Try see it as "cognitive function" test, as an extension of Jungs work.
If you see it as personality test, you are going to have a baaad time.

Infj-T Ennegram 4w5.

I prefer trutiy over the other mbti site for testing, also reading the descriptions of all types helps a lot. 

Cognitive functions are also good to know I prefer to type them over full types. 

There is eben neuroscience with mbti no idea how valid IT is. Nevertheless quiet interesting.

I believe that forever identifying with your MBTI test is the biggest draw back to self actualization. If we are the same person as we were several years ago, what have we really truly accomplished at a psychological and spiritual level?

 

Sounds a lot like complacency to me. Keep progressing, changing and perceiving life in a whole new way. The online test could be distorted by our aspirations, I have went from an INTP to now someone who is incredibly social and the life of the room. Perhaps I was truly this way and in denial from all the repression and self guilt.

I used to get INPT and now I have INFP-T personality. I guess the results depend on your current mood or something because I never feel exactly the same in every situation. These tests are just for fun, I wouldn't take them too seriously.


Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

Took it a couple years ago and got enfj, took it just now and got enfj- A

amazing how consistent it is.

86% extraverted

66% Intuitive

86% Feeling

71% Judging

58% Assertive

This confirms an idea I've had related to life purpose that I eventually want to become a political or social leader, my personality is ripe for it, if I could get a couple decades of life experience and development under my belt

INFP. I feel too much! *Sigh*

"They are mostly silent, inaccessible, hard to understand; often they hide behind a childish or banal mask, and their temperament is inclined to melancholy…Their outward demeanor is harmonious, inconspicuous…with no desire to affect others, to impress, influence or change them in any way. If this is more pronounced, it arouses suspicion of indifference and coldness…Although there is a constant readiness for peaceful and harmonious co-existence, strangers are shown no touch of amiability, no gleam of responsive warmth…It might seem on a superficial view that they have no feelings at all." -Psych. Types (Para. 640-641)

@Aquarius Your personality type doesn't change. If it does, it's because you got your type wrong.

Most people lack the self-awareness to discover their actual personality type. Consider it more of a values assessment.

@bejapuskas Perceived personality type, that is. A Fi-dom doesn't suddenly become a Ni-dom. A Fi-dom might start identifying more with their Ni, but that doesn't change the fact that they still spend 95% of their day in a Introverted Feelings state.

Your type doesn't change.

@Commodent  I don't agree with you, but this seems like an interested theme for debate, don't you for example think, that it might be the case, that the introverted individual wants to express themselves truthfuly and authentically, so they seek out people with whom they can be themselves (which changes) and among these people they might act as if they were extroverted. And extroverts are better at expressing themselves, so they do not mind so much... But still I dont think this is given, I have developed this mindset that I am in control, but please prove me wrong, I am really interested in what you think. :)

@bejapuskas Let's say your dominant cognitive function is Fi. You will spend 95% of your day view through the lens of how you feel about things and your personal values. This is what you've been doing your entire life, and it's so encompassing you aren't really aware of it. You can't fathom any other way of doing it. C.G. Jung said so himself, you are BLIND to your 1st and 4th function. People are only really aware of their 2nd and 3rd function. You can exercise your weaker functions, even tone down your dominant function. But your type will still stay the same. In fact, you want to balance out your dominant function. Doing so won't change your personality type, though, and that's the thing. You mature. You don't become a completely different person.

They might act as if they were extroverted, but they still won't be extroverted. They would still go home and recharge their batteries in their introverted state. Extroversion will drain them, because they're not naturally good at it. And even more, their bodies are not wired to be in that extroverted state all the time. So if they exert themselves too much, they will become physically sick.

Sorry, this discussion is honestly not very interesting. What I'm saying is well-established and really not worth the time arguing over. If you have any further questions, I'd advice you to simply educate yourself some more on the topic. E.g. by reading the book "Psychological Types" by C.G. Jung.

I was ENTJ 2-3 years ago, but now i took the test again and i m ENFP   but the F and the P were 51% , so I guess the personality can change over time and the types around 50% are not well covered , i think there is big difference if you are 0 or 49% in some of the letters or 51-100% .  
I was also more introverted 3 years ago, it was also around 50-50, now i am more extroverted i guess, the only constant is that i m high in the N(intuition) :)

@SkrOzz I'm not saying your personality doesn't change. It does (hopefully). Your type however, remains constant throughout your life. It is the framework in which you evolve.

Self-assessment tests are inherently unreliable, because people are in general not able to perceive themselves accurately (and no, you are not the rare, special exception). So the only thing you will learn from such tests is really just how you perceive yourself, and not how you are objectively.

Unless you type yourself using input from others and do some serious studies on cognitive functions, any self-typing is useless.

Convince me mbti is real, and I m full listening.

for me that's only an astrology for smart people.

but maybe I m totaly wrong and arbitrary emotional pointer lead to "real absolute" truth.

 

I never heard someone highly intellectual talking about mbti.
