I don’t know… maybe it’s just that the Intelligence Type Quiz that I did wasn’t exactly scientific… though the result was probably correct. The value of an Internet blog-meme pop-quiz is truthfully dubious, but my newfound knowledge that I’m an INTP must be worth something. Everyone’s always spewing these four-letter explanations that totally define them, so it must be of value, this whole MBTI thing based on Jungian psychology. Well, it’s got to be better than, “Hey, baby, what’s your sign?” Today I finally broke when I saw somebody’s type listed in their sidebar, so I went and figured it out. I’ve had lots of people tell me, “Oh, you’re probably a ….” but I promptly forgot whatever they said, because it meant so much to me to know. I always figured that in order to have a personality type, you had to have a personality, and was always a little nervous about confirming I didn’t have one. But everyone else seems to know theirs, and I even found a link to job listings that give preference to specific MBTI types. Sheesh. But now I know.

The quick test that told me “My Bloginality is INTP!!!” was far too brief to be trusted, so I completed a much more thorough questionnaire which told me:

Your Type is
Introverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
22 75 25 22

I’ve just started reading a little bit about just what the heck an INTP is supposed to be like, and a lot of it makes sense. Must read more, then start a club… once I figure out which four letters we INTPs are supposed to be prejudiced against so I know who to ban. Too bad Albert Einstein is dead, but there’s still time for Bob Newhart to join. Gotta finish reading up on the INTP Rulebook, but provisionally, anybody wanna join?
