I've recently been collecting scores from writers who take the free Jung Typology Test online, and so far all of us are introverts. I wrote a guest post about this on Jane Kennedy Sutton's blog during my book tour last month, and I've just reprinted the article on my own blog.
The test derives from the Myers Briggs Personality Test. It involves answering 60 yes/no questions, takes only a few minutes, and has some genuine validity. You'll learn which of 16 personality types you are. For example, I'm an INFP, an "idealist healer." The initials stand for introvert, intuitive, feeling and perceiving. My type "can seem shy, even distant around others. . . they can work quite happily alone. . . demonstrate, like the other Idealists, a remarkable facility with language. They have a gift for interpreting stories, as well as for creating them, and thus often write in lyric, poetic fashion."
Here's the link to the test: www.humanmetrics.com.
I love the description of my type, but so far, I haven't found any other INFPs among my respondents. Please take the test and post your results either here or on my own blog at the link below. I look forward to hearing from you!
