How many SheWriters have taken the Myers-Briggs personality test at some point?
Do you find that your personality type reflects how you write?
Do you find that your characters tend to fall into certain temperaments?
(If you have never taken one of these tests, you can find one here: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp)
When I am writing a character, I definitely step out of mine and into theirs. When I am working up a character, sometimes I'll even take a personality test as them, to really get into how they work and think.
An employer tested me... concluding I'm INTJ/P...
I have no idea how this relates to writing. My characters are a reflection of all temperments, which I conclude to mean that I too am jumping in and out of character. I must admit however, whenever I've take these tests, I always test in this less than 3% bracket, despite when I'm in team settings and everyone is asked to raise their hand, concurring to some consensus, my hand is always up there with the majority. So I have no idea how to interpret all this, and consequently don't. i just write when the mood hits.
They speculate that Ayn Rand and Jane Austen were INTJs, and Kafka and Tina Fey are said to be INTPs.
I don't think it relates necessarily to what characters you write, but rather how you approach your writing. Organizationally, how your ideas come to you, etc...
Of course, there is also always room for plenty of error on these tests...
