    I didn't know about the MBTI until I took Psychology 101. I took the test not long afterwards. The results largely reflected my self-concept, but the studies associated with the MBTI have been most helpful in my ability to communicate with others.

    Saw the word "introvert" on a forum I frequented two years ago, and though “Wonder what that means…”

    One thing lead to another, and half a year down the road, I knew most things about MBTI.

    A couple of job suitability tests in the military ... minor interest.

    Psych test after the gulf war ... more interest.

    Private psych test after the gulf war ... tested ISTJ ... greater interest.

    Reading Keirsey's works in civilian life ... tested INTJ ... much greater interest.

    Reading Tieger's works, rereading Kiersey ... tested INTP ... greatest interst.

    Heh. Bad motive, excellent subject.

    Edit: very bad motives. Full of trojans. I hear.

    The first time I took an MBTI test I was 16 and came out INFX.
    Took it again in college came out INFJ
    Have taken it a few times in the last few years coming out INFJ and/or INTJ
    Have never taken it 'professionally'

    I liked it much better than the four temperament system with Sanguine/Phlegmatic/Chloreric/Melancholy business.

Eventually I cycle through them all and start over again, at least in terms of creative output.

    I used to be frustrated that I just couldn't do one thing consistently, but I am learning to accept this about myself. The never-ending cycle is just part of how I work.
    This is what I do also. I heard it said that creativity is like that because it's like a field of corn that must lie fallow for a season. That is the way the earth is renewed so that when the next crop is planted, it will have all the nutrients it needs. We are the same way in our creative output.
