Catie: Let's pay a visit to the Statue of Limitations.

Our latest interest has been the Myers-Briggs test.

Actually, the fake Myers-Briggs test since... we aren't willing to pay $30.00 just to have a computer define us with four letters.


I'm sure pretty much everyone I know has already taken it.  I'd taken it before, too, but I couldn't remember my letters.  It's kind of funny to read an in depth description of each personality type because it's a little uncanny.

Anyway, we took our free test here: There are probably better ones, but this one worked pretty well.

For a more in depth description of each type, we went here:

In case you've never taken it, there are four categories: Introverted/Extroverted, iNtuitive/Sensing, Thinking/Feeling, Judgding/Perceiving.  That breaks down to I/E, N/S, T/F, J/P.

In every category, you're rated higher in one or the other based on how you answer the questions and that gives you your letters.

Ben is an ISTJ: Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging.  And, apparently, according to our picture there, is "doing what should be done".  He'd be pleased to hear that.. let's NOT tell him. ;)

I'm an ISFP: Introverted (we're an outgoing pair, aren't we..), Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving.  Yes, apparently I see a lot of stuff, but I never share.  I don't know what that means.  Except that maybe I don't like to share... but I don't think that's true.  Until Ben tries to eat my chocolate.


Anyway, we think everybody should take the test and post their letters in the comments because we want to know them!  If you know them without taking the test, that's fine, but tell us your letters!  We're interested.  We've even been taking the tests FOR some of you and we've got you all figured out... That's right.

You can read our "portraits" here:


Catie: ISFP

Tell us your letters!   Do you realize how long we've been here?  We probably don't even remember what any of you are LIKE.

We need the reminder so we'll recognize you when we get home.  Otherwise, we'll see you at the airport and be like, "You LOOK like my mom, but my mom is Feeling, not Thinking and she's MUCH more Extroverted..."

And you wouldn't want that.

  1. I took this and it was so inaccurate I can't even post it! I am not extremely competitive and entrepreneurial! But yours and Ben's are spot on...

  2. I think you need to be fixed.

  3. Mine are AJRP: Aggressive, Judgmental, Repressed, and Paranoid.

    I think the test is fixed.

  4. well, I did it for reals, I am ENFP.
    Dominant: Extraverted Intuition
    Auxiliary: Introverted Feeling
    Tertiary: Extraverted Thinking
    Inferior: Introverted Sensing

    I think it was pretty good, I don't know for sure. I think maybe I'm a little different than I use to be, so I had to actually think about my answers, instead of just picking what I think I would pick. ha, weird. I liked it though, it was fun!

  5. I've asked you to fix me, but nooooo.

    Ok, I plugged in random numbers and got this:
    Extroverted (E) 50% Introverted (I) 50%
    Sensing (S) 63.33% Intuitive (N) 36.67%
    Feeling (F) 73.08% Thinking (T) 26.92%
    Judging (J) 55.88% Perceiving (P) 44.12%

    ESFJ - "Seller". Most sociable of all types. Nurturer of harmony. Outstanding host or hostesses.

  6. Well.. after further investigation, we think the test we posted sucks. We took a new test and it is better. You should take it instead. It's not so lame.

  7. okay, it changed to ESFP

  8. the test assumes mutual exclusivity. I am not mutually exclusive.

  9. I took the new test and it came out in binary. Is that bad?

  10. Okay, that one IS better. It says I'm an ESFJ and here is a description.
    I don't know if it's completely true, but it's pretty accurate.

  11. I took the other test, and though the test asks questions in a way I like better, the questions are too dumb.

  12. I forgot to mention, I'm a mastermind, for what that's worth.

  13. Hmmmm... I got INFP, heavy on the intuitive and light on the perceiving part. So I am Performing Noble Service to Aid Society. Some days.

  14. How you find ideas for articles, I am always lack of new ideas for articles. Some tips would be great
