    Default Finetuning your MBTI percentages

    I have an idea that percentages are widely based on how we think about the opposite of our preferences and how others express the opposite of our preferences.

    The E/I scale will be harder to judge if you're basing the answer off of interactions or observations of forum members. The E/I difference is quite obscure over the internet. Think of what E or I is actually defined as, and is displayed as in real life, as well as all other preferences. Don't necessarily base this off of how well you get along with a certain type here on the internet, because you are likely overlooking the principle of a specific preference.


    Only answer these questions for the 4 (four) preferences you have, even if you can answer it for the ones (four) you don't have.

    For each preference, answer a, b, or c:

    a) I have a dislike of a lot of attitudes/understanding of the opposite preference, even if I don't express it.

    b) I only have a dislike of attitudes/understanding of the opposite preference if it is deliberately conveyed toward me. I may see the benefits of them, but they are not so applicable to me.

    c) I am either indifferent to the attitudes/understanding of the opposite preference, or I frequently find benefits that apply to me when they're expressed.


    If you answered (a), the percentage will be about the same.

    If you answered (b), divide the percentage into thirds, and this percentage will be 2/3 of the original.

    If you answered (c), even obtaining a high score, the percentage will be close to 1/3 of the original.


    Your results of course can be averaged. They're continuous ratios.


    Finetuning is just an experiment, so we'll see where it leads (I am mostly concerned that the third-splitting is not accurate enough),

    and if you're then

    a, what does this mean?

    well , I cannot get along very well with my opposiute ISFJ. or Si. I find Si and attention to details is really unimportant in real life.

    You're untypable, you shouldn't have percentages

    If you have any of the four preferences, you should test them one at a time.

    No, it's the little things that make the difference in the big picture.

    Actually, lemons, what led me to finally figure out my type was to look at preferences I really didn't like.. so I think there might be some validity to what you're saying here.

    I agree, but I don't see how finetuning percentages is that important of a project, well unless you are actually interested in MBTI.

    Hmm... I'm not sure if I'm getting this. So I guess you can explain it to me! Like you always do.

    60% introverted/40% extroverted- B
    55% intuitive/45% sensing- C
    51% feeling/49% thinking- C
    60% perceiving/40% judging- B

    Oh well, you first have to supply the percentages to the 50+ range, 50 being the minimum... 100% A being about 92, 100% B being about 75%, 100% C being about 58%.

    Averaging out the answers is the most accurate way for this to work.

    Your averaged scores:
    68% Introverted
    56% Intuitive
    54% Feeling
    68% Perceiving

    There's not too much difference.
