    1. Conscientious
        1. Hard work. The Conscientious person is dedicated to work, works very hard, and is capable of intense, single-minded effort.
        2. The right thing. To be Conscientious is to be a person of conscience. These are men and women of strong moral principles and values. Opinions and beliefs on any subject are rarely held lightly. Conscientious individuals want to do the right thing.
        3. The right way. Everything must be done "right," and the Conscientious person has a clear understanding of what that means, from the correct way to balance the checkbook, to the best strategy to achieve the boss's objectives, to how to fit every single dirty dish into the dishwasher.
        4. Perfectionism. The Conscientious person likes all tasks and projects to be complete to the final detail, without even minor flaws.
        5. Perseverance. They stick to their convictions and opinions. Opposition only serves to strengthen their dogged determination.
        6. Order and detail. Conscientious people like the appearance of orderliness and tidiness. They are good organizers, catalogers, and list makers. No detail is too small for Conscientious consideration.
        7. Prudence. Thrifty, careful, and cautious in all areas of their lives, Conscientious individuals do not give in to reckless abandon or wild excess.
        8. Accumulation. A "pack rat," the Conscientious person saves and collects things, reluctant to discard anything that has, formerly had, or someday may have value for him or her.
    2. Sensitive
        1. Familiarity. Individuals with the Sensitive personality style prefer the known to the unknown. They are comfortable with, even inspired by, habit, repetition, and routine.
        2. Concern. Sensitive individuals care deeply about what other people think of them.
        3. Circumspection. They behave with deliberate discretion in their dealings with others. They do not make hasty judgments or jump in before they know what is appropriate.
        4. Polite reserve. Socially they take care to maintain a courteous, self-restrained demeanor.
        5. Role. They function best in scripted settings, vocationally and socially: when they know precisely what is expected of them, how they are supposed to relate to others, and what they are expected to say
        6. Privacy. Sensitive men and women are not quick to share their innermost thoughts and feelings with others, even those they know well.
    3. Vigilant
        1. Autonomy. Vigilant-style individuals possess a resilient independence. They keep their own counsel, they require no outside reassurance or advice, they make decisions easily, and they can take care of themselves.
        2. Caution. They are careful in their dealings with others, preferring to size up a person before entering into a relationship.
        3. Perceptiveness. They are good listeners, with an ear for subtlety, tone, and multiple levels of communication.
        4. Self-defense. Individuals with Vigilant style are feisty and do not hesitate to stand up for themselves, especially when they are under attack.
        5. Alertness to criticism. They take criticism very seriously, without becoming intimidated.
        6. Fidelity. They place a high premium on fidelity and loyalty. They work hard to earn it, and they never take it for granted.
    4. Dramatic
        1. Feelings. Dramatic men and women live in an emotional world. They are sensation oriented, emotionally demonstrative, and physically affectionate, They react emotionally to events and can shift quickly from mood to mood.
        2. Color. They experience life vividly and expansively. They have rich imaginations, they tell entertaining stories, and they are drawn to romance and melodrama.
        3. Attention. Dramatic people like to be seen and noticed. They are often the center of attention, and they rise to the occasion when all eyes are on them.
        4. Appearance. They pay a lot of attention to grooming, and they enjoy clothes, style, and fashion.
        5. Sexual attraction. In appearance and behavior, Dramatic individuals enjoy their sexuality. They are seductive, engaging, charming tempters and temptresses.
        6. Engagement. Easily putting their trust in others, they are able to become quickly involved in relationships.
        7. The spirit is willing. People with Dramatic personality style eagerly respond to new ideas and suggestions from others.
    5. Aggressive
        1. Command. Aggressive individuals take charge. They are comfortable with power, authority, and responsibility.
        2. Hierarchy. They operate best within a traditional power structure where everyone knows his or her place and the lines of authority are clear.
        3. Tight ship. They are highly disciplined and impose rules of order that they expect others in their charge to follow.
        4. Expedience. Aggressive men and women are highly goal-directed. They take a practical, pragmatic approach to accomplishing their objectives. They do what is necessary to get the job done.
        5. Guts. They are neither squeamish nor fainthearted. They can function well and bravely in difficult and dangerous situations without being distracted by fear or horror.
        6. The rough-and-tumble. Aggressive people like action and adventure. They are physically assertive and often participate in or enjoy playing competitive sports, especially contact sports.
    6. Idiosyncratic
        1. Inner life. Idiosyncratic individuals are tuned in to and sustained by their own feelings and belief systems, whether or not others accept or understand their particular worldview or approach to life.
        2. Own world. They are self-directed and independent, requiring few close relationships.
        3. Own thing. Oblivious to convention, Idiosyncratic individuals create interesting, unusual, often eccentric lifestyles.
        4. Expanded reality. Open to anything, they are interested in the occult, the extrasensory, and the supernatural.
        5. Metaphysics. They are drawn to abstract and speculative thinking.
        6. Outward view. Though they are inner-directed and follow their own hearts and minds, Idiosyncratic men and women are keen observers of others, particularly sensitive to how other people react to them.
    7. Inventive
        1. Status. Individuals of the Inventive personality type are highly competitive in pursuit of success and prestige. They want very much to be outstanding in some way (Riso, 103), to gain recognition, even fame and glory.
        2. Idealized self-image. They develop highly idealized images of themselves with which they identify and which they love. The person is his idealized self and seems to adore it (Glad, 494).
        3. Subdued demeanor. Persons of the Inventive type are energetic, but phlegmatic in temperament. "They can be quiet, rather private, subdued in demeanor, and have artistic interests and aesthetic sensibilities (Riso, 102)."
        4. Attention. Individuals of the Inventive type have a tendency to behave in such a way as to attract attention. "They can be subtle show-offs, but show-offs nonetheless (Riso, 103)."
        5. Openness to culture. The Inventive person has unusual thought processes, values intellectual matters, and judges in unconventional terms. He or she is aesthetically reactive and has a wide range of interests (McCrae and John).
        6. Intelligence. "Intelligence will typically be emphasized in their self-images and social dealings." They put great stock in their ideas and demand that others do likewise (Riso, 103).
        7. Competence. The faith of those of the Inventive type is "in their ability to improvise something, and they display an unusual talent for rising to the expediency of a situation (Keirsey, 184)." Their focus is on competent excellence in performance.
        8. Innovation. The Inventive type maintains an independent view and is "the most reluctant of all the types to do things in a particular manner just because that is the way things always have been done (Keirsey, 183)." They are inventors and innovators.
        9. Cleverness. They are mentally bright and quick-witted. For those of the Inventive type "to be taken in, to be manipulated by another, is humiliating; this offends their joy in being masters of the art of oneupmanship (Keirsey, 185)."
        10. Self-consciousness Persons of the Inventive type look to others for approval (Reich, 47). They are very conscious of how others treat them (Riso, 103) and highly sensitive to criticism (Oldham, 89) and negative evaluation.
    8. Solitary
        1. Solitude. Individuals with the Solitary personality style have small need of companionship and are most comfortable alone.
        2. Independence. They are self-contained and do not require interaction with others in order to enjoy their experiences or to get on in life.
        3. Sangfroid. Solitary men and women are even-tempered, calm, dispassionate, unsentimental, and unflappable.
        4. Stoicism. They display an apparent indifference to pain and pleasure.
        5. Sexual composure. They are not driven by sexual needs. They enjoy sex but will not suffer in its absence.
        6. Feet on the ground. They are unswayed by either praise or criticism and can confidently come to terms with their own behavior.
    9. Leisurely
        1. Inalienable rights. Leisurely men and women believe in their right to enjoy themselves on their own terms in their own time. They value and protect their comfort, their free time, and their individual pursuit of happiness.
        2. Enough is enough. They agree to play by the rules. They deliver what is expected of them and no more. They expect others to recognize and respect that limit.
        3. The right to resist. Leisurely individuals cannot be exploited. They can comfortably resist acceding to demands that they deem unreasonable or above and beyond the call of duty.

    I voted Sensitive, Idiosyncratic, Inventive. The first two I relate strongly with the pinch of third option.

    I chose inventive, self confident, vigilent -- but probably half of them I can say I relate with.

    It's interesting how that website aligns each MBTI type with a personality disorder, and implies that the disorders occur where one's type impairs one's functioning.

    I have a very hard time with such categorical thinking:

    I think it's fake. No one is those things.

    Inventive, solitary, leisurely, serious, self-sacrificing

    Self-sacrificing is almost not on the list.
