<==========  ENFJ

I took the test again, just to be sure.  First time, last time, always...ENFJ!  :)

^ what you just said (sans the psychic bit) is so general that it proves my earlier point that i mentioned in this thread. these tests are so abhorrently inaccurate that they have to make such generalized and philosophical predictions about your nature that it seems like they're guessing it right and pinning down your personality just perfect. when in reality, it's way off.

oh i dunno.  here's a blurb on ENFPs in relationships, for example:

    *  Tendency to be smothering
    * Their enthusiasm may lead them to be unrealistic
    * Uninterested in dealing with "mundane" matters such as cleaning, paying bills, etc.
    * Hold onto bad relationships long after they've turned bad
    * Extreme dislike of conflict
    * Extreme dislike of criticism
    * Don't pay attention to their own needs
    * Constant quest for the perfect relationship may make them change relationships frequently
    * May become bored easily
    * Have difficulty scolding or punishing others

if a test result came back labeling me as an ENFP, i'd reject it as clearly false.


on the other hand, the INTJ profile fits my experience quite well:
    * Not threatened by conflict or criticism
    * Usually self-confident
    * Take their relationships and commitments seriously
    * Generally extremely intelligent and capable
    * Able to leave a relationship which should be ended, though they may dwell on for awhile afterwards
    * Interested in "optimizing" their relationships
    * Good listeners


what are you again?

Shocking that you manage to find one that made you look good and ENFJ's look bad  ::) Takes me right back.

::remembers that she stays out of it::

None of that sounds remotely like me in a relationship. The description didn't fit me very well, either.

I skipped a lot of questions, though, because I didn't really have an answer.

ETA: I guess it was ENFP's. But my general point still stands.

^ there are actually some strong indicators of its potential, arch. don't toss it aside as "crap" until 1) you've tried it and 2) you've found it doesn't appeal to your's or other's nature.

Difficult to argue the high number of self reported 'NT' rationals and 'I' introverts  on a law school discussion board.  Take INTJ, 1% of the general population but 29% here.

I'm too lazy to the do the chi-square, but would bet a lunch there are significant differences from the general population.  So the test may be garbage, but probably not crap, and definitely not feces  :)
