What's Your Personality Type?

I had a great deal of trouble choosing between some of the answers so I took it twice, the second time switching all the answers that I had trouble choosing between. I have never gotten the first result (ISFJ) before, although in the past I've scored S or J before. The second result (INTP) is what I have usually gotten on this type of personality test. There was one period in my life where I switched sort of suddenly and radically from T to F, and I thought I was over that, but I think maybe meditation practice has softened me somewhat. I guess that makes me an IXXX. Results, and my talking back to the results, are under the cut.
You Are An ISFJ
The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person... a partner who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut

Analysis:
Wrong: strong need to belong, like cooking, easily devoted to one person (it is easy for me to be devoted but I've never been devoted to only one person), I do special things for my partner (sometimes, but it's not my strong suit or primary love language), I love by taking care of people (ditto), I would make a good interior designer (HAHAHA) or chef, other people see me as dominant
Right: loyal, good listener, good at helping in practical ways, like art and music, prefer structured environment (as long as it is structured in a way I like), complete tasks well and on time, make a good child psychologist (maybe), other people see me as boring and stuck in a rut.


You Are An INTP
The Thinker

You are analytical and logical - and on a quest to learn everything you can.
Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.
Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.
A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.

In love, you are an easy person to fall for. But you're not an easy person to stay in love with.
Although you are quite flexible, you often come off as aloof or argumentative.

At work, you are both a logical and creative thinker. You are great at solving problems.
You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

How you see yourself: Creative, fair, and tough-minded

When other people don't get you, they see you as: arrogant, cold, and robotic


Analysis:
Wrong: pet peeve is trivial chit-chat, easy to fall in love with, flexible, good mathematician, see myself as creative, see myself as tough-minded.
Right: analytical, logical, on a quest to learn, smart, complex, seek intellectual challenges, ignore rules, aloof, argumentative, see myself as fair, people see me as cold.
Don't know: not easy to stay in love with? good professor? people see me as arrogant and robotic?

when I took a version of this given by a PhD in psychology student, I scored ESFJ and that did fit me.

I've drifted to the other side of the I/E scale, tho I'm close to the middle, making me an ISFJ.

I think the first part you posted fits me in some ways, but I've never liked a closed-ended system that has a finite number of boxes to fit in.

I just took the test you linked to above, and it scored me as ISTP, so I think it's best to google Meyers-Briggs and take a more reliable test. it should have at least 50 or even double that to really get at what fits for you.
