INTJ(-T?), which someone assigned me before. I don't really recognise myself in the description though, idk if INTP would be more accurate

I got ISTJ for this when I took it in college. My comp sci professor lived and died by this thing - but I think he was stuck in the corporate tendencies of the '80s. This test is practically useless.

I am an active member of a number of Myers-Briggs typology communities so I wanted to contribute something of value to this thread. My last significant other of the past two years was also a psychology specialist in the fields of Myers-Briggs and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter and we spend countless exhaustive hours exploring the Cognitive Functions and aspects of the Jungian archetypes in our lives and the lives of those around us.

There are a few stubbornly persistent themes which surface regularly within all of these groups. The first is the recurring naysayer threads linking to poorly-written articles like, "17 Facts That Prove Myers-Briggs Is Actually Meaningless" and "Why the Myers-Briggs Test Is Totally Meaningless." These are quickly debunked and dismissed as they fail to examine Myers-Briggs in the proper context.

Another recurring theme is the 16 Personalities website. While it is the most popular version of the test, 16personalities doesn't really look into cognitive functions, and instead uses The Big Five, thus why it has an - A or -T in the end. This suffix is absolutely meaningless in psychological circles and the site is widely regarded as the least-accurate of all Myers-Briggs evaluators.

The official MBTI website test is the best, but it is not free. Those willing to invest can take the Instrument here:

But for the best free online test, the consensus among all of the Myers-Briggs communities I engage is the following:
Personality test based on Jung and Briggs Myers typology

But most importantly, once you've taken the HumanMetrics test, you should explore this detailed article from Thought Catalog on How Each Cognitive Function Manifests Based On Its Position In Your Stacking:

That will provide you the keenest insight into your results.

I always score as a strong INTJ and have compiled all notes and analyses of my results into a document I keep on hand for regular reference. It's been most helpful in my professional and interpersonal relationship dynamics.

I hope this info helps those curious to explore Myers-Briggs for the first time.

I don't know, ISB. It seems ribbons, one of our nicest posters (and they're pretty rare around here) put this thread together as a bit of fun and interest, and what you've done - which I am quite sure is not intentional - is to take her idea apart in, I have to say, quite a condescending and superior way. The takeaway from your post is "I know more about this than you". That's almost certainly true, from what you say, but I don't think it gives you the right to talk down to the lady. Again, I'm sure you don't realise you're doing this, but to me you are, and I think a small apology or confirmation that this was not your intention would not go amiss, as if I were her now I would feel pretty small. Well, maybe she is small, I don't know, but you know what they say about the best things...

Anyhow, she's probably going to be embarrassed and annoyed at me for White Knighting her, but I think her original intention should be acknowledged, not academicised (?) out of sight. Just my two small coins of the same value. I'm not actually interested in these tests, but it seems you are being a little harsh on her.

Oh my! Trollheart, thank you so much for bringing that to my attention! That in no way was my intent! I was only trying to offer helpful information for those interested in MBTI. Please forgive me, ribbons - I in no way intended anything negative with my contribution to the thread. I appreciate your introducing the topic and will make every effort to be more mindful of how I present information and more conscious of my tone when I speak.

I understand that, now and again, I unintentionally come across as harsh or cold. (That is unfortunately a common side effect of being an INTJ.) and that is in no way a reflection on ribbons.

I am so, so sorry, ribbons! Please forgive my ignorance!
