What's your personality?

I could hazard a guess about a few folks. This one was a pretty decent version of the personality test that I've taken many a time to check to see if anything changed

Free personality test

Not surprisingly, it confirmed yet again that I'm type ISTJ though I don't know if I agree with the assessment about friendship. However the work style...embarassingly spot on. I didn't know about that last type that puts me in "turbulent" which is also correct.

Anyone else care to play along?

I'm an INFJ. It can't be helped I suppose. Lots of times people mistake me for the more extroverted ENFJ - but I'm really not.

What about the last bit - assertive or turbulent? I hadn't seen that show up on any previous test.

I could totally see you being an INFJ. The "E" part people perceive as you know is all for show. Some people that don't know me think E when I have to turn on the razzle dazzle and I'm anything but.

turbulent - i knew that though.

Yes, I can be very sociable - but the fact is if it's raining I still choose the crypt under the Church in which to read my book during the lunch hour. Normal people read their books in the staff kitchen, they don't pick the empty stone medieval crypt with the one entrance.

I know my type gets on well with the rational scientist types such as yourself though. We like you apparently and can work with you. It's the impulsive artists types my Group can't cope with.

If there were a crypt nearby, I would totally be there.

Heh, you know we'll get the job done reliably and on time.

Once my work neighbor is back to work (she had hernia surgery on Thursday), I'm going to make her take the test. There's no doubt at all that she's an "E" but the rest would be interesting to know. Definitely think "F" is in there too. She seems to think being an "I" is some sort of malady which I remind her that it isn't and give her "the look." lol

it's fun trying to guess people's type before they do the tests.

And then having the "ohhh that's why I always feel like they're a flaky, postering hipster who's faking it oohhhh"

Another INFJ. Never mistaken for an ENFJ, but in large groups am sometimes mistaken for furniture.

Y'all are so GOOD. I strive to be like you guys but clearly I'm too much of a logical robot. LOL

Sure, I took the test and gotENFJ Personality (“The Protagonist”)

Apparently, ENFJs are genuine, caring people who talk the talk and walk the walk, and nothing makes them happier than leading the charge, uniting and motivating their team with infectious enthusiasm, bu we tend to get carried away with other people's problems, taking them on as our own (oh, boy, they got that in one)

Very interesting...

OH lawd, they got you SPOT ON. Hee!

What about the assertive vs turbulent?

Yeah, sadly. I've 78% turbulent as opposed to assertive.

I'm wondering if anyone is assertive? My work neighbor might be. Hm...

Oh, I've known a few in my life. They aren't nice people.

I got assertive....

I wish I were more assertive. It's hard to balance it right and not come across as pushy to people.

I'll take that back then, because you ARE nice! :D

I got borderline assertive. Reviewing the questions, I think what they are looking at isn't "assertiveness" but more calmness versus being emotionally reactive.

Yes, I would agree with this. Yay for another (almost) assertive!

I got INFP-A, The Mediator. It's probably reasonably close to accurate.

OH wow! You're rare!

I love the famous and the fictional ones.

I REALLY like this bit from your personality especially "To top it all off, ideas like networking and "the friend of my friend is my friend" hold little weight with INFPs."

"To top it all off, ideas like networking and "the friend of my friend is my friend" hold little weight with INFPs."

This? Is me to a 't'. I think networking is the most useless thing ever. LOL!

And the thing about being a hermit. Yes, entirely true. But I think that is probably true for most introverts.

INTP-T. Some of these tests peg me as INTJ and I do have some of those qualities, but INTP is a better fit overall. "They are often conducting full-fledged debates in their own heads" pretty much describes 90% of my average day.

There are worse people to debate, I'd say. :)

Very true! But, as silly as it sounds, I actually get myself quite worked up doing it as I'm usually attacking my own beliefs from the opposite point of view. Plus I can't turn it off, so I've lain awake literally the entire night many times, rehashing the same debate I've already had with myself a hundred times before. It's very weird.

I'll have to take this later and see my results. In the past I have taken a bunch of these. I flip flop between INTJ and ISTJ.

That was a quick test. I am a logistician - ISTJ - A.
