    I agree that personality is best gauged indirectly, but having test results to show us helps with interpretation. Enneagram is also important, especially as your Enneagram is very unusual for an INTJ or a Thinking type generally. The great majority are core 5 or 6w5 (primary head triad). I dislike yeghor's Enneagram test because of the limited information about your type it gives you.

    Try this one Comprehensive Enneagram Quiz
    For MBTI, there is an adaptive questionnaire which I rate (each question changes depending on your previous answer): John's Personality Test. Another plus is that you can skip a question if you think you are 50/50 between the two possible answers.
    I've already answered these questions earlier in the thread. When did I claim to have high spatial intelligence?

    I was going to say that my impression was that you seem to be an INTJ. Now I'm not sure.

    That's interesting. You're the first person to say that. Do you mind if I ask what gave you that impression?

    It's necessary for visual art, especially sculpture. Not that I'm saying that means you have to have Si and Te (or Ne), but it points me more in that direction.

    Complete opposite to my way of composing.

    I plan out a complete structure for each section of the music before i start actually writing the notes down. What key it will be in, the orchestration, how long the phrases will be. I do a lot of brainstorming looking at the themes in the text I am trying to set and how they could be accurately represented musically.

    The problem is not getting overwhelmed trying to fulfill these detailed plans and structures, to help I always work in half hour blocks and then take a break.

    Nothing like Mozart, who just wrote shit down (though he started editing later in life). He was an ESTP by the way.

    I love sculpture. I can see why you would say that. I don't think that visual artists=high sensing though.

    For me it's more of a painting by intuition type thing. It's great to just let my mind go and paint. The only planning I really do is if an idea pops into my head. Other than that, I just start. It's also a heavy Se thing for me, I love the texture of the paint (I paint with my fingers a lot), and I love moving the paint around.

    I was reading an article somewhere and an artist said that paint has a very sensual quality, I agree.

    Ni-Te does not lend to spatial thinking. You know you're a Ni dom when your best ideas come shaving or lying in bed, just because that is when we are most relaxed (I sing in the shower lol).

    One of the things that makes it hard for me to compose, to the point where sometimes I think it's just not something I can do, is that it is impossible for me to just write something down that I "hear" in my head. I can synthesize very complicated and "complete" music internally at will, but have real trouble translating it. This is a classic problem Ni doms have. So imagine how hard it would be trying to paint.

    I used to have a friend (we don't talk anymore) who is an INxP and she is a fantastic sketch artist. Doesn't change the fact that she's a b*tch though.

    I hope you are not offended that I don't see much INTJ-ness, it's just the way you approach art seems very P-ish at least. It kind of reminds me of one of my lecturers, who just writes down shit and ges with how the ideas turn. He is ENFP.

    Oh, no I'm not offended at all, I asked for other perspectives. I do think you're view of INTJ's when it comes to art (especially visual art) is very limited though. Or you have a very limited idea of how visual artists work. From what I understand spatial thinking can also be used in science, mathematics, technology, etc. (I could be wrong- I had to look it up), but by that notion Ni-Te wouldn't lend itself to fields that are stereotypically INTJ.

    Spatial thinking might be important when it comes to Realism, or other types of work where it's important to be able to determine the relationship between different objects, but with abstract art and other forms of art it's not necessary.

    That sounds like hard work. Before I start, I need an impulse, an inspiration. I always got a rough idea of what I want to do - What mood it will be in, if it's going to be slow or fast, but that's everything. I just go and see where it takes me.
    Btw, why would Mozart be Ti?
