jung personality type shtuff

hmmm... personality test, but not that great of one, I don't think. If a personality test doesn't make you reflect on who you are, how can it accurately define your personality? And I know I don't want to be more thinking than feeling. Apparently I really like extroverted, intuitive, perceptive people.

After going here and reading the descriptions of the three possible me's, I'm inclined to think that I'm an ENTP, "Inventor." The ENFJ and ENFP are also like me though.

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best. The professor who juggles half a dozen ideas for research papers and grant proposals in his mind while giving a highly entertaining lecture on an abstruse subject is a classic example of the type. So is the stand-up comedian whose lampoons are not only funny, but incisively accurate.

ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport.

ENTPs are as innovative and ingenious at problem-solving as they are at verbal gymnastics; on occasion, however, they manage to outsmart themselves. This can take the form of getting found out at "sharp practice"--ENTPs have been known to cut corners without regard to the rules if it's expedient -- or simply in the collapse of an over-ambitious juggling act. Both at work and at home, ENTPs are very fond of "toys"--physical or intellectual, the more sophisticated the better. They tend to tire of these quickly, however, and move on to new ones.

ENTPs are basically optimists, but in spite of this (perhaps because of it?), they tend to become extremely petulant about small setbacks and inconveniences. (Major setbacks they tend to regard as challenges, and tackle with determination.) ENTPs have little patience with those they consider wrongheaded or unintelligent, and show little restraint in demonstrating this. However, they do tend to be extremely genial, if not charming, when not being harassed by life in general.

In terms of their relationships with others, ENTPs are capable of bonding very closely and, initially, suddenly, with their loved ones. Some appear to be deceptively offhand with their nearest and dearest; others are so demonstrative that they succeed in shocking co-workers who've only seen their professional side. ENTPs are also good at acquiring friends who are as clever and entertaining as they are. Aside from those two areas, ENTPs tend to be oblivious of the rest of humanity, except as an audience -- good, bad, or potential.

I had to take a test similiar to that once and it said that I was an extroverted person or something along those lines.

Here's my question though (and it's the question I generally have with these tests): what's the point of taking a test where you already know what the answer's going to be going into it? Okay, so I reflect, and I think, yeah, I'm not much for people. Do I really need to take a test to tell me that my lonerness is in fact introversion? Answering a bunch of questions that don't seem to require much reflection seems to be at least somewhat more useful, since it's not so much of you diagnosing yourself (though I still felt this one had that anyway).

I just love to be analyzed. Even in stupid ways.

Well, I can't really explain what I mean very well... but I remember having taken a really excellent personality test that I had no clue what the outcome would be from the questions. So... compared to that this one was lousy, but in and of itself this one was pretty good.

As far as the why, it helps you understand and relate to people better if you understand their personality types... The D type, for instance, is often read as being deliberately hurtful, when they are actually a very blunt personality who doesn't understand that phrasing matters to other people.

I have no clue if I actually answered your question or not. ;-)

yeah, I think we pretty much agree on the personality test thing. There's no point to a test if you can sway the answers because you know where everything's going

I got ENTP for all three...so apparently I like myself and would enjoy dating me, heh.
