    Default How did you find out your type?

    This is sort of a followup to the thread How did you find out about MBTI?

    I took the humanmetrics online test and tested ENTJ, but immediately decided I was an Introvert, retook the test to come out as an INTJ and then mailed those percentages to my then-boss (who had told me about MBTI and suggested I take the test). So despite not testing correctly, I identified my type in about five minutes.

    What's your story?

    And tested correctly, I take it? - Instantaneous identification?

    Well, it wasn't that hard to figure out after she provided an overview, but yes.

    I think I took an online test (this was 10-11 years ago?) and ended up with INTP, then I read all type descriptions.

    I was pretty sure about INTP, but (as many people probably suspect) I did read over the INFP a few times because I did relate to it somewhat... just not as much as the INTP.

    Joe Butt's description of INTP rings very true for me. INFP did not.

    “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

    About four years ago I had a supervisor who was very much into utilizing all of the classes and training sessions that our HR department provides. She took the MBTI class and then had my co-worker and I go take it as well. I came up INFJ, read the descriptions and had a pretty major a-ha moment.

    I took the test in a sociology class at university and came out INTJ, online I come out INTJ and I retook the real test a few months ago and came out INTJ. I wondered at times about the N/S because of my memory for details and ability to remember things, but learning more about the difference aspects of introversion and extraversion I've come to understand this doesn't mean I'm not an iNtuitive.

    I was 17 and took a class offered by the local college's continuing ed program called "Who are you?" or something like that. I've since done a whole lot of self-verification.

    About a year ago a friend told me about MBTI.

    I'd never heard about it before then, though I'd learned about Hippocrates' four humors in school.

    In my mid-30's, I saw a copy of Keirsey's Please Understand Me II laying in my boss' office, so I borrowed it and typed myself. Came out INTJ for a few years until I read the Tieger books and typed myself by actions, rather than test questions. Came out INTP ... realizing that I had been forcing a J stance from years in the military. I've consistently tested INTP for about the last 7 years.
