    I'm shocked when anyone has a rate of success beyond 50%. I wouldn't just trust any old test, though, either.

    he makes lists, he makes plans, he arrives places promptly, he straightens pictures and pillows and even organizes his shirts by type, color and hangs them all the same direction in the closet

    how could I not have noticed it's like living with Monk!

    (oddly, I love it...)

    and to Elaur, you're the smart one
    My wife is actually working on not doing these things or atleast limiting it. Her dad is an STJ and that is how he is. Down to making sure the spacing between each hanger is the same.
    Im out, its been fun

    I havnt had anyone verify their type and use it more as a personal understanding that changes and more tie together situations and understandings. I hink I do better with the last 3 letters. From what I read E/I is better to use first impression and J/P is best to determine after they have settled into things. The hard part though is that J/P can invert all the functions.

    I find it easiest to use the test as a springboard and then discuss the components with the person so that they understand things and can decide for themselves and you can both discuss how their behavior and thought patterns would fit in the scheme of things!

    Exactly. We all know everyone loves talking about themselves. What better than their own special personality type.

    Lets see, what story do I have about an embarrassing mistyping? I had a pseudo-intellectual philosophy major help me write my first book and at times we discussed my project to come, the Principles of Typology. He once told me that everyone is an ENFP because they all seem just like him. To this person's mind, every person has a jovial, upbeat as well as attention seeking nature and they must therefore be all ENFPs. I don't know why he assumed that if a person is jovial, upbeat and attention seeking, he must be an ENFP; but nonetheless, this is what he did.

    I imagine Solitarywalker with curlers in his hair, in a pink bathrobe, waving his cane at small children passing by his home, and growling, "Stop using folk typology, you whipper-snappers!".

    Hi, Whatevs! I was just wondering if you thought much about his functions. My husband tested INTJ at first because he uses a lot of N for his work, yet he didn't jive as an INTJ. It wasn't until I started looking at functions that I knew, and know, without a doubt (mostly) that he is ISTP. This is because he used Ti all the time, followed by Se. ISTJs are very different really, because they would use Si, followed by Te. Si is a tricky function to identify, but Si people won't notice quite as much around them as Se-ers, in my experience, and what they do notice they will run through a subjective list of catalogued memories relating to the theme of the object they are regarding. Se will just notice everything, but more objectively.
