Judge not lest ye be judged.

 

Excellent advice…. which I clearly don’t take.

I have a friend who’s always talking about her Meyer Briggs test results. She had to take the quiz when she wanted a promotion at work because her employers needed to know if she was management material.

If you’re not familiar…

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

 

Not being considered for promotion, (unless being upgraded to your favorite blogger counts) I decided to find the free versions online and take a stab at finding out what kind of personality I am.

Test #1

My results:

None of my preferences were strongly one way or the other, which must mean I’m drab and quite tedious.

Hmm… I’m a benevolent pedagogue who manipulates others with my unique salesmanship.

The definition of a pedagogue is a dull or pedantic teacher. Not exactly how I see myself, but online quizzes can’t be wrong.

Test #2

My results:

Not sure that’s the best likeness…. but I’m carrying cake and a book, so maybe it’s not too far off the mark.

Quiz #2 shows me to be extroverted as well…. and feeling over thinking, though by much wider margins.

Not quite sure what they mean by a turbulent identity, but it sounds badass…

So I’ll take it.

 

 

Test #3

My results:

Another extrovert result, and apparently I talk too much.

Sorry… but that’s not exactly shocking.

This quiz had me going both ways for cognitive style.

And dead even for thinking over feeling.

But the last part?

Wow….

I’m a judgemental bitch if ever I saw one.

 

 

 

I also sound uptight and anal.

Good thing I don’t take these things seriously, because from the sounds of that profile I’m a robotic taskmaster with a whip.

Of course, the whip thing could be interesting…

  1. I’ve taken these tests a couple of times through the years but I always forget my results. Decided I’d try the first one you linked to. I’m apparently an INTP. I’ve already forgotten what it means other than introverted. Big shock there.

    1. INTPs are quiet, reserved, and thoughtful. …
      •They enjoy thinking about theoretical concepts and tend to value intellect over emotion. …
      •When analyzing data and making decisions, they are highly logical and objective.
      •Tends to be flexible and good at thinking “outside of the box.”

      That’s not bad.
      Better than being a judgemental bitch like me!

    1. “The Sagittarius personality is naturally enthusiastic, curious, positive, and energetic. There’s no question about it, Sagittarius is the biggest wanderer of the zodiac and is on a constant quest for happiness. Sagittarius traits include being serene, optimistic, and adventurous. With their jovial and naïve nature, Sagittarius has a tendency to head for the hills when drama arises.”

      Sounds about right.
      Drama? I’m outta there….!

  2. Firstly, that GOT meme is BRILLIANT! I always remember that season with that character as provocative and erotic even more so than other seasons.

    Secondly, my friend has been hounding me for 2 years to take that test. 2 years! She oftentimes refer to herself as whatever the hell she found out she was/is – just those 4 letters, which I find a tad bit annoying but she’s my friend and I love her so I just listen.

    Thirdly, now I know for sure I am never gonna take that test. It seems convoluted, overdone and confusing AF. Ain’t nobody got time for that 😂. Like seriously, let’s just call me DYNAMIC and leave it there.

    Lastly and by no means least – I am a whole lotta judgemental, but seriously who isn’t??!!!

  3. Some of us J people are proud of our Js lest everyone run about willy-nilly without any consideration of right and wrong.
    INFJ AND PROUD!

    It is very helpful in finding the right people for jobs. Truly. You can teach people new skills and give them great tools, but you can’t make them become someone else. If they’re not spending time and energy trying to act in ways it’s not natural for them, they can use that time and energy on the work in front of them.

    I work with all Js. Gray areas are what, exactly?!? LOL
