Personality Types



Personality types can have a significant impact on a group's ability to work together. You might find it worthwhile to take this test and find out what your own personality type is. Think about how it might affect your group interactions.

It should only take you a couple minutes to complete the test. For those of you who have taken the Myers-Briggs test before, it might be interesting to see if the results have changed since the last time you took it.

Mine did.

My type was ISFJ. I don't really agree with all of it. It mentioned something about never being forgetful. Well that right there is false! I bet if I take the exam another day or even right now, and my answers change a little bit, I won't be categorized as an ISFJ. Hmmm...let's check...

I found this test to be not very accurate of how I actually am. I agree with linda that if i decided to take this test again which I'm probably not that it would classify me as something totally different.

This is the second time that I've taken this test and each time I really don't agree with the results. I'm not such a fan of these kinds of things, especially when people actually make important decisions based on the results.

I took this test spring quarter for a CSE class, and the results now are remarkably consistent. Both times I was an ISTJ. I don't find this particularly surprising, especially for a personality test. The questions don't change and neither do my responses, so it seems unlikely the results would. I don't, however, put any stock in personality tests, they are interesting when you take them, but rarely entirely accurate and certainly not to be taken too seriously

One thing to consider is that the Myers-Briggs test is only one of many different diagnostic methods that are available. Many companies, like Boeing, have used different methods in their businesses.

According to the Seattle Times approximately 30% of companies are integrating some kind of assessment test into their hiring processes.

Yes, I agree that if the answer is changed, the type also would change. Retaking the test would definitely give different results.
