    Default What do people assume your type is? (in real life!)

    Many people have told me that (after a little bit of time of getting to know me) that I appear to be an INTJ or an ISTP. Of course, I've only tested in the latter, and in no way am I a J...it's merely the vibe I give off when I'm in certain situations.

    What do people in your life assume your type is?

    I'm often assumed to be more introverted than I am

    People I've known in Corporate America: mostly ENTJ
    Business partners/grassroots co-volunteers: all INFJ
    People who have known me from school: mostly ENTP and ENFP
    My closest friends and family: INFJ(husband, mother, best friend), xNTP(other best friend), or INFP(an aunt)

    Most of the above is from a Facebook app. My close family, friends and I have taken the MMDI on behalf of each other.

    I don't think I have enough friends who are into the MBTI! I haven't had anyone make a guess on this.

    I did ask a few friends to take one of the tests (humanmetrics, I think) and told them upfront I was INFJ (which I had concluded partly on the basis of the test and partly through research into that type and others). Two of them also came back as INFJ - one had already tested that way years ago - and they said it made sense them now how similar we were in many ways and how difficult it was to find people like "us"

    EDIT: I should add, though, that if I describe myself to people as an introvert they are often quite surprised and say "really? but you're great with people" or something like that. It is actually a little disheartening to find that introverts are thought to be not great with people... But they often say I seem quite outgoing.

    The thing is, if I get to the stage with someone where I am talking about how I'm an introvert, they are probably someone I feel quite comfortable with, and so I might seem quite "extroverted" with them.

    wow, you know people in real life who have heard of MBTI? Where do you find em?

    I don't know anybody IRL who has heard of MBTI except for those I told (and none of them followed it up). However on first meeting me I rarely show people an "INTP" personality. Depending on the context, I emphasize J-ness, F-ness or S-ness more. So people who have met me a few times will often subconsciously classify me within what us who have heard of MBTI would class as, varyingly, INTJ, XXFX or XSTX stereotypes.

    Another thing - it really amazes me the extent to which most people classify you on meeting. I never did this, and had no diea people do it. But I've realized that it really throws people, for example, that I might turn up with short gelled hair, looking like I go to the gym, talking like a commoner, and then suddenly say something theoretical or compassionate. It's qute funny how presumptious people are, really.

    Well, we took a class in high school where we had to take the MBTI test...
    It was funny, because I tested ENTP (the same with this other girl, which at first doesn't seem like I'm anything like her) and everyone seemed incredibly shocked, mostly because I tested E.

    And my parents took it, and a few other people I know from college and work have taken it as well.

    and this. Fodder for misanthropy, that.


    Even if they know about mbti, which is not far-fetched, the act of quoting a type outside of the context of some type-based workshop or discussion seems odd. All I could manage are wild conjectures based on assessments they choose to voice.

    I have to agree with most here - most people I know do not know enough of MBTI, enneagram or multiple intelligences to classify me. Tho I do like that LOL

    An INTx I hung out with a few times years and years ago apparently thought I was the same type as he (we have a mutual friend.. I guess he was surprised when she told him I was actually her type, infj. But then she and I come across very differently, so there's that).

    An INTJ I've started seeing a lot of also had kind of an 'You're F? Huh' response the 2nd time we met up. (he's familiar with many of the psychological typing systems)

    So I guess I'm not an obvious F.

    I'm almost the only person who I know of knows a bit about MBTI, but this is what people would assume if they knew MBTI too:

    Friends: ENFP, ENTP or ESTP
    Classmates: INTJ
    Teachers: INTP
    Dutch relatives: ISTJ
    Hungarian relatives: ENFJ
    Dad: ISTJ
    Mom: ENFP
    Strangers: ESFP
    Old acquaintances: ENTP or ESTP
    Other acquaintanses: ENTP or ESTP
    Enemies: ISTP

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
