We could all share our Myers-Briggs Personality Type results.
Might reveal something, or not.
I've taken it 2-3 times and always get branded INTP.

I had a look at that but it seems a bit complicated for this time of night. Also it asked me if I wanted to 'take the instrument', which seemed rather forward ;) But I'm keen to have a go sometime, thanks. I would be interested to see the results.

You'd have to be a truly dedicated Fortean to click through that many links to get to the MBPT test itself. I never found it. My type is FAIL.
Look on the bright side, if you did manage to successfully complete the click trail, you'd find they want you to fork out $50 for them to administer you the 'instrument'... Turns out my personality type is SADP.*

ISFJ here,

This is the result of a session at work though, not the link above.

This is an inspired thread, and I shall subject myself to the initiatory Myres-Briggsification soon (and report the predictable outcome later).

Big INTJ myself, consistent over time, although I believe "intuition" is simply the end result of a wet quantum computer extrapolating a lot of data and producing an answer like a rabbit out of a hat.

Add me to the INTJ camp. Like Carlos, I made that discovery at a work session.

Sorry that link labyrinth led to the spiel for 50 bucks. I just found that page and thought it explained the concept.
I've taken these things at work seminars too, and a couple of times online for free, and I think I had a paperback once with a test in it.

I have taken the Myers-Briggs test a few times and have always consistently scored as somewhere between INFJ and INTJ -which is to say the I'm sort of midpoint on the Feeling-Thinking scale (some sites express this as IN?J - which I rather like). So I'm cuddlier than some of you cold-hearted bastards!

I'm not sure how significant this is in terms of Fortean interests though, as I do know some other people who score INFJ and INTJ who take no interest at all in the unexplained.

I looked at all the lil boxes and nothing really fit me, no mention of annoying, daft, quick tempered, unsympathetic, but good sense of humour :p

Back to Myers-Briggs for a mo - ENFP. Every time I've ever taken it. So that makes me odd :).

I've heard that Myers Briggs isn't highly regarded in the scientific community, being seen as pseudoscience at best. Time for a thread on that?
