Take the keys to cognition test. It’s the backdoor because it goes by cognitive functions instead of being straightforward with the letters.Interesting. I had taken the 16 personalities test a while back, and I got INFP. I retook the test and noticed that they changed up the questions (the wording, at least). Now my results are INTP. However, on some of the traits, I am close to 50/50. I guess that explains the drastic change. I retook the test again a couple times, and it is consistently INTP (Architect). I feel like I am somewhere inbetween the Mediator and Architect personalities.
I have very strong moral values (Mediator) but I also believe that these values/principles are absolute truths which are upheld and supported by science and logic. So while I am a very creative, passionate person, I also think that logic is more important than feelings or emotions. Overall, the personality tests are very interesting, but I'm not sure just how accurate they are, (I'll have to research that).
I took the test twice once in college 40 years ago got INFP and many years later INTP looking now it appears I'm both sort of mixed. The psychology community does not take these tests too seriously.
Personality tests are my special interest.I'm INTJ. I don't have just a casual understanding of Myers-Briggs, as its one of my special interests (typology in general; and more aptly Jung's 8 cognitive functions - so if you name a letter order I can spit out the stacked order of the cognitive functions being used by that type and how that influences their preferences). Probably not uncommon for any INTx's that find typology of interest.
I'm not sure I agree with the hypothesis that INTx's and INFx's are over-represented on the spectrum (I'll qualify that with: I'm not sure I DISAGREE, either). But, to play devil's advocate, you know what those types are likely to have in common? Struggling with outward social lives and instead coming to communities like this to find like-minded people (and voting on subsequent polls). So it kind of throws salt on survey as far as I'm concerned.
My rationale: I do not believe being on the spectrum has a significant effect on the perception (S/N) or judgement (T/F) cognitive preferences. It is likely to lead to an over-representation of introversion, but there are many extraverted auties, too. In lower numbers, yet assuredly E.
It would be interesting to do objective testing of groups of auties and comparing it to the general population statistics, though.
I create personality tests because it is my special interest. Check out my blog.I'm an INFP. 100% sure. MBTI is one of my obsessions, and I've spent about 500-1000 hours studying it and the Jungian functions. Each day, MBTI involuntarily comes into my head, at least once.
Edit: I've actually spent thousands of hours, now that I think about it. Yeah... I like it... A LOT!
I take this like IQ looks good on surface. Look deeper interesting the math is very similar to industrial colour control"People love trying to make sense out of chaos. Which would explain so many of us are drawn to the idea of categorizing ourselves. We’re complicated beings and the MBTI, much like our zodiac sign, seems to offer insights about others and ourselves — our habits, preferences, and the way we move through the world. Another attractive element is the flattering spin MBTI puts on every personality type."
