Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ typology

I’m kind of on a role today with posting. Sorry if you find that irritating but I am focusing on each page on my blog. So there ( sticking out my tongue). What I like about this test is that it is in depth.

  • Obtain your 4-letter type formula according to Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ typology, along with the strengths of preferences and the description of your personality type
  • Discover careers and occupations most suitable for your personality type along with examples of educational institutions where you can get a relevant degree or training
  • Understand communication and learning styles of your type.
  • See which famous personalities share your type

A friend of mine shared the ‘Human metrics Jung psychology test with me.  It took me about 5 minutes to whizz through it. there are roughly 50 multiple choice questions.


This is a summary of what I got. The areas that are covered are: (Drum rolls)

  1. Self development
  2. ISFP ideal careers
  3. Famous ISFP’s (don;t know how they managed some of these but hey ho)


Famous ISFPs
Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving

Marie Antoinette
Auguste Rodin
U.S. Presidents:

  • Ulysses S. Grant
  • Millard Fillmore, “The American Louis Philippe
  • Warren G. Harding

I’m rather  happy with my lot.

I would agree that I am rather hip and avante garde :D, OOOOH yes, I agree with the I am charming bit. I do not agree with the I am not a writer type. I perform well i n the splot light – I knew my foundation degree in Acting performance would come in handy one day!

I’m a do-er . Top career choices are Visual Arts and Graphic media

  • Interior design
  • Artist/animator
  • Fashion designer !
  • Religious education ( I am so rolling on the floor with laughter. Not religious I would cause anarchy)
  • Early child hood developer
  • Child care management — mmmmmmmmmmh I think knot.
  • Customer service ‘specialist’
  • Cosmetology ( Dictionary time)
  • Nursing??


An ISFP’s learning is improved when:

  • The subject actively engages their feelings and emotions
  • Material is presented in an aesthetic way
  • They participate in group work with the study material
  • Lecture materials are available (significantly helps their exam preparation)

An ISFP’s learning is hindered when:

  • Material is overly theoretical
  • Material lacks practical application
  • Information does not engage their feeling and emotions (reduces interest)
  • There is a lack of visual aids and active learning methods


What helps successful communication for an ISFP:

  • The topic includes feelings and emotions
  • The topic touches on aspects of beauty, attractiveness and visible/tangible qualities
  • The topic mostly relates to concrete, current issues
  • Communication with people from the SF or NF groups

What hinders successful communication for an ISFP:

  • The topic is mostly abstract, theoretical in nature
  • The topic is complex and deep in nature
  • The topic requires finding hidden, unobvious possibilities
  • Long communication with people from the NT group

  1. Sincerely amused and enlightened by the post. I always loved the Myers-Briggs. I took it off this very same website less than a year ago. I’ve changed over the years. I’ve shifted from an ENFJ to (I think) an INFP or something like that. I’ll have to take it again to make sure. I think I’ve always leaned introverted, but was quite extroverted in college. That’s where I first took the test.
