    (Without any 'somewhats' due to the nature of the questions):

    Type Percent
    Vigilant 71%
    Solitary 43%
    Idiosyncratic 67%
    Adventurous 36%
    Mercurial 63%
    Dramatic 75%
    Self - Confident 67%
    Sensitive 57%
    Devoted 33%
    Concientous 78%
    Leisurely 56%
    Aggressive 38%
    Self - Sacrificing 38%

    I don't really identify with the Dramatic/Vigilant ones. I do identify with the Conscientious one though. So according to the test, I'm Conscientious/Dramatic/Vigilant. According to my own judgement, I'm Sensitive/Inventive/Serious, with Conscientious being the fourth one.
    MBTI: INFJ (I: 100% N:58% F: 58% J: 84%)
    Socionics: INFJ

    Looking at the descriptions, I feel like Inventive fits me really quite well... however it isn't a result on the test, where I got:

    Idiosyncratic 83%
    Mercurial 75%
    Dramatic 75%

    Sensitive 57%
    Leisurely 56%
    Adventurous 55%
    Self - Confident 50%
    Devoted 44%
    Self - Sacrificing 44%
    Vigilant 29%
    Aggressive 25%
    Solitary 14%
    Concientous 6%

    The funny thing is that in school I always got comments like 'She's very conscientious' on my report. And yet here it's my lowest. LOL. I don't think I've changed that much...

    The ones that scored more than 50% do seem to apply to me in varying amounts, though I'm not so sure about the order.
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    Default I read the descriptions

    Though I'm not sure that jives with Oldham's definitions. I probably should have scrolled down a bit first.

    Serious and Solitary standout as the ones I relate to the most.

    I used to be incredibly Aggressive when I was young.
    I am Artistic in that I am a songwriter and singer.
    I am Conscientious in that I am perfectionistic and when I do something I do it well,
    but I have a feeling he is referring to someone who has a lot of energy and gets a lot done, and that's not me.
    I am more Idiosyncratic than I care to admit.
    I am very much Inventive. I have been coming up with ideas for inventions since I was a kid.
    Surprisingly, I related to Mercurial quite a bit. I was thinking it was a P thing, but I guess not.

    I'm a mixture of Aggressive and Vigilant, with aspects of Self-Confident.

    It seems like the list in the test is a litle different from the list in the OP.

    Leisurely 61%
    Idiosyncratic 50%
    Concientous 50%
    Mercurial 38%
    Vigilant 36%
    Solitary 36%
    Self - Confident 33%
    Dramatic 31%
    Self - Sacrificing 25%
    Sensitive 14%
    Adventurous 14%
    Aggressive 6%
    Devoted 0%

    There is nothing wrong with being leisurely right? I took it while I was procrastinating on something.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I took the online test...

    Vigilant 36%
    Solitary 14%
    Idiosyncratic 39%
    Adventurous 36%
    Mercurial 56%
    Dramatic 69%
    Self - Confident 56%
    Sensitive 43%
    Devoted 39%
    Concientous 39%
    Leisurely 50%
    Aggressive 25%
    Self - Sacrificing 56%

    So highest 5 are:

    I don't know....again I'm not sure that tests are reliable for me; I don't think I interpret the questions well.
    Reading the descriptions, I think Idiosyncratic and Sensitive should be a bit higher up for me, and I could also relate to Artistic and Serious (although doesn't look like those two are part of the online test???). Self-confident should be a bit lower. As for the others..I don't know. 'Dramatic' makes me laugh, as externally I'm not dramatic at all, even though I might be tumultuous within (but I do show emotions amongst loved ones and maybe I am dramatic. ;-).

    The descriptions I read that definitely do not resonate - Solitary, Aggressive, Vigilant, Devoted, and Conscientious.

    I don't know....I don't really like any of the descriptions. I can't say any single one or two is really me - maybe a combo of 5 or 6 though??

    I am an INTP.

    Your Personality Profile Type(s): Solitary

    Need no one but themselves. Liberated from the drive to impress and please. Remarkably free of the emotions & involvements that distract others.

    Vigilant - 50%
    Solitary - 71%

    Idiosyncratic - 28%
    Adventurous - 36%
    Mercurial - 50%
    Dramatic - 13%
    Self - Confident - 39%
    Sensitive - 43%
    Devoted - 39%
    Concientous - 33%
    Leisurely - 28%
    Aggressive - 31%
    Self - Sacrificing - 6%

    I took the test again ( link) because I just got Oldham's book.

    Idiosyncratic 61%
    Leisurely 61%
    Conscientious 56%
    Self - Sacrificing 50%
    Self - Confident 44%
    Mercurial 38%
    Dramatic 31%
    Solitary 29%
    Sensitive 29%
    Aggressive 25%
    Adventurous 23%
    Devoted 22%
    Vigilant 21%

    Same one Athenian200 linked.

    Conscientious? me? In some respects, it seems.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
