    Most of you have probably heard of the Myers-Briggs personality test, a personality test that classifies people as one of 16 personality types based on 5 personality traits. If you haven't, you can take the test right here for free. I found it scarily accurate. So here is the question I pose to all of you: What is your personality type? I think it would be interesting to see if there are any trends among personalities in the TF2Maps community.

    Me, I am an INTP-T ("The Logician"), which stands for:
    -Introverted
    -iNtuitive
    -Thinking
    -Prospecting
    -Turbulent
    You can see my profile here.

    Nah, I can't stand these tests, I will act differently in these example situations depending on the context I am in.

    "You do not usually initiate conversations."

    Like how do you even answer that when there are a large amount on uncounted variables. Do I know the person I would be talking to already? Are they a stranger on the bus? Maybe I live in an environment where people are trigger happy on starting conversations before I get a chance and even though I would normally start the conversation these social speed runners are tipping the scale away from its natural state and making it look like I never start conversations. Is the person cute. Is there a relevant event going on. Are we talking in person or online?

    And to add extra salt to the grain stash I had a major personality shift a long while ago so I don't see it as something that is so locked in and measurable. Especially with a test like this.

    Perhaps I'm being overly cynical, but these kind of tests remind me a lot of those low quality newspaper-horoscopes where every answer feels applicable.

    Yeah, I remember getting Campaigner, which doesn't feel right. I personally feel more like a Logician.

    I scored as a ENTP-T Debater, which stands for:

    -Extraverted
    -Intuitive
    -Thinking
    -Prospecting
    -Turbulent

    I wouldn't outright call myself totally extroverted (in fact, the ENT parts were a near 50/50 split in outcomes) but I do guess much of the other things do apply.

    I feel like every time I've ever taken one of these tests I've scored completely differently.

    This test is like those Horoscopes except less terrible, but more obnoxious. I can't tolerate people using their astrological signs to describe themselves. So if I encounter anyone who introduces themselves as some Meyer-Briggs personality type, they just changed the social event into a PVP enabled zone. Also using video game terminology to describe responses to specific situations is worse, and applying irony can't save it, but I am an INTP-A, so I use my own logic, believe in my own justice, and I don't care what others think.

    I’m similar to many of the above in that I don’t like the Myers-Briggs classifications, and also am able to direct people to a good video about it from “Adam Ruins Everything”:

    My favourite people are people who are super elitist about being a certain personality type for some ridiculous reason.

    Executive (ESTJ-a).

    Then again I don't usually take these things seriously, despite me trying my best to be honest on tests such as these.

    ISTP

    I know the test doesn't represent all personalities but what else you would expect when there is only 16 different outcomes... That being said, I can identify with many ISTP stories and stereotypes

    All of my scores are about 40–60 to 50–50. Like I fully expected…
    There's little point to this test, when you're adaptive person and/or have major personality impacting disorders like bipolar, depression, schizo-psychotic stuff…
