Ian Mason, you are right, you are you and no one has the right or responsibility to change you. These characteristic profiles can be fun and enlightening, but they can be dreadful, especially when someone thinks their style is better than others. Each person is accountable for his/her own behavior and if one has difficulty with relationships, these kinds of profiles can help identify problem area. So, have fun, get some laughs, and get on with being who it is you are created to be.

INTJ is a Myers Briggs personality type. I posted a discussion on it in the INTJ group and I think in this group too. When I took the Myers Briggs INTJ is the result I got for the test. I tied for INSJ.
