    Default # 11

    11. If you are in charge of a group, would you:
    (a) be firm, but fair
    (b) be uncomfortable
    (c) be persuasive

    Maybe c. I don't mind leading at all, actually I kind of like it. I love input from the people I'm leading but at the same time I think I have decent persuasive skills.

    a - Are you sort of a "strict" person in a firm sort of way? But even in your firmness,you are fair. Some people have a hard time being firm with others. They would not choose this option.

    b - since you "kind of like" leading, leave b blank.

    If you have "decent persuasive skills", definitely click c.

    Default #12 & #13

    This one was difficult, I thought.

    12. If you are romantically interested in someone, do you:
    (a) seek some kind of resolution
    (b) see what happens
    (c) fantasise about what could happen, however unrealistic

    All of the above. If I was single it would be a combination of a & b. Now that I'm married it definitely C

    You need to answer these questions as you would have when you were in your late teens or early 20's.

    a or b - would you have pursued someone, or would you have waited to see if they would pursue you?

    c - Did you have a tendency to fantasize about relationships when you were young. Would you think about marrying the person, having children, deciding where you would live, etc, and they don't even know you exist?


    13. At a party do you:
    (a) interact with many people and enjoy it
    (b) leave early if you aren't enjoying it
    (c) observe what happens with interest

    Eh..none really. I will immediately find familiar faces and strike up conversations and enjoy myself.

    You should probably just choose a since it seems like the closest.

    14. On TV do you watch primarily:
    (a) soaps and dramas
    (b) science fiction (e.g. 'X Files', 'Star Trek')
    (c) nothing in particular - you prefer to go out
    None. I only watch HGTV, A & E, reality TV shows like Survivor, Super Nanny, some movies (comedies, mysteries, thrillers) and some news

    If you don't "prefer to go out" choose a.
    This was poorly asked, I thought.
    I don't watch any of those. I watch sit-coms, so I chose drama because it was the closest.

    17. Would you prefer to have:
    (a) many friends
    (b) a few, close friends
    (c) opportunities to help your friends
    I'd like to have many friends if I had the time, but I don't so I'm happy to have a few, close friends.

    How were you when you were young?
    Reconsider whether c is something that is true for you.

    Default #24 #25 #28 #32

    24. If something needs doing (a report; the washing up) do you prefer to:
    (a) have a system for dealing with it
    (b) do it as soon as possible
    (c) do it when it has to be done (not at all, if possible)
    I have no idea. Just depends on what it is. If pressed a & c

    a - if you get the "flylady" email that reminds you to go "shine your sink" you have a system.
    b - if you hate a sink full of dirty dishes and a floor that needs vacuuming so you do it so it'll get done on your timetable, choose this.
    c - if you avoid doing the dishes or making the bed until you absolutely have to, choose this.

    25. In your spare time, do you like to:
    (a) conserve your energy for when you need it
    (b) read books or watch films
    (c) be physically active
    None. I prefer to lunch with my friends and shop.
    Choose c.

    27. Do you think people would accuse you of:
    (a) being closed off
    (b) being too ruled by your principles
    (c) being swayed by your values
    I don't know. Not a.

    b - is said of people who are too hard headed, too driven by rules and logic
    c - is said of people who are too soft hearted, too swayed by peoples' feelings and opinions

    28. Would you like your friends to see you as:
    (a) devoted
    (b) flexible
    (c) helpful at organising things
    Completely depends on the situation or issue.

    Which one do you think you are the best at?

    32. Is your usual strategy:
    (a) plan ahead
    (b) analyse and implement
    (c) adapt as you go
    Ahh....I don't know. I do all of the above. Because I'm future oriented and break down my goals I'm obviously planning some things ahead. This tends to be for my major life goals, but more most things it might be B. Sometimes C for less critical things.

    a & c seem to be intended to be opposites of each other.
    Once again, you need to think of the most frequent, natural tendency, especially when you were younger. Which do you prefer?

    It seems like b might be a good description for you as you have mentioned several times how you break a goal down and then work on it.

    I don't know.
    Maybe you're more extraverted than you thought, or perhaps you'll come up with different results once you make 2 choices for each question.

    I didn't address the questions that you already had 2 answers for.

    If you're still confused about any choices you have to make, feel free to ask again. I don't mind clarifying.

    For me, Definitely c, However when it comes to a & b, it's a conflict really. Usually cautious in the beginning, prone to mis-reading due to my preference for c so I tend to be more b, while at same time I'm fighting my desire for a, so I tend to flop back and forth between a & b quite a bit.

    This is one of the ones I wanted to pick all 3 on
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    Fe/Fi 36.9/37.7
    Ne/Ni 34.9/25.8
    Se/Si 25.7/19.5
    Te/Ti 28.4/31.9
    Type: 2w% sx/sp/so

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Thanks INTJMOM - you are a big help. Obviously you understand what the questions are trying to get at whereas I see many of them as just being vague. I shall try this quiz again tomorrow using your translations

    Agreed. I think thats the best one out there.


    My brother is an ISTP, and he is a bit less typical than the standard model. He is basically a fact machine. He can digest facts faster than anyone I've ever met, and he can call people out when they disrupt his factual collection. He doesn't portray the typical 'fearless' mentality that is seen in other ISTP's I've come across, but when you ask him certain questions pertaining to how he perceives life, it becomes evident that his view on life is far more fearless than normal. But, like I said, it doesn't show in his general behavior or come up in conversation without asking about it.

    He is really laid back and wrestles at University of Chicago... studying Biology and Psychology. He has the potential to make a career out of either field pretty easily, but I wouldn't ever really see him make any significant breakthroughs. He can be really useful to me from an intellectual point of view (I'm Biopsychology and Psychology majors), because he doesn't think abstractly, so he has a good grasp on what's been proven and what is still uncertain within the scientific community.

    Well, I would have liked to see them all in bullet format and/or all in prose format.

    I think I have to agree with you on a "Just the facts ma'am" approach. I just wish all type description methods were treated equally.

    My Ni tends not to have an attention span long enough to constantly read too many things in the outer world. I often have trouble comprehending text.
