  1. Yes, the pony personality types..what are they? If you have no clue what I am talking about, please, please, go look up MBTI Personality Types. It will save me a lot of time and it is much simpler if you know what you are even talking about, before you post. Now, onto the purpose of this thread. You're probably wondering, "Where is she going with this?" Well, maybe you have been on a forum and seen these types of threads before..maybe not. Either way, we will still do this. ^^ I am basically making guesses on the Personality Type for each pony and placing it beside each pony's name. Some are blank due to not knowing or I am unsure of what personality type they have. Pinkie Pie - ENFP Rarity - [?] Rainbow Dash - ENTP AppleJack - ENFP Fluttershy - ISFP Twilight Sparkle - INTJ Discuss, also. Do you agree or disagree with the listed personality types? If you have ideas for Rarity, AppleJack or Twilight Sparkle's personality type, please let me know and I might add it. =D And for fun, my personality type is ENTP. What's yours?
  2. 'm wondering what the mbthi scores rank with bronies. I already know most bronies are introverts, but there are three letters left. What is your MBTI type? ENFP Who is your favorite pony? Rarity Which pony are you most like? Pinkie Pie What type of pony is your ponysona?(If you have one) Earth Pony If applicable, how do you contribute to the fandom? I create fan art and write fanfictions.
  3. I've been looking all over the web for characters that share my personality type (INFP), and many of them are interesting. Characters that share my type include: The Flash, Princess Luna, Luna Lovegood, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Clementine from the Telltale Walking Dead Game, Frodo, Luke Skywalker Spider-man, Ms.Marvel/Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, N from Pokemon, Prince Zuko, and even Toad from the Mario games. I'd love to see characters that share your personality types.
  4. Humans love categories. It is in our nature to sort and organize literally anything we can into groups or categories. Sometimes, if not usually, this is to our advantage. But other times, against logic, we attempt to do this with things that are nearly, if not totally impossible to categorize [simply]. But I'm here to fight a battle of the underdog. I want to explain why it is more of a hindrance to abide by the line of thinking that some things can't be categorized, than it is to just go with the flow of our own nature. Specifically in this case, the subject is the Myers Jungs Personality Test, often also called the MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator [test]). So first of all, some of you may be wondering, who am I to be qualified to give my stance on this test? And quite honestly, I don't have much credentials. I'm a computer science major. But... I have taken introductory college courses in psychology, sociology, and philosophy. So bear in mind that I'm not claiming to be someone I'm not. I'm honestly just writing this post because of my great interest in the subject. Know that I am not afraid of proving myself wrong. I love to argue against my argument, and then respond again with my stance. But there is a reason for that, of course. You'll understand why as you read on. The two known sides of the battle: 1. The MBTI test is utilized by a great amount of companies, and even government agencies, in order to place people in positions that are more closely matched to their personality. 2. Psychologists and the like who do not have their hands in the cash gained from using the test... Are primarily naysayers of the test's quality and accuracy at large. --- Here's my stance... The problem with the test isn't the test itself. The problem is the way people take the test, how they view the results, and how they think of themselves using the results. "Every individual is an exception to the rule" - Carl Jung, creator of the original idea that went into the later creation of the test by Myers. The test does not define you. In fact, all of the 16 possible results use what is called the "Forer Effect," which refers to the tendency of people to rate sets of statements as highly accurate for them personally even though the statements could apply to many people. However, this is where I get to sing the anthem of the underdog. If you know that there are 7 billion people in the world, each with their own individual personality, you might think it to be impossible to categorize personalities. But might I remind you of a old phrase, "birds of a feather flock together." Humans - people - sure we all have our own personalities, but we also have a plethora of traits, patterns of behavior, and tendencies that are similar to each other. There are less patterns of behavior than people in the world. Let me just give this comparison of lenses: "This only" vs. "More often than not." If you view the MBTI with the "this only" lens, then the test is horribly invalid. But if you view the test with the "more often than not" lens, the test starts to make sense. Each of the 16 types and their descriptions do not place absolute boundaries. They merely describe things (traits, patterns of behavior, tendencies) that people statistically have at a higher percent within the given type. --- Enough beating around the bush. I know what you want to hear. I believe the MBTI test has a certain usefulness. But I do not believe the results alone are nearly enough for companies and agencies to place people in different positions in a job, etc. After all, the results of the test only explain 4 things, of which you might not always respond to situations in the way that your type typically would. --- So in what way is the test useful? I think it is useful as a sort of starting point for adults to begin to learn more about themselves. It's more than mere entertainment, because you can use your results to keep furthering your personality in anyway you like. YOU define yourself. So if you can be open-minded about the results of the test, you might find some traits in the description that you agree with, and some that you don't. With your result, and its description, ask yourself "Is this who I want to be?" If you don't like something in your description, then start working consciously to prove part of your result wrong. If you do like something in it, then embrace it and keep strengthening that part of your personality. There are no limits to what you can make of your personality. Overall, I believe the ultimate benefit of the MBTI is that it can help all of us become more conscientious and aware of ourselves, who we are, the decisions we make, and who we want to be. --- If you are interested and haven't already taken the test, try it out. Just remember, your results aren't placing boundaries, but rather are placing pathways for you to keep molding your personality so you can be who you want to be. Links: Both are free tests, and each has a different way for you to answer. ~ Miles, INFJ
  5. "[R]eality will never measure up to your imagination." –lindsay, an INFP from PersonalityCafe “INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses… [they] have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything. Even for the most unlovable the INFP is wont to have pity… [o]f course, not all of life is rosy, and INFPs are not exempt from the same disappointments and frustrations common to humanity... [they] struggle with the issue of their own ethical perfection, e.g., performance of duty for the greater cause. An INFP...describes the inner conflict as not good versus bad, but on a grand scale, Good vs. Evil.” –INFP Profile on TypeLogic NIGHT SHINE is not, contrary to everything I have ever said or implied on this forum, simply another name for the person that is me. In fact, I often feel guilty using this name which I worked so hard to purify last year for my ordinary human and intellectual activities so long after its original meaning died. This blog also contains the reason that I feel that I no longer have any right to post anything on this forum under the name "Night Shine." No, Night Shine was not a person—he was a dream I had, an alternate persona specifically designed to be superior to the real, tangible person who is me. Last year, I regarded Night Shine as nothing less than my very soul. This blog, which will undoubtedly be very comprehensive as well as very melodramatic due to the melodramatic and complex nature of its subject matter, is aimed at dissecting my mindset from last year when I joined the Brony movement, and why that mindset was incompatible with the Bronies, with the Internet, and with the World itself. If you read this entire post, you just might understand me fully and completely, or at least as much as I do. Several factors made my perspective last year utterly fascinating to study in hindsight: 1) My absolute and unshakable faith in the belief that the Brony movement was the purest group of people on Earth. 2) The extreme willpower with which I radically shifted my mind into questionable thoughts, beliefs, and actions. 3) The degree to which my radical actions and thoughts were justifiable as a method of fighting depression, and the degree to which they were not. 4) My determination to transcend human nature by splitting my personality into multiple separate individuals. 5) How I was able to utilize the Brony movement to justify all of the radically positive and negative shifts to my lifestyle. 6) How my teenage rebellion developed as a form of moral purism. However, as I am retelling events only I remember from my perspective, this article will contain a lot of bias--that is unavoidable. This bias probably will skew the facts in the following ways: 1) Exaggerating the abnormality of the mindset and events in order to make them more interesting. 2) Exaggerating how 'bad' the mindset and events were, because I need to feel like I have learned from this experience and thus am insecure. Introduction: So, let's get started. What the heck does "Nocturnian" mean? I came up with the term in order to describe my mindset last year in April, when it finally came under assault by reality--but I'll get to that later. After thinking over the quintessence of Nocturnianism and considering over a dozen different ways to try and explain it over the past nine months, I have come to the conclusion that the Nocturnian mindset is the mindset of a Myers Briggs personality type which has Introverted Feeling as one of its primary cognitive functions, such as the INFP (for more information on Myers Briggs psychology, read the background information in the section later in this blog post). The opening quote from TypeLogic describes the relevant aspects of the INFP mindset better than anything else I have found in the past year (June 2013 to June 2014). But why "Nocturn-ian"? What does night have to do with any of it? Well, in order to answer that question, let us dive into the beginning of the story: how I used My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the Brony fandom as a method of radically altering my mindset and lifestyle. Before we dive into that, however, I would like to explain the situation in which I encountered MLP:FiM, as it helps to explain why I treated MLP and the Brony fandom the way that I did. The next blog posts will contain an account of each season chronological order of what happened to my little experiment, when I used a fandom to manipulate my emotions, personality, and lifestyle. Part 1: Death of Minecraft (Spring 2012) Part 2: Nocturnian Revolution (Summer 2012) Part 3: Fall and Rebirth (Fall 2012) Part 4: Heart of Winter (Winter 2012-13) Part 5: Ultimatum (Early Spring 2013) Part 6: End of the Era (Late Spring 2013) Part 7: A New Beginning (Summer 2013) (please note that the entries are currently in an unfinished form.) PREFACE This section will explain any information which will be used as common knowledge throughout the rest of the blog. Information covers Myers Briggs personality typology and the Brony phenomenon. Myers Briggs Typology My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Fandom, referred to as the "Brony Phenomenon"
  6. Hi everyone, relatively new poster here. I thought I'd like to take a little time to just talk about the MBTI or Myres-Briggs Typology Indicator. Some of you will probably know it is an indicator of your personality type which uses Jungian theory to tell you how your four main personality functions are: How you gain energy Introverted: You gain your energy from introspection and being alone Extroverted: You gain your energy from being around other people Introverts prefer to spend time alone, doing less stimulating activities (reading). Extroverts require more energetic activities to get their blood flowing (extreme sports). How you process information and what you do with it Intuitive: You like to see the bigger picture and possibilies and try new approaches Sensing: You like to look at finer details and prefer tried and tested methods Sensors rely on what they can physically sense. They call a spade a spade. Intuitives frequently see what isn't there. They see possibilities. A spade isn't a spade - it's a symbol of labour and effort that can change lives. How you base your decisions Thinking: You are interested in logic, reason and numbers Feeling: You base your decisions on feelings, emotions and how others might react Feelers are often better at understanding people's emotions. Thinkers can be less sensitive. Thinkers are generally calmer and less emotional. Feelers are often more creative and better at mediation. How you function: Judging: You are highly organised, able to prioritise and able to make quick decisions. Perceiving: You are messy, disorganised and often take time to make decisions. Perceivers are able to see more than one answer to a problem (especially if they are also Intuitives) whereas Judgers tend to go with their gut instincts and have the tendency to become single minded (especially if Sensors). As you can see, some traits appear to go hand in hand. XSTJ seems to be a very natural feeling partnership for logic and reasoning, while XNFP is at the other end and seems to work best for creativity and people relations. ESTJ is the polar opposite of INFP. Think of these types as the two extreme ends of a continuum. Here is an accurate version of the test that you can take to find out your own MBTI. Now... how does it relate to MLP? There is a fan-made poster that offers suggestions about the types of the major characters in MLP, but I think quite a few of them are quite inaccurate. Some of the descriptions do not totally match the characters in the pictures. I feel this is probably because the chart itself is quite old, and characters have developed significantly since then. Below are my reasons for typing the Mane 6, plus at least five comparable characters who also have this type. Twilight Sparkle - INTJ (The Mastermind) She is social awkward and very introspective (I). Given the choice she would rather spend time with just one pony (I). She is a possibilities girl and thinks outside the box, always looking for an explanation of what is in front of her (N). She looks for logic in everything (T) and is highly organised (J). Comparable INTJ characters: Gandalf - LOTR Kreia - KOTOR 2 Hetty Lange - NCIS: LA Harold Finch - Person of Interest Eric Northman - True Blood Walter White - Breaking Bad Squidward - SpongeBob Squarepants Stan Marsh - South Park Dexter Morgan - Dexter (really makes sense when you watch Lesson Zero) Rainbow Dash - ESTJ (The overseer) or ENTJ (The Commander) She is a thrill seeker who is always trying to push herself (E). She is able to make quick decisions (J) which she bases on logic (T). She struggles to empathise with others at times (T). As for N/S... I am going with S, but it's hard to say and can be argued either way. She seemed to have more in common with other ESTJ's. On one hand, she is not initially open to trying new things (like getting a pet and reading) but comes around eventually. I need more evidence of her "thinking outside the box" if I want to accurately type her. Both types effectively cover the "glorious leader"/"evil dictator" archetype, just slightly different variations of it. Comparable ESTJ characters: Lucy Van Pelt - Peanuts, Tara Thornton - True Blood, Titus Andronicus - Titus Andronicus (Commander Hurricane, anyone?) Prince - Romeo + Juliet Mr Crabs - SpongeBob Squarepants Regina George - Mean Girls Compareable ENTJ characters: Joss Carter - Person of Interest Light Yagami - Death Note Lt Commander Steve McGarrett - Hawaii Five-0 Miss Frizzle - The Magic Schoolbus Master Chief - Halo Harvey Dent - The Dark Knight Tetra/Princess Zelda - LOZ: The Wind Waker You guys decide on this one. Fluttershy - ISFP (The Artist) She is shy and socially anxious (I) preferring to be alone with her animals, who she loves (F). She is able to empathise with others easily (F) and is always there to comfort a friend. She finds it hard to make decisions quickly (P) or assert herself. She is quite set in her ways and reluctant to try new things (S). Comparable ISFP characters: Juliet -Romeo + Juliet Knuckles the Echidna - Sonic series (this made me lol) Jane Bennet - Pride and Prejudice Bella Swan - Twilight (yes, really.) Fry - Futurama Applejack - ENFP (The Champion) She is warm and sociable (E), mature, levelheaded and easygoing (N) able to see the bigger picture and think of possibilities (N). She isn't super quick to judge or very neat (P). As for F/T this is where there could be some debate. I think she is an F because she is always looking out for her family and puts others first. She doesn't come across as being emotionally distant in the same way that RD and Twilight can. Comparable ENFP Characters: Sookie Stackhouse - True Blood (lol @ this) Anakin Skywalker - Star Wars Ned Flanders - The Simpsons Aladdin - Aladdin Ariel - The Little Mermaid Sonic the Hedgehog - Sonic Series Aragorn - LOTR Simba - The Lion King Pinkie Pie - ENFJ (The Mentor) No prizes for saying (E). She is a people focused extrovert (E) who is always trying to make people smile. She is sensitive to the needs of others (F) and is usually able to see the bigger picture (N). She makes her decisions quite quickly (J) and despite being insane, she is quite meticulous. She always does what she says she will do. Comparable ENFJ Characters: SpongeBob Squarepants - SpongeBob Squarepants Debora Morgan - Dexter Mr Mackey - South Park David Palmer - 24 (imagine Pinkie Pie as President of the US) Ralph - Lord of the Flies Rarity - ESFJ (The harmoniser) This one makes sense in context. She is an extroverted people person (E) who is quite set in her ways and obsesses over details (S). She is often unwilling to try something new if she thinks it will result in her getting dirty (S). She's caring and generous (F). She is neat and tidy and not what I would call... spontaneous (P). Comparable ESTP Characters: Sam Hanna - NCIS: LA Rabbit - Winnie The Pooh Misty - Pokemon Lady Macbeth - Macbeth Lafayette Reynolds - True Blood (probably the closest comparison) So that's the mane six. Spike is probably an ISTP because he is clearly introverted (I), detail focused (S), disorganised (P) and often insensitive to others (T). I think Spike would be happy when he sees his comparable ISTP (Craftsman) characters: John Reese - Person of Interest Jason Bourne - Bourne series Jack Bauer - 24 Sam Fisher - Splinter Cell Kenny - South Park Darth Maul - Star Wars Anyway, tl;dr, but I'd be interested in hearing what people have to say about their own MBTI types.
  7. Hiya everypony! So I was watching the newest MLP episode and loving it, and whilst watching, I thought it would be a fun challenge to try and identify Maud Pie's Myers-Briggs personality type, since lately I have been getting very interested in that realm of psychology. Once I figured out her type, though, I had a sudden realization on why Maud and Pinkie are perfect opposites: they have the exact opposite personality types. In order to explain further, I will expand on why I think each pony has the type that I think they have below, using the website TypeLogic as my main resource on how each type acts and thinks. 1) Pinkie Pie is an ENFP: Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving. What does that mean? Click the link to find out, or the spoiler for a shorter version. 2) Maud Pie is an ISTJ: Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging. What does that mean? Again, click the link to find out, or the spoiler for a shorter version. Anyway. The reason that I thought this not only fascinating but also brilliant on the part of the writers is that they managed to create two characters who are opposites in every way in their personalities, in every possible dimension. When I realized that these characters are so opposite that I began to suspect that the writers intentionally constructed the characters with opposite MBTI types in mind, I was seriously impressed. What do you think? Am I overanalyzing here? I mean, obviously I am, but is it justifiably interesting in this case? Do you think that these personality types are accurate? Do you think the writers had personality types in mind while constructing these opposite characters? Most importantly, would you consider Pinkie and Maud to be 'perfect opposites' as I have dubbed them?
