    Default Is there a name for people...

    Is there a name for people who get lots of different results? Such as getting INTJ years ago, something else earlier this year, INFP last week, ESTP today?

    In other words, for very variable people? Sometimes I want more people in my life, sometimes fewer; sometimes I think I want to help change the world, sometimes I think people are messing iti up so much I'd better just enjoy it while there's still some fresh air in some places... you get the idea.

    Deranged isn't the word I'm looking for.

    That's called a normal person.

    Also, welcome to the forums

    I was like that, I'll call it... an 'unsure tester'? Maybe? I've gotten weird results before, like ESFJ, which I am not. I became sure on my type after reading material instead of taking quizzes.

    oh and a better term, would be a normal person, like person above me said :P

    Don't place faith in tests, they tend for the most part to be wholly inaccuarate; they can give one an idea of what their type is but true discovery of type requires analysis and introspection.

    I was going to answer 'Human'. But the other posters summed it up pretty well. Typology is just another tool to help one understand some areas of self that may not be well quantified. It is not set in stone and you can make of it (and yourself) whatever you like.

    Default Wow!

    Is there a forum for "normal"?

    Kidding aside, it's great to hear that. I appreciate several nice people jumping in so quickly. Thanks.

    You all seem to be having so much fun being a type. I want one too!

    It is fun seeing other people with your type and stuff, but the first thing I thought when seeing that was "I want to be labeled." x)
