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.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

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.
