I share personality type with these fellows:

Alexander the Great
Weird Al Yankovick
Alfred Hitchcock
Bugs Bunny
Wile E. Coyote
Garfield the cat

That's not something I'd want to admit to. ;-)

ISFJ.... i've never gotten an S before. i blame recent philosophy classes for convincing me that reason is the slave of passion.

# very expressed introvert
# slightly expressed sensing personality
# moderately expressed feeling personality
# slightly expressed judging personality

on the other hand, it doesn't really describe me. I do have a "need to be needed," but i'm not a "protector guardian". I am uncomfortable with supervisory responsibilities, as it says, but i'm not a family person at all.

just the internet.

INTJ


I've never really found personalty tests to be anything but a load of cold reading on paper.

But I am very cynical...or realistic, one or the other.

As such, I don't really feel the description fits me, I mean, of course some of it does, as I'm sure any description has peices that fit just about anyone.

But I'm sure many of you, like me, are just taking this test in good fun and not taking it to be something amazingly accurate and personal. Personality tests are fun...even if they are a load of crap :P

Well, the typology is a professional psychiatric theory, so it's probably not entirely inaccurate. Whether the test is a good one, though, I don't know, though I've read through the different descriptions, not just my own, and what I got was what actually described me the best.

But, no, such tests aren't entirely accurate. They try to draw general conclusions based on specific instances, which makes it a guessing game, although a calculated one. It's like trying to say something in general about all people who are fans of Machinae Supremacy. I could collect a number of statements that are all very probable for any random fan, and while most of these statements would be true for most of the fans, all statements would be true for only quite few fans (and only a very few fans would have only few or no statements true). A trend would develop, and by collecting a number of different instances such as these (that is, "fan of MaSu", "helpful", "ordered", "scientifically minded", etc), I could correlate the trends for all the cases, and from what you say you do, I could, given a good algorithm, give a pretty accurate description of you.

Which is in fact not cold reading, but closer to hot reading.

The results of personality tests, however, can be interesting, and for us who like to think and analyze (NT-types, if we're going by the test :-) ), it can be a tool in analyzing ourselves.

I could have told you without taking the test that I'm a horrible person.

That's it, mister. You go listen to Edge and Pearl at once!
