I first did a Myer-Briggs personality test some years ago with a professional in the area. Then I was just borderline INTJ. The J bit was the border section. Since then, I've done it many times, in properly administered test and in quizzes on the net. Always INTJ. Here's a more detailed profile, in which I can recognise many of the components which drive me.

I've seen criticism of the use of the results as possibly typecasting people and thereby influencing our response to them.

I don't use it like that at all. I do find it a useful tool but usually use it to explain my own responses to myself, not to try to understand others. Sometimes I don't always understand my own decisions or thoughts but use such testing and ideas to help me understand or enlighten my decisions. I do see it useful in group dynamics.

Knitting content? It's been busy here but I've started a jumper for the little one mentioned in the post below. It's just plain stocking stitch with a small band of lace around the bottom and on the edge of the sleeves. I've done the back and am partway up the front. I'm doing the six month size and hope it will do her through the winter. She's just three months now, but babies can grow very quickly.
