    I wouldn't be surprised, I'm weird regardless of type. I just can't imagine being anything else though.

    I dunno.. some people are less affected by outside perceptions of themselves overall, whether their input comes from other people or from a tool like the MBTI.
    I may be guilty of using it at times as a tool to understand other people - ascribing behaviors to their MBTI types and thereby somewhat minimizing how I might otherwise react to that behavior. And that can be a good thing or a bad thing.

    Regarding being mistyped... As others have mentioned, if it were an outside agency pigeonholing me based on my type, I would have a problem.

    Personally, I don't know that I would be capable of changing any of my idiosyncrasies were I to believe myself an ISTP or INFP.... or ENTP. By the time I took the test, though, I was in my thirties and fairly set in my ways.

    Anyway, after reading the INTP profile (Joe Butt's, I think), I was viscerally affected. It was kind of a "Eureka, that's ME" moment.

    I seen someone faked their own type. but you rarely mistyped ytourself. bWho knows about you more than you? If you are wrong about yourself and totally off, I guess you have some serious problems.

    It wouldn't matter.

    I will continue to think/behave as I always do. Sometimes, it correlates with my supposed type. Many times, it doesn't. I don't care. I won't change anything about myself due to a psychological typing system to begin with. I don't bend to fit into the category. It bends to me.

    It's very easy to mis-type yourself if you don't understand the context that the questions are asked in. The tests are not fool-proof.
    I find the comment you made to be especially odd since you have labeled yourself "untypable". Everyone has a type. If it were so easy, you would know what yours is, wouldn't you?

    It's an interesting diversion, but I pay less attention to my type than I do to my navel lint.

    It's not as bad as if you were to misspell your name for 30 years then check your birth certificate to find that you're an idiot.

    I stumbled upon this old thread while looking for something else, but I'll still answer wolfy's timeless question by posting an exchange between Z and I:

    Well, it would mean that my understanding of the functions was very, very flawed, and any attempt that I ever made in the past to type others, was completely flawed.

    That would be really depressing, and make me feel stupid and arrogant for being so sure about my type, but I suppose I would move on.
