Writer's Block: Taking It Personally
Have you ever taken a personality test like the Myers-Briggs or Enneagram? If so, did you agree with the results? And what was your type?
INTP - I am a MBTI skeptic.

karlthepagan! Excuse the randomness, I found you through the response to writer's block prompt. I read the post you linked to. (I was going to post my response there, but I'm not a member of that community.)

The MBTI test is shitty, I agree 100%. I was tested 3 times and came out as a handful of types. The melvin of two years ago would have agreed with you that the MBTI is horseshit!

So at one point I sat down, read the dichotomies, and figured out my type. I think a much better way to type people is to give them examples and explanations of what the dichotomies mean. (Here's an article that does that! http://www.enotalone.com/article/3783.html )

But you've already tested as INTP, and you write like an INTP. I know, that sounds crazy, but I spend a lot of time at INTPforum.com, and I've gotten a feel for what makes an INTP.

The INTPforum is actually my reason for posting this- I'm trying to recruit you for it. I just want to be upfront with my biases. :D

Here's the best INTP profile I've found. I hope it will persuade you! http://www.intp.org/intprofile.html
If you start chuckling while reading, then welcome to the club. :D
