Quiz - How Rare is your Personality Type?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have you heard of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator? There is a veritable rabbit hole of information on the test and the personality types.

I have taken it a variety of times during college and this little test looks like its right on since this is one of the two types I generally get designated with. Its an interesting test and the personality descriptions for the professional version are really quite good.

This silly little quiz is actually cute and I especially like the brilliant bit (tee hee). However, it doesn’t figure my lack of memory skill and my extremely bad spelling (thank goodness for Mozilla’s browser spell check and my husband!).

So go for it – What is your personality type? Then go to this site and type in one of the words describing you, choose a picture and add it to your post. Link it here in the comments and share.

Here's me - Shellie: Goofy – I think that says it all!

Your Personality is Very Rare (INTP)

Your personality type is goofy, imaginative, relaxed, and brilliant. Only about 4% of all people have your personality, including 2% of all women and 6% of all men. You are Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.

Here's John: Spirited to the right

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISTP)

Your personality type is reserved, methodical, spirited, and intense. Only about 6% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 8% of all men. You are Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving.

Now its your turn. Have fun and happy Friday everybody!

Well, I was more extroverted when I was younger, but oh well. As such, I found a pic of the Hong Kong skyline, under "artistic".

Wow, what a great quiz. It pretty much hits me on the spot, but for one word: Judging. I'm not sure if that means I judge people or I judge myself? If it's the latter, then I'm good; if not, meh.

Your Personality is the Rarest (INFJ)
Your personality type is introspective, principled, self critical, and sensitive.

Only about 2% of all people have your personality - including 3% of all women and around 1% of all men.
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging.

Strike that. I understand the Judging thing now. Perhaps I should've read that Wiki article before I posted...

Bill -
Artistic that's great...

You know when I was younger I was ENTP - extroverted.... now INTP..introverted too... go figure.

Excellent pic!

Logan -
The rarest eh...cool
lol...about the judging bit..
beyond the test I am think definitely analytical...makes a great engineer.

Yes the professional version is a little more in depth.

*******************

Its really a great test. There is also some sort of personal comparability factors between types. And there is some logic and science behind it - which is cool.

Thanks for sharing!

Guess our personalities aren't all that rare, as I got the exact same answer as Shellie! *L*

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Alexia -
Lol!... and we are both Taurus too. You think it was planned? Some sort of big brother thing?

Goodness - it goes to show how silly these little tests are.. but fun....

Thanks for sharing. :)

Bill (commenter 1 above) must be twins who were born at different times in different cities (or states, or countries).

Nevertheless, I'd say this little test is pretty darn accurate.

Haha I got the same as you, Shellie! :) ANd, I can say, I think it fits me well, though, some of the questions I wanted to answer "all of the above!" lol

Cool test

Emily -
I love Myers Brigg as well, so when I saw this silly test I thought how fun.

Your picture is pretty, nice choice and dreamy is such a wonderful word.

Laurel -
Nice picture for intuative and you got the same type as Emily.

I have so much fun with flicr.com.

Charlie -
Wow we are getting so many doubles here for this test.

I'm thinking that even though the actual test takes an hour or so to determine your type that this little one may be pretty good at doing it as well. Except they may be off with the rarity of it all see below...

Krista -
I knew I liked you...:)
LOl now four of us have gotten this type so far and it says we are rare.... how funny is that?

Crystal -
I was thinking we had a lot in common too...
Alexia, Krista, me and now yourself... how funny all INTP - now how rare is that? I think that's a 40% chance...oh dear.
