    Default learn my type?

    hi all, i'd like to learn what type i am. but i'm not sure where to start. a lot of people say the tests are bad (google search) and that it's better to work with others to get a real answer.

    is there somewhere i should start? maybe something you want to know?

    i don't really know where to begin. thanks in advance for all your help!

    Try the big 106 question Jung test on Similar minds for a start. Base your answers on how you would most likely react / feel / think on daily life, or/and on how you have been up until now, not on how you'd like to see yourself do.

    I'd also recommend the test at 16personalities.com. Cognitive functions tests online are always terrible -- just stick to four-dichotomy MBTI tests and "Big Five" tests.

    Tests are not the end game in typology, but the first few you take (before you learn anything about typology), tend to be quite reliable.

    okay, i took the 106 question test on similarminds. i kind of wish I could not answer some. some are just so wtf and not relevant to me.

    i got ESTP and uh, an eight for an enneagram test? not sure what that is.

    Haha, but you got ExTx on both. That's a start. Now you can either take a few more tests and try to see a pattern that way, or read a few descriptions of the four ET types and see which you relate to most.

    Try taking a couple of Big Five tests too. They measure pure behavioural traits rather than thinking styles, etc., and usually they correlate with MBTI. In fact I'd suggest you do this next.

    Te and Se are of similar qualities, you are not so far off on your dominant function with the results. The aesthetic of MBTI's presentation can be misleading, I would look into the functions themselves as a foundation for understanding - Se, Si, Ne, Ni, Te, Te, Fe, Fi.

    The WTF questions should be answered as negatively as possible.

    The enneagram 8 is the most aggressive type on the enneagram.

    Hey -- did you end up deciding on your type? If so, what convinced you?

    I did, thank you for asking. I forgot about this thread.

    I'm an ESTJ. It's pretty clear I utilize Si/Ne over Se/Ni.

    I've considered I might be an ENFP, though. I use a lot of Si/Ne.

    Are you the reigning ESTJ of the TC forums?
