Mine were the same way. "I" off the scale. Two of the others much newer the center except the "T". Sixty-two percent thinking. Nearer to a robot than a human on the Thinking/Feeling spectrum.

Ditto, except only N was closer to center.
So during the Terminator movies, do you pull for the terminators or the humans?

Ha! Ne'er have I seen a Terminator movie. I consider them "stupid pop culture". If anyone is a fan and offended by that assessment........., oh well. ;-)

Wow, if I skipped out on everything I've done that would qualify as "stupid pop culture" I'd have missed out on some fun times.

Well, I had to add a 10 to my INTJ screen name to get a unique one so that should tell you something.

Exactly how it is for me some days at work when I have to go to an event or give a speech. I remind myself that I'm playing the role of and extroverted version of myself, and then I can go home and not talk to anyone for the night and just read.

Looks like I'm an ENTJ

"ENTJs are natural-born leaders. People with this personality type embody the gifts of charisma and confidence, and project authority in a way that draws crowds together behind a common goal. But unlike their Feeling (F) counterpart, ENTJs are characterized by an often ruthless level of rationality, using their drive, determination and sharp minds to achieve whatever end they've set for themselves. Perhaps it is best that they make up only three percent of the population, lest they overwhelm the more timid and sensitive personality types that make up much of the rest of the world - but we have ENTJs to thank for many of the businesses and institutions we take for granted every day."

Probably why I enjoyed the Navy and flying jets.

I'm an ESTJ. I also enjoyed flying and leading others as a naval officer. Not ER'd yet, but DW and I are working towards that goal.

I guess I'm just an outlier.
Whenever I take this, I turn out either INFP or INTP.
Both are low probability results in this poll (6-7%).

Please don't ostracize me!

Yep, do that all the time myself.

I am INTJ and actually like socializing in small groups of "non-small talkers" and even attending occasional parties, but it takes its toll and I need several days to recover.
