    I was badly depressed in 1999, partly because of the lack of money. I was a young INTJ desperately willing to enter life, abandon my extreme shyness, willing to learn some of the things people usually do. I found MBTI probably from some psychology related site, or some related to mental development, social skills or something of the kind.

    Same here. I had to take an MBTI test at work just before a team building day thingy. I tested INTP, read the brief description in the handouts we got and then obsessively read everything I could find online for a whole weekend. I was fascinated by it all and blown away by the accuracy of the desciption (nice to finally not feel like a total freak).

    a long time ago at school a teacher from another school came to one of our weekly assemblies and gave a personality test.

    i did it and forgot about it.

    about 4 years later i suddenly remembered about that teacher and searched my brain to remember how HOT she LOOKED. and damm she does look hot.

    after a while i tried to remember what she was talking about the whole time 4 years ago and realized it was a personality test.

    so i went online and did it again.

    so here i am....

    Introduced to it by a therapist, then rediscovered it years later (last October)

    I don't remember if I just stumbled across it or took it as part of a student leadership workshop--not sure which came first.


    Or maybe it was during an alien abduction long ago?

    Does the "psychic" option mean I discovered it through my own psychic abilities, or that I heard about it from Ms. Cleo?

    Finally, we know whose fault he is.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I found out about it from the facebook app, but I didn't become interested in it until I Stumbled a website dedicated to it.
