    Default Personality types

    Recently I have started college where I have ,of course, started learning several new things. Of these things I have learned my personality type.
    Before I go into more depth I would like to state my purpose of starting this thread. This is to be nothing fancy, just a simple discussion on different topics, such as everyone's personality type and any forum they may be a part of. I belong to a forum for the INTJs.
    I used the Myers Briggs personality test. For anyone who has not taken it yet, I recommend taking thirty minutes or so to do so. If anyone is anything
    like me then knowing your personality type is like an anabolic steroid to the mind.

    I'm an INTJ. I've been around the forums for a couple of years now, seeing several names along the way. I would be very interested to know the personality type of each of you and anything you may want to add.

    To start the discussion I would like to say I have a small theory that most of you are introverted over extraverted and prefer thinking over feeling. I guess we will see.

    Keep in mind that outside of college, the Briggs Myers is pretty much rare to see because it was found to be highly inaccurate and easily gamed. It is neat though.

    For a while certain sectors of industry in the US were using personality tests like this as part of the general hiring process, but fell out of favor relatively quickly, especially when they found that people who were indicated to have good fit, weren't, and that people who were hired with the average "meet the team" approach, fit much better and at a lower process cost.

    All that aside, it's still pretty neat.

    This is one of them. Usually the longer they are the better. Have fun.

    I wasn't aware of that. I can see how it can be easily gamed. I can also see that the way my profile is described fits me almost perfectly. Either way, like you said, its neat.

    INTJ
    Introvert(22%) iNtuitive(50%) Thinking(25%) Judging(67%)

    * You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (22%)
    * You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
    * You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (25%)
    * You have distinctive preference of Judging over Perceiving (67%)

    seems to fit fairly well.
