YOUR Personality Type? (Myers-Briggs/16 Personalities Edition)

What is you Myers-Briggs personality type? You can take the test here but answer with the truth, not what you WANT to be true.

Take the test at the 16 personalities site

or search human metrics myers-briggs

What was your result? Do you think it was accurate?

The rarest for men is INFJ and for women it is INTJ.

I stands for Introvert, E stands for Extrovert

N stands for iNtuition, S stands for Sensing

T stands for Thinking, F stands for Feeling

J stands for Judgment, P stands for perception

I am a female INTJ so I am introverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging.

The types are broken into these categories:

Analysts (INTP- The Architect, INTJ- The MasterMind, ENTP- The Visionary , ENTJ- The Commander)

Diplomats (INFP- The Healer, INFJ- The Counselor, ENFP- The Champion, ENFJ- The Teacher)

Sentinels (ISTP- The Craftsman, ISTJ- The Inspector, ESTP- The Doer, ESTJ- The Supervisor)

Explorers (ISFP- The Composer, ISFJ- The Protector, ESFP- The Performer, ESFJ- The Provider)

16 Personalities test is a "renovated" spin off of the original Myers-Briggs so although all the symbol and types are the same some of the names differ depending on the site (ie. INTJ is the architect on 16 personalities but the mastermind in Myers Briggs, INTP is the architect on the Myers Briggs but the logician on 16 Personalities)

Let me know what you think! Does this have any validity? I personally think my results are spot on!

ENFJ here. The protagonist........ Definitely accurate for me and I think it explains my roles in the past pretty well. The relationships part is a little off for me though but it did match me with my spouses type

Aug 2, 2019

Me:

INTJ

  1. Introvert(12%) iNtuitive(38%) Thinking(12%) Judging(34%)
  2. You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (12%)
  3. You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
  4. You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)
  5. You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (34%)

INFJ, and the 16 personalities write up is very accurate.

It's why I don't think I could survive or be happy in a banking career, but also why I struggle with the bullshit of corporate.

Aug 4, 2019

Very cool those are pretty rare especially amongst men! I definitely see its validity too

INTJ. Scarily accurate when I took this years ago. It doesn't get everything right but gives you enough of the framework.

Aug 4, 2019

Same! Mine was too. I noticed weaknesses in some areas as well, but 95% accurate I would say.

ISTP

I don't think it has any real validity since personality is just too complex to be classified in 16 types. However, I think it's fun to read about "myself" and it's a good subject to talk about on a date.

Aug 4, 2019

I see the validity, but I do see where that argument can be made. There is one test called WAVE which asks emotional questions -which to me have nothing to do with personality. I see emotions as separate from who we are. It is more the way that we react to our emotions.

I took this test a few months ago and got INFJ.

I find the test pretty accurate. Unlike many tests, it was very specific and did not paint a broad brush that could describe most people.

I do remember my Introvert/ Extrovert score was right on the border. I would consider myself an outgoing introvert.

Do you think your results are totally wrong then? I think it is "wrong" in the sense that people have to analyze themselves and many people don't know themselves.

myers briggs is kinda like the smart people's astrology. it just tells u a bunch of shit and ur like "oh ya thats me"

theres no actual hard science behind it and any study u can point to pretty much says its bullshit

Another ENFJ here or the protagonist. I definitely see how its accurate though my introvert and extrovert were almost 50/50. I could b an INFJ too

I am pretty close on the judgement and perception side myself. I definitely think INTJ applies more than INTP though

ENTP - The Debater - or the Analyst who doesn't like doing the actual analyst work.

Took the test at 16 and was INTJ, took it again at 25 and became ESTP. I feel like getting older makes you approach things more holistically and less of a teenage sociopath. Anyone else have a similar situation?

Don't really see that as a fair analysis. INTJs are actually more emotionally in tune than INTP but are very guarded. I would argue that maybe at that age you didn't really know yourself or you answered questions with bias. The premise of the test is that answers are supposed to remain the same over years

I wouldn't necessarily agree with the notion that you don't change personalities. I think that you maintain a core group of principles, but real life hits you like a sack of bricks after growing up and graduating. I know I was a lot more insufferably "smart" when I was younger, and i'm much friendlier and laid back in comparison.

Life experience has a significant impact on how you treat people and act. In addition, you're always going to be biased in submission on how you'd like to be perceived rather than others perceptions of you. It would be really interesting to see a reverse Myers-Briggs test, using your 5 closest friends and closest family members.

INTJ. I consider myself an "extroverted introvert"

Aug 5, 2019

ESTP-A. Not quite sure what it means, but wouldn't put too much weight on an online test based on self-reported questions.

Aug 5, 2019

INFJ here, very spot on in regards to how I tend to fall into the counselor/teacher/explainer/educator/peacemaker/therapist role in work, life, love and pretty much all facets of my world.

Aug 5, 2019

I got ESTP and then closed the tab. Idk what ESTP really means about me. Cool little test tho and was fun to take, thanks for recommending.

Aug 5, 2019

Yeah similar to my reaction, I got ENFP though aka "The Campaigner". It got some core parts of me correct but at the end of the day, everyone is an individual and it's those little pieces that are a real difference from the buckets Meyers-Briggs offers.

Aug 6, 2019

You should definitely should look into the results if you have time! It is a really great personality strength and weakness analysis.

INFP - Assertive with slight preference to inro over extro

Aug 5, 2019

INTP. Interesting tidbit that INTP is rare and makes up only 3% of the population...Does finance attract a disproportionately high number of this personality? Seems like there are way more INTP's here than 3%. Probably just a shoddy sample size.

Aug 6, 2019

INTJ is even more rare and yet INTJ and INTP are showing up all over here. Maybe finance attracts these personality types? They are known as the "analysts" so makes sense actually! haha

ENTP

Aug 6, 2019

Went back and took the test again to see if I had changed from INTJ in the last couple of years. Turns out I'm even moreso in that category so it does a good job explaining me. Breakdown:

Introverted: 81%
Intuitive: 81%
Thinking: 75%
Judging: 79%
Assertive: 89%

I'm not even close to any other category. Not sure whether that's a good or bad thing..

Aug 6, 2019

Not a bad thing just a personality! Me and you have similar stats although my introversion is a little less. Every type has strengths and weaknesses.

Aug 6, 2019

Yeah I know that in my personal life I'm much more introverted so I actively become the opposite when in a corporate/networking setting. It'd be exhausting to be extroverted like that all the time though.

Honestly surprised by the number of introverts on this forum given that commonly finance guys are extroverts.

ENTJ here

Aug 6, 2019

Like I said in a reply above, I think it's more that introverts who excel in a corporate setting can "turn it on" when they want to. That's how I am at least. I'm extremely introverted to the point I don't like being around people most of the time but you would have NO idea if you just judged me based on my networking and talks with higher level directors and such.

Aug 6, 2019

You're also pretty early on in your career. When your weekend/evenings become networks where you just have to be on naturally, that is when extroverted personalities really thrive. If you just turn it on in meetings/when you see people, you'll never have that extra connection in your network to get something done.

Work never stops at the highest level...it's like saying doing something you enjoy and you'll never work a day in your life. Hanging out at the country club or around people and that ends up being your relaxation technique, and then have that lead to new business/connections is what I really mean. It is something that takes time to see play out and it is hard to see from the junior level. I would bet your MDs are mostly extroverted (even if they are awkward).

Edit: this is also one of the most poorly written things I think I have ever created, but I dont care.

Aug 6, 2019

I am mostly an extrovert when it comes to deal-sourcing and sales, but out of work I barely talk to anyone but close friends. Definitely have a "cat" type personality more than a dog.

Depends very much so on what part of finance you're in. For a banker / trader / sales, I'd bet he/she was an extrovert. For an equity researcher / quant, my money is that he/she's an introvert.

I work at an asset manager, and we were profiled by a consultant based on a series of tests of whether we were introverted or extroverted (among other things). Turned out that 80-85% of us were introverted. If you did this same thing at Citi's trading division, I wouldn't be shocked if it was the other way around.

Aug 6, 2019

ESFJ ... haven't seen anyone post this one yet.

Interesting though .. Although my extroversion was high .. the other 3 were like 60/40

Aug 6, 2019

Did you think the profile was accurate? Maybe you can fall over into another category if not.

Aug 7, 2019

Kinda sorta .. there were things that I thought were uncanny .. like organizing events, hosting people, bringing people together .. Hard-working and Loyal .. that is spot on.

But then it mentioned that my type was "deeply affected by any sort of criticisim" ... that's not me at all.

This is such a simplistic way of looking at MBTI that completely ignores the functions and leads to people miss categorizing themselves.

Aug 6, 2019

Are you referring to my analysis or the 16 personalities spin-off? Because I purposely referenced viewers to the site so they could take it and do research themselves.

I didn't want to go "too" in depth and create an overly long post. I know there's definitely more to elaborate upon. I've done more research then I probably should've haha

Aug 7, 2019

So with MBTI people think you can just look at which letter you are and pair them up (and there are a bunch of quizzes that will do that). But if you actually go into the theory it's more complicated (as I'm sure you know) and I would have picked a different quiz that doesn't just do that letters and give %s but does it based on the functions.
