Oh dear, got my 4 letters and it began with a C...
Best i not play this game.
In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
The last time I tested, about 6 months ago, I was INTJ, but nearly balanced on the T/F, which is OK.
Greetings of the season, MMW.
If I could put in a word for Jung introversion, being an introverted Jungian.
I'm one of the few extroverts on UM.I like people, and I like being around them. I"m an ESTJ I usually am when I take this test.
Liking people and enjoying their company isn't the issue when Jung used the term. He did that a lot, using words in an idiosyncratic way, or finding "strange" words (enantiodrmia) or coining new ones (synchronicity). Word choice must have been something psychological .
Anyway, Jung-introversion is more of a habitual problem-solving stance, internalizing or modeling the world to work on things inside your skull. The extrovert is more inclined to deal with events "directly" as they unfold. Extroversion is (apparently) the majority approach adopted by people, at least in the West. And at the risk of betraying "stance envy," it seems more valued in American culture.
So, participating seriously on an internet forum seems like the ideal pastime for an introvert Not because it's avoiding people, but rather because it is dealing with people in a way that allows time for reflection about both the person and the issue being discussed. Reality with an "edit" button is a Jung-introvert's Fantasyland.
As with all things about the Jungian theory of types, it is a matter of degree, not absolutely one way or the other. It is also a "snapshot," how you appear now, and you may change from that snapshot over time. Speaking informally, it seems to me that the intro/extro thing is relatively stable compared with the other dimensions. It doesn't seem to change much, maybe because it is so fundamental, and bears so directly on problem-solving. I know I probably wouldn't be an effective extrovert, since I haven't honed the skills through practice. It would be hard for me to change, just as it would be hard for me to get a black belt in karate, even to the arrive at the Jung-ideal point of "earned" balance between the stances.

You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)
You have slight preference of Perceiving over Judging (11%)
I also gott INFJ There must be a lot of us out there. Interestingly, I missed answering 4 questions the first time and had to go back - I think that proves I do things in too much of a hurry and don't watch what I'm doing! LOL
