Myers-Briggs Can Suck It

In CategoryNavel Gazing

So I took some internet personality test the other day. I have taken these occasionally, as they filter around. It’s interesting. Sort of. I pretty much always get the same result – INTJ. Apparently, not very many people get that score. Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging

That seems to be code for You Are A Stubborn Reclusive Unromantic Judgey McJudgeyPants.  You spend too much time in your head and suck at social situations. That analysis is pretty much spot on, unfortunately. 

On the other hand, I tend to over analyze the questions, so maybe it’s not seeing the real me. Vague question phrasing irritates me. I don’t like not being able to answer every one decisively.

2) You like to be engaged in an active and fast-paced job 

Well, when I worked for money I did. It made the day go faster. But now that I am at home, I am overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I have to do every day and I spend a lot of time wishing I could just sit on my ass and watch teevee all day. I DON’T do that, but I WISH I could, so what is the answer – what I wish I could do or what I actually do? As soon as I get all my crap done, I am going to be the laziest person around. That is my personal goal. 

4) You feel involved when watching TV soaps 

What does that mean – involved? That I think I am in the show like a crazy person? No. On the other hand, I look forward to watching the Real Housewives of Anywhere with probably more glee than is entirely healthy. I went with NO, so the little man in the computer wouldn’t think I was nuts.

68) You get pleasure from solitary walks 

Um… ok, I like to be alone, if that’s what they are getting at. Not so much a fan of the walking. 

So, who knows. The analysis didn’t get to the part where being around me is so awesome and uplifting it makes people believe in unicorns, but they probably just ran out of room.

    Coming from another INTJ, I can laugh at you (us) about the fact that you are totally over-analyzing this — because that’s part of our personality! 😉

    And I actually don’t suck at social situations; I’m really pretty good at them. But I don’t love them. Most of the time, I’d much prefer to have coffee with ONE good friend or sit at home and read a book.

    I didn’t see the thing about tv soaps. I think you must’ve found some bad profiles! Check out the ones here, and you might like them better:
