I'm a Mastermind! (INTJ)

So this is my personality profile. Turns out that I'm an INTJ (Introvert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging) aka: The Mastermind! 

This is a form of the worldwide known and thoroughly studied MBTI Myers Briggs Type Indicator (If this was hogwash I wouldn't do it) . 

I pretty much agree with the results (Not like the Goal 5 one which was a bit inaccurate). I think it is definitely worth it to take the test and read more about our personality types. However, it is vital to note that the intention of the test is not to establish a series of strict labels and pigeonholes in order to justify certain kind of behavior (I am just paraphrasing what I have read on the books written after this method). 

In a nutshell, this is the way it works:
-After you take the test you get 4 letters

-The first letter is about how you replenish your energy and you can get an E if you are an Extrovert (you're energized by interaction), or an I if you are an Introvert (energized by ideas).  

-The second letter is about how you take in information. Letter S stands for Sensing and this means you focus on individual facts and details before seeing underlying patterns or whole concepts. Letter N stands for iNtuition and this means that you focus on what facts mean and how they fit together; paying more attention to implications, possibilities, and relationships between ideas than to facts and details alone. 

-The third letter is about decision making. Letter T means Thinking (focus more on logic and analysis), while letter F means Feeling (focus more on personal values and effects).

-Last but not least is the letter that talks about how you deal with the external world. Letter J means Judging (not literally means you are judgmental) and it's the kind of person that organize their worlds, likes to complete tasks and dislike ambiguity (Just do something!). Letter P means Perceiving and it's the kind of person that is more flexible and become frustrated with closure, rules and routines. They tend do leave things to the last minute sometimes.

Important: Everybody has amounts of these letters, but within each of the four groups one is clearly dominant. All words are equally good. 

Don't forget to make your guess before taking the test!

Tom Sawyer

Took this test: What literary character are you?

Your result for The Literary Character Test...

Tom Sawyer

Good, Human, Side Thinker

You are basically good.  Overcoming selfish desires or cruel ways, you focus on doing the right thing, when possible, and acting in a way to benefit everyone.  You recognize your human weaknesses and imperfections, and are able to respond to them in well balanced ways.  You are clever and analytical.  You think about various angles of something, and you calculate the best way to achieve goals.
Tom Sawyer is the youth in all of us; he biggest desire is to laugh and play all day, and pure adventure is his biggest vice.  His cleverness can get him into plenty of mischief and trouble, but even those who must punish him, also must admit that it is also what endears him so much to so many people.  He is admired and enjoyed by all, and even when his sense of fun dictates he must take advantage of them, he has a sense of honor and nobility that cannot be denied, even if he tries at times.
