Hello everyone.
I've taken the tests online and cognitive ones also.
Usually I score entp or istp and sometimes estp or intp. It's confusing.
I always thought of myself as a introvert but family and friends would say otherwise. I like to be in my head and I'm not a big fan of people. However I'm very talkative when it's around close friends or I feel I need to speak up for something. I'm good at holding my own in groups when hanging out or one on one.
My fiance is a INTJ,she says I'm exhausting to be around sometimes cause of my energy and need to talk. We get a long great but she is the one who's pointed it out how and why I'm extraverted.
Somethings about me.
-like to debate. I've been called a devil's advocate since I was a kid and loved debating in general.
-get things done. I like to get and finish things quickly. Just do it type of attitude
-im loud apparently
-easy way to annoy me is to be micro managed and rules. I tend to challenge things and bend rules when I feel like it.
-short temper and impatient...I am working on this but I get heated easy but I'm also very passionate.
-i tend to be active by working out or always doing something even if it's video games.
-i like to read...history,fantasy,sci-fi,horror,biographies.
-humor is sarcastic dry normally. Witty
-im into computers.
-i don't go out of my way to fix things but can if needed.
-i consider myself geeky as I play magic the gathering dungeons and dragons a lot. I'm usually in my head thinking of fantasy lore,movies music. I like to write.
-rational and direct. I don't like beating around the bush.
-i like to solve problems especially challenging ones.
-i like joking around. Only serious when I really have to be.
-trial and error when learning.
-im a good salesman
-see things for how they are
-get bored very easily. Interrupt people who bore me.
-i analyze everything.
-messy. Absent minded apparently.
-get side tracked easily
Myself I felt entp but I'm not a inventor type of person

Prolly ENTJ...

Either that or your assertiveness and industriousness are pretty high. You are prolly high in neuroticism as well. All Big 5 traits.

Thanks for answering.
What makes you say that I prolly have high neuroticism?
You mentioned you get irritated easily. You also said you cut off people who bore you which is a form of anger, just like irritation is. I am going just based on this, so I could be wrong on neuroticism as a whole, but being prone to anger is is a characteristic of people who are higher in neuroticism. What I still don't know is if you feel other negative emotions like depression and anxiety which are the other prime emotions that people with high neuroticism have.

That's also why I thought on the other hand that it was possible you were an introvert with just a pretty high degree of assertiveness which has to do with taking charge and low in compassion with is a measure of low agreeableness, high industriousness which is how dutiful you are and an extension of conscientiousness (roughly translated as J tendencies) and explains your proneness to getting bored. All of this represents your curt behaviour. It's possible you also are low in politeness, but that is a factor of low Agreeableness rather than getting irritated easily necessarily and I am less sure of that because of your response you have just given.

Perhaps I am focussing too much on your serious side and I am ignoring your jovial nature. If that's the case, Enneagram 8w7 (or alternatively 831 or 813 [but these are prolly too serious of a type for you if I am viewing it through the lens of your jovial side]) seems like a better fit.

I still feel most comfortable putting you at ENTJ and this is more a read based on experience with ENTJ's rather than strictly theory. I am taking the profile of the ENTJ as a whole with this one.

This was informative and I have to say fairly accurate. Had to take a step back and do a lot more research. My lady even agrees that this seems the closest to me.
And I do have anxiety...something I've been dealing with for awhile.
My ennegram is a 8 with a 7 by the way.
Thanks again for taking the time out to do this.
