What is this “Personality” of which you speak?

Seen via James Nicoll‘s blog: the old Meyers-Briggs thing with a snide twist.

It turns out I am:


Almost Perfect- INFP
40% Extraversion, 100% Intuition, 40% Thinking, 46% Judging

So, you want to make the world a better place? Too bad it’s never gonna happen.
Of all the types, you have to be one of the hardest to find fault in. You have a selfless and caring nature. You’re a good listener and someone who wants to avoid conflict. You genuinely desire to do good.
Of course, these all add up to an incredibly overpowered conscience which makes you feel guilty and responsible when anything goes wrong. Of course, it MUST be your fault EVERYTIME.
Though you’re constantly on a mission to find the truth, you have no use for hard facts and logic, which is a source of great confusion for those of us with brains. Despite this, in a losing argument, you’re not above spouting off inaccurate fact after fact in an effort to protect your precious values.
You’re most probably a perfectionist, which in this case, is a bad thing. Any group work is destined to fail because of your incredibly high standards.
Disregard what I said before. You’re just easy to find fault in as everyone else!
Luckily, you’re generally very hard on yourself, meaning I don’t need to waste my precious time insulting you. Instead, just find all your own faults and insult yourself.

The Brutally Honest Personality Test written by UltimateMaster on OkCupid Free Online Dating.


Once upon a time I was INTJ with an accent on the J. If these tests are accurate (and how could they not be?) I must be a lot more warm and fuzzy now. Of course the last time I took one of these tests was twenty-some years ago, and the test was administered to me by a friend who was mad at me because I’d laughed involuntarily when she claimed Jim Morrison (the Lizard King) was a feminist. Should I trust the snide robot of today or the annoyed friend of yesteryear? I’d rather just sit and think about New Hampshire. (This one, not this one.)

  1. This version of the test rocks.

    I’m usually an INTJ also. They may have refined this test during those twenty years. 😉
