I seem to get a different result on this one each time

ENFJ? Hrmrrmrmr.

ENFJ- The Teacher
You scored 90% I to E, 36% N to S, 19% F to T, and 47% J to P!
Your type is known as the teacher, or the educating mentor. You also belong to the larger group, called idealists. You tend to bring out the best in other people. You lead without seeming to do so. People are naturally drawn to you. You expect the very best from people which takes the form of enthusiastic encouragement which is so charming that people try their best not to disappoint you. You share your personality type with 3% of the population.
You need to feel a deep and meaningful connection to your romantic partners, and go to great lengths to understand and please your mate. Harmony is vitally important to you, and you often put others’ needs before your own. You have a pretty thin skin and are easily hurt. Although you strive for harmony, when your values or ethics are violated, you can be very emotional, confrontational, and even punishing. However, you are very insightful about the underlying cause of conflicts, and an excellent communicator, so you have the tools to bring about a quick and peaceful resolution as long as you can keep control of your facilities. You want to be appreciated for your thoughtfulness and compassion. You need your partner to make a real effort to get to know you. Above all, you need to be able to express your feelings and have them taken seriously.

  1. No matter what stage of life, I always get ENFJ. I would have taken you for more of an INFJ, but that’s probably because I only know you via computer.

  2. The Big Test
    There’s a brief but amusing section about the Meyers Briggs test in <a
    href=
    “http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0374527512”
    >The Big Test
    which I don’t have on hand, but which basically says the same as this extract from <a href=
    “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator”
    >the wikipedia entry:

    The MBTI has not been validated by double-blind tests, in which participants accept reports written for other participants, and are asked whether or not the report suits them, and thus may not qualify as a scientific assessment. The MBTI has also been criticised on the two measures of any psychometric test: validity and reliability. Test retest reliability is considered to be low, with test takers who retake the test often being assigned a different type. Validity has been questioned on theoretical grounds.

    The (un)reliability bit (in the technical statistical sense of the word “reliable”), is what you’re running into, as do very many people.

    1. Re: The Big Test
      This is why I only take double-blind validated personality tests, such as OK Cupid’s “Which hairstyle of Jennifer Love Hewitt are you?” I’m #3 hairstyle, FYI.

      1. Re: The Big Test
        Personality tests, for me, mostly belong as livejournal paste jobs. I’m sure that some of them if used judiciously by smart people can be helpful, but the widespread use of things like the MTBI and MMPI is probably not for the best.
        I’ve never looked at her hair.

      2. Re: The Big Test

        You are short and get right to the point. You consider yourself laidback, but are not afraid to stand up when provoked. You crave attention, sometimes even the wrong kind.
        You are Jennifer Love Hewitt Hairstyle #3.
