Ever since I took the test on 16Personalities (and it was really accurate and it still baffles me) I kinda became obsessed with this stuff. So it got me wondering: how do the folks of AVEN pan out across the types?

 

If you haven't taken the test, this link takes you directly to their home page, from there you can easily find the test. It will take a bit of your time though.

 

I'm an ISFP-A "The Adventurer" and, like I said, it was really accurate.

 

What's your "type"?

Do you think this test was accurate? If not, in what regard is it not?

ARE YOU ALSO OBSESSED WITH THIS STUFF?

 

 

*I should stress that all of your results should be taken with a pinch of salt. None of this should be considered as absolute truth.

There are approximately 2,387 existing threads on this topic, but I'm lazy so you'll have to find 'em yourself.

 

I'm likely INTP. I've tested as several other things over the years (mostly INTJ and sometimes INFP, rarely ISTJ), but if you get fully into the theories behind it, like Jungian cognitive functions and stuff, you can usually figure out your type more clearly. But yeah, I'm fairly certain I'm INTP. (And the turbulent/assertive thing is just some nonsense that one particular online test -- 16 Personalities -- tacks on to their formula, and it has nothing to do with MBTI whatsoever.)

None of this is real science though, and it's not recognised as having any true validity in psychology. It's best taken with a grain of salt. Fun and interesting, but not something to take too seriously. That said, I've been interested in personality analysis for many years. Borrowed my first book on MBTI from the public library when I was about eight or nine haha.

I like it a lot cause it got me really spot on and it's fun to read about, but yeah, I should stress that this is not to take as absolute... gotta edit that post yo!

Every time I take this test I get INFP, and this time was no exception (took it this time to see if I'm Assertive or Turbulent though). INFP-T here.

I've taken this test multiple times and I'm either an ESFP or an ENFP.  When I took the official Myers Briggs test in high school I was an INFP.  One year later I was an INFJ.  I feel like ESFP or ENFP fit me the the best however.

It's a classification that comes secondary to the main MBTI types, I believe. There's a page describing it here.

Mine actually changed since the last time I took it, which makes sense since I've changed a lot since then. I'm INFJ-A now, apparently.

If you take this test at different points in your life, you MAY find that you get a different type for yourself.

 

Bear in mind always that we are social beings and our 'typology' is strongly influenced by how we interact within a social structure such as relationships, a family, a group, a community, an institution.

 

In Other Words.... each of us do not reaaaallly have a type that is wholly independent our of preferred social structure (which is part of us!). ha

 

The first time I took this test, I was INTJ, when I was in a relationship with a highly introverted goal-oriented person.

Later I took it and retook it periodically and now Know that I am for myself an ENFP type.

 

My point is that each of us is highly influenced by our social interactions. And if you happen to be very influenced by OTHERS, then maybe your OWN type 'might' be different than what the test tells you.

 

As someone has said, this topic of personality type DISCUSSION THREAD comes up very very very VERY frequently on AVEN, so if you're really into the revelation that it brings to you personally... please search on what has been said about this.

 

Overall, it appears that AVENites claim to be mostly variations of INTROVERTED. .. ... .... which is what I take away from the typology as it's relevant to asexualities/AVEN.

 

But if you really find this method of self-description interesting/enlightening (which it IS!), then I highly recommend that you study astrology through an online course. Astrology is a thousand times more developed thant Myers-Briggs.  MB gives you 4 binary-pairs.

Astrology gives you 12x12x12 combinations. So do the math, Aces! <3.141592653589793238462643...

Supposedly your type does not change, but rather how you use it might change as you develop or as situations change.  It's common for the tertiary and inferior functions to become better developed as you mature, and then you might become more conscious of those functions than you were before, which can seem like changing type. 

 

Now that I've found sources to explain the functions and how it actually works, yeah, I'm in a phase of obsession.  

 

@euco Agreed about astrology being more detailed and individualized.

This describes me quite well. Even though I'm an INTJ, sometimes I'm able to masquerade as an INFJ if the situation requires - for instance, if someone needs emotional support. But all the while, it's just a mask. I'm simply reiterating what I've learned about how to behave in certain situations that an INTJ would otherwise bungle. Moreover, I might not be able to actually emphasize with someone as much as I'm expressing to them in the situation; I might not be able to fully grasp what they're feeling. I can't really sense other peoples' feelings like other types can. However, I can understand why the person is upset, and how this causes them to react the way they are. That, in turn, allows me to lend support. But I'm still INTJ.

It's very useful to consider what MBTI is used for in practice.

It's very often used to understand how one relates to others that have often quite different MTBI values.

 

I first became of aware of MBTI when I was a political activist. Someone recommended a book called "PLease Understand Me" which applied MBTI to helping people understand both Themselves and their Audience.

 

If you're an INTJ trying to get a point across, chances are you will fail, until you take into account what your audience's type is.

That's the topic of that book.

 

A lot of people including aces assume that everyone understand reality similar to how they do, when in fact this is totally wrong in most cases. On AVEN probably people are more similar to you than in other social settings. But if you want to try to dialogue with people who are really outside your comfort zone of processing reality, then it's very useful to develop your compassion by considering the other possible MBTI types that your audience could well be described as.

 

This is what MBTI is FOR. It's used in the work place in team dynamics, and it's fun to find out what your co-workers MTBI type is!

 

It's almost always NOT surprising! LOL!
 

And this realization within a work or other social dynamic team brings a lot of humor, and also acceptance of each person's way. :)

What?!!?! Myers-Briggs is a logic-based attempt at what I might consider armchair psychology. Fun, NOT to be taken very seriously at all, but at least rational in origin. Astrology is total and utter bullshit based on when your dad orgasmed inside your mum and the sperm and egg did what sperm and eggs sometimes do when they meet. And yes, I've done loads of reading on astrology. Why so many intelligent people believe in such nonsense has been something I've been curious about for a long time, and as someone who doesn't like to look foolish and ignorant, on the off-chance there's something to it, and with an open mind, I've searched out information on astrology numerous times. There's nothing that demonstrates it has any merit at all. Science regards astrology as BS.

The test tells me I'm a Debater or an ENTP-A. I just read Debater and I didn't think it really fit but I read the explanation (after voting above) and I realized it does fit me pretty well. Maybe not an exact fit but still super accurate. It's cool

MBTI, also known as the non-scientific personality test, which somehow is still popular and has no support in academic circles. At least doing these tests can sometimes be fun and they're better than horoscopes:P. But maybe if we'd start to use proper tests?

I am an archetypal INFP.  Although apparently in recent times I have become more rational. I am passionate about introspection. I analyze my feelings and the feelings of others constantly.

I have always gotten INTP, when I've taken it before, and it seems accurate... but what was that turbulent/assertive thing about? Is there also a test for that, or should the results of the personality test show those tendencies as well? (I didn't re-take that test, I feel like I've taken it before, but should I? :o ) I picked "assertive" out of wishful thinking, but "turbulent" kind of sounds like me as well...

 

EDIT: I took it, got INTP again, but apparently I'm 60% turbulent. oops.

 I'm INFJ-A. It's pretty darn accurate! A lot of my friends are in the "Diplomat" class too, including my brother. I really like to to look around the 16 Personalities site and read about all the different types.

I've taken this test so many times, got different results (INTP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ). I'm starting to think it all depends on how I'm feeling at a certain point in my life. At least I got Introversion and Intuition down.
