    Default So now I'm INTJ?

    I took the humanmetrics test again. Last time I took it (a few weeks ago) I got the result of ISTJ. I also took another MBTI test online (don't remember what it was) and got ISTJ. Tonight however, I got INTJ.

    ???

    Nearly everyone swings on a letter sometimes.
    But if you hardly ever change from your original type, then you probably shouldn't take it too seriously.

    Out of the tons of times I've taken the test, I've come out as an INTJ twice(usually when I was thinking too hard).
    With such a low rate of variance, I think it's safe to assume that I'm still an INTP.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Cool. Well answer me this: What is more desirable a personality, ISTJ or INTJ?

    Haha.
    You know I can't answer that. It's totally subjective.
    For me, personally, I have a harder time relating to ISTJs.
    Even then, I know they are better for some things than an INTJ is.

    Dude, I've tested ENTJ on that test before. And ISTP, which would be more likely but still probably just me being in a weird mood when I took it.

    From some posts of mine in DaRick's introduction thread:

    (...)

    Yeah, I can't say I blame intelligent S's for not self-identifying as such upon reading their descriptions.

    Types I have tested as while taking the tests as honestly as I could...

    INFP, INFJ, INTJ, INTP, ENFJ, ISFP (In that order of number of test results)

    But if you look at the individual temparments it's usually pretty easy to figure out where you fall.

    SJ -The Guardian's core needs are for group membership and responsibility. Guardians need to know they are doing the responsible thing. They value stability, security and a sense of community. They trust hierarchy and authority and may be surprised when others go against these social structures. Guardians know how things have always been done, and so they anticipate where things can go wrong. They have a knack for attending to rules, procedures, and protocol.

    NT - The Rational's core needs are for mastery of concepts, knowledge, and competence. Rationals want to understand the operating principles of the universe and to learn or even develop theories for everything. They value expertise, logical consistency, concepts and ideas, and seek progress. They abstractly analyze a situation and consider previously un-thought-of possibilities. Research, analysis, searching for patterns, and developing hypotheses are quite likely to be their natural modus operandi.

    NF - The Idealist's core needs are for the meaning and significance that come from having a sense of purpose and working toward some greater good. Idealists need to have a sense of unique identity. They value unity, self-actualization, and authenticity. Idealists prefer cooperative interactions with a focus on ethics and morality. Idealists tend to be gifted at unifying diverse peoples and helping individuals realize their potential. They build bridges between people through empathy and clarification of deeper issues.

    SP - The Artisan's core needs are to have the freedom to act without hindrance and to see a marked result from action. Artisans highly value aesthetics, whether in nature or art. Their energies are focused on skillful performance, variety, and stimulation. Artisans tend to be gifted at employing the available means to accomplish an end. Their creativity is revealed by the variety of solutions they come up with. They are talented at using tools, whether the tool be language, theories, a paint brush, or a computer.

    I chose INFJ because it is the NF type that displays the most NT traits.

    Similar to Kiddo, I've basically tested out as ALL of the INxx's at various points, and depending on the test. INFJ and INTJ historically have been the most common. But testing INTJ I believe is simply the result of my becoming very analytical when I take any sort of test.

    Stepping back and looking at how I interact with others, my motivations, and what makes me 'tick', I'm very much NF. I don't really care about NT stuff, basically (even though I can be quite analytical/logical and am NT in my current job), and NT isn't really my 'guiding force' in life. :-) And actually when I'm just being uninhibitively ME, outside of work, there's like zero NT, in terms of what I talk about and how I approach things.

    So yeah, the temperament stuff is helpful.

    I've tested as an INFJ; INTP; INTJ and ENTJ.

    I think one's psychological state determines (alongside many other variables) the ultimate direction of the test.

    No clear determination as to accuracy is necessarily offered. Theories are patchwork and should be considered empirically open to revision, if only to avoid stagnation.
