So you've taken the basic Personality Type Test and you're still not sure of your type. But you've had a peek at the system and you think that you're probably INTP or ISTP. Don't worry. This happens to a lot of people when they're first getting into psychological type. Learning about type is a process of self-discovery and no test can replace your own self-assessment. But this test can lend you a hand in finding out whether you are INTP or ISTP.
Analytical, knowledgeable, and intellectual, you prefer to immerse yourself in complex problems and projects. If the interest is there, you can become so engulfed in the problem and your own thoughts about it that you tend to forget about everyday living and become absent-minded and remote. You are driven by a desire to understand and explore the problems that interest you on an intellectual level, which means that sometimes you are more interested in the ideas that govern a given problem than in the actual problem itself. You want to go your own ways and you resent being controlled or told what to do. And to your credit, you do not want to control other people either, if only you can be left free to organize the ideas in your own head.
Realistic, adaptable, and cool-headed, you can sometimes seem socially reserved, appearing distant and unengaged until you suddenly and decisively spring into action with a clear plan for what should be done. Though logical to the bone, you tend to care little for theoretical book knowledge, preferring to engage with the realities of the world directly. Independent and flexible, you tend to follow your own interests rather than allowing yourself to be swayed by the expectations of others (in fact, you most likely think that others tend to be a bit too sensitive). Daring and decisive, and at ease with risk, you tend to be mercilessly clear-sighted in sizing up the challenges that you face and reducing them to essentials. Though you are not one to split hairs over theory, your analytical faculties and powers of observation are sometimes drawn into analyzing how a physical object or piece of machinery works with an in-depth passion and perfectionism that others may perceive as being in contrast with your otherwise relaxed and laid-back demeanor. The way you see it, though, you would not necessarily be so detached towards others if only they would act a little more logically and make more sense.

Personality tests, whether they are professional or "official" tests like the MBTI test (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® MBTI), the Jung Type Indicator, or free online personality tests like this one, are indicators to help you find your personality type. No test ever devised can designate your personality type with complete accuracy or reliability and no MBTI test can replace familiarizing yourself with the works of Myers, Briggs, and Jung.
As the publishers of this online free personality test that allows you to discover your psychological type in the typology of Jung, Myers, and Briggs, we have endeavored to make this free online personality type test as reliable, accurate, and complete as possible.
Like the "official" tests such as the MBTI test (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® MBTI), the Jung Type Indicator, and other such professional, accurate instruments, our free online test is subjected to statistical controls and validation in order to make the results as accurate as possible.
We also draw on the psychology of personality types presented in C.G. Jung's Psychological Types as well the psychological insights into personality type tests as presented in the work of Isabel Briggs Myers, co-creator of the MBTI test (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® MBTI).
This test follows established theory. Our test follows the written theory of Jung, Myers, von Franz, and van der Hoop on the topic of personality type, rather than some slapdash approximation of Jung's theory.
Like the official Jungian personality tests like the MBTI test (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®), the Myers-Briggs®, or MBTI®, our free online test also draws on the works of J.H. van der Hoop and has endeavored to provide an accurate psychological assessment that stays as close to the official and authorized works of van der Hoop as possible.
The authors of this free online personality test are certified in the use of multiple different personality tests and have worked professionally with typology and personality testing. Prior to using our free online personality test, please note that while the four-letter type code provided is compatible with the type codes provided by the official MBTI test and the official MBTI® training material, this test should not be confused with official trademarked tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® or the Jung Type Indicator. The results of our free online personality test are provided "as-is", for free, and should not be construed as providing professional or certified advice of any kind. For more on our online personality test, please consult our Terms of Service.
