Myers-Briggs Personality Test

I meant to post this a while back with the left brain/right brain stuff. This is the famous Myers-Briggs test that gives you your four letter personality code.

Take it here. Ignore their descriptions and go here for a much more in-depth description. Select your type and start reading. At the bottom there are career and relationship descriptions as well.

When you take the test go with your first impulse when you read the question. If you analyze it you may change the result. Also, the degree to which you are a particular type can change depending on your mood, etc but you will almost always be the same type or close to it. For example, I just retook the test and ended up as an ESFP, when I took it two weeks ago I was ENFP. However, both times degree I was a N or an S was very low (16% N the first time and 1% S this time) so I straddle that particular type. The other three are pretty strong and don't change much, although I was introverted when I was younger.

Anyway, here is my type:

Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
33 12 50 67

Last week:
Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
56 1 100 56

NOTE: ENFP is my usual type. I don't know what was going on when I came up ESFP, particulary that 100% Feeling thing. The ENFP numbers are about what I usually come up as.

What is yours and does the description match how you perceive yourself?


Erica said...

Yep. I match. Every time I've taken this test, I come out ESTJ.

Shana said...

Same with me, I'm still:

Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
67 25 62 11

Kirsten said...

I am a: ESFJ
Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging
Strength of the preferences %
22 25 38 33

And I think the site w/the more in depth description is pretty accurate!

Here's mine:
Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging

I think I may retake it:)

Ryan said...

What is it with all you judging people?

Anyway, Becky! Get your husband to take it. :)

And I fixed my type. That ESFP was an outlier. The numbers and type I have up there now is what I normally hit.
