The Lab Called…

Took the Myers-Briggs test.

Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is: INTJ, the “Strategist”

  • Introversion: 80%
  • iNtutitive: 60%
  • Thinking: 90%
  • Judging: 70%

I guess that sounds about right.

  1. My results:

    “Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is: ENFJ, the “Mentor”

    Extroversion: 60%
    iNtutitive: 80%
    Feeling: 70%
    Judging: 65%”

    I like the Myers-Briggs concept and I’ve seen it work well on others, but I don’t know what my results mean. I can’t see myself as “mentor” AT ALL! Also, 1) it was hard to choose for some questions, 2) I may have been choosing some of the answers out of “self-flattery” rather than based on truth.

    • I can see you as a mentor. This page calls it “teacher.”

      You obviously love teaching others about music, and people are paying attention. I’ve found out about a few awesome things due to your site (Wax, for one). I’ve seen other comments saying you taught them about music they weren’t aware of. I can see you mentoring kids or young men in any number of subjects.

      I had difficulty picking a few of the answers too, and I tried to watch out for any self-flattery, but it probably snuck in somewhere.

      • Garsh, I didn’t think about it that way.

        . . . Do you think I set a bad example by assassinating my user name?

        Anyway, now I have to reconcile the “feeling over thinking” result with the mentor role.

        Oh, wait!

  2. There are quite a few of those in this corner of the Sphere. Vanessa and Lacaegate are INTJ’s. I’m an INFP..which is basically an emo.

    • Emo comes with liking goth stuff. It’s in the rulebook. Black flowers and bad poetry as well. 😉

      I took the test after I saw this post –

      but before she posted a link to the test, so I took a different one. After she linked to the one she took, I did it again and got a different score.

      Introvert(56%) iNtuitive(69%) Thinking(50%) Judging(44%)
      You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (56%)
      You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (69%)
      You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (50%)
      You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (44%)

      50% Thinking over Feeling??? Me??? The Introversion level sounds closer to correct than the other test, though.

  3. I usually like INTJ’s but INTJ’s don’t always like me.

    This was from the wikipedia page.
    INFPs are creative types and often have a gift for language. As introverts, they may prefer to express themselves through writing. Their dominant Feeling drives their desire to communicate, while their auxiliary intuition supplies the imagination. Having a talent for symbolism, they enjoy metaphors and similes

    Gosh, I’m so cliche.

    • I like that sort of thing up to a point. After that point it just looks to me like verbal sensory fluff. I like clever, creative song lyrics, for example, but generally not written poetry.

      I’ve never thought about it in these terms til now, but I think I like the introverted ones better than the extroverted ones. The introverts are writing things to express a thought to themselves, a way to understand something, where I think the extroverts are trying more to massage the listener’s senses with anything that sounds good for as long as they can to get liked. Which kind of explains my comment up above, since a lot of songwriters are introverts.

      I thought I was the only one up at this hour. Oh, right…. goth vampire.

  4. People with so little “F” sometimes come across as autistic. I didn’t really get that impression of you.

    • I don’t know. I was painfully shy as a kid, at least for the first few years of school. I got a little better after 2nd or 3rd grade, but never broke out as a social butterfly by any stretch, and come junior high (when I switched schools) it got worse again.

      I may have a faint touch of Asperger’s, I don’t really know. I picked up on most basic interactions well enough, but subtler social cues eluded me as often as not, and I had to sort of train myself to study people to get a better understanding. I don’t lack empathy (if anything, I had to force myself to cut back on it a bit).

      There’s been a few mentions today at SSM’s place about “she wanted to sleep with me at the time but I didn’t realize it” situations. I don’t even want to guess how many times a girl was interested in me and waiting for me to ask her out and I never had a clue. I wouldn’t even really consider the idea that this happened, except people have told me about it after the fact.

      I don’t know where all this is coming from. Guess I had too much caffeine at work tonight.

    • Thinking about this a little more (since my mind seems to be fixated on the subject now), I think it has less to do with Asperger’s or autism or any other disorder, and more to do with the fact that I got very little positive and lots of negative* reinforcement from peers as a kid. I got very withdrawn, which probably fueled things even more. I managed to start breaking out of it in my 20s, but I still grapple with it on and off even now.

      * CL is going to show up at any second with her knuckle-rapping ruler and correct me on my use of “positive” and “negative.” Heh.

  5. That sounds right. I actually get annoyed with “fluff” if it starts to seem manipulative. I like the sense that I am ease-dropping on someones thought processes. My tolerance for being preached to is limited. I can tolerate it in small doses, but I’d really rather just enjoy a person enjoying themselves.

    LOL..that could have more than one meaning.

    I actually got up at 4am. Not on purpose.

  6. In contrast..I am socially awkward because I do pick up on social cues. So much so that even a tiny bit of irritation expressed on someone’s face upsets me.

    If a person is highly empathetic it is probably better they be a bit socially obtuse.

  7. If a person is highly empathetic it is probably better they be a bit socially obtuse.

    Yeah, there’s definitely such as thing as swinging the pendulum too far in one direction. A little social obtuseness probably helps take the edge off.

  8. I got INFP, not sure what that means yet. This is interesting.

  9. LOL, it says I’m good as long as I don’t have to use logic to find any solutions. That sounds terrible, I don’t think I like this test although the rest of the description sounds fairly accurate
