There's only so much weight one can put on a personality assessment, but they're definitely fun - and, at least for me, the analysis of my Myers Briggs type is spot on.
Also interesting is how this compares to percentages in the general population:
ESTJ (8-12%)INTJ (2-4%)
I consistently test as INTJ so I enjoy this.
Interesting that the two most common personality types aren't on this list since they are so common. The two most common are ISFJ and ESFJ.http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-pers ... y-type.htm
Interesting that N personality types are so often lawyers since they are much more uncommon generally speaking.
I'm not surprised by the amount of J's there are, about what I'd assume.
I'm not applying to law school my husband is and he's an INTJ. He always gets INTJ and he took the long official test once. I'm probably an ENFP or ENFJ but I'm only a strong NF and I've never taken the official test. I'm trying to get work in HR currently but if that doesn't work out I'll probably go back to school to become an elementary teacher.
It's interesting that the huge majority of people who become lawyers are T's. After my husband started studying for the LSAT and I realized how analytical you need to be to do well on it - I'm not so surprised about all these T's - but I thought maybe one of the F personality types would make the list. T is the only thing all of these have in common. I'm curious where the other personality types rank in this list.
