I love the Myers-Briggs test, which may be a window into my personality type. I’m an INTJ, and for me, everything worth doing is logical. If I can’t make a logical connection between Step 1 and Step 2—or Step 57, for that matter—I’m not doing it.
Lazy? Maybe. I prefer efficient—maybe that’s why I’m so interested in economics, I don’t know.
Recently, I proposed that Yakezie do a personality profile blog carnival. I had actually whipped up a pretty long post based on the test, but fellow INTJ at Sooverdebt posted a better explanation than I could have done. Again, efficiency :P, read about it at Andrea’s blog listed below.
What I find very interesting is that even with the small sample size that I have for this particular post, you’ll notice how incredibly overrepresented Introverts are in the online population, from bloggers to forumers.
Blogging Personalities – The Introverts
InvestitWisely scored as an INTP this time, and an INTJ before. INTJ to INTP seems like a pretty easy switch.
Andrea from Sooverdebt was another one who scored as an INTJ. There’s too many of us in the online world.
FrugalConfessions scored as an INFJ. She says, “I am a writer and environmental
investigator living in Houston, TX. I love frugality, all things organization, and
letting my hair down when no one else is looking.”
EverydayTipsandThoughts scored as an INFJ. Whoa, there’s two of you! 😛
Eemusings scored as an ISFJ. ISFJ is a tricky one…lots of extroverted tendencies in an introverted mind. Very cool write up!
Blogging Personalities – The Extroverts
Crystal from Budgeting in the fun stuff scored as probably the most extroverted as any blogger as an ESFJ. Interesting, to say the least, and I can say that you can see in her posts how extroverted “happy go lucky” she really is. 😉
Bucksome Boomer was one of our extroverted types, scoring as a ENFJ. The teacher!
Jacob from Mypersonalfinancejourney.com also scored as an ENFJ. The ENFJ personality type is very interesting to me; the mix between N and F is almost an anomoly in that they are almost opposites. Together, though, Bucksome and Jacob make for a unique teacher type.
Want to test your personality type
The best test I’ve found online is the test available here. It’s 72 yes or no questions, and it takes only a matter of minutes to complete. Most of the questions are pretty binary—you’ll know up or down, yes or no how you feel almost immediately. You can Google your four letter personality type to see what the e-psychiatrists say about you. For a very broad view, I like MyPersonality.
Have a post about your personality type? Leave it in the comments, or tell the world a little bit about you below. I’ll put all links to your types in the above link section, hopefully eventually filling it up so that there is one for each of the 16 types.
