Sep 28, '07Joined: Jun '04; Posts: 617; Likes: 257Wow, am I the only INTJ here? My numbers broke down as I (56), N (38), T (1), J (1).
My suggested careers were natural science, engineering, law, or library sciences. Nothing about nursing. LOL--oh well, I'm in nursing school and loving it (or in theory I'm loving it). Ha ha.

But looking at the list I would see me self as an ENFP. But I know if I took the test it would probaly show very different. Can anyone anwer the where and why for the test?

I took it the first time as part of a training seminar for an extracurricular activity (a campus-based crisis hotline), then the second time as part of a supervisor training class for my last job before nursing. The hope is that it will help you understand more about yourself and how you relate to others. It is also frequently offered by college counseling/career centers to help students in making career or major decisions.I have never formally taken the test, not sure where you take it or why.

In addition to the paper-and-pencil versions offered in these settings, there are online links where you can take the MBTI.

Even though I know my Myers-Briggs type, I took it out of curiosity. It took me about 5 minutes, and it did result in the same answer I have gotten from the Myers Briggs Personality Inventory. Don't be fearful. The descriptions of all of the personaly types are positive.

i played around tonight with some different tests, and got a different result each time.
http://www.humanmetrics.com was intj (67, 12, 38, 33)
http://www.similarminds.com was infj (82, 68, 68, 56)
http://www.kisa.ca/personality/ was istj (93, 50, 50, 73)
http://www.teamtechnology.co.uk/mmdi-re/mmdi-re.htm was isfp
when i read the descriptions, i most identified with intj, intp, and isfj.
so, i'm definitly introverted, beyond that, i guess a pretty even mix.
