    If you don't know already, the Myers Briggs Personality Test (MBTI) splits you into 16 different personalities that do a good job describing a lot of things about you.

    So once you take the test you are given 4 letters.
    E/I (extroverted or introverted)
    N/S (intuition or sensing)
    T/F (thinking or feeling)
    P/J (perception or judging)

    Here is a link to a good one: Free MBTI Personality Test and I got the following

    ENTP - "The Debater"
    or "The Visionary"
    Extraverted: 66%
    Intuitive: 61%
    Thinking: 82%
    Perception: 64%


    This is the description for me which explains my business successes and failures pretty well...
    Are there any other ENTP's here? If not what is your MBTI type?

    Oh, I flipped back to INFP. Cool. That means I'm a good lover, plus I have lots of empathy.

    Pretty much always been INFP. However, for about 18 months or so there the test said I was INTJ. Thinking back, I'm assuming due to various frustrations & issues in life at that moment, so my thinking & judging side came out stronger. Now life is comfortable again, so apparently I'm back to my old INFP self. :)

    MBTI is currently the best, and most respected test out there for a quick indication of someone's personality, and has stood the test of time over decades.

    By no means is it definitive though, and should only ever be used as a quick & easy indicator. If you need something more definitive, then you're looking at talking with a qualified shrink for dozens of hours over a span of months to get a true psychiatric evaluation.

    Loads of the top companies in the world use the MBTI test though. I know for sure ExxonMobil does, and am pretty sure folks like Google, Apple, IBM, and so on do as well. Again, they only use the results as a simple indicator, and by no means use them as anything definitive. That, and ExxonMobil employees for example get the full test, not just 40 questions or whatever on the internet. The test they get is quite a bit more extensive than the ones we see on the internet, but it is used to help ensure employees are placed in roles they are best suited for.

    I was reading an article recently that talked about research showing that the most effective executives were people who scored high in empathy and who scored low in neuroticism. Those both show up to some degree in the Big Five, although I don't like the Big Five as a casual test because it's scores tend to be very judgmental, as it is pointing out personality faults instead of personality differences.

    I get ENTP. It's fun, a nice step up from horoscopes. However, I still think the Big 5/Global 5 is the psychology industry? standard for personality tests/inventories. http://similarminds.com/global5/g5-jung.html maps your MBTI results to something similar to a global 5 though.
