# Your type formula according to Carl Jung and Isabel Myers-Briggs typology along with the strengths of the preferences # The description of your personality type # The list of occupations and educational institutions where you can get relevant degree or training, most suitable for your personality type.
I got a kick out of two of the figures supposed to represent my type -- Simon Peter, supposedly the apostle who represents my astrological sign, and Lucy from Peanuts. In my family, each of the kids is typified by a Peanuts character. Mine is Lucy.
I have difficulty with these kinds of tests because the questions could be answered differently based on context. For example, there was a question about spending an evening out socializing or quietly at home/tranquil family environment. I am a very social person, however my 2 oldest kids are in college or on their own so if I had a choice between a party or spending quiet time with them, I would choose the latter.
I have taken the Myers-Briggs test several times in the past and the only constants were the extroverted and perceiving parts. I seem to be a bit schizo otherwise.
Well -- I have obviously gone the wrong way in life -- I should have been a nurse or a receptionist??? And other than Nancy Reagan, I've never heard of most of the people who are supposed to be similar.
I am an ENFP (the champion), have done different versions of Myers-Briggs a few times and pretty much always come out as ENFP, like Bixa said about her type, I think it is my personality but to an exagerated degree.
The type are not always fixed for people though, mostly they can and do change depending on mood and current situation.
The strengths of traits and how they work are probably best left to psychologists than us. I had to study it as part of my MSc and it made no sense to us mere mortals who just wanted an overview of how it works

Yes, I'm sure if I took it in a different atmosphere #1,the results would be different,and #2,the time of day would be a major factor as well. I used to administer these types of tests to clients and it was real obvious to me how certain teeny tiny little things would change the overall results. I found myself getting bored and started skipping around,answered questions from the bottom up after a certain point etc.
Casimira, the participants in that Wash U study don't find out about their individual results. Eventually we get to see what they concluded about us as a group. I thought it was interesting that they wanted to see whether a person who thought of herself as for instance an easygoing party girl had a husband who found her a control freak.
I forgot all about the interview, months ago, until I got a birthday card signed by the "Personality Study." Maybe they're tying our personalities in with our astrological signs. Now that would be interesting.
I dispute the thinking bit, but I have a feeling INTJ is what's come up before on these things.
Apparently I'm a Mastermind, which is why I have no compunction in telling you I wouldn't give tuppence for the universities that are advertised as offering suitable courses (how's that for slightly expressed thinking and moderately expressed judgement?!). It also appears I'm a System Builder - which is no doubt why I keep putting off the ironing.
