Ditto that, though i replace all rolls to suit my left handed honey - so they roll off the top.

If I have too.
I guess".

I was revealed to be an ISFJ on the four question test. Took the Meyer Briggs test years ago in secondary school and don't recall what I was as that is ancient history. Am decidedly right handed also.

INTJ Information » INTJ Descriptions

INTJs are very often found in positions that require prolonged periods of solitary concentration and tough-minded analysis... INTJs are intensely individualistic and resist being bound to routine.


I don't think that's the profile of Hefner, do you? I don't even have a PJ, leave alone a silk one. I like to sleep in my Bermuda shorts, even in the winter. I sleep bare chested in the summer, and with a T-shirt in the winter.

PS. I am right-handed. What does that have to do with personality?

Was ISTJ while w*rking (wonder if that has changed?)
Very right handed
TP from the top
Age 13 is about when I started retreating into myself and into books (mainly science fiction and literary classics)

The right versus left handed is just another odd trait. There are more left-handed folks here than in the normal population, IIRC. Plus I like being left-handed 'cause it makes me more like unclemick...heh heh heh

Has anyone done their Enneagram?

Enneagram Institute: Enneagram Testing & Training

Based on the names of the "9 Types," I was sure I'd turn out to be a 4 or an 8. Much to my surprise, I am a 6 with strong 1 and 9 traits. Surprisingly, I see myself in those descriptions.

Of course, I'm also a Sagittarius. Surprisingly accurate there, too
Quiz Result: What does your Zodiac sign mean?(really detailed) | Get More Quizzes at Quizilla

"If your sun sign is Sagittarius, you are a person with great integrity, going your own way, rarely following others - nor do you want others to follow you. You do your own thing. Freedom is a key word for Sagittarius. You need to be independent, even though that might lead to limited resources and other difficulties. To you, freedom is a wealth surpassing that of money. Like the archer, you aim far. Your goals are distant, some would say unobtainable, but thereby they are also interesting, not to say spectacular - certainly to you. Only things that seem to be out of reach are worth reaching for.

"If the sun is in the middle of Sagittarius, you guard your integrity and independence against any intrusion, without making much noise about it. You are hard to catch, although you don't seem to be running. "

I am an INFJ, "empathic". Yep, pretty much me in a nutshell!

SG, that is my M-B "type," as well. Although I can just as easily turn out ENFP. It all starts to resemble horoscopes after a while [Amethyst raises a skeptical eyebrow, winks and grins]

Anybody stopped to consider that the folks most likely to hang around the Internet, tend to be people who like computers and computing? That, in itself, could be behind the apparent preponderance of engineers and INTJs on this forum.

INTP, strongly right handed. Like Donheff, I can't ever remember what I am on these tests. (But of course I do love my pajamas so maybe I have a little PJ there )

There are more Ps here than I thought. I scored at the very top of the spectrum for J (which is judging) with not even a whisker of P to my name.

This is why I am spending a lot of time snorting in derision of the so-called "Critical Thinking" class I am taking right now for my degree program. As the boss says "what, you aren't already critical enough?"

Oh, and Capricorn, baby, all the way! I am totally a goat. My description reads something like: Capricorns like giving advice, solving problems, and managing people. Or as I like to call it--Freelance nagger.

Amethyst, my Enneagram is 9 with a 1 wing. Thought I'd be a 5. That stuff is kind of interesting, though I'm not into the part that gets mystical.

That's pretty funny. I'm a Capricorn, too.

Nearly ambidextrous, too lazy to find out what other types apply. Can do most things left or right except writing, it is atrocious with both hands, hence I write with block letters.
Always practice all Jujutsu moves both left and righthanded.

DW likes TP to roll off the top. So that is how it is.

I am on the cusp of Aquarius and Capricorn so I am a free spirited nagger !

ISTJ as well. From reading the online descriptions at least, they describes me to a T.

What she said, but substitute "adventure stories" for "literary classics".

Except I'm sometimes borderline ESTJ, depending on my mood at the time. I suppose that accounts for my enjoyment of fast machines like acrobatic airplanes and motorcycles.

DW is also ISTJ. Perhaps that's why disagreements are so rare, and never serious.
