Human Metrics QUESTION


One of my sisters sent me a link to this website www.humanmetrics.com, which has a series of Human Metrics tests. For instance:

Carl Jung classified people using three criteria:
Extraversion – Introversion
Sensing – Intuition
Thinking – Feeling
Isabel Briggs Myers added a fourth criterion, Judging-Perceiving.
The first letters of the different combinations of the four criteria denote a type formula. For example:
ISTJ – Introvert Sensing Thinking Judging
Upon completing Jung Typology Test you will obtain your type formula, strengths of the preferences and the type description. It may help you to identify your life style in general and with respect to the specific areas of activity. You will also obtain the list of the most suitable career choices based on your personality, along with some educational institutions where you can receive a relevant degree or a training.

Well, I’ve taken these tests before, but I gave it another shot.

Your Type is
ISFP
Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
44 12 62 44

Qualitative analysis of your type formula
You are:
moderately expressed introvert
slightly expressed sensing personality
distinctively expressed feeling personality
moderately expressed perceiving personality

I tell people I’m basically introverted, but few of them believe me.

How did you fare on this or similar tests, or any of the other ones offered up?

  1. Whenever I’ve taken a Myers Briggs test, I’ve come out as an ENTP with emphasis on the N.

    Entroversion and introversion don’t necessarily mean that someone is an extrovert or introvert. It’s more how they deal with the world, so an ‘extrovert’ talks things through (with others or to themselves) whereas an introvert will think things through and reach a conclusion on their own.

    The most fun I had with this sort of test was with the Enneagram which takes account of your good days and bad days. There are online tests, but I soent a couple of days on it and really enjoyed it — it was good to think about just men for once!

  2. Much of this is taken from Meyers-Briggs personality typing (based on Jung’s work).

    My type is Introverted Introverted (N) Feeling and Judging, or INFJ. Short hand, it’s the “counselor” subtype, which is pretty cool.

    One of my favorite sites (which I use for job seeking and career thinking) is the MAPP at Assessment.com. It’s a little more intricate than the Meyers-Briggs, but both allow me to have a much better, more thorough understanding of myself.

  3. With no surprise, I came up with INFP, with strength of preferences respectively being 56, 38, 12, 44. Once when I took this test I was all intuitive with no sensing, and in other instances I have been a draw between thinking and feeling. The thing that is a bit weird to me, but weird likely because of my ignorance regarding the full significance of these dichotomies, is that though I am not an empiricist, I can be quite attuned to my environment, and so it surprises me that I am not stronger on the sensing side. This time around, when I clicked on the career indicator I saw at the top of the page counselor, religious educator, and educator. Hmmm, you think?!?

  4. Just to show that all your readers are not Introverts, I did the test and came out ENFJ, with 78% on the E. Among the career ideas was management – that’s right on, as I just finished an MBA (top of the class). However, most of the famous people with my condition were politicians – YUCK. The test seemed to miss the part where I need to believe in what I do! Counselor? I’m not empathetic enough. Heading toward nonprofit work in reality.

    The first time I did this test was during a workshop many many years ago … when you had to use paper. My friend who went to the weekend with me scored identically except he was introvert. We are both artists, so there’s something going on there. Fun post.

  5. When I found out abut my MBTI type – INTJ – finally, so many things made sense to me. For one thing, why it had been more difficult for me to develop good friendships with women. 65% of women in the U.S. make decisions with the “Feeling” preference, and I made them with the “Thinking” preference. Understanding this really helped me “reign in” my logical Thinking preference and relate to my women friends with the “Feeling” preference. For instance, I learned that I needed to let them know a little more about myself so that trust to develop, share with them some of my feelings, encourage them to share their feelings and be honest and sincere.
