    This test is based on Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers typological approach to personality. When answering questions, please choose one of two possible answers you agree the most. If you are not sure how to answer then the decision should be based on your most typical reaction or feeling in the given situation. Respond to all questions to get a reliable result. Press "Score It" button after you are done answering the questions. Upon completion, you will obtain online:
    • Your type formula according to Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers typology along with the strengths of the preferences
    • The description of your personality type
    • The list of occupations and educational institutions where you can get relevant degree or training, most suitable for your personality type.
    Please press "Do It!" button to start. ---------------------- The Mechanic As an ISTP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. ISTPs have a compelling drive to understand the way things work. They're good at logical analysis, and like to use it on practical concerns. They typically have strong powers of reasoning, although they're not interested in theories or concepts unless they can see a practical application. They like to take things apart and see the way they work. ISTPs have an adventuresome spirit. They are attracted to motorcycles, airplanes, sky diving, surfing, etc. They thrive on action, and are usually fearless. ISTPs are fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make their own decisions about their next step. They do not believe in or follow rules and regulations, as this would prohibit their ability to "do their own thing". Their sense of adventure and desire for constant action makes ISTPs prone to becoming bored rather quickly. ISTPs are loyal to their causes and beliefs, and are firm believers that people should be treated with equity and fairness. Although they do not respect the rules of the "System", they follow their own rules and guidelines for behavior faithfully. They will not take part in something which violates their personal laws. ISTPs are extremely loyal and faithful to their "brothers". http://www.personalitypage.com/ISTP.html

    Quite impressing: According to the test my idealist is to be a teacher (ENFJ)!
    I teach students, but it's not all the time and not at school. A full time teacher would be too much for me, though.

    I didn´t want to come to MDL for some time,but in the mean time I was forced against my will to come here again because of this incredible sentence of you YEN :eek:
    "YENs words" OMG I have got the same type than half Man Half Biscuit!!!
    At first i was beyond pissed to be honest with you Sir,but after some thinking time maybe it aint that bad at all :D
    This is how i look at everything after your shocking statement Yen(maybe i´m mistaking not sure 100% but i don´t think so).

    If your the same TYPE as me ENFJ and your MDL admin,is there a possibility that i become a Admin too? (cough cough instead of ancestor(v))
    We would like each other (i know you like me already) because we are the same TYPE.We think,feel,breath and would prevail the same way,there wouldn´t be conflicts between us.There wouldn´t be Democracy,there would be dictatorship only :eek:

    If you watched the results CAREFULLY Yen,you have probably noticed that we only have in FEELINGS the same percentage,the rest i´m much better then you Sir :eek:
    The most shocking thing is your JUDGING is poor,only 1% :eek:
    So i came to the conclusion that you YEN are getting old for such a job (Admin),you need somebody like me.
    Same TYPE,much younger,better Judging.
    Yen teach me the secrets of being a Admin,like Obi-Wan Kenobi teached Anakin Skywalker of becoming a YEDI MASTER :)eek: as far as i remember it didn´t go the right way).

    All in all we (Yen + half Man Half Biscuit) are the SAME,you can run but you can´t hide from the truth ;)

    At this point i have to stop writing my hands hurt now :(


    P.S. I have MUCH more to say,but that will be said in the near future :D

    An old flame never dies. Or does it, Mr. Half Man Half Biscuit? ;)
    But I think I can tolerate a rival as long as he doesn't get too defiant :D

    On topic:
    I'd be interested to see what other members score in this test. This is why I put it to Serious Discussion. Despite not really "believing" in those tests, somehow it seems to be accurate. How do others feel about this?

    I knew that you HMHB would reply to my post. Actually I have chosen my words that you probably will, it was with intent.:D
    And I put a smiley to it, to say that it's funny.

    I wanted to study psychology, actually I did it a bit at home. And I thought a lot about Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung (2 very different psychologists).
    I ever had favoured Carl Gustav Jung and this test seems to be based on him.

    What I want to say:
    High percentages doesn't mean positive attributes!!!


    Jung differentiates 3 pairs of attributes, which are contrary.(means either or)

    Extraversion - Introversion
    Sensing - Intuition
    Thinking - Feeling

    and Mrs. Myers added the pair

    Judging - Perceiving


    The 4 letters code is built by using a letter of the attribute which prevails.
    A high amount of percent says how much you rely on the one side of the pair (attribute).

    First (example)

    Of course one is either extroverted or introverted. People who get the letter E are special personalities and they let everybody know about. They don't fit into common things, lol.


    A high amount of percentage means to lose the other part of the pair. To be highly extroverted can be hard, especially if you have to work in a team, for instance.

    I could name a lot more examples.

    A person who has a great variety of attributes has low percentages everywhere.
    12% feeling doesn't mean you have problems with your feelings. It means compared to thinking you tend to 12% to feeling instead of thinking.

    To remain unbiased and sovereign a low percentage everywhere is an advantage.

    To be a strong character can be interesting, but also hard.

    So we both are ENFJ, my highest percentage is 25% iNtuition. That is right! I can do things and I know they are right, but there is no rational explanation. I just live in the present and let it flow.
    But it doesn't work that way all the time. At some days I simply have no intuition.

    HMHB I guess if we would meet in real life we could be good friends with a lot of fun. All of my friends are in some way special, I never went with the mainstream, it's my destiny.:biggrin:

    I don't know if ENFJ type is suitable for an admin, but it seems suitable for an US president. I am doing my job some years already. I have a lot of fun and MDL has become a great community.
    There is no special way to be admin, I just try to be myself.

    May the Force be with you, HMHB :yoda:

    I agree with Mr Yen.Psychological Types is the title of the sixth volume in the Princeton / Bollingen edition of the Collected Works of Carl Jung. In the book Jung categorized people into primary types of psychological function.

    Jung proposed four main functions of consciousness:

    * Two perceiving functions: Sensation and Intuition
    * Two judging functions: Thinking and Feeling

    The functions are modified by two main attitude types: extroversion and introversion. Jung theorized that the dominant function characterizes consciousness, while its opposite is repressed and characterizes unconscious behavior. There are eight psychological types....

    In Psychological Types, Jung describes in detail the effects of tensions between the complexes associated with the dominant and inferior differentiating functions in highly and even extremely one-sided types.

    "Psychoanalytic theories explain human behavior in terms of the interaction of various components of personality. Sigmund Freud was the founder of this school. Freud drew on the physics of his day (thermodynamics) to coin the term psycho-dynamics. Based on the idea of converting heat into mechanical energy, he proposed psychic energy could be converted into behavior. Freud's theory places central importance on dynamic, unconscious psychological conflicts.

    The channeling and release of sexual (libidal) and aggressive energies, which ensues from the "Eros" (sex; instinctual self-preservation) and "Thanatos" (death; instinctual self-annihilation) drives respectively, are major components of his theory. It is important to note that Freud's broad understanding of sexuality included all kinds of pleasurable feelings experienced by the human body.

    Freud proposed five psychosexual stages of personality development. He believed adult personality is dependent upon early childhood experiences and largely determined by age five. Fixations that develop during the Infantile stage contribute to adult personality and behavior.

    One of Sigmund Freud's earlier associates, Alfred Adler, did agree with Freud early childhood experiences are important to development, and believed birth order may influence personality development. Adler believed the oldest was the one that set high goals to achieve to get the attention they lost back when the younger siblings were born. He believed the middle children were competitive and ambitious possibly so they are able to surpass the first-born's achievements, but were not as much concerned about the glory. Also he believed the last born would be more dependent and sociable but be the baby. He also believed that the only child loves being the center of attention and matures quickly, but in the end fails to become independent."

    Critics of personality theory claim personality is "plastic" across time, places, moods, and situations. Changes in personality may indeed result from diet (or lack thereof), medical effects, significant events, or learning. However, most personality theories emphasize stability over fluctuation. The definition of personality that is most widely supported to date is attributed to the neurologist Paul Roe. He stated personality to be "an individual's predisposition to think certain patterns of thought, and therefore engage in certain patterns of behaviour".

    There are many personality theories, see here:

    @sid_16

    Yeah, that sounds familiar, when I was 20 I was very interested in that matter.

    But I overestimated science generally. (I may say that, I am a scientist).

    Psychology is even more ‘special’. One (the psychologist) tries to examine the psyche of another person.
    But he has a problem, he can do this only with his own psyche.

    Also when developing own theories, you need to define terms. Then you categorize reactions and try to find the term which matches most.
    Actually you stigmatize.

    Words are crude and limited, terms and definitions even more.
    I have a low opinion on western psychology and their psychologists.
    Most are not able to find the reason for a psychological problem / disturbance. They only treat the symptoms by administering psychotropic drugs.

    Also I have a low opinion on Freud. IMHO he had a own problem with his sexuality and that led him to cocaine abuse. Freud was not able to live a ordinary life and so he thought he needs to develop a theory (to distract himself of own problems).
    He projected his own problems onto others. To categorize them he developed his psycho analysis.
    It actually was nothing than a self-therapy.



    But such tests are quite interesting. They can show you what you already know, they entertain you.

    IMHO your best psychologist is always your best friend.

    One last word to the psychologists who work for the government, or the police.

    IMHO the psychologists who don’t get a job on their own, because their graduation was worse, find finally an employment at the government.

    A story. When I was 23 I got caught by the police with a joint.
    I had to go (order) to a psychologist. They wanted to prove that my cognition and personality is not suitable to drive a car anymore.
    They really wanted that I lose my driver’s license. The psychologist tried to stigmatize me. She was a kind of stupid, though. :biggrin:
    She asked me a lot of questions she had learned to ask when studying psychology.
    Q: What do you feel when you smoke a joint?
    Yen: The same as you would feel if you smoke one.
    (Always answer like a mirror and the psychologist drives mad, hehehe.) :D

    Finally she could not ‘prove’ that I am unable to drive a car.
    How sick is that?
    The government thought I have a psychological problem (because I have smoked a joint).
    Then they instruct a psychologist to prove that I am sick and that they are right!

    So they know me better than I know myself.
