I am not much one for psychology, but I suppose it does have its uses now and then. That being said, on a whim I took a Jung Typology test on the Internet the other day. Turns out I am a ...


Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging

Strength of the preferences %

78 38 75 33

According to the test I am:

  • very expressed introvert
  • moderately expressed intuitive personality
  • distinctively expressed thinking personality
  • moderately expressed judging personality

I vaguely understand what this means, but what I find more interesting are other people rated as INTJ. It seems I am in the company of such individuals as:

  • Dan Aykroyd
  • William F. Buckley, Jr.
  • Chevy Chase
  • Peter Jennings
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • General Colin Powell
  • John F. Kennedy

As for INTJ fictional characters, there are:

  • Cassius (Julius Caesar)
  • Gandalf the Grey (J. R. R. Tolkein's Middle Earth books)
  • Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs)
  • Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' nemesis

Quite an interesting group of people.
