    Re: OT: MyersBriggs

    I just took the test. It is quite creepy how true it describes me!! ISFJ. Thanks for the link, that was fun I have a special devotion to St. Theresa of Calcutta so that was so neat to see she was an ISFJ, too!

    I’m having my husband take it next. We are so very different. It should be interesting!

We then took the result and read the summary for it on 16 personalities -- near perfect match. About to read Type in Mind's cognitive function write-up for his type.
      Everyone is at a family function and I’m home with a cold so I’m tackling more of this! My brain is a jumble looking at the type in mind site, lol. I’ve got Julie Andrews and “Do Re MI” running on repeat in my head. Did you input the email and take this assessment too or just look up the four letter code from the 16 personalities and then read the description?

      Okay, I went back and organized the information and see it more clearly now. I wish someone could take our “codes” and synthesize it and package up insights and tips into how to use the information to help us learn so that I can individualize their homeschooling experiences a bit more effectively with this information. I’m sure this gives away something about my type, lol!

        We’re in the same boat! Cold/flu here too. I had him take this assessment. When it gives the results, it includes the traditional four letter MB code. I then went over to 16 personalities and read their (far less dense!) summary. Still want to read the Type in Mind one though for more understanding on his cognitive function. My head couldn’t handle it today.

            Bean,

            I don't need much imagination. My last baby, Bonus Baby, gives all signs of being an INTJ. We barely need to speak throughout the day, we agree on so much.

            But I am guessing you'd say the same.

                I am an INTJ. I found a few of the questions a bit confusing on this version and my first try came out ISTJ, but the description was not me. When I went back to take it again I realized a couple of questions were sort of double negatives. I had my daughter take it and she is an ENTJ.

                What I thought was interesting was that the 16personalities site said these were the two top personalities to NOT be a stay at home parent, but here I am homeschooling. i find it a good fit :-)

                  Well Dorinda, you are also a full time homeschool teacher.

                  I have always worked at least part time or gone to school, mostly because I do better, but if I were homeschling all four of my kids at once, I think it would be enough.

                    Re: OT: MyersBriggs

                    I find my own results a bit confusing. My children and husband seem pretty spot on, but I am presenting as an ISTP. 16 personalities and the type mind site describe a risk taker and I consider myself risk averse. I don’t like heights, definitely not a physical thrill seeker. I went back and took it again thinking that I was subconsciously not “honest” with something but received the same result. Strange.

                    My son is an ENFP and we get along beautifully. I have the most personality “clashes” with my beloved husband who is an ESTJ, but that could just be marriage, lol. I feel like I’d need to study this for several months to understand the nuances.

                    My oldest daughter is an INTP and I feel like we can be quite a bit alike and there is only one different element between the ISTP, but the descriptors are quite different. It is fascinating really!
