I take the Myers-Brigg Type Indicator Test at least once a year– to see whether or not I should be a plumber or continue my sad state of affairs as Funemployed/Curator of YouTube Videos and Cat Macros on the World Wide Web*. So far, I’ve taken it twice this year– and almost every single time I’ve gotten a different response from it. Last week I was an ESTJ, and today I’m ENTJ. Now I don’t think I change that much on a daily, or that matter yearly basis. From what I can tell I tend to go back and forth on two variables the most– E vs I (Extroversion vs. Introversion), usually I’m pretty split down the middle (today’s split was a 53/47) and N and S (Sensing vs. Intuition) which was slightly more skewed towards one than the other (42/58). Funnily enough though, I’ve been pretty downright consistent when it comes to Thinking vs. Feeling (guess which one I’m not) and Judging vs. Perceiving.
I think the different consistent inconsistent results makes me multifaceted.
“Sensing and intuition are the information-gathering (perceiving) functions. They describe how new information is understood and interpreted. Individuals who prefer sensing are more likely to trust information that is in the present, tangible and concrete: that is, information that can be understood by the five senses. They tend to distrust hunches that seem to come out of nowhere. They prefer to look for details and facts. For them, the meaning is in the data. On the other hand, those who prefer intuition tend to trust information that is more abstract or theoretical, that can be associated with other information (either remembered or discovered by seeking a wider context or pattern). They may be more interested in future possibilities. They tend to trust those flashes of insight that seem to bubble up from the unconscious mind. The meaning is in how the data relates to the pattern or theory.” – Wikipedia.
“Perceiving is the preference outwardly displayed. Perceiving people are flexible, like to keep their options open and think randomly. They like to act spontaneously and are adaptable. Perceivers like to keep things open ended. Judging is the preference outwardly displayed. Judging does not mean “judgmental”. Judging people like order, organization and think sequentially. They like to have things planned and settled. Judging people seek closure.” – Mypersonality.info.
NT Temperament – The “Intellectuals”: NTs are introspective, logical and on a constant quest for knowledge. They are practical and unsentimental in their approach to problem solving. The actions of an NT are precise and follow a systematic course. Abstract, theoretical and technically adept, NTs are naturally inventive. They can also be described as being analytical, intellectual, inquisitive, independent and complex.

“ENTJs are strategic, organized and possess natural leadership qualities. They are master coordinators that can effectively give direction to groups. They are able to understand complicated organizational situations and quick to develop intelligent solutions. ENTJs are outspoken and will not hesitate to speak of their plans for improvement. They are decisive and value knowledge, efficiency and competence.”
“ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people’s feelings, and more than likely don’t believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people’s feelings.” – Portrait of an ENTJ.
