    the intro/extro doesn't matter too much with these tests though. But you're still picking your own apples.
    I answered honestly both times. Notice that the test only gauges for E vs. I, N vs. S, T vs. F, and P vs. J rather than the actual functions. The test kind of assumed that feelers don't think and thinkers don't feel.

    I'm not a fan.

    At least this one is consistent.

    Feelers don't value common sense or factual information either. Haven't you heard?
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    The test does seem very inaccurate, but I like the options give to the user.
    Well it's tough because often people don't realize their own motivations. Psychological type is a very nebulous concept that can't always be pinned down precisely.

    I'd say the best you can do is read about functions, talk to close friends who know you very well, and listen to opinions from others who study the same topic, and hopefully you'll reach a consensus.

    No guarantees, though, which is why the scientific community is not too big on this stuff.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    You say to read about the functions. What about type descriptions?


    And did Myers and Briggs come up with function theory too, or not? This system seems flawed when you have all kinds of people chiming in and effectively shaping what it means to people (lenore thompson, keirsey etc)

    Test is way off for me. I usually test INFP but it says I'm an ISTJ.

    Introversion (I): 10 versus Extroversion (E): 5
    Sensing (S): 14 versus Intuition (N): 12
    Thinking (T): 11 versus Feeling (F): 8
    Judging (J): 13 versus Perceiving (P): 5

    Jung "codified" the eight dominant functions, Isabel Briggs Myers and her mom added the aux function...which was implicit in Jung's work...if your question is who first started writing about how, say, Fe functions in ENTPs, I do not know...while there are some legitimate areas of debate in MBTI theory--in part because some things are difficult to measure--I know nobody who disputes that Keirsey's NF/NT/SJ/SP schema is useful, or the emphasis placed on Fe vs. Fi by Tieger and Barron-Tieger, or Linda Berens' (and others) work on interaction styles...and so on...in other words, most of the quibbles are over things like the % of introverts in the gen. pop or what the 6th function of an INTJ really is...the writings about the important things tend to be non-contradictory; simply different people describing the elephant from different vantage points and with differing emphases...

    Being half asleep I didn't realise you could tick more than one option for each question, so first attempt tested as INFP (judging 4/perceiving 6), but I think I am generally stronger on the J.

    Retested answering all options and scored INFJ (J 10/ P 8). Have only done one other test but would agree that my type is pretty evidently consistent.

    Type descriptions are...okay. You have to be careful because everyone and his uncle has written some bullshit description of each type based on really small data sets of interaction with like one person from each one. You get a lot of, "xxxx type will do THIS" because the one person from that type that the author has identified (if he's even correct in this identification) does it, which is silly.

    The best type descriptions I've seen are the firsthand descriptions from each type at Best-Fit Type : Exploring the Multiple Models of Personality Type.

    The discordia inc test said:
