Everybody's Doing It

Everybody on Live Journal has been taking an online version of the Kiersey MTBI Personality Test. So I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a spin, see what I come up with.

The results were:
ENFJ- The Teacher
You scored 90% I to E, 31% N to S, 33% F to T, and 42% J to P!
Your type is known as the teacher, or the educating mentor. You also belong to the larger group, called idealists. You tend to bring out the best in other people. You lead without seeming to do so. People are naturally drawn to you. You expect the very best from people which takes the form of enthusiastic encouragement which is so charming that people try their best not to disappoint you. You share your personality type with 3% of the population.

You need to feel a deep and meaningful connection to your romantic partners, and go to great lengths to understand and please your mate. Harmony is vitally important to you, and you often put others' needs before your own. You have a pretty thin skin and are easily hurt. Although you strive for harmony, when your values or ethics are violated, you can be very emotional, confrontational, and even punishing. However, you are very insightful about the underlying cause of conflicts, and an excellent communicator, so you have the tools to bring about a quick and peaceful resolution as long as you can keep control of your facilities. You want to be appreciated for your thoughtfulness and compassion. You need your partner to make a real effort to get to know you. Above all, you need to be able to express your feelings and have them taken seriously.

Your group summary: idealists (NF)

Your type summary: ENFJ

As per usual, on at least a third of the questions, I could've gone either way. Maybe others fit better into these categories, but for me it's so situational. At work I'm one person and at home I'm another. And at events I'm organizing I'm totally different from the person I am at events I'm just attending. So call it my 'Gemini' nature or what you will, but while this is one aspect of my personality, parts of my personality are flexible or changeable depending on the scenario.


  • Myers Briggs Personality Indicator test is not quite as old as I am. My parents administered the test to me when I was in grade school.

    I have changed somewhat since then but I am still an E/INFP.

  • I also could go either way on many of the questions which led me to ISTJ - The Inspector, which just doesn't seem quite right.
