    Default The absolute most accurate MBTI test

    I'm trying to find out what people think is the most accurate test. I want to narrow it down to one. You've got these:

    Personality test based on Jung - Myers-Briggs typology

    Free Jung Personality Test

    Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes

    MyPersonality.info - Personality Types and Multiple Intelligences Tests & Information

    Discordia Inc. - Just who the HELL do you THINK you are?

    Free personality tests: find out your type


    Please vote in the coming-soon poll, and also give some feedback here in the thread. Also if there are any other options, please suggest, thanks.

    For me, the tests that measure cognitive functions, such as the third one in your list, seem to be more consistent than those that measure pure dichotomies.

    I think this one is my favorite. It incorporates everyday situations rather than asking people to make generalizations about themselves that obviously correspond to one type or another.

    Dichotomy tests tend to view weakness in one area as necessarily preferring the opposite, or valuing a certain area as having strength in that area. That's not entirely accurate. Being a T isn't about being a prick to people, and being a J doesn't mean that you can never have fun.

    As I've just mentioed in another thread, the Singer-Loomis Type Deployment Inventory.
    Sounds very good (measures both processes and dichotomies), but I cannot find where you can take it. Probably not offered online, nor free. (Or, is it disqualified for not being found online?)
    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)

    I must say, this is the most inaccurate MBTI result I have ever received. Coincidentally, I have never scored as anything other than INTP, up to this point.


    EDIT: Thinking about it now, if each question deals with the joint activity of two, opposite functions, then I can see why I would receive this result.

    While I often use Ne and Si simultaneously, I generally use Ti on its own, rather than coupled with Fe.

    Weird... these function based tests always give me the SFJ result. I don't know why.
    Se with Ni ***************** (17.5)
    poor use
    Si with Ne ***************************************** (41.5)
    excellent use
    Ne with Si ***************************************** (41.5)
    excellent use
    Ni with Se ***************** (17.5)
    poor use
    Te with Fi ********************** (22.5)
    poor use
    Ti with Fe ************************************** (38.5)
    excellent use
    Fe with Ti ************************************** (38.5)
    excellent use
    Fi with Te ********************** (22.5)
    poor use
    Summary Analysis of Profile
    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive dynamics, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ESFJ
    The corresponding best-fit cognitive pattern:

    If these results don't fit well then consider these types: ISFJ, or ENTP

    I took it and got ESTJ.

    Maybe it's not my favorite.

    I think Engler is right; function combination questions should be supplemented with standalone function questions. If one uses Ne-Si in tandem, but uses Ne more than Si, this would be shown.

    This leads me to wonder if there are any good MBTI tests..

    I got ENTJ on that test.
    That function combinations make sense though.

    Cognitive Dynamic Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    Se with Ni ******************************** (32)
    good use
    Si with Ne ************************** (26)
    average use
    Ne with Si ************************** (26)
    average use
    Ni with Se ******************************** (32)

    Te with Fi ********************************** (34)
    good use
    Ti with Fe **************************** (28)

    Fe with Ti **************************** (28)
    average use
    Fi with Te ********************************** (34)
    good use

    I rather like the cognitive functions one. It indicated something I previously have suspected: that I have very strong ENFP tendencies. This suggests I am rather borderline. I'm still sure I'm an INFP but its nice to have the more complex results.

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ******************* (19.3)

    excellent use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ****************************** (30)
    average use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) *********** (11.7)
