Now, I don't necessary like being filed into a neat little box, but I do rather enjoy looking at the boxes and seeing which ones are the most Dizzy-shaped.

I'm an INFP. :D Introverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving.

"Personality traits of an INFP: creative, smart, idealist, loner, attracted to sad things, disorganized, avoidant, can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings.

Prone to quitting, prone to feelings of loneliness, ambivalent of the rules, solitary, daydreams about people to maintain a sense of closeness, focus on fantasies, acts without planning, low self confidence, emotionally moody, can feel defective, prone to lateness, likes esoteric things.

Wounded at the core, feels shame, frequently losing things, prone to sadness, prone to dreaming about a rescuer, disorderly, observer, easily distracted, does not like crowds, can act without thinking, private, can feel uncomfortable around others, familiar with the dark side, hermit.

More likely to support marijuana legalization, can sabotage self, likes the rain, sometimes can't control fearful thoughts, prone to crying, prone to regret, attracted to the counter culture, can be submissive, prone to feeling discouraged, frequently second guesses self, not punctual, not always prepared, can feel victimized, prone to confusion, prone to irresponsibility, can be pessimistic."

Everything fits to a tee except lateness and irresponsibility (to an extent), but that's more upbringing than personality.

The bit that I found funny (or saddening, really) was the list of favored careers.

"Favored careers: poet, painter, freelance artist, musician, writer, art therapist, teacher (art, music, drama), songwriter, art historian, library assistant, composer, work in the performing arts, art curator, playwrite, bookseller, cartoonist, video editor, photographer, philosopher, record store owner, digital artist, cinematographer, costume designer, film producer, philosophy professor, librarian, music therapist, environmentalist, movie director, activist, bookstore owner, filmmaker."

Ah. All the wonderful yet painfully impractical choices... -sigh-

So what are y'all? Just curious. ^^ Test here, if y'like: similarminds.com/jung.html

I'm not surprised, based on your... writing style. Yeah. Two of my best friends are INFPs. You guys are fricking awesome. I must say though, this test is very inaccurate due to poor questions and formatting. It also allows for a lot of flip-flopping. Take at least 8 when you are doing them online and take time to read up on them all. This one seems to fit you- if it does, great. Thanks to weeks of reading and taking many tests I finally pinned myself down to an INTJ.

Oh really? My writing style? (Just curious, that's all. ^^)

Yeah, I took one or two others and was floored by questions like "Do you value justice over mercy?" How on earth can that be a yes-or-no question?

Things like "attracted to sad things," "daydreams about people to maintain a sense of closeness," "sometimes can't control fearful thoughts," and the general insecurity are completely spot-on. :P

Ah, INTJ... ambition and planning skills. I'm quite jealous. :XD:

I don't know... something about how you write, how you perceive the world. Your moods that come through in your writing. Two of my closest friends are INFP, so I'm used to seeing it.

INTJ... it's a cursed blessing. Very exhausting, being one of us. We also come across as being dark and mean without meaning to.

ISTP, but I'm actually 50/50 on that S so depending on the day I can be INTP.
100% introvert.

But I'm pretty sure my sister has the same as you, she ends up with much the same career suggestions.

INFJ

Introverted (I) 57.89% Extroverted (E) 42.11%
Intuitive (N) 52.63% Sensing (S) 47.37%
Feeling (F) 52.63% Thinking (T) 47.37%
Judging (J) 70.59% Perceiving (P) 29.41%

INFJ - "Author". Strong drive and enjoyment to help others. Complex personality. 1.5% of total population.

I'm surprise how near the 50% mark they all are. I guess I'm pretty balanced. Except in that last area, anyways. But regardless, I would say it's accurate.

I came up as INTJ, strongly introverted and far less so on the other qualities.

:hmm: Apparently, those like myself and *Nemonus compose only about 2% of the population. Which begs the question as to whether two out of nine (so far) is a statistical fluke, or that social media sites like :dalogo: provide a safe harbor for thinking judgmental introverts, or perhaps that introverted intuition (and perhaps, perceptiveness) are favorable traits in solitary occupations such as writing.

That's a really interesting thing to notice. INTJ is the "architect" trope - a creative outlet in which we 'build' things but also have a rigid structure to put them in (i.e. deviations, comments etc.) seems like a natural fit to me.

I say all of the above, plus the fact that introverted intuitives probably need some sort of creative pursuit to keep themselves sane.

And writing/drawing is not only more socially-acceptable than (say) taking over the world, you also have to deal with far fewer people along the way. ;p

I always thought these were interesting. I'm an INTJ, which means lots of strategic planning and high standards. AKA a bit of a poor match for the random, standardless world. Should be more science than creativity, but I'm a writer. :P

The part where it says that INTJs often have an addiction to mindless, repetitive, self-destructive tasks is so spot-on it's frightening.

A lot of my friends are INFPs. We usually have the same interests but sometimes look at emotions in very different ways.

Well, sometimes I want to be an Introvert, but my wife is so introverted that I have to function as the extrovert. I also believe that my logic and abstract reasoning skills developed more in college than in high school. That, and getting my depression under control, probably made me more of a "T".

I used to think those sorts of things were impractical. I used to think of it this way,"if there was an apocalypse now what good would knowing how to paint like Van Gogh do?" Now I figure humans desperately need "impracticality" as much as they make fun of those pursuing such a career cause when all that's left is a smoldering city, I'm going to want to look at something or read something or listen to something or watch something beautiful every once in a while to get me through that shit.
