What’s your personality type?

5 Jun

Ever found yourself doing a personality type test?

Yesterday I did a personality type test and thought it was a good way to get to know the-ME.  There are many tests which you can do as well to assess your personality. One of them is The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment which is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

I took two personality tests – The first was according to Carl’s Jung and the second one was Myers-Briggs Personality typology. Both tests gave the same result. So, I’m officially an INTJ human type, the Mastermind / the Scientist – and apparently INTJs are one of the rarest of the sixteen personality types, and account for about 1–4% of the population. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTJ

The overview of the sixteen personality types is described here. To be true, I couldn’t have better described myself. I do acknowledge the fact that I have a hard time being emotional or even display my emotions/feelings.

“…approach reality as they would a giant chess board, always seeking strategies that have a high payoff, and always devising contingency plans in case of error or adversity.”

“…observer, values solitude, perfectionist, detached, private… does not talk about feelings, hard to impress, analytical, likes esoteric things…”

– Jung Type Descriptions (INTJ) (similarminds.com)

“To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise — and INTJs can have several — they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how.”

– INTJ Profile (TypeLogic)

“At work, INTJs use their conceptual strengths to analyze situations and then develop models to understand and anticipate through relentlessly to reach their goals. They will continue on with their plans, even in the face of adversity and data that might suggest to other more practical types that their goals are no longer feasible. By nature, INTJs are independentindividualists.”

“INTJs are natural leaders, although they usually choose to remain in the background until they see a real need to take over the lead. When they are in leadership roles, they are quite effective, because they are able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough to change things which aren’t working well. They are the supreme strategists – always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every conceivable contingency. “
