    I have done the Myers-Briggs personality test twice: the first time (3 years ago) I was INTJ. I did it again last year and I got INFJ. Apparently these are the two of the rarest types for men which might help explain the lifetime of bullying, particularly as a child.

    yea.... :(

    It's not strange to me that they would be the rarest for men either. I'd say I have a female brain or personality, easily. I'm sure to an extent, certain traits go with ceartain brain or personality "types", but a lot of that is just cultural and what we define as male or female.

    The Spontaneous Idealist

    hmmm, I also couldn't choose between left and right, in fact I even wonder if I have a fixed personality... lol
    I am a lot of things at the same time. This used to bother me, but since I discovered astrology I became to understand 'why', or at least I have peace with it now. It's just what it is.

    Yes, it said that I was a Reliable Realist, whatever that truly indicates. These "tests" leave more confused than ever. The various tests show me as INFJ, ENTJ, and ENFJ, none of the percentages are very high - I'm either very "rounded" or without much "personality", I don't know which:).

    Let's just go with "very rounded". :)

    P.S. One of my favorite descriptions of the Analytical Thinker was: "You are not particularly suited for dealing with others . . . ." :p

    I remember I took the test a couple of times in my life. When I was a teen I was INFP, now I am INTJ -very rare for a woman. I guess my personality followed the evolution of my character, we don't always think the same way at different points in our life.

    AlexD, that's so true! When I was in my thirties, I thought I had it all figured out and would think that way the rest of my life. Not quite, and I was surprised when my views really started shifting, too.
