we are all unique human beings, created from God. All of us are special and wonderful in our own way. Our minds, our thoughts, our emotions, our subconsious, our personalities, our dreams, our desires are unique and special

when we think that there has never ever been in the history of the universe, anyone like everyone of us, and that there never ever will be anyone like us, we are struck with awe and amazement at how special and unique all of us are.

Yet how many of us, spend the time and effort to know ourselves. To truely know ourselves. to know who we are and why we do the thinsg that we do????

Instead we spend our times in external things. We watch tv. we play sports. we obsess about chess. yet how much time do we spend mediating and thinking abpout the essential us, the unique irreplacable individual that exists only in this time and space.

I have decided to spend time thinking about me and my personality and why I do the things that I do and what drives me. I want to understand myself better. I suggest that others do that too

One of the most credible and popular indicator of personality types is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator based on the theory of Carl Jung. this URL tells more about it

there is also a free online test, that will tell you what MBTI type you are and gives the meaning of your personality

That means I am an E(xtroverted) iN(tuitive) T(hinking) J(udging) person, as opposed to an intoverted, sensing, feeling, perceiving person.

This is the psychological profile of an ENTJ. what are you?

CG Jung has to be one of the most overrated psychoanalysts of all time, and I'm including Dr Phil in that list. ;) I mean the collective unconscious what was THAT all about? I think Freud was closer to the mark, but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. ;)

MBTI is an internationally accepted and recognised standard.It is a mainstream testing standard, which is based on Jung's work

this test tells you what your chances are of being murdered

https://www.rateyourrisk.org.secure.moses.com/murder.html

this test tells you how likely is it for you to be beaten, raped, or robbed

https://www.rateyourrisk.org.secure.moses.com/beaten.html

please please take care chess friends if you are in the high risk group. Do not expose yourself to murder, or rape or being beaten.

Observe and do not do anything that contributes to you being murdered, as in the test, for a life is a precious and most wonderful gift and we must not waste it

Of course you are right. MB is an established standard by people who think personality tests serve some purpose. I think these things (like IQ tests) are in general over used. I wasn't complaining about MB test so much, more about some of Jung's more fanciful idea and their adherents.

a true introvert would not want to be put in a big Brother home, and be exposed to the whole country. Extroversion would be a big part of going to BB4, and the BB4 producers will also want extroverts. not much fun for the viewers if they pick Introverts, who do nothing but read books and do solitary things

Ah yes, I can see why you'd have a problem with that. Well consider an individual who wishes himself to be a rationalist. In order for him to maintain his rational 'ego' it becomes necessary for him to suppress many (natural) emotional reactons, he consigns then to 'the shadow' of the unconscious, becoming oblivious to their existence. In time conflict arise between the rational ego and the emotional subconscious. Something is missing, it doesn't feel right. The greater the determination to maintain the rational ego, the greater the conflict with the subconscious, the ideas the ego represses to maintain itself. The collective unconscious refers to those repressed thoughts and ideas.

No, I just can't see any validity in the idea from a scientific viewpoint. I know psychoanalysis is not an exact science but you can't just hypothesise anything, can you?

The three quiz links

I really enjoyed those descriptions of the 'levels of hell' nice writing. I made it to Purgatory, yay :)

I got INTP but only the Intuitive (78%) really counts, the others were <20%.

Apparently I got high on Schizotypal.. go me.


Jung had some interesting ideas on spirituality and consciousness, I wouldn't put him below Freud.

Speaking as someone with a psychology degree, I can't say those test were very well designed with the forced-choice options, Likert Scales are the most popularly implemented technique for survey design these days. *Real* personality tests like the MMPI can tell you something.

I'm not!

(With apologies to Monty Python).

Now, if we're all so unique why did your hackneyed intro to this post sound so much like something I'd read before that I googled parts of it to see if it was plagiarised (and was surprised to find it wasn't!)?

I've taken this kind of test before and don't consistently get the same result. Today I got INTJ which I think is the one I have most commonly got before.

Well no, it will give you a hint. As it says, leave diagnosis to the pros.

Indeed it must be unreliable, it said I was fine. :lol:

Think I got moderate for everything Matthew's ever accused me of being and low for all the rest. :cool:

(But I did wish there was a "not sure" option on some of those questions.)

I'll see you (well not you actually, only those with the necessary class) in the sixth circle, reserved for heretics. I deservedly got an "extreme" score for that one, and "high" for levels 3,4,5,7 and 9.

The rest are American so I won't bother with them as I doubt they are applicable to Australia.

Being curious about my own motivations I took the test and find that I am INTP / INFP

Introverted 11
Intuitive 67
Thinking 1
Perceiving 67

Noone says I am introverted. As for Thinking/Feeling - being on the fence tells me nothing but I am naturally balanced. I guess I am intuative and (under the surface) non-judgemental.

This test sounds mostly like bollocks - a bit like a horoscope, you can agree with a lot of the proclaimations because "we all got a liddle bit of everyfin in us."
