So, what is your Personality Type?

For a while I've been wondering if there are certain personality traits which predispose people to becoming collectors or appreciators of the garbage of the past (or traits which are common amongst us people) and feel it would be an interesting research study if conducted more officially, but lacking grant monies or any facilities I have no way to accomplish this at the level established academics would.

I've found that the MBTI, or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, to be a superior system of personality analysis. The MBTI "assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.[1]:1 These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types"


Anyway, If any of you would like to indulge me and my curiosity (as well as your own), it would be awesome if you could take this short 72 question yes/no test (takes like 5 minutes) and post your 4-letter personality type, which you can learn much about by searching Google, Wikipedia, or http://www.personalitypage.com/html/portraits.html:

THE TEST:

For starters, I am an INTP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intp) according to every test Ive taken without variation, including this one. The type description fits very well, but I have many ISTP tendencies which I would imagine would be a type more common amongst collectors. The MBTI seems to be uncannily accurate and particularly useful in the quest for personal understanding, so do it for yourself, not just me!

Hey there thanks for participating!

You are a "Duty Fulfiller" or "Inspector" (http://www.personalitypage.com/html/ISTJ.html) and are probably naturally good at everything I am terrible at. My girlfriend is an ISTJ also and she keeps my head from totally drifting into the clouds, makes me pay my bills, etc. I return the favor by making her look at the big picture when she is focusing on upsetting little things, etc. ISTJs are good people to have around.
