    I just did the Meyer-Briggs personality test and as Green Day once put, apparently I'm "neurotic to the bone, no doubt about it!" Although it says 'Idealist', I'm not very reassured. I thought I was an INTP at least. In fact I'm somewhat ashamed to share this revelation with anyone irl, such is the level of neurosis associated with this.

    So is anyone from TSR an INFP?

    Yes! I took an online personality test at the weekend and I was found to be an INFP. At first I didn't think that was accurate, but I did some more research into the INFP personality type and found out that many aspire to be psychologists or psychiatrists, the exact career paths I was focused on before the summer. Weird!

    I am INFP. I am also largely ENFP, and somewhat ESFP depending on the test I take.

    A single website page is never going to fully describe who you are. What's wrong with INFP anyway? :lol:

    Sweet! I have been curious about psychology for a long long time welcome!

    This is true…I have roughly

    Honestly perhaps nothing…I didn't know until recently much about it! My scores came out as incredibly introverted though.

    I'm about 82 out of 100 on the introverted thing

    I see - my scores always show 1% into the Introvert or Extrovert scales... I'm probably neither. Or both.

    INFP is a beautiful thing, as long as you stay 100% motivated to achieve your goals.

    I'm an INFP too the descriptions suit me perfectly and doing the test made me discover something about myself

    It also said a good career for me is research science, something I actually want to do

    Plus, Shakespeare, John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn, George RR Martin, George Orwell and C S Lewis are all INFPs :F so was Princess Diana!

    I've noticed that a lot of people I look up to are INFPs which is an ego boost if ever there was one :awesome:

    What the hell is an INFP and ENFP?

    After googling what it is I'm convinced that people who use these terms to describe themselves are people with too much time on their hands.

    They're one of sixteen different personality types as developed my Myers-Briggs. As a psychology student, I find it interesting to know what my personality type is and how I can use it achieve my goals.

    Sorry but to me it looks like a load of self-serving hogwash. I'm sure some elements of it are true but people who want a certain label will get it by answering in a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I find this obsession with compartmentalising by labelling ourselves quite strange and creepy tbh.
