I think that it lacks implementation, is basically an abstraction of what you think of yourself, and draws the lines incorrectly since most people are in the middle.

Took the test got INFP although INTP also fits me. Looking at the results Feeling vs Thinking were nearly a tie.

As long as it starts with IN you are fine. Feeling/Thinking part is when it gets wrong, because they are not even polar to each other.

The worst combination (even through this test is soykafty as i mention above) is ENFJ and ESFJ, god help them, don't believe the kind words said about them in test, those people are living nightmare, found out it by myself when giving this test out to friends, beware of fuarrrking ENFJ and ESFJ.

INFJ. Not sure what to think on these things honestly. They get half of it right, but the other half I'm skeptical of. Same goes for the description of my zodiac sign (Virgo or goat/sheep/ram), although horoscopes I believe to be bs.

  No.576

>>575
horoscopes are written to contain characteristics that fit everyone, with language to make it seem like it's for you especially.
People who try to debunk horoscopes get it wrong because they look at what could make their horoscope incorrect. They'll definitely find something, but it's only because they're trying to debunk in the first place. If you really want to see how the zodiac works, check how many other signs you can fit yourself into.

MBTI's are quite different then horoscopes. They aren't based around arbitrary stars- they're based on how you rate your own traits.
However unlike Jung prophesied, they fail to archetype people into categories.
The best modern purpose they can serve is stating defined character aspects and sometimes helping you to further understand a little bit of your thought process.

  No.579

You aren't going to get a lot out of MBTI unless you study the functions and put some time into correctly typing yourself. After that you can find tons of objective articles on how you handle stress, how you learn, and tons of other helpful stuff for self development.

Online tests are a good place to start but there's a lot of mistyping because of soykafty questions.

I got ISTJ, not so bad

  No.600

I have done several of these tests, and I always get INTJ. The description fits me very well, and I tend to have a strong preference for movies with INTJ characters, like Hannibal in The Silence of the Lambs or Anton Chigurh on No Country for Old Men. Also, I tend to really like people who are either ENFP or ENTP, which are the best romantic matches for my type.

Overall I think MBTI is a pretty handy model. I have typed almost every person I'm close to over the years (although I find it tricky to decide between S and N), and it's amazing how much more predictable their behavior becomes once you figure their type out.

People always compare MBTI to horoscope, but I really don't believe it's such a superficial model.

Agreed. Read up on the Barnum effect. The MBTI is a horoscope for people who consider themselves above reading horoscopes -- perhaps even dumber than horoscopes, since you can't choose the month you were born in, but you CAN manipulate the MBTI to get the answer you want. I know many people who consider themselves introverts, but are in reality quite extroverted and love to overshare about themselves & be the centre of attention. They just don't get the chance to do so very often, so they pretend that it's due to their mysterious lone-wolf soul and not their social ineptitude.

>The MBTI is a horoscope
No, it's not. Go read Jung dude, it is psychology.
If you think it's not a science and is imprecise then I agree with you, because psyche can't really be described by reproducible tests as science require (at least with our current methods). Anyway, it's based on empiricism with many reviews of psychology, psychiatry, even neurology academia and is really useful in many areas.

The MBTI is not well regarded by actual psychologists. The National Academy of Sciences has ruled that "At this time there is not sufficient, well-designed research to justify the use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) in career counseling programs." (p15). http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=1580

Further detail:
"Myers and McCaulley (1985) report test-retest reliabilities from 11 different samples. In these samples, between 24 and 61 percent of the respondents showed stability of type, with a median of 40 percent... McCarley and Carskadon (1983) report only 47 percent of their respondents retained their initial types over a period of 5 weeks... Self-assessment instruments like those represented by the MBTI are likely, at best, to capture a person 's current state and, therefore, should not be considered typologies." (p96-97)

"Myers and McCaulley (1985) present correlational data from 20 studies showing relationships between MBTI scales and a wide variety of other instruments. They concluded that the I-E scale has good construct validity: it has high correlations with comparable scales of other instruments and low correlations with instruments designed to represent other constructs. In contrast, the S-N and T-F scales show relatively weak validity, with only moderate correlations with other instruments designed to measure similar constructs." (p98)

"[Thayer] notes three methodological criticisms of the research: the reporting of data is inconsistent and incomplete; statistical analyses are often incompletely described and may violate convention (e.g., no overall test of significance is calculated before detailed comparisons are made and no attention is given to appropriate baseline data in the analyses); and subjects or judges are often made aware of the hypotheses being tested. These problems prevent drawing conclusions from the studies, many of which are published in the Journals of the Center for the Applications of Psychological Type, Inc. (Journal of Psychological Type and Research in Psychological Type)*; we also note that, to date, few studies appear in mainstream research journals." (p88)
*This is the company that distributes the MBTI and sells training programs for it.

And, to further the comparison to horoscopes:
"What accounts for the popularity of an instrument that is not yet supported by research? Several reasons can be suggested. From the respondents' perspective, the MBTI provides generally positive feedback: the descriptors do not have clinical implications, they are presented as unique positive attributes, and they are sufficiently vague to apply to a large number of people in a wide variety of situations." (p100)

If you need a cute test to massage your ego, go take some "Which Kardashian Are You?" quizzes on Buzzfeed instead of pretending that you're doing Very Rational And Scientific Psychology. And Jung is cool, but what he does is not really science.

Just realized I got too carried away with the validity of the MBTI and didn't address the rest of your post. Yes, current scientific methods aren't great for studying psychology, but that doesn't mean we should gobble up any unsupported pseudo-psychology we can find. "it's based on empiricism with many reviews of psychology, psychiatry, even neurology academia and is really useful in areas"... this is not true. Better personality inventories exist, as well. The Big 5 system is far more reputable, but people don't like it as much as MBTI because it doesn't give you a fun label that you can compare to your favourite celebrities.

I generally score as INTP.

I believe it is a subset or specific application of trait theory.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trait_theory
From my experience, it seems most long, detailed posts about one's opinion of MBTI come from people who self-report as INT types. Other than that, haven't tried using it for much.

It's not particularly rigorous, but I don't think most people who show interest in the test actually treat is as such, or I would see people actually bring up their MBTI type in contexts other than MBTI threads as something useful in making decisions.

I think it'd be neat to have video games where systems like this are used to make procedurally generated personalities for NPCs.

Hipsters generally score/identify as introverts, but the main reason for that being the fact that tests regarding it generally suck. The 50/50 or any split that has two sides isn't wide enough for the reality.

Most people are between being an introvert and an extrovert - people who get alive around their friends, but are generally shy, people who sometimes self-reflect and automatically assume that pretty much nobody else does it because they don't understand people and so on. I scored ENTP, I think, but I would definitely not identify as an extrovert.

I don't actually think that this test is particularly awful, but it is nowhere near as close as advertised. The generally positive blanket statements aren't completely random, but similarly to horoscopes, they don't ultimately mean much.

Well, seems like a good time to retake that test, lets see...


The INTP personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there's nothing they'd be more unhappy about than being "common". INTPs pride themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, INTPs have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history.


I am still skeptical of the MBTI test.
Especially since I had to take that test at university a while back at some mandatory bullshit softskill course.
At that time it was ISTJ, now it's INTP.

I'd find it interesting how this whole system holds up over time, my money is more on the pseudoscience side than anything really. Still a good timewaster tough.

Jung was not a psychologist. There was no psychology before the behaviorists, maybe accepting a few earlier researchers as proto-psychologists.

But Jung/Freud are just writing fanfiction. There's no science there. It's not even wrong.

>because psyche can't really be described by reproducible tests


see, this is only true because you're using a word from your fanfiction, 'psyche', that conveniently DOESN'T map to anything that can be measured empirically because it doesn't exist.

But you can open any psychology journal and see empirical science. This goes from very rigorous, and very specific, on say perception studies, to very fuzzy and not very rigorous on the other, say case studies, organizational studies, or otherwise studies that are on the other end of the internal/external validity tradeoff. Psychology IS harder than virtually every other science, but that doesn't make it impossible, just hard. There are cognitive experiments that will break your mind, beautiful in their simple complexity, elegant in their destruction of swaths of possible explanations. Swinney 1972 is the one my favorite professor used at the end of his intro to cogsci class. And all for lexical ambiguity!

Seriously guys, just take the IPIP. Do you seriously need me to put it into a Google form or something for you lazy assholes? You score the Big-5 by adding your answers, that's fucking it.

>of course nobody will take a big-5 inventory and post it here

>"hey lains, I'm close-minded, scatterbrained, not strongly introverted or extroverted, disagreeable, and neurotic! The web page says I'm like Woody Allen!"

I hate the MBTI more than anything else. If I had a time machine and three bullets I would go straight to fucking Vienna and shoot Freud in the face so that we could be spared this shit. I'm 100% sure Watson and Skinner would have done good science without those fucking quacks.

INTJ here. I think the MBTI in itself is a pretty accurate method of describing your personality. There a few problems though. The MBTI tests you that you find in the Wired lack any kind of depth. Most of them will only ask about your actions but ignore your motives. The thing that makes the MBTI interesting and sets it apart from horoscopes are the function. Some may disagree but the MBTI is useless without the functions. INTJ and ISTJ would be almost identical, but they are almost the polar opposite. But if you are willing to learn about the MBTI its pretty useful for self-improvement and to get along better with other people.

INTP by a factor of greater than 80-20 percent in all fields, Assertive by 52-48.
Sounds about right; I spend my free time in my room, and my job and school in my head. I rarely ever talk to people outside of work, where I'm required to sell shit to customers. I had poor grades in high school but had the top standardized test scores the entire time, since I was too busy listening to music or learning on my own to do any actual school work. That said, however, this test doesn't necessarily bestow much actual "knowledge" in itself -- it's just a generalized label. I don't quite see a use for this beyond encouraging introspection. I guess that's a good thing, but hell that's a convoluted way to do it.

INTJ

A lot of people think that these tests aren't accurate, which may be true, but I think that they can get pretty close.
I originally took the test a year or so ago, and have taken it again every ~2 months since and have gotten INTJ 4/5 of the times.
I've looked into other websites focusing on the Myers Briggs test and all of them list qualities of the INTJ that I can directly identify with. My family and friends think that this type perfectly suits me as well.
I really enjoy having a personality type, it gives me a quick way to explain myself and reminds me that there are other people in the same boat as me.
Also, it's way better than that zodiac sign bullshit.

  No.2784

I don't like these tests because the questions are answered by me. The accuracy is thus bottlenecked by how well I know myself. When asked for example
>Do you usually stand in the middle of the room, or stick to the corners?
I might answer "HELL YEAH IN THE MIDDLE" because I remember this one occasion when I was tipsy and having a great time and I could seemingly entertain everyone, but otherwise, 99% of the time I'm that silent little anxiety-bag hiding in the corner.
Another point is that most people own't score 95%-100% on every attribute, and thus even though they are put into a category/archetype, it is obvious that they don't fit the description exactly.
While these two things certainly make me vary about the results, I don't need to scream Jung and pseudoscience to point this out, and neither should you.

16personalities test doesn't take the jungian cognitive functions into consideration with their test. I think that's important to point out.
https://www.16personalities.com/articles/our-theory
>Furthermore, unlike Myers-Briggs or other theories based on the Jungian model, we have not incorporated cognitive functions such as Extraverted Thinking or Introverted Sensing, or their prioritization, instead choosing five independent scales and building our types around them.

The functions is where things become more interesting imo, although I don't know a site that has a good test on them.

I guess I could wage slave this site though:
http://www.celebritytypes.com/
There's some free stuff there. Unfortunately some of things there you need an account for, which costs money.
I'd read the articles too. I think most people just look at how a certain celebrity is type and say "this site's bull soykaf ." Or at least that's what I did.

I think it's pretty meaningless, and taking it seriously is absolutely soykaf.

It just tells you some very basic information about someone (most likely yourself). Some of the information pertains to behaviour, but it's mostly about preference. The thing for me is that I don't see what I'm supposed to do with the information. If I take the test myself, it will already tell me what I essentially know. If I take it for someone close to me, I must know then well enough to reliably do that, that the result I get likely won't tell me anything new. I already know myself, and if I'm doing it for someone else, I need to know them.

Furthermore, there's much more to a person that what can be caught by this model. Two INTJ might be somewhat alike in personality, but preferences, experiences, interests, views and more will still mean that the two can be very different people. Knowing that someone is INTJ won't tell me any of that.

In addition to that, I highly doubt the accuracy of what little it tells you about a person.

For the record, I'm always INTJ/INTP. Sometimes INFJ. Not going to bother doing it again right now.

It's pretty useful if you work in human resources, being able to have a general guideline of how to communicate with people, keeping in mind that individuals are different of course, is invaluable.

I got INTP, which seems kind of appropriate, but misses the mark on a lot of aspects as well. I'm very far from systematic, cold, and unfeeling, and I don't like any STEM subjects. The heavy emphasis on positive traits is also kind of strange. I may think a lot but I don't exactly benefit from it.

It's a neat idea but not much more than a sophisticated personality quiz. It would be cool if they managed to narrow it down further someday.

I've taken this test once a day for the last three days and have gotten the same classification every time.

I feel that it is somewhat limited because of questions such as
>You often find yourself questioning the reason for the existence of humanity
which ignores the amount of faith people have in their religion.

I think that religious beliefs skew the results, as I often found myself not answering a full agree/disagree due to the answer being at odds with what I consider to be the values of Christianity, primarily ones concerning empathy and tolerance for others.

Though if I actually act on this in real life nothing changes from the test and the results should be theoretically accurate?

I guess what it doesn't really account for are liars.
