Every time I take these, I'm either a Field Marshal or Inventor. This time, I'm the Inventor although I still think I'm more of a Field Marshal.

Extroverted - 44
Intuitive - 50
Thinking - 75
Perceiving - 11

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best. The professor who juggles half a dozen ideas for research papers and grant proposals in his mind while giving a highly entertaining lecture on an abstruse subject is a classic example of the type. So is the stand-up comedian whose lampoons are not only funny, but incisively accurate.

I always got INTP, so one day I joined an INTP group somewhere on the internet, but felt I had to leave after a week due to the amount of grief received from other so called INTPs.

I also found it hard to swallow the massive amount of irony - I mean really, a group - for introverts!

Its a very good way of understanding people, although the danger is once they have learned of their personality type they can get a bit full of themselves (especially the ones that didn't understand a lot of the words and blagged their way through it).

Its remains a very interesting and approachable study though.

Every time I take this test I get the same result: ENFP

According to what I've read, ENFP's account for only 2-8% of the population. I don't know if that is good or bad.

I had to do my Meyers-Briggs last semester for an assignment in one of my courses, so I won't be pasting up the various percentages of each catagory. I don't have that information any longer. My personality type, however is Champion.


Like the other Idealists, Champions are rather rare, say three or four percent of the population, but even more than the others they consider intense emotional experiences as being vital to a full life. Champions have a wide range and variety of emotions, and a great passion for novelty. They see life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil, and they want to experience all the meaningful events and fascinating people in the world. The most outgoing of the Idealists, Champions often can't wait to tell others of their extraordinary experiences. Champions can be tireless in talking with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out. And usually this is not simple storytelling; Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions. Their strong drive to speak out on issues and events, along with their boundless enthusiasm and natural talent with language, makes them the most vivacious and inspiring of all the types.

Communication tip for ENFP employee with a Rational boss Fiercely individualistic, Champions strive toward a kind of personal authenticity, and this intention always to be themselves is usually quite attractive to others. At the same time, Champions have outstanding intuitive powers and can tell what is going on inside of others, reading hidden emotions and giving special significance to words or actions. In fact, Champions are constantly scanning the social environment, and no intriguing character or silent motive is likely to escape their attention. Far more than the other Idealists, Champions are keen and probing observers of the people around them, and are capable of intense concentration on another individual. Their attention is rarely passive or casual. On the contrary, Champions tend to be extra sensitive and alert, always ready for emergencies, always on the lookout for what's possible.

Champions are good with people and usually have a wide range of personal relationships. They are warm and full of energy with their friends. They are likable and at ease with colleagues, and handle their employees or students with great skill. They are good in public and on the telephone, and are so spontaneous and dramatic that others love to be in their company. Champions are positive, exuberant people, and often their confidence in the goodness of life and of human nature makes good things happen.

Misoir, I saw in your original post, that INFJ (Which I am) "are the rarest" accounting for only "1 to 3% of the population" this is so accurate. All my life, I never felt part of other humans mostly, I felt like an (ET) alien that got stranded here. Others' 'ways' baffle me. I was assigned a 'Personality Disorder' diagnosis because of that.

Did mine, copy/paste of result.

Type - ISFJ - Protector.
Introvert - 89
Sensing - 25
Feeling - 62
Judging - 1


-very expressed introvert
-moderately expressed sensing personality
-distinctively expressed feeling personality
-slightly expressed judging personality

We are lucky that Protectors make up as much as ten percent the population, because their primary interest is in the safety and security of those they care about - their family, their circle of friends, their students, their patients, their boss, their fellow-workers, or their employees. Protectors have an extraordinary sense of loyalty and responsibility in their makeup, and seem fulfilled in the degree they can shield others from the dirt and dangers of the world. Speculating and experimenting do not intrigue Protectors, who prefer to make do with time-honored and time-tested products and procedures rather than change to new. At work Protectors are seldom happy in situations where the rules are constantly changing, or where long-established ways of doing things are not respected. For their part, Protectors value tradition, both in the culture and in their family. Protectors believe deeply in the stability of social ranking conferred by birth, titles, offices, and credentials. And they cherish family history and enjoy caring for family property, from houses to heirlooms.

Wanting to be of service to others, Protectors find great satisfaction in assisting the downtrodden, and can deal with disability and neediness in others better than any other type. They are not as outgoing and talkative as the Provider Guardians [ESFJs], and their shyness is often misjudged as stiffness, even coldness, when in truth Protectors are warm-hearted and sympathetic, giving happily of themselves to those in need.



Their reserve ought really to be seen as an expression of their sincerity and seriousness of purpose. The most diligent of all the types, Protectors are willing to work long, hard hours quietly doing all the thankless jobs that others manage to avoid. Protectors are quite happy working alone; in fact, in positions of authority they may try to do everything themselves rather than direct others to get the job done. Thoroughness and frugality are also virtues for them. When Protectors undertake a task, they will complete it if humanly possible. They also know better than any other type the value of a dollar, and they abhor the squandering or misuse of money. To save, to put something aside against an unpredictable future, to prepare for emergencies-these are actions near and dear to the Protector's heart. For all these reasons, Protectors are frequently overworked, just as they are frequently misunderstood and undervalued. Their contributions, and also their economies, are often taken for granted, and they rarely get the gratitude they deserve.


I am really surprised how spot on this is! Incredible! Thanks for the link OP.

I got INTJ. Is that good or bad? I followed a link : INTJ type description by D.Keirsey. It was about INTJ being a mastermind. Not sure about that.

If you follow the link that tells about your score, it seems to say the same about every one. A small percentage of the population is YOUR particular score. Seems EVERYONE is special according to this.

No. It doesn't work like that. It depends on the individual, the job they are applying for, and the MBTI readouts of the coworkers already in place. My job is to determine not only whether or not they are capable of doing the job, but also how well they will fit in with their coworkers and how to place the applicant in such a manner as to avoid conflict before it arises. (IE: not placing an INFP male who just got divorced from an ENTJ female with domineering personality traits who is still dragging him through court for alimony as a starter on the same team with another female matching the profile of his ex-wife.)

Sometimes, an individual will apply for one job, and after I screen them it turns out they are more well suited to a different job in the same company (that ends up paying better). So, it's not about finding reasons to disqualify people, it's about studying the edges of the puzzle pieces to see where they fit best in the greater picture. Actually, less than 15% of my employee screenings result in a denial of employment (by the time they get to me, they've already been through several wringers) and out of that...none of those denials are based on the outcome of an MBTI.

Technically there is a low percentage because there are 16 different varieties that can occur.

lol.. i got mastermind too...

i think we will see alot of similar results on this board as we are all a certain type that questions the status quo


Makes sense.
I took this test about a year ago and am the same INTJ. Interesting to note that I am a woman and I think there less than 1% women INTJ's.

The military uses this when pairing senior enlisted advisors with Commanders - not to screen them out but to mesh two type A people together with complementary traits rather than sticking two people of the same harsh (or lax) leadership style in an organization where they clash or fail.

If nothing else it gives the two of them insight into the personality of the other so that they can develop a positive Command Climate in a good way.

Oh bugger! I appear to have had a complete personality change since the last time I took it.

I used to be a Mastermind and now I'm not


Healer? Now really...and we're seemingly so common...must be a virus of some kind...catchy...

I knew I shouldn't have gone and got in touch with my feminine side


I blame 'Fluffies'. You know who YOU are!

Ofcourse...it should be noted that this is a fair representation of my feminine side...



...my masculine is much 'softer'...but lazier...he spends all his time thinking I suppose, she's the 'do-er'...haha!

Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
1 75 25 11

Functional Analysis:
Extraverted iNtuition
The physical world, both geos and kosmos, is the ENFP's primary source of information. Rather than sensing things as they are, dominant intuition is sensitive to things as they might be. These extraverted intuitives are most adept with patterns and connections. Their natural inclination is toward relationships, especially among people or living things.

Intuition leans heavily on feeling for meaning and focus. Its best patterns reflect the interesting points of people, giving rise to caricatures of manner, speech and expression.
Introverted Feeling
Auxiliary feeling is nonverbally implied more often than it is openly expressed. When expressed, this logic has an aura of romance and purity that may seem out of place in this flawed, imperfect world. In its own defense, feeling judgement frequently and fleetly gives way to humor. ENFPs who publicize their feelings too often may put off some of the crowd of friends they naturally attract.
Extraverted Thinking
Thinking, the process which runs to impersonal conclusions, holds the extraverted tertiary position. Used on an occasional basis, ENFPs may benefit greatly from this ability. Less mature and lacking the polish of higher order functions, Thinking is not well suited to be used as a prominent function. As with other FP types, the ENFP unwary of Thinking's limitations may find themselves most positively mistaken.
Introverted Sensing
Sensing, the least discernible ENFP function, resides in the inner world where reality is reduced to symbols and icons--ideas representing essences of external realities. Under the influence of the ever-present intuition, the ENFP's sensory perceptions are in danger of being replaced by hypothetical data consistent with pattern and paradigm. When it is protected and nourished, introverted sensing provides information about the fixed. From such firm anchoring ENFPs are best equipped to launch into thousands of plausibilities and curiosities yet to be imagined.

Perhaps the combination of introverted Feeling and childlike introverted Sensing is responsible for the silent pull of ENFPs to the wishes of parents, authority figures and friends. Or perhaps it's the predominance of indecisive intuition in combination with the ambiguity of secondary Fi and tertiary Te that induces these kind souls to capitulate even life-affecting decisions. Whatever the dynamic, ENFPs are strongly influenced by the opinions of their friends.
