    Just interested to see what Myers Briggs types people here are...

    I was going to do a poll, but I'd rather see what people actually are, as there are a few people who I suspect are certain types...

    Magdoran - xNTP
    wayneL - INTP
    Realist - xxFJ
    tech/a - xNTJ

    I suspect most traders will be xNTx, private traders INTx.

    More info on Myers Briggs typing here.

    And the test is here.

    I'm an INTJ, although sometimes test as INTP.

    Yes good work. Having read the material, I thought I would have come out as a T, but tested as an F.

    Where did you come across this swingstar? Previous job?

    Actually, what percentage was F? If it was low, you may also swing to T. There are other tests online as well, and professional tests, if you want to try a few.

    I usually find them pretty accurate... I've been able to type my friends and family pretty well.

    I've done this test 3 times over the past 10 years or so, always the same outcome: INTP.

    INFJ for me, totally spot on, scarily so! And guess what, it also predicted my career too!

    Which is why we use this in our business too - Psychology of course! :D
