I think this is a fun test. I’m sure a lot of you have taken it at least once before but now you get to post your results here at TWOTA in order for us fellow members to generalize and make assumptions about your character!
I’m ENFP -** The Champion**
[quote]Your type is known as the Champion type, which is part of the larger group called idealists. Nothing occurs that does not have some deep and ethical significance in your eyes. You see life as an exciting drama. You are very charismatic, yet tend to be too harsh on yourself for not being as genuine as you think you should be. 3% of the population shares your type.
As a romantic partner, you need to talk about what is going on in your life. You are a strong supporter for your partner’s efforts to grow and change and be happy. You need to feel that same support from your partner. Expressive, optimistic, and curious, you are eager to enjoy new experiences with your partner, whom you wish to be your confidant and soul mate, as well as play mate. You are uncomfortable sharing negative emotion, though, and tend to withdraw from confrontation and process your feelings privately. You feel most loved when your partner appreciates your creativity, accepts your uniqueness, and sees you as the compassionate person you are. You need to hear your partner tell you how much you mean to them and would love if they did thoughtful spontaneous things to demonstrate it.[/quote]
I’m actually surprised at how accurate the description is. I’m definitely an idealist.
EDIT: Edited the title to get some replies
I forced myself through half the test. I would have quit but figured I’d have no reason to reply then. I just find so many of the “either or” choices to not be so mutually exclusive. I can have both depending on the situation dammit.
Anyway I got this:
[quote]Your type is best summed up by the word “counselor”, which belongs to the larger group of idealists. Only 2% of the population share your type. You are so empathic that you often know what others need before they know themselves. You are a complex person who can deal with complicated issues and people, almost prefer to, as you love problem solving. You can be something of an idealist or perfectionist, and should try to take yourself a little less seriously.
You are a supportive and insightful romantic partner, encouraging your mate to have dreams and work hard to make those dreams come true. Because you are so creative, you have a wealth of ideas to help them toward those goals. You need harmony so much that you are driven to resolve conflict quickly, as long as the terms don’t violate your ethics. You feel the most appreciated when your partner admires your creativity, trusts your inspirations, and respects your values. It is also vitally important that your partner be open and emotionally available - in other words, that they be willing to share themselves completely.[/quote]
I think some of it is spot on. Other parts not so much.
Yeah most questions are difficult to answer and then there is the environment. With people I know I’m obviously more frontal and less gentle. But I’m more gentle with people I don’t know. Which should I vote? That kind of thing.
Still, I actually made another one of these tests and got ENFP as well. Hey you haven’t posted your letters Alex. I don’t have a list of the titles so I don’t know what a “Counselor” is.
Hey Snowoman, you’re supposed to post your result to the test
I actually took the Left/Right Brained tests on that site you mentioned and I’m happy I got Right Brained in all three I tend to forget the reason why I don’t usually get hands on is because I’m a professional procrastinator (no, you don’t have anything on me whoever you are!) and not because I’m not artistically predisposed by nature. I like to believe there is a great artist within me but I’m a slacker at heart, still calling me Left Brained is one of the worst insults for me. In great part because I’ve always been good at maths and physics and that stuff…
Well I closed the page so no idea what the letters are… I didn’t realise they’re important.
You’re right, it’s all questions you answer very different depending on the situation. The one thing it sure did get right is the “other half support” type thing, but I actually thought it wouldn’t pick up on that when I forced myself to answer some questions with just what I’d “generally” do instead of what I’d do in more personal approaches. So kudos to the test I guess
Counselor is INFJ according to wikipedia.
