Oh crap. I think they need to give us an IQ test first so the test is understood for your level of ignorance....I mean aptitude
ISTP: mechanic? I won't even bother to list the % that's too embarrassing.
I also checked the things I'm supposed to like and it doesn't fit. None of the types I checked and read really fit with me anyway.

There was another thread about Myers-Brigg personalities on ATS a couple months ago, and one thing that I thought was really interesting was how prevalent the Intuitive category is on ATS compared to the Internet as a whole and to the population average.
I've got to sign off right now, but I'll try to remember to search for the thread and the links tomorrow. In the meantime, I'd recommend keeping an eye out for that trend

I was classified as INTJ, "The Scientist". I agree with most of it, but I have never really considered myself introverted. I am actually very outgoing with people I am comfortable around.
Healers have a profound sense of idealism that comes from a strong personal sense of right and wrong. They conceive of the world as an ethical, honorable place, full of wondrous possibilities and potential goods. In fact, to understand Healers, we must understand that their deep commitment to the positive and the good is almost boundless and selfless, inspiring them to make extraordinary sacrifices for someone or something they believe in. Set off from the rest of humanity by their privacy and scarcity (around one percent of the population), Healers can feel even more isolated in the purity of their idealism.
Also, Healers might well feel a sense of separation because of their often misunderstood childhood. Healers live a fantasy-filled childhood-they are the prince or princess of fairy tales-an attitude which, sadly, is frowned upon, or even punished, by many parents. With parents who want them to get their head out of the clouds, Healers begin to believe they are bad to be so fanciful, so dreamy, and can come to see themselves as ugly ducklings. In truth, they are quite OK just as they are, only different from most others-swans reared in a family of ducks.
At work, Healers are adaptable, welcome new ideas and new information, are patient with complicated situations, but impatient with routine details. Healers are keenly aware of people and their feelings, and relate well with most others. Because of their deep-seated reserve, however, they can work quite happily alone. When making decisions, Healers follow their heart not their head, which means they can make errors of fact, but seldom of feeling. They have a natural interest in scholarly activities and demonstrate, like the other Idealists, a remarkable facility with language. They have a gift for interpreting stories, as well as for creating them, and thus often write in lyric, poetic fashion. Frequently they hear a call to go forth into the world and help others, a call they seem ready to answer, even if they must sacrifice their own comfort.

Hmm..I was just thinking that.
I'm checking in as the 5th INFP in this thread so far. I haven't counted the other types yet. Interesting considering we INFP's are only supposed to be around 1% to 4% of the population. I checked a few sites - some give us at around 1% others around 4%. I don't know which is correct.
Either way It seems we have a good number of "I" types popping up in this thread.
