When I have time, I'll take the linked tests and see what happens and if anything has changed since I've been retired. I'm thinking the results will remain as INTZ / INTJ.


Took the linked tests and results were ISTJ on both, but the S and N preferences were marginal, especially on the first one.  Evidently, I'm a borderline S / N .  Reading the descriptions, I can understand how being ADD fits into the picture.

Hello CarolynM686566:

     So good to hear wisdom from another INFJ.  Sometimes we can feel as if we don't fit in anywhere. Since realizing that I am a tried and true INFJ ,understanding myself and the world around me has made so much sense.

I took this personality profile back in 2001, was given my results, did mentoring with others that shared similar profiles within the organization I was employed by. 

I've thus be forced into retirement through disability and now 100% disabled through the Government.

In 2017 I went through a catastrophic tornado and lost all my documentation records.

What I'm curious about is this:

Is there a resource that I can retake this profiling test for free or low cost?

I'm regaining my heath restrictions/limitations and almost to a point of being forced to reenter the workforce.

Many years ago I took this test, when I was about 50.  I was an INFJ.  It was then a fairly rare "breed" encompassing only about 5% of the USA population at that time.  It described me perfectly, and I felt "understood" for the first time in my life, as to why I responded to various events as I did.

 

It's not easily explained to the average fellow citizen.  But I am comfortable with what I have been given by God.  I have accepted who I am and have some understanding as to why I am what I am.

 

And it's okay.  I know I don't fit well into society's thinking of how we should respond or think, but that's okay, too.  I'm pretty content in my own head and heart.

 

I have passed 80 now.  And it's okay.

At 74 years old........I am what I am and not interesting to take any test telling me what I am as I'm pretty sure I know what I am.

Hi @TracyofCotuit 

 

I think in general your type remains pretty constant throughout your life and with various tests unless there's a traumatic/pivotal event in your life or if you're borderline between two functions (i.e. Thinker/Feeler decision making). I've found the best way to really be sure of your type is to do some reading and apply that to what you know about yourself.

Vicki,

I just took both of the tests, and preferred the second as it was more complete and easier for me to understand.

Both tests concluded that I am a ESFJ type, which by and large I have to agree with.

I do wonder though if I were to take either of these tests on a day when I was feeling differently, would the result be the same?
