I retook the test, to test for two things: consistency within the test, and to test my own subjective bias as I believe myself to *actually* prefer Sensation over Intuition.
Here are the results this time:
Personality Results â€“ Typology Central Jung Personality Test
There are multiple consistencies - the first is that I am an 'introvert' according to your test, the above suggests ISTJ and last time, it was INTJ.
The next is Te 'dominance' both times, with Ti actually falling into precisely the same place as well.
Fe falls into last place both times - this doesn't actually make sense from a Jungian perspective whereby Fi should be there - or, alternatively, Ti should be 'first' - although, it does make sense from a 'realistic' perspective as yes, Fe isn't exactly a 'strong point' for me.
Si and Ni are switched around, but the idea of Te-Pi is consistent both times.
Slight discrepancy whereby Ne is a little higher, and Fi and Se are the same this time, whereas last time it went Fi-Se-Ne.
Still, overall, my results are, IMO, consistent, same general introverted disposition, same notion that I am an 'introverted' Te type, same least-preferred function-attitude in Fe, Ti is in the same position, and my Thinking is supported by an introverted perceiving function as opposed to an extraverted one.
IMO, it's consistent, appears to remain relatively consistent despite subjective bias on my behalf (which may influence the order of S/N this time) though I still have the same issues listed last time - as well as one more I didn't mention, and that is separating I from E - the first half of the quiz is dedicated to this entirely - and it's not true to Jung as it doesn't follow his theories on the general attitude of consciousness (functions can't be separated from attitude, and so it doesn't make sense to test for attitude, isolated from functions).
That said, I actually like the test, and don't believe this aspect of Jungs theories should be adhered to strictly, due to it forcing IIEE/EEII stacks, which not everyone actually seems to follow - so I do like that this test is "open" to not forcing people into specific "stacks", if that makes sense.
Higher preference expressed for sensing (overall) vs. intuition. Tally up Si+Se vs. Ni+Ne
It uses a combination of dichotomies and functions to come up with type. What I found is the previous version that relied more heavily on functions and their order ended up being less accurate.That makes a certain amount of sense, though I wonder why the results aren't based on which scores were positive? (For me, Fi, Ne, and Si...) as the negative scores were the functions least like what I normally use. I guess it's trying to balance functions with dichotomy?
