Somewhere else on PerC, somebody posted some weird psych tests. I took the first one, and got this:

Verbally and mentally fluid, you are refreshing and illuminating to those around you. This is occasionally somewhat discounted by the obvious pleasure that you take in exercising your mental acuity. Although generally peaceful you can often take a verbally aggressive tact in relations with the world, which can often be misunderstood by those around you. Innovative in the extreme, you can often think yourself right out of the correct answer to a given problem. Many times you are referred to as your own worst enemy. You tire very quickly of routine and so make poor clerks or administrative help. You also have no respect for authority and little patience for those you regard as inferior, most especially those in charge. Experimentation is your watchword and can occasionally lead to experience for its own sake and shallow decadence. Your thought can sometimes be scattered and disconnected."
which, after reading to my wife, she said was surprisingly descriptive of me... weird... anyway, I'm curious what others in the ISFP tribe will come up with? Wanna take a super trippy psych test? Try here:

test

:crazy:

You are in a perpetual quest to find the new, the exciting. Emotionally volatile, you are known for sudden changes of opinion, of appreciation, and behavior. Following rules and established methods is difficult for you and the difficulties of higher education are usually quite daunting. Knowledge is best gained through an intimate association with the matter at hand. Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavor. Emotions come and go without a strong understanding of their causes. They are unexpected guests in an otherwise placid landscape. You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you. You hate to be predictable, at all costs. Rarely verbally effusive, you can at times feel as if your feelings are too deep for words. You are very observant, but rarely express these observations to others.

Well damn, the test itself made no sense but the results are pretty accurate.
Underlined the only parts I didn't fully agree with.

Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack.

Amazingly accurate except for the underlined part.

Hmm I got this:

Your power comes from an ability to sense how things might be and to proclaim this possibility with a great force and willingness to act. You have a tendency to be romantic, and can be an idealist. This sense of how the world can be is often expressed with self-deprecatory humor. Because of your need to address the immediacy of the moment, you may not think things through to their logical end, relying instead on a feeling for how a situation SHOULD end. You need to be liked and appreciated by others, although your attention often wanders. Sometimes you neglect old friends in favor of a new or exciting acquaintance. You have a real difficulty being alone. Often you will seem to know how to handle a situation without exactly knowing HOW you know this. Your thoughts are often shallow. While in the excitement of the moment you can obsess about a task at hand. If it should become rote and unexciting, however, it can be dropped just as quickly.

I underlined the only parts that describe me. Then again, I'm sleepy and might have chosen more accurately had I not been. I arbitrarily chose A or B for a number of the questions because those questions made no sense to me at the moment.

I started to do that, but realized that I could arbitrarily pick, based on my own ideas of which would best represent my mind picture... Maybe take it another time, when you are less tired and more patient. ;-)

So far, the test has been surprisingly accurate for most people. What I find interesting is the variety of answers. I mean, they are all different--yet accurate. I honestly wasn't expecting either. My wife (INTP) also took the test, and hers is completely different from all those here, and fits her very well--only a couple statements were iffy...

Okay, I took it again, and it was so accurate this time:

You are in a perpetual quest to find the new, the exciting. Emotionally volatile, you are known for sudden changes of opinion, of appreciation, and behavior. Following rules and established methods is difficult for you and the difficulties of higher education are usually quite daunting. Knowledge is best gained through an intimate association with the matter at hand. Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavor.

That's the weirdest test I have ever taken :shocked::

This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle.

The first one pretty accurate, except the sports part. I like sports but don't quite play it now.

:bored:

I would say that is mostly true. I dislike people who constantly day dream all the time and do nothing real. I enjoy action. Though I think I'm much more outwardly goofy and humorous than this suggests.

As per the other posts, I underlined the part that didn't apply. As for not being monogamous, I love to be in a monogamous relationship but as of now I'm waiting for someone really good to come along and I would rather explore my options

It's a weird but interesting test :wink:

The bold parts kinda true for me. Though there is some part that doesn't really me. But generally it's true
Interesting quiz :D

Took the test twice and it was wrong both times. I liked how it was weird and even scary in a way. So I applaud this test for entertainment purposes as it was nice to experience something different. But the questions made no sense to me and I think I made my choices randomly. I don't understand questions like "Has the nightmare begun?". Really? Thats a yes/no question and I'm supposed to choose a shape?

Yeah, it either what means yes, what means no, what feels like the answer to "Has the nightmare begun?" or what feels like "Has the nightmare begun?"


Entertaining but far from spot on, they avoided embellishing on points seemingly to avoid being wrong.

Blustering through the world with the finesse of a thunderstorm, you are a natural leader, a creator of consensus. You will often plan out the future in deliberate and at times frustrating detail. This ability to create and to plan is sometimes expressed as a facility for the telling of tall tales.Your friends often find themselves assigned tasks or roles within the group. This can be very useful when action is called for and equally annoying when the idea at hand is rest and relaxation. When challenged, however, you can become cold and argumentative. Your understanding of the world is deliberate and well thought out. Your emotion comes in two varieties, either restrained and sincere, or else melodramatic and loud and usually inauthentic. Affection for you is best expressed through action, by doing things for the people you care about. This need to always be proactive can lead you to feel that there is no end to the trouble in your life.
Bold is correct but could be said about anyone (every thinks they plan and deliberate, I take it to the next level).
Underlined is outright wrong.

Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on.


This individual is highly desireous of attention and admiration and is attentive to interactions as a means of gauging this in others. Desire to be seen as special is more important than the desire to be good. An understanding of the emotional state of others gives this individual a sense of control. Is impressed by the new. Best method of entry is to appeal to individual's 'strong' understanding of therapist's state of mind.

Not only is this client finding little success in life, he or she has let this frustration express itself in a near paralyzing inability to make decisions. Consequently, stress is foremost, and the knowledge of this situation is a self-reinforcing problem.

You have a poetic sensibility and an ability to see beyond the day to day. You often seem to be living in a higher realm, or to be not-of-this-earth. Occasionally you imagine interior lives for friends and associates that are near-complete fabrications based on your fears or hopes for the future. You are often not aware of your own feelings. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and because of this are often disappointed. Despite what can sometimes be a destructive inward-turning anger, you are very gentle. You are sometimes a bit out of touch with the ebb and flow of modern life. If your behavior is out of synch with your moral values, a severe psychic disturbance can result. Because connectivity is so important to you, you can become quiet and sulky if you feel that others around do not understand your point of view.
Sounds pretty Fi driven.

Cool test! My result was somewhat accurate. I also read some others that would definitely apply to me. In my result, just replace the logic stuff with...er... dreamy stuff. Underlines don't apply.

Thoughtful to the extreme, you are often obsessed with perfection and the rules governing your own personal interests. Your world is black and white. You love to work within a logical system, such as language, computer programming, or mathematics. Manipulating a system that can be completely understood is a distinct pleasure to you, because of your confidence in the underlying veracity of your belief system. Because of your appreciation for logic and order, those who speak or think in a sloppy manner are apt to generate more than their share of wrath. Although very amiable, you are not drawn to friendships out of a sense of personal need. You are just as happy by yourself with a good book or puzzle. Because you are so involved with thought, you will on occasion have difficulty dealing with the day-to-day problems of a normal life. Taking out the trash, doing the dishes, these are often left until the last possible moment, if at all.

I got this :laughing: Ehm, cannot really identify with much of it! But I like how crazy and scary the test seems, and sort of wonder if any of it has anything to do with anything :crazy: I hope it doesn't, that would be too scary! *crosses fingers*

Very interesting test, although bizarre at times. My reaction was to look at each shape and interpret it in my own ways then chose which applied when compared to the question. Anyway, here's the result:

"You are in a perpetual quest to find the new, the exciting. Emotionally volatile, you are known for sudden changes of opinion, of appreciation, and behaviour. Following rules and established methods is difficult for you and the difficulties of higher education are usually quite daunting. Knowledge is best gained through an intimate association with the matter at hand. Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavour. Emotions come and go without a strong understanding of their causes. They are unexpected guests in an otherwise placid landscape. You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you. You hate to be predictable, at all costs. Rarely verbally effusive, you can at times feel as if your feelings are too deep for words. You are very observant, but rarely express these observations to others."

I think it sounds accurate but perhaps a little extreme... Maybe I just interpret things too strongly? Also, "Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavour." I'm not sure I understand what it means.

Fond of tradition, but attached more to the joy of human interaction, you are often a beacon of hope to those members of society who have lost faith or who are in need of succor. You are often emotional, and this emotionality is rarely held in check. Kind and helping by nature, when affronted you will explode, and just as suddenly when the pain has passed return to normalcy again. On occasion this quick and vibrant emotionality is translated into a life on the stage or screen. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, but can sometimes be left confused and uncertain in times of stress or when tough decisions must be made. You avoid conflict, tending to stay out of trouble in hopes that the group will benefit most from this behavior. Because you have trouble putting your own needs first, you will be put in much stress if you find yourself in an unequal relationship, one in which your partner is not as giving as you are.

I've taken this test before and there are some others as well, the results are always different yet quite accurate at times. It's quite a strange test I wonder how it works

Hmm. I'm confused. This is somewhat true, but not all. :crazy:
