    Default Jung's-Myers-Brigg's Typology

    What is Myers-Bigg's?

    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality questionnaire designed to identify certain psychological differences according to the typological theories of Carl Gustav Jung, as published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923). The original developers of the indicator were Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. They began developing the indicator during World War II.

    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs

    The 4 personality combinations types out of 16 different personalities:
    ISTJ (Inspector)
    ISFJ ( Protector )
    INFJ (Counselor)
    INTJ ( Mastermind)
    ISTP (Crafter)
    ISFP (Composer)
    INFP (Healer)
    INTP (Architect)
    ESTP (Promoter)
    ESFP (Performer)
    ENFP (Champion)
    ENTP (Inventor)
    ESTJ (Supervisor)
    ESFJ (Provider)
    ENFJ (Teacher)
    ENTJ (Field Marshal)


    Mine: INTJ

    It was, but I decided to seperate the Mecheville from Myer's-brigg. I rather not confused anyone; totally 2 different personality tests.

    I'm very skeptical when it comes to these types of tests. I think I mentioned the Forer Effect on some of the other threads, but it doesn't hurt to bring it up again. Having been involved in an experiment that proved this effect, I saw first-hand how it works.

    I'm not suggesting results from Myers-Briggs are totally invalid, it's just something people should be aware of. Wiki has a good explanation as does the Skeptics Dictionary:

    I just took the test and got INTJ as well. Very amusing. Apparently, I'm very intuitive.

    You are:
    moderately expressed introvert

    distinctively expressed intuitive personality

    moderately expressed thinking personality

    slightly expressed judging personality

    Awesome, welcome to the INTJ club, lol. I had a feeling based on your posts and other posts; you just might fall into INTJ or INTP We are very rare indeed.

    Permberly, do not feel bad even if you take the test; we are human, always have other doubts, if it is really you; its all natural.

    I didn't read anywhere in the profile that INTJ's are skeptical about personality tests. I've read some of the other profiles and can relate to many of them as well.

    It would be interesting to take this (or any) test at regular intervals over a long period and see if and how the results change. I'll try it again in a month and see what happens.

    It is said that when you take these tests, you should go with the first answer you think of and answer it truthfully, not how you want to present yourself or you think you should answer that way. It has to be answered implusively or else it wouldn't quite as accurate.

    Here is for ISTP(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lh-3432i78A):

    http://www.oswego.edu/plsi/istp.htm

    The Crafter Artisans are not only concrete in speech and utilitarian in getting things done, they are also directive and attentive in their social roles. Though directive like their Promoter counterparts, their directiveness is leavened by a good deal of attentiveness and seclusiveness. They do not approach strangers readily, but once in contact do not hesitate to tell them what to do. And they can be quite forceful in this, such that others tend to do their bidding.

    Like the other Artisans, Crafters live a life is artful action, but their particular nature is most easily seen in their mastery of tools of any and all kinds, from microscopic drill to supersonic jet, from potter's wheel to grand piano. A tool is any implement that extends or varies our human powers-vehicles, musical instruments, cutting devices, and weapons are just four of the many categories of the tools that surround us. Most of us use tools in some capacity, of course, but iStPs (only ten per cent of the general population) are the true virtuosos of tool work, with a natural ability to command tools, to bend them to their wishes, and to become adept at all the crafts requiring tool skills. Even from an early age iStPs are drawn to tools as to a magnet; tools fall into their hands demanding use, and they must manipulate them. Indeed, if a given tool, whether scalpel or earthmover, is operated with a precision that defies belief, that operator is likely an iStP.

    Full descriptions of the Crafter and the Artisans is in Please Understand Me or Please Understand Me II.

    Lol, don't worry its just a preference criteria, does that make your a teacher, not really. More or less, in able to help others in learning or skills.

    Here is for ENFJ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B308bA35bM):

    http://www.oswego.edu/plsi/enfj.htm


    [SIZE=3]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 eNFjs may attract a gathering of other children ready to follow their lead in play or work. And they lead without seeming to do so.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]Teachers expect the very best of those around them, and this expectation, usually expressed as enthusiastic encouragement, motivates action in others and the desire to live up to their expectations. Teachers have the charming characteristic of taking for granted that their expectations will be met, their implicit commands obeyed, never doubting that people will want to do what they suggest. And, more often than not, people do, because this type has extraordinary charisma.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3] The Teachers are found in no more than 2 or 3 percent of the population. They like to have things settled and arranged. They prefer to plan both work and social engagements ahead of time and tend to be absolutely reliable in honoring these commitments. At the same time, eNFjs are very much at home in complex situations which require the juggling of much data with little pre-planning. An experienced eNFj group leader can dream up, effortlessly, and almost endlessly, activities for groups to engage in, and stimulating roles for members of the group to play. In some Teachers, inspired by the responsiveness of their students or followers, this can amount to genius which other types find hard to emulate. Such ability to preside without planning reminds us somewhat of an ESFJ, but the latter acts more as a master of ceremonies than as a leader of groups. ESFJs are natural hosts and hostesses, making sure that each guest is well looked after at social gatherings, or that the right things are expressed on traditional occasions, such as weddings, funerals, graduations, and the like. In much the same way, Teachers value harmonious human relations about all else, can handle people with charm and concern, and are usually popular wherever they are. But Teachers are not so much social as educational leaders, interested primarily in the personal growth and development of others, and less in attending to their social needs.[/SIZE]

    Yeah, my professor has said the samething; thats a very good point. Actually, my professor and I are actually polar opposite's, while's I'm an INTJ, he's definitely an INTP; we're on the weird section, for sure.

    INTP ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djkq6...ated&search=):


    Of the four aspects of strategic analysis and definition it is the structural engineering role -- architechtonics -- that reaches the highest development in INTPs, and it is for this reason they are aptly called the "architects." Their major interest is in figuring out structure, build, configuration -- the spatiality of things

    As the engineering capabilities the INTPs increase so does their desire to let others know about whatever has come of their engineering efforts. So they tend to take up an informative role in their social exchanges. On the other hand they have less and less desire, if they ever had any, to direct the activities of others. Only when forced to by circumstance do they allow themselves to take charge of activities, and they exit the role as soon as they can without injuring the enterprise.

    The INTPs' distant goal is always to rearrange the environment somehow, to shape, to construct, to devise, whether it be buildings, institutions, enterprises, or theories. They look upon the world -- natural and civil -- as little more than raw material to be reshaped according to their design, as a formless stone for their hammer and chisel. Ayn Rand, master of the Rational character, describes this characteristic in the architect Howard Roark, her protagonist in The Fountainhead:

    He was looking at the granite. He did not laugh as his eyes stopped in awareness of the earth around him. His face was like a law of nature-a thing one could not question, alter or implore. It had high cheekbones over gaunt, hollow cheeks; gray eyes, cold and steady; a contemptuous mouth, shut tight, the mouth of an executioner or a saint. He looked at the granite. To be cut, he thought, and made into walls. He looked at a tree. To be split and made into rafters. He looked at a streak of rust on the stone and thought of iron ore under the ground. To be melted and to emerge as girders against the sky. These rocks, he thought, are here for me; waiting for the drill, the dynamite and my voice; waiting to be split, ripped, pounded, reborn, waiting for the shape my hands will give to them. [The Fountainhead, pp 15-16]

    Many regard this attitude as arrogant, and INTPs are likely, especially in their later years, after finding out that most others are faking an understanding of the laws of nature, to think of themselves as the prime movers who must pit themselves against nature and society in an endless struggle to define ends clearly and adopt whatever means that promise success. If this is arrogance, then at least it is not vanity, and without question it has driven the design engineers to take the lead in molding the structure of civilization.[/SIZE]

    Thats a very good point; its very true.

    Also, as my professor was giving this out. While, I'm an INTJ and my professor INTP; we're definitely odd/weird whatever, still we both are quiet rare when it comes to personality types.

    [SIZE=3]He was looking at the granite. He did not laugh as his eyes stopped in awareness of the earth around him. His face was like a law of nature-a thing one could not question, alter or implore. It had high cheekbones over gaunt, hollow cheeks; gray eyes, cold and steady; a contemptuous mouth, shut tight, the mouth of an executioner or a saint. He looked at the granite. To be cut, he thought, and made into walls. He looked at a tree. To be split and made into rafters. He looked at a streak of rust on the stone and thought of iron ore under the ground. To be melted and to emerge as girders against the sky. These rocks, he thought, are here for me; waiting for the drill, the dynamite and my voice; waiting to be split, ripped, pounded, reborn, waiting for the shape my hands will give to them. [The Fountainhead, pp 15-16]

    [SIZE=3]Many regard this attitude as arrogant, and INTPs are likely, especially in their later years, after finding out that most others are faking an understanding of the laws of nature, to think of themselves as the prime movers who must pit themselves against nature and society in an endless struggle to define ends clearly and adopt whatever means that promise success. If this is arrogance, then at least it is not vanity, and without question it has driven the design engineers to take the lead in molding the structure of civilization.[/SIZE]
