Your Cognitive Development Profile
The forty-eight questions you rated earlier tap into the eight cognitive processes. Some questions tapped into basic or developed use of a process used by itself, while other questions tapped into use of multiple processes at once. The profile below is based on your responses. The number of squares indicate strength of response. The equivalent numeric is shown in parentheses along with likely level of development.


Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
extraverted Sensing (Se) **(31.3)
good use
introverted Sensing (Si) ** (15.4)
unused
extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ** (49.9)
excellent use
introverted Intuiting (Ni) ** (29.7)
average use
extraverted Thinking (Te) ** (10.1)
unused
introverted Thinking (Ti) ** (13.4)
unused
extraverted Feeling (Fe) ** (58)
excellent use
introverted Feeling (Fi) **(31.8)
good 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: ENFJ

Lead (Dominant) Process
Extraverted Feeling (Fe): Building trust through giving relationships. Empathically responding to others' needs and take on their needs and values as your own. Checking for respect and trust. Giving and receiving support to grow closer to people.

Support (Auxilliary) Process
Introverted Intuiting (Ni): Transforming with a meta-perspective. Withdrawing from the world and focusing your mind to receive an insight or realization. Checking if synergy results. Trying out a realization to transform things.

If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: INFJ, or ENFP

If these results are different from what you know of yourself, you might consider why your developmental pattern does not align with your expectation. You might also consider exploring this result as a possible better fit.


But we all know that I am no J lol ;)

I am however a P ;)

Oh, you Feeling-goddess! :) (Not bad for someone with a "limited vocabulary score" and thus assumed to be articulate as a half-wasted gopher...)

Hehe, I make pretty good use of both Fi and Fe but Fe exhausts me so I have a habit of pretending to be socially handicapped. That means that most improper remarks from my side is looked upon forbearingly.

You, on the other hand, have from the very beginning choosed to bring your Fe with you to the boards which means that unlike me, you are doomed to behave considerate, diplomatic and ever so nicely forever and ever (even when you don't FEEL like it) :D .

D*mmit.... You're right, that wasn't very smart of me, was it? :dry:

Maybe I can practice being more malfeasant and curmudgeonly.

Hustler was most likely choosed as a mod for this
attachment.php
skill, you were most probably choosed for your maturity and diplomatic nature.

When Hustler rage, he mainly just manage piss off people, you would manage to hurt their feelings as well - it just wouldn't work.

You'r nice and you'r doomed :devil: !

The thing I don't like about the test is that the questions are worded too technically. In order to answer them properly you have to be somewhat versed in MBTI, and that means that anyone who understands what the questions are asking has the potential to "game" the test. And anyone who is ignorant of MBTI is probably answering the questions incorrectly.

I do appreciate that it is testing for the functions instead of just testing for "letters" (E or I, P or J, etc...), but it should be written in a more common vernacular. Sure you might find this type of question insipid:

A) I prefer to make plans far in advance.
B) I prefer to keep my options open until the last minute.

But the nice thing about a question like this is that anyone can answer it. You want a test that can be taken by someone who knows jack about MBTI, because that is when you are most likely to get genuine answers, and you don't have to worry about if you are really "playing" the test.

I make so many contingency plans that I would answer B dispite being a J.

This always confuses me because Ni comes out higher than Si and shouldn't I be higher in Te than Ti as an INFP?

It makes me lose faith with the whole system.

extraverted Intuiting (Ne) (50.8)
excellent use

introverted Feeling (Fi) (48.4)
excellent use

introverted Intuiting (Ni) (41.1)

introverted Thinking (Ti) (31.2)

extraverted Thinking (Te) (19)

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

"By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ISTJ"

ISTJ...Well, know I score low on Intuition, so it can easily go either way. But I feel more like an NT than an ST.

I'm still figuring out all this secondary type character stuff. It's complicated, but in a good way.

"Corresponding best-fit temperaments based on your profile: Theorist; secondly Stabilizer; then Improviser; and lastly, Catalyst."
NT is theorizer, SJ (which the test told me I am) is Stabilizer, this doesn't add up.

Well, I suppose the questions you need to ask yourself:

1. What questions were you answering that gave you such a high Si score? Why did those answers appeal to you? (Perhaps you answered them coming from an angle/understanding that the test-creator did not intend.)

2. Why did you settle on the INTJ reading? What about you seems very Ni? Why is Ni much more prominent in your life than Si?

I think test readings like this are interesting but also merely a springboard to more exploration and might help you see how you specifically function, as opposed to a stereotypical INTJ type (or whatever).

I'm so not an INFP
I'm so an ENFJ but here are my results.

The Ni/Ne is about right I've always been pretty balanced with that.
