    What's wrong with that?

    The career chart put in in HR. Ugh! I'll trade with you.

    The weirdest thing is; I took the test only yesterday! I first heard of it just a few weeks ago when some teacher friends were discussing it.
    I was actually quite surprised at the accuracy of the result.
    However, the careers suggested on page 1 here couldn't be further from reality.

    Which one is most skeptical? For instance, I seriously doubt the validity of personality tests. Or astrology.

    We did the MB assessment at work about 8 years ago. The full test was about 100 questions if I remember correctly. It turned out to be incredibly accurate for most. When I read the description for mine (ENTJ), it was like someone had handed me the owner's manual to my brain. Things that I thought that I was just weird about turned out to be ingrained personality traits to a ENTJ.

    It was also interesting to see the dispersion across our team. All of the executives and managers except one were in one corner of the grid.

    Apparently I'm an ISFP-A. Reasonably accurate results on the whole, I guess.

    I have a feeling that some of those 16 combinations will not be represented on the TDPRI, because some people just don't "get" music. And Telecasters (and other guitars) make music.

    Or rather, I have such a thought.

    It said a lot of good things about me that I agreed with. I disagreed with all the other stuff.

    Years ago, I took a whole bunch of these tests. The results were that I should either be a neurobiologist or a contractor. Since I already was a contractor, I skipped grad school. I can't remember what I got on the M-B test, but it was the extreme opposite of my wife. It's been an interesting 30 year marriage so far.

    MB is about describing how people gather, process and respond to information as well as how they are energized or expend mental energy. It's descriptive of general categories, not not prescriptive or purified way.

    At the surface level, MB categories are pretty useless but when you dig down and understand degrees of types (I straddle the line between INFP and INTP) they can be very helpful for embracing some underlying innate strengths and compensating for blind spots.

    Advocate: INFJ-T. My girlfriend just had me take the test a week or so ago, as it happens. It was pretty revealing.

    She's an architect, INTJ.

    Mine said: "An exciting adventure with a mysterious stranger awaits!"

    Just kidding, "ISFP-T" Don't know the significance of "T."

    PS: I just Googled and read that ISFPs live in the moment. Funny, yesterday I replied to another thread where I was critical of the idea of "living in the moment."

    I don't know what the "-T" means either; if anyone does, please share the info!

    ISFP-A, "Adventurer" I got the guitar-player avatar.

    I remember doing the M-B personality test back in Psyc-101. No memory of my score back then.

    20+ yrs ago, there was an online version that generated your "medieval" archetype and we all did it at the office. I essentially got the same results: ISFP "discoverer"

    Edit: the site/test is still out there: "Kingdomality"...
