Eye What would happen to you in a Werewolf game based on your Myers Briggs personality

You know the Myers Briggs personality test? There are 16 different personality types marked by different letter combinations, and while it's completely unscientific, it's good fun.

The other day, Greenie and I found an article called Here’s What Would Happen To You In A Horror Movie Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type, and we soon realised it works perfectly for Werewolf as well.

Being an ENTJ, this is what I got:
Quote:
The ENTJ is always the twisted authority figure in the horror movie. They aren’t the actual killer but they’re nonetheless shot in the name of justice by a vigilante ISTJ who’s had enough.
Which I guess is true because I have a tendency to try to lead the village even when I don't exactly know what's going on and it often gets me lynched, usually with reasoning such as "she talks too much" (which is in my opinion the worst reason to suspect anyone). So annoying when that happens.

How about you?

If you don't know your personality type, you can take the test here.

I guess I'm dead:

Quote:
The INTJ isn’t the actual killer but they’re the person everyone suspects to be the killer from the get-go. They’re murdered in an anxious fit by the ESFP, who spends the rest of the movie crying into the INFJ’s arms over their misguided crime of passion.
Although, I'd like to think I could either prepare against, or find a way out of any ESFP's impulsive, emotionally-driven plans.

First time around, I did a different test and got ENFJ:

But using the test Agan linked at the first post, I am INFJ-T:

"The INFJ fares surprisingly well in a horror movie, until the story needs a martyr. And then the INFJ is volunteering themselves to die faster than Katniss Everdeen at a Hunger Games reaping."

Don't know how well that matches with my Werewolf history of either being lynched early for valid reasons (because I was stupid) or trying and failing to manipulate the entire village. I think the ENFJ description was closer.

Last time I took it, was to see what Star Wars character I was... ISTJ (Owen Lars) just barely edging out ISTP (Chewbacca).

Basically the same results this time taking it...I'm firmly set in the IST (all 70% or more) and almost a dead split between J and P. This time my perception edged out judgement, 54% to 46%. Both ISTJ and ISTP are probably the most accurate descriptions when it comes to my WW story:

Quote:
If anyone can survive a horror movie it’s the ISTP. They’re secretive, cunning, reactive and agile. Too bad they often turn out to be the killer’s accomplice. If only they’d use their powers for good.
When a wolf, this is almost always me. I know I probably won't survive to the end, so I'm always planning for the best moment that my death would benefit my mates, and then causing as much destruction as possible before I'm lynched.

Quote:
The ISTJ always survives the horror movie. They’re cautious to a fault, they trust no one and they aren’t afraid to do what needs to be done in the name of self-preservation. They’re the one holding the traumatized group together years after the horror has passed.
Even though on the good side, I tend not to survive to the end, I usually last nearly to the end, because I become a tasty lynch bait target. A few games I've gone the martyr route, but most of the time I do whatever I have to to stay alive.

Unless it is in a Dead Thread game, in which case you are immortal...you have within you blood of dragons.

Uh-oh!

That does happen though, you saying something along the line of "I'm sorry my dear but you have to die now" and casting the final vote.

Also it's amusing that you're, like, the two types that always survive the horror movie (or werewolf game) but yourself never survive.

Ah, well, clearly if I was, I wouldn't tell you, would I? But, then, would I tell you if I wasn't?

Poor Uncle Owen. He was in the wrong movie genre.

The ESTJ doesn’t die immediately but their ego does get the best of them eventually. After scraping through a few near-death scenarios they start getting cocky – and die showing off their lack of caution.
I mean, considering the amount of times I've been a cobbler voting for myself, it seems pretty accurate.

So, while waiting for the game to start, I decided to see if there was a Myers Briggs chart for our fandom. And, of course, there is. Combining this with Aganzir's article, we find that, had "The Lord of the Rings" been a horror movie, the killer would have been... Sam.

I am firmly EN but the F/T and P/J axis is much more open to shifting, depending on the test I take. But it makes no odds - as according to this almost all ENs fail to survive.

I thiiiiiink I'm an ENFJ? I took the test a while ago and don't feel like doing it again.

Quote:

Seeing as I successfully coached two middle schoolers out of crisis mode yesterday, this sounds accurate. But I can't allow Thanleon to perish!
