Myers-Briggs says I’ve changed

Change is good, right?

Prompted by Gotham Gal’s post about taking an online Myers-Briggs personality test, I decided to give the test another whirl.

I had taken it several years ago and got an INFP result – that’s Introversion, iNtuition, Feeling, Perception. (I wasn’t especially pleased with that, incidentally. Not for any particular reason, but because it struck me as fuzzy.)

Half a dozen years later, it seems I’ve decided that all that Feeling and Perceiving stuff is a luxury of youth (and money, of which I now have much much less than I did when I “was” an INFP).

The current result says I’m an INTJ – that’s Introversion, iNtuition, Thinking, Judgment. Yep, still introverted and intuitive (mebbe), but now thinking and judging a bit harder. My age is showing, perhaps?

The only thing I really like about this new assessment (as described here) is that “we” INTJ types are – drumroll, please – Masterminds.



  1. ESTJ or ENTJ here.

    I was 50% on Sensing so it could be swapped with Intuitive. I’m a Supervisor or a Fieldmarshal. Get back to work or see to it that someone does!

  2. In response to my post, someone on Twitter remarked that it was weird to see 2 axes shift like that (I went from INFP to INTJ), but ya know, how scientific can an online quiz be in the first place? It’s kind of fun, though…
