    Inspired by RRD's "How are the parents doing?" thread, I thought I'd kick off a discussion of the MBTI typology to see if there are any patterns here among regular posters, because some personality "types" map more closely to OEs than others.

    (Full disclosure: I acknowledge the limitations inherent to the MBTI tool; this is just for fun! If people like, we can do OCEAN or another metric later...)

    For anyone who doesn't know their type, here is a quick and free online eval:

    Here's a quick summary of the 16 "types" for comparison's sake:

    I'm an ENTJ.

    ENTP.

    I would expect that the third letter is pretty common around here, but let's see what the data says.

    ENTJ, although it once came up as ENTP. Basically, difficult to live with and not necessarily understood at work. ;-)

    ENTP, though I'm a very weak "E"

    Maybe I'm just having a bad stretch, but I took the online version and came out an INTP-A. Weird. Or maybe not so weird.

    I got infj (-t). But the other than the I, all the other scores were 51 (the f) to 56%. I thought it described me quite well, but likely they all do (like a horoscope I assume, didn't read the rest though). Overall my scores most likely just mean I'm bland smile I'm very introverted though, but I already knew that.
