Meyers Brigg

I was trying to figure out which Meyers Brigg personality I am because I'm always reading about people talking about their "type" and I don't remember mine. I know I took the test in college and I can't remember which type I was - I know it was I (Introverted) and J (Judging) but I can't remember which way I swung when it came to the other two. So I could be 4 different types. Online I can't find the official test, but I took some quizzes, and one says I'm INTJ and the other says I'm ISTJ. One of them says I'm totally I and totally J but almost neutral when it comes to the N vs S and T vs F. No wonder I am messed up - I can't even pick a Meyers Brigg type. I've read the description of all 4 types I could be, and parts of each one sound like me, and parts don't, even though they all contradict each other. I remember taking the test in high school also (although it could have been a different test) and I only remember it suggested being a florist was my idea career. Great. And I think a funeral director.

So are there people that don't fit into one personality type? According to wikipedia INTJ is the second most rare after INFJ, and I never meet anyone like me, so I must be one of the rare ones (which would explain why everyone thinks I'm weird).

What type are you?


Update: I made my boyfriend take the tests and he's a ESFJ. Just writing it down here so I don't forget.

I was INFJ the last time I took the test, but I want to take it again because I think I may be more INFP now. Your type can change over time--you usually don't stay one forever.

I was going to take more of the tests because according to them I'm split almost 50/50 between INTJ and yours, along with the ISTJ. Somewhere I read they think your first test is accurate for life because it reflects your true personality more than taking it later in life, where you will have learned more things that could skew your results. But of course it also makes sense that your type would change over time as you change, based on life experience, which could alter your personality.

INTZ - the strategist. It is also called the INTJ. I guess we're alike in that manner :)

I took the test on the College Board website when I was helping students sign up for the My Road site.

We are the same! Apparently only 1% of women are this type. I was reading somewhere people with the same type seem to gravitate toward each other.
