The Lyrics

Funny that nobody has yet made any Myers-Briggs type indicator (MBTI) parodies. So a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Someone's gotta be the first to do it and INTJs are the best for that.
Myers - Briggs types, they are sixteen
I said Myers - Briggs, we all will fit in
I said Myers - Briggs, they're neat and they're clean
There's no need to be uncertain -

So find out - what is your MB type
I said find out - because it is no hype
if you're adult - then your mind will be ripe
so it is MBTI test time -

- I'm proud to be another INTJ
It's rarest type for women, INTJ
They are clever and clean, and they speak when they mean
Think of Gandalf and Hermione!

I'm proud to be another INTJ.
they call us Masterminds, the INTJ
Analytic and geek, we solve the problems we see
We rather think when we do than we'd feel

Reader, are you listening to me?
I said, reader, what's your type's gonna be?
I said, reader, test yourself, find and see
But you've got to know this one find!

No type is no better nor worse
I said, no one should put cart before horse,
I said find your type and then find your course
of the introspection of your mind

I'm proud to be another INTJ
we're problem solvers, INTJ
We know practise, you see, and we'll form theory
we work on what we master and know -

We seldom do lose our cool, we're too hard to fool
We're immune to B.S. and how!

I'm proud to be another INTJ
an introverted thinking INTJ.
We learn and we read, and we're obsessed indeed
when we master the tasks what we do

Reader, I was once so confused
I was geeky and I had heavy blues
I felt no one cared if I were alive.
then I did find my M-B type!

That's when I did my M-B test
and I did find type which fit me best
Indicator called the INTJ
And I found me back on my way -

I'm proud to be another INTJ
intuitive, prudent INTJ
I love music and songs and I cannot get wrong
when I come here at Am-I-Right!

INTJ
It's fun to find myself an INTJ

Seems like the Dreaded Mister Number Ones Man has come here again. Sigh.

Some other INTJ's are Vladimir Putin, Donald Rumsfeld, Lance Armstrong, and “Professor Moriarty,” (Sherlock Holmes’ enemy). Welcome to the club.

If you read the descriptions of the 16 personality types, you will see that they overlap so much and are so general that they will remind you of horoscopes. Even if there is one type-description that fits you best, the difference between that and some other is marginal. To illustrate, here are the descriptions of two personality types:

ISTJ
Quiet, serious, earn success by thoroughness and dependability. Practical, matter-of-fact, realistic, and responsible. Decide logically what should be done and work toward it steadily, regardless of distractions. Take pleasure in making everything orderly and organized – their work, their home, their life. Value traditions and loyalty.

ISFJ
Quiet, friendly, responsible, and conscientious. Committed and steady in meeting their obligations. Thorough, painstaking, and accurate. Loyal, considerate, notice and remember specifics about people who are important to them, concerned with how others feel. Strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home.

The MBTI mistakenly assumes that personality falls into mutually exclusive categories. You are either an extrovert or an introvert, but never a mix of the two. Yet most people fall somewhere in the middle. If the MBTI also measured height, you would be classified as either tall or short, even though the majority of people are within a band of medium height.

The consequence is that the scores of two people labelled "introvert" and "extrovert" may be almost exactly the same, but they could be placed into different categories since they fall on either side of an imaginary dividing line.

One other thing, and this matters especially for anybody who thinks personality tests can guide them to a perfect career. According to official Myers-Briggs documents published by its exclusive European distributor, the test can "give you an insight into what kinds of work you might enjoy and be successful doing." So if you are classified as INTJ (your dominant traits are being introverted, intuitive, and having a preference for thinking and judging), the best-fit occupations include management consultant, IT professional, and engineer.

Would a change to one of these careers make an INTJ more fulfilled? Unlikely, according to psychologist David Pittenger, because there is "no evidence to show a positive relation between MBTI type and success within an occupation … nor is there any data to suggest that specific types are more satisfied within specific occupations than are other types." Pittenger advises "extreme caution in [the MBTI test's] application as a counselling tool." Then why is the MBTI so popular? Its success, he argues, is primarily due to "the beguiling nature of the horoscope-like summaries of personality and steady marketing."

Like the SAT, this test exists because of its cult-like status in assessing employees and its enormous profitability.

ENFJ, you forgot Emperor Palpatine, Witch-King of Angmar and Lord Voldemort.

Archie Debunker: I am indeed an engineer. My score on introvert/extrovert line was finely on the side of introvert. ENTJ is the "Arschloch" type indicator. The MBTI test should only be done only to adults, whose character is mature, and not to young people. I did choose my occupation before I did my MBTI test.

No DOPE: Of course they do overlap. We are humans, not robots. My own score was on borderline of ENTJ, ISTJ and ESTJ, but in my humble opinion the type indicator where I fell, INTJ, describes me best..

Moreover, MBTI type indicator predicts in which occupation one is _successful_. It does not predict whether one is happy in it or if it is enjoyable. I hate the work I'm doing, but it is paying me fairly well - far better than, say, that of teacher or nurse, which I also once considered. After all, the main purpose of work is money, not fulfillment nor enjoyment.

Again: "there is 'no evidence to show a positive relation between MBTI type and success within an occupation.'" As I did, you have charted a course for misery. Being a bit of a polymath and needing to graduate from college as an immediately employable breadwinner, I became an electrical engineer. I subsequently had only 10 years of enjoyable creativity, designing MIL CPU's out of integrated circuits (4 AND gates or 2 flops to a chip). Then came the 8080, a new generation of hot-shots, and I was kicked upstairs to Management, which I, a shirtsleeve engineer, hated. I eventually had a nervous breakdown. The main purpose of work is NOT money. If you enjoy your work, you will do well at it and the money will come. But if you go to work every day, filled with dread and hatred, you will eventually be doing the Thorazine shuffle and end up with no money for retirement. You have been warned. Following your proclivities is all; impedance is just a vector.

Archie, I'm a Finn. We don't do medication. We have families and hobbies. For me, history re-enactment, sailing and aviation are my ways to flip the "off" switch on my brain.

I have chemical engineer's education. Came the recession of the nineties, and no jobs were to be found in chemical industry anymore. I went to IT as it sounded promising. I have hated it every day, but then again, what are the choices? None. When your country has 20% real unemployment, you take what you get. It's that simple for the X generation. Sorry, no dream jobs for us nor choice of occupation on basis on what we like or love. For GenXers it is a) whatever we get and b) what pays. The choices are either that or living off dole. There are always millions of Indians and Chinese to compete for your job if you don't happen to be unsuccessful. It is called Capitalism.

And given to my MBTI type, I have so far been quite successful. Happiness and satisfaction are just secondary issues.
