Someone already did. It's an old thread, but the poll still appears to be open. I took the message at the bottom to heart and didn't vote, but what about it Mods? ISTM it makes more sense to have just one poll, even if it is old, than to have duplicate polls on the same question.

I could never remember my MB results and then some conversation like this would pop up and I would go online and take a test. So a while back I took three of them and saved the results: I am ESTP, ENTJ, and/or ENTP depending on the test or my mood at the time. I think I trust the Luscher Color Test more.

Not sure if I took the color test you are referring.... but it was not even close..

The MB snippets are almost spot on for me...

Golly, I am not much of anything according to this online test
Personality test based on Jung - Myers-Briggs typology
A moderately expressed I, but only slightly expressed N, F, and J.
Even my personality is wishy-washy!

Edit:
Sheesh. I looked up the explanation for INFJ. What a load of cr@p. While I can see the interest in gathering analyzing statistics of a personality test, attaching this sort of narrative is like astrology.

ISTJ here, although very borderline on the I, S and T! I know in the past when I have done it I have been ENTJ.

When I first took this close to 20 years ago, I was *extremely* "I" -- I think I had something like 22 points on the "I" side and 3 points on the "E" side. I'm still an I, but it's now a lot closer (something like 14/10 instead of 22/3).

Same thing happened to me over 20 years. I'm sure it was all those years of managing people.

And then my P went from high to extreme. Not sure if I can explain that one.

I don't remember what mine was but I know it definitely was not the INTJ that you all talk about. I am not at all scientific or mechanically oriented...am much more intuitive or seat-of-my pants modus operendi. It is a wonder I muddle by in this life but somehow I do.

INTJ prior to retirement---seem to be becoming more of an E now that I am no longer physically and mentally drained from working. Not sure if the E should be considered progress or not---the I was easier in some respects.
