ISTJ, though my "I" isn't nearly as strong as it used to be.

Last time I was an ESTP and before that an ENTJ. So what does that mean, I'm evolving or can't understand the questions??

I was an INTJ the last time I took the MB test in 1999.

And I am still one today.

Thanks for sharing the test!

INTJ Too

Took this test 22 years ago. I remember it so well because I was the exact opposite of my boss. (it was frustrating working for this boss--i avoided her whenever possible, heard recently she is on her second job after retirement.
I have moved slightly toward the extrovert side and mellowed on the judging a bit, but still an INTJ. Well positioned for RE in December 2013.

Whatever type it is that doesn't care for putting labels on people, or having them applied to oneself - that's my type.

I remember MBTI being a big thing at work in the late 80's...lots of ultra-serious training going on; people had signs at their desks with their "4 letters," etc., and "Introvert" and "Extrovert" became code for all sorts of annoying workplace behavior. Then everybody got tired of it, and MBTI was never heard of again (except ironically).

You have distinctive preference of Introversion over Extraversion (67%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (19%)

I am INTJ when unhappy--but now I'm focusing on only 9 more months, so am INFJ.

C'mon, there must be some more extraverts. I wonder how haha comes in on this.
Finally, an extravert! I think it would be great for you to host the ER forum gathering. All us introverts will hang out in the corner of the room and not cause any problems

Well, every time I have done this it at work or in school, it seems to change slightly. It's been a long time now, so I am getting more extraverted and feeling as I get older. I am always N and J, but the E and F used to be I and T when I was younger. (Used to be INTJ)

I think when you are "slight preference" it means you can't be categorized so easily....

ENFJ
Extravert(11%) iNtuitive(25%) iNtuitive Feeling(38%) Judging(33%)
  • You have slight preference of Extraversion over Introversion (11%)
  • You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (25%)
  • You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (33%)

Doesn't look much different from last time:

INTJ
Introvert(89%) iNtuitive(62%) iNtuitive Thinking(100%) Judging(100%)
  • You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
  • You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (62%)
  • You have strong preference of Thinking over Feeling (100%)
  • You have strong preference of Judging over Perceiving (100%
I agree with the conclusion that only the I/E evaluation has any validity: Myers-Briggs Widely Used But Still Controversial And the descriptions of the various character tests are a load of hogwash.

Filed in the same file as horoscopes and end-of-the-world prophecies.

Judging by the results posted so far, the middle of the room might be the quietest place to get away from everyone else....

Correction. Just talked DH into doing this and guess what? He's also an INTJ. BTW, he's an ER too.

At the gathering all us INTJs will relish in confirming each other's obviously great life/career/FIRE decisions, then grow bored because there's no one else to convince, and wander off to do our own things.
