Hi folks. I am confused about the new option about personality type. I have completed the questionnaire about this, and my result was INFP...however, how do I use that information to decide which sea creature I am? When I started the questionnaire I read that upon completion my type would show in my profile. Maybe I am misunderstanding something? Thank you very much!

Dear Moderator,
Thank you very much. I thought I was missing something or my blonde roots were showing. I was under the assumption that by answering the personality quiz questions, I would automatically be assigned a sea creature. Thanks again!

yes, i too assumed exactly that. That once I did that REALLY ANNOYING AND STUPID personality test my effort would be rewarded with a fish personality. no such luck.

I'll be nice and not complain that Jung never intended his personality types to be perverted by Myers & Briggs.

me too - and i am definitely a brunette! lol

in edit profile section you can choose your fish personlity - so when you see the link for testing your personlity type - you would assume that's what it is referring to.

maybe there should be some definitions (just one-liners would do) written for the fish personlaities

Is the sea creature more of a label than a personality trait?

I chose starfish because it sounded colourful and bright and the sort of personality I show to the world.

personally i think little descriptions of the personalities are a great idea! i took the quiz too and was disappointed by no suggested fish personality. i think something needs to be added there!

Finally, the forum I've been looking for

I have had the same question about the fish thingy. I think it falls in the same category as dreams, where dreams can only be interpreted by the person who had the dream, not by some psychologist or psychic guru. Perhaps thats why no definitions are attached, to make a conversation piece or in other words , to help spark up a conversation other than "Hows the weather there?", instead "Why that particular fish?". There is no denying that everyone is different, even by one degree and that is why the fishies are there just to incite curiosity on the person looking at your profile ; )

I think the Personality and Compatibility tests do enough to give the searcher an idea about who you are. The fish is to fill in any gaps the Personality and Compatibility tests missed about you. In fact, both of those tests do warn that their results are not entirely accurate, but as close as possible in describing you. Any two people can pick the same fish but have a different interpretation, which is why there are people that will find you either attractive or not even though they are looking at the same person.

This is the most logical explanation I can think of about the personality fishies

I believe the 'fish personality' was created as a fun option for a conversation starter.

I did a google search and most didn't get past one click. I chose big mouth bass because it appealed to me on a couple of levels.

I took the personality quiz and got the "wrong" type and wish to delete it from the site. According to this site, I am an INTJ but I am really an INTP, the latter of which is the type I've scored every time I've taken the quiz, even just months ago.

So, is there a way to retake/remove my current INTJ?

You can choose to have some fun with the Fish Personalities, or not.

For instance, with my username I, naturally, chose the clownfish.

I found a site that does fish quizzes if you can't figure out which one you would want to be. This one is pretty good:

played the fish game.....eeeeek turns out im a hammerhead shark

As an extremely adapted predator, you use your oddly shaped head to increase your ability to find prey. Your eyes and nostrils are located on both ends of your hammer shaped head. Your vertebrae are especially designed for quick turns and maneuvering. Ranging in size from 3 feet to 20 feet long, you can weigh up to 1,000lbs. You feed on fish, crustaceans and especially enjoy eating rays. You prefer warm temperate and tropical water, and can be found swimming along coastlines and continental shelves in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Mediterranean and Black Seas. You may even catch a tan while swimming in shallow waters. During the day you often swim in large schools, sometimes containing more than 100 fellow hammerheads, but prefer to hunt alone at night.

As true with most shark species, you are in danger of becoming extinct. Highly sought after, your fins are considered an expensive delicacy (used to make shark fin soup), your liver oil is often used to make vitamins, and your skin is use to make leather. While people are not legally permitted to catch you, you are often caught by longlines and driftnets, and rarely make it out alive.

Check this web site for your fish personality.

After you take this quiz you will know what kind of fish you are.

I dunno, the personality test was fun to answer but, my reason for takin' it was to be assigned a fish species. :-P

Hmm, which fish should be added to the list?

The mandatory personality tests state - This test was created by the world’s foremost team of academic psychologists who specialize in personality testing. = Psychometric tests. - I think the PoF mandatory tests are an insult to our intelligence and the fish personalty tests are a waste of time even thinking about.

On joining PoF IMO we should all have the right to opt out.
