    Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test

    Since we're all just starting to get to know each other, I'm wondering what results you guys get when taking this test. I am ISFP: Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving, often known as the Artist or the Composer. Tell us what you get, and perhaps do a little Google search when you're done and find a good description of your personality.

    Here are some descriptions of my personality type:

    Summary

    General Description
    • Most misunderstood of all.
    • Tendency not to express themselves directly, but through action.
    • Does not plan and prepare.
    • Special kind of intelligence.
    • Kindest of all the types.
    • Sometimes seen by others as reserved and private.
    • Instinctive longing for the natural, the pastoral, the bucolic.
    • Easily bored, wanting excitement, risk, chance and tests of luck.
    • Spender rather than a saver.
    • Likely to become a pacifist or environmentalist.

    • Very compassionate towards those who are needy.
    • Will consider various options/possibilities.


    Weaknesses

    • Will avoid tasks or projects until late in the process and put things off.
    • Finds it difficult to express opinions strongly.


    Details

    The ISFP personality can seem aloof due to their quiet nature. However, they are one of the most caring of personality types. When they first meet people, they may have difficulty in establishing quick bonds. To some, ISFPs can seem slightly eccentric in their pursuits and motivations. In truth, they are often simply following an internal set of ideals, generated from within and kept private from others. Many ISFPs are driven by what they sense around them, often at the cost of sacrificing what other people may consider pragmatic. When people get to know them, they're usually well-liked as they exude an uncommon level of compassion and empathy for people.

    The ISFP type is private nearly to a fault. They have a tendency to avoid sharing their ideas and thoughts with others. Most people consider them to be composed, even in circumstances that imply a confrontation. In fact, ISFPs rarely express themselves through anger. They feel everything from within and can be sensitive to what others say or do. They seldom speak with strangers because they're reserved; that quality can make them seem standoffish and even unapproachable, despite their innately caring personality. ISFP personality types are apt to develop a strong set of values based upon their feelings. While they won't typically communicate these values, their actions are usually consistent with them.

    People with the ISFP personality experience the world through their senses. While others may conceptualize ideas and events, ISFPs have a natural propensity for absorbing what their eyes, ear, nose, mouth and skin tell them and taking action based upon those impressions. They have an appreciate for the arts that rivals that of most other personality types. People with the ISFP trait can almost feel the artistic creations of others due to their intense awareness and sensory input. They're most comfortable when they are applying their ideas by actually doing something instead of spending time in conjecture.

    ISFPs run the risk of alienating those who are not close to them. However, it is through no direct intention on their part; rather, it's a result of their tendency to remain private and reserved. They also tend to drive themselves toward perfection. This is likely due to a strict adherence to their values. Unfortunately, this hunt for personal perfection can potentially sabotage their own efforts and productivity. Also, ISFP types who use their intuition may find themselves arriving at the wrong conclusions. Because they're prone to taking action, this can cause problems. However, despite their inherent flaws, ISFPs make devoted friends, lovers and companions.

    ISFPs are extremely perceptive and aware of others. They constantly gather specific information about people, and seek to discover what it means. They are usually penetratingly accurate in their perceptions of others and show intuition, which comes from information that is gathered internally. Rather than relying upon tangible evidence to draw conclusions, they'll often begin forming connections based upon their own hunches or feelings.


    A shorter, tl;dr version...

    ISFPs are difficult to know "as they really are" due to their quiet, reserved nature. Their reserve can cause others who do not know them well, to think that they are aloof or not interested in others. But those who are blessed to have an ISFP for a close friend find them to be generous with their time, their talents and their goods. They are truly characterized as loyal helpers.

    As with the other SPs, ISFPs don't really like "do and don't" regimens. While not especially rebellious, they nonetheless value independence and the ability to enjoy their interests in an unfettered way. This makes the regimens of education and the SJ classroom structure laborious for them and will, therefore, not be found in great numbers among those in higher education. Large numbers of them, in fact, quit high school. They prefer to learn by DOING!

    As ISFPs are focused on enjoying the present moment, they may appear lazy or slow-moving at times. Out of all personality types, ISFPs are definitely the most spontaneous and the ones who utilize free-will the most. There is an abundance of ISFPs in acting, and they quite excel at it; but they won’t have much to say for themselves when it is all over. ISFPs feed a need for the feeling of constant satisfaction, highly motivated by reward and addiction centers in the brain.

    [hr]

    I wouldn't expect you to spend the twenty minutes I've spent gathering information. But I do like learning about people, so be sure to post a few details about your personality type. You might find your result surprisingly accurate.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    ISTP.

    It's accurate enough.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    Since the cluttered wiki page is hurting my eyes as I've just woken up, I consulted El Google, and figured this summed it up. http://www.personalitypage.com/ISTP.html I'd agree, too. It's pretty accurate. Maybe except the last sentence.

    RE: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test

    I got an ESTJ . I really liked the description of it, think it sums me up really well.
    http://www.personalitypage.com/html/ESTJ.html
    Basically it says I do what the law tells me to and it says I think the law is always right.
    This is my signature, isn't it great?

    RE: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test

    Seeing as I found the 'main' page for ISTP so intriguing, I had to look at the related pages too:

    I laughed so hard at some of this.

    Example:
    "ISTPs will enjoy spending one-on-one time with their children pursuing outdoorsy activities, such as fishing, boating, hunting, etc. It is during these private moments that the ISTP will take the opportunity to get to know their children's perspectives, and to pass on the ISTP's interests and perspectives. "

    Little Hitlers. (I am only expecting Mantis to understand this one.)

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    XD every-time I saw the word ISTP I just replaced it with Baron. Think the most I got out of reading that was the part of you being able to administer punishment.

    RE: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test

    D:!

    Edit:
    Not sure why I only posted that, must be spamming it too much on MSN. Anyway...

    Valid enough conclusion. I'd probably make a 'terrible' father anyway; I really can't stand screaming kids (that ****ing noise!), and I probably wouldn't be able to stop myself from belting my son if he started mouthing off like a smartass.

    THEN I'd give the verbal humiliation.

    ...Oh no, my children are going to hate me.

    Sounds like you probably put a lot more effort into your school work than I do, which is a trait I wish I possessed right now.
