Discovering Me: My Myers Briggs Results

discover

For the first installment of my discovering me series, I decided to start with The Myers-Brigg test. This test is widely known and used for tons of different purposes. I originally took this test back in high school for class. I remember feeling really connected to my results and feel like they represented me really well so I wanted to see what results I would get this time around over 6 years later. The results I got last time was INTP. The website I used was 16 personalities which was the first one to come up when I did the search.

The test was rather quick the estimate that it will take less than 12 minutes and I agree it didn’t take me to long to complete this test. The results were…

I’m so excited to see that my results haven’t changed since I really connected with the results originally. With your type chart, you also get 8 different pages full of information they collected on your personality type. This includes famous people in your type, strengths, and weaknesses, and much more.

Fun Facts

  • INTPs make up only 3% of the population
  • Considered the most precise of the types
  • Majority of INTP are males only about 1/3 are female

INTP Strengths

  • Analytical and abstract thinkers
  • Imagitive
  • Open-Minded
  • Enthusiastic
  • Honest/straightforward

One of my favorite things about the results of this test is the fact that I agree with so much of the results. When I think of my strengths these are what I think and the fact that this test “sees” that in me makes me feel really good.

INTP Weaknesses

  • Private and withdrawn
  • Insensitive
  • Absent-minded
  • Condescending
  • Loathe rules and guidelines
  • Second, guess themselves

On the opposite side of the coin, the weakness they say we have I feel is also accurate. Sometimes I have trouble recognizing that I am projecting my weaknesses and I have to reevaluate what I doing or thinking especially when it comes to being obsessed with whatever project that has caught my attention at the time. I’ve also noticed that I am very frank and I don’t always think before I speak which results in a lot of people having hurt feelings.

There are a couple of sections on relationships including romantic and parental which I found interesting. The gist is that we are really lax in both. Things like anniversaries, dates, and presents aren’t huge for us and we tend to forget them, Which is something my boyfriend can attest to (sorry). What I found really interesting however was the parental page. I don’t plan to have kids but I strongly agreed with the thoughts they expressed. We tend to be really lax and allow self-expression and strives on “Whys” the downside being emotional support being a huge weakness which is something I know I suck at. Teenage years would be a nightmare for me and my awkward what are feelings? moments.

My favorite section was the work-related one. Currently, I work as a Pharmacy Technician and even though I love aspects of the job I don’t feel comfortable in this work setting. I’m not a fan of constant face to face interactions it makes my anxiety spike like crazy and I would like to be challenged intellectually more than I am. According to the INTP profile, they think I would strive more in an analytical setting and I agree. Stats and science or even math have always been my comfort spots and those things tend to keep my attention the longest including at my current job. I found this really interesting since I am hoping to go back to school in the hopes of eventually working in a different field that challenges me more.

I love partaking in quizzes like this one because it makes me process facts about myself that I don’t always think about on my own. Is there a part of me that might of know that I have trouble expressing my emotions? Sure but actually seeing that as an identifying factor in a way that isn’t an attack on me and just a part of who I am was an amazing feeling. Overall, I am so happy to have taken this test and learn a little bit more about myself in the process.
