Thanks so much for taking my test. If you appreciate the way I explore nuances and explain complex information, please consider checking out my other projects:
Blog: Synthesizing & Symplifying Complexity
As an ENTP, one of my greatest gifts is synthesizing, categorizing, and simplifying information. I write about topics like personal growth, motivation, feelings, group dynamics, and Myers-Briggs.
Cryptocurrency: How it works and why it's important (making money, transforming society, and more)
What exactly are Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the thousands of other cryptocurrencies out there? How do they really work? Do they have real value, or are they just "made up"? Why are they important? This series is for everyone from complete novices to people already trading crypto who want to understand it more deeply. It's possible to make a lot of money here, but it's also easy to lose a lot if you don't truly understand it. Crypto isn't only important for investing, though—I believe it should be very exciting to social justice advocates as well.
COVID-19: The most important science-backed advice
Frustrated by all the misinformation and confusing advice out there about COVID-19, I synthesized hundreds of articles so you don't have to. Here's everything you need to know about COVID: how to keep your "bubble" safe, which specific masks are best, what's important about the new virus variants, the vaccines, and more.
Introduction to Race in the United States for White People (by a white person)
My goal is to guide you through the complex subject of race and racism with gentleness and without judgment or shaming. It's ok to have a lot of questions. If you're looking for Race 101, this is a great place to start. I'll go through it all step-by-step in a way that's non-political and approachable to anyone.
Coaching & Counseling (customized for your personality type)
I've spent over a decade working with leaders and teams at some of the top companies in the world. Do you struggle with decision-making, procrastination and motivation, social anxiety and confidence, fully feeling your feelings, or worrying that you're on the wrong life path? That's exactly where I was several years ago, and I believe I can help you.
September 1, 2021 Update:
Please see my explanation of the beta below. Thanks for your feedback! I believe I've addressed the bug that many of you emailed me about where it would keep adding more points if you used the back button after completing one of the cognitive function sections.
Access the updated beta version of the test here.
And please leave a comment here if you notice anything else. Thanks!
August 15, 2021 Update:
Exciting news: I've implemented the two biggest requests I receive for this test.
1) I completely redesigned the interface on mobile for selecting between two choices. Instead of having to tap one of the five small dots to indicate "definitely A," "slightly B," etc., there are now larger buttons right under the choices A and B.
2) I added a "back" button so you can return to the previous question if you made a mistake or changed your mind. If you're on desktop, you can also use the left-arrow and right-arrow keys to navigate forward and backward (but please keep in mind that when you go back—whether with the button or the arrow key—you'll reset whatever you'd previously selected for that question).
These were some technically-complex changes, so I'll leave this as the "beta version" for a while in case you discover any issues. Please leave a comment here if anything looks off with the scoring, you notice any other problems, or you have any other feedback.

June 23, 2021 Update:
I revamped the detailed results page for ENFP's.
March 4, 2021 Update:
Three updates today:
First, on the final page of instructions in the intro, I wrote about some of the ways your type can be skewed by your life circumstances, and I made the suggestion to answer the questionnaire as your child or teenage self might have.
Second, I added a big new section to the top textbox on the results page (at the bottom of it). It has info about: using typology for good reasons rather than boxing people in, immature and mature versions of types, and whether or not your type can change over time.
Third, I completely revamped the detailed results page for INFJ's.
February 7, 2021 Update:
Exciting news: I added a brand new section to the test with four new questions (screens 29 and 30). Before this, the test only asked you questions comparing Te to Ti, Fe to Fi, Se to Si, and Ne to Ni. To be more thorough, the new page has a question each for comparing Te to Fe, Ti to Fi, Se to Ne, and Si to Ni. This should add even more precision to your results, and your old bookmarked results URL's should still work fine with the new version. If anything feels off with this new update, you can access the previous version here. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any feedback or notice any problems.
I also made a few small tweaks to hopefully decrease the page load time slightly. And, I added some links above to my other projects. Thanks again for visiting, and I hope you're doing ok with everything going on in the world!
October 1, 2020 Update:
I've updated the results algorithm for the first time in a few years. This is based on a combination of feedback from visitors (thank you!) and my own evolving opinions about the relative importance of each piece when calculating a person's most likely types.
The algorithm change isn't dramatic; but, among several changes, the most significant one is reducing the importance placed on the "type families" question toward the end (by the way, I also updated the descriptions of each of those families).
Any saved results URLs you have from the previous algorithm will automatically update to use the new one. And if you'd prefer to use the old version of the test, you can access it here.
P.S., Pro-tip for desktop users: you can use the right-arrow key on your keyboard to quickly advance through the instruction screens at the beginning of the test.
June 8, 2020 Update: Thanks for visiting. Do you have questions about race, racism, or the protests happening right now? If so, I'd like to humbly suggest another website I created that's dedicated to explaining race in America in an approachable, step-by-step way without judgment or politics. Thank you, and I hope you stay safe with everything going on.
April 26, 2020 Update: Redesigned the mobile version of this site. Thanks for sticking with it earlier when it wasn't as easy to use.
