No, it's not a new branch of the 'T', it's the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. We give it to the young-uns that I work with. I have a theory of where LE tends to fall, and would like you to be my subjects... (evil laugh). If you want to take it, it's four quick questions at this link:
http://www.personalitytype.com/quiz.asp
Make sure that you think your answers over. It's pretty accurate, but if you feel it is off, you were probably on the fence about one of your choices. If you really want to get jiggy with it, type your code into google after you get it, and you'll get more insight into that type than you can shake a nightstick at...

:stupid: I'm an INFP... Rarely found in LE (according to their studies), but I've never been one to follow the crowd.

I'm an INTJ...but I have to say that test is sort of biased as it presents the options v. presenting questions that lead to the types.

I'm just saying.

Pretty cool Mr. Kramer...

We have a lot of people say the same thing:
Corrections officer (Interesting...)


I misquoted my original post about being an INFP, I'm actually an INTP:




Life as an INTP

(Introvert, Intuitive, Thinker, Perceiver)

People of this type tend to be: quiet, independent, and private; logical and unemotional; creative, ingenious, and innovative, global thinkers; curious and driven to increase their competence; casual, and adaptive; nonconforming and unpredictable.

The most important thing to INTPs is their privacy and the opportunity to solve complex problems in unique ways.

The stuff in red is totally me...

I agree SOT. The real MBTI is a series of forced choice questions that leave the subject blind to any possible outcomes. This is just to play around, but you can get pretty close to your type.

I have taken this test a few times and consistently come up an ISTJ. Took it in the Academy also. The instructor, who has a psychology background and is a well respected administrative officer in a very large department, mentioned the ISTJ personality type makes the best "street cop" or traffic officer because they are less likely to be persuaded by other influences (ie: the sob stories :musicboo: ).
