I think the LHC might really be an ESTJ . No offence to him or anyone else .
Hmm, it's not far off but I NEVER mow the lawn!
No signature worth mentioning...
Nor do I. We don't have one.
I'm ESFJ AFAIK BTW.

Well that thinks I'm an INTJ, although I've got to be honest there were a number of questions there that didn't have a YES/NO answer to me.
INTJ here too, but the questions are stupidly transparent and could easily be manipulated to make it show whatever you wanted it to show about yourself if you had to answer them for a prospective employer.
You'd need to be a cretin (or an HR manager) to believe the results of any such test. Manipulating the answers to achieve a specific end result would be simple for a 10 year-old.
For the system to work accurately it is necessary to be 100% honest with yourself and really think about how you feel before answering , some people find this quite difficult and I agree some of the questions are hard to answer with a simple yes or no answer but if you have the time or the inclination to keep trying then the results can be extremely accurate .
Oh and I am an INFP which describes my personality perfectly

Did I? When was that? I didn't know you were a writer at all. I'm afraid I can't remember the episode in question, you wouldn't have a link by any chance? I'd like to see if I was simply critiquing the article in question or whether I was actually trying to ridicule you as you suggest. If it's the latter then I'll apologise, if it's simply a critique I probably won't, if I think it was justified criticism.
I'll try to track down the thread, but it was a while back and I honestly can't recall the topic. Your commentary on my writing lived longer in the memory.

I didn't have an issue with being honest but I found several of the questions were very situation dependant, a third option would have been useful.
Aren't these personality profiles a bit like horoscopes? I mean, the relatively abstract language and vague points of reference mean we can easily regard ourselves as several of these acronyms.
A taxonomy of personality types seems no more effective than any other (invariably flawed) classificatory system. Inevitably there are inaccuracies and overlaps among categories.
Yes I agree a third option would make it far easier with some questions , but I would imagine that the questions were delibrately set that way to provoke a certain response .
Yes, understood, unfortunately a lot of the time the response was "I dunno?"!
There certainly appear to be overlaps between a number of the types and it's unlikely anyone would fit perfectly into any one class but there does at least appear to be some science behind this (or thought, at least), unlike horoscopes which are just cobblers of course.
Yes I suppose there is some similarity to horoscopes
There can be overlaps in personality type because it is not an exact science .
The test is a fairly simple one but there are other more sophisticated tests available that are often used by different organisations to determine someone's suitability for a certain task .
In reference to both above posts, I'm not sure there's any science involved.
The questions are highly subjectively designed and the profiles based on crude measurements using simple "yes" or "no" answers.
I'm not convinced a third option (presumably "unsure," or something similar) would allow for more insightful results.
I was forced into doing a similar test on a training course years back. More recently, I attended another course during a temporary work placement and completed the exact same test. I got different results each time and neither profile said much about my personality that I recognised as accurate. I guess I could have undergone a personality transformation in the intervening years. I might also be deluded about the kind of person I am.
My wife has found the same, she gets a different result almost every time , I think with some personality types the result is quite mood dependant .
For heavens sake, the point here is to be honest with yourself, rather than trying to determine what you think fits in or other people want you to be.......BAA!BAA!, Here sheepy sheep sheep!
