    Are you guys talking about The Big Five test? The estimate for your type there is based on your Big Five results. They assume that there's a direct relationship between Openness and intuition, Conscientiousness and judging, and Agreeableness and feeling. My friend who tested as ENTJ on another test got ENFJ on this one because of her high agreeableness rating.

    Haha, that happened to me once too. It was because I had confused the "agree" and "disagree" columns.

    I tested ENFJ on that one, too, because of high conscientiousness and agreeableness. The fact that there's a correlation between Big Five traits and MBTI dichotomies doesn't mean that one dictates the other, and, unfortunately, I think that test forgets that.

    I thought the test that everyone was talking about here was this one.. I tested ENFP. One of the most stereotypical ENTP personalities I know got ESTJ on it, and over half of my friends' results are ENFJ

    I agree that facebook MB quiz is a bit grating. Many of my friends now feel confident with types which I don't agree as being suitable for them, and it's left me with the task of reminding myself of all the reasons why it shouldn't bother me. It's a petty annoyance, but an annoyance none-the-less.

    So far, eighteen of my friends (not including me) have taken that quiz on Facebook. For every single person, the test results have been within one letter of what I would have guessed, with more being spot on than one letter off. It also got my type correct, but that may be because I knew what to answer to get my desired type.

    Facebook has updated and fixed their MyType (MBTI) App scoring system.

    It's now one of the most accurate on the internet.

    The latest one that's making the rounds on Facebook seems pretty accurate. I got ENTP and my gf got INFJ, which is spot on. It seemed to type most of my friends accurately too, though there were a few surprises. Not sure if this was the test or my personal assessment of what type I thought they'd be. I've been wrong before. . .

    I took the test about a week back and got ENFJ. That's pretty bad. The questions sucked, and I don't think the default Facebook multiple-choice format works very well with Jung/Myers-Briggs anyway.

    Am I talking about the same Facebook quiz?
    I 79.65%
    N 67.34%
    T 80.53%
    P 75.76%

    Whoops! I just noticed there are two Facebook MBTI apps that at one point had nearly the same profile picture. The one that's being discussed in this thread (i.e. the one Lady X posted) is bogus. This one is good.

    So far me and 17 of my friends have taken the test Laughingebony just posted and it's spot on in all but one who is an IxFJ and it typed her INTJ. Otherwise, not one error in what I would type them as, even the people who had never taken it before. I'm saying that to account for those that may know how to manipulate the results.

    Yayyyyy. It really works.

    ESFJ (Extraversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgment)
    You are warmhearted, conscientious, and cooperative. You want harmony in your environment, and work with determination to establish it. You like to work with others to complete tasks accurately and on time. You are loyal and follow through even in small matters. You notice what others need in their day-by-day lives and try to provide it. You want to be appreciated for who you are and for what you contribute.
    “I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”
