    Smile Type my brothers and win a FREE* cupcake

    Step right up! Try your luck in the typing challenge. Reach a logical conclusion and you have a chance to win a free* cupcake!


    Younger brother #1 (YB1)- age 15


    • Was an extremely laid-back baby who rarely made a fuss. He was the easiest for my mother to take care of. However, this changed as he slowly turned into a very confrontational person. Keep in mind that he is a teenager, but my older brother was never like this.
    • He always has to be right and is very reluctant to admit when he is wrong (we have this in common). This means that he (we) tends to fight (not physically) often over seemingly unimportant things.
    • Sometimes it seems as if he enjoys starting verbal fights.
    • He never had as many friends as our older brother, the social butterfly, but he has gradually opened up over the years and has many more friends than me and YB2.
    • He can dominate conversations and be loud and crazy, but sometimes he is quiet and just wants to do his own thing.
    • Often when speaking with him, he'll want and instant answer and will occasionally even get irritated when people don't answer write away. I'll be thinking of a response and he'll think I'm ignoring him or that I didn't hear him.
    • He can be a bit manipulative, especially when it comes to YB2. He'll be very mean to YB2, but he'll somehow convince YB2 to do things for him or keep playing with him. This drives me crazy sometimes.
    • He is often rude and easily insults others/hurts their feelings. This seems almost unintentional at times.
    • He has never been much of a perfectionist and often turns in sloppy work.


    Younger brother #2 (YB2) - age 11

    • He is not overly concerned with who is right and who is wrong, he just wants everyone to not fight. (This gets on my nerves at times because I am more like YB1.)
    • Relating to the first point, he very sensitive and will cry easily, even if he is not the one being yelled at. At the same time, he will keep coming back to YB1 for attention, even if he has been hurt by him. I don't really understand why he does this.
    • He doesn't appear to have many friends.
    • He often appears to have less energy than YB1, as he is quieter and more calm most of the time.
    • He is the creative one of the family and loves when he gets to create things. This means that he loves drawing, playing Minecraft on creative mode, creating roller coasters in RollerCoaster Tycoon, etc. He never really enjoyed art classes because he was always told what to create (can't say that I blame him).
    • He loves maps, globes, etc. Basically he loves anything related to geography. I don't think this will help with his type, though. Just thought I'd mention it because I have less to say about YB2.
    • He struggles with perfectionism and gets very upset when things don't go as they're supposed to. (I think this may be more of an OCD thing, as it doesn't fit in with the type I have in mind for him and my older brother is like this.)
    • All of the family seems to do this, but we often procrastinate and do things at the last minute. I don't think this is really type related, but I just wanted to show this in contrast with his perfectionism.


    I'll gladly give out more information if necessary.

    Aww no takers?

    Okay then, I'll give one letter for each.

    YB1 is a definite T.
    YB2 is a definite F.

    Ok, scratch that. YB1 is totally unknown.

    I remember getting him to take the small, Humanmetrics test a few years ago and he got INFJ.

    I assumed that this was a strange anomaly, so I recently got him to take the long OKCupid test. He scored ISFJ with F/T being close to 50/50.

    He has absolutely no understanding of MBTI. So now I am VERY confused and I'd say this wasn't a coincidence....


    WTF????

    Hm...so I just had YB1 and YB2 have a look at this chart.

    YB1 picked results that correlate to ESFJ.
    YB2 picked results that correlate to ISFP or ISFJ.

    This is so strange because YB1 is getting consistent Fe types an I fail to see Fe anywhere in him.

    I would have guessed EXTX for #1 and INFP for #2. Still need more info to make good guesses for either.

    What kind of info would you like?

    Also, why do you suppose YB1 keeps scoring IFJ whenever I give him tests even though he knows nothing of MBTI and he took these tests in different years?

    How about giving them descriptions of different types and asking him what he agrees or doesn't agree with.

    I'm not sure why he keeps scoring IFJ when the description you gave of him sounds nothing like it. It could be due to one or more of the following:
    -He is not very self-aware when taking the test.
    -He may be self-aware of his preferences but circumstances make him behave counter to his type preferences.
    -You may not have the best understanding or interpretation of your brother's behavior.

    I'm afraid the younger of the two wouldn't quite know how to judge which of the descriptions he felt the closest to. He is only eleven after all. The older likes to dismiss what I'm doing as silly. (I can't say I disagree with him. )

    I'm not sure why he keeps scoring IFJ when the description you gave of him sounds nothing like it. It could be due to one or more of the following:

    I think it's more of the part I bolded. Perhaps he simply idolizes the feeler attitude more, as I tend to idolize the thinker attitude more (there is a decent possibility that I am a feeler who just wants to be a thinker).

    I don't think there's anything making him behave counter to his type preferences. He simply slowly morphed into this person and it seems like it was quite a natural (albeit sometimes very annoying and irritating) progression.

    A note about YB1: he'll often speak his opinion and/or correct YB2 even if it might hurt his feelings (and it often does). He doesn't seem to always be doing this on purpose, but it seems very anti-Fe to me.

    I forgot to ask, though...I know you said you didn't have a lot to go off of, but where do you see N in the younger one? Is it just a random guess or do you have reasoning behind it?

    Also, is there a type/function that tends to be more argumentative than others or a type/function that is more prone to correcting others, even on insignificant details? Two thirds of my family have this very prominent trait.

    Yb#2 is definetly an INFP. Most points in the description remind me of myself. Let him do an Enneagram test, i think he'll score type 4.
    Tell him that I like geography too. I don't know why but it's kinda interesting to me.

    Thanks for responding. Just wondering...where are you getting the N from? Also, do you have any particular Enneagram test in mind?
