    For those who know your MBTI type, what are you?


    Well, well, interesting that this kind of discussion pops up here. For those who know your MBTI type, what are you? To keep this topic relevant, let's just say that I am curious what the personality types of people who play VF/FG are. I am an INFJ, with some leaning toward INTJ.

    Not sure it belongs in this thread but it would be interesting to see other peoples, i'm an INFP apparently.

    I don't know which type I am, but going with wikipedia's explanations it seems that I'm ISTP. Some of the given examples describe me very well. I thought it was ISTJ at first, but when I went to the ISTJ page I understood that I got the last letter way wrong...

    I have my own theory on what FG players might have in common.
    Nobody will care because I have no science behind me but I have observed that, in any game, some people are smarter when acting as a team while others are smarter when acting as an individual.
    I'm stronger as an individual, and I think that most FG players who are actually good at FGs might be that way.

    There is more to it, though.
    I can't play RTS games like Starcraft because I can't concentrate on many things at once.
    Apparently it's a sign of lower IQ, yippee.
    On the other hand I seem to pay more attention than most people when my concentration is allowed to be focused.

    I have doubts that you can explain anything with only one theory, whichever it may be.

    @Mods - let's split this talk about MBTI types into another thread. I can't believe I've never thought to start a topic on this, and it is interesting to know.

    Me, I am type ISTP, and the only toggle would be between introverted and extroverted, because I am an STP to the core! =)

    @Plume, man, me and you will disagree, you "J"udger you!! =)

    The only other ISTP I know is my father. ISTP is one of the rare types.

    Dammit, looks like we'll have to disagree because of our fathers, then!
    My father should be ISTJ, he really likes to devise a plan and keep a routine.

    MBTI is interesting in so many ways. For instance, an ISTP is definitely someone you would NOT want as the general of an army, because we would over think things to death and get killed while thinking, whereas an ISTJ takes charge with little regard to the outcome, but still has a plan.

    I guess I toggle between INFP and ENFP, though the latter is rare.

    Question, are there reliable online tests for MBTI types? I've only been through this stuff with my counsellor and it was a while ago.

    Yes, there are quite a few MBTI tests online. But it still can be misleading in terms of what one thinks they are. Everyone should know about a truly amazing book on this subject, called "Please Understand Me." I HIGHLY recommend reading it!! But start with part 1 for sure.

    Also interesting is that most people will toggle between introverted and extroverted, but the last letter, "P"erceiving or "J"udging has little to no toggle at all, and very much dictates your personality. The I & E have the least overall affect.

    One of the best things I've heard in terms of clarifying whether you are more introverted or extroverted is this:

    An introvert needs to be alone to recharge his/her battery.
    An extrovert needs to be with people to recharge his/her battery.

    I remember taking one of those tests a while back, think I ended up with an INTJ.

    @Seidon - ESFP is the type of my longest and best friend - fun loving, easy going, and the life of the party.

    @Kamais - My type can't understand the way your type thinks. =)

    So all this talk got me interested in these "types" and I took one of dem durr free online test, (which probably aint super accurate) and it says my type is INTJ.

    In the strength of preferences %, I got Introverted=89 Intuitive=69, Thinking=12 (lol), Judging=44

    And this next part i'll just copy and paste.

    You are:
    very expressed introvert

    distinctively expressed intuitive personality

    slightly expressed thinking personality

    moderately expressed judging personality
    ----------------------------------------------

    Whatever though lol, I was just a little interested to see. This is the test I took. Has like 75 yes or no questions.

    I tend to end up in the following categories depending on the questions asked or tests taken:

    ESFP - The Performer
    or
    ENFP - The Champion

    Both of these are pretty accurate and would describe me in a nutshell.

    Really like this MBTI stuff!

    I used to always test as INFP a few years back, but recently I've gotten ENFP. I've definitely changed a bit...

    In other words, I'm an IDEALIST overall (NF).

    Gutti-kun, I even got ESFP a couple of times, so I slide between Sensing (S) and Intuition (n) depending on questions asked and tests taken.

    I think ENFP describes me pretty well nowadays. [​IMG]

    There was definitely one or two questions that neither answers in the test felt right, and those may have swayed the outcome slightly, but the results below do seem surprisingly insightful.

    What it all means for when playing VF5FS is anyone's guess, but maybe I'll need a new vfdc name, as I'm sure the intuition and thinking scores I've got look more Obi Wan than Princess Bride's Sicilian Vizzini [​IMG]

    Type: INTJ

    Introverted 11%
    Intuitive 88%
    Thinking 12%
    Judging 44%

    Slightly expressed introvert
    Very expressed intuitive personality
    Slightly expressed thinking personality
    Moderately expressed judging personality
