Part of being me means I question everything. So why not question my Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) result even though it has been the same since the 1990s when I first did the test? Overthinking is great (more good stuff about this subject on the Pointless Overthinking blog).
I did the Personality Hacker free test (you have to give them your email). It follows the Myers-Briggs types closely but gives them new names. It isn’t as lengthy or thorough as MBTI, but its free so no complaints here.
I’m a Perspectives/Effectiveness Personality (INTJ)
Famous INTJs the brief report lists (Do I care about this? Yes, yes I do. Should I care? Probably not!):
- Carl Jung, psychiatrist, and psychologist
- Nikola Tesla, inventor
- Isaac Asimov, writer
Where are all the amazing INTJ women? I went looking and found a site I quickly bookmarked for future exploration: Owlcation (you had me at owl). And another: INTJ vision (INTJ women are unicorns? I’m hooked).
Let’s fix the above list:
- Marie Currie (INTJ or INTP — there’s an online debate and I agree she was INTJ), physicist, chemist, Nobel Laureate
- Michelle Obama, lawyer, writer, badass
- Audrey Hepburn, actor, humanitarian
There, that’s much better!
My “unique Genius Style” from the report emailed to me has to be shared. I think the strengths are accurate. I know the weaknesses are.
- Foresees outcomes long into the future
- Understands how the mind works
- A futurist, while keeping practical
- Getting out of your head and into action
- Perfectionist, self-sabotaging
- Can be prideful”
Any other unicorns out there? My tribe is small and new members are welcome, after the obligatory introvert period of reflection of course.
Peace and progress,
