There are a few ways to break down personality types.  I noticed on personality sites that a good portion of a particular personality type in MBTI tended toward anarchy and ancap.  Other types grouped in other political philosophies.  I think knowing this could also help with focusing activism, as it won't do much good if a bunch of introverts are trying to go out and shake hands with random people.  

There are a lot of tests out there.  You may come out with slightly different results on different tests, and different days.  You might have better luck reading some descriptions once narrowed down to see if they apply.

Edit:  Hey all you lurkers out there.  Yeah, you.  I know you're there.  I bet your the same type as those posting here.  Feel free to get in here and vote.  You don't have to post a response if you don't want to.  You can keep being a lurker.  Thank you for helping out if you join in the survey.

Can you link directly to the site that will explain what those are and give us the test?

A test that got the right type for me: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

A site that does a good job describing the various types: https://www.personalitypage.com/html/portraits.html

That second link gave me a warning page.

It is a big topic if you dig into the entire thing.   
http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html

That will give you a very simple, but kind of inaccurate answer to the differences and what category you fall into.  Not everyone falls cleanly into a category, where the longer tests can give a more accurate answer to a percentage of preference.

Hmm, that's weird I never get any warnings. I really like the profiles it gives, mine (INTP) is spot on. Like really I could have wrote it.

I think this is an important thing to consider when we talk with other people about anarchism. For us NT's realizing that logical consistency isn't all that important to a lot of people can be hard to understand. But its true some people just dont care about theories and only care about reality, the how not the why. Others are more concerned about the emotional impact of everything, how a given idea makes people feel.

Obviously we can't know what everyone's personality type is before we talk to them, but you can usually pick up the big differences after a few minutes of conversation. If the logical argument isnt working on someone maybe it's time to try a different style of argument. And even if you can't, just understanding that the other personalities exist is helpful.

When I read the INTJ descriptions years ago, it was a very weird feeling.  It seemed to me like someone had been spying on me, and then ripped out my thoughts and put them online. 


The distribution of types so far is falling into place exactly where I expected it to.

I definitely understand that I took the test several months ago and here were my results

INTJ
I = 89%
N = 84%
T = 89%
J = 79%


But I definitely agree that the NT's particularly the Introverted NT's are more inclined toward libertarianism and anarchism, though I have come across NT's who were neither and in fact I came across an INTJ who was a straight out socialist and another who was authoritarian....out of a sense of self-preservation in the latter case. Tongue And I've come across libertarians and anarchists of other types as well. Hell, I have a friend who I am positive is an SJ, and he's a libertarian when most SJ's are conservative/neoconservative. So the MBTI isn't a perfect indicator of political ideology, though it is admittedly, a very good one.

Certainly MBTI has nothing to do with political philosophy. It's just that some personalities will tend to like structure more or prefer to have others make decisions for them. On the other hand, read this bit from Wikipedia on INTP's:

Quote
They also tend to be impatient with the bureaucracy, rigid hierarchies, and the politics prevalent in many professions. INTPs have little regard for titles and badges, which they often consider to be unjustified. INTPs usually come to distrust authority as hindering the uptake of novel ideas and the search for knowledge.

INT*s are probably just more naturally drawn to libertarianism, than others.

I use to participate on a typology forum.  I found about 50% of INTJ were libertarian/anarchist, about 25% were socialist, about 25% were statist (because they found it useful to protect their own income).  While that seems kind of insignificant in a way, it really isn't when you consider that the other types thought I was just insane.  50% is remarkably high for a philosophy that has a very small following.  

Certainly MBTI has nothing to do with political philosophy.

It certainly was not designed with that in mind.  By its nature of categorizing people into similar groups through how they think it makes sense that politics would follow it at least somewhat.

Yeah I agree, what I meant was that just because someone is an ESFJ doesn't mean they can't become an anarchist. And also that the reasons they would become anarchists would probably be completely different than what did it for me.

I agree, I doubt others would get here the same way we did.  I sure hope we get a variety of types.  It would only serve to strengthen us.  We can use this to help target our message to other personality types, that will be attracted by different types of arguments.

work had us do it, I chose the middle selection on everything.  These kind of things are no better than astrological signs.

If there is a middle selection it was written by a novice.  I would say it is better than astrology because it asks you how you think, rather than tells you.  It isn't trying to guess, it simply categorizes existing preferences.
