This is Thread #5 for all FReepers who took the Jung Typology Test,
also known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) personality test.
A special thanks to the people who offered their HTML expertise on the other thread. Some of them took some
significant time out of their day to help, and I really appreciate it. I couldn't have posted this without their help!

Jung Personality Test ^ | February 23, 2006 | Alamo-Girl
Would you like to learn a little more about yourself and your fellow posters on Free Republic? If so, you might enjoy this Freeper Research Project. It began on another thread where people were testing themselves for nerdiness. Great fun was had by all. Along the way, Freeper patton posted a link to the Jung personality test. What an adventure! I took the test for the first time and found out I am an INFJ (I=44, N=75, F=25, J=25). Because we were sharing the results of our tests on that thread, I was pleasantly surprised to discover three other...

I Missed It. What Is This Thread About?!
FReepers have been taking an online personality questionnaire to determine which one of 16 possible personality types we are. The Jung Typology Test has been around for years and is well-documented in the research literature. The general consensus among the FReepers seemed to be that, in most cases, it was eerily accurate. Like many of you, I took the MBTI instrument almost 20 years ago and got the same results then as I did now.
We've updated the tables to include everyone who responded. Hopefully no one was left out, but if you were, please accept my humble apologies in advance! As in the previous threads, occupations and career paths are listed under each personality type without reference to FReeper handles. Great care has been taken to preserve your anonymity in that regard. Also, I started grouping similar occupations into categories for easier reference (e.g., Military, Educator, Business owner, etc.) but quickly discovered how easily I could misinterpret what someone meant, so I backed off that ambitious endeavor rather quickly. For one thing, I feared offending someone if I moved you to the wrong category. (Example: Does "Software Engineer" belong under Engineer, or should it go under Computers?) Maybe sometime in the future we could do this as a collective effort. With my limited knowledge I'm just not comfortable doing it alone. Suggestions for future categories are welcomed!
Alamo-Girl and I (iNFj and iNTp, respectively) give our thanks to all of you who participated in this project. By my last count, there were 538 participants. It was thought-provoking, stimulating, and FUN, all at the same time. We hope you enjoyed it, too! (Go to TABLES.)

And just so I won't be all alone in my "conflictions," the Conflicting Pairs are in the column at left.
For the other side of the compatibility coin, go to the Socionics soulmates page to read about the pairs that are the Relations of Duality (listed at right). Oh, now this was interesting! Dual partners "are like two halves of a whole unit. They usually understand each others intentions without any need to say a word..." [Call me skeptical. Is this even possible?!] It goes on to say, "Conflicts between Duals are very rare and if there are any, they are normally short lived and solved without pain."

Thanks to everyone for contributing to this research project - and special thanks to all of you who helped in the html formatting.
Thank you, Alamo-Girl.
Now explain it to us, okay - what it all means and the ramifications and everything. After all, you're a counselor!
everything looks good to me and im in very good company on the list :-)
Looks great - thanks!
Wow.....absolutely "above and beyond" performance!!
Looks great from here!
You are amazing! I remember taking the test; I was the same as you,(Counselor)? Can't find my name? Maybe I flunked?
Yowza! That's a lot of work!
It is very interesting and impressive. Thank you Alamo-Girl.
What an outstanding job!
Thanks to all who gave of their time.
Next time I run across someone who wants to dispute, argue or insult, I'm going to look up his/her personality type to see if there's a trend. LOL
Thank you and all who worked on this interesting project! May it bear much FRuit! (;
Thank you for your hard work.
Thank you, Alamo-Girl, et al.
David, King of Israel
I'm with good company. :)
Man oh man...how did I miss this?
No matter though, I took this a couple years ago and was a ISTJ.
Thanks.... It looks really good now.
Did I read this correctly? That of the 538 participants, the single largest group (191)--and it was larger by a fair margin over all the other groups -- scored as INTJs?
Here's the story on INTJs from the MTBI people: 2.1% of the adults in the US are INTJs. "They like to solve complex problems through generating new ideas and concepts and developing logical solutions. They enjoy intellectual challenges and are good at creating new systems and with conducting technical analysis. INTJs like learning new ideas, are very independent and focused and question and challenge ideas before accepting them. They are skilled at strategic planning and at implementing their plan." [See http://www.coscc.cc.tn.us/careerservices/MBTI%20Types/INTJ.htm]
So, here's the interesting question. INTJs are uncommon in the population to begin with, and a strong plurality of the poll participants identified as INTJ. Why would that be? Is there any comparable data for DUers, or Daily Kos? What a fascinating comparison that would be...
How very interesting! Thank you for your hard work!!

Wow, Alamo-Girl...What work...What Organization!
Thanks so much.
What a great job!
Thanks to you and your "crew" for all your hard work!

eyespysomething is still listed as an entp. I think she is in fact an entj. I remember this because somewhere I read that intjs (of which I am one) and entjs are incompatible, and therefore I have decided there is nothing for it but to divorce her.
eyespy ... maybe this isn't the best way to hear about it, but my lawyer will be bringing by some papers for you to sign. Please don't read those papers, just sign them.
Must mean INTJs are exceptionally smart people.
(or maybe they just like expressing their opinions and can't find anyone in the real world to listen to them ...)
eNTp 11 38 12 44
They're right. Quit trying to make me what I'm not, sittinyonder!
All my data is correct.
I see someone made the list for ESTP. All by their lonesome.
Some of the other catagories only had a few people in them.
A bell shaped curve, for sure.
More Masterminds than anything.
Very interesting results.
Ah ... you are an ENTP, but you're going around claiming to be an ENTJ based on the profile:
I'm ENTJ also. Reading the profile of the type, it fits me fairly well.

Quit trying to be something you're not. I'll let you know if I'm still divorcing you.
OK, that does it, I'm taking the test over again.
Quit sneaking around reading my posts, lol. I may be talking about you.
That's why I sneak around reading your posts ...
I am actually not ENTP, but ISTJ. Years ago, I tested as ENTP, but my recent test put me as an ISTJ. :) Right now I'm appearing on both lists. It's fine though. I think some of us go through personality transformations in life. :) Thanks for compiling this!
Now I just need a list of available female ENFJs to aid in my soulmate search.
Just took the test, INTJ (78-50-25-100) here too.
I took a test in high school that tagged me as intuitive introvert, so that seems to have remained the case.
That is interesting about the high number of INTJ at FR.
I wonder if what that says about conservatives, computer/internet users, and/or people who like to post in internet forums? ;^)
If you want to know occupation, just FReepmail me, A-G.
Great work! However, I don't know whether to be depressed that my INTJ type is over-represented in FReepers (I thought I was special), or happy that there are so many who think the way I do.
The description about INTJ types thinking in terms of systems and wanting people to 'make sense' is right on for me. I use systems analysis in my research and an overarching assumption I have is that people don't make sense, they screw up, and how this lack of sense is manifested in organizations.
I do have good social skills, tho. But then, I'm not a comp sci major or an engineer. : )
Bloody hell. I wish I had known about this; I would have participated.
It means that someone has completed a system of Aristotelian classification that appears to include all of us. That seems odd since there are some FReepers who appear to be unique unto themselves and not part of any system.
I just took this test. ENFJ.
Thank you both for all the hard work which went into this interesting and worthwhile project. I truly feel part of a larger community by being among those who responded to this survey. FR's the best.
According to the literature I found, it appears to be a computer thing.
This is just one of several research articles that basically say the same thing: On the average, Intuitives (NT & NF) seem to prefer (embrace, feel comfortable in, enjoy, etc.) the online environment more than the Sensory (ST & SF) types.
Personality Indicators and Emergency Permit Teachers' Willingness to Embrace Technology
Authors: Chambers, Sharon M., Hardy, James C., Smith, Brenda J., Sienty, Sarah F.
Journal of Instructional Psychology, Sep2003, Vol. 30, Issue 3
As a result of innovative technologies designed to enhance learning, today's teachers must learn to incorporate the newer technologies into instructional strategies. The present study examined the impact of certain personality types and secondary education teachers' inclination to use technology. A sample of 200 Emergency Permit teachers were surveyed using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and a questionnaire designed to determine willingness to use technology. A one-way ANOVA test was applied to group means. Findings indicate that intuitive/thinking types of personalities were more likely to use technology in teaching while the sensory/feeling types were the least likely.
Significant differences were found in technology acceptance mean scores between the following Myers-Briggs Types: Intuitive/Feeling (NF) and Sensory/Feeling (SF); Intuitive Thinking (NT) and Sensory/ Feeling (SF); and Intuitive/Thinking (NT) and Sensory/Thinking (ST).
Select descriptive statistics of technology scores for each Myers-Briggs type group are provided in Table 3. Larger numbers reflect greater technology acceptance. Program participants classified as Intuitive (both NT & NF) were more receptive to the use of technology than Sensory (ST & SF) types.
The present study is congruent with research on type-indicators conducted by Grindler & Straton (1990) and Smith, Munday & Windham (1995). Secondary teachers identified as Intuitive/Thinking are more receptive to the use of technology than the Sensory types. Teachers labeled Sensory/Feeling were least likely to be comfortable with technology.
It is recommended that teacher education programs consider personality factors when designing technology related curricula. Individualizing instructional techniques to best meet identified preferences and styles is suggested.
For effective training, educators need to design programs for pre- and in-service teachers that include descriptions of how different personalities can best use technology with diverse students. Those individuals more inclined to use technology may be identified to work in interdisciplinary teams with others who are less inclined to use the newer technologies. Identification with individualized instruction may successfully reduce anxieties often experienced by some novice teachers.
Thanks again for doing this! : )
Thank you. (Alamo-Girl did most of the work. I just helped by putting her data into table format. And I had to have help with that from others. :)
This may depend on your current age and your age when you originally took the test. This personality typing system is based on the 8 functions developed by Carl Jung. Everybody uses the same 8 functions, but in different orders and varying degrees of development. But as life progresses and hopefully we mature, we eventually start being more well-rounded, and using our less "natural" functions.
The functions of the typical ENTP are in this order:
The functions of an ISTJ are in this order:
Other than the You probably know enough about yourself to know you're more a Thinker than a Feeler, but other life changes and function development could easily have you answering as a Sensate when you're an Intuitive (because you may be actively using that function now).
It may help to think back on childhood. An imaginative child or a reality-based child? A "responsible" child or a "head in the clouds" child? As an adult, a detail-oriented "inspector" or an "inventor"? As a child, an introvert or an extravert?
