    Again, the test cannot be taken too much at face value, it have to interpreted. If you interpret it properly, I think it's probably the best MBTI test online, but it should be combined with a conventional one though. But it's kind of hard to comment when you have never posted your scores. I cannot know if your INTP result was clear or not, without seeing the raw scores. If your Ti tested as stronger than your Te, and your Ne stronger than your Ni, I think you should reconsider your type though. You are possibly just an organised P.

    Yeah, tests don't really mean anything... I tend to use them as just a means to a kinda 'ballpark figure', which I then hone and refine by gaining my own understanding of the system and using that to self-define.

    Sometimes I get ENTJ, sometimes I get INTP. But my knowledge of the functions and dichotomies tells me that my E is around 70% and despite having trained myself to do a fairly decent J impersonation when circumstances require it in RL, I know it's a learned skill and not a natural tendency; my natural tendency has to be around 80% P.

    The tests don't say much about me either in the S/N or T/F parts - my religion has caused me to hugely increase my F, and years of thinkning "close enough!" and then having things fall down due to inattention to facts/details has forced me to be more careful with planning and checking facts.

    But again, these are learned skills and not natural traits. The tests can't distinguish between the two. If it asks "do you try to stick to facts?" and I answer "yes", it just gives me an extra point on the S scale. It doesn't provide room for me to explain how hard I have to try to stick to facts, and how I only try to in order to counterbalance my own natural tendency to fly off into speculations and theories and alternative possibilities. It doesn't give me room when I answer "I prefer to be compassionate and merciful rather than fair and objective", to explain how, again, this is something I've learned in order to counterbalance my natural tendency to be rather harsh and dismissive of the subjective element.

    So yeah, I'd say to learn about the individual functions and decide for yourself which ones are natural, and which ones are 'artificially' augmented. If I were counting all my tendencies, as they're seen on the outside, without taking any account of the internal processes that lead to the behaviours, I might type myself as ENxx, with a much lower E score as my religion has also taught me to spend long periods in solitary reflection. But because I know myself, and I know what comes naturally and what doesn't, I can confidently say ENTP, even if I might not always appear that way to others.

    Haven't I?
    I thought there was a thread that encouraged people to take the test and post the scores?
    Did you look for it already?
    I can't find it.
    I remember manipulating the copy and paste to make it neater before I posted.

    Hope nobody gets mad at me for de-railing the thread.

    It happened again for the 4th time. I must not understand the questions.

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)

    Summary Analysis of Profile
    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: INTP

    Lead (Dominant) Process
    Introverted Thinking (Ti): Gaining leverage (influence) using a framework. Detaching to study a situation from different angles and fit it to a theory, framework or principle. Checking for accuracy. Using leverage to solve the problem.

    Support (Auxilliary) Process
    Extraverted Intuiting (Ne): Exploring the emerging patterns. Wondering about patterns of interaction across various situations. Checking what hypotheses and meanings fit best. Trusting what emerges as you shift a situation’s dynamics.

    If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: ENTP, or INTJ

    Ah, I tried to find your scores, but was unable to, that might explain why.

    Edit: I was looking some more, and still couldn't find. All I could find was posts where you said what you tested on it, but not the raw scores.

    I re-took the test and edited my previous post.
    Thanks.

    I think it comes down to that I don't really understand what they're asking me.

    INTJMom, your cognitive functions scores is admittedly a bit weird, but they certainly don't disprove you are INTJ. They seem to quite clearly indicate you are either INTP or INTJ, although judging by the scores you seem to fit the INTP profile a little better, but nothing conclusive. It's funny to see that all your introverted functions tests higher than your extroverted functions. You must be extremely introverted. You say you are 75 % J, but if you are, it is a mystery to me your Te doesn't score higher.

    It's so 6ish. It doesn't apply to me at all. And there's also this shit about how the 6 is like the juggling, bumbling professor. I scoff at that, like a toff scoffs at the working class as he gallops along on his horse. Okay, I can be pretty scattered and "oh!" "ooh!" "yeah, btw!" *cuts off mid sentence* in my thinking, but I'm not one of these characters. I'm pretty damn grounded. I just have a lot of ideas that often come to me at once, and I think far quicker than I speak, so it sounds like shit, when it all makes perfect sense in my head.

    ENTJ 8w7... But you sound at 5...

    The whole impression I got was that of an ENTJ that is in a phase of "WTF, everything is meaningless. Why bother controlling things. I don't care. I can't find what really suits me. What's the point in doing too much anyway... Fuck everything else." Or maybe that's the definition of an ENTP
