Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

In this moment I feel like this is a sailing race. The INTP's just took the lead. lol

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

I am INFJ , not a big surprise if you've read any of my compassionate posts. I wish I were able to articulate better because perhaps I'd be more persuasive.
I've taken the test at least 5x's over decades and I always land the same score within a few points.
That being said, I also scored very high on an aptitude test as being "Highly mechanically inclined" when I was 12. And I am. I've fixed and maintained my house and vehicles, I can paint, turn a screw driver or ratchet in my right or left hand ( I switch off when one gets tired). I also have held jobs in mostly male dominated fields throughout my life. So I believe that career/life choices are made by a combination of aptitude and personality traits'. We're all quite unique and square pegs don't often fit into round holes

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

Lots of WTF, FOMO and YOLO are vital for a true small-yacht sailor.

And a good dose of FML helps you get motivated to buy a boat in the first place.

Cheers, Graeme

Life doesn't begin until you've met your first serious girlfriend.

Ha, reminds me of my 1st wife. As a girlfriend she was great fun. Got married, and she changed dramatically..."who the hell are you and what did you do with my GF?". Very brief marriage.

sad. My 'girlfriend' is and has always been my best friend since I was 19. Been married 35 years now and I'd still say she's my best friend.

(maybe because no one else will put up with me )

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

ESTJ here, and I'm assuming there's more of us out there than are represented here. Although I can't see poll from here.

My wife of 22 years is an INFJ. I'm surprised to see at least a couple here, Gada and Makai.

The Meyers Briggs really does neatly package personality types, but as others have pointed out, there is some amount of fluidity there. In particular, I'm labeled an extrovert, but I'm far from a perennial extrovert. I also went through expensive, lengthy leadership training with various instruments (like MBTI)used throughout the process. We are all somewhere along a continuum, as far as our preference for being with others or alone, or quiet activities or group ones. I'm teetering right on the edge, and in fact have spent many weeks and thousands of miles singlehanding and don't get lonely. But I do pretty well in groups and can talk a lot. 25 years of meditation - 14 hours a day when I was 20 - creates a bit of a buffer with the personality traits I think. That speaks well of mindfulness I guess, the ability to not entirely follow our natural tendencies.

Hilarious to read the responses from people new to MBTI. Funny stuff.

So anyway, I'm the manager and captain type, and I feel like there's a lot of me running boats. Maybe not as much in small boats cruising for fun? My idea of perfect is a long passage alone, wife or friends meet me in port, and then, well, I guess it's true I'm gonna meet a bunch more people in port and speak to them in their language most likely. And translate for my wife, unless she's off doing yoga or looking at something small and beautiful that I'd need her to point out, as I briskly move to my next destination

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

ENTJ and the description pretty much fits. For what its worth, also a Pieces and Monkey (Chinese), which aren't far off the mark. Interesting poll. Which I had tested my two previous wives! lol
