I always test as INFP but I don't relate to the description at all. I think it is the same problem I always run into with these sort of quizzes: I think too many of the comparisons are essentially flawed, as they set up false dichotomies. I want an extra button: Agree/ Disagree/ Speak Any English?

I always have chalked that up to my being a witch in the societal sense as well. Neither fish nor fowl.

Hiya Aurelian!  Yeah, I *knew* I had done this already somewhere here!   Yup you did it!  Thought I'd bump it, enjoy everyone. ;)

INFJ here and still amazed at all the other INFJs on this forum (although I know most people probably aren't surprised based off the personality description). I don't feel so "rare" anymore and that's a good thing  :witch2:

on this one I got;
 
INTJ
Introvert(67%)  iNtuitive(38%)  Thinking(62%)  Judging(33%)
  • You have distinct preference of Introversion over Extraversion (67%)
  • You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
  • You have distinct preference of Thinking over Feeling (62%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (33%

I have gotten ISTJ before as well. It is interesting to see how predominant INTJ is in our community!

INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glass world where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities.

INFP children often exhibit this in a 'Calvin and Hobbes' fashion, switching from reality to fantasy and back again. With few exceptions, it is the NF child who readily develops imaginary playmates (as with Anne of Green Gables's "bookcase girlfriend"--her own reflection) and whose stuffed animals come to life like the Velveteen Rabbit and the Skin Horse:

"...Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand..." (the Skin Horse)

INFPs have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything. Even for the most unlovable the INFP is wont to have pity.

Rest you, my enemy,

Slain without fault,

Life smacks but tastelessly

Lacking your salt!

Stuck in a bog whence naught

May catapult me,

Come from the grave, long-sought,

Come and insult me!

--(Steven Vincent Benet,
Elegy for an Enemy
)

Their extreme depth of feeling is often hidden, even from themselves, until circumstances evoke an impassioned response:

"I say, Queequeg! Why don't you speak? It's I--Ishmael." But all remained still as before. ... Something must have happened. Apoplexy!

... And running up after me, she caught me as I was again trying to force open the door. ... "Have to burst it open," said I, and was running down the entry a little, for a good start, when the landlady caught me, again vowing I should not break down her premises; but I tore from her, and with a sudden bodily rush dashed myself full against the mark.--(Melville,
Moby Dick
)

Of course, not all of life is rosy, and INFPs are not exempt from the same disappointments and frustrations common to humanity. As INTPs tend to have a sense of failed competence, INFPs struggle with the issue of their own ethical perfection, e.g., performance of duty for the greater cause. An INFP friend describes the inner conflict as not good versus bad, but on a grand scale, Good vs. Evil. Luke Skywalker in Star Wars depicts this conflict in his struggle between the two sides of "The Force." Although the dark side must be reckoned with, the INFP believes that good ultimately triumphs.

Some INFPs have a gift for taking technical information and putting it into layman's terms. Brendan Kehoe's Zen and the Art of the Internet is one example of this "de-jargoning" talent in action.

(INFP stands for Introvert, iNtuitive, Feeling, Perceiving and represents individual's preferences in four dimensions characterising personality type, according to Jung's and Briggs Myers' theories of personality type.)

I love this thread. I suspected the forum would be well populated with intjs and infjs given the introverted intuition function. I wonder if they are sensors on here. And also, I'm wondering if one reason witches have been persecuted so often throughout history is that they tend to be a little out of the norm, anyway? Makes for a good scapegoat.

I scored as INTJ many years ago, it turned into INTP, and now I am ENTP with only a very slight preference towards the Extroversion and the Thinking parts (so I guess I['m a switch?) I'd say so far, this development is accurate

Yes, I was not very familiar with this, but I found the description of my score to be ridiculously accurate.

Yes, your hypothesis is interesting and appears to be correct, Aurelian...

 

I'm another INFJ (have always tested that way over the years) and although we're 1-3% of the general population we're currently at 35% on Trad Witch!

 

Introverts Unite!

 

(and it's a very accurate description of me. Many people have a hard time grasping that I'm an introvert because when the mood is right I can be very social... and then go home and CRASH. I need to be alone for days after intense interaction).

huh I got ENTJ for the first time ever

 

I have scored as ENFJ many many times before.  Guess I'm kicking those feels to the curb a bit, my plan is working  ;)

 

In any case, I scored 62% Extraversion.  No surprise to people who know me in person.  I've never scored lower than that for extraversion.

 

ENTJ:

 

Extraverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging

 

"I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?"

ENTJs have a natural tendency to marshall and direct. This may be expressed with the charm and finesse of a world leader or with the insensitivity of a cult leader. The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way... "I make these little plans that really don't have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out." While "compelled" may not describe ENTJs as a group, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively and to make those plans reality is a common theme for NJ types.

 

ENTJs are often "larger than life" in describing their projects or proposals. This ability may be expressed as salesmanship, story-telling facility or stand-up comedy. In combination with the natural propensity for filibuster, our hero can make it very difficult for the customer to decline.

TRADEMARK: -- "I'm really sorry you have to die." (I realize this is an overstatement. However, most Fs and other gentle souls usually chuckle knowingly at this description.)

 

ENTJs are decisive. They see what needs to be done, and frequently assign roles to their fellows. Few other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often leading the charge) into the mouth of hell. When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may unleash an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.

Interesting! My daughter is an ENTJ. Introverted intuition is the auxiliary function for that type. I wonder if that's where the magic happens. ;) My daughter is the coolest person, by the way. She's very unique but not as much of a weirdo as me. Lol.

INTJ
Introvert(72%)  iNtuitive(66%)  Thinking(9%)  Judging(3%)
  • You have distinct preference of Introversion over Extraversion (72%)
  • You have distinct preference of Intuition over Sensing (66%)
  • You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (9%)
  • You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (3%)

My result change with my mood. Sometimes, I score as INFJ Sometimes as INTP but it is always a small percentage either way. I guess that means I am flexible in those areas. After reading the description, I think I relate most to INTP.

ENFP

Extravert(9%) iNtuitive(38%) Feeling(75%) Perceiving(16%)

 

I've prior knowledge of psychological tests and find them interesting.But I've taken this one at a different life stage and scored differently. That being said, I take them as a bit of fun.

They may have indicators of core values, but to me because I'm very feeling/emotional driven depending on the variables in my life I answer quizzes like this differently. At the moment I'm just out of a long term relationship. So my emphasis is on not isolating and engaged with others outside of myself. I'm sociable but need a lot of solitary time also. In fact a higher proportion is spent alone. The test is indicating higher extroversion, because they're the traits I need at the moment, to make life easier.

Likewise, if I were feeling low in my mood and I took this test, I tend towards disengaging and find social aspects draining.Thus, introversion may be higher.

However, that being said the analytical side of my brain is always working overtime. I'm analysing the f**king test for flip sake.

So I'll score my own results here.... Extroverted/introverted...., Creative/analytical, feeling/perceiver

 

And I'll add, will arguing against categorisation of myself whenever possible.Just for the sake of it!!!! So maybe I'm nonconformist at times also ????????????

INTJ

Introvert(62%)  iNtuitive(47%)  Thinking(62%)  Judging(28%)
  • You have distinct preference of Introversion over Extraversion (62%)
  • You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (47%)
  • You have distinct preference of Thinking over Feeling (62%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (28%)

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know.

INTJs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.

INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause to an INFJ; both perfectionism and disregard for authority may come into play, as INTJs can be unsparing of both themselves and the others on the project. Anyone considered to be "slacking," including superiors, will lose their respect -- and will generally be made aware of this; INTJs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. On the other hand, they do tend to be scrupulous and even-handed about recognizing the individual contributions that have gone into a project, and have a gift for seizing opportunities which others might not even notice.

In the broadest terms, what INTJs "do" tends to be what they "know". Typical INTJ career choices are in the sciences and engineering, but they can be found wherever a combination of intellect and incisiveness are required (e.g., law, some areas of academia). INTJs can rise to management positions when they are willing to invest time in marketing their abilities as well as enhancing them, and (whether for the sake of ambition or the desire for privacy) many also find it useful to learn to simulate some degree of surface conformism in order to mask their inherent unconventionality.

Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ's Achilles heel. While they are capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that make them so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead them in interpersonal situations.

This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. :-) This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete', paralleling that of many Fs -- only instead of expecting inexhaustible affection and empathy from a romantic relationship, the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.

Probably the strongest INTJ assets in the interpersonal area are their intuitive abilities and their willingness to "work at" a relationship. Although as Ts they do not always have the kind of natural empathy that many Fs do, the Intuitive function can often act as a good substitute by synthesizing the probable meanings behind such things as tone of voice, turn of phrase, and facial expression. This ability can then be honed and directed by consistent, repeated efforts to understand and support those they care about, and those relationships which ultimately do become established with an INTJ tend to be characterized by their robustness, stability, and good communications.

INFJ

 

I've known this since high school and any time I retake the quiz I end up with the same results. I'm a very typical INFJ in every way. I'm also married to an ENTP, which makes our household very interesting!
