    Smile Soooo... what got YOU interested in personality types?

    Yeah... so I don't mean to sound snotty but YES, I am in the gifted program. We took it for a project. Actually, I was the only ENFP. Anyway, yeah, your turn. :P

    I had a problem getting along with a guy who worked for me. I bought a book about the stuff so I could try to understand him. Though I wasn't sure of his type (probably ENFJ), it did give me a much better appreciation for the differences between people.

    I saw a thread entitled what is your type or something on a forum that I regular, and I took the test and became interested, I've gotten both my parents and a friend to do it now. My dad is ENFJ and my mom is INFJ.

    I took the MBTI as a way to help narrow down college majors. Ended up testing as INTP. (Which I obviously doubt at this point.) But yeah, that is what started it all for me.

    In high school I wanted every book from the New Age/Self-Help/Psychology section. I picked up something or other to do with MBTI in my phase where I was also trying to learn to meditate and teach myself yoga. I think I was a senior in high school.

    I didn't return to personality theory seriously until I was almost 30 years old, and that's because I wanted to decide once and for all what my type really was (everyone has had the "hey wait I get different results" experience, for the most part.)

    Boy, did I have a lot to learn.

    Found it a couple of years ago, during a chaotic time in my life. Originally tested as INTP, realized things didn't quite add up, decided that INFP fits me a lot more. I really got into the whole thing because it gave me a lot of insight about people a.k.a. vile creatures from hell itself (of course I'm kidding. sort of). So there, don't mean to sound stupid or anything, but something tells me near every INFP would have an automatic interest in things like typology.

    I'm curious, which mbti types were more represented?

    To answer the question, it was kinda random...I first heard about mbti maybe 5 years ago, but at the time I thought :
    a) humans are too adaptive to be fixed within personality categories
    b) that would be a way of limiting myself

    Then, one day I was bored and randomly decided to take the test. Surprisingly, it made a lot of sense. My initial concerns are still valid, but the additional knowledge proved to be very enlightening.
