Lyn Cote here--So Who Are You? Take this Test & See!

Lyn Cote here--Today I'm keeping track of who I am and who are you? Authors spend a lot of time watching people, imagining people and then writing about them. Many authors use the
  • Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers typology along with the strengths of the preferences to create characters.
Here's a link to this personality test. Why not take it and then let us know which type you are? No charge and it's just for fun.


You go first and then I'll tell you what my type is.--Lyn

Thank you for sharing, Lyn!

Lyn Cote said...

Well, it's just a test. Probably if you wait a week and take it again, you might slightly different results. It's just for fun!

Barbara Phinney said...

I'm an isfj with moderately everything. Half introverted, half judging.
Very interesting!

Victoria Bylin said...

Hi Lyn, I took this years ago and it came out XNFJ, the X was for half Introvert/half Extrovert. I was a strong N, strong F, strong J. I took it recently and it came out INFJ, more introverted than a few years ago, but everything else was the same.

It's a great tool for building characters!

Lyn Cote said...

Well, since Vicki "exposed" herself, I'm supposedly a ENFJ. Close to Teresa.

Lyn Cote said...

And we'll call Barbara Ms Moderate!

slightly expressed extravert

As Lyn said, I wonder whether I'd have the same results next week. I'll have to try it again. :)

Jenny said...

I am an INTJ...

very expressed introvert (78)
moderately expressed intuitive personality (25)
slightly expressed thinking personality (12)
moderately expressed judging personality (33)

If you go to the Kiersey.com website (under THE FOUR TEMPERAMENTS), it considers INTJ's as Masterminds. ISFJ is considered Protector, INFJ is considered Counselor, ENFJ is considered Teacher (so I guess XNFJ is Counselor/Teacher), and EFSJ is Provider. Do any of those descriptions seems to correctly fit your outcome? Mine does to some extent.

Lyn Cote said...

That sounds like you, Merrillee!

Lyn Cote said...

I'm definitely the teacher!

Hi Lyn:

I don’t know about this test.

It says I’m a INTP. (At least I got very high scores).

It also says I’m a ‘distinctively expressed introvert’. I like nothing better than speaking to groups, especially groups measured in the thousands. I’ve been public speaking for over 30 years.

BTW: My wife and mother-in-law loved your scarf. They want to know if you made it yourself. They said the quality was outstanding. I think everyone should check into Brenda’s Diabetes Auction next year – there are so many bargains, it’s amazing. Thanks for your participation.


Jessica Nelson said...

I've taken it several times (had to make sure, lol) and I'm almost always INFP. :-)

PamelaTracy said...

My type is ESFJ
Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging
67 25 12 33

I am a distinctively expressed extravert

moderately expressed sensing personality

slightly expressed feeling personality

moderately expressed judging personality

I'm not surprised. Almost every test I take put me at extravert but not sympathetic.

Lyn Cote said...

Vince, yes I did knit the scarf. I try to knit something every year for Brenda's auction. Thanks so much for bidding on it. I think that an introvert can speak publicly. I think the distinction between an introvert and an extrovert is that an extrovert thrives on being with other people, is energized by being in a crowd. Conversely, a crowd depletes an introvert. They must leave to go to a quiet place to recharge. Does that make sense?
Anyway it's s fun test.

Lyn Cote said...

Well then Jessica, you've got your answer!

Vince said...

Congrats! Lyn!

I just read that you are a finalist for the Carol award in the Short Historical for your, "Her Healing Ways".

I'm a member of ACFW. Do I get to vote?

BTW: "They must leave to go to a quiet place to recharge." Now that is me 100%!

Lyn online its easier to be outgoing but I am very much a loner here. I dont have a huge friend base and I can happily stay at home. I love going away on trips etc but still can do things on my own.

Lyn Cote said...

Thanks for noticing, Vince. I'm very excited about finaling again this year. I think there must be another round of judging.

Lyn Cote said...

I can understand how it's easier to make friends online. But I'm sure if you gave others nearer a chance, they'd warm to you. You're fun, Jenny!

Ausjenny said...

Thanks Lyn. I dont think I am quite as introverted as they say but I am very much a behind the scenes person. I am not one to be in front of a group. I am happy to go out but ok on my own. When I go away I often dont know anyone and will chat with anyone almost. I think part of the issue is here people have known me since I was little and they tend to put you in a box.

Missy Tippens said...

No time to take the test again, but if I remember correctly, I'm ISFJ. I need to do this again. I know I had changed a bit last time I took it.

Thanks for the link, Lyn!
