Anonymous asked: I have a 'friend' who is an ISTJ. I find he is very domineering, aggressive, uncompromising in his beliefs - even if he is wrong, and really intimidating. My mother is the same, however she is an ESTJ. Are most xSTJ's like this?


Yep. As an ISTJ myself, I think it’s mostly because of the T and J part of us (thinking and judging). We’re very logical and practical rather than abstract. We have emotions, but we’re not good at expressing them, and we especially don’t like to express our emotions to just anyone. We highly value rules and established ways of doing things, and we’re kind of bossy and want everyone to do things our way and hear us out, because we think we’re always right. And we can sometimes be a bit judgmental of people that don’t see things the way way do… So yeah, it’s because of the T and J.

Anonymous asked: What's the difference between infp and infj? I've taken 4 tests and gotten them each twice


It looks like when you take a test you’re a close tie when it comes to the P and J function, perceiving and judging. This is probably the hardest one to identify in people. In general, perceivers are more carefree and fun-loving, whereas judgers are more organized, serious, and controlled. This just means you’re somewhere in between, and that’s okay.

Anonymous asked: "when it comes to your personality type opposites attract" um...i don't think this is right at all? in fact wouldnt being with your opposite type be one of the worst type pairings? because of the function preferences


I’m not a compatibility expert. But you can have all the same interests as a person, but you don’t need to have all the same letters in your personality type. I’ve found that throughout my life, all of my closest friends had the complete opposite personality type as me. And it’s not that we’re totally different, it’s that we complement each other.

Anonymous asked: What's YOUR type? :)


I’m definitely an ISTJ. When I restarted this blog last week after like a 2 year break, I was thinking, maybe my personality type could’ve changed, because since I last took a test, my political views have changed significantly, and I thought maybe that would’ve changed my personality type slightly..nope. Just took a quick test online…still an ISTJ. Haha

Anonymous asked: I don't think personality types are necessarily a 'cookie cutter mold'. The functions determine the motivations behind behaviors, rather than the behaviors themselves; how we think, rather than what we think - therefore, those individual differences you speak of are very much a part of the model.

Anonymous asked: SO I did a MBTI test and I can mostly identify with the profile, but a few things are different. is this due to personal individual differences or have I maybe the wrong type?


In my opinion, everyone is different. There are 16 different Myers-Briggs personality types and there are 7 billion people in the world…everyone is different so not everyone is going to fit into a cookie cutter mold. Even identical twins, who share the same exact DNA develop different personalities. Everyone has individual differences, that’s what makes you you.

About Me

Hi, I’m Hanna. I created this blog in May 2011, and after a very long break I’m back. I’m not a psychologist, or psychiatrist, or psychoanalyst, or any sort of specialist in the psychology or personality trait field. I graduated from college this past May with a degree in business and a minor in counseling. I’ve taken a few psychology classes but I am not an expert by any means. 

When I was a freshman in college I took an Myers-Briggs Personality test online with some friends and thought my results were very interesting, and I really enjoyed learning more about myself through learning about my personality type (ISTJ)…and that’s about as far as I go. I like posting fun little facts about the different types, but I don’t go into analysis or thorough research. Learning different quirks and tendencies of the different personality types is fun to me…and that’s all. 

I used to have co-owners, but like me they got busy and abandoned the blog. There used to  be a ton of Q and A going on on this blog run by the former co-owners that were much more in-depth, analytical, and “nerdy”. Well, I decided to start fresh and delete all that stuff and keep this blog fun, interesting, and on a level that everyone can understand. If you don’t like that, then find a nerdy, more “educated” psych blog to follow. This blog is for fun facts concerning the different personality types and that’s about it. If you don’t like that, then feel free to unfollow. If you do, then I hope you enjoy!

enablersofentropy-deactivated20 asked: Hi! Sorry, I'm a little confused with Steve Wozniac's type. Another source claims him to have a stronger preference for introversion. Why do you consider him an ENTP? Just curious


I’m getting all these from other personality type sites. I’m not a professional, and I personally don’t have time to research everyone and everything. So on my blog, I just put stuff that I find that interests me that I find from other sites.
