What is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator? It's basically a nerd horoscope that condenses different aspects of personality into four dichotomies. You take a test and it spits out a four letters that are supposed to sum up your personality. It was invented by a mother daughter team of psychology enthusiasts based on Carl Jung's theories.

Here's the official website that explains each letter in detail.

and here's a summary of each of the 16 types.

You can take the test on the website for a fee or you can just use this unlicensed knockoff that shows up as the second result in google.


If you don't like to click things here's a chart summing up each type.



If you do like clicking things, check this out. http://cfcl.com/vlb/Projects/D3/MBTI/


A quick disclaimer: like a real horoscope, the MBTI can be fun and flattering, but you probably shouldn't use it as a basis for important life, career, or romantic decisions. It's not really based on any extensive evidence or research, but that doesn't stop companies and government organizations from using it anyway.

Now onto the tedious, boring charts.

Here's one with a bunch of historical figures you can measure your personal failings against. You can find even more at this website.




This one lists composers and their types.




There's a ton for fictional characters but this one is noteworthy for including four characters in each type. Who has time for that? More fictional characters here http://mentalfloss.com/us/go/65218




Sports!




Find your fursona with this animal chart!



and here's another one with several of the same animals shuffled around.





This article details the unique reasons why nobody likes you.


Anyway, feel free to vote in the poll (sorry, chaotic neutral isn't an option) post articles and charts or tell everyone more about yourself and your type.

I'm a type two, myself. Came out of the pool a few months back. Can't remember the last name I had - spending a few years in the cannery'll do that to you I suppose. They gave me a new one but it don't matter much to you flakes I expect.

Anyway my spirit animal is goku

Big surprise - a lot of goons are introverts - who would have guessed?

I guess I should temper that with saying I'm an ENTP

ENFP, putting me among Dr. Seuss, Professor X and orangutans. I can live with that.

Another site lists Hunter S. Thompson, George Carlin and Ralph Nader. Also cool.

I always test as INFJ, but the only example I identify with on those charts is the panda.

Your mortal enemy is always the exact same type as you, just with some key differing wrong opinions.

I'm not sure I get it, but I laughed anyway.

It's less that she's the most significant INTJ person and more that she's the most INTJ person to ever be considered significant.



Anyway, I can't say I'm surprised that INTJ is the most popular type among goons, but I didn't expect such a strong preference for introversion (117 votes and no one has picked ESTP yet). On the upside, there are more feelsgoons out there than I thought, so there's at least a little diversity among the introverts. Also I don't know if the results would look different if I had posted this in another sub-forum, but PYF seemed like a better environment than neo-gbs for a semi-controlled pseudoscientific survey like this.

Here's the goon population so far.



http://forums.somethingawful.com/poll.php?action=showresults&pollid=33513

As you can see there's a strong preference for introversion (80%) while the general population is just over 50%. What's more unusual is that the N/S preference is inverted, with 74% of goons preferring intuition over sensing, as opposed to the 27% preference among normal people. Then again, there may may be a significant number of sensing goons not reporting, since sensing people tend not to care about this kind of poo poo.

Add me to the list of INTJs. This is like the 6th time I've done one of these that I got that result (out of 8).


Also everyone with an 'F' is fundamentally bad and broken and should be fixed or sterilized/killed. That's not my opinion, it's just the truth. Sorry, 60% of the human population.
