    Myers Briggs is claptrap. Sometimes I get INTP. Other times I get ESFP. INTP, and ESFP are almost opposite types. Interestingly, I get INTP when I've been studying hard. I get ESFP when its the holidays. I tend to go out and socialize alot more.

    I think Myers Briggs really just reflects your situation rather than personality. E.g. if you're a programmer working 12 hours a day you'll probably test INTJ. If you're a bartender you'll test around ESFP. As you change professions/situation your personality type will likely change.

    I recommend Jordan Peterson's test instead.
    Mine has been pretty consistent for the past 7 years apart from the odd letter change every couple of years.

    Two things. No it isn't. Jordan Peterson (your holy saviour) did not invent the big five.

    Maybe you don't really know yourself yet? Or you're answering what you feel like is the right/better answer and not really what is true. There are always times you feel more introverted/extroverted or more emotional etc. which is why you'll probably never be 100% INTP for each letter. And most people aren't 100% one letter anyway. But I think for most people there tends to be a general idea of where they fit. I don't think it's completely accurate either as there aren't enough questions and some can be quite vague but I wouldn't be so quick to call it "claptrap".

    Probably overdone but just wondering about the newer TSR members.
    Mainly interested to see how many extroverts there are.

    It's interesting seeing people with these types. Most people I know in real life are E--J or E--P. I don't know any ISTJ, INFJ, ISFJ's.
