I'm curious as to what "score" certain people on DDO have on this personality test.

While we are at it - if anyone has any comments about the test itself, go right ahead.

Every time I have taken it I have been an INTP.

I love these things. I'm INTJ, both now and in college. My introverted and thinking qualities are the most strongly expressed.

ONLINE VERSION OF THIS TEST FOUND HERE: http://www.humanmetrics.com...

It would be interesting to see a graph similar to the political graph for this.

I mostly get INTJ when I take these but sometimes get an INTP.

I found this page to be interesting: http://www.personalitypage.com...

A description for all other classes can be found on the aforementioned site.

If enough people post their result I will put something together. At the very least it will offer some entertainment value.

I imagine (I) and (T) will be overrepresented here. We'll see...

I'd also be interested to hear if everyone thinks the description of their type matches their personality.

I found that mine was a very close match, almost eerily so.

This site has interesting descriptions of all 16 types, as well as famous people with each type, ideal jobs for each, etc.

My typing is eerily accurate, as well.

Facebook's myPersonality test showed me as an ENTP. Not particularly interested in taking the same test you guys did as I've taken several of these and gotten similar results before and I've got work to do, but I am interested in a possible stat list like the political compass, so I'm adding mine to get a list kind of started.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

I did the test that L-M posted and I came up as INTP. Not sure how well suited that is to me, because while there is some aspects of it that I can agree with, there is others I'm more fuzzy on - but alas, that is my result.

Agreed completely.

And, uh, I'm an INTP.

Ehhhhh Myer Briggs Type Indicator has poor validity, average reliability. Any test you do on-line will be 'best guess' at the contents of the copyrighted test itself i.e. all on-line results are invalid, not tested, not standardised and simply give you a score of the test itself and not a score of any measurable construct. The actual tests purpose was originally for organisational psychology (aka industrial psychology, occupational psychology) - where those that ask for such testing tend to be less aware of what psychometric standards are. As a clinical tool, its use would be severely limited i.e. professionally it should not be used at all - including organisational psychologists.

I knew Puck was going to mention credibility.

I realize that it lacks reliability, even if it is administered by professionals. However, it can be used as a general tool for learning about yourself. I posted here more for entertainment value, Puck the Killjoy. :)

As for the Forer effect, each of the categories are different enough to produce somewhat reliable results. For instance, the difference between introversion and extroversion is easy to ascertain and describe. The same is true of the other categories.

The unreliability and potential for vagueness may come when people attempt to combine the categories and explain how they interact. The Forer Effect may be a danger for some who read the desriptions, but generally speaking they are specific enough that it shouldn't be a problem for most people.

Contradiction in statistics. :P An unreliable test cannot be valid as well, meaning any results it purports to tell you is essentially worthless. You can have reliable and non-valid tests, but without reliability, there can be no validity.

I posted here more for entertainment value, Puck the Killjoy. :)

Yeah I know. :P You may be surprised though as to how many and to the extremes people take this test in particular as gospel.

As for the Forer effect, each of the categories are different enough to produce somewhat reliable results.

The same is said of astrology, which people profess readily has even more categories of clear distinction. People 'eyeballing' it as it were is what's known as face validity - it's another worthless value in statistics, as valid as an amputee complaining to a doctor about pain in a phantom limb. It's why, 'this looks right' never suffices as a test measure of its validity (it has purposes elsewhere, not relevant here though).

For instance, the difference between introversion and extroversion is easy to ascertain and describe. The same is true of the other categories.

Jung's theory of typology (of which the test is based) posits introversion and extroversion as separate traits, not ends of the one scale (one of the issues of the test is its questions don't measure the theory - they test as if they were the same scale) - in any event the introversion/extroversion scale is validly demonstrated in other measures - of which this isn't even one . As for the other categories they are fail also, I could bore you with the actual statistics, but I figure most people have stopped reading by now. ^^

The unreliability and potential for vagueness may come when people attempt to combine the categories and explain how they interact.

The presupposes there is anything even there to consider as 'correct categories' - certainly the data doesn't show it - the test does not measure onto 8 distinct factors, and the reliability shows people don't test to them accurately/consistently either.

The Forer Effect may be a danger for some who read the descriptions, but generally speaking they are specific enough that it shouldn't be a problem for most people.

Much like astrology, they speak to vagueness and easily affirmed broad statements. :P One of the main issues is that population traits rarely categorise, they scale, and most naturally occurring population traits fit a bell curve e.g. height, IQ - all of which is counter to category trait theory.

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best... ENTPs are as innovative and ingenious at problem-solving as they are at verbal gymnastics; on occasion, however, they manage to outsmart themselves... ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport."

I'm the mastermind, INTJ. Funny how we have so many INTJs here... it's the rarest of the scorings. I attended some extensive personality lectures on the subject for my psychology major and INTJ doesn't show up nearly as frequently as in this thread. Seems debate.org attracts INTJs : )
I could give a f about no haters as long as my ishes love me.

This is what I excpected as well. DDO would have (I) and (T) overrepresented because of the nature of the website and who it attracts. Most people seem to be INTP and INTJ. NT seems to be a prerequisite for interest in DDO :)

INTP

So that you don't feel too special, I have taken an official version as well ;P

I do agree with your concern that some people take these tests too seriously and take the analyses as fact. I don't think many people here have to worry about that though. So we can extract some entertainment out of it.
