    I discovered MBTI back in 1996, when I was 27 or so.
    I'm 40 now.

    Finding it was an "aha!" moment for me, and really changed my attitude towards myself and others. Lots less guilt, lots less resentment. I finally knew (generally) who I was and that I wasn't 'weird' ... or alone.

    INtP from the first despite looking and studying types and functions and whatever else. I just really like using my N publicly more than my T; and even when I think privately, I tend to focus more on exploration first and making sure all options were considered.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Age discovered: 17 or so

    Current: 25

    Type: INFP

    I first discovered it through this horrible book my sister had called Love Types. I tested INTP, and the description was so awful it brought me to tears. Over the years, I took various online tests and read profiles and generally felt I was INF (didn't understand the functions yet), but I didn't really get into MBTI until this past year.

    Though I did run into it in final year of school. It told me to do a whole lot of jobs I'd never considered, so I thought yeh, whatever, bs test. Would like to find out what I tested as though. I've got a feeling it was ENFP, but not positive.

    I think it was in my early twenties I first saw it. I took the test in Keirsey's book. I didn't take much notice. I must have tested as INFJ because I remember boasting "I'm Gandhi!" to all my friends at the time.

    It wasn't until I was thirty seven that I really took an interest. I'm thirty nine now.

    I first came across the MBTI in the form of an article about using typology to develop fictional characters. After reading that article, one of the first things I did was to take a test, which gave me INTJ for my type. I somewhat identified with the profile, especially the part about their leadership style, but not nearly enough to take the MBTI seriously. That has since changed; I now take it about as seriously as I do any theory--which isn't saying much.
