I enjoy reading the posts on other INTJ and INTP personality types – we know we are few and far between. Because I like to take tests and to test systems, I have run through some of the online “mini” tests to evaluate accuracy. No scientific evaluation, just a fun thing to do, like taking my blood pressure with an automatic pump at the pharmacy. (I know the machine is just giving me a “ball park” reading, I just want to see where in the park the ball lands.)
Most people have not worked with a trained professional on the MBTI assessment, which is based on Jungian Theory. Nor do they know that other theorists (professionals) have further developed the MBTI assessment tool and interpretations and uses. The further development and applications are beyond my ability to explain – I am not trained in that area – however, I have been taken the assessments and worked with professionals to utilize the tools for a full, professional interpretation of the results.
The reliability and validity – two very important measures of any test – have increased significantly with the development of the tools (MBTI.) The written assessments and subsequent training I received was extensive. I incorporated it into my INTJ brain and now it is part of my “tool kit.”
Here is a link if anyone wants more information on the full test for personality typing and interpretation of the results. What you find for free on the internet? It lands you in the ballpark, at best.
Anyone else take the formal MBTI then test on the net with the free tests? What were your results?
