Briggs-Meyers Personality Test Results

Stephen F. Dennstedt

INTJ-A = part of the 2%. I knew that of course because I’ve taken the famous Briggs-Meyers personality test more than once and it ALWAYS comes out the same. INTJ-A. It’s flattering (in some ways) to have a rare personality type but I sometimes question whether it might not be a BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder).

If you’ve ever wondered what makes good old Steve tick the test results will answer all of your unasked questions. Amongst them why I succeed in professional and creative pursuits and crash & burn in relationships. Why I’m a pie-in-the-sky idealist and at the very same time the consummate pragmatist.

My personality type has plagued me my entire life and has brought a certain amount of misery into my life. It’s easy for me to slip into arrogance (thinking everyone else is stupid) and quick judgements. I rarely trust anyone else when it comes to decisions and I am supremely confident in my own decision making prowess (I’m basically a pain in the ass). Ugh! Come to find out I worked 30 years at a job I was ill-suited to (and hated). But the money was good and I “thought” I could make a difference.

  1. Fellow INTJ, here. Not sure about the -A though – don’t remember. I always get INTJ, too. I think I am rarer than you, since I am a woman. I only discovered about the MBTI about 5 years ago, and it was seriously life changing. I had always grown up thinking I was shy and awkward and weird (in a bad way), learning all this has been profoundly influential and positive and explains me so well. I cannot explain everything in a short comment, but let me say that I am so proud and relieved and confident to discover that my personality is normal, though rare. I can relate to being arrogant and judgemental (though I tend not to voice this), don’t trust people to make decisions, and am “supremely confident in my own decision making prowess.” I’ll add intelligence to this. Also hate small talk, and I will cross the street to avoid talking to someone.
