misunderstandings

     Is it just me, or do other people here have trouble making a point in conversations. It is as if people go out of their way to misunderstand me. Even worse, no matter how many times I say I am no smarter then anyone else, I am told that I think I am smart and everyone else is stupid. Sometimes I say people are retarded to make a point, but I dont feel that way and make sure to...

What do you do when you want to do it all?

I'm 35 years old and having trouble finding a career that will suit my personality type. I do not see myself working in one field, but working in many. Is there such a career?

You May Be an Introvert or an Extravert

You are an Intuitive

You May Be a Feeler or a Thinker

You Are a Perceiver

Low E ENTP

by Guest on Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 7:56pm

I am trying to learn more about us fence straddling I/E NTP types.  My NTP scores were very high, but my E is extremely low so I appear to swerve in and out of each type, or, more precicsely, I tend toward s being an INTP that likes to debate or an ENTP that prefers to spend time solving complex problems. Is there any information available that explores this duality?

My I N and P are very strong.  my T and F very marginal difference. I agree with the sites match personality because I know from past love that INFJ is SOOOO the match for me. so I'm going for the long shot that the one infj that might be searching for me too wil see this.  Relationship is such a wonderful thing- I gotta try.

So, I'm new here on this site. I don't know my MBTI type, I've tested for INFP a lot but it me also changed to INTP, I asked people on Reddit to typify me and it was either INFP or INFJ. 

I recently did the big five factor one:

Openness: 85%

Conscientiouness: 10% (I think I can thank ADHD for that)

Extraversion: 23%

Agreeableness: 58%

MBTI types and mental illness

by Guest on Friday, August 11, 2017 - 6:21pm

Does anyone know how much (if at all) mental illness can affect the outcome of your personality test? I am an ENFP, but part of me wonders if my depression makes me feel more P than J, or that my anxiety can make me more I than E, etc. 

Maybe it's a moot point, but I have always wondered about this. 

Anyone have any insight on this? Or resources for more information?

My MBTI personality falls bewteen INTP and INTJ

by 100db on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 - 5:53pm

My question is have taken the MBTI Test many times before and the results that got were INTP and INTJ. Most of the time I fall in the range of the INTP family but once in a while i will test into the INTJ group. My question is that since i can do both, can those types fuse together to work with each another or I am able to switch between gears for both those personalities. Because when u break...

So, I have a (personality quirk?), I'm not sure what to call it to be honest. I experience one emotion much more complexly than the others. I'm aware most people have a very (shallow?) depth to the pools of their own emotions in totality. And this is even more true for me in all cases but one. Anger. I personally think that everyone has two to three " levels" of each emotion, and of most of...

Careers for INTPs

by Guest on Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 2:25am

Hi, I'm 18 and an INTP.

I've always been very confused and uncertain when it comes to career choices. I've always had a very wide choice of careers as I excel in anything I apply myself to (although I have problems with motivation) and I find that I'm naturally good at most things. As a result I've never had a clear path.

I've considered so many careers with the ones I've most...

I pretty consistently test as right between intp and infp.  You might think that makes a small difference unless you know the kind of laughable machinations of the Myers-Briggs thing.  A test that asks you things about yourself and then spits out pretty much the same things about yourself.  Argh.  You might as well take some test somebody made up about what kind of kitties you like.  I wish...

I was thinking about this stuff a few days ago, and reading over some of the personality types. I'm not certain because I didn't test at the time, but I think a couple of years ago I was INTP, because it sounds just like I was. Overtime I became a more..kind person, I suppose? Working hard to be kinder and help others until it became natural. When I first tested, I got INFP, and at the time it...

More than one person has commented that I seem a completely different person around my younger siblings, and I have to agree with them. To others I come off as cold, sarcastic, and overly analytic, to the point several people have stated openly their...

I was wondering if this is a common thing for most people, because my scores in the other 8 personalities ranged from the mid 40's to the low 5o's. Does my age have something to do with these scores,...
