hello everyone long time no see :')
so, i know mbti is pretty pseudoscientific, but that doesn't change the fact that i've been an mbti nerd on and off for nearly a decade, and i think that fictional character development is one of a few places where it's really applicable and useful. the problem is, i feel like the level of complexity on which i want my characters to exist and the disparate models and methods of determining mbti type makes it hard to convey what i want to convey by going "oh yes [so and so character] is [so and so mbti type]." but today my friend and i were playing around with…
and we really liked it, and i find it particularly interesting that because it's a cognitive function based test, and cognitive functions can be so nebulous and loosely defined, it gives you your results as per three different models. i personally still just got entp for all 3 lol, but i took it for all five of my main characters to find that they all got disparate results between systems to some degree, in a way that i feel really does represent them well. if you have the time, i wanna see you folks take it as your characters too!! (and as yourselves if you're so inclined lol) i'm curious to see how different oc's personalities map!!
also, i should add, when you're taking them for your characters instead of yourself, please be sure to select "no" when it asks if your answers can be used for data analysis, as i'm sure the quiz-maker is looking to work with the personality data of real people and not fictional characters lol
