    I'd like to see more short tests. It could use more questions, or better definitions, but the more you can crystallize a "Type", the better. As a general rule, no one should ever look at typology actually describing the totality of their personality anyways. If they go in with that in mind, and think only in terms of typical "mode" or preference, you single things out.

    So basically, if you already know what type you are, and you can read the questions with an understanding of what type you already know yourself to be, you can figure out what the right answer is?

    I think I'll let things be done with that, as every explanation you offer seems to be more damning to the test than the last.

    Typically, these tests wouldn't be given to anyone who knows their type or about typology. They'd generally have a good idea of just themselves. For all of us wankers, it's not the same experience.

    Yeah you can crystallize types but not quite this much.

    A type that can be crystallized to one phrase is really not that useful when there's only 16 of them. To put everyone in one out of 16 categories, the categories either have to be very broad, or leave out a lot of information. If you go the 'leave out information' route to make things fit more quickly and neatly, then they don't really say much at all as a result.

    I didn't like the item associated with my type.

    I ended up getting INFJ with ISTP and ENTP as runners-up.

    No, no... you're just thinking too hard.

    It asked me what I'd rather do, and there was no option for "walk around a cool city going into book stories, vintage stores, and stopping at a unique bar that also has a restaurant and eating and maybe chatting with some new people" or "having snarky convos with people on the Internet" or "ride a bike on the beach."

    So I picked have a convo with a friend first (INFP), then contemplate my perfect home (I still can't fathom how that's INTJ, I was kind of shocked by that), then discuss how things work in the world (ENTP; I do that on-line, amirite?) and then quietly contemplate practical ideas (ISTJ).

    So.
