What Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality type are you?

Who here has taken the MBTI?

What is your personality type?

Do you agree that the common traits associated with that type match you?

It says I'm INTP, but I think the questions are very general, and I'm pretty adaptable to situations.

I don't know how accurate these are, but the links at the bottom of this page offer analysis of relationship compatibility.

Your Type is
ENFJ
Extroverted Intuitive Feeling Judging
Strength of the preferences %
1 50 50 44



ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are.

ENFJs are global learners. They see the big picture. The ENFJs focus is expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously. Many ENFJs have tremendous entrepreneurial ability.

ENFJs are, by definition, Js, with whom we associate organization and decisiveness. But they don't resemble the SJs or even the NTJs in organization of the environment nor occasional recalcitrance. ENFJs are organized in the arena of interpersonal affairs. Their offices may or may not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than those of their NFP counterparts.

ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear.

TRADEMARK: "The first shall be last"
This refers to the open-door policy of ENFJs. One ENFJ colleague always welcomes me into his office regardless of his own circumstances. If another person comes to the door, he allows them to interrupt our conversation with their need. While discussing that need, the phone rings and he stops to answer it. Others drop in with a 'quick question.' I finally get up, go to my office and use the call waiting feature on the telephone. When he hangs up, I have his undivided attention!

Functional Analysis:

Extraverted Feeling
Extraverted Feeling rules the ENFJ's psyche. In the sway of this rational function, these folks are predisposed to closure in matters pertaining to people, and especially on behalf of their beloved. As extraverts, their contacts are wide ranging. Face-to-face relationships are intense, personable and warm, though they may be so infrequently achieved that intimate friendships are rare.

Introverted iNtuition

Like their INFJ cousins, ENFJs are blessed through introverted intuition with clarity of perception in the inner, unconscious world. Dominant Feeling prefers to find the silver lining in even the most beggarly perceptions of those in their expanding circle of friends and, of course, in themselves. In less balanced individuals, such mitigation of the unseemly eventually undermines the ENFJ's integrity and frequently their good name. In healthier individuals, deft use of this awareness of the inner needs and desires of others enables this astute type to win friends, influence people, and avoid compromising entanglements.
The dynamic nature of their intuition moves ENFJs from one project to another with the assurance that the next one will be perfect, or much more nearly so than the last. ENFJs are continually looking for newer and better solutions to benefit their extensive family, staff, or organization.

Extraverted Sensing
Sensing is extraverted. ENFJs can manage details, particularly those necessary to implement the prevailing vision. These data have, however, a magical flexible quality. Something to be bought can be had for a song; the same something is invaluable when it's time to sell. (We are not certain, but we suspect that such is the influence of the primary function.) This wavering of sensory perception is made possible by the weaker and less mature status with which the tertiary is endowed.

Introverted Thinking
Introverted Thinking is least apparent and most enigmatic in this type. In fact, it often appears only when summoned by Feeling. At times only in jest, but in earnest if need be, Thinking entertains as logical only those conclusions which support Feeling's values. Other scenarios can be shown invalid or at best significantly inferior. Such "Thinking in the service of Feeling" has the appearance of logic, but somehow it never quite adds up.

Introverted Thinking is frequently the focus of the spiritual quest of ENFJs. David's lengthiest psalm, 119, pays it homage. "Law," "precept," "commandment," "statute:" these essences of inner thinking are the mysteries of Deity for which this great Feeler's soul searched.

Famous ENFJs:
David, King of Israel
U.S. Presidents:
Abraham Lincoln
Ronald Reagan

William Cullen Bryant, poet
Abraham Maslow, psychologist and proponent of self-actualization
Ross Perot
Sean Connery
Elizabeth Dole
Francois Mitterand

Here is me
I took this from my Myspace page where I just put **** up that's about as helpful in getting to know me as knowing my favorite music and TV shows and whatnot and whatnots
I think it's 3 test/quizzes in one. You get to see my answers for one of the tests, though. Are you going to read it? It's fair enough. Maybe I should stick to the TV and movie favorites?
I don't know how to add page breaks and stuff. I wouldn't add them even if I knew how.

As a rule, current preoccupations worry you more than your future plans NO You find it difficult to talk about your feelings No You feel at ease in a crowd YES You do your best to complete a task on time YES You are strongly touched by the stories about people's troubles YES You are more interested in a general idea than in the details of its realization YES Strict observance of the established rules is likely to prevent a good outcome NO Often you prefer to read a book than go to a party NO You tend to rely on your experience rather than on theoretical alternatives NO It's difficult to get you excited YES You rapidly get involved in social life at a new workplace NO It is in your nature to assume responsibility YES You frequently and easily express your feelings and emotions YES You often think about humankind and its destiny YES You believe the best decision is one that can be easily changed NO You are a person somewhat reserved and distant in communication YES You prefer to act immediately rather than speculate about various options NO You trust reason rather than feelings NO You spend your leisure time actively socializing with a group of people, attending parties, shopping, etc. NO You usually plan your actions in advance No Your actions are frequently influenced by emotions NO You often contemplate about the complexity of life YES You often do jobs in a hurry NO You find it difficult to speak loudly YES You get bored if you have to read theoretical books No You value justice higher than mercy NO The more people with whom you speak, the better you feel YES You like to keep a check on how things are progressing YES You easily empathize with the concerns of other people YES You are more inclined to experiment than to follow familiar approaches YES You avoid being bound by obligations YES You prefer to isolate yourself from outside noises YES It's essential for you to try things with your own hands NO You think that almost everything can be analyzed YES You are usually the first to react to a sudden event: the telephone ringing or unexpected question NO You take pleasure in putting things in order YES You feel involved when watching TV soaps NO You easily understand new theoretical principles YES The process of searching for solution is more important to you than the solution itself YES You usually place yourself nearer to the side than in the center of the room YES When solving a problem you would rather follow a familiar approach than seek a new one NO You try to stand firmly by your principles YES It is easy for you to communicate in social situations YES You are consistent in your habits NO You willingly involve yourself in matters which engage your sympathies YES You easily perceive various ways in which events could develop YES A thirst for adventure is close to your heart YES You prefer meeting in small groups to interaction with lots of people YES When considering a situation you pay more attention to the current situation and less to a possible sequence of events NO You consider the scientific approach to be the best YES You enjoy having a wide circle of acquaintances NO You are almost never late for your appointments YES You readily help people while asking nothing in return YES You often spend time thinking of how things could be improved YES Your decisions are based more on the feelings of a moment than on the careful planning NO You prefer to spend your leisure time alone or relaxing in a tranquil family atmosphere No You feel more comfortable sticking to conventional ways YES Objective criticism is always useful in any activity YES You enjoy being at the center of events in which other people are directly involved YES You know how to put every minute of your time to good purpose YES You are easily affected by strong emotions YES You are always looking for opportunities YES Deadlines seem to you to be of relative, rather than absolute, importance YES After prolonged socializing you feel you need to get away and be alone YES Your desk, workbench etc. is usually neat and orderly YES You tend to be unbiased even if this might endanger your good relations with people YES You like to be engaged in an active and fast-paced job YES You have good control over your desires and temptations YES You tend to sympathize with other people YES You easily see the general principle behind specific occurrences YES You are inclined to rely more on improvisation than on careful planning YES You get pleasure from solitary walks YES I am an iNFj personality type Counselor Idealist. abstract in thought and speech, cooperative in reaching their goals, and directive and introverted in their interpersonal roles. Counselors focus on human potentials, think in terms of ethical values, and come easily to decisions. The small number of this type (little more than 2 percent) is regrettable, since Counselors have an unusually strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others and genuinely enjoy helping their companions. Although Counsleors tend to be private, sensitive people, and are not generally visible leaders, they nevertheless work quite intensely with those close to them, quietly exerting their influence behind the scenes with their families, friends, and colleagues. This type has great depth of personality; they are themselves complicated, and can understand and deal with complex issues and people. Counselors can be hard to get to know. They have an unusually rich inner life, but they are reserved and tend not to share their reactions except with those they trust. With their loved ones, certainly, Counselors are not reluctant to express their feelings, their face lighting up with the positive emotions, but darkening like a thunderhead with the negative. Indeed, because of their strong ability to take into themselves the feelings of others, Counselors can be hurt rather easily by those around them, which, perhaps, is one reason why they tend to be private people, mutely withdrawing from human contact. At the same time, friends who have known a Counselor for years may find sides emerging which come as a surprise. Not that they are inconsistent; Counselors value their integrity a great deal, but they have intricately woven, mysterious personalities which sometimes puzzle even them. Beneath the quiet exterior, INFJs hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life. Those who are activists -- INFJs gravitate toward such a role -- are there for the cause, not for personal glory or political power. INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs are not easily led. These are the people that you can rarely fool any of the time. Though affable and sympathetic to most, INFJs are selective about their friends. Such a friendship is a symbiotic bond that transcends mere words. INFJs have a knack for fluency in language and facility in communication. In addition, nonverbal sensitivity enables the INFJ to know and be known by others intimately. distinguished by both their complexity of character and the unusual range and depth of their talents. Strongly humanitarian in outlook, INFJs tend to be idealists, and because of their J preference for closure and completion, they are generally "doers" as well as dreamers. INFJs are deeply concerned about their relations with individuals as well as the state of humanity at large. They are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people -- a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious "soul mates." While instinctively courting the personal and organizational demands continually made upon them by others, at intervals INFJs will suddenly withdraw into themselves, sometimes shutting out even their intimates. This apparent paradox is a necessary escape valve for them, providing both time to rebuild their depleted resources and a filter to prevent the emotional overload to which they are so susceptible as inherent "givers." As a pattern of behavior, it is perhaps the most confusing aspect of the enigmatic INFJ character to outsiders, and hence the most often misunderstood -- particularly by those who have little experience with this rare type. Due in part to the unique perspective produced by this alternation between detachment and involvement in the lives of the people around them, INFJs may well have the clearest insights of all the types into the motivations of others, for good and for evil. Usually self-expression comes more easily to INFJs on paper, as they tend to have strong writing skills. Since in addition they often possess a strong personal charisma, INFJs are generally well-suited to the "inspirational" professions Proud of themselves in the degree they are empathic in action, respect themselves in the degree they are benevolent, and feel confident of themselves in the degree they are authentic. Idealist types search for their unique identity, hunger for deep and meaningful relationships, wish for a little romance each day, trust their intuitive feelings implicitly, aspire for profundity. Idealists search for ideal love, longing to find the one perfect "soul mate" with whom they can share their inner lives. Perceptually, subconsciously, and consciously aware of fantasy, symbols, symbolic relationships, abstract ideas, options, and choice of options as they relate to creative or innovative activities. Conscious of existence, meaning, purpose, potential and destiny of humankind, people, and self. Motivated very little by physically working with things and objects Has little need for or is not motivated by recognition, status, or competitive gain. Prefers and may even require change and variety. Sameness and routine cause loss of interest, drive, and energy. Looks for new options, challenges, assignments, acquaintances, relationships, and even new careers in new places. Tires of sameness, repetition, and routine even in activities that were interesting at the start. Once things become routine this becomes a motivation to move on to more interesting things. Benevolent, voluntarily giving of self to help others Strongly motivated to be organizationally active with others. Motivated to influence and convince others Talented and self-sufficient Does not prefer being tied to or tied down by timed, repetitious sensory/physical activity. Intuitive, insightful, creative, curious, experimentational, and innovative. Ideas are at the heart of this individual. Preferences and motivations are derived from understanding the deeper or 'real' meaning Drawn to intellectual and/or analytical work Preferences are effected but not dominated by such things as beauty, color, and spatial measure Motivational levels are highest where awareness of specific detail is most likely. Not motivated for what is called `workbench' activity Mentor: a trusted counselor or guide Interested in and consciously prefers to consider the existence, meaning, purpose, potential, and destiny of mankind, people, persons, and self; with self-felt, self-accepted responsibility to influence and/or cause good, growth, and gain in the lives of all concerned. An intuitive and philosophical curiosity that causes an awareness of personality, intentions, emotions, ethics, values, and moods of other persons, and of self. Philosophical, literary, scientific, managerial and/or persuasive traits are involved in his motivation Highly motivated to assertively, even aggressively, make direct personal contact Moderately motivated by being "on stage" in order to pleasantly influence others toward a particular viewpoint Not motivated toward processing activities, no matter what is being processed or who is doing the processing. "Being stuck to a machine all day" is not satisfying Motivations are not compatible with assembly line activity Motivated by seeing the big picture so much so that (s)he, attempts to see all parts of the picture in that larger context, then sees all parts relative to each other, but still within that larger context. Perception and thinking are therefore holistic and conceptual. Has analytical, research, and innovative preferences. Motivated to coordinate Does not prefer mailroom activities Strongly motivated to apply thinking to the big picture through holistic ideas, concepts, options, and strategies. This does not mean, suggest, or imply that thinking is kept only in a holistic context but it does mean that the first and constant priority or preference for consideration and focus are on the big picture. More likely prefers to be an executive rather than a manager, and more inclined to be a manager rather than a supervisor. Considering how pieces of the picture are brought in to the big picture stimulates motivation for the activity. Applies scientific/technical/logical thinking to the fullest extent this ability exists Methodical, meticulous, routine activities do not motivate, are not acceptable, or tolerable May get 'system claustrophobia' Prefers management math because it includes a specialization for managing with math, i.e., making management decisions with knowledge gained from this level of mathematical activity. NOTE: Chief Financial Officers, Comptrollers, bank officers, CPAs, and auditors rate high in this trait. Prefers to consider math extending more toward theory, abstract concepts, experimental applications, etc. Preferences tend to be methodically curious, exploratory, analytical and systematic Not motivated by routine, basic mathematic-oriented activities and prefers not to work with math nor depend on math May simply lack interest or the motivation to express self vocationally through the use of basic math skills Highly motivated to consider creative writing and communicating at professional levels. "Ideas trigger more ideas" Motivation at this level indicate preferences that probably include writing fiction, poetry, scripts for movies or television, advertising copy, marketing copy, teaching creative writing, etc. Does not pay particularly close attention to non-motivational information Technical information management is not a motivational factor ..Still don't know me, though.
Who I'd like to meet: not bored enough yet to complete.

Apparently, I'm a ISTJ. I don't think the preferences for a couple of the traits are real strong, but I've taken the test two or three times over several years and gotten the same feedback.

I think the portrait description fits me pretty well.

According to this, I should be on the look out for a hot ESFP or ENFP. Are you out there? Call me.
