Personality test

Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test? My guy friend took it at work and the results were dead-on. Honestly, it felt like someone had read his diary and written up a detailed personal description. Intrigued, all our friends suddenly wanted to take it! So we found a mini version online. (Not sure how scientific it is, but it seems pretty good.)

I'm a ENFJ personality, and Alex is a INFP. Which are you? Take the quiz here, if you'd like. Does the description of your personality ring true? It's pretty crazy!

I got ENFJ, too! Fun.

I got ESFP!

Barbara said...

ENFJ here. Very accurate!

I was just talking about this the other day! =P I'm an ISFJ. I took the test again and compared it to the results when I took it 5 years ago and it's still the same. I guess I haven't changed =P

I'm ENFJ as well! Woohoo :)

Everyone who is considered for a job at my company is required to take the DiSC test, which is similar to MB. It is interesting how accurate it seems to be.
One time I applied for a managerial job at the Body Shop, received a direct email from a women in their HR saying she wanted to set up an interview. First, I had to take an extensive online personality test (it took over an hour). I got to the end of the test and it immediately told me I wasn't the right fit for the company!! I really wasn't expecting to find out I didn't get the job that quickly! It kinda stung at the time.
Now I am in a position where I hire people who I will probably work with for a long time, I realize how these tests are really good tools. I've found it a waste of time (and sometimes traumatic!) to attempt to coach an employee to perform in a job function that does not align with their personality.-like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole :)

I took one of these a few years ago as part of an aptitude test - I'm an INFP. The Enneagram is ridiculously accurate, though.

Caroline M said...

I'm an ENTJ, but not a strong one. I also tend toward. . . ENFP, I believe.

I think this is too funny you posted this, in college my housemates and I all did a personality test from The Life Colors book. It was such a great tool with communicating with each other during troubling days, and was such fun to pretend we had our own lingo calling each other out on our "indigo" or "crystal" qualities. Great test, and I think the most accurate as it breaks down ways you approach relationships with your parents, sex life, problem solving techniques, and more. Great fun! http://www.amazon.com/Life-Colors-What-Your-Reveal/dp/1577311698

I love Meyers Briggs! My college roommates and I spent hours analyzing each other and talking about our personality types. I'm an INFP. And the INFP's "natural match" is an ENFJ, so you and Alex are perfect for each other! I'm still on the search for my ENFJ...

I worked at a place that put huge focus on the results of this test, and honestly it's left me with a distaste for it ever since. I'll admit that it's accurate for some people (generally those that lean pretty heavily in that direction), but for me I was borderline on every letter. It also led to some pretty strong stereotyping, as you might expect. I sometimes felt like my personality was being shaped by people's perception of me after I told them my results, rather than being an actual reflection of who I am. Since at my workplace we had to share our results at the start of every new project, this was a continual issue.

I decided to take it again (I've taken it a few times but haven't taken it since college)...I'm an INFP but i'm usually on the border in the Perceiving/Judging category.

I took this for the first time 5 years ago and I'm obsessed with it. I made my husband take it and I found it helpful when it came to understanding how he and I work together.
I'm an ENFJ (like you!) and he's an INFP (he was an ENFP 5 years ago but is now an I!!)

We actually had a unit all about the Myers-Briggs back in my educational psychology class in college. The teacher was certified to go into companies and such and do seminars about how using myers-briggs to help work situations go better. The reasoning behind in- and how things like teaching or working situations can be tailored to work better as a result- is truly fascinating. I try to do things to accomedate both sides of the spectrum for all four areas when teachings (for example introducing the Big Ideas first, then go through the specifics steps/parts of a lesson and reiterating the Big idea again means both styles of information processing is covered)

I came out as INFJ this time, but flip back and forth on thinking and feeling. Usually being 50/50

We're the same :) ENFJ (Everyone needs fulfillment and joy)

Here's to us.... about 2% of the population!

I'm an ENTJ. I've done the full test and find it uncannily accurate. What's also funny is that I have just done a 'what animal are you' personality test on an iPhone App called MyHerd that only asks 4 MB test style questions which pinned me down as a Lion. Here is the description:

"I’m a decisive and forceful beast, the head honcho, 'the King’! I'll tell you straight and won't waste time deliberating when confronted with tough decisions. However, I’m always ready to learn and give others the benefit of my knowledge, especially teaching those young cubs a thing or two in the shade of the midday sun!"

A bit of fun and flattering (guess they don't want to point out any shortcomings like an inability to listen in the App!).

I thin ENFJ is a Wild Dog and ISFJ an Antelope!!!

elle :: everything reminds me of you said...

I did this at work too, and came out as ENTP. Completely dead on for my entire personality. Scary stuff.

paulina said...

Agreed! There is little empirical evidence for these tests - neither the theory these tests are based on nor their accuracy in results.

During this team effort, some of our posts have become unbelievably popular. Our Friday Fun post about that uses a personality test. personality tests

I'm an ENFJ too! I love the combination of extroverted but reflective, I think it describes me so well!

My results were 35 - 40% accurate at best. Others read mine and agree. I answered honestly so not sure what's up. Will ask friends and family to take it to see how results stack up. Fun though.

Kelly Rae said...

Just took the quiz and I'm a INFJ 56% Introvert. I knew that would be high. haha

I am an INFJ and I am amazed to see so many others! INFJ is supposed to be only 1-3% of the population so I wonder what it says that so many INFJ'ers are loving up Cup of Jo...

Suzonne said...

I took the complete version almost 30 years ago (!!!!!) and the results I got from the shortened version were exactly the same - ENXP. (I scored exactly 50% on Feeling/Thinking both then and now.) I think it's a great tool for self-awareness.

notakarentheworld said...

I'm ISTJ but just barely. I read through the description of what "your average ISTJ person looks like" and it could be me but to the extreme. I'm definitely introverted but my S, T and J were just moderately more than their counterparts.
