'sup?

Here's another test. This time, it is entirely based on dichotomy.
It will be easy to mark yourself with, there won't be any need to copy and paste the entire thing and write responses.

It is broken into clear sections - each preference pair of the dichotomy will be in a separate post, hopefully I'm able to secure the next three posts in a row after this one to make this happen.

Each dichotomy preference will be broken into two parts - a plain dichotomy test, based on information from the official MBTI website, and a second part based on the Step II facets.
I claim none of this work as my own, consider me merely the messenger.

I have rephrased quite a bit, to make it more easy to relate to, and understand.

At the bottom of each preference pair post, will be how to score yourself.
It's ridiculously easy. Be honest with yourself.

So, get a pen and paper, write up some kind of table, and record which answers you select for each part.

Which is more accurately represents you:

  2. I appreciate having the time to reflect on ideas, people and/or projects.

PART II.

Select which phrase, out of each of the following is most accurate.

Part II-A.
  1. I'm outgoing in social situations, and assertive when it comes to planning and directing gatherings. I carry out these kinds of social obligations with finesse, and find it easy to introduce people to each other. Connecting people who share similar interests is something I enjoy.

  2. I'm willing to initiate conversations in social situations with people I already know, or if I really have to due to my role. I generally appear at ease in familar surroundings, however I appear less at ease in larger gatherings or unfamiliar surroundings. I'm willing to introduce people to each other if no one else does.

  3. I consider social obligations to be unimportant and prefer to leave them to others. I prefer to discuss important issues in-depth and I can't stand small talk. I definitely don't want to introduce people to each other, and can be seen as quiet or shy.


Part II-B.

  1. I talk quite a bit, sometimes too much, and I'm pretty easy to get to know. I find I easily express my feelings and interests with others.

  2. I'm can be seen as either hard to get to know, or easy to get to know, depending on the situation. I generally show more interest in other peoples feelings and interests, rather than sharing my own. I'm generally only okay revealing that kind of thing around people I'm comfortable with.

  3. I keep pretty much all of my feelings and interests to myself. I'm seen as hard to get to know, because I process practically everything inside. I assume other people aren't interested in my thoughts.

Part II-C.

  1. I enjoy being around other people and prefer not to be on my own for too long. I like to feel I belong to larger groups. I've got many acquaintances and friends.

  2. I like both large group activities and one-on-one conversations sometimes. I find my degree of comfort with strangers depends on the situation. I can appear outgoing sometimes, and reserved sometimes, very in-between.

  3. I'm only interested in one-on-one conversations and prefer in-depth involvement with others. I would rather be friends with a smaller group of people that are important to me, rather than be part of a larger group. I draw a clear line in the sand, between who is a friend, and who is an acquaintance.

Part II-D.

  1. I learn better by doing, hearing and observing, rather than by reading or writing. I prefer to communicate in person, whether that's over the phone, face-to-face or via Skype etc doesn't matter. I'd much rather talk, than write, about a topic.

  2. I prefer to learn new things in person, and more familiar things by reading. I like to talk in person about non-technical information, but prefer to communicate by writing for more technical things. I'm comfortable actively participating in events, or quietly observing them.

  3. I learn better by reading and writing than by doing, and I communicate better by writing as well. I can concentrate better on reading written material, than listening to someone talk. I also remember information better, if I read it.

Part II-E.

  1. I like being right where the action is happening, and I often find myself being the centre of attention. I'm able to get other people caught up in my enthusiasm.

  2. I'm okay with showing enthusiasm when I'm comfortable with the people I'm talking to, or the topic I'm talking about, well... otherwise, I'd rather be in the background. I find my desire for quiet or action depends on how full or quiet my day has been.

  3. I prefer not to be in the centre of the action, much prefering calm, serenity, or silence. I'm irritated by noisy circumstances and places. I can have a calming effect on groups.

Do you prefer books that focus on:
  1. Facts, concrete real-world knowledge that I can actually use FOR REAL. IRL.
  2. Theories, concepts, ones that provide insight into the world.

When receiving new information, do you pay attention to:
  1. It's practical use - how I can apply it, for real.
  2. The possibilities it suggests.

Would you rather create something new by:
  1. Making small improvements or tweaking/refining something.
  2. Imagining an entire new approach.

Do you want to be appreciated for your:
  1. Practicality and common sense.
  2. Curiousity and insight.

Would you rather be seen as:
  1. A realist - someone who accepts a situation as it is, and is prepared to deal with it accordingly.
  2. An idealist - someone who is guided more by my ideals, than of practical concerns.

When receiving new information, are you more likely to:
  1. Act on it.
  2. Use it as a springboard to something else.

Are you generally more:
  1. Present-oriented, focused on what's currently happening.
  2. Future oriented, focused on what might happen.

Do you usually want to know:
  1. What the immediate task, or the next step is.
  2. What the next opportunity is.

Do you mostly:
  1. Enjoy the present.
  2. Anticipate the future.

With regards to reality, do you tend to:
  1. Accept it and deal with it, it is what it is.
  2. Want to change it.

With regards to traditions, do you generally:
  1. Enjoy and respect them.
  2. Prefer to break away from them.

Are you more willing to change your mind when:

Do you find yourself more:
  1. Wanting to perfect skills through practice.
  2. Wanting to learn new skills, getting bored with practice.

Which is the bigger flaw in you:
  1. I sometimes miss the bigger picture due to focusing so much on the details and specifics.
  2. I sometimes miss the details and specifics, due to only paying attention to the bigger picture.


PART IV

Select which phrase, out of each of the following, is the most accurate.

Part IV-A.

  1. I'm grounded in reality and facts. I interpret things literally and am careful about making inferences and assumptions. I begin with what I know is true, and have my facts in order before moving on.

  2. I want to know both the facts, and what they mean. I prefer to have the facts first, before moving to the meanings, though. I might get stuck on a fact when under pressure and can sometimes have difficulty seeing the bigger picture.

  3. I like to go straight beyond the surface and read between the lines, so to speak. I might use metaphors or symbols to explain my views. I can sometimes appear like an olympic pole vaulter with regards to the assumtions I make, and I enjoy brainstorming.

Part IV-B.

  1. I take pride in my common sense, and I value efficiency, practicality and cost effectiveness. I appreciate experiences things directly and seek tangible, real-world results.

  2. I like to look for and find some new ideas and methods, but I don't set out to re-invent the wheel right off the bat. I'm careful to avoid embracing anything that seems a little too far-fetched. I move pretty quickly to see how my ideas work, and what their limitations are.

  3. I like ingenuity for it's own sake, and am resourceful in dealing with completely new and unusual experiences. I can easily envision what I believe is needed for the future, and it may not be a solution that already exists.

Part IV-C.

  1. I find that applying ideas is more appealing than the ideas themselves. I need to see how something works, or is supposed to work, in order to really understand it. I prefer practical utility over intellectual wankery.

  2. I blend pragmatism and curiousity. I like to alternate back and forth between ideas, and their applications. I do want to see my best ideas actually come to fruition and be used, rather than just thought about.

  3. I enjoy acquiring new knowledge for its own sake. I focus on the concept or the idea, and not on it's real-world application. I prefer to start with an idea, rather than a problem.


Part IV-D.

  1. I learn best from direct hands-on experience. I'm careful not to generalise too much. I focus more on the present and the past, than on the future.

  2. I've got a mild interest in theories that explain things that are important to me. I'm not likely to pursue theories in any great depth. I see theories as mostly.. explaining patterns, but I'm more interested in seeing how those patterns actually work.

  3. I trust theory and believe it to be its own reality. I see most everything as fitting into a pattern, or theoretical context. I'm future oriented and don't focus on the present moment, or the past.


Part IV-E.

  1. I identify strongly with what is familar. I admire and support established institutions or methods. I'm reluctant to change things that are working well.

  2. I value some traditions in family and work activity. I'm eager to change procedures that don't work. I'll happily follow established procedures, as long as they work.

  3. I place high value in cleverness, uniqueness and inventiveness. I have a need to demonstrate my originality. I'd rather figure things out all by myself, than read any directions or instructions.

  2. Gather information, keep your options open.

Do you prefer to:
  1. Quickly decide things, so you can begin acting on your decision.
  2. Collect information so that you can fully understand what is required.

Are you more likely to want to:
  1. Get a decision made and over with, so you can move on to the next one.
  2. Hold off on making a decision, because a better option might arise.

Do you prefer to decisions to be:
  1. Final, unalterable. Once something is decided, that's it - move on.
  2. Tentative, in order to revisit decisions at a later date, if new information becomes available.

Do you feel most anxious:
  1. Until things are settled.
  2. When forced to decide too quickly.

Which is a bigger flaw for you:
  1. I decide things too quickly.

Which do you prefer more:
  1. Structure and organisation.
  2. Flexibility.

When it comes to surprises, do you more:
  1. Dislike ones that force me to change my plans.
  2. Enjoy ones that require me to adapt.

Schedules make you feel:
  1. Comfortable.
  2. Constrained.

Are you more likely to:
  1. Get frustrated if the plan changes.
  2. Get bored if nothing new happens.

Part VIII.

Select which phrase, out of each of the following is most accurate.

Part VIII-A.

  1. My motto might as well be "Be prepared." I prefer to work within a structured environment. I dislike diversions and surprises.

  2. I like a general plan, with some backups if possible. I don't mind interruptions, if there's no agenda in place. I dislike distractions once I've gotten into something.

  3. I like to be surprised and prefer to take things as they come. I prefer a leisurely pace, and let things unfold as they may. I don't like having to deal with plans in too much detail.

Part VIII-B.

  1. I like to make long-range plans, especially for leisurely activities. I enjoy looking ahead and planning for the future. I feel long-range planning makes me more efficient.

  2. I like to plan at work, but be flexible at home, or vica versa. I might plan for a few important goals, but not everything. I might go back and forth between enjoying the here and now, and planning for the future.

  3. I like to make plans on the spur of the moment, especially when it comes to leisure actitivies. I prefer to be flexible so that activities can unfold. I regret committing to things, as I feel this boxes me in.

Part VIII-C.

  2. I'm likely to find it hard to get started on a tast too far in advance. I find the pressure of a looming deadling to be a source of motivation. I work best when the deadline is close enough to cause a moderate amount of pressure.

  3. I feel I'm most creative when I'm under the pressure of a deadline. I find my mind working on an assigned task, even though nothing is on paper. I need to know just how late I can start, and still make the deadline.

Part VIII-D.

  • I am comfortable with routines, established methods and procedures. I prefer to control my time and enjoy scheduling both work and home activities. I seem rather predictable to other people, but I like it that way.

  • I'm comfortable with a moderate amount of routine. I feel some routine provides predictability, as well as the freedom to respond to opportunities as they arise. At work, I see routine as helpful, at home, I find it confining - or vica versa.

  • I enjoy complete freedom and openness to new experiences and see routines as contraints. I'm at my best when responding in the moment. I feel routine interferes with my ability to respond to unexpected opportunities.

Part VIII-E.

  1. I develop detailed plans for the tasks at hand. I define the subtasks of my life. I thoroughly prepare in precise ways, specifying all the steps needed to accomplish the goal.

  2. I prefer to have detailed plans in unfamiliar situations. I'm comfortable without a plan when I'm quite sure of myself. I don't need to have all of the steps in place and planned out, in order to move ahead.

  3. I dive into action without detailed plans. I believe a solution will emerge regardless of where I start. I like to wait and see what happens, then improvise.

definitley Introvert
slightly more Intuitive.

but am i the only one who thinks that Idealism is just tommorow's Realism? i find myself as someone who is both imaginitive and idealistic but also very realistic.

i have to say, nice investment.


in the end- im :

definitley Introvert
slightly more Intuitive
almost equal ( 10- 9 to Feeling )
and one of the extreme Precivers ( it was the easiest to answer, no kidding )

on the phrases part , i was either for many of them, the only exceptions were questions which indicate i am:

Reflective
Original

definitley Introvert
slightly more Intuitive.

but am i the only one who thinks that Idealism is just tommorow's Realism? i find myself as someone who is both imaginitive and idealistic but also very realistic.

i have to say, nice investment.
Ha, cheers - I've added T/F and P/J now.

and one of the extreme Precivers ( it was the easiest to answer, no kidding )

on the phrases part , i was either for many of them, the only exceptions were questions which indicate i am:

Reflective
Original
Questioning
Critical
Tender

Cool, one extra question then - and one I will add into the T/F section anyway, right after this:

With regards to apologies, do you see them as:
An admission to being wrong.
Necessary to repair a disconnect in a relationship.

E/I- 10:14
Multiple choice:
Either, either, either, active, either (now 11:14)
Final score: Introvert but barely. This is accurate to my real life.

S/I- 5:15
Multiple choice:
Abstract, either, conceptual, theoretical, original (now 5:19)
Final score: Quite the intuitive. Also accurate.

T/F- 9: 12
Multiple choice:
Either, empathetic, either, accepting, either (now 9:14)
Final score: Feeler. I’m probably much more of a feeler than the test indicates, however.

J/P- 10:6
Multiple choice:
Either, planful, either, either, either (now 11:6)
Final score: Judging. Based on dichotomies, this is accurate.

MBTI II-type based on dichotomies: INFJ. This is what I self-type as according to dichotomies as well.
Nicely done Turi! I liked how much you focused on the decision making aspect of J/P. Most tend to focus on messy or clean, which seems too dependent on multiple factors for my taste. The multiple-choice appear to highlight extremes, and I'm such a contradictory person I don't fit into either most of the time.

Why do you type yourself as an INFP, if you're an INFJ by dichotomy?

Cheers.

Why do you type yourself as an INFP, if you're an INFJ by dichotomy?
My twin types herself as INFJ and I type myself as INFP, but by dichotomies we are opposite. As children, I typed myself as an ENFP and I typed her as an INFJ based on dichotomies, but we switched. That isn’t to say that our personalities changed of course, we were simply developing. Whenever I was shy, reserved and sensitive, such as when I was a toddler and now, she was loud and bubbly. When I was outgoing, disorganized spontaneous and friendly, such as throughout elementary and middleschool, she was more off to herself and in her own world. There’s a reason to not type children. We played off of one another a lot and developed oddly.

I’ve been wondering if I am an INFJ for a while. Much of my identification as INFP is honestly because I know that it would upset my sister if I were to type as INFJ, as silly as that may be, because it would mean that she isn’t one as we are opposites in many regards. She identifies so strongly with being an INFJ and she is more knowledgable on MBTI, so I think she would immediately reject the idea. She so strongly identifies as an introvert as well, and I don't want to bring up the fact that I become more quickly overwhelmed by stimuli and people than she does and that I am much more shy than her.

In terms of cognitive functions, it’s a muddled mess to me. I think I prefer Te over Ti, but my understanding of those two functions is very biased. It seems as if I use Fi and Fe a fair amount as well. I used to think I was an Ne dom, but I now wonder how much I use it. It doesn’t seem like very much. It seems like I’ve been using Ni more, but I have a hard time understanding Ni and I don’t want to claim to be an Ni dom when I don’t understand it enough. I don’t identify with being strongly Si or Se yet I can make an argument for the usage of both.

INFP fits for now, and I don’t want to contribute to INFJ mistypes honestly. But I suppose an INFJ 4w3 sx/s? would probably look like an INFP. I will have to see as I get older. I am probably too young to accurately type myself and I must learn more about the functions.

Well, it wouldn't exactly be the biggest stretch - INFJ females are 3.7% of the population.
So, one in every 27-28 females is probably an INFJ.
I don't know any statistics on twins, but I mean, there's the possibility that you're just two different versions of the same type.
It's not like it's some uber rare type. I can see it happening.

Don't you think that possibly living a lie and mistyping yourself so as to not hurt/offend someone else is an Fe kinda thing to do?
Don't really want to bring functions into it, but eh, makes sense.

Ha! Come to think of it, it is, isn't it? I could see her as being an INFJ-Ni 5w4 so/sp and me as an INFJ-Fe 4w5 sx/sp with our differences being accentuated by our different enneagram types and instincts. But I shall just have to wait and figure it out. Perhaps I will bring it up to her while we are on break.

Thank you for another "test" @Turi :D
Strong preference for introversion... E/I 4:21 (though I definitely don't appear to be such an introvert in real life :D), quiet
S/N 6:14, conceptual, original
T/F 7:14, accepting
J/P 10:6, methodical
But on dichotomies tests I've always scored like this, sometimes with a slight preference for P over J. Hmmmm I don't know... :D
@Birbsofafeather I think I am enneagram 4w5 as well. It's the one I've gotten when I did a test for the first time and the result could be repeated. :)

Although I don't typically like testing by dichotomy, I think it can be a good starting place for people. Thanks @Turi. :) Anyways, I scored as quite the Extrovert, quite the Intuitive and Feeling preference, and VERY much with a perceiving preference. I scored as the most hardcore ENFP, no room for doubts.

The only thing that was interesting to me was that some of the Intuition options reminded me of Thinking a little. Particularly Ti. In general it's good, though.

I sometimes wish focus wasn't so much on, "How theoretical are you?" Because Thinking I find can be equally theoretical, especially Ti-doms. But I do notice people who have a preference for Sensing just tend to be more situational in how they apply said theories, whereas those with an Intuitive preference tend to be more... normative, I guess. Choosing to engage more with the abstract concept in and of itself, engaging with it as something outside of just what is. Whereas for those with a Sensing preference tend to see theories arising out of what is and the physical world where things play out.

Besides. Am I really theoretical? I'm not this highly academic person. I work with people. I like work more than school which is all about learning theories. But do I often find myself glossing over details, and when I'm learning or discussing stuff with people, I like it when they "get to the point", which to me is just the concept itself, the general idea/principle they are applying. But I think my husband is more theoretical to me, and he leads with Ti.

Also I like traditions. Like Christmas traditions. Like the little traditions I have with my family. They are lovely. Being traditional is a different matter. I feel like most people wouldn't refer to themselves as being "traditional" exactly, but hey. Maybe they would. Millennials already have their own collection of beliefs and whatnot that will be and in some circles already is the new "tradition". I suppose when that option comes up, I think, "What tradition?"

For part 1: 16 for extroverted and 9 for introverted

Part 3: 14 N and 6 S so definitely Intuitive
Part 4: 4A and 4B were 2 while the rest were 3

Part 5: Thinking
Part 6: all 2 except for 6D is critical
