General Discussion / Re: [Poll] What personality type are you?

These "tests" always make me laugh. Just as with any kind of survey or poll, the results can only be as good as the method and questions. I've looked at, taken and even written tests of one kind or another. I even had trouble and asked a lot of my own questions during a deep professional psychological evaluation for a job once. The shrink just had a fit and was not at all happy because I dared to question him and his/the test assumptions.

My usual response to most of the multiple choice and true/false questions go something like this:

1. Not relevant to my life or in opposition to my principles
2. Not enough information - too many variables possible
3. There is no best answer, let alone a good one... pass
4. Oh, just hell no, not answering that one

When I wrote a test, the questions were as neutral as possible, and the only response accepted was an essay describing the student's position, with required rationale - and documentation where applicable.

So I don't bother with these tests... I'm an old curmudgeon woman who's made up her mind about just about everything now. I sure don't need anyone to tell me anything about my personality. LOL I've lived with it for 70 years.

INTP-A

I've taken it before, but don't remember the old results. I don't have a lot of faith in this result either.

Have any of y'all taken a MMPI?

I can only take that test after complete physical exhaustion, sleep-deprivation, in the North Carolina Southern Pines Forest, with cadre walking around looking for people falling asleep!
I've taken it three times.

I'm an ENTP on the Meyers-Briggs and a 7w8 on the enneagram.  I hadn't seen the enneagram before - it's interesting.  It doesn't seem to nail me down as accurately and precisely as the MBTI, but it brought up some things I hadn't thought of. 

Have any of y'all taken a MMPI?  There is a good free one you can take online somewhere.  I found it extremely helpful in understanding myself.  I could have predicted some of the more obvious results (that I'm hostile to authority and have an "exaggerated sense of self-importance"), but the most highly elevated scale was hypomania -- something I'd never heard of until I took the test.  Knowing I'm hypomanic and what that means has been extremely helpful to me.

I love taking all forms of personality tests, political quizzes, etc.  Part of that exaggerated sense of self-importance I guess!

I just took the enneagram test.

Type 1- 6        
Type 2- 1        
Type 3- 7        
Type 4- 3        
Type 5- 3        
Type 6- 4        
Type 7- 2       
Type 8- 8   
Type 9- 2

                                                       



I guess that makes me a Type 8, then type 3. Also strong in type 1.


EDIT- I took a few other enneagram tests. Type 8 and type 1 were consistently high. Some tests however, showed high scores in types 5 and 6.

Looks like things are getting even more interesting in the #FakeNews...
