Personality to the letter

Father Jim Tucker is collecting the blogosphere's Myers-Briggs types. He's charted his results so far here. Interesting, but not surprising, that this group of bloggers is more likely to be intuitive and to be introverted than the population at large. I fit that pattern, being an INxP. The types of the few bloggers on the chart that I know aren't real surprising either: Tom is the classic INTP, Eve seems more F to me but that may be 'cause she's female (we're more allowed to show our emotions and all), and Steven being an INFJ also works for me.

I would have pegged Telford as the rare extrovert blogger, but he mentioned recently he tested smack in the middle of the I-E spectrum. I don't know what his other letters are but he seems most like an ENFJ to me.

(I should add, in case anyone's wondering, that I don't think the mysteries of human personality can be captured in tests like this. I do find the typology useful in illuminating how different the world looks to different people, however.)

I am INTJ, therefore, skeptical, critical and stubborn, I'm afraid. But, I have a long attention span and some ability to organize seemingly disparate and diverse information into a (sometimes) coherent larger picture.

Hmm ... introverted, intuitive, critical, opinionated -- sounds like a blogger! Seriously, why don't you have your own blog, dude? You seem like you'd be a natural at it.

I don't have a blog because, although I have opinions on things, I don't have an agenda of any kind. I prefer to respond to what other people have to say concerning topics that interest me. That may change in the future, if and when I might have more free time to devote to a project like that. Your blog has been great fun, and I'm glad that you've put it up.
