Got Personality?

March 04, 2005

Alright, who needs a break from intellectual pursuits? I know I do! Whew! So, I just took a personality test online (Thanks, Kate!):

INTJ - "Mastermind". Introverted intellectual with a preference for finding certainty. A builder of systems and the applier of theoretical models. 2.1% of total population.

Hmmm. The world may be in trouble. Muhahaha!

So. How accurate are these personality tests? I mean, I'm reading... sounds about right... bookworm? check. thirst for knowledge? check. stubborn? check. "an INTJ sees reality as the pawn of ideas" ? check! the catch-phrase "why not?" ? checkity check check.

okay. so. So, baby, what's your sign Meyers-Briggspersonalitytype?

When I last took that test, probably the summer after I graduated from high school, I scored as an XNTJ (on the borderline between I and E). My teaching persona is definitely an E, and with my family I'm an E, but otherwise I've probably gotten more I over the years.

Gah! Help! I can't get into my blog!

I was just saying to a friend that I thought personalities changed over time because I thought I may have gotten a different "score" last time around.

I'm probably a pleasant cross between and I and E - sometimes I can get out there and other times I just can't do it. I can be spunky in small groups but I can never seem to talk in class... and yet I can get in front of a group of people and do a presentation no problem.

I've always been more extroverted with random strangers - I could command a group of five hundred to do my bidding (whether or not they'd do it is another story) but smaller groups give me the heebiejeebies sometimes. Weird.

While the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator makes for interesting discussion and contemplation about personality, it doesn't actually identify personality characteristics. See http://skepdic.com/myersb.html and http://skepdic.com/forer.html
