i took this quiz thing and i guess i didn't realize how rare people like me are, it pretty well fits me.

***Your Personality is the Rarest (INFJ)***

Your personality type is introspective, principled, self critical, and sensitive.

Only about 2% of all people have your personality - including 3% of all women and around 1% of all men.
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging.

"feeling and judging"

So you judge things based solely on an emotional response. You sound like an overzealous, numb-skulled ingrate that shouldn't be allowed to vote... if we're strictly going by your personality score.

We are pretty rare.

a) myers-briggs is totally bogus

b) that's not what feeling and judging means?

so I hope you were joking? I mean, I think you were, but I just want a "let the record show."

Ok, Puh-leeze.

I do not honestly wish to be hypercritical, but it seems rather foolish to base one's uniqueness off of a typological multiple choice personality quiz found on the internet.

One's personality is a function of genetic predisposition, upbringing, and the particular day and age at which one is tested. To say that 2% of the population has your personality is incorrect- 2% of the population fits into this category which was devised by whomever write the test. The system Myers-Briggs uses to categorize personality is an organizational phenomenon- not an accurate evaluation of who you are. Moreover, the test evaluates what you think you are, not what you necessarily truly are- it is in our subconscious nature to answer these questions based on what one believes oneself to be, not a rational evaluation of what one is.

Lastly, the word "rare" in this personality type description is not necessarily a good one. In our society, the word "rare" has a connotation of having more value or worth, whereas the word "common" can be somewhat degrading. That your opinion of your own personality on that certain day at that certain time landed you in a category denoted as "rare" does not make your personality any more or any less, for lack of a better word, special than that of anyone else's. It is what you do with this personality and these principles that set you apart, not where they get you when you are wasting time on the internet.

With this in mind, I will say that I have no doubt that you have a worthy personality, but also that you should not base your opinions of yourself off of a dubious multiple choice test on the internet.

I'm totally an INTJ. We *are* pretty rare, "comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population." Which makes it weird how many I know.

I like the idea of an INTJ party. But then again, all of Hannah's parties kind of turn into one anyways.

Hannah said...

if there is an intj party to which I'm not invited, I'll have to crash it... with my field-marshalling skills. :D

Only thing about that quiz that you took...pretty much all of them say that they're rare. I mean, it's blogthings. While your personality type may be "rare", it isn't really that big of a deal. Especially since that thing was only 12 questions, I think.

It has never been clear cut for me...sophomore year I was INTJ with the J very low and the I basically on zero and the NT at about 30s.

But now...


I feel a mix of the usual descriptions for INTJ and ENTP describe me.

The test taken by myself and some others who posted here is this:

It is 72 questions, and is one of the better free tests out there. It's not quite the hundred-and-some questions of the *real* Myers-Briggs assessment, but far better than the 10-question quickies out there.

That's just FYI.

Also, if you have any real curiosity about your types according to these tests, taken them at semiregular intervals, like annually or semiannually, and examine your scores holistically for patterns.

Of course, as other people have mentioned, these tests are just novelties. Only you can really know yourself, but it can be fun to see what sort of box you fit into.

As far as rarity is concerned: there are some types that are truly more statistically uncommon, but that is to be taken with a grain of salt. 1% of 6 billion people means that there are 60 million others just like you, though in the United States, 1% makes you one in a million ;-)

Interesting that, so far, nobody on this thread is a Sensor.
All Intuitives (or iNtuitives, as some sites like to write it).

Sorry - Tinted is the exception.

I have a friend who's supposedly an ISFP...but she doesn't go on this site.

Queen Sekaf said...

I'm an ENFP too!
I hope I am not the person you don't get along with, anon8

so i know we're "rare".. but i'm the third one on post to report that i, too, am INFJ. maybe there's just a larger percentage of tangst users who have this personality type.

Anonymous said...

I'm an INFJ now.
First and ENFP, then an ENFJ, now an INFJ.
Am I getting rarer and rarer?
Do I care?

There are sixteen possible types, everyone is rare.
