    28 Question Test (inTJ)

    EDIT: this shows the weakness of such tests when connected to type theory, by the way -- for instance, for the first test, the only "clear" result is of EXTX, with N/S and J/P being too close to be significant, let alone to "decide" that I am ESTJ rather than, say, ENTP.

    For the second test, the only "clear" result is XXTX, or at most XXTJ, so, ok, combining the two tests almost gives the correct answer, ENTJ.

    But, still, I have to say that, if you are going to rely on tests, it's better to use a type-free scale such as Big Five or even MBTI, but always showing the actual results rather than just the type.

    Interesting. I get the result iNTp in the 6 questions test if I choose these alternatives:

    Group MBTI Test Questions

    1.
    Alternative Possibilties
    Present Solutions
    Sensible Freedom
    Abstract Solutions

    2.
    Abstract Logic
    Sensible Logic
    Detailed Feelings
    Harmonious Possibilities

    3.
    Internal Feelings
    Logical Explanations
    Emotional Explanations
    Internal Reasoning

    4.
    Logical Alternatives
    Logical Decisions
    Harmonious and Free
    Harmonious Decisions

    5.
    Internal Sensations
    External Environment
    Internal Abstractions
    Outward Generalizations

    6.
    Outward Perception
    Acting on Decisons
    Internal Judgements
    Personal Alternatives

    If I answer the same but changes to "Alternative Possibilities" in the first group, I become an iNTP instead, but "Abstract Solutions" is probably more correct in my case.

    The most difficult questions for me were the last two groups. If I change to "Outward Generalizations" in group 5, which exact meaning in this context I am unsure of, but it could make some sense since I like to generalize from empirical observations, I become an eNTp. And if I choose "Internal Judgements" (whatever that means here) in the last group, I become an iNTj or an eNTj depending on if I chose "Internal Abstractions" or "Outward Generalizations" in group 5.


    In the 28 questions test I got this result:

    YOUR SIMPLE MBTI/JUNG PERSONALITY TYPE SHOULD BE...

    INTP

    YOUR REAL MBTI/JUNG PERSONALITY TYPE IS MOST LIKELY...

    Interesting, you anwered those 6 questions exactly the same way I did. This reminds me that we very often score identically in those pop tests. Not sure what the implications are though, if any.

    You're right and I noticed exactly the same thing, but er, I cannot be a J type by the definition of J type itself, unless we almost completely invert the two classifications.

    Well, I'm not that "J" either according to MBTI test criteria when compared with XSXJs, for instance. I think that this points towards what Phaedrus mentioned in the other thread -- part of what MBTI regards as "Perceiving" is actualy socionics extraversion, at least in such tests, and they don't differentiate well between EJ and EP. This is what's happening, I think.

    Your real MBTI type may contain lower-case letters and "x" characters.
    These show up when your answer the questions
    in a way that demonstrates less tendency towards any individual preference.

    I guess it works for some of us. What I like about it is that it is not so straightforward in which u can guess what each option stands for, especially for those less familiar with mbti theory.

    The 6 question test is interesting, but the second I'm skeptical about. The words were not contrasted with their opposites for the same dimension, which is not the correct way of proceeding and leads to weird test results.

    Here, I get points of preference for a category because I have to choose between the lesser of two evils, instead of choosing what I really prefer. While I can choose between an I and E question (one being something I like, the other not), I can't choose between two equal preferences. There are 4 dimensions with polar opposites and preferences exist between one and the other end of the dimension - not between dimensions.

    The problem is that the test was made by an amateur who doesn't know how to construct a proper test.

    TYPEME.NET - What the hell???

    Okay, listen up... this is how it works....
    Hopefully it clears up some confusion...
    Oh yeah, hello.... And thanks for taking it..

    There are basically 3 tests going on here....

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    TEST 1
    Compare using all possible two letter combos.... (6 Questions)

    ET IT EF IF.... Make them choose one of them...
    NT ST SF NF... Make them choose one....
    There ends up being 6 different questions total in order to account for ALL COMBOS....

    At the end....
    You will end up with something like

    ET ... NJ ... TN ... EJ .. EN ... TP (each being one of the answers)
    So, when you group em together, you end up with...
    ENTJ ENTJ ENTP

    Which ends up giving something like ENTj ...

    ~~~~

    TEST 2

    On the 28 question test, it is kinda two tests in one....

    The first part.... (first 24 questions) makes you decide if you are...
    Strong T or Stronger N....Makes you choose your absolute strongest preference...

    Notice the point scores on the 28 question test...

    ENTJ (Random person's results)
    E: 4 | I: 2 = 6 total
    S: 3 | N: 5 = 8 total
    T: 3 | F: 1 = 4 total
    J: 4 | P: 2 = 6 total

    This shows a unique distribution where, you prefer N/S..
    You might look at the big picture before you check the logic.

    TEST 3....Second part of the 28 question test (last 4 questions)... gives you your SIMPLE type...
    Which is the exact same thing as the FOUR QUESTION test you can find anywhere else on the net.... (Just kinda a baseline)

    If you don't like it, don't use it...
    If you find use for it, please enjoy..
    Good luck,

    Kyle

    PS: The test is DESIGNED so that all combos are there, all the options have a fair chance of getting picked.... I don't know what to tell you if you say it's innacurate...

    Other than, it could be the wording of some of the options....
    So..... In that case...

    If you have any suggestions for slight wording changes, that you think might make it more 'foolproof' for those having difficulties, please let me know...

    Hi,

    I think there is a problem in the construction of your test. I agree that it can measure the absolute strongest preference out of the 8 preferences. However, it cannot discriminate overall type. The reason for this being that word choices have to be made between words at the polar opposites of a same dimension to measure preference in a dimension. The strength of the single of a person's preferences being sufficient to influence results otherwise. Points get artificially attributed to a preference when this one does not exist. For example:

    Emotions or Past Experiences

    Earns a strong N a point in F, when this preference may not exist, simply because that person has a strong dislike of S.

    As a second example, I will post some recent test results with my test answers:

    eNTJ
    E: 4 | I: 3
    S: 1 | N: 4
    T: 4 | F: 1
    J: 5 | P: 2

    I have earned points in I artificially. It looks as though my preference for E over I is slight, when it is stronger than reflected by your test. The reason for this are the following items, where I chose the options in bold:

    Concentration or Details
    Concentration or Emotions

    I was not going to choose details or emotions. But if I was faced with:

    Concentration or Loud or Concentration or Act before you think

    I would have had a point attributed to my correct preference.

    What you need to do is change the pairings to oppose words only on the opposite of a particular dimension if you want to measure overall type. If you are not interested in measuring overall type, you should then only report the strongest preference in your test results. The method you have put forward would seem better suited to measure strength of function preference. However, you would have to adapt all the items.

    Why is it always ESTJ vs. INFP?

    It's not, it's just either E or I....S or N....T or F...J or P...

    When you read vertically it's ESTJ/INFP
    I still agree with aurora, it's just E or I, S or N, T or F, J or P.

    so this only tests for ESTJ vs INFP? that seems kinda silly, why not test for all 16 types? :wink:

    /doh that woulda been better if I'd got it in before Balzac

    That is what the simple test (4 questions at the bottom) is for.... Direct comparison of exact opposites.

    The other is an attempt to pin you based on what you actually seem to prefer.... It is possible, making deeper leveled connections, to arrive at the conclusion....

    For example... Do I prefer....
    BBQ Pork or Fried Rice....? Fried Rice
    Fried Shrimp or BBQ Pork? BBQ Pork

    It is obvious that I prefer Fried Rice over Fried Shrimp without directly asking me... As long as you give everything an equal chance of being picked, (using every combination)....

    As long as the test takers logic adds up...
    It should be undeniably accurate...

    However, one problem that I am realizing... Since I'm not using the same word for Intuitive every time.... or any of the other letters...

    Random Ideas vs Objective
    Abstract Thoughts vs Emotional

    If "Abstract Thoughts", in general, is more appealing than "Random Ideas"... More people will probably end up testing T, because they would give "Random Ideas" less credit (it doesnt sound as cool)...

    The solution is to use the same wording for each letter....
    Asking the exact opposite pairs is the exact same thing every other test does out there.... I am trying to prove the same thing from a different angle.

    But then, if I were to use the same word every time, wouldn't I just be saying.... Thinking vs Sensing, Feeling vs Judging, etc, etc etc.... ?

    Do you guys have any ideas for 'globally accepted' one-word synonyms for the 8 preference names?


    PS: No, it tests for all 16 types...

    .
    I'm sorry (I don't want to gang up on you) but it has been empirically proved that preferences for human beings are not actually transitive as predicted by basic economics/psych theory. I can find you the paper if you don't trust my word, but I am entirely sure of this finding.

    lot's of peoples logic doesn't add up, I know mine rarely does. Your test therefor is only valid for T's and androids. (if they aren't the same thing that is, which I'm not quite convinced of)

    (I am aware of the faulty logic in my statement, so back off androids!)

    4 questions are not enough to assess this because each of the dimensions has several subtraits and they must all be measured.

    As long as the test takers logic adds up...

    No, it is inaccurate and the logic is incorrect for the reasons I have stated.

    The solution is to use the same wording for each letter....
    Asking the exact opposite pairs is the exact same thing every other test does out there.... I am trying to prove the same thing from a different angle.
    That is not a solution because there are many subtraits to each preference and you are measuring only one.

    PS: No, it tests for all 16 types...
    It does not and you are mistaken. I have tried explaining its problems to you. However, I have no particular interest in making your test correct, and so am not particularly motivated in making you change your mind. Debating this issue any further would be unfruitful and a waste of time.

    You are too wonderful to discuss personality type on a personality type message board...?
    A perfectly good opportunity to have an enlightening ENTJ conversation?

    You are an idiot for 'denying' me and my intelligence...
    I could run circles around you with my feet tied together...
    You respond with one extremely 'general' statement,
    that does not really solve anything... It just rejects what is new.

    However, if you don't have any worthwhile suggestions, then I don't really care either.. Priorities...
    I just happened to see one of my websites getting a shitload of traffic, decided to investigate, and you all looked pathetically lost...

    Interesting you say that...

    Depending on the time of day I take my 28 question test...
    I usually come up as ENTj but, sometimes eNTJ...

    I think it comes down to when I must choose...
    Concentration vs Open-Minded

    Kyle's posts seem rather Ne to me.

    Kyle, the important thing to understand is that MBTI is very different from Socionics. Please don't take our criticisms too personally. We're measuring your test against a totally different system than it was intended for. If you're interested in Socionics, the best place to start, imo, is with Information Elements and Model A.
