Theory & Essay

You’ve Got…Personality!

EXACTLY!

That damn Lloyd Price…you go boy.

Long time ago (long long time ago…long time ago <—- name that reference, and if you get that you are WAAAAY good) here on VSB, we used to reserve Fridays for a sort of “getting to know you” experience amongst the readers. We figured that we had such a dope community we should learn as much about folks as possible. Plus all of the icebreakers (of sorts) were good for getting lurkers out of hiding and introducing ninjas to new ninjas.

So I’m about to bring it back to the bottom of the map. One of the funnest ways to learn about yourself and others around you is via personality tests. So I figured, what the hell, let’s all take a short one and one we’re all familiar with: The Jung Typology test. I told the test and it turns out that I’m an ENTP.

They are intensely curious and continuously probe for possibilities, especially when trying to solve complex problems. Inventors are filled with ideas, but value ideas only when they make possible actions and objects. Thus they see product design not as an end in itself, but as a means to an end, as a way of devising the prototype that works and that can be brought to market. Inventors are confident in their pragmatism, counting on their ability to find effective ways and means when they need them, rather than making a detailed blueprint in advance. A rough idea is all they need to feel ready to proceed into action.

 

Inventors often have a lively circle of friends and are interested in their ideas and activities. They are usually easy-going, seldom critical or carping. Inventors can be engaging conversationalists, able to express their own complicated ideas and to follow the ideas of others. When arguing issues, however, they may deliberately employ debate skills to the serious disadvantage of their opponents.

Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle, that sounds about right. Basically, I will tear you apart with my vicious rhetoric…then take you out for a shot later on that night. I’m like a Sweet-n-Sour Gummy bear. I’m fairly certain that those that know me might agree. Basically…punks jump up to get beat down. Or something.

Anyway…take the test and peep your personality type. It’s a fun way to kill time and then we can all find out how we stack up. Do you agree with your description? Why or why not?

Oh, by the way, #geminiseason is coming. Happy Friday, VSB. Happy Friday.

And as a special treat, please check out the 3rd episode of WTF Iz Rong w/ Panama Jackson. It’s on like Donkey Kong.

And dont’ forget to cop your VSB crewneck while the weather outside is still frightful and what not. The shirts were borne out of a collaboration with Coliseum Apparel and VSB. The shirts are dope and be on the look out for a photoshoot coming soon!

Cash Rules Everything Around Me, CREAM get the money…dolla dolla bill y’all.

Petey out.

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future.

    My profile is long, so I’ll just post the link for those who care to read it: http://typelogic.com/isfj.html

    Oh, and I’m guessing that reference is from “Kings of Comedy.” If I’m right, I accept checks, cash, money orders, and Link.

    I got INTP. I always get INTP. It fits me to a tee with my personality, temperament, and career aspirations.

    “They will listen to amateurs if their ideas are useful, and will ignore the experts if theirs are not. Authority derived from office, credential, or celebrity does not impress them. Architects are interested only in what make sense, and thus only statements that are consistent and coherent carry any weight with them.”

    3. It says I’m introverted, judging, feeling and intuitive… I’d agree with that. Not necessarily in that order but *shrugs* I suppose it’s right. I’d like to think I’m more outgoing when I’m interested in the people I’m around; if I’m around dull people I tend to be…dull. Get me around people who interest me and I’m more prone to talk.

    I got ENFJ.

    “ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear.”

    Super spot on *sad face*

    I mean I am a cancer, so I’ve always been a nurturer and put others (like my children) before myself and I don’t even want to get into the whole getting abused by less sensitive people cuz ninja is just ungrateful and flat out mean.

    son, if Flambé..Puree…Toure ain’t block you now….he gonna block you like mutombo…lmao

    i’ve done Myers-Briggs a couple of times….first time i got INTP (aka the Architect – Einstein and Jefferson are 2 examples) or ENTJ (FieldMarshalls = Margaret Thatcher, Napoleon, Golda Mier)

    so i guess that means that i have the innate capability of leadership, but i perfer to be the Mastermind (no Nas)….

    or maybe it means i’m 50% brains, %50 leadership, and 100% Knicks fan. Knicks winning the title? Stranger things have happened.

    I took out some paragraphs but other than the perfection part (I just care if it works) this is a decent summary of me:

    To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise — and INTJs can have several — they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don’t know.

    INTJs are known as the “Systems Builders” of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause to an INFJ; both perfectionism and disregard for authority may come into play, as INTJs can be unsparing of both themselves and the others on the project. Anyone considered to be “slacking,” including superiors, will lose their respect — and will generally be made aware of this; INTJs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. On the other hand, they do tend to be scrupulous and even-handed about recognizing the individual contributions that have gone into a project, and have a gift for seizing opportunities which others might not even notice.

    To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. :-) This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete’, paralleling that of many Fs — only instead of expecting inexhaustible affection and empathy from a romantic relationship, the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.

    Probably the strongest INTJ assets in the interpersonal area are their intuitive abilities and their willingness to “work at” a relationship. Although as Ts they do not always have the kind of natural empathy that many Fs do, the Intuitive function can often act as a good substitute by synthesizing the probable meanings behind such things as tone of voice, turn of phrase, and facial expression. This ability can then be honed and directed by consistent, repeated efforts to understand and support those they care about, and those relationships which ultimately do become established with an INTJ tend to be characterized by their robustness, stability, and good communications.

    I did everything I could to answer all the questions that pertained to the feelings of others with a “no,” and I still got ENFJ….It says I’m highly sensitive to others. Okay, so maybe it’s right. However, the one thing I disagree with is this statement here:

    “Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others.”

    No. I will not neglect me for you. EVER. Other than that, I’d say it was pretty spot on. Oh and this was my fave line:

    “They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes.”

    Basically that was a long winded way of saying I’m awesome :D

    Jammy jams! What in God’s green earth is this test?! I took the damn test and it revealed to me that I am an ISFJ. Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging. Great! I don’t even agree with it!!!!!!! Whatev.

    What I DO have a problem with is the career choices that these idiots assigned me. I could be a secretary (WTFaggers?!), Paralegal (Again WTFaggers?!), Religious Education (Why don’t you just shoot me and bury me alive if the bullet didn’t go through my heart!). My career choices don’t have any leadership or growth opportunities! They just have me slaving.

    The ISFJ has my future looking really bleak and poor. Poor no be ma potion! Tufiyah! I reject it in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!!!!!

    So, the question is what am I?! I am everything BUT that HORRID ISFJ!!!!!

    The INFJ———>hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life(check)
    are activists (check)

    ENFJ———-> entrepreneurial inclination (CHECK)
