Myers-Briggs personality types on WebmasterWorld
Are you INTJ, INTP, ENTP, etc.

I think one of the most revealing questionnaires you can take that's available on the web is a version of the Myers-Briggs personality survey. It groups people into 16 categories according to four pairs of variables: Introvert/Extrovert, Sensing/iNtuitive, Thinking/Feeling, Judging/Perceiving. The survey thus indentifies you as INTJ, ESFP, ISFJ, etc.

Although people of all categories can be found in all careers, there are strong statistical correlations with certain lines of work. Scientists/inventors are often INTJ or INTP types (introverted, intuitive, thinking, and either perceiving or judging). People in the helping professions are often ISFJs. Sales people are often ESFJ, and so on.

Here's a simple version of the Myers-Briggs [humanmetrics.com] (the real thing is many pages long and is licenced only to professional psychologists). What types to we have here at WebmasterWorld? I would guess something of a bimodal distribution with the more computer-geekish people in the INT- area and the e-commerce/sales people in the ESF- area. But that's a guess.

RJO (INTJ)

ENFP here, though it's been ages since I took a test and I'm not sure how in depth it was when compared to others.

(took perhaps a half hour to complete)

hmmm... pretty sure I used to be an ENTJ.

I'll try and take this one between calamities - it'll be interesting to see if it's the same

two calamities later...

hmmm... turns out I'm an ISTJ this time round

INFP ... haven't read what that means yet though. I hope they are kind! :)

OK ... I've read it "to some degree" and its not far off! I was amazed by the list of people who have had similar results:

Homer
Virgil
Mary, mother of Jesus
St. John, the beloved disciple
St. Luke; physician, disciple, author
William Shakespeare, bard of Avon
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Evangeline)
A. A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh)
Laura Ingalls Wilder (Little House on the Prairie)
Helen Keller, deaf and blind author
Carl Rogers, reflective psychologist, counselor
Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers' Neighborhood)
Dick Clark (American Bandstand)
Donna Reed, actress (It's a Wonderful Life)
Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis
Neil Diamond, vocalist
Tom Brokaw, news anchor
James Herriot (All Creatures Great and Small)
Annie Dillard (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek)
James Taylor, vocalist
Julia Roberts, actress (Conspiracy Theory, Pretty Woman) Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap)
Terri Gross (PBS's "Fresh Air")
Amy Tan (author of The Joy-Luck Club, The Kitchen God's Wife)
John F. Kennedy, Jr.
Lisa Kudrow ("Phoebe" of Friends)
Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years")

At least I'm not entirely insulted! Since I am in the same classification as the Virgin Mary, I suppose I shouldn't complain too much. I just want to know when she took the test and how it was given? ;) Was she in Nazareth, Bethlehem ... where? What make of computer was she using? Was Joseph off running errands? Had she given birth or was this an impending event?

HeHe! :)

ENFP.

For me it's very situational ... but I'm always somewhere in the middle (not very extreme on any of the scales).

Wow, didn't expect I'd be the first ENTP to post. Took the long version 14 years ago.

This one says I've still got it :) Think my scores have mellowed a bit on Extroverted & the Thinking. Maybe all the I's around here are rubbing off on me.

INTJ, means I'm a Mastermind :), part of 1% of the population and a natural leader. I feel very special now ;).

And Gandalf the Grey, Hannibal Lecter AND Clarice Starling are the same...

The_Contractor - I guess you're the right kind of ODP editor then - in it for purely idealistic reasons ;)

I'm an INFJ too. That things scary, has me down to a tee.

I'm pretty happy about sharing a personality type with Ghandi and Eleanor Roosevelt though :)

After reading the INTP descriptions I'm not surprised there's so many here, looks like a perfect match for web work. Sadly I'm going to have to give it up and go into counselling.

Current standings:

8 INTP
4 ENFP
4 INTJ
2 ENFJ
2 INFJ
1 INFP
1 ISTJ
1 ENTP
1 ENTJ

Rest still at 0. 16 introverted vs. 8 extraverted, not surprisingly.

Just had a quick count:

INTP 7
INTJ 5
ENFP 4
INFJ 4
ENFJ 3
ISTJ 1
INFP 1
ENTP 1
ENTJ 1

I/N 18/9
N/S 26/1
T/F 15/12
P/J 13/14

So we're rather introvert here and very intuitive.
Is that what it takes to be a webmaster and/or SEO?
