Brutally Honest Personality Test

You can find the test here.

 My result:

Loser- INTP
26% Extraversion, 60% Intuition, 73% Thinking, 40% Judging
Talked to another human being lately? I’m serious. You value knowledge above ALL else. You love new ideas, and become very excited over abstractions and theories. The fact that nobody else cares still hasn’t become apparent to you…Nerd’s a great word to describe you, and I seriously couldn’t care less about the different definitions of the word and why you’re actually more of a geek than a nerd. Don’t pretend you weren’t thinking that. You want every single miniscule fact and theory to be presented correctly.Critical? Sarcastic? Cynical? Pessimistic? Just a few words to describe you when you’re at your very best…*cough* Sorry, I mean worst. Picking up the dudes or dudettes isn’t something you find easy, but don’t worry too much about it. You can blame it on your personality type now.On top of all this, you’re shy.Now, quickly go and delete everything about “theoretical questions” from your profile page. As long as nobody tries to start a conversation with you, just MAYBE you’ll now have a chance of picking up a date. But don’t get your hopes up.I am interested though. If a tree fell over in a forest, would it really make a sound?

The answer to the last question is of course, “it depends.”  You left out the pivotal clause!  Is there anyone there to hear it, or not?  I there is, then the answer is “yes.”  Now, if there were no one there to hear the tree falling over, the answer would be no.  The vibrations caused by the tree falling only become a sound when they are received and interpreted by a brain.  Until then, they remain vibrations in the air.

 Take that, stupid test!

    As an INTP with a very strong T, you’d better start to develop your F! I’m serious! This would make you less closed minded to what you consider new age twaddle. Direct that great mind of yours to some consideration of the discoveries in the new physics. You might discover that Newton does not have the last word on the nature of reality.

    Now I’ve really got your back up! I know this because, like you, I’m an N.

    P.S. Those vibrations constitute a sound whether your ears pick it up or not. Anyway, that’s a Zen type question. Not everything can be understood by using logic. It’s meant to take your brain into convolutions. This is meant to lead you to transcend thought which leads to enlightenment.

    NOW I’VE REALLY GOT YOUR BACK UP!!!

    Yours sincerely, INFJ

    “Not everything can be understood by using logic.”

    That doesn’t make any sense!

    Of course it makes sense. How would you classify intuition for instance? How about mythology? “Myth refers to something quite different from the rational and material worlds. Actually, mythology is a kind of communication. Its symbols, images, and stories convey descriptions of psychic or non-physical reality which neither sense experience nor rational concepts can describe”.

    Suggested reading: Joseph Campbell, Morton Kelsey, (professor of theology, Notre Dame University.

    I know you’ll logic away this one! Maybe I should work on my “T”?

    Note my new name.

  6. INFJ February 19, 2007 at 4:03 pm

    Note my new,new name. (Jungian slip!)

    All this just doesn’t compute.

  8. INFJ December 11, 2008 at 1:02 pm

    Of course you would think, “This just doesn’t compute” to YOUR way of thinking BECAUSE you’re an INTP!
