My grandson persuaded me to take this personality type quiz because his own results matched so perfectly with his personality that he had his family rolling on the floor when he read it out loud.  My own results (INFJ-T) were less spectacular: right on in places, but far enough off in others to make me wonder if it's really much better than a horoscope.  But some of the questions were hard to answer, so I think I'll play with it and see if I can do better.

Speaking of better, my grandson then suggested I try Brandon Sanderson's Knights Radiant Order Quiz.  My results from this one were much more impressive.

I am a Truthwatcher

If you click on this link and scroll down a bit, you'll see the characteristics of a Truthwatcher, which as far as I'm concerned are pretty accurate.  For example,

These make their opinions known loudly and forcefully, particularly if they think someone in power is abusing that power or lying about fundamental truths. ... They generally prefer to write their opinions rather than speak them.

Truthwatcher was my grandson's second guess as to what my results would be.  His first was Edgedancer.

Truthwatcher and Edgedancer were the top two in my results, and pretty close at that. Considering that I also see myself as more of a mixture of Truthwatcher and Edgedancer, I think his Perspicacity rating is pretty good.

Now I just have to read the books.

Having taken the 16personalities test again, as I suspected I got a different answer. It differed mostly in degree (sometimes quite a bit) rather than kind, but did flipped the personality type from INFJ-T (Advocate, rarest personality type) to INFP-T (Mediator, also very rare). As before, some traits right on and others not so much.

Only 97% Introverted instead of 100% this time. :)

I'll probably try it yet again later. I have not yet tried deliberately tweaking answers to see what changes result; I answered as honestly as I could both time.

In case you're interested: 71% Truthwatcher, 70% Skybreaker, 69% Edgedancer, 63% Windrunner, 62% Elsecaller. I'm of whichever order which is bothered by percentages not adding up to 100.

I can see you in all of these. Or all of these in you.

I think the percentages are intended to means something like your Truthwatcher traits are 71% strong, your Skybreaker 70%, etc. That's the way the 16personalities test results are displayed, too, only instead of a blank at the other end of the scale they have an opposing trait with the remaining percentage to add up to 100.

What your results tell me is that whatever your traits are, they are strong. I only had three above 50% (the third was Windrunner). Jonathan, by the way, is a clear Skybreaker, which for me was only 34%.
