My sweet writer friend Leigh Michaels has posted a few times on her blog about a personality test she uses and she even uses it on her characters–which I think is super cool by the way.
I’ve been hesitant to take this test. Not out of fear that I may find out that deep inside my mind I’m completely insane but because I’m skeptical that any test can really tell me what TYPE of personality I have.
Anyway…I threw caution to the wind and said what the heck. So, here it is. P.S. Bartlett according to Myers-Briggs:
It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, INTJs know this all too well. INTJs form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population – it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the INTJ personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.
It sort of goes on and on forever so here’s the link if you’re really that interested. Better yet, you can take the test yourself. I have to admit, it really is pretty spot on.

I’m an INTJ too! And I match it really perfectly. The only concerning thing is that INTJ tends to be the sociopath villain personality, lol. So I guess we’ve got to look out for that. But I think it’s just because there’s the potential for a calculating person to abuse their own power, and any INTJ with a moral center won’t be swayed into manipulating others, you know?
Perfect explanation. As long as we stay well balanced, we will also stay off of the most wanted list. 🙂
Another INTJ here.
