Do you have a 'running' personality?

Okay, there's almost certainly no such thing but I got you to look :-)

I freely admit to having two obsessions in life, one is running and the other is personality and psychology - neither of which I am trained in!

Is there a correlation between these two things I wonder to myself. Highly unlikely but what could be better than bringing two obsessions together?!

Either way, it may interest you, whether or not you choose to tell of your type below, but it would be interesting to see (if there is any correlation)....

(I'm INFP)

I am INTP. I took the quiz but no idea what the result means

Congratulations! The first link will have a grid of the 16 types and if you click on INTP it will tell you about your type. See if it sounds like you.

Interesting that we're both INxPs

I did this and the myers briggs type indicator years ago but can't remember my results . Re took the test and got ESFJ , so nearly the opposite of you .

How interesting, thanks for posting :-)

Another ESFJ here (no surprise that an Aussie is an extrovert). I've done a few of these and always find them interesting... Bill Clinton is an ESFJ too.. as is Donald Duck... :)

Reply

Thanks :-) So interesting! It's good to see who you are 'like' I think

I am INFP as well :-)

Yay! *high five* that explains your alien picture! :-)

It's Megamind :-) I have a lot of sympathy for the character - I totally relate to him. :-)

ooooo i like this I_will ...... let me add my type for your research ..... ISTJ (34%) ... sounds a bit dull and starchy but then that could be true ... somebody's got to be boring hey!!! Thanks for posting :-)

Reply

Ooo oooo ooooo i take it back! Can i take it back? Please? I'm not boring at all!!! I just looked at the celebrities list - there are some seemingly smashing folk under my heading (from the ones i'd heard of) and ...... relax :-)

Reply

Thanks for joining in :-) glad you like it. No one is boring!!!

ISTJ (50%) It seemed to struggle with me. I took the short test, 25 questions, but at the end it said I was a tough one and asked a further 5 questions. Still couldn't decide so asked me a further 5 questions! Maybe I'm just too complicated :)

Reply

Complicated is good :-) thanks for posting your result....how do I make a pie chart at the end?!?

Reply

A pie chart? Not sure. Is it an option within the link you provided?

Reply

No, was just thinking of showing a result of types here, but I'm only half serious as to get a real result we would need to know everyone and not just those who happened/were drawn to look at this post.

Phew! Bet you're sorry you asked!!

Reply

Haha.

Hi. I just did this and am an ISFJ - quite near the mark but I am no Jennifer Aniston! Very interesting

Reply

Hi mossy, I came out as ISFJ on both too, the shorter one rated me at 95%. Just read the description and ouch, too accurate!

Reply

Thanks for joining :-)

Reply

Hi notbad. Just read your reply. Good to have company. I only did the short test before I had to go out. Will have to try the other one.

Reply

Also INFP (though the FP and P come out as "slight" preferences). I've done various other MBTI over the years and this is how it usually comes out !

Reply

Hooray for the INFPs...not that I'm biased or anything!

Reply

I'm an ENFP...genuinely pleased to be the same personality type as The Little Mermaid!!...oh and lots of other real people of course!

Reply

Three cheers for the ENFPs!! And the Little Mermaid :-)

I'm an INTJ. Pure analyst. Which may explain why I love my Garmin!

Reply

Oh, I'm sure it does! Statistics

Reply

INFJ here.Wow ! Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King. Mother Theresa AND Geoffrey Chaucer !!!

Reply

Oh, INFJs are interesting! :-)

Reply

Same here henpen, very interesting!

Reply

Today I am teetering between ENTP (Jim Carrey!?! NOOOOOOO!!) and INTP (JRR Tolkein and Richard Dawkins!). It will probably be something entirely different tomorrow.

Reply

Brilliant! Perhaps you are right between being introverted and extroverted!

Reply

INFJ -I took the long test cos the short one kept saying just 5 more questions. Just 5more questions.... Good to know I'm in the same illustrious company as Matin Luther King, Mother Theresa et al. :)

Reply

Ah, I get on with the INFJs I know irl very well :-)

Reply

ISFJ: wow, having just read the description it is quite scarily an accurate description of my personality and behaviour......quite eerie!

Reply

Oh, I like that! :D

Reply

Hi,

Took the test, but no straight answer there .

Could have a split personality as I am INTP and INFP in nearly the same proportions.

Looked at the descriptions, and both have a fair amount of truth....

Reply

I would rely on what sounds most like you. I'm INFP and I'm definitely confused most of the time!

Reply

then I guess it will have to be INTP.

Reply

Great! It's a very interesting subject

Reply

Did not realise the 2 test were different, so have now taken the long test and this time I came out as ISTP! But the description does not match much.

Pity there is not a confused type as surely this would describe me !

Reply

Also ISTJ apparently ... I don't really know anything about any of the celebs except George W Bush which I'm not that impressed by - and i really couldnt call myself a planner! I wish!

What's your type Iwill?

Reply

I'm INFP! Maybe repeating the test several times will give you interesting results...(but perhaps only if you are obsessed!!)

Reply

INFP as well.

Reply

Hooray!! Three cheers for us. Actually as a type we're likely to be drawn to personality stuff :-)

Reply

I got a mixed bunch of results. Does that mean I'm a bit mixed up. Hehe.

The results show how likely you are - according to my math - to be each type.

The way to know for sure is to read about each type and see which description fits you best.

10% ENTJ

9% ENTP

9% ISFJ

If you know your type, you can help (improve) 25quiz:

Reply

I would say the top one is your result. I have repeated both tests several times and the top result in the 25quiz was certainly the most accurate for me

Thanks for posting your results :-)

Reply

That's interesting, when I did this 7 years ago I was an ESTJ and now in both quizzes I'm a ISFJ hmmmm....... :)

Reply

How strange, perhaps your E/I and F/T are both fairly well balanced or your first result years ago was somehow erroneous. Did you read the descriptions? Perhaps one will fit you better.

Reply

I'd say my new one is a better fit than my old one, I guess my E to I is easier explained, although I've never liked crowds etc I can socialise and did more of that when I was younger and before I had a fiancée, although I've always preferred to be at home with a book than out partying most of the time :) as for the T to F I have no idea maybe I'm close on these being a research scientist (thinking) but I'm very attuned to emotions (feeling side?) I don't think I'm an extreme one though as extremes apparently can struggle with the give and take relationship and suffer from psychosomatic illnesses (I rarely get ill much to my advantage!)

Reply

Interesting, although F types can still make proficient scientists. Your S would make you very grounded in reality which I would imagine is important in research science.

Sounds like a very interesting line of work :-)

Reply

ENFP. I love the question about entering a room and sitting either at the sides or in the middle. In a cinema I always sit right to the side; no finer place in my view. Tell most people that though and they think you're an oddity. :-/

Reply

ENFPs are a delightful oddity! :-)

Reply

"Delightful oddity" .... I want that on a name badge! :-D

Reply

You could go to one of those T shirt shops and get one printed and get your photo put underneath just so it was clear :-) On the back..an anagram of Fuddle Dig Holy Tit!!

Reply

INTJ, and the observations in the description fit me perfectly. Wife's a bit worried that it means I have the same personality type as Hannibel Lecter!

INTP - me and Hayo Miyazaki, JD Salinger and JRR Tolkien apparently.

INTPs are fascinating!

INFJ- and as some other of the same ilk have commented - astonishingly accurate!

To link this to running, I find the 'vacancy' of running very helpful in processing the frustrations of the day - but also an excellent support of visualising solutions, such that when I get back and get stuck in to whatever it is that needs doing, it is very straight forward. I don't think think this is about physical energy, though it helps, but I do think it is about crystallising so that quicker, clearer completion follows. As a teacher, this is a great help and I just wish I had found running sooner!! Fitness and health which were the prime motivators for getting running are now secondary to the head sorting facility it offers!

I doubt this is about personality type, and more a commonality of running?????

Reply

Well, possibly but N types tend to think abstractly and S types more concretely so what you saying does make sense in regard to your personality.

Statistically there are many more S types than N types so it's interesting that so many Ns have revealed themselves here, but it also makes sense because the topic of my post, 'personalities' is an abstract subject.

That's not to say S types don't think abstractly, more they think concretely most of the time.

I could waffle on all day about it.....!!
