What's your personality type? INFP gang represent. Also daily reminder that MBTI and even Jungian cognitive functions are not a concrete analysis of how people behave, it's only a general prediction of how people behave over a period of time when faced with various situations.


I fell for this shit for way too long just because I was a brainlet when in came to psychology in general.
Look into Jung's biography and how spooked he was. Jungian "psychology" is quite literally astrology (I thought it was a hyperbolic joke for the longest time):
>In the twentieth century, the western esoteric tradition inspired the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung to formulate his archetypal hypothesis, influenced by Plato's theory of ideas or forms.[2] In his research into the symbolic meaning of his patient's dreams, conversations and paintings, Jung observed recurring mythical themes or archetypes. He proposed that these universal and timeless archetypes channel experiences and emotions, resulting in recognizable and typical patterns of behavior with certain probable outcomes.[3] Jung claimed to observe a correlation between these archetypal images and the astrological themes or traditional 'gods' associated with the planets and signs of the zodiac. He concluded that the symbolic heavenly figures described by the constellations were originally inspired by projections of images created by the collective unconscious.[4][5] Jung wrote "Astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity".[6]

It primarily functions as a typological tool for use and exploit by employers in the service sector.

>The revolutionary is a doomed man. He has no private interests, no affairs, sentiments, ties, property nor even a name of his own. His entire being is devoured by one purpose, one thought, one passion - the revolution. Heart and soul, not merely by word but by deed, he has severed every link with the social order and with the entire civilized world; with the laws, good manners, conventions, and morality of that world. He is its merciless enemy and continues to inhabit it with only one purpose - to destroy it. –

Why does this thread make you so mad?






At least horoscopes have cool symbols and goofy magic shit associated with them. MBTI is just lame.


no fun allowed


At least horoscopes are fun. There's a bunch of wacky nonsene associated with them like dating compatibility. At least "which Hogwarts house are you" is about wizards and shit. MBTI is totally dry corporate phrenology.


im a gemini sun + moon and enfp
i think mbti is a dumb gimmick that only works somewhat well when paired with enneagram and if one uses the functions + its stacks but at that point it is no longer within the normie realm
(hate using the word normie just dont know how else to word it)


whatever you say faggot


I don't care about Jung or his convoluted crap. Astrology is not a science but one can say that it can be disturbingly accurate for what is essentially mysticism. (I.e. zodiac traits). It's also useful for navigation because you learn the constellations.


>disturbingly accurate for what is essentially mysticism


It's 'disturbingly accurate' because everything related to astrology is a Barnum statement

>"your sign gains energy from being around friends, but you also often need time to recharge alone"

>OMG that's literally me!!!


>A barnum statement
Stop reading the shitty stuff and do research m8. It gets more specific than that with real astrologers and not online scammers.


If astrology is real then why couldn't any of them win the 'million dollar prize'?




the James Randi one?


The 16personalities test is not MBTI/Jungian at all, it's just OCEAN/Big Five that uses Jungian terminology and MBTI categories. They explicitly state this in describing their personality model ("NERIS Type Explorer"). Actual MBTI is pure pseudoscience.
That being said, INTP gang represent.


>It's also useful for navigation because you learn the constellations.
Astrology is not astronomy, retard.




And now you fell for the pop culture skepticism. Nice.


No argument? Nice.
Advocate for Jungianism from a materialist perspective.


I know idiot, I studied astronomy. What the fuck do you think the zodiacs are based on, idiot.


Then you should know they are just planets and stars like our Sun, there's nothing mystic with them, dumbfuck.


Nobody said there was something necessarily mystic about the planets retard. Did you even read what I said or are you just bringing about your knee-jerk reaction about "muh astrology" Just shut up, moron.


>Nobody said there was something necessarily mystic about the planets retard
>>one can say that it can be disturbingly accurate for what is essentially mysticism. (I.e. zodiac traits)
That's your words, you senile.


Learn the difference between accuracy and precision you imbecile. TO call it accurate is not wrong. For example Gemini zodiac traits tend to be fairly accurate, as do others. is there some scientific evidence proving causation? No, I never claimed this. There IS however strange correlation, which was my entire point, you fucking assmad contrarian.


File: 1608526183769.jpg (113.47 KB, 1024x386, Personalmanities.jpg)

now explain why my irl personality overlaps perfectly with my Sims zodiac, which applies numbers to explicit traits rather than relying on barnum statements.
(i played the sims before i knew what zodiac signs were, so it's not the case of making the evidence fit the hypothesis. although i may be being facetious when i act like the sims traits are a serious attempt at quantitative astrology)


If there's no scientific evidence then it's bullshit, Bunkerchan is a materialist chan so get your crystal shitball out of here.


Suck a dick pretentious moron.


Are you an obsessive, a hysteric, a pervert or psychotic?


No, they're based while you're high on esotericism.
It's clear to me that this leaves you the 'pretentious' one.


Horoscopes are more fun for sure- plus more astrologists? astrology writers? Idk what they call themselves - that leverage aspects of astrology and horoscopes to give legitimately useful advice and methods for self-reflection and growth. MBTI can function the same way as a medium for self-reflection but more proponents of it are corporate clowns who write productivity blogs about how the productively write productivity blogs.


It's clear to me you're butthurt.


Would you say you often get disorganized? Or are you usually on top of the ball?
I'm trying to figure out if I'm INFP or INFJ. I figure I'm definitely intuition dominant and I use Tx almost as much as Fx


What is it like being the best person?



I'm far too humble to see myself that way but thanks for the compliment.


your welcome, thank you for the sincere answer

I love that a lot of entps are like a bubbling geyser of crazy and preposterous ideas and will talk for hours about them if you get the chance to do a back and forth


yes mbti is pseudoscience but can you not with the fucking Christchurch footage, I don't need this negative shit right now


It's a spambot. The exact smae video with a different filename is in cyberpunk and on threads in /anime/ and /tech/


I have no idea, every time I do the test I get something different, but the only trait I always get is Introverted. No matter the result, I never take it seriously because I also identify with the other types I tend to get.


>It primarily functions as a typological tool for use and exploit by employers in the service sector.
that implies it has truth value tho


>yes mbti is pseudoscience



More like a lot of decisions are arbitrary and sorting people by type makes it easier to get away with doing that.

Virgin TeFi axis user vs Chad TiFe axis user


plato's the TiFe and Aristotle's the TeFi


Pseudoscience is unironically cool. Go back to /r/heckyeahscience.


different intj here. I was dumb enough to pay for a certified exam and lean pretty heavily towards one side in all four metrics. I'm pretty disorganized physically, in the sense that I don't bother to make sure my room, office, etc. are prim and proper. my note taking and general organizational ability is pretty sloppy as well. however, I place more emphasis on my mind being organized and having things I immediately need at hand. probably why I hate mundane work where there's a lot of chances to make small mistakes.


So ENFP Plato vs INTJ Aristotle then?
Also ngl 'becoming one with the universe' sounds more rad to me than 'achieving excellence and becoming a master'
The self is limiting, no man is an island yadda yadda


I think there's more to said about a seasonal typology than actually astrology. It would make sense that infants who spend the first few months indoors vs outdoors would have lasting effects.

IDK what any of those personalities are


File: 1629290843993.png (85.48 KB, 1053x463, idrlabs.png)


Both of you are probably fairly reclusive and prone to fantasy/deep thinking. More menial task and organisation might be a challenge for both of you. Both types are similar with some differences, INTP being more analytical and emotionally detached, INFP being more emotional and emotionally sensitive. So you will likely face similar difficulties/aversions and strengths/preferences.
Anyways MBTI stuff is less important than how you actually get on with a person, it's just one way to think about your similarities and differences.


Have you seen such a coupling IRL? If so how did it go?


Sorry I haven't seen this specific pair IRL. I would suggest watching MBTI youtube channels if you want to hear someone's IRL experience. I'm assuming your interested in an INFP female you know? How do you guys normally go interacting with one another? How do you find your interactions with INFPs in general?

I got INFP-T 'Mediator', r8 my personality


you have a 3/10 personality for doing the 16 personalities one.Just kidding. It's just rebranded big 5 though, which means it's actually scientifically validated. INFP-T means high in introversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, low in conscientousness, and high in neuroticism, in that order.

Here try this one if you want your MBTI type https://sakinorva.net/functions


It's not really astrology tho. Even if MBTI involves pseudoscience and false assumptions it is couched in personality differences between people. Perhaps you could say some people born at different times of the year would have some predictable differences in personality but I would consider MBTI to be on the contrary an actually useful if scientifically invalidated way of thinking about the differences between people's personalities. We also have Big 5/Hexaco chads in the thread if you wish to post your own evidence based personality test.


What about this one?


Hey it's the one my boss made us do at work.

I would say that while MBTI is not /complete/ psuedoscience, it definitely falls into the trap of Barnum statements and so on.


Nerdesque unsurprisingly, yet notably low neuroticism, congratulations Shinji


>Hey it's the one my boss made us do at work.
It's okay most people do that one and like I mentioned it's basically a mini big 5
>I would say that while MBTI is not /complete/ psuedoscience, it definitely falls into the trap of Barnum statements and so on.
Yes that is fair to say

Oh I was asking mainly because I see people on youtube and personality related websites mention these two as 'The Golden Pair'.


Very high Ti, would you consider yourself a nerd or scientifically minded? Do you spend a lot of time pondering? Looks very INTP to me. You are probably in good company around here


Oh okay. Yes they are probably a pretty good pair, good mix of feeling/thinking and shared extroverted intuition, introverted nature. Lot's to relate on, similar energy/organisation requirements. But also that different preference for thinking/feeling so they can round each other out and keep things interesting


>Very high Ti, would you consider yourself a nerd or scientifically minded? Well yeah I browse here of course I'm a nerd lol, although scientifically minded sounds too flattering for what I am.

Do you spend a lot of time pondering? Yes, sometimes I lose sleep having conversations with other people I'll never meet inside of my head, or get lost in thought in the middle of performing a house chore and I'm very prone to daydreaming about how great my life would be if I became well adjusted again after so many years.

>You are probably in good company here.

Well kinda, there is a fair bit of control freaks who make me uncomfortable but it's alright overall. What about you?


I relate to what you said in the first paragraph a lot. Did you have a major interruption in life course?




It's really not lol, nobodies even asking for identifiable info. Asking vague questions about people's personalities is a lot less useful than like aksing about people's locale and what praxis they do


I for one am fascinated by other people, and their personalities, I can spend hours and days on end listening to people speak and trying to learn what makes them, them. I am interested about people and about humanity in general. I don't stalk or manipulate people and I am careful not to ask anything too personal or make people uncomfortable. I am also very introspective, so it's interesting to compare how my own personality and views diverge from other people's.
If I wanted to harvest users metadata I wouldn't ask them questions about their personality, I would tell and suggest to them "details about my own life" to see what they pick up on and return. A lot of people keep the inner workings of their minds a secret and that is OK and understandable. But still some people are happy to share


>mining for useless data like personality types


ITT: tell us a bit about yourself and we try and guess your type


File: 1629611825650.png (74.26 KB, 976x636, ClipboardImage.png)


the entire premise is backwards, its more of a test to see in what you are deficient and should work towards improving,


Anyone who accepts these tests should be considered mentally ill. That is the true purpose of personality tests.


Why did they decide that these specific traits are the pillars of our personalities? Why not take a hammer to someone's leg and see if they groan or scream, then try to find out how the groaners respond to certain things in contrast to the screamers and build a personality test around that. You could use all the same weasel shit to justify it that you see in this thread.


what did you answer to get this? lmao
MBTI is a non scientifically validated system of categorizing cognitive functions that everyone uses and how people rely on and have developed these functions to different degrees. It is not a science, however myself and many other people find it is a helpful sort of (fuzzy logic) tool. It can help to think about the psychology and behavioral style of one's self and of other people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers%E2%80%93Briggs_Type_Indicator
If this triggers you then note much of human knowledge is abstract and not grounded in real life. I have admitted MBTI is pseudo-scientific, not scientifically validated. My interest is not at all divorced from this realization so you can cope and seethe and read another thread if you still find what I am saying unreasonable.
On the other hand big 5 and Hexaco 6 factor are both scientifically validated and reliable measurements of objective qualities of human psychology e.g. introversion/extroversion, open-mindedness, conscientiousness etc…


>Yeah I know astrology is bullshit but it helps me anyway
You cope and I will seethe.


Is that what I said? In actuality or in intended message? Or are you being disingenuous on /hobby/ of all places because this is the internet and no one will be held to any sort of standards and code of conduct?


What you said is nothing. Answer my question of why we aren't using groaning and screaming as the pillars of psychology. What you did was just exactly what I predicted you would, weasel yourself out of it by saying it gives you *something* even if you know it's bullshit, and then turn around and say these other horoscope tests are scientifically proven, without elaborating even a tiny bit.
I used to take these tests too when I was young and retarded, but they truly say nothing about who you are, all they do is say who you think you are.


So since you are being rather rude you are incapable of nuance yes? You have fact brain? Do you have autism spectrum disorder? These are serious questions, if a little rude. I am not weaseling or making excuses out of anything because I am being entirely transparent with what I mean and have nothing to hide. Maybe if you were less autistic and chan brained you would take a moment to reconsider what you are replying to, as I just have re-reading your reply. I'm assuming you have taken note that I mentioned MBTI is objectively pseudo-scientific. Assuming we are on the same page, the other two personality measurements I mentioned the Big 5/Hexaco 5 factor are indeed scientifically validated measurements of a person's psychology.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Five_personality_traits https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HEXACO_model_of_personality_structure These tests have replicable results near universally accepted by the scientific community, it's not a matter of contention on if these traits exist, only the finder intricacies of them, which you know nothing about. I seriously doubt you would be willing to deny the dichotomy for example between introversion/extroversion nor how it would relate to you yourself or people you know, unless you are being willfully pigheaded for the purpose of "winning" an argument. Here take this test and post your results, I already have an idea of what you will get and I am curious if I will turn out right: https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/IPIP-BFFM/


>I seriously doubt you would be willing to deny the dichotomy for example between introversion/extroversion
I'm not denying a dichotomy, I'm denying that these are fundamental aspects of who we are. Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert may be dependent on whether you've had your breakfast.
Now, I'll ask again, please go and explain to me why I should give a fucking shit about this dichotomy.
>Here take this test and post your results
I've taken these before, and I'll get some variation of INTP and ENFP.


> I'm denying that these are fundamental aspects of who we are
Okay but they are though, objectively speaking.
>Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert may be dependent on whether you've had your breakfast.
Yes factors like this fluctuate over time and under different circumstances, however they remain stable over time as tendencies. Some people will always be more extroverted or introverted than others, etc. And this has a large and predictable impact on how people interact with one another. For example closeminded people tend to be more conservative/right wing, extroverted/introverted people are more common in certain occupations, and so on.

>I've taken these before, and I'll get some variation of INTP and ENFP.

The test I linked you is for the big 5, i.e. an actually scientifically validated one.

Yes, when I was in my mid teens and was being pressured to 'pick a path in life' I came to realize, by observing the lives of people that at the time I looked up to and analyzing the overall trends of the economy, that this whole fairy tale about "following your dreams and finding your passion, realize your potential through meritocracy" was a load of bullshit. People were constantly complaining about suffering abuse in the workplace, feeling alienated and unfulfilled, and over all even if they made a respectable amount of money, by their admission, had been dealt a shitty hand and only used ad hoc justifications (eg. having children) for continuing a miserable existence no one wants. You would have to be braindead to want such a life for yourself, and heartless to want it for others. Thankfully I never went through with my rushed decision to go to law school out of depression.

It hit me very hard because people around me molded my identity around performing well in this technocratic hellhole by attending a private school (thanks to a student grant given due to my grades) for the illusion of upwards class mobility into petite-bourgeois, so having everything I had known until then shattered left me confused, resentful, directionless and ashamed of not knowing what to do for the first time in my life. I couldn't tell anyone how everything felt out of fear of being ostracized by my peers and 'loved ones' who didn't love me but their image of themselves in me, so I just bottled it up and when passive-aggressively chastised about why I was starting to do worse socially and academically I just made shit up like falling in love with a girl I met through the internet but lived far away in Mallorca among other things to deflect.

Eventually I further drifted away into isolation, losing friends little by little, missing opportunities for meaningful romantic relationships, getting out of shape, abandoning any notion of grooming and eventually dropping out of high-school in my last year, after which I basically just laid down to rot for two years.

Eventually I would finish high-school through alternative means while jumping between unemployment, shitty dead end jobs with horrible wages and environments and working in the informal economy for little yield, all while not having friends since I left school and only having a few short lived flings in terms of intimacy. All while my 'loved ones' talked shit about me behind my back for being introverted and because I wasn't their vessel to vicariously live through and then wondering why I don't want to have much to do with them as they faint concern over my decay for the sake of their self righteousness rather than genuine care.

Nowadays I'm doing a bit better as in more stable by feeling liberated out of meaninglessness, I've been accumulating literature on improving my social skills, how to become more goal oriented, looked into getting a career, have been working out hoping it would put me back on track but it just doesn't seem worth it given the direction of the world on top of me not deriving meaningful enjoyment out of basically anything for years now, at best I can muster feeling amused or distracted by doing something like browsing imageboards or watching videos. Even the drive of curiosity for new knowledge and it's interconnections that drove me to excel at school and wanting to socialize when I was more innocent is completely gone, I constantly space out when trying to read and simply don't feel like I want anything out of life just to disappear and be forgotten. I want to pursue my interest but I don't have any, and don't know how to resurrect that drive, how to live again after so many years wasted.

Today the most I feel is a burning desire to tear all of these institutions down, but feel frustrated and embarrassed by not knowing how to do so without reproducing this hellscape under a different presentation by repeating the mistakes of past movements.


>objectively speaking, scientifically validated, trust me bro etc. etc.
You're boring.

I read everything you said.
I can relate a lot.
Do you have narcissistic parents as well?

Anyways this isn't the sort of world people are meant to be living in, it makes perfect sense that an out of the box thinker would grow up in dysfunction and existential dread.

very high openmindedness and introversion as well I see, low conscientousness. It makes sense that you are a nerd/deep thinker haha


I am serious, post big five, contribute to this thread

Well, I wouldn't say narcissistic they simply are completely different personality wise, but they definitely had a conception of parenting akin to playing with a Tamagochi as in throwing food and commodities and not even to a decent rate, and considered themselves good parents because they didn't put me through the same suffering their parents did (beatings, child labour) and for that I'm thankful for. They always had the best intentions in their hearths when forcing all of these conventions on me and growing up I looked up to and adored them, which is what makes it all that more hurtful and disappointing given that one of the reasons I was driven to excel academically was to gain their approval, because they would make me feel defective for being introverted and/or not intuitively understanding a small fraction of social norms sometimes even mocking and insulting me, on top of emotionally manipulating me to attend social events full of adults that I didn't want to attend to 'straighten me up' and make me 'normal' I never felt like their loved child, just a trophy to be paraded around due to my grades

> unless you are being willfully pigheaded for the purpose of "winning" an argument


Is everyone on this website this damaged?


Interesting results for honesty-humility, looks similar to mine for that factor:

Just from this little snapshot that sounds like emotional abuse and neglect dude. Not trying to shame your parents or anything or make you feel bad, or imply they were bad parents. But that must have been really hurtful growing up.


Yes, everyone here is mentally here, otherwise we wouldn't use imageboards.


After reading this whole thread, when you think about it, it's pretty funny that Bee, an INFP by admission, started this thread and probably has already forgotten about it.


I really liked INFP & INTJ cafe, the INTJ girl was very cute.


what does this mean


Oversensitive sperg.

>dominant introverted intuition
Hello there


This INTJ are psychos meme is stupid imo. intuitives tend to be nerds/deep thinkers/little scientists/visionaries. That type of mindset isn't well suited to naked egoism. Probably most dark personalities are gonna be extroverted sensors. Even machievellians would be more like ISTJ/ISTP again imo, with the notable exception of ENTJ which is the most practical and material focused of intuitives.


what is that all about?


jungian psuedoscience


Have you guys identified as different types throughout life?


A somewhat pseudoscientific way of classifying varying personality traits according to types, with a focus around what cognitive functions a given person will use more or less, and how that effects a person's personality. It's not based in hard science like say the big five or hexaco models of personality traits, however personally I find it useful for getting a vague idea of what someone is like according to how they would classify themselves. Feel free to try the tests posted here and report back with your results if you are interested.


I frequently type switched in a fbi.gov about the MBTI just to fuck with people.


I just really like the memes.



wtf I hate mbti now?

You know what's really funny about MBTI if Jung were still alive he would probably unalive himself for what Jungian Typology had become. Dude had never intended his theories to be another way for society to trap them in oversimplified, stereotypical roles (I mean he was a bit sexist but that's another discussion for another day). He made up this entire theory with the understanding that it's not falsifiable and it should only be used as a tool to help patients in his therapy sessions to help frame their experiences.

For example, you feel trapped by a persona you feel you must adhere to because you feel everyone will hate you if you don't. However, you get extremely angry when others say what they want and act however they want. You do everything in your power to keep them in line because their unpredictability is untasteful. Untasteful for who? Why is it that when you become angry and control other people to the point of driving them away it's good but when others are acting in a diiferent but harmless manner it's bad? Who are you really angry at? You seem to fit under the archetype of extroverted feeling, let's explore the light and shadow concepts existing in this scenario.

That's it, nothing more. Everything is just capitalist nonsense that was expanded upon two sisters' work who also admitted that their indicator's usage should be kept on a limited basis. Capitalism took a tool that could have been to help people realize the spooks society and capitalism feed them as well as the lies they tell themselves which harms the people around them as another way to abstract the relationships we have with one another. It's far more easier to call someone a dumb ESFP who doesn't understand you than realize that that person is just a projection of what you might become if didn't repress your personality to sell yourself to porky.

I don't expect people to suddenly change their whole perspective on MBTI but I think it's wrong to dismiss it for reasons the originator never even promised he would achieve.


Anyone else feel slightly embarrassed over taking MBTI too seriously in the past?


not at all
I have none of the shame I should be having


What about you? Also what type are you?


good point
it is kind of just a weird self inflicted caste system in a way or like some mental illness identity but whatever I get the sense anyways that it is helpful for thinking about the similarities and differences of people, in a package stimulating and memeish enough to not roll right off my polished smooth and ADD addled internet receptacle organ
