I took this test a couple times a few years apart and got INTJ both times.  I'd say it's accurate.

ENFJ here.... and ditto on the planning the office parties thing.  ;)

Me too!!!

I used to be a tie between F and T, but over the years I've become more F.  The first time I took Meyers-Briggs, about ten years ago, I was EXXJ (a tie in both of the middle two).  Then I think after that I've always been N, but T and F went back and forth until the past few years, when F won out.  The E and the J have never waivered.

I'm really surprised that an "introverted" personality is suitable for the law, but there it is... a career in law suggested!

Did you expect introverts to be drawn to fields likes medicine, education, and psychology?

It seems like lawyers need people skills as well.
I'm a people-person, which is why I want out of computer programming!!!!!!!


YES YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!!!

and I'm an ENFP, so I'm actually unique and special, not just unique and special like all of your kindergarten teachers said you were.

I've taken a few of these and the only thing I am consistently is a very strong NT. There is a good site out there about the NT combo, but I don't remember where. The other two letters aren't as telling from what I understand.

I like how they call the NTs the "rationals," implying everyone else is irrational.

I'm INTP-

I felt like I was answering the questions in such a random and contradictory way....then I read the extended explanations of the personality type and it described me perfectly.  Very strange, but I guess it means it's accurate!

I usually hate admitting how introverted I am, but whatever :)

What exactly is the difference between P and J? hmmm....
It said INTP would be good for corporate law.

I've always been an INTJ. Very strong in N, T and J, but almost even between extrovert and introvert.

JSYK, the theory about INTJs being attracted to internet forums and other similar pursuits is pretty well-accepted.

Also, some people have posited a correlation between INTJ and INFP personality types with Asperger's and High-Functioning Autism (HFA), respectively.
