Just wondering how accurate is this and where most people in here fit.
If you don't know yours you can "test" yourself here: http://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test
You can tell a lot about a person from only a couple of accurate answers because the questions aren't random. They've been well thought out to specifically determine the main characteristics of someones personality. That's why you've never been asked what's the color of your hair or which hand you fap with.
I think you seem to be overestimating the complexity of humans personality.
I'm not straight out saying it is bullshit, sorry if it sounded like that.
Did you read the description of your personality type on that website? Don't you think what the test claims to know about you is a bit much?
>Did you read the description of your personality type on that website?
It's been spot on every time.
Frankly you sound like you're underage and you probably don't even know yourself well enough to either answer accurately (due to lack of life experience) or to recognize yourself from the result.
Its a good way to generalize your personality. I still think its somewhat inaccurate because it offers choices that your image of what you want to be that can bias the results.
But ive been intj for 8 years taking these tests once in a while so maybe not
I forget the study itself, but I know a group did an experiment where they asked a bunch of people to fill out a personality questionnaire and then gave them a description of their personality, and a large majority (70%+) said it was exactly right - only it then turned out they'd all been handed exactly the same, pre-written script. It turns out that a. most people aren't as different as you'd think and b. people often see patterns where there are none, in this case fitting vague statements to their personal lives. It's why some people still swear by astrology and how 'mediums' can do cold readings.
The vague description of personality in that experiment was designed to only include things everyone could relate to and no information that had the possibility of setting you apart from anyone else was revealed. E.g. "sometimes you find yourself craving fruits more than usually" as opposed to "you prefer oranges over apples".
This is nothing similar to how MBTI works as the 16 personality types are distinct and oftentimes the opposites of each other.
Ah, I stand corrected then. I've just gone back and forth a bit with this myself as I've been reading through my own results and grudgingly admitting that they are pretty spot on in a number of places, but then whoever this >>7813140 is got exactly the same result as me to within a few percent, and my fragile INFP emotions don't want to believe there could be someone else reading this and having it describe them as well as it describes me.
There have been papers that show validity of the Jungian test.

There will be people who will post in these threads who will throw a shitfit because they believe that the test is an absolute and (for lack of a better term) cold reads you with a 'one-size-fits-all' description, thinking that if you have a certain type, you MUST align within ALL parameters of that type.
There will be people who will post in these threads who will usually shitpost and make false correlations to astronomy/horoscopes.
Every MBTI thread ever in one post.
it's actually pretty accurate.
I don't care what emotions people have as long as the argument is logical. it's not about if *YOU* like the argument or not, it's about factual correctness and what we can achieve by being logical.
besides that, i always try to be "fluid" in my thinking, with the least amount of planning. this helps me to do "mental gymnastics" and get good ideas.
physics 3rd year here.
Well technically I'm an undergrad too, I'll just do one more year than the bachelors students.
Who would have thought that similar people would be found in similar circumstances? I mean this sincerely, in a "how could I have never realised this before" way.
I read the whole thing and this is so well done I'm tempted to purchase my premium profile.
It seems it been designed to trigger that emotional response on my part!
They've studied personality types ... of course they know what to tell me to have me purchase their stuff!
I bet somebody made this test to get free statistical data lol u idiots
I'd just like to state that I've taken the test probably around three times and each time I got something different. Mostly because my opinions of myself change throughout the day if that makes sense.
Like maybe I read something that made me realize that I really hate people more than I thought.
