Thanks for pointing out that thread and its associated poll. I just voted. INTJ's rule on this board.

Here's another thread on personality type: Retirement personality type


PS. I wonder if INTJ would be the shy type that tends not to post photos of self.

I took two tests. My type was INTJ on one (scoring 78, 25, 50, 56) and ISTJ on the other.

That makes sense. We are a very analytical bunch and we build portfolios.

... although if our individual portfolios are like houses, their styles may look differently from each other like these.

I see the charms in each too. One is down-to-earth, low key, and in a sea of calm,. The other, provocative, modern, and exciting.

Oh, how to decide, how to choose.

What?! Lefties and Capricorns in addition to ISTJ (even if it is just sometime) on this forum? Type A??

I know I am an anomoaly here, but I am an ENFP. Then again, I'm not very die-hard on this website because I'm too busy being social.

INTJ here also. INTJs seem overrepresented here, seeing they're about 1% of the population.

Was expecting to see more ISTJs (Ebenzer Scrooge)

I get that ISTJ sometimes instead of INTJ. I'd make a pretty good Scrooge!

NW-bound, do you know where the turf-roofed houses in the top photo are? Are they new or old?

ISTJ - and it is not even close in any category.

I remember one exercise we did where they split the "N"s and the "S"s into groups. Both groups were given a plastic bag full of crap, including an empty 2 liter bottle, pipe cleaners, balloons, etc and told to make a toy.

We (the "S"s) sat there staring at the pile of crap for a while and then finally threw it all back in the bag. Our toy was a "do-it-yourself" kit. Then the "N"s came out with this really cool doll thing they had built using the bottle as a base.

I really want to be an INTJ.......

I can't believe I did all that work to set up that poll. I think that I was into polls for a while back then.

No, it is simply among pictures of unusual self-built houses on this web site that I stumbled across.

That pic was on Bing a while ago. Norway, perhaps. And I think they are old. Caveate-My memory could be wrong.

Egad, that was a bunch of work. But since it was back in 2005, I think that newer posters should vote on that one and bring it back to the front of the line! Kyoung--go for it!
