    Just looked at the colourquiz sam beckett posted a link to (http://www.lpsg.org/showthread.php?t=24693) and thought I'd link another similar type of think I did in the past that seemed pretty good: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes1.htm

    If you follow the second link on the results page you get an analysis and a list of historical figures and famous fictional characters judged to have the same personality type as you.

    I was an INTJ (Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging), which is the same as these fictional characters:

    Cassius (Julius Caesar)
    Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
    Gandalf the Grey (J. R. R. Tolkein's Middle Earth books)
    Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs)
    Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' nemesis
    Ensign Ro (Star Trek--the Next Generation)
    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (Hamlet)
    George Smiley, John le Carre's master spy
    Clarice Starling (Silence of the Lambs)

    ...Hannibal Lecter?!? :eek:

    Very weird. I usually end up as an ENTJ, and this test had me as an INFP. (The 'I' doesn't surprise me; being under the weather probably influenced my answers. The 'FP' was a real surprise.)

    Hi,

    I have up until this year consistantly scored a definite INTJ but this time as last time I am right over the edge and into INTP land . The proliferation of INTJ's explains a lot about the dynamic of this board.

    I took this test before, and while I don't exactly remember what my 4 letters were, it was indeed a 4 letter word.

    Interesting bit of trivia that you, ahh, may or may not have known. It turns out that all 4 letter words started out as 16 letter words. But due to some mathematical forces of the universe, the square root of those words actually came to be the 4 letters that we actually use.

    Oh, and by the way, the test said i was "Cliff Clavin" from Cheers

    -There is no official regulation banning postmen from dating, it just works out that way, Cliffy Clavin-

    It's all pretty true--I am a performer and I'm all about being the center of attention!

    Your Type is
    [SIZE=+2]ESFP[/SIZE]
    Qualitative analysis of your type formula
    You are:
    • very expressed extrovert
    • slightly expressed sensing personality
    • slightly expressed feeling personality
    • slightly expressed perceiving personality
    Besides being concrete in speech and utilitarian in reaching their goals, the Performer Artisans are informative and expressive in their social interactions. Thus, while Performers are usually extreme in their expressiveness and sociability, observably the most expressive of all the types, they are not comfortable telling others what to do, preferring to offer information rather than to issue orders.
    Demonstrating or performing is putting on a show to entertain others, and Performers, whether on the job, with friends, or in their families, are the natural performers among the types, people for whom it can truly be said "all the world's a stage." Playful and fun-loving, the Performer' primary social interest lies in stimulating those around them, arousing their senses and their pleasureful emotions-charming them, in a sense, to cast off their concerns and "lighten up." Representing about ten per cent of the general population, Performers radiate warmth and optimism, and are able to lift others' spirits with their contagious laughter and their irrepressible joy of living. It is well that Performers are plentiful, something over ten per cent of the population, because they bring joy to so many of us. They love the excitement of playing to an audience, and they try to generate a sense of "showtime" wherever they are. Performers are not comfortable being alone most of the time, and seek the company of others whenever possible -- which they usually find, for they make wonderful playmates. Lively, witty conversationalists, Performers always seem to know the latest jokes and stories, and are quick with wisecracks and wordplay -- nothing is so serious or sacred that it can't be made fun of. Performers also like to live in the fast lane of society, and seem up on latest fads of dress, food, drink, and entertainment, the chic new fashion, the "in" nightclub, the "hot" new musical group. Energetic and uninhibited, Performers create a mood of "eat, drink, and be merry" wherever they go, and life around them can have a continual party-like atmosphere.


    "Where's the party?" ESFPs love people, excitement, telling stories and having fun. The spontaneous, impulsive nature of this type is almost always entertaining. And ESFPs love to entertain -- on stage, at work, and/or at home. Social gatherings are an energy boost to these "people" people.
    SPs sometimes think and talk in more of a spider-web approach. Several of my ESFP friends jump from thought to thought in mid-sentence, touching here or there in a manner that's almost incoherent to the listener, but will eventually cover the waterfront by skipping on impulse from one piece of information to another. It's really quite fascinating.
    New! ESFPs are attracted to new ideas, new fashions, new gadgets, new ______. Perhaps it's the newness of life that attracts ESFPs to elementary education, especially to preschool and kindergarten.
    ESFPs love to talk to people about people. Some of the most colorful storytellers are ESFPs. Their down-to-earth, often homespun wit reflects a mischievous benevolence.
    Almost every ESFP loves to talk. Some can be identified by the twenty minute conversation required to ask or answer a simple factual question.
    Functional Analysis:
    Extraverted Sensing

    The dominant function of ESFPs is concerned with the reality that is perceived through the senses. This type's prime directive is to examine the tangible through taste, touch, sight, feeling and hearing. ESFPs' need for new experiences surely results from this function. Feeling gives focus to the collected information, producing the amiable nature of this type. As perceivers, ESFPs do not linger on moral concerns unless it is in service of a Greater Good and/or a unifying cause.
    Introverted Feeling

    Feeling, which tends to decision-making in the interest of individual beings, is auxiliary to sensing. As with all introverted functions, feeling for ESFPs has a surreal, cryptic, quintessential nature. It is more often implied than verbally expressed, more apparent in countenance and deed rather than word or creed. Feeling takes care that playful pokes and pranks do no harm to the victim.
    Extraverted Thinking

    This tertiary function is at the ready to give definitive answers when the world requires them. It provides a measure of balance to Introverted Feeling, allowing the ESFP some level of boundary and protection from those who would take advantage. When overused or overestimated, however, Thinking becomes a liability. ESFPs do well to seek out confirmation of the soundness of tough-minded decisions.
    Introverted iNtuition

    This function is least visible. As is the nature of the inferior (fourth) function, ESFP intuition lacks a sense of balance. This type seems most successful in deducing patterns and seeing connections only after a thorough examination of the facts (which process appears quite unorganized and haphazard to non-SPs). Although some ESFPs may develop such abilities, the mastery of logic, analysis and abstraction is usually difficult and wearying, and not very much fun.
    Famous ESFPs:

    Saint Mark (Christ's disciple)
    Dale Evans
    Gracie Allen
    Bob Hope
    Eva Gabor
    Willard Scott
    Goldie Hawn
    Kyle Petty
    Arsenio Hall
    Mary Lou Retton
    Kathy Lee Gifford
    Marne Stanier, "The Weather Channel"
    Woody Harrelson (Cheers)

    Fictional ESFPs:

    Tim "The Toolman" Taylor(Home Improvement)
    Cody (Step By Step)
    Mrs. Pumphrey (James Herriot, All Creatures Great and Small)

    I usually end up an INFJ in those tests, but my thinking/feeling dimension is pretty much half-and-half (even when I end up as an INFJ, I can see that the F dimension is the weakest when the test actually provides a measure of the strength for each dimension).
    I've always been an IN (something) J however, and I've taken the Myers-Briggs test several times.
