Am I a INTJ?

I have taken 6 different MB tests the last day, and 4 say Im a INTJ while two say ISTJ.

So, how do I know what I am? It seems more to be of wording type of thing. Since English is my second language how the question is asked may affect how I answer the question.

Its the N or S question I get the different readings on. The other three are very stable.

I guess the INTJ are supposed to be very smart ( in serious test Ive always landed somewhere around 120, not that high, most IQ test can be thought with repitition ) but never been really good at School. Atleast not in our school system where boundries where never set. No homework needed etc..

I love to think about efficient use of materials and time. How to calculate making capital investments and depreciacion. Ive never studied it, but I would love to read about it. How to make a businesses more efficient and competetive. Im studying Social Economics, but I find it to teoretical, so its very boring to me. That and with a full time job, I get very low grades. So I should not be a INTJ?

Could anybody direct me somewhere I could find out if Im more inclined to N or S?

At the moment I'm inclined to say ISTJ. You find the theoretical things boring. We tend to find them quite interesting.
Do you take facts as absolute truths?

Do you tend to look to the future? If so, do you look a few days, weeks forward. Or do you look a few years ahead?

Do you prefer concrete subjects as opposed to theoretical?
If you feel that ISTJ fits you better, that could be your type.

You could hang around INTJ and ISTJ forums to see which one you feel more at home at...
INTJs tend to turn out as Type 1 or 5.... I still stick with ISTJ.
Isis: I just took the test over at, the same site your linking under your "User Signature"

I actually paid for the personalitymax test..dont know why. Seemed like a profesional site.

I: 95%
N: 63%
T: 89%
J: 68%

Intrapersonel: 80%
Logic/math: 80%
Kinesthetic: 74%
Naturalist: 74%

By the way, how do I set up the same User Signature as you? Showing my stats?
Go to User CP. Go to edit signature.
Get the link from your personality account and copy/paste it into the box.

Since I dont have anything else to do today, I spent most of the day on this forum and reading about different personalities. So after taking this Ennagram test again (at after 3 years, I took 4 more at 4 different sites. All those say Im a 1. And I read Type 1 is usually a ISTJ. But you can see from my test, Im clearly not.

Now, Im really sceptical about all this. How come they differ so much? I mean, I can agree with some of the Type 6. But clearly not all.

Man, I dunno. :cool:
Some INTJs also turn out as Type 1's.
