    Default Which is it gonna be?

    Hey, so I have taken the MBTI 3 times recently and one test says that I am an ISTP but doesn't really describe me. Took a dif test that says I am an ENTJ. Wow! What a difference.

    I just don't know how that is possible.

    Are we talking "official" tests, or online dealies? Because if it's the latter, they're all very different and can yield all kinds of different results, depending on how they ask the quesitons.

    I've taken. 3 internet tests over a period of 3 years and one official test with a counselor 2 weeks ago.

    Each time I came up INFJ. I'm convinced of my type, but I believe P-ness is starting to assert itself a little more than it used to.

    Really I guess I'm an INFj now.

    Yes, P-ness does have a tendency to assert itself sometimes.

    I would expect a stereotypical ENTJ to have figured out exactly how it was possible and which test was wrong and why, and then tell us about it in at least a semi-assertive way.

    See if this one gives you any additional insight:
