Your personality type is probably ENTP (or perhaps ENFP). In case you are one of the 15% for whom this result is not correct, you should regard this as a starting point only and use this report to decide for yourself what your personality type is.
The first way to look at your personality type is in terms of the four preference scales. On this basis your type is INTP, but when we use another method (pattern matching) we reach a different conclusion, that your type is ENTP or ENFP.
answers with the average patterns for each of the sixteen personality types. This can sometimes leads to a different result than the previous screen for various reasons which we won't go into now but are described in the full report. Your scores, which show how closely your personality matches each overall pattern, are:
This table suggests that your preferences are most likely to be for ENTP or ENFP.
If your personality type is ENTP then you are someone who challenges the status quo, seeking to uncover the hidden potential or new possibilities in different situations. You start projects and introduce change on an experimental basis, not knowing fully what is going to happen, but in the expectation that it will lead to an improvement. You enjoy the challenge of doing something that has not been done before and seems impossible.
Function Attitude Scores
Your mental muscle diagram suggests:
■your dominant function is iNtuition and fairly balanced
■your auxiliary (second most important) is Thinking and very introverted
■your tertiary (third) is Feeling and very introverted
■your inferior (fourth) is Sensation and fairly balanced
What does this mean?
The most important mental muscle (or 'dominant function') for an ENTP is the perceptive one of iNtuition. This means you like looking at information from a global viewpoint, spotting new patterns and relationships, that lead to an understanding of the key issues. You tend to focus more on possibilities for the future than the here-and-now, and you enjoy change, challenge, and variety.
The perceptive iNtuition function is extraverted. That is, iNtuition is used primarily to govern the outer world of actions and spoken words. You therefore try ideas out in practice, to explore new possibilities and discover, by experience, which ones work. You prefer to change procedures to see if any improvement can be made, rather than just operate them. You therefore take an evolutionary approach to development, perhaps with an eye on the strategy which can change. You are more interested in exploring ideas than bringing them to closure.
