Type Indicator: Am I Weird or What?

Kinzi, inspired by Hala, has literally tagged everyone in an effort to determine their Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personality test designed to assist a person in identifying some significant personal preferences.

The type indicator linked to on both Hala's and Kinzi's blogs is just a small mock-up of the actual test, so results may be varied. I have taken the actual test several times throughout my career and here are my results:

I am a EINTJP. Yup, you read that right. Rather than the traditional 4-character score, I rated exactly 50/50 in two categories (which is possible on the actual test). So I am an Extrovert and Introvert (depends on my mood/situation; I prefer one or the other at times), Intuitive, Thinking and both Judging and Perceiving (I like a combination of planning and spontaneity).

Dave, so NOT weird! Balanced! Mature! Being able to operate efficiently in several realms, yea, you are gifted by God.

Confession: I am also that way, which is probably why I SO affirm it! I was ENFP ALL the way 20 years ago, now I'm equally E/I and J/P, although the NF is off the charts.

YOU are realistic to know that only 10% of those tagged will actually do it, and only 1% will blog it; I will of course be disappointed :D. But it was a good idea, mish?

I'd go with 'unique' rather than 'weird,' no?? :)

This is my first comment here, so hi..

I have studied this indicator in a change managment, It is useful in change management becasue it provides some data about your employees and how they react..Anyway I just wanted to give you some stats about how people are divided between the categories:
INTROVERTS (45-50%)
EXTROVERTS (50-55%)

SENSING (65-70%)
INTUITIVE (30-35%)

THINKERS (45-55%)
FEELERS (45-55% Women

JUDGING (55-60%)
PERCEIVING (40-45%)

And you know what these stats explain the lots of conflicts, both on the individual side and on the interanational one..
