    Personality Types

    My old college roommate got me really interested in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality types years ago, and I find myself bringing it up far too often in conversation.

    I was talking to a friend a couple days ago about efficient/light packing, and I was telling her all about how great I think packing cubes are. (Though, I'll admit, this is a recent revelation for me.) She wasn't convinced, and I ended with saying that maybe the organization of it just appeals to the "J" in me. (She is a "P" type.)

    This got me wondering if the kind of people who like packing cubes and efficient packing and whatnot are "J" types like me. I'm an ENTJ, very heavy on the NTJ, for what it's worth.

    So, for those of you familiar with MBTI, where my "J"s at?

    And for those of you not familiar...

    It's pronounced "Pan-Jiff-Oh-Knee."

    I came up as an ISTP on the test. I didn't know what a packing cube was until I came across Tom Bihn while searching for a new messenger bag.

    istj!

    i took a two-day class through work about mbti-related things (they pulled a lot from this book: Amazon.com: Type Talk at Work (Revised): How the 16 Personality Types Determine Your Success on the Job (9780440509288): Otto Kroeger, Janet M. Thuesen, Hile Rutledge: Books). it was seriously interesting!

    INTP - rarest type for a woman - shoulda been an architect according to them.

    INFP here --- I was told I was the rarest of the bunch. Given I only know of one other INFP to date, seems reasonable so far.

    I LOVE this thread!!

    I also love the MBTI- hubby likes to tease me about wanting to assess everyone

    I'm an INFP and I wasn't even aware of the existence of packing cubes until I became a TB convert I've since tried them and love them...though this admittedly has more to do with packing/organizing my 8 children than with any latent "J" tendencies!

    I was INFP too - I've never met another one. I took the test in '96 or '97 though and have always wondered if/how it would have changed since then. I've just recently started experimenting with packing cubes thanks to my TB addiction, and I'm still rather undecided about them.
