UPDATE: I will do the final update on the list this evening (Tuesday, the 21st), so if you want to be included, put your type in the comments today.
Many of you have taken the personality quiz that’s been going around lately and have seen the lists of famous people with your personality type. I thought you might be interested in seeing lists of fellow bloggers and their personality types. Obviously, this isn’t a complete list, just a few of the bloggers in my bloghood who have recently posted their type.
Erin is conducting a poll at her site on personality types, so be sure to stop by her place and cast your vote.
The ENTJs should probably be at the top, The Chief or Field Marshal:
ENTJs are bound to lead others, and from an early age they can be observed taking command of groups.
Next the INTJs, The Strategist or Mastermind:
“INTJs apply the criterion “Does it work?” to everything.”
Makeesha (another girl INTJ!)
Jamie Arpin Ricci
Q. Is there a difference between male and female INTJs?
A. The only difference between male and female INTJs is that the females get more flack for their INTJ tendencies.
Q. Are female INTJs less feminine than women of other temperaments?
A. Female INTJs are just as feminine as they want to be. They can be as sweet as the next woman if they feel like it. They are just opinionated and don’t put up with stupidity for long.
Closely related, the INTP, The Engineer or Architect:
INTPs have the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge.
Next, an ENTP, The Originator or Inventor:
ENTPs are idea people. Their perceptive abilities cause them to see possibilities everywhere.
A couple of my favorite ISTJs, The Examiner or Inspector:
ISTJs are responsible, loyal and hard working. They are dedicated to everything they do and are very dependable.
Similarly, the ESTJs, The Overseer or Supervisor:
ESTJs make sure that everything is running smoothly and systematically. They honor traditions and laws.
Leading the polls so far, the INFPs, The Dreamer or Healer:
INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They often have a talent for language and writing. I’m glad that I know so many INFPs!
A more outgoing version, ENFPs, The Advocate or Champion:
ENFPs function as catalysts. Their leadership style is one of soliciting and recognizing others’ contributions and of evaluating the personal needs of their followers. This is the kind of leadership the church needs.
Jeff Smith (If you don’t know Jeff, be sure to visit his blog.)
The ENFJs, The Mentor or Teacher:
ENFJs are focused on understanding, supporting, and encouraging others. They make things happen for people, and get personal satisfaction from this.
A little quieter, the INFJs, The Confidant or Counselor:
INFJs are introspective, caring, sensitive, gentle and complex people that strive for peace and derive satisfaction from helping others.
In a class by herself, ESTP, The Persuader or Promoter:
Enthusiastic and excitable, ESTPs are doers who live in the world of action.
Next, an ISTP, The Craftsman:
ISTPs like to figure out how things work. They have great mechanical and technical skills.
If you want, I will update the list and add you to it. Just let me know your type in the comments, or if you post your results, I will link to your test.
