This one is from the legendary C. Jung:

You might find it interesting to take it and post your result:

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

It said my type was INTP.

Introverted 56%

Intuitive 50%

Thinking 62%

Perceiving 11%

It's a bit odd, but seems reasonably accurate. There was a test like this at the Mind section at the museum. Although, it seems a bit dodging consisting that I had a bit of both on either side. Like...

that man is not truly one, but truly two.

Extraverted 33 Sensing 1 Feeling 38 Judging 67

I do think I've been more of an extravert recently then I've ever been. Not sure what sensing means, I do try to stay in touch with my feelings, i don't think I judge things right off the bat, but over time, I do develop my perception of things. Comparitively accurate to some quizzes I've taken.

It was pretty close to the truth but I am sorry I have forgotten what it was.

Maybe you can do the test again? That will give an even updated answer
