Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm INFJ - but an astounding moderate one at that (Introverted 33, Intuitive 6, Feeling 38, Judging 1).

Apparently this makes me a Counselor type. Which I would find flattering.

Keirsey Temperament Website: The 4 Temperaments

The Counselor Idealists are abstract in thought and speech, cooperative in reaching their goals, and enterprising and attentive in their interpersonal roles. Counselors focus on human potentials, think in terms of ethical values, and come easily to decisions. The small number of this type (little more than 2 percent) is regrettable, since Counselors have an unusually strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others and genuinely enjoy helping their companions. Although Counsleors tend to be private, sensitive people, and are not generally visible leaders, they nevertheless work quite intensely with those close to them, quietly exerting their influence behind the scenes with their families, friends, and colleagues. This type has great depth of personality; they are themselves complicated, and can understand and deal with complex issues and people.

BTW, if there will be a B-M compass, I think everyone should do the same test. I just googled my way to one.

IMHO, it has the same scientific validity as the following which describes perfectly my personality - NOT!:

Astrological Character profile- Cancer

You are innately attached to your family and are patriotic, maternal and imaginative. Although quiet, conscientious and receptive, you are deeply concerned with what others think of you. You need to feel needed, and through genuine concern for humanity you can overcome your natural shyness. You like to cook and entertain, and you are an avid collector. When necessary you can be manipulative to achieve your aim, which is emotional security. You need a quiet place for retreat, since you respond so strongly to influences in your environment.

You are domestic by nature and from here comes your protective instincts... Your temper is uneven; you flare up quickly but soon forget the cause of your outburst. You often assert your 'me first' tendencies.

You are very emotional and you can be swayed too easily by your senses. Arguments arouse your stubbornness because once you make up your mind you stick to your decision. Impressionable and changeable, you are sensitive to your surroundings; kindness and praise are the best ways to get through to you... you might have trouble thinking objectively, since your emotions are always involved. This could lead to feeling sorry for yourself...

I worked my way through the other personality types and I too was reminded of *cough * astrology...
