One of the saddest things I ever saw in an HR office was one of those "Magic 8-Ball" toys sitting on the HR manager's desk.
Bwahaha, I know I shouldn't laugh - that's just terrible - but still, couldn't help myself.

Sadder still, Magic 8-Ball and the MBTI system work equally well for determining the best-fit candidate for employment. That is to say, not very well at all.
 
I'm sorry you get misunderstood ... but we are going off-topic here, and spamming the place.
 
The only problem with the MBTI test is that it is completely meaningless.

There is just no evidence behind it. The characteristics measured by the test have almost no predictive power on how happy you will be in a situation, how you will perform at your job, or how happy you will be in your marriage.

The test was developed in the 1940s based on the totally untested theories of Carl Jung and is now thoroughly disregarded by the psychology community. Even Jung warned that his personality "types" were just rough tendencies he had observed, rather than strict classifications. Several analyses have shown the test is totally ineffective at predicting people's success in various jobs, and that about half of the people who take it twice get different results each time.

The INFP-T personality type does describe me a lot, except for the hopeless romantic part (in the negative list of traits). I'm more successful in a romantic relationship than a lot of people I know. But otherwise, it does describe me fully. Although empathy is supposed to be one of an INFP-T's positive points, which is why I get SO offended and angry whenever people on autism sites tell me I lack empathy.
 
The MBTI or KTS or the russian Quadra Gamma thing. All of them are preferences.

So i have 4 preferences in this, INFP. I prefer Introvert over Extrovert etc. This MBTI doesn't guarantee love or job. It indicates possibility as mathematical exercise to more than 50%. Like democrasy.
 
Hopeless romantic doesn't mean that a person is unlucky in love.

Hopeless romantic refers to a person who has many sentimental & idealistic feelings.
 
Socionics, an Offshoot of MBTI

There is no reason to consider Socionics as a science. There is no empirically experimental data to support Socionics, there is no empirical verification of its many claims, and it uses purely speculative categories as its primary shortcoming. Also, it lacks any clearly-defined typing method, leading to each 'school' of Socionics to define methods of their own. Socionic typology is merely a Russian version of post-Jung typology, similar to the Myers-Briggs typology, but distinguished by a greater number of typo-logical features and the formulation of prerequisites for the study of inter-type relationships.

In short, Socionics is merely an illegitimate derivative of MBTI and is even more massively infested with doubletalk and psychobabble.

There are other similar derivatives of MBTI quackery, each one progressively more meaningless and open to abuse by scammers and naive, yet well-meaning, 'counselors' (e.g., storefront 'psychics' who have fallen for their own sales-pitches).
 
My first attempt to "Diagnose" people is: I diagnose @Cryptid as ___J for Judging type. Because he appears edgy. So based on @rollerskate (opener) theory he might be INTJ

I'm INFP (edit: and ISTJ) and percieving and am as percieving Open Ended

I am a INFJ
Which I like and always seem to fit.
I think I am neurodiverse.
But I do not believe in stereotypes in terms yes autistic people can be highly sensitive same with people with ADHD.
But so can just highly intelligent people as well I think.

How do INFPs experience a Te grip?

Eric Portman an INFP @ Quora says:

I become very frustrated with things being messy or chaotic, and I try frantically to clean and fix everything, until I usually have some kind of meltdown and call a crisis line, take a walk, a bath, probably cry and scream!
 
I don’t know how much stock I put in the MBTI anymore since people now compare it to horoscopes, but I’m an INFP.
 
I recall testing right on the line between INTP and INTJ, and I could get it to come out one or the other depending on interpretation. I also recall hearing negative things about the test's purpose or validity, but I can't remember what. On its face, I question for what purpose it would be suitable rather than a distraction from more important things like good character.
 
Autism can be INFP, but not all INFP can be Autism.

But it's fun. I would have ended up like Eric Portman above without MBTI...

I saw people on a dating site sharing their results, and they acted like they thought it would help them narrow the field looking for compatible personalities. I don't have a field to narrow, personally.

So essentially, MBTI is the "New Astrology". Back in the 1960s and well into the 1970s, your astrological sign mattered about as much as your physical appearance, earning potential, and ability to get along with others. Now MBTI seems to have replaced Astrology in that respect.

People have traded one myth for another in an effort to find a shortcut to the perfect relationship.
