I'm an ENFP. Unless I'm an ENTP.

I reject the T/F scale. Nobody can classify me, therefore, I refuse to use it.

We could discuss the practicality of the test, or its usefullness or effectiveness, but...

I was really just kind of wondering what all of you were, and couldn't find a thread more recent than 2002. [Smile]

To be honest, I find the StrengthsFinder more useful than Myers-Briggs. My strengths: Input, Command, Communication, Activator, and Woo.

I posted in that original thread. Almost seven years ago. Wow.

Since then I've gone from being an INTJ to an INFJ. Interesting.

Champions are rather rare, say three or four percent of the population, but even more than the others they consider intense emotional experiences as being vital to a full life. Champions have a wide range and variety of emotions, and a great passion for novelty. They see life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil, and they want to experience all the meaningful events and fascinating people in the world. The most outgoing of the Idealists, Champions often can't wait to tell others of their extraordinary experiences. Champions can be tireless in talking with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out. And usually this is not simple storytelling; Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions. Their strong drive to speak out on issues and events, along with their boundless enthusiasm and natural talent with language, makes them the most vivacious and inspiring of all the types.

Fiercely individualistic, Champions strive toward a kind of personal authenticity, and this intention always to be themselves is usually quite attractive to others. At the same time, Champions have outstanding intuitive powers and can tell what is going on inside of others, reading hidden emotions and giving special significance to words or actions. In fact, Champions are constantly scanning the social environment, and no intriguing character or silent motive is likely to escape their attention. Far more than the other Idealists, Champions are keen and probing observers of the people around them, and are capable of intense concentration on another individual. Their attention is rarely passive or casual. On the contrary, Champions tend to be extra sensitive and alert, always ready for emergencies, always on the lookout for what's possible.

Champions are good with people and usually have a wide range of personal relationships. They are warm and full of energy with their friends. They are likable and at ease with colleagues, and handle their employees or students with great skill. They are good in public and on the telephone, and are so spontaneous and dramatic that others love to be in their company. Champions are positive, exuberant people, and often their confidence in the goodness of life and of human nature makes good things happen.

I've taken the test several times. I always come out very strongly intuitive and perceptive, but nearly evenly split between introvert/extrovert and thinking/feeling.

I'm a fairly consistent NTJ. I sometimes waffle toward E, but I'm currently I. These other personality tests you've mention intrigue me.

I'm silly.

Search hates me.

I'm an ENFP, though, so my double-posting this topic is cute and zany. [Smile]

Unless I'm an ENTP. In that case, I'm secretly laughing at all of you for engaging me.

My first result here, in the the prior thread, said INTP. Every MBTI I've taken since has been INTJ.
