People who have to mention that they are special, generally aren't.

Is this some reverse-psychology in action? ¬_____¬

He did say "generally"...... which is more or less so, since there's also Saul out there.

Just saying that semantically; I could potentially get stretched that far.

I'm special, but only in the euphemistic sense.

All they really wanted was headlines with which to label people.

Exactly. And that, in my humble opinion, is what rests in the fetid heart of each and every one of those personality test crowd/state-pleasers..

"Leave the psychometry to psychology: tests only in research context", says deranged student. Here's a headline. 8)

ISFJ.

Just got back from school, where at the end of the day we spent an hour or so in a classroom with a few other classes and a speaker talking about these personality types.


We took the tests before going into the classroom and here's mine:
Introverted 96%
Intuitive 86%
Thinking 80%
Judging 77%


obviously way out of balance!

anyways....... i was about to bring up a million points and ask a question, but now I don't feel like it. Says a lot......

Just have to add one thing. Arnold Schoenberg had to have been an INTJ. If not, then close. Maybe ENTJ. Developing a whole new system of music, and everything.....

other INTJs include Arnold Schwazenegger, CS Lewis and JFK.

random information i'd like to get out of my system.  ::)

I got a sheet of paper explaining the different types and it seems to me that taking a test to determine your type is a waste of time. Just reading the explanations is more accurate. On the first page of the thread, the last letter i got was P, and the test I just took gave me a J.  ::)
So, after reading the descriptions, the obvious category is simply a strong IN__, the last two being whatever mood I'm in- the most variable.

Also, I realized an important point here...... Intuitive types can't work very systematically- and this relates to composing as well. A lot of composers might be able to work with composing a little each day, steadily (i read in an interview that Penderecki does just that), but that's the Sensing type, and Intuitive types work from random bursts of inspiration, with long, dry periods in between.  :P
