Easy Allies MBTI Personality Typing

  • I would just like to point out to everyone who's a bit surprised by their own results that the difference between being introverted and extroverted isn't necessarily how you behave but rather what you take energy from. like which activities re-energize you and make you feel good. I've met some really outgoing people at work who are actually introverts and vice versa.

    I haven't done Myers Briggs but I have done the other personality test which splits you into different colors (the name escapes me at the moment). I was a yellow red in that which is basically "chatty and bossy" lol.

  • Am I really gonna be the first person here to mention that MBTI is bunk? It's not an effective tool because the questions you answer are way too obvious, so you know the affect your answers have on the outcome, i.e. if I think I'm INTJ in advance, I can easily answer the questions in a way that will give me that result, which makes the test far from objective. This is why it's used by employers, because they want to know what you think of yourself, not what you're actually like. Also, it assumes all the data point lie on a dichotomy rather than a spectrum, not taking into account that very few people are purely one or the other. The test is also very unreliable: the same person taking the test at different times can get very different results. In fact, after only five weeks, between 39% and 76% of people get different results. I should also mention that neither Myers nor Briggs was a psychologist. Myers had a degree in agriculture and she wrote a lot. Briggs was only involved because she was Myer's daughter, as far as I can tell. My favorite description of the MBTI test is that it's a horoscope for people who think they're smarter than people who listen to horoscopes.

  • @Doctor-Professor it's just for fun dude. I dont think anyone takes these things too seriously.

    at its best you could say it's a snapshot of where you are now and at its worst it's a snapshot of where you want to be.

    either way it's not like anyone is changing their life around based on their score results

  • @Mango Pssh, as if the internet is a place for fun. That'll be the day /s.

    You're right, though. It's no coincidence my nickname in high school was "Buzzkill"

  • Well, I'm a very lifelike robot.

  • @Doctor-Professor Your nickname might have been Buzzkill but what does your MBTI say about what kind of a buzzkill you are ;)

    Seriously though, I hope most people here don't take it too seriously, the results of this shouldn't define you. Personality quizzes in general tend to be pretty bunk. I can't imagine I'm the only one who remembers places like Quizilla which were riddled with tests along the lines of "What Anime Character Are You?" with painfully obvious, and in no way relate able, answers. This is still in that wheelhouse, just better disguised. However, I think, like you mentioned with employers administering MBTI, it can be pretty revealing as to how someone views themselves and others.

    Also, don't tempt me to invoke Jungian archetypes or Enneagrams! 

  • Good grief, there are a lot of INFJ results...

  • Interesting to see the communities responses. Here are my very rough guesses on each of the allies types:
    Brandon- ESFJ
    Ian- ENTJ
    Blood- ISTJ
    Kyle- ENFJ
    Huber- ESFP
    Brad- ISTP
    Don- ISFP
    Damiani- ISTJ
    Ben- INFP

  • @Billy

    No way! I am ISFP and lo-and behold, Yukiko is my match, who also happens to be my favourite in P4!
