    I was wondering if there are certain personality traits that bass players share. Take this short test and click your results on the poll above.

    *** Note: This is an informal and abbreviated test, so you INTP types can refrain from pointing out flaws in the methodology. ***

    Didn't take the test you linked but after taking a few of these tests and reading up on the types I concluded that I am an INFP. I found out that you really have to think hard about the answers you give and be as honest and objective of yourself as possible to get accurate results for these tests. I fit the INFP profile very closely.

    Just took an online intro to Psych course that had us go through this. Interesting stuff. (INTJ)
    Yes, I like to hang back with the drummer. :bag:
     
  4. I'm an INTJ. Hmm, wouldn't have expected that but cool. :eyebrow:

  5. I seem to be one of those intp types

    I'm known I was an iNFp for many years. It explains a few things, like why I'm talented but broke.

    As one of those INTP types, I just can't help but point out that a lot of the extroverted types are probably too busy out in the real world doing things rather than answering online polls and tests such as this.

    But I really like this idea anyway and am curious what the results are for Talkbass members who DO have time for such things.

    ISFP for me.
     
  12. Ah I clicked off of it but I've taken enough of those to know I was at least : II_J

    The first two were by a good amount, with the second one being 50%.
    I don't remember what the 3rd one was.
    And the fourth was by 1%.

    I'm consistently INFP. I can be extroverted if I'm on a task. More of a coordinator than extrovert but similar.
     
  15. I don't fit into any B-M type; the questions on most of those tests are usually fallacies of false choice and are honestly unanswerable. Perhaps this means I am adaptable and fall across many types?

    I was INFJ and voted that way on your poll. Funny though because I work totally in public in front of people.

    From one INTP to another, I concur.

    EDIT -- I don't actually fit entirely neatly into that category. I was close to scoring as an INFP too. Reading both of the descriptions, I think I'm a cross between them.
