Title: POIS by personality type
Post by: kurtosis on August 21, 2012, 02:30:28 PM
I'm interested because I'm wondering whether there's any correlation between our personality types, the relative dopamine versus acetyl-choline neurotransmitter dominance and POIS.  I'm an INTJ and I'm wondering if most of us fall into *NT* types.

You can do the test here http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp
if you're interested.

Should I answer as if I were in POIS or out of it? Because the answers will not be the same. My own personality test: Mr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hide.

hhmm, my personality doesn't change when in POIS. I'm just "me" but a bit frustrated. I'd suggest just doing the personality type survey, answering how you think you are most of the time and seeing what answer it produces.

I'm an INFP, but I think i've got some INTP attributes too, especially as I have aged

It gave me a score of ISTJ. I had POIS while trying it, but my answers would be the same without POIS.

INTP
Pretty close to an INTP myself, just a bit more J than P apparently. Guess that's why I'm grumpy sometimes. I blame the parents :)

Anyway that's another one for the Introverted iNtuition camp. Only 5 responders so far so there's not much we can learn yet.

They say that us INTJs are fairly rare! 4%.

Heck, we should be able to INTUIT the rest.

Starsky, I have to worry about the Jeckyl/Hyde effect as well, lol. My personality defiantly varies w/ extreme POIS symptoms.  Interesting little test, I feel as thought POIS has defiantly shaped and changed my personality over the years forcing me to be more creative and accepting, while constantly searching for clarity objectivity in the world. Scored INTJ.

Another INTJ. Same as Daveman & me. Welcome to the "club" :)

Very small sample so far but it's interesting that we're 60% NT's (which are rare personality types in the overall population) and 90% IN's. If we had more responses, we could say that there's a tendency for POIS sufferers who identify themselves as such to be IN's or intuitive introverts. Interesting.

The only thing different in our Myers-Briggs personality type is the I-E :)

INTPs-ENTPs use the same cognitive functions but in a different order.

INTJ.  No question about it. Had this test before.

I am a Subject Matter Expert at a large aerospace company. 

Quite a balancing act with this disease. 

We also need to consider that certain personalities types are more likely to use a medium like this. So the distribution of POIS in this forum is also influenced by how approach problem solving.

I agree that we can't conclude only from this poll that introverts are more likely to have POIS..

BUT.. if there is a likelihood for some kind of POIS to be more likely for introverts (subgroup), maybe it's related to acetylcholine.
https://www.google.com/search?q=acetylcholine+introversion

^ those Google hits claim introverts brain is more based on acetylcholine than on dopamine.. (simplified terms..)

EDIT: Ooops, this is what kurtosis asked in the initial poll post  :D

I think this might say a lot about which personality types participate in online forums and/or try to figure out impossibly complex issues like POIS. INTJ...  ;)
