Enneagram & Jung Again

Periodic retest of my personality (once again, I got an A+) to see if I seem to be moving in any direction. I should make a graph of this over time or something. Too bad I don\’t have any results recorded prior to last August. Here are my current results:

INTP – \”Architect\”. Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. 3.3% of total population.

Neither of my main types have changed. I\’m still an iNTp and 9w8.

I think the biggest change in the past eight months is that I now have a job. A job I really, really like. So, my introversion decreases (oh so slightly) because I interact with people more regularly; my calmness has increased because I have a bit more financial security; and my anxiety and aggressiveness have increased because, well, I have a job.

The biggest change is the increase in my perfectionism … I don\’t know what\’s driving that. I don\’t feel any more like a perfectionist (whereas I do feel much calmer). Part of that might be because of some of the things that are happening at work. Some of my own preferences and methods that I didn\’t really expect to be able to indulge in, I now can. IE, the world is not quite so insane; reason and logic (read: my opinions) may yet prevail; and I feel more free to push things that I see as \”right\”.

Note: This is all just a bit of self-reflection. Taking personality tests too seriously can be detrimental to your health.

    If you were more of a perfectionist, you’d have correctly punctuated “IE” as “I.e.”. Please subtract a suitable number of points from your score. ;-)

    I thought it was supposed to be “I.E.”, not “I.e.” … in any case, call it typographic liberty ;) I think “I.E.” takes up too much space.

    Just wait, soon I’ll switch from ” to ‘ for quotations.

  3. Jonnay Says:

    I switch willy nilly between ” and ‘. I am a bad person. They will put me in typographical hell.

    I would love to see some kind of graphing of personality tests. It would be interesting to see how you change over time.

    I took this test again, I can’t really recall my results from the first one but the results this time are way scary. I scored 90% for perfectionism, I think I am going to take it a few more times and see if I get the same result. Although the description of my Type, Type 1 seems close to the truth.
