I saw this book tag on Thrice Read, and wanted to do it since I’ve always been interested in personality types.
The questions in this tag align with your Meyers-Briggs personality type, which you can find at the links below. I am not tagging anyone specifically, but I am inviting anyone reading this post to join.
All pictures in this post were borrowed from the Sixteen Personalities website.
What is your MBTI personality type?
According to Sixteen Personalities, I am an INTP, the “Logician”. I’ve taken this test a few times before and I either get INTP or INTJ. This time it said I was 45% Judging and 55% percieving, so I guess I’m somewhere in between an INTP and an INTJ. I’m also “turbulent” instead of “Assertive”
“The Logician personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there’s nothing they’d be more unhappy about than being “common”. Logicians pride themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, Logicians have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history.”
What is your personality like?
As an INTP, I can appear dreamy. I’m interested in unconventional and uncommon ideas and can often get lost in thought. I am introverted, though I am comfortable when socializing with close friends.
If you were a character in a book, what would be some of you character strengths and flaws?
Strengths: I would be great at solving problems in a creative and unconventional way. I would be good at cracking codes and mathematical problems.
Flaws: This section of the INTP description pretty accurately describes some of my flaws: “The one thing that really holds Logicians back is their restless and pervasive fear of failure. Logician personalities are so prone to reassessing their own thoughts and theories, worrying that they’ve missed some critical piece of the puzzle, that they can stagnate, lost in an intangible world where their thoughts are never truly applied.”
Do any authors share your personality type?
Jane Austen and John Le Carre share this personality type, and some philosophical authors including Rene Descartes, Immanuel Kant, John Locke, Hannah Arendt, and Thomas Aquinas.
What fictional characters share your personality type?
Aemon Targaryen- Game of Thrones
Lord Varys-Game of Thrones
Others include Nick Carraway (The Great Gatsby), Arthur Weasley (Harry Potter), and Violet Baudelaire (A Series of Unfortunate Events)
If you were a character in a book, what job would you have?
According to 16 personalities, I would be best in an analytical type of career involving math or science. The articles recommends that INTPs work as scientists, data analysts, lawyers, and more.
What personality type would complete your OTP?
Probably an extrovert whose personality is more grounded than mine.
According to 16 Personalities, “Partners who share the Intuitive (N) trait are usually best, along with one or two opposite traits to create variety and balance, but so long as Logicians remember that they are with people who have their own, independent wants and needs, and so long as their partners remember the same of their Logicians, these are long-lasting and satisfying relationships.”
Other websites say that ENTJ or ESTJ’s make great partners for INTPs.
