    Hi guys,

    A lot of what we do is about improving yourself. Doing a personality test can help you find your weaknesses and strengths to work on.
    Do this test and reply back with the result:

    I am an ENTP, really interested to hear what your types are!

    I reckon the best type to succeed in this business or entrepreneurship as a whole is ESTP

    Your test result from these self tests will be dependent on your current mood. Also people are sure to gas themselves up and not be honest when taking it. They're cool, but most people get a result that isn't true.

    I have gotten INTJ, ENTJ and ISTJ.

    That's an interesting result, I have done the test a couple of times through the years and always got ENTP. You could let someone who knows you best fill in the test for you to avoid bias

    Read this article, it will probably feel like a friend is describing you:
    https://www.16personalities.com/intp-personality

    I find it so interesting that we all think we're special, but our personalities can be divided up in 16 types.

    For marketing or business overall on the internet, I think being Introverted is actually a plus. What do you guys think?

    ENFP - no idea why I should label myself by some words and I don't see how that affects my work whatsoever.

    Labeling yourself often make you restrain yourself and often end up following the label. For example if you say you are a time optimist, you will always be running late and blame it on the fact that you are a time optimist. It is better to just accept that you are running late, and try to better yourself until the next time rather than blaming it on you being a time optimist - it won't help you proceed in life.

    That's my point of view. :)

    The Thinker in my INTP personality woke up and asked the P(Perceive) as BS

    I guess the article was right INTPs live primarily in their own heads, and have little interest in social distractions like chitchat and motivational speeches.

    Interesting point, I think you shouldn't see it as labeling yourself; it's more an indicator of your personality to become aware of the weaknesses or shortcomings you could have. I got "ENTP" for example, it says that I have a lot of good ideas that I fail to execute or work out. This couldn't be more true and it made me aware of this shortcoming I have. Awareness is the first step to improvement. It's great to be able to read how other ENTPs solved this very problem I am struggling with.
    If I can somehow find a way to focus on one idea and tunnel my energy for a longer time instead of hopping from idea to idea, I could get to my goals much easier.

    Most of the time we think that the things we struggle with are special, that somehow we are the only ones with certain problems/weaknesses. Good thing to know that there are millions of people out there that are battling the very same thing, right?

    I've taken these many times. I always get INTJ. Watch, I'll take the one you linked to and still get INTJ.

    Edit: INTJ. Every. Single. Time.

    Tip btw: Let your friends and acquaintances do the test too. They'll think it's just for fun and do it, but knowing what type the people around you are can give you a great advantage when interacting with them.

    I actually tried that out before. I sent it to several relatives and they all got different variations of E_F_. However, 1 of them would alternate between E and I.

    Anyway, I normally just mentally assign people a very specific group label based on their behaviour and interact with them based on what they would expect.

    I have hundreds of different labels and you'd be amazed at how many people can fit into one of these specific labels.

    That's a nice skill to have, I agree. The test should be more of an introduction to "labeling" people. Most times I can find out the Myers-Briggs personality type of anyone now after hanging out for a while.

    I agree, the binary nature of the test is not optimal, that's why you should also look at the percentages you get for each category. I had 93% towards Extrovert for example, but 56% for N. So I might be S or N, but I can be sure the E result is correct.

    The test shouldn't be used to predict success in various jobs anyway ;)

    But there is no point to it, a person can have their percentages change over time, its just as valid as checking bumps on someone's head to see if they will become a criminal.
