A couple days ago I took a test designed to measure MB type, and for the first time I scored INFJ where in the past I've been an INTJ consistently. Not a huge shock because my T has always been more marginal than the IN_J scores. I must be getting older--the nerdy cable channels are always running commercials for guys over 50 experiencing "Low T". Mine fell all the way to F. I didn't realize they were talking about MB types.

I almost always get INFJ results. However most of the behaviours I exhibit are INTJ behaviours. While F matches my ideals I don't really live up to them or practice them. Which one prevails? Maybe I am misaligned and not living right,

I almost always test INFJ too, although I'll get INFP occasionally.

I've seen this several times and shudder every single time. That was my first "real" job in 2003 (22 y.o.) at a Fortune 15. I left in 2006 and have been at not-for-profits (although some of them are not much better) or smaller privately-owned companies with a flatter power structure ever since.

I was testing INTJ very consistently when I first discovered these forums and now I'm solidly ISTP (S&P are low-ish though). Wonder what changed.

ENTJ-A
77% 66% 85% 71% 63%
I guess that's a pretty strong profile percentage-wise.

I've been thinking though, that if one was a turbulent personality, the A/T percentage would tend fluctuate as you re-take the test whereas a 'true' strong A would be quite set. In other words, A shows up as A, T shows up as both A and T depending on your current mood.

INTJ, DW is INTP

Percentages-
Introvert(44%) iNtuitive(34%) Thinking(12%) Judging(3%)
You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (44%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (34%)
You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)
You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (3%)

I had never heard of these tests until I started reading here, the write-up for INTJ does sound very much like me.

I've always enjoyed the MBTI. In high school and early college, I would flip between INFP and ENFP. Then there was a solid 10 years or so of INFP. Interesting, I just retook it and scored INFJ quite definitively. It looks like this is related to becoming more of a planner than a creative. I feel like both the INFJ and INFP descriptions describe me pretty well.

For the INFJ decription from the link in the OP, my strategy is "Constant Improvement". Too true. I am always trying to figure out how I can do every single thing better. Sometimes I wish I could just relax and let things be. (So does my husband).

INTJ, always INTJ (INTJ-A on this particular test).

I can fully relate to this. I used to believe that I was an extrovert, and that being extroverted is a good thing (oddly, my introvert parents taught me this). I ascribed my frequent lapses of utter exhaustion after intense social interaction to "some weird trait of mine". When I found out that I am actually an introvert, it was quite an eye-opener for me.

Usually test as INTJ but this time was different. The descriptions fit me fairly well. I find it odd the numbers are so similar.

Your personality type: “The Logistician” (ISTJ-A)

Strength of individual traits: Introverted: 68%, Observant: 68%, Thinking: 50%, Judging: 50%, Assertive: 50%.
Role: Sentinel
Strategy: Confident Individualism

ETA: The relationship section was spot on.I have a small circle of friends. Romantically,I rarely seek out a partner and don't have much interest in random hookups. I do have a trend of developing a really strong interest in a girl(in general) about every 4 years and end up trying to pursue a relationship. It's been about 3 years since the last one..this could be a good year :P .

Used the link cmonkey provided
Did find myself answering quite a few neutrals. Not sure I see truth in the strengths and weaknesses but interesting to reflect on.
ENFP-A "The Campaigner"
Extraverted 56%
Intuitive 65%
Feeling 54%
Prospecting 64%
Assertive 64 %

Same, this is what I pretty much get (INFJ-A or INFP-A), though if I'm honest, I self identify as INFJ if I think through each category.

I went back and applied a don't cop out and answer neutral rule (although I still did for one question)
Moved me from "Diplomats" to "Analysts"

“THE DEFENDER” (ISFJ-A)
SENTINEL
CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALISM
64% INTROVERTED
77% OBSERVANT
70% FEELING
79% JUDGING
70% ASSERTIVE

Well, looks like I'm not the only ISFJ here, heyhey. I'm a nurse and the famous ISFJs are my role models: Mother Theresa and Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings :)
But the thing is... I don't like this 70% FEELING part. I love logic. But I find it only logical to be kind to people and to value their emotions, and not to argue with only reason to be right. Because most of the people have low IQs and they are driven by emotion with low emotional intelligence, at least my patients lol. And then I have to ask myself: "Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?"
And that is because it makes my job easier. Would I be 70% FEELING if I didn't have to work? The phrasing of the questions in the test asking more about "what you do?" instead of "what would you rather do?"

Another thing. Do I have a problem speaking in front of 1500 people? No. Would I rather not to? Absolutely. That's why I believe I'm 100% introverted, but I can become a bit extroverted, if I need to, driven by the logic. Whatever makes my life easier :)

This may go against the theory behind this test, but I seem to oscillate fairly consistently between two types, when using the "16 personalities" test in different situations.

I've found that I score ENFP-A when I take the test during weekends, and INTJ-A when I take the test at work. I actually think that this may reflect my behavior in different situations-

ENFP in daily life
INTJ when I am problem-solving (at work, personal projects, finances, even games)

I think that the ENFP seems fairly spot on concerning my personal life - I seem to make friends with ALL of the strangest people. However, I've noticed that I'm not very tolerant of "incorrect" opinions when tackling problems at work. Consequently I've learned that speaking my mind about the quality of others' work can be a poor political move :oops:

I wonder if there's a way for me to consciously switch between the two modes - I appreciate my INTJ problem-solver, but really think my ENFP would serve me better when it comes to office politics. Bah, I didn't even know office politics were a thing until I read this article http://earlyretirementextreme.com/are-y ... erism.html

INFJ

Reading the 16personalities explanation today made me feel better about myself. I plan to stay at my current job at least another two years, but sometimes it's rough and I'm disappointed in myself for not being able to handle it better. But after taking a couple tests and reading up on INFJs, I realize engineering just isn't a good fit for my personality, whereas growing up and into college it just always seemed like the logical choice because I was "good with computers and science".

Thinking ahead to the future, I'd be more interested in spending most of my life helping people in some way or doing something artistic. However the career path I chose was still my best option since it's still pretty much the best paying job I'd be willing & able to do. No regrets!

I'm just happy to know that there's nothing wrong with me for not wanting to stick with a career that seemed so right for me once upon a time. It's OK for me to want to abandon this path as soon as possible because it's just not right for me!

I just did the INTJ vs INTP test (came out INTP - 58%) went back to 16personalities and read the description for INTP and must admit, it feels a lot more like me than the INTJ type, although there is obvious overlap... its a bit odd to realise I may have typed myself incorrectly for over a year, but reading the INTP description, particularly the part about developing ideas by bouncing them of others, sort of testing the theory against reality as it were. It's clear to me now I am closer to INTP than INTJ. I do find myself constantly debating with myself and pondering about my ideas...

I wonder now if I had been borderline INTP/INTJ the last time I took the test and hadn't noticed! :D

I even recall going through the rebellious 'I am always right and everyone else is an idiot' phase.

Thinking about it, I even see it in my writing style... LOL.

So, INTJs are commonly associated with high IQ, rationality, et cetera. But how common are (apparently) low-IQ INTJs?

I suspect I have encountered one in my personal life*? Basically the personification of a contrary know-it-all troll whose (incessant) arguments involve a lot of false premises, fallacious (or phallacious) arguments, and woo. If anyone thought the ordinary high-functioning INTJs were annoying... :x

*That or I have reason to further question the validity of MBTI/likert scale tests for MBTI.

ETA: Wait, this individual says they usually test as either INTJ or ENTJ. Somehow this clarifies everything. :lol: (Settle down, extroverts, I'm going back in my cave.)
