personality test

a reader sent me a link to a personality test online based on "Jung Myers-Briggs typology"

I've scored differently in the past on other versions of the test however in this one

I'm an INFJ which is apparently the rarest of the combinations

  1. Unfortunately, they don’t have a category for a chameleon of moods. This time I came out as an ENFP. And upon reading their description, I tended to agree with most of it. When I took the test 10 years ago I was an INFJ, but within a few points of 6 other types. Then the more “type” descriptions I read, the more I start seeing myself being described in all 16. Damn, I thought I might be on to something.

    And they left out “silly”, “trivialist”, “dumb as a post”, “never makes his bed”, and a whole bunch more (many less graciously described) qualities I’ve been assigned from time to time.

    But it was fun! :)
    p.

  2. I’m the one “dumb as a post” because I have a Master of Education in Counseling and had to take these catoregizing tests and also interpret them for several volunteers in the early 1980s. BUT y’all (except Peter, my first husband [Margaret & David’s Dad] and second husband) know that “use it or loose it”.

    I’ve since taken M-B and others again. But I only remember the Strong Campall Interest inventory results because they are easly to understand. AND, I do see myself as an architect (my 1st choice for a career) or a college professor [you bet!]).

    M-B was very popular for work group training in the late 1980s. I remember that the senior staff had their “codes” for M-B posted by their doorsat the Indianapolis Public Works Department (where I was a “worker bee”). !!

    Anyway, I believe that Margot’s is a proper fit.

    Love YOU! Momm

  3. Rare indeed!
