    Hey, all, strap in tight, because this is a long post (sorry in advance). Little bit of a wonky issue here. The reason I have 3 subjects in the title is because they all mesh around the same question-issue, which is to ask why I act the way I do. See, here's the dilemma. I've taken the...

    What's my personality type?
    My boyfriend has taken the MBTI battery a number of times and consistently tests ENFJ. However......

  13. Emotional Maturity Tests?

    Cognitive Functions
    I saw a few "tests" around on the web trying to deduce your emotional maturity when I made a typo looking for emotional intelligence info. They seemed pretty sketchy to me, so I use the words test loosely here (since they appeared to be very subjective), yet the concept feels very valid, yet...

    What's my personality type?
    Hi there, I'm puzzled about what my 22 year old brother's type could be. As a kid, he was quite introverted and shy, and spent a lot of time reading about random topics. He has always loved writing and is a very poetic guy. He's also always been very disorganized, a classic P. From this...
