This may come across as weird to some of you and I'm sorry. I've been into typing for quite a while and I've found that sometimes, when one is stuck, it helps to type a character before continuing. And taking any kind of a test on your character's behalf is fun. What is personality typing? Determining what cognitive functions (for Jungian type tests - i.e. Myers-Briggs, Keirsey, some aspects of Big Five, 16 Personalities, Socionics) the person is using and in which order; determining a bunch of factors that makes you tick (Enneagram, some aspects of Big Five, most other tests) and it's handy for writers as much as it's handy for psychologists, teachers, HR folk and the like. The accuracy of tests may or may not depend on the taker's sincerity, same for repeated different results. One has to know what they're responding. So, tell me about typing your characters? Have you ever done so? Have you had a sage who is INFJ, an action hero who is ESTP, an evil ENTJ/INTJ, and so on? Or did your characters go far past these stereotypes?

So, did you type your characters? How about ECs? What makes them tick? How does your type influence what you're writing? Let's start the discussion!
