Sexual Preference, Your Personalty, And Other Nonsense
I found a fun article about how your Myers-Briggs personality influences your sexual preferences. Do you like anal? Sex toys? Multiple partners? Now, there’s a handy test to help you find out how wrong you are about what you thought was your sex life.
You may read about the survey here at Metro:
It’s total nonsense but amusing nonetheless. I’ve taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Test before. I always end up INTJ – Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging. With an emphasis on Turbulent rather than Assertive.
I’m in good company when it comes to writers. Isaac Asimov, Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath, Emily Bronte and Sun Tzu are INTJs. There are even INTJ fictional characters including Sherlock Holmes, Professor Moriarty, Hannibal Lecter, Walter White, Gus Fring (what’s with all the criminal masterminds?) and Victor Frankenstein. I like how Holmes and Moriarty are both INTJs. Lecter and Agent Clarice Starling are also INTJs. Nice juxtaposition, like a yin/yang of cold and driven people.
I also come very close to the following:
INTP – Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Perceiving
INFJ – Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging
INFP – Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving
The difference between T/F and P/J is nearly 50% in my case. I break even enough to consider them.
INTJ is The Architect, the rarest of the results (2% of the population), especially when it comes to women. Only 0.8% of women are Architects.
According to this new sexual preferences/Myers-Briggs study, I supposedly love doggy style. I don’t. It’s too impersonal. I don’t like staring at the headboard while my man bangs away. It’s also too hard on my knees.
I also don’t like cowgirl, which I believe is another preference for INTJs. This may sound strange, but I don’t like being on top because I get cold. It’s also hard on my knees. I like to be buried under the blankets while I make love. I stay warm that way. I also feel overexposed when on top. It makes me feel very uncomfortable and vulnerable. I do like side-to-side. That works well for both of us.
If I go by my other possible test results, I have the lowest average number of sex partners (ha!). I counted my lovers and they came out to just over a dozen. I came of age in the go-go 1980s so that number may be considered low for that era. Heh heh. I also supposedly would masturbate the least. Not a chance. I love my sex toys. I used to test them and write reviews. Companies would mail them to me for free. I got some nice ones, too – JimmyJane and Lelo. They can cost in the hundreds. I have my favorites and I use them.
According to INFP, I’m difficult to satisfy in bed and am most likely to be mistaken about what I like in bed. That one is close enough to being true, although I don’t know if the study means I don’t know what I want or if it means my partners didn’t know what I wanted. The former is not true at all. The latter has certainly been true. My past lovers occasionally not so much didn’t know but didn’t care what I wanted. I wrote them off fast enough.
Here are the categories for the Myers-Briggs sexual preferences survey. Are you a match or did you laugh your ass off? Me? I laughed.
Logistician (ISTJ) – least likely to share what they want in bed
Advocate (INFJ) – masturbates the least
Architect (INTJ) – loves doggy style
Protagonist (ENFJ) – second most willing to use sex toys
Virtuoso (ISTP) – most willing to have a threesome and is submissive in bed
Consul (ESFJ) – will likely decline threesomes and anal sex
Mediator (INFP) – difficult to satisfy in bed and most likely to be mistaken about what they like in bed
Entertainer (ESFP) – least likely to experiment with someone of the same gender
Campaigner (ENFP) – most likely to experiment with someone of the same gender Entrepreneur (ESTP) – doesn’t really fancy using sex toys and easy to please in bed
Executive (ESTJ) – has the highest average number of lovers and is most satisfied sexually
Commander (ENTJ) – most willing to use sex toys, likes role play and bondage, and very dominant
Logician (INTP ) – lowest average number of sex partners
Defender (ISFJ) – least adventurous in bed
Debater (ENTP) – most willing to have anal sex
Adventurer (ISFP) – second most likely to be mistaken about what they like in bed
