I got a newsletter a few months ago about our personalities being similar because of our blood type.  I read the characteristics of a B person to my B friend and she was amazed at how it described her correctly.  

What do we think of this part of the BTD?

yes and 'a grosso modo' there s a lot of truth to blood type and personality, but again we' re all individuals.

I think even here Peter is right in his statements...but then people only see themselves often not that objectively as others do; and then....if you take the enneagram for comparisons, you will learn that we are the whole enneagram and only our outgoing showed face is the one we prefer to use daily
Compare Risos' enneagram & Keirsey's books *please understand me* and go also for Briggs-Myers *gift differing* here you will learn how types will match togethe and what will happen when underdeveloped ....or even onto their *desintegrative* ways....... very very exciting
and soooo true .....

btw...we do have a wunneful astrologuer on this board ...I think that such readings are really worth to be heared this man has loads of experiences and
yep.....can't deny...... his name is Robet ......

I learned a lot about myself when I took the MBTI and found out that my preferences were INFP.   It would be very interesting to do further studies on the correlation of blood type and personality type.

Okay..... I took the personality test and I am ISFJ.  Don't know if it is really how I am or not.  Lots of things fit me in both columns.

I am INFP and an A, RHTeacher, Songstress and myself must have personality similarities despite our different bloodtypes. Would be interesting to find the distribution of the different 'personality types' among the different blood types.

What is Riso's enneagram?  I guess I am an ISFJ more or less.  It is not a bad thing to be.  Why do some of you have a slanted line and another letter in front of yours?

Here is the mother of all testing boards.  Take the tests then do a google search on the actual test.

ther's no better or worse psyche pattern, everybody of us do have our own affairs with it ....
but what is awesome is to get to know that society is mostly built up on sp&sj matching styles (about 95% if I remember well) and all the rest in NF&NT-styles....
it just shows up our prefered role and face and daily form we are showing and using to and with others ...... but then we should go for integration of the rest of the others....means mankind is 4-polar.....

When I do MBTI seminars for corporations, I like to say the world needs all types.  Everyone is a unique "type" because the scoring is on a continuum.

I am a reserved, tough-minded/tenderhearted, ENTJ.  The out of pattern reserved extravert vs the out of pattern toughminded - tenderhearted thinker.  

A business for instance needs ESTJ's ISTJ's to execute ideas and run processes, it needs ISFJ's ESFJ's to create a sense of community and take care of the customers, EN's and IN's are needed to see what is coming in the future and prepare for it and drive processes clean.  ISTP's ESTP's are needed to put out fires and react to the present.  (This is just a small why we are all needed)....

Never think one is type is better than the others.  We all bring our unique talents and experiences to the world.

I have heard of the 4 personality types as in sanguine, and the other 3 I can't remember.  Is this similar to those types?

Look at the link I posted and then take the Jung Typology, the 144 question test is very reliable and valid.

FP's are generally in the HR department, design, business development, org development.  

ENTP's (my son and me with no sleep) are generally the entrepreneurs, don't last long in big corporations unless they are running them (think Jobs of Apple or Walt Disney).  In corporate life are generally the designers, big dog sales and business development.  Also can be plate spinners consultants, dropped in to rescue companies, change artists etc.

Don't think about the answers, just go in and quickly (first thing that comes to mind) complete the questions, should only take around 15 minutes.
