Personally I'm an INTJ. If you don't know what this means this page is very good at explaining it and all of the myers briggs types.

The results can be very helpful for working with others and understanding your own tendancies. Mostly I'm curious to see what types other Gentoo/Linux users tend to be, and perhaps what this may/or may not say about our community. :wink:

GRR.. only so many poll options allowed :evil: (i wanted to do them all, oh well)

Hmmm. I seem to waffle between I and E, but I'm SFJ for the rest of it.

It says I'm INFJ. That sounds pretty accurate...

INTP
EDIT - Is it just me, or is every question repeated like three times in that test?
The best one I've so far encountered is this one. Short and to the point.

I don't remeber which test I took, but the result said:
Quote:
INTP - "Architect". Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. 3.3% of total population.

You're an INTP
INTP

You're on a quest for logical purity...you're motivated to examine universal truths and principles...always asking "Why?" and "Why not?"...can focus with great intensity on your interests...you appreciate elegance and efficiency in thought processes and demand it in your communication...

It's a good thing that geeks and nerds are so often introverts. That way the obnoxious utterance meter stays barely on scale. If they were any more extroverted the world would drown in BS! :roll: And the last thing we need is an army of ESRs!

This thing gets asked so often in various fora around the web that I've long ago put the results up to my personal web page. The place where I've copypasted latest results seem to have been talking about Yung's typology but I figure it's about the same:
