What's your MBTI personality type?
« on: July 17, 2016, 10:18:59 PM »
What's your MBTI type? I'm usually perceived as ENFP ("Campaigner", "Champion"), although one particular test has pointed me as INFP ("Healer", "Idealist").

This is a huge fever on other parts of the internet so I imagine some of you have taken some of these tests, but otherwise you can take one here. I'm curious about your results both individually and to know the average type of OC.net.

INFJ. The I and the J are problems. Altho Myers and Briggs, and their popularizers, hold that every measured aspect of personality is wonderful in its own way, I find that not being extroverted and being judgmental are real frailties, opening me to temptation and sin.

In my case, extroversion has led me to sinful situations. They were much more grave before I converted, but now I still feel tempted by it sometimes, specially regarding women. I think it's particularly hard for us extroverts to balance the right companions.

There is no personality that does not have its faults. That's God's plan. Everyone has a salvation story. On the other hand, some people's weak points are more-nearly their own, as being falls from the intended nature of man, while, as in the case of your extroversion, some people's weak points are ones they share with their era and society.

This test said I was INTJ, though in the past I have generally gotten INFJ.

I'm INFJ, sometimes dubbed 'The Advocate'. I made peace with those aspects long ago. They remind me why I don't fit in the world, and why that's all right.

INFP-A, Mediator
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

According to the test I'm INFJ (-T), which seems to be a fairly common type among us.

What interests me about all this is that although I don't think I change much in the two cultures I have most dealings with, I'm usually judged by most people to be quite and reserved in the US Midwest but outgoing and a bit of a chatterbox in Northwest Finland.

 “The Logician” (INTP-T)

Although that makes sense as an engineer, isn't that like the opposite of the Orthodox faith? :(
In 1666 the Orthodox Old-Believers were supposedly anathemized in Moscow.  Coincidence?

This is really getting interesting -- that the poll is showing preponderances of personality types that are a blip in the general population.

I imagine there would be many xNFP among the active users, including Dominika and Mor particularly. We're only 10-13% in the US population though, according to Wikipedia.

INTJs are about 2% of the population, INFJs are less than 1%, and we have - so far - 4 of each here. By comparison, having 5 INFPs, who are 4%, looks rather predictable.

As is the fact that we seem to be overwhelmingly an introverted bunch.

I thought it was smaller than that, closer to .5% of the population.

On this zodiac MBTI I got a split between ENTP / ESTP with a 1% in favor of estp.  I think I've taken one or two of these before, and I think the results were different.  Does the description sound like me?  Maybe, but I could probably read myself on any horoscope personality test, as well as throw on a defiant scowl at any result.
