    I guess I'm out of it. But what does MBTI, etc. stand for?

    Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

    Famous personality test. Technically, the test is private, so you won't find an official test online, but there's plenty of knockoffs of varying quality.

    Perhaps someone here will point us to a definitive free test.

    I guess I'm more of an INTP then J. So, Logician, rather than Architect.

    My S/N and J/P scores are right near the middle.

    I've just discovered that there's a good way to narrow it down when in doubt.
    I Googled 'differences between INTJ and INTP' and there's pages of stuff that help me refine my Type. Definitely lean toward INTP.

    I'd suggest anyone who takes a/the test: look to see if any of your pairs are right near the middle between poles - then just Google "differences between..."

    i would quite like to take the test
    i have before but i forgot what result i got.

    $50.00 us$ online & im not going to pay for anything

    16 types ... etc ...
    there is only soo much binary path ways to define basic premise to form interactive material judgement
    so conditions are hedged
    16 is a nice number to give definition with out getting too lost in complicated angles.

    subjective experience & personal expression define us uniquely
    while many trait's seek to have us all become the same as everyone else

    humans have a genetic drive to seek conformity
    but once you get into the mind & the upper end of intellectual expression it all goes in many different directions i guess it may potentially stereo type into a double set,
    soo like maybe 32 basic variations like strong conservative or strong experimental
    but that wont detract from the base drive matrix

    nonsense science chaos & confusion
    cluttered coagulates
    framing delusion
    fragmented artifacts installing munitions
    of thoughts past & present
    in no formal infusion

    (its a bit quite so dont be afraid to shout your opinions more free expression & diversity = better)
    [[when everyone agrees on everything its time to panic]]

    i like your question
    my personality type is "F-cked-up"
    & im not sure it influences my self expression(artistic expression/creativity) but im sure it influences my actions & behaviors
    but im a bit of a disaffected sociopath(satire)

    i think it would be easy to undermine Myers Briggs with modern science.
    however the range of types & the functional value would still be maintained based on generic cultural & developmental aspects
    when we look at most semi-modern 1st world societys, they are still very old worldy conformist in their construction of the childs mind.

    easy example the smacking debate

    & another is the
    helicopter parent
    versus the
    just-let-them-beat-each-other-with-a-stick-until-1-wins

    when you factor that alongside religious conformity of thought & mind control which is used by a majority
    you have a ever decreasing circle of personality variation by starvation of brain growth

    so culture must change to allow children to become more intelligent
    education
    food(very critical)
    exercise
    environmental toxin & stimulation etc

    etc etc

    so on one hand you can say its a bit like calling apes monkeys
    a lot of humans tend to render down to collective dumbing & group think conformity for personal power & fear.

    as long as the world is maintained as dangerous violent & unfriendly
    that system will remain self validating & producing the same lower order functionality.

    what influences peoples choices in testing ?
    that's probably worth a paper

    to survive
    children are forced to conform
    conform to eating
    drinking
    walking
    talking
    not sitting on a fire
    not jumping off a cliff

    etc etc into culture
    group clan tribe trading partners every season
    etc etc

    we all conform
    but we are now in the age where we can communicate the upper intellectual theory of what non conformity is in a intellectual paradigm.
    scares the shit out of a lot of people
    like a child learning what to be scared of & what not to be scared of
    toilet training going to sleep alone etc ... what-ever ...

    I mean the cognitive function stack, of sensing feeling intuition and thinking for each personality type. Below in this context means less preferred. Also, vice versa. Outside means either having no fuction below it or no function above it in the function stack. Inside means having 1 fuction above it and 2 functions below it, or vice versa, 2 functions above it and 1 function below it.

    Are you saying they have a specific hierarchy? That's news to me - but I haven't read up on it in decades.

    I always thought they were four properties that could be independently set on each of four axes.

    there was an original type that had that
    im wondering if they have updated it

    keeping in mind having a test that tells you, that you have serious issues & need urgent therapy is probably not going to fly
    & because it needs to remain functional & accepted to stay useful
    it needs to deliver a bit of a warm fuzzy
    instead of a catastrophic life crisis

    I asked Mr Google for free MBTI online test and this came up

    https://www.truity.com/test/type-finder-personality-test-new

    Not done the test. I consider them about ½ cm above horoscopes. What ever you are told is reasonably vague so you agree it could be you and inclusions outside of your view of yourself minor aberrations and don't mean anything

    Good luck finding yourself

    The difference of course, is that the outcome is entirely based on your input to about a hundred questions, rather than something external.

    Regardless of you or your horoscope maker giving the input you will pick out stuff you consider good (you)and stuff you consider bad (not you)

    Seen a few test where people have been given the results and asked to gauge accuracy

    Then swap with another person and did the other person fit what was on their result paper?

    Kicker - everyone in the room had been given the same assessment

    Horoscopes have been swapped around to appear different in different newspapers

    Perhaps ½ cm above horoscopes is to high

    You haven't taken the test so you're really just painting everything with the same broad brush of your preconceptions. There's an irrational fear in there somewhere.

    In fact, you are erecting a strawman (horoscopy and "other" tests with no input) and knocking that down. And they are terrible comparisons.

    To put in context a bit clearer. Have not taken the test on the link I provide

    In the RAAF took quite a few. As a RN came in close contact with many patients undergoing various assessments

    Not impressed with most

    Totally agree. MBTI is considered the Gold Standard. Though still should be taken with a grain of salt.
