Myers-Briggs Typology Indicator
-- A personality type set and theory.
It rates
Extroversion (E) vs Introversio (I)
Intution (N) vs Sensing (S)
Thinking (T) vs Feeling (F)
Percieving (P) vs Judging (J)

For example, I am an INTP.
I am introverted, I prefer to rely on reason over my feelings -- which is based on my intuition. I like a flexible lifestyle.

DISC is what I'm use to as well.

DISC is a group of psychometric tests based on the 1928 work of psychologist William Moulton Marston. The tests classify four aspects of personality by testing a person's preferences in word associations (compare with Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). DISC is an acronym for:

* Dominance - relating to control, power and assertiveness
* Influence - relating to social situations and communication
* Steadiness - relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness
* Compliance (or conscientiousness or caution) - relating to structure and organization

I think it's important to remember that while these tests may be accurate to a degree, they aren't dead on. Your mood one day may change the answer you would choose from another day, and plus nothing is 100% accurate. No test can account for everything. Some people may look at their results and live how the results say they are just because they're told that, not because that's how they are.

ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on both an individual and a humanitarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another.


ENFPs are global learners. Close enough is satisfactory to the ENFP, which may unnerve more precise thinking types, especially with such things as piano practice ("three quarter notes or four ... what's the difference?")

ENFPs are energized by being around people.

ENFPs sometimes can be blindsided by their secondary Feeling function. Hasty decisions based on deeply felt values may boil over with unpredictable results. More than one ENFP has abruptly quit a job in such a moment.

This is me!

Judging just means your Judging (as opposed to perceiving) function is extroverted.

Another way of writing INTJ is Ni Te, because your an iNtuitive Thinker whose extroverted function is the judging function (denoted Te for extroverted thinking) and your first preference will be introverted, in this case your iNtuition (denoted Ni for introverted intuition).

It has nothing to do with being judgmental. It just means how you interact with the world outside of you will be organized and calculated.

By the way, INTJs are some of the best people ever, second only to INTPs ;)

Oh gosh.

See, I have gotten into a bad habit of trying to type musicians and roles people play in movies. I start thinking about it as soon as I hear their first couple lines in the movie, or after I hear a distinct cue in lyrics.

One thought I had was that John Cooper might be an INFJ. He is definitely iNtuitive and his lyrics for the last couple albums have seemed all Feeling oriented. He might be appealing to a crowd, though. I would really have to meet him in person in order to have any good guess. (debut album through Invincible seemed more NT than Alien Youth through current)

I had been thinking John was maybe an ENFJ. The lyrics have always sounded kind of NF-ish to me, but I've thought of him as extroverted mainly because he's more talkative, energetic, crazy, etc.

INFJ...
Beneath the quiet exterior, INFJs hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life. Those who are activists -- INFJs gravitate toward such a role -- are there for the cause, not for personal glory or political power.

INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs may fantasize about getting revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. The concept of 'poetic justice' is appealing to the INFJ.

"There's something rotten in Denmark." Accurately suspicious about others' motives, INFJs are not easily led. These are the people that you can rarely fool any of the time. Though affable and sympathetic to most, INFJs are selective about their friends. Such a friendship is a symbiotic bond that transcends mere words.

INFJs have a knack for fluency in language and facility in communication. In addition, nonverbal sensitivity enables the INFJ to know and be known by others intimately.

Writing, counseling, public service and even politics are areas where INFJs frequently find their niche.


-----
This is definately me. I'm studying to be an pediatric nurse practitioner working to advance third world medical access en Latin America/South America. I'm great at communication activities, writing, speaking, etc. etc. and I have a few very passionate beliefs. (laughs) plus I was always the one in my friends never fooled by the "pretty boys."

YAY! I'm the same as my film hero, Sidney Poiter!

Alternate Glass Answers
by Cory Caplinger

ENFJ - Look in your heart. It holds the answers to all of life's mysteries. It will tell you what the glass is.

ENFP - Hey!!! I bet if we got a Bunch of these glasses we could make a waterslide! Or maybe a pool! Oh wait, we could freeze this water and make an ice sculpture! Or we could...

INFP - Can't you see how this glass represents our world? It is neither perfect nor bad, it's simply here and its value is determined by each and every one of us. We cannot survive if we don't drink the water...if we don't get along with our fellow people.

INFJ - (closes eyes, concentrates) It's half-empty. (The INFJ is referring to a glass that is 200 miles away)

ENTJ - You call this competence?!?!?!

INTJ - How can you say it's half-full? It's half-empty! I refuse to listen to your reasoning!

ENTP - Hmm...it's...(Ingeniously constructs a hacksaw from two straws and a shoelace, cuts the glass in half)...Ah...Now it's completely full!

INTP - What? (Looks up in bewilderment after being distracted from his mathematical theory book)

ESTJ - Dag nabbit! Look! This water isn't even filled up all the way! What is this world coming to? You know, maybe if people respect the law like they used to in the good old days...

ESFJ - It's half-full! But we better fill it up all the way before our guests arrive! We must give them a cordial welcome!

ISTJ - It's half-empty. Such a lazy waiter. Things could get done around here if people worked hard and took more responsibility!

ISFJ - No, I don't want this glass. I don't deserve it. (Really a ploy to make you feel guilty!)

ESTP - Water?!?! Bah! Give me Beer! HEY ZEKE! GOT ANY BUDWEISER? And bring out the darts - me and Johnny got a bet going on!

ESFP - (Not present to answer because he/she is out at a party)

ISTP - Eh. Just water. Needs to be spiked with some Jack Daniels though.

ISFP - (Adds a pinch of lemon) Salut! (Sips while listening to Mozart)

Myers-Briggs Epitaphs

Maybe it's an idealist/NF thing? Because I have a tendency to be hypersensitive/overemotional too. And I didn't really "get" you for awhile and had thought you were being critical before I realized I misunderstood you.

Concerning the reliability (consistency) and validity (how accurately it measures what it is supposed to) ... the MBTI scores rather low for personality type testing. I wrote a paper on it. The article I referenced had the following information:

"[RELIABILITY] The authors report the usual estimates of reliability, including split-half, coefficient alpha, and test-retest reliabilities, which indicate acceptable levels of reliability for the scores. Most of these reliabilities, however, are based on the use of the continuous preference scores from the instrument. Such analyses are contrary to the theory underlying the MBTI--that the instrument is designed to sort individuals into types rather than to assign continuous scores to them. One reliability analysis is included that reports the percentage of agreement for the dichotomies for three test-retest samples. The percentage of participants reporting the identical four preferences after a 4-week interval range from 55% to 80%, with an average of 65%.

[VALIDITY] The construct validity of the four-factor model of the MBTI was investigated using confirmatory factor analysis. The predicted four-factor model appeared to be the best fit for the data, compared to two competing models. In the manual, numerous validity studies are reported that correlated MBTI continuous scores with other instruments, such as the California Psychological Inventory (CPI). Again, the use of continuous scores is contrary to the theory underlying the instrument, so these results should be interpreted with caution."

So MBTI is not accurate? Does that mean that some people are not given consistent answers to what type they are? Is there a chance that I might be a type different to my results, even when I am consistenly "typed" an INFJ? Should MBTI be discarded altogether? How do we use it with the results on MBTI accuracy?

Actually, it means that it is accurate only for the portrait types. Anyone else will have variable results, which the MBTI did not factor in. It means that the MBTI is very applicable, but ... not entirely according to the hard theory.

For example, if I am typed INTP ... then retest it and get INTJ... that's still pretty high for INT... but the fact that even ONE letter changed means I am considered a (very) different type of person.

Which simply is stated: It doesn't actually include the XXXX types or anyone who has a balance on even one (e.g., XNTP, IXTP, INXP, INTX). If you look into the cognitive processes theory, you will find difficulty ordering any of the balanced types.

For example,
ESTJ -- Te Si Ne Fi
ESFJ -- Fe Si Ne Ti

ESXJ -- Fe/Te Si Ne Ti/Fi ....?

A meaningful conversation. Once. That's all you get from ESFPs. :P


Actually, I joke. I just usually find them to be too shallow or uninvolved with anything I would consider meaningful. The look and newness of a shoe, rather than the comfort and utility of the shoe. The color of a book and the ugly picture on the front, rather than what the book was about and if it was worth reading. The fun, crazy stuph or number of people at a party, rather than what was discussed or with whom they were discussing.

Now I am just sounding boring, on top of labeling them with negative stereotypes.

My latest Skillet guess is:

John-ENFJ
Korey-INFP
Lori-ENFP
Ben-INFJ

I'm not sure how right I am, however, especially with Lori.

NightCrawler
06-14-2007, 06:12 AM
NFs... all of them? Huh.

DarkestRose
06-14-2007, 06:19 AM
Wondering that. But I wasn't totally sure if Lori was an N, but she seems to fit the ENFP type more than the ESFP type.

I have suspected Korey as an INFP for awhile, especially since INFPs get along great with ENFJs, which is what I think John is.

Also, I recall Ben once stating that he is more similar to Korey. And also I remember Lori saying she's more like John. I can't cite where.

I have also been suspecting that Ben is either an INFJ/INFP but I was thinking maybe more J than P.

But I've also been wondering, since they're a neat band, if J's might predominate. But then again, some P's are rather neat and some J's are not.

Not necessarily. All it would show is variation among people. I think "weird", would require people to have enough things uncommon with people on a certain scale. (at least 2 SD from the mean ... like getting a 130 on an IQ test)

Meanwhile, I believe that people with depression or schizophrenia would score high on iNuitition. I want to test this out, but I am not gonna find a sample for the experiment while I am still an undergrad. (though the MBTI is specifically designed to be tested on healthy adults in a calm setting)

I am:

I S F J
44 12 38 11

moderately expressed introvert
slightly expressed sensing personality
moderately expressed feeling personality
slightly expressed judging personality

I mostly agree with the type description I read, but there were a few things that were pretty much polar opposites from me. One of the main ones was this:

Like most Is, ISFJs have a few, close friends. They are extremely loyal to these, and are ready to provide emotional and practical support at a moment's notice. (However, like most Fs they hate confrontation; if you get into a fight, don't expect them to jump in after you. You can count on them, however, run and get the nearest authority figure.)

I am a very vehement defender of my friends and family, sometimes even beyond the bounds of reason. If someone starts a fight with a person I care about, be assured that I will jump in after them, often regardless of whether my friend is right or wrong. I absolutely hate it when people fight with or criticize people I love. That may just be a family trait I picked up, though, because I come from a long line of argumentative people. ::] It's amazing we haven't wiped each other out.
