I've been studying Jungian psychology and type theory recently, and now that I know about MD, I'm wondering if there's a correlation between MD and Myers-Briggs personality type. Are there certain innate traits that make someone more likely to develop MD?

Does anyone else here know their Myers-Briggs type? How about Enneagram? If you don't, here are some free, online tests you can take:

Myers-Briggs:

Enneagram:

Just remember that test results can be very inaccurate. I've been mistyped a couple times. You really have to understand the entire theory before you can accurately type yourself.

Let me know what type you are! If you need any help typing yourself, let me know. I know quite a bit about this stuff now and I can ask you questions to narrow it down for you. :)

Here are my types:

Myers-Briggs: ESFP
Enneagram (according to tritype theory): 7w8 > 4w5 > 1w2

Have you ever heard of Energy Profiling? It's kind of like personality profiling, but it covers more areas of life. There are four types: Bright/Animated, Soft/Subtle, Rich/Dynamic, Bold/Striking. I've found that Carol Tuttle's system has been more helpful to me than other systems.

INFP
Idealistic, loyal to their values and to people
who are important to them. Want an external life that is congruent with their
values. Curious, quick to see possibilities, can be catalysts for implementing
ideas. Seek to understand people and to help them fulfill their potential.
Adaptable, flexible, and accepting unless a value is threatened.

i got this one i was stuck at one question cos i had things from both of them  and sometimes its like i have a split personalty but i dont but its sometimes like that i forever in the middle of two different things i know that probably doesnt make sense to some people lol

INFP. Although I have gotten INTP almost 50% of the time. The F-T ratio is close to 50-50. However, I think I might be more F than T..

@nihapara - There are a lot of similarities between INFP's and INTP's. The difference becomes clear when you look at the cognitive functions, though.

The INFP's dominant function is Introverted Feeling (Fi), which means they are always very aware of their emotions. Their emotions are very rich and intense, and they focus a lot on how they are feeling (this isn't necessarily selfish, though. They often have a very deep understanding of all the different shades of emotion). Their personal values are very important to them. However, they are detached from the feelings of other people. Someone with Extraverted Feeling (Fe) as a dominant function would actually feel the emotions of other people (e.g., when some else is sad, they are sad, too). Someone with Fi will tend to be very honest. They would rather say how they truly feel than to say something to make everybody feel good. They are very likely to value individuality and beauty, and often have an interest in the arts.

The INTP's dominant function is Introverted Thinking (Ti). For people with Ti, their thoughts and ideas only need to make sense to them. They are usually very analytical and good with details. My dad is an INTP, and he loves talking about calculus and other things that make my head hurt. He's rather absent-minded. A good way to tell an INTP from and INFP is to watch their face. While the INTP isn't as aware of the intricacies of their feelings as an INFP is, they are actually much more expressive of their feelings. When excited, they tend to widen their eyes, raise their voice, and maybe even pace around the room. This is because their feeling function is Extraverted Feeling (Fe), rather than the Introverted Feeling of the INFP.

Anyway, I hope this helps in determining your type. :)

I'm an introvert myself.  But I read somewhere that it's possible to have the best of both introverted and extroverted.  It's called an ambivert.

@Way Too Internal - Introversion and extraversion is really about where you get your energy, and not about social skills. If you get your energy from being around people, and if you could spend all day at a party with 100 people you don't know, you're probably an extravert. If being around a lot of people drains you and makes you want to go sit in a dark closet for an hour, you're probably an introvert. Introverts are much more introspective. Extraverts are usually good at thinking on their feet. I probably seem like an introvert to a lot of people, because I'm very shy and I withdraw a lot to daydream—not to mention the fact that some people drive me nuts and I want to get away, lol. But I'm most definitely an extravert because I LOVE being around people.

Oh, and there's no in betweens when it comes to introversion and extraversion. You're either one or the other. It depends upon your dominant Jungian function, which doesn't change.

@Rachel - My sister's an INFJ too. :) It's so weird... there's 9 people in my family (including me) and we're all a different personality type. No wonder we have problems, lol. Most of them are introverts, so it's no fun for me. :/

Yeah, the tests can be confusing. It's better to read the descriptions and choose the one that fits you best. From what I've heard, most INFJ's are Enneagram type 1 or 5. 4 seems to be common too, although I think a lot of those are mistypes. My INFJ sister is a definite 2w1.

@Cordellia Amethyste Rose - Sorry, I didn't see that thread. I guess I should have looked. And here I was thinking I had come up with an original idea for a discussion. *cries*
