Are you rare? or well done?

Posted on February 6, 2008. Filed under: Games, Musings |

I had taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator several times before, but I’d never seen anything quite like this take on it by our friends at Blogthings (otherwise known as Blogger’s Block’s Best Friend) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your Personality is Very Rare (INFP)


Your personality type is dreamy, romantic, elegant, and expressive.Only about 5% of all people have your personality, including 6% of all women and 4% of all men
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving.
How Rare Is Your Personality?

# # # # # ย 

I didn’t realize I was so rare!ย  The characteristics seem right, though.ย  Every version of this test I’ve taken has a different narrative interpretation.ย  After taking the above test, this next one also showed up on Blogthings.ย  It’s much more extensive than the first, but I’m still the same personality type.

# # # # #


You Are An INFP


The Idealist-You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.
Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.
It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.
But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.
You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.
You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual-When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak
What’s Your Personality Type?

Finally, as if I needed confirmation—apparently some of you people think I’m a freak! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Naw, not really.ย  I’m just enjoying a little break from deep thinking.ย  So, how rare are you?ย  Do you find such psychological tests helpful in self-understanding and acceptance?


You Are 80% Non Conformist


You are a pretty serious non conformist. You live a life hardly anyone understands.
And while some may call you a freak, you’re happy with who you are.

You definitely have your freak flag out, and from time to time, you wave it.
You have some pretty strong opinions, and you’re not afraid to express them.

just nice, though i think i’m more conformist actually. ๐Ÿ™‚

nice quizzes!

Weird, I also got INFP on both quizzes, even though I’m usually a pretty consistent INTJ. Some of those questions really do tend to throw me off, because I either value both options (such as the choice between reason versus emotion) or would rather answer something else entirely (like when determining whether I’d listen to someone in charge, it would really depend on whether they deserve the respect they appear to command).

Let’s play…

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ESFP)

Your personality type is playful, charming, open minded, and energetic.

Only about 7% of all people have your personality, including 9% of all women and 5% of all men
You are Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling,

You Are An INTP***

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.

In love, you are an easy person to fall for. But not an easy person to stay in love with.
Although you are quite flexible, you often come off as aloof or argumentative.

At work, you are both a logical and creative thinker. You are great at solving problems.
You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

How you see yourself: Creative, fair, and tough-minded

When other people don’t get you, they see you as: arrogant, cold, and robotic

You Are 95% Non Conformist

You’re incredibly strange. And a weirdness like yours takes skill to cultivate!
No one really understands you. And you’re cool with that. You just hope you never have to understand them!

I agree strongly with all of them…loll!!

So, sulz, you are the rarest of the rare! Figures, doesn’t it? I think these qualities do describe you. I think you are hardworking! You take all these challenging courses, and maintain your incredible blog, and answer questions on the fora with endless patience, and do many other things I’m not even aware of! You do seem to have a good balance between conformity and non-conformity, too.

Hi Deirdra–that is interesting, in light of the fact that you usually don’t get these results. The Blogthings quizzes are brief and may not be as accurate as the full-length test. I agree—there were times I wanted to choose both answers, or neither. Living an either/or life does not interest me! The Wikipedia article I linked to on Myers-Briggs states some researchers’ opinions that the original test is not very accurate, either, and people score differently at different times in their lives. I guess we can just look at the test as one tool in our toolbox.

CV, this just does sound SO like you! And you are the most non-conformist of us all! Does this mean you’re even freakier than me? I knew I liked you for a reason! ๐Ÿ™‚

***Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISFP)***

Your personality type is caring, peaceful, artistic, and calm.

Only about 7% of all people have your personality, including 8% of all women and 6% of all men

Previous test have always tagged me as ISFJ, but here are differing results:

***Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISTP)***

Your personality type is reserved, methodical, spirited, and intense.

Only about 6% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 8% of all men
You are Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving.

You Are An ISFP

The Artist

You are a gifted artist or musician (though your talents may be dormant right now).
You enjoy spending your free time in nature, and you are good with animals and children.
Simply put, you enjoy beauty in all its forms and live for the simple pleasures in life.
Gentle, sensitive, and compassionate – you are good at recognizing people’s unspoken needs.

In love, you are quiet and sweet yet very passionate. You love easily.
You have an underlying love for all living things, and it’s easy for you to accept someone into your heart.

At work, you do best in an unconventional position. You express yourself well and can work with almost anyone.
You would make a good veterinarian, pediatrician, or composer.

How you see yourself: Sympathetic, kind, and communicative

When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Incompetent, insecure, and overly sensitive

And finallyโ€ฆ You Are 37% Non Conformist

You conform a normal amount. And the amount you don’t conform is also pretty normal. So congratulations, you’re a conformist nonconformist!

Hi Dove! I’ve noticed that WordPress puts comments into ‘moderation’ if they have more than two links in them—even from longtime friends and commenters such as yourself. All you did was leave in all three quiz links, which were already here on the post! ๐Ÿ˜• Well, I found you and have resurrected you. Poof! There, you’re back.
You certainly are artistic, dove. I don’t see you quite as a “knitter”, either, but you are crafty. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And you absolutely do deserve romantic gestures. I love how these quizzes say things to you like “you are incredibly strange” lol. Well, we oddballs have to hang together.

Rikard, that’s interesting that you’re another who usually tests differently on this. Well, you are obviously a gifted artist AND musician, which I can attest to, having experienced your skill in both areas. Are your talents dormant right now? They weren’t a little while ago. And if the rest of the qualities in the profile are true, you seem like one of the most delightful people in the world! ๐Ÿ˜€ The test says you would make a good composer! Got that right.

But I mean, Muse, don’t u think I am a little bit too Nonconformist?? loll!! It reminds me about my life path number in numerology which is 7…The ”too much” energy..loll!!

Wow…that INFP chick looks hot! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m an ENTJ personally.

CV, since you asked, no, I don’t think you are “TOO” non-conformist—that is if you are happy with being that way. You are who you are, and if people don’t appreciate you for that, well, it’s just their loss, that’s all! ๐Ÿ˜€

kstafford, Whoa, boy! Didn’t the people who brought you up talk to you about lusting after line drawings? Or do you mean the young lady representing “(non) Conformity”? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I looked up the characteristics for your profile, and they do seem to fit what I know of you. I think they speak to your drive and energy level which I enjoy! Thanks for dropping by. 8)

Hi! I’ve taken this test multiple times, but I always forget what I am. What do you think this means? ๐Ÿ˜€

Wow, three quizzes, Muse? We’re spoilt for choice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your Personality is Very Rare (INTJ).
Your personality type is logical, uncompromising, independent, and nonconformist.
Only about 3% of all people have your personality, including 2% of all women and 4% of all men.
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Judging.

That’s not a bad match; I’m usually an INTJ. I like the non conformist bit, but I’m not very good at judging… I have a good sense of individual character, but I’m useless at reading situations.

You Are An INTJ.
The Scientist.
You have a head for ideas – and you are good at improving systems. Logical and strategic, you prefer for everything in your life to be organized. You tend to be a bit skeptical. You’re both critical of yourself and of others. Independent and stubborn, you tend to only befriend those who are a lot like you.

In love, you are always striving to improve your relationship. You have strong ideas of what love should be like. At work, you excel in figuring out difficult tasks. People think of you as “the brain.” You would make an excellent scientist, engineer, or programmer.

How you see yourself: Reasonable, knowledgeable, and competent
When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Aloof, controlling, and insensitive

That’s a bit different to my definition of INTJs. I thought they’re known for a combination of imagination and reliability, which can lend itself as much to creativity as logic? Apart from that, though, it’s not a bad match.

You Are 60% Non Conformist.
You definitely have your freak flag out, and from time to time, you wave it. You have some pretty strong opinions, and you’re not afraid to express them.

Now that’s probably the most accurate one! My opinions are pretty strong and I like to see things differently… but I like to understand other viewpoints as well, that’s just as important.

Thanks, Muse – between yours and brightfeather’s blogs, I’m all quizzed out now! ๐Ÿ˜† Interesting results, though, you learn a lot about yourself through these kinds of questions… some food for thought.

Well, teeveebee, perhaps it means that you can get along fine in life without all the over-analysing these tests encourage? ๐Ÿ™‚

I know, ceej, three quizzes seem a bit excessive, but they all showed up and seemed to go together! What’s a blogger to do? ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, your personality has either evolved or morphed into a new you, or the quiz, once again, must be called into question. I, at least, don’t see the aloof or stubborn qualities in you, but the scientist fits, both for writing sci-fi, and research for other projects. Your unconventionality seems just right. Are bloggers, in general, a bit off-beat, have we just gathered those kinds around us? 8)

I’m with Deirdra, some of the questions are almost impossible to answer! Would I be more likely to be called serious or sensitive? Both! Do I prefer abstract or realistic art? Both! However, despite the frustration with standardized tests, I came out with the same designation I always do: INFP–rare only 5%. And since I also like my steak rare I guess that works out well.

I’m also 73% nonconformist; a happy freak.

Looks like we match, Muse! :o)

BTW, thanks for adding me to your blogroll, that’s very cool! :o)

[…] be fun to reproduce here the results of an online test that I took in response to a post over at MusEditions. This is based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a personality test that I love and have taken […]

Joyful Seeker, re: rare steak, ๐Ÿ™‚ Alright, a non-conformist, INFP buddy! I, too, have taken the full-fledged Myers-Briggs a couple of times, and I have evolved (?) to be more “P” and less “J”. I am pleased to have you on my blogroll, as I’m honored to be on yours. It reminds me to read your wonderful blog more often. And, thanks for the link!
