Myers-Briggs Personality Types


#1

What's everyone's Myers-Briggs personality type? I'm curious to see what kind of people are attracted to hardcore weight lifting. I am myself an INFJ.


#2

INTP

I work out at home and read as much as I can on training, often in a dark house. Perfect INTP. My training partner and only other person I talk to is an INTP. I am a recluse. INTP sucks.


#3

ENTJ. That's supposedly fieldmarshal. Makes sense because I played QB, Point Guard, and Pitcher through school and was often called a born leader. Anybody else's ring true?

intp


#5

I'd love to tell ya, but I'm not paying any amount of money to take a damn personality test.


#6

HCPG myself, I must say it is about as true as it could possibly be.


#7

I took the test and it said that I'm FUCK'd, I so sad.


#8

Ya don't have to pay for it, man.

ESTJ by the way.


#9

There are some free tests online. Google.


#10

INTJ to ENTJ, life made me (slightly) less of a geek. I'm somewhat of an adrenaline junkie and a bookworm.


#11

INTJ


#12

I'm ESTJ, I'm on the border with a couple of them though.


#13

ESTJ-supervisor, according to those internet tests...I think time in the military slightly biased my answers, especially the ones about deadlines and being on time.


#14

ISTP


#15

Do you know the basis of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator? Do you know who Myers and Briggs were or their qualifications to create such a test? Or are you just another victim of the Forer effect because your MBTI type sounds just like you?

I do business consulting and facilitation and I refer to Myers-Briggs as "astrology for business." A lot of consultants and facilitators sell MBTI testing to their customers - my conscience won't let me.

It's a shame that Myers-Briggs is better known than Bertram Forer. Kind of like how Dr Phil is better known as a "fitness expert" than any of the T-Nation staff/writers.
