Myers-Briggs

Post by Mercurio on Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:12 am

I was clearing out some cupboards and came across my Myers-Briggs report from a few years ago.

Have any of you done it? If so, what were you? It may help me to understand why you're all so wrong about things Wink

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

There you are Grumps, lifted from Wikipedia in true Mac fashion!

Following on in that vein Blue, I guess this now makes you an expert

Well Merc, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

I did one a couple of years ago. I've forgotten my exact combination, but basically it said I am a nurturer who can be rather rigid.

Now Blue, you know that is not true, you only have to look at how Mary does her fantasy league picks, clear case of ilu and lust

My mate basically does them for a living, keeps trying to get me to do one but quite frankly I'm too scared of what the result would be.

Is that the test where all the ink patterns look like vaginas butterflies?

There's nothing to be scared of. It just determines what you prefer and helps people to understand you better. Of the 16 possibilites, none of them are damning.

I think I did one when I worked for the NHS briefly (they are very keen on wasting money on that sort of claptrap) but can't for the life of me remember what the result was so it obviously didn't make much of an impact on me.

Can't remember if it was called Myers-Briggs but I have done something along these lines last year and just dug out the results as follows:

ESTJ - "Administrator". Much in touch with the external environment. Very responsible. Pillar of strength. 8.7% of total population"

Not sure if that's accurate or not! It certainly doesn't match my personality traits from my 20's but is a pretty accurate account of my life now.

My book reckons you're 19.2% of the population but that was based on programmes in the 3 years 2005 to 2007.

Now, let me see what else it says about you . . .

If you find out Merc please let me know because that was the only bit I could find.

ESTJ

Overriding need: to maintain stability and order

Seen by others: as hearty, open, direct, boisterous, sometimes abrasive and confrontational

Sees self: as simple (as we all do Wink) and straightforward, outspoken

Works best: when in charge and can ensure that everything runs like clockwork

Works least well: when there is ambiguity, constant change and no access to reliable data

As team member: contributes hard work; eagle eye for waste; concern for deadlines and practical details; ability to set up and implement systems

Leads by: confident down-to-earth approach with emphasis on respect for seniority, and proper systems which allow for careful planning and prioritising. Sets clear, measurable targets, especially in financial area. May over-supervise on details and overlook the need to consult and involve staff.

Ideal organisation: respected long-term presence; has clear hierarchy, rewards loyalty and offers whole career; preserves and observes its traditions

More to follow later.

I'd say in general that is an accurate account of me. Especially the simple bit

Now, let me see what else it says about you . . .

Unlikely to be 19% of general population as there are 16 types and my understanding is that no one type is dominant (although some are more common than others). However, if the test is focused on a specific population eg all police officers you will expect to see certain types more frequently. eg I would guess more ESTJ's in the police.

If I remember rightly I am INTP. Not looked at it for several years but it can be a helpful tool if you have the time to study the types and reflect on your interactions with others.

It was made up of 4,640 participants of ASK Europe programmes.

The ESTJ group is the most common (19.2%) followed by ISTJ (14.9%) and ENTJ (10.9%).

Your INTP group was 5.5% and my ISTP group was 4.8%.

The 'genius' group of INFJ was lowest with 1.5%.

I just quickly took an online version of the Myers Briggs. I'm sure that professionals who make use of these tests would charge a lot of money and the tests would (possibly) be a lot more reliable so I take a quick, free, online version of this test with a large pinch of salt...

But for what it's worth, I came out as ESTJ also (though the 'E' component was marginal and the other 3 components all around 40-50%)
