    Default NFs-Would you alter your personality test to get a job?

    Ifyou were very interested in getting a job and If you had to take a perosnality test to get it, would you answer authentically or would you attempt to answer the test the way you thought the people who were hiring you wanted you to answer?

    Would you refuse to take the test?

    Be honest now!

    Absolutely! I'd adjust it according to the job too, like ESFJ for a customer service job.

    I'd probably highlight my strengths (related to Ne and Te) and throw in some Fe and Si stuff for good measure. I'll be a Ne - Te - Fe - Si god

    Authentically! If the employer didnt like my answers then I'd look for a job elsewhere. I don't wanna work somewhere where I can't be myself. I actually discussed this with my mom earlier - I want to get my ears pierced so I can wear little studs but she thinks I'll look too unprofessional when applying for internships and such in the future (even if I took them out for the interview). It's stupid how a guy is viewed as unprofessional for having ear piercings when women wear them all the time. Stupid society.

    I'd tell them whatever I thought they wanted to hear.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Exactly. I don't know why anyone would do otherwise.

    yes. because it's stupid that you might not get a job because of a personality test. unfair. ...i mean, if you take an interview and you are obviously not apt for the job, then great. but that a valid person gets cut from a job because of a test...no. so yeah, i'd fake my way through any test to get a job.


    ...i think at my work place was is really required is Te and Si. and a pinch of Ne here and then. but this Te/Si thing wears me out. not to mention my Fi, which only comes out to play in the evenings

    I'm not an NF, but I'd definately answer truthfully regardless of my type. If the employer is stupid enough not to hire me because my personality isn't what (s)he'd expect, I'm happy not to get employed.

    If I was a boss, I'd hire people who are different.

    You know, Jung put Ne as the type most likely to gravitate towards retail/sales/politics and stuff.

    "Merchants, contractors, speculators, agents, politicians, etc., commonly belong to this type."

    I don't know why I'm pointing this out, I am le bored.
