Jung - Myers-Briggs

Speaking of dreams and personalities, I took a Jung - Myers-Briggs test today...

Back in the day, it was sort of a quick test and an alternative to a head shrink.

Does htis describe me?

slightly expressed extrovert
slightly expressed intuitive personality
slightly expressed thinking personality
slightly expressed judging personality

I shrug my shoulders and say "okay...."

See I look at that and go "huh?"

What was the description of your personality type? I took it and got:

moderately expressed introvert

moderately expressed intuitive personality

distinctively expressed feeling personality

moderately expressed judging personality

Rachel said...

Here are my descriptions, if anyone's interested.

Keirsey's analysis

Butt (lol) and Heiss's analysis

I took that at school a few years ago. I'm an INFP. For most of them I was moderatley expressed, except for the feeling part. I think on that one I got as high as you could.
Rachel and I are very similar then!

Diana said...

Introvert
Intuitive
Feeler
Perciever

I took this one and I came out with the same results. Here is my description.

Don't know how to make links.

Hey Di, didja notice that the other Di (the royal one) was an INFP, too?

I think I'm ENTP or ENTJ.

We studied these things quite a bit in my psychology classes when I was in grad school.

They just kind of help you to see what "type" of person you are. Of course, people change and this is more for personal knowledge than for some sort of rating or placement criteria.

I like these tests in that they help you to understand yourself better, but don't like them in that people usually pideon-hole themselves or others when they read them.

Very interesting, though.

bigsip said...

pigeon-hole, that is.

I think I am MILF... or TTVT...

Diana said...

There's another Princess Diana besides me???
Yeah, I did, I thought that was cool. I thought that was cool. I was named after her too. And Elenore Roosevelt was a yours.

I'm big on studying multiple intelligences now, it provides more dimension to people's personalities and learning styles. I can see you appreciating that whole theory more, Josh. Josh is definatly Musical, Rachel's visual, Mullins is interpersonal, Charlie's visual, Brewster is verbal, but you all have different intelligences too. What's cool is that if you were in my kindergarten class I would know how to adapt my lesson to fit each one of you. It's fun.

Jamison is a MILF. I love your websites

mullinz8 said...

Di, Interpersonal... Does this mean that someday I'll be found arguing with my reflections?

Rachel said...

lol... i remember having to ask josh what milf meant once when we were watching a movie where they said that.

Diana said...

american pie I assume.
Intrapersonal means shy, you know yourself well, not big on groups.
Interpersonal is good with people, charming, etc.

Jamison said...

MILF = mothers id like to f....

never seen american pie...

bigsip said...

You can be intrapersonal and interpersonal. I'm both. Intrapersonal means you know yourself well and interpersonal means you can read others well.

Introvert means you don't do well with groups. Extroverts do, though.

If you're intrapersonal, you're more likely to be introspective.

Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and...

Diana said...

Yeah I'm both. I'm good with people but uncomfortable with them.
