I thought it'd be interested to get a discussion of MBTI personality types going. Particularly, I'm interested in learning if writers are predominately certain personality types rather than others, and why (I suspect they are). For those of you not familiar with the Myers-Briggs Personality types, it's basically a psychological test based on the theory that everyone falls into one of sixteen personality types (though there are sub-types according to additional theories). Read more about Myers-Briggs on Wikipedia. It's really quite fascinating. It's a little eerie to think that people in the world have minds and personalities structured almost just like yours, but I'm convinced the theory is near correct. For example, I'm an INTP. I was skeptical, but when I read the wiki page on my personality type, it took me aback - it described exactly how I think, interpret information, and view and interact with the world. The actual test costs money since it's a real psychological test (I did one at university) but there are tests online that will probably give you a decent idea of your personality type. I can't say this is a good one, but it was accurate for me (no online test is as accurate as the real MBTI test). So anyway, what are your thoughts on the MBTI test and theory? How can we use our knowledge of our personality type to better understand ourselves and improve our lives? Are writers more likely to be a certain type, and, if so, why? I've included a poll.
