    I first took the test when I was 16 and scored ENFJ, I've taken the test at least 6 more times after that through out the years and still scored ENFJ. Pretty cool stuff <3. I want my workplace to administer the MBTI typology test for team building reasons, we need it :|!

    'Comprehensiveness' and 'intuitive insight' are the key terms here that serve as the fulcrum of modern-day folk typology.
    I think it is possible that your interpretation of the words "comprehensiveness" and "intuitive insight" may mean different things than Lex though I am guessing since he is not here to defend himself. One reason why someone could say that MBTI is more comprehensive than other things is that there is simply so much more literature on it that it is of greater practical utility. In my mind, the important thing is not so much the statistical validity or reliability of an assessment tool. It's about the practical utility of the model. If Lex is an INTJ and he refers to "intuitive insight" then he is likely referring, perhaps unconsciously, to his Ni, which does not require precision of any sort.

Even after having observed people on this forum here for almost a year now, it's hard to know where I stand.

    I completely agree with this Andy. I know someone very well who is an ENFJ with Aspergers. MBTI/Typology seems pretty near useless for him - at least in practical terms.

    ENTP or ESTP (recently), usually.

    I sometimes test introvert, but that mostly depends on my mood when I'm taking it.

For those people, looking at the functions (and the spectrums, as you said) can be very helpful.

    From everything you've said about yourself, I agree that ESTJ fits you better than ISTJ. Maybe you could identify as an "eSTJ"?
    Right, and like you said before, any aspie's type will look different than neurotypicals of that type. I've thought of that alternative identification, but I'm pretty sure I am indeed extroverted overall.

    That's pretty much it. What the MBTI was supposed to be useful for, for example, making career and major decisions, isn't going to be helpful in my case.

    that's not what it is for, is it? i mean, i think it was just academic interest on jung's part at first, then later, it's had wider application.. not just jobs, but theories on relationships, social interaction styles, helping people understand where others come from a bit more. it still could be helpful for you. do what you want with it.

    Good question. What is it for? Maybe:

    - Understanding others a little better which helps us to appreciate and accept the differences. If you know what somebody's type is, it does give you some level of insight into what they are like.
    - Understanding yourself a little better. In that light, it can be used for self development.

    I do think it can be used to help you figure out what kind of job you may want if it is combined with other things - like the strong interest inventory and personal inquiry. However, it might be best at helping you to narrow down a list of options vs. helping you to figure out the job you'd really love. If you have a job that is heavily counter to your preferences, it is predictable that you would be under more stress than one that is aligned.

    I don't think it can be used very well to predict behavior.

I think that the Enneagram and MBTI are much more useful combined than they are separated. An INFP 7 is going to be much different from an INFP 4, for example.
    Yes, I have always gotten RCOEI on SLOAN, and am 5w4. Honestly 5w4 in conjunction with the instinctual variants (I'm sp/so) has been much more eye-opening to me on a personal level than mbti ever was.... so definitely agree w/ you re. enneagram in conjunction with mbti = more comprehensive view of personality.

    I've tested as 14 different types.. never ISFJ or ESFJ, but all the others, yeah. Usually I've needed just a slightly different mindset to genuinely score as a different type. That's the thing with the typology system: deviate ever so slightly from the XXXX type, and you will score as anything. Scoring 51% or 49% on any scale will make all the difference.

    Why did they devise a system where every type is adjacent to every other type?

    Probably around 6. It is not the fault of the tests; you can't take a test to discover your type. There are no short-cuts, you have to understand the material you are identifying with.

    I've got five already. I want to collect all 16!
    ENTP, INTP close second (E vs I hugely depends on the ration of 'need interaction to function' vs 'love socializing and gossiping' questions)
    two or three ENFPs, one ESTJ (S? J??) and one INFJ (J again?!). I thought the J types would be the most difficult for me to get followed by the S types. I'm actually surprised no test came up with INFP yet, the one which would complete my NP collection.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
