Writer's Block: Taking It Personally
Have you ever taken a personality test like the Myers-Briggs or Enneagram? If so, did you agree with the results? And what was your type?

Although I've never taken the full MBTI, I have taken the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, which gives a Myers-Briggs type as a result, it's just derived differently. At any rate, I split evenly between INFP and INTP (which is sometimes written INXP). I find that a great deal of both type descriptions apply to me. Some of the points which seem particularly applicable include:

  • The polite, reserved exterior of INFPs can at first make them difficult to get to know. They enjoy conversation, however, taking particular delight in the unusual. When INFPs are in a sociable mood, their humor and charm shine through. Disposed to like people and to avoid conflict, INFPs tend to make pleasant company.

  • They are very curious about systems and how things work, and are frequently found in careers such as science, architecture and law. INTPs tend to be less at ease in social situations and the "caring professions," although they enjoy the company of those who share their interests.

INTPs and INFPs are similar. I'm an INTP, and my last three love-interests have been INFPs. The similarity in thinking is wonderful.

But that's not why I'm posting! You see, I'm on a crusade to find more INTPs and to help them understand their type. I have two links for you. :D

This article describes the differences in the dichotomies. You should just skip to the T/F difference.

And if you think you're INTP, then try reading this profile. It's the best INTP profile that exists!

If you find yourself chuckling while reading the profile... well then welcome to the club! Our meetings are daily at the INTPforum.com ;) We also have a populace of INFPs we appreciate.
