I'm an INFJ

You Are An INFJ

The Protector

You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.
Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is.
You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.
You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.

You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.

This pretty much sums me up.

You Are An ENFJ
The Giver

You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed.
Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.
Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down.
You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine.

You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.

I'm on the boundary between ENTJ and INTJ.
Not a whole lot of women of this type, especially with ENTJs. On the ENTJ tip, we do well in totalitarian-type roles such as lawyer, CEO and asshole. We are maverick types and love to explode the box, not just think outside of it. Charismatic. I'm good with that. On the INTJ tip (this predominates ever so slightly with me) we are intuitive, scientific, thirsting for knowledge and new ideas, somewhat perfectionistic and perhaps judgemental. A little anti-social, not good with romance. All that is me, too. BubandPie is an INTJ, BTW.
Very fun post.

Did I change? I took the test you linked to and here's what I got, and it sounds good to me, esp. the pet peeves and my problems with authority / religion/ jackasses:

The Thinker

You are analytical and logical - and on a quest to learn everything you can.
Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.
Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.
A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.

You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

And I forgot to say, the above is INTP. So that's me. Sorry about the three comments, I don't mean to be rude, I just keep messing up.
Anyway, very fun, thanks.

I am mildly addicted to personality tests. So, of course, I had to take this one, too. Here's the verdict on me:

You Are An ENFP
The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.
You are also unconventional, irreverant, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're qutie the storyteller!

You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

Two out of three, Kerri. Unless you're also running for office?

SOLIDLY an INTJ.

Read 'em and weep.

Julia - My father was in the house and in the Senate for a number of years ... I fear it may be in my blood. :)

Hey, welcome to the club - I'm an INFJ too (though I'm married to an INTJ and a big, big fan of the type). And Emily - I can totally see you as an INTP.

I'm off to follow your link - see how I turn out on this one.
