving is subject to the weakness of the tertiary position, and the results often lack the variety and complexity of connections that more complex systems require.
    Introverted Thinking

    The inferior Ti function may rarely be expressed. In fact, ESFJs may take affront at the aloof, detached nature of dominant Ti types, or conversely, be drawn to them. Some ESFJs construct rationale which have the appearance of (Jungian) Thinking logic, but under scrutiny are in fact command performances of "Thinking in the service of Feeling," (i.e., Thinking-like conclusions which do not obey the tenets of impersonal logic; they rather construct scenarios from only those "hard, cold facts" which support the conclusion reached by the dominant Extraverted Feeling function.

    Your Type is: INTP

    Introverted 67
    Intuitive 25
    Thinking 25
    Perceiving 22

    Qualitative analysis of your type formula

    You are:

    * distinctively expressed introvert
    * moderately expressed intuitive personality
    * moderately expressed thinking personality
    * slightly expressed perceiving personality

    INTPs are pensive, analytical folks. They may venture so deeply into thought as to seem detached, and often actually are oblivious to the world around them.

    Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off. While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists.

    INTPs are relatively easy-going and amenable to almost anything until their principles are violated, about which they may become outspoken and inflexible. They prefer to return, however, to a reserved albeit benign ambiance, not wishing to make spectacles of themselves.

    A major concern for INTPs is the haunting sense of impending failure. They spend considerable time second-guessing themselves. The open-endedness (from Perceiving) conjoined with the need for competence (NT) is expressed in a sense that one's conclusion may well be met by an equally plausible alternative solution, and that, after all, one may very well have overlooked some critical bit of data. An INTP arguing a point may very well be trying to convince himself as much as his opposition. In this way INTPs are markedly different from INTJs, who are much more confident in their competence and willing to act on their convictions.

    Mathematics is a system where many INTPs love to play, similarly languages, computer systems--potentially any complex system. INTPs thrive on systems. Understanding, exploring, mastering, and manipulating systems can overtake the INTP's conscious thought. This fascination for logical wholes and their inner workings is often expressed in a detachment from the environment, a concentration where time is forgotten and extraneous stimuli are held at bay. Accomplishing a task or goal with this knowledge is secondary.

    INTPs and Logic -- One of the tipoffs that a person is an INTP is her obsession with logical correctness. Errors are not often due to poor logic -- apparent faux pas in reasoning are usually a result of overlooking details or of incorrect context.

    Games NTs seem to especially enjoy include Risk, Bridge, Stratego, Chess, Go, and word games of all sorts. (I have an ENTP friend that loves Boggle and its variations. We've been known to sit in public places and pick a word off a menu or mayonnaise jar to see who can make the most words from its letters on a napkin in two minutes.) The INTP mailing list has enjoyed a round of Metaphore, virtual volleyball, and a few 'finish the series' brain teasers.

    INTPs in the main are not clannish. The INTP mailing list, with a readership now in triple figures, was in its incipience fraught with all the difficulties of the Panama canal: we had trouble deciding on:

    1) whether or not there should be such a group,
    2) exactly what such a group should be called, and
    3) which of us would have to take the responsibility for organization and maintenance of the aforesaid group/club/whatever.

    My scores usually vary. I think I was an ENFJ last year when I took the test for a paper I was writing for one of my classes. I took the test today and I'm an INFJ - 22, 75, 25, 78. I teeter on the introver/extrovert fence. I love getting infront groups of people when teaching my fitness classes. In other situations, I have to tell myself to have fun and I usually do. I don't mix with a group new people well all the time, but it depends upon my mood.

    INFP but I've also scored as INFJ in the past so I guess it depends on my mood. In work situations, I've been known as someone who has " . . . a gift for taking technical information and putting it into layman's terms," which is often and INFP trait, but I'm not sure which best describes me.

    HndsmKnsan, it seems to vary by source. But yeah, INFJ, INTP, and INFP are all very rare. icon_confused.gif

    tommysguns2000what I do know..is that I'm the same as BJBens..which makes us a perfect match for several nights of hot lovin!


    Actually most personalities click best with the opposites. For example, my personality's best match would be ENFJ's or ESFJ's.

    As for your personality ENFP - The Inspirers - you tend to be attracted to other NF's, and respect NT's.

    Anyway, it's not set in stone, LOL. Personalities evolve as we grow and mature.

    (E/I)NTP, the parenthesis is because I've gone back and forth between introversion and extroversion when taking the test, though I think I'm probably closer to the ENTP for what it's worth, and certainly I'm not immune to a little self projection.

    As for the 'rarity' of certain personality types all the IN(x) personality types should be equally rare, in that in the material they say the prevalence within the population of thinking vs. feeling is about 50/50% and judging vs. perceiving is also about 50/50%, so if that is true a rarest personality types would be the introved intuitive persons -- ie. 1/4 of intuitives should be introverted, and then 1/4 each of those introverted intuitives would belong to each of the specific personality types within the category.

    Disclaimer: I think personality tests are interesting and probably useful, but hardly definitive -- certainly we like to categorize ourselves, and if not with the vagueries horoscopes, based on the position of our planet stars thousands of years ago, why not even more with the personality tests of more recent invention?

    fuckmehard!!! i did a concept paper about this test for my boss who's ISTJ but did not bother to take the test... now i'm freaked out at how this sort of revealed everything about me accurately in three words: "WHERE'S-THE-PARTY???" lol

    And so, I'm a Performing Artisan:
    E = 44
    S = 1
    F = 75
    P = 11

    ESFPs love people, excitement, telling stories and having fun. The spontaneous, impulsive nature of this type is almost always entertaining. And ESFPs love to entertain -- on stage, at work, and/or at home. Social gatherings are an energy boost to these "people" people.

    Energetic and uninhibited, Performers create a mood of "eat, drink, and be merry" wherever they go, and life around them can have a continual party-like atmosphere.

    ESFPs love to talk to people about people. Some of the most colorful storytellers are ESFPs. Their down-to-earth, often homespun wit reflects a mischievous benevolence.

    Representing about ten per cent of the general population, Performers radiate warmth and optimism, and are able to lift others' spirits with their contagious laughter and their irrepressible joy of living.

    Hello Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Magic Johnson, Pablo Picasso, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and ELVIS!!!

    IM a ESFP

    ESFPs are attracted to new ideas, new fashions, new gadgets, new ______. Perhaps it's the newness of life that attracts ESFPs to elementary education, especially to preschool and kindergarten.

    ESFPs love to talk to people about people. Some of the most colorful storytellers are ESFPs. Their down-to-earth, often homespun wit reflects a mischievous benevolence.

    Almost every ESFP loves to talk. Some can be identified by the twenty minute conversation required to ask or answer a simple factual question.

    Functional Analysis:

    Extraverted Sensing

    The dominant function of ESFPs is concerned with the reality that is perceived through the senses. This type's prime directive is to examine the tangible through taste, touch, sight, feeling and hearing. ESFPs' need for new experiences surely results from this function. Feeling gives focus to the collected information, producing the amiable nature of this type. As perceivers, ESFPs do not linger on moral concerns unless it is in service of a Greater Good and/or a unifying cause.

    Introverted Feeling

    Feeling, which tends to decision-making in the interest of individual beings, is auxiliary to sensing. As with all introverted functions, feeling for ESFPs has a surreal, cryptic, quintessential nature. It is more often implied than verbally expressed, more apparent in countenance and deed rather than word or creed. Feeling takes care that playful pokes and pranks do no harm to the victim.

    Extraverted Thinking

    This tertiary function is at the ready to give definitive answers when the world requires them. It provides a measure of balance to Introverted Feeling, allowing the ESFP some level of boundary and protection from those who would take advantage. When overused or overestimated, however, Thinking becomes a liability. ESFPs do well to seek out confirmation of the soundness of tough-minded decisions.

    Introverted iNtuition

    This function is least visible. As is the nature of the inferior (fourth) function, ESFP intuition lacks a sense of balance. This type seems most successful in deducing patterns and seeing connections only after a thorough examination of the facts (which process appears quite unorganized and haphazard to non-SPs). Although some ESFPs may develop such abilities, the mastery of logic, analysis and abstraction is usually difficult and wearying, and not very much fun.
