This is what I got about a decade ago and just now got again:
ISTJ - Inspector
10% of the population makes us pretty common, I guess!

I definitely follow this. I'm very by-the-book, and anyone on ATS who's read my posts knows I tend to need proof of the fact that the PTB are wrong/lying. I try to keep the sheeple in line!

Honestly, I do take my traditional lifestyle seriously. Anything out of the realm of accepted behavior/reality I deem negative. Especially the types I call "arteests" (artists) that have their coffee shops and stylishly-homosexual friends and consider themselves better because they like sushi and beatnik-poetry. (I kinda like sushi, but whatever.) In engineering we like to call these people "liberal artists" (just kidding).

On the good side, I meet any deadline no matter how absurd and I will make any sacrifice for my family.

Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving

The Inspirer

As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.

ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.

ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them. Project-oriented, they may go through several different careers during their lifetime. To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They're constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP's life, and because they are focused on keeping "centered", the ENFP is usually an intense individual, with highly evolved values.

An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves, and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be "gushy" and insincere, and generally "overdo" in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level.

Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivous to these types of concerns. When they do have to perform these tasks, they do not enjoy themselves. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP's family members.

An ENFP who has "gone wrong" may be quite manipulative - and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.

ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

Healers present a calm and serene face to the world, and can seem shy, even distant around others.

Healers care deeply about the inner life of a few special persons, or about a favorite cause in the world at large. And their great passion is to heal the conflicts that trouble individuals, or that divide groups, and thus to bring wholeness, or health, to themselves, their loved ones, and their community.

Ahh, another healer. Apparently we are less than 1 percent of the population. Go us!

Yayyy go us indeed....hang on! if we're less than 1% of the population, and we are both in this thread then what are the odds of that

It must be accurate though cos i actually am a counsellor, i do try and bring people together and i gotta admit i fancied the hell out of princess Diana who was a healer too!

Mine rang up an INTJ - systems builder.

I did this about 10 years ago and it was the same. No wonder I have spent most of my life loving science and working in information technology.

I scored INTJ...would have to say it is pretty accruate. I especially liked the job description part. Not only does it match my zodiac description, but it also matches what I am attending college for.

INFJ here.

"Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types."

I've seen relatively many INFJ type, or closely related, people in this thread.

So many INFJ's in just 3 pages with replies is way over 1%.

Mine is ENTJ. Very accurate test. I looked at the career suggestion, it suggested engineering, which is what I want to do, computer hardware engineering. Also, law, politics, scientific jobs, medical doctor, counseling, I have interest in all of them, except counseling, ha. It said hardly 2% of the world has this personality. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are two examples who have this personality. Maybe I'll strike it rich someday.

ENTP "the rational"...fits well I think.

I analyze things waaaaay to much and try to always come to a logical conclusion.

I believe I am somewhat of a realistic optimist and somewhat of an inventor as described in the article...

Hmm, INTJ is my strongest. I usually am more introverted, but things are a little more up in the air since I'm 17. I'm sure I'll be a little more defined after a few years on my own.

The Protector

As an INFJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you take things in primarily via intuition. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit with your personal value system.

INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types.

INFJs place great importance on havings things orderly and systematic in their outer world. They put a lot of energy into identifying the best system for getting things done, and constantly define and re-define the priorities in their lives. On the other hand, INFJs operate within themselves on an intuitive basis which is entirely spontaneous. They know things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. They are usually right, and they usually know it. Consequently, INFJs put a tremendous amount of faith into their instincts and intuitions. This is something of a conflict between the inner and outer worlds, and may result in the INFJ not being as organized as other Judging types tend to be. Or we may see some signs of disarray in an otherwise orderly tendency, such as a consistently messy desk.

INFJs have uncanny insight into people and situations. They get "feelings" about things and intuitively understand them. As an extreme example, some INFJs report experiences of a psychic nature, such as getting strong feelings about there being a problem with a loved one, and discovering later that they were in a car accident. This is the sort of thing that other types may scorn and scoff at, and the INFJ themself does not really understand their intuition at a level which can be verbalized. Consequently, most INFJs are protective of their inner selves, sharing only what they choose to share when they choose to share it. They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive.

But the INFJ is as genuinely warm as they are complex. INFJs hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. INFJs are concerned for people's feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive the normally peaceful INFJ into a state of agitation or charged anger. They may tend to internalize conflict into their bodies, and experience health problems when under a lot of stress.

Because the INFJ has such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in an INFJ stubborness and tendency to ignore other people's opinions. They believe that they're right. On the other hand, INFJ is a perfectionist who doubts that they are living up to their full potential. INFJs are rarely at complete peace with themselves - there's always something else they should be doing to improve themselves and the world around them. They believe in constant growth, and don't often take time to revel in their accomplishments. They have strong value systems, and need to live their lives in accordance with what they feel is right. In deference to the Feeling aspect of their personalities, INFJs are in some ways gentle and easy going. Conversely, they have very high expectations of themselves, and frequently of their families. They don't believe in compromising their ideals.

INFJ is a natural nurturer; patient, devoted and protective. They make loving parents and usually have strong bonds with their offspring. They have high expectations of their children, and push them to be the best that they can be. This can sometimes manifest itself in the INFJ being hard-nosed and stubborn. But generally, children of an INFJ get devoted and sincere parental guidance, combined with deep caring.

In the workplace, the INFJ usually shows up in areas where they can be creative and somewhat independent. They have a natural affinity for art, and many excel in the sciences, where they make use of their intuition. INFJs can also be found in service-oriented professions. They are not good at dealing with minutia or very detailed tasks. The INFJ will either avoid such things, or else go to the other extreme and become enveloped in the details to the extent that they can no longer see the big picture. An INFJ who has gone the route of becoming meticulous about details may be highly critical of other individuals who are not.

The INFJ individual is gifted in ways that other types are not. Life is not necessarily easy for the INFJ, but they are capable of great depth of feeling and personal achievement.

How fun!! I am an IFSP. Which means I'm under the artist, specifically 'composer' category. It says I am keenly aware of how things look, taste, feel and smell, which is correct. I'm a baker and I use no real recipes, I use My own sense of sight and taste/texture to get the result I'm looking for. I'm constantly creating new pastries/desserts. It says I have a strong sense of values and live My life according to what I feel is right. Spot on as I use My moral compass to make any needed decisions and rebel against anything that might conflict with My goal. I'm interested in contributing to others sense of well-being and happiness. I'm kind, gentle and sensitive with others and I'm warm and sympathetic. I feel that's pretty much Me in a nutshell. I go out of My way to make others feel better about themselves. I get so much satisfaction talking to that homeless guy who everyone else avoids, trying to make Him feel just as important as the business man in the 3 piece suit-because he is. I try to give more of Myself to those who need it the most. There's not one person that I come into contact with that I can't learn from. Anyway, it was me through and through. Thanks for the opportunity to take the test. I've actually learned that I'm on the right track.

Peace. K*
