Suite of sixteen

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (and the similar Keirsey Temperament Sorter) assigns one of two values to each of four characteristics, resulting in 16 possible, um, types. Apparently each of them has a prayer:

MBTI Prayers

This particular matrix has been kicking around for a couple of years now in various forms; I’ve forgotten where I found it last month. My apologies to whoever originated it.

    [...] Dustbury has a nice little matrix of prayers customized to fit an individual’s Meyers Brigg Personality Type. [...]

    There’s also the Brutally Honest Personality Test (Meyers–Briggs with insults for each personality type). I turned out to be on the border between Crackpot (INTJ) and Loser (INTP).

    I’m an ISTP, and I totally agree with the prayer listed for my type. Which one are you, Charles? I’z curious.

    I took the Keirsey test back in 2001, and it ruled me INTJ. I duly reported about it here:

    [S]elf-confidence is not by any means my strongest suit, though it varies with my level of expertise in the realm of the moment – but by and large, the guy that wants solutions, dammit, and doesn’t much care who gets the credit for them, is pretty much the same guy who wanders around in my Reeboks.

    Yes, I wore Reeboks back then. A lot can happen in a decade.

    INFJ here. And yeah, the prayer pretty much fits. (Though an alternate would be, “Grant me enough time to take care of all the things I have decreed I must take care of, because other people can’t seem to be troubled to do them.”)
