Somehow I managed to get INTJ on the Jung test and ESTP on the test here, although it was followed by INTJ :l
How can I find out since I'm new to this whole personality type thing?...I'm relying on you experts.

INTJ and ESTP are near-opposites. It's funny how you could get them both.

Fill in the typing questionnaire and take a cognitive functions test.

That is quite interesting. Mind telling us a bit about yourself?

Either you lead with Se and reject Ni or lead with Ni and reject Se.

I mean, I could see maybe getting ENTJ and ESTP mixed up, or ISTP and INTJ, but INTJ and ESTP is pretty odd.

Have you even read about the types, temperaments, or Jungian functions?

No...:p
I've just done the cognitive function test and this is what I got:

Based on your cognitive functions, your type is most likely:
Most Likely: INTJ
or Second Possibility: ENTJ
or Third Possibility: ENFJ


Your cognitive functions are, in order of development:
Ni - Te - Fe - Si - Ti - Se - Fi - Ne

Here are some quick descriptions of your functions, in order of preference:

The Introverted Intuition (Ni) function implicitly recognizes that one term can have multiple meanings, and allows the individual to disconnect themselves from the concept of 'objective truth'. This allows those with strong Ni to 'rewire' the connections that form a concept and test it from new and unique angles. This is why the Ni dominant types are often called analysts: they can pull apart an idea and test each individual piece to see how it changes the whole.

The Extroverted Thinking (Te) function imposes our own order on the world around us. Te structures the world in logical ways, ranging from the physical world (your desk, your office, etc) to concepts (creating 'flow charts' of ideas in your mind.)

The Extroverted Feeling (Fe) function is used when an individual acts in a considerate way to the feelings and beliefs of the people around them. Those with strong Fe can easily empathize with other people and is the most likely to be a 'people person.' Those with weak Fe may find themselves offending people unintentionally.

The Introverted Sensation (Si) function compares past events with current events. Si is associated with vivid memory recall and a reliance on experiential learning. Those with strong Si often prefer to take a 'hands on approach'. On the other hand, those with weak Si often do not benefit from interacting in that way.

The Introverted Thinking (Ti) function is used when an individual analyzes something, breaks it apart, and categorizes and defines its elements. This is the foundation of logical thinking. Ti is crucial in identifying logical inconsistencies and putting together logical arguments. Those with strong Ti usually have an ability to remain objective even when it may bother others.

The Extroverted Sensation (Se) function is associated with a vivid perception of the world, taking into account details that others may miss. Se is about being closely tuned to the world around you, and that usually translates into following 'gut impulses' and taking great pleasure in physical action. Those with weak Se may sometimes feel 'disconnected' from the world around them.

The Introverted Feeling (Fi) function attempts to find meaning in the world. In this sense, 'feeling' doesn't necessarily mean 'emotions' - it refers to the subjective and subtle sense of value within a situation. It is often associated with gut reactions about the fairness or goodness of an interaction. Those with strong Fi usually care less about objective facts and more about what's fair or right.

The Extroverted Intuition (Ne) function is oriented toward generating new possibilities. Ne is all about brainstorming - imagining a variety of possible outcomes and considering them all to be possibly true. Ne is associated with new ideas and innovative breakthroughs.


Oh, and never mind about the type thing - I'm 6w5.

I would think an INTJ would research these things in depth.

Those texts suck, btw.

Please go read some type descriptions and learn something about type, or tell us something about yourself.

Haha, unfortunately I was studying for exams so I didn't have time but I am going to read about it. Erm, well I'm introverted, shy, awkward, sensitive, logical, quiet, keeps my feelings inside, not many people know the 'real' me, not good at practical things, scientific, I enjoy solving problems, pessimistic, enjoy music, enjoy composing, I don't trust many people, depressed, lazy, always early for appointments but late for deadlines, I normally stay at home during holidays, I look towards the future to motivate myself, easily distracted, I enjoy performing but I'm always nervous, very competitive, easily jealous ...

Hmmm yeah you could be an INTJ. Or even ISTP. I don't think I'd go ESTP for you, given what you've said.

I wondered if you'd get around to making one of these threads. Here is the form to fill out here for typing (tests generally suck, and you can't always find out how the mind functions by examining a person's behavior): Personality Typing Form
