Have you guys ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test?  It's a fun test that breaks down your personality into 4 components:

  • Extravert versus Introvert
  • Sensing versus Intuition
  • Thinking versus Feeling
  • Judging versus Perception
It is based on psychological factors originally postulated by psychologist Carl Jung.

You can take the test here:

I am a solid ENTJ.  Apparently 1-3% of the female population is this type.  I wonder if there is any correclation between people that have successfully lost weight and personality types?

According to the test, ENTJ's:  "...tend to be self-driven, motivating, energetic, assertive, confident, and competitive. They generally take a big-picture view and build a long-term strategy. They typically know what they want and may mobilize others to help them attain their goals. ENTJs are often sought out as leaders due to an innate ability to direct groups of people. Unusually influential and organized, they may sometimes judge others by their own tough standards, failing to take personal needs into account."

I think that this is a pretty accurate description of me.  

Take the test and let me know what your initials are and whether you think it has any effect on your weight loss efforts!!
