      Thumbs up

      EDIT: moved up from below...

      The results from two previous posts have been collated.
      http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/index.php?...20test&st=0
      http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/inde...showtopic=4326

      Both posts asked participants to fill out an on-line Myers-Briggs personality test.
      This was the test used (takes 5 minutes max.):
      http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes...win/JTypes2.asp

      These are the collated results from post 1:
      ENFP, INTJ, INFP, ENFP, INFP, INTJ, INFJ, ESFP, INTP, INFJ, ENFP, INTJ, INFJ, ISFP, INTJ, INTP, INFP, ENTP, ENFJ, INFP, INTJ, INTP, ENFP, ENTP, ENFP, INTJ, ENTP, ENFP,INFJ

      and the results from post 2:
      INTP, ISFJ, ENFP, INFJ, ISTP, INTP, ENFJ, INFJ, INTP, INTJ, ENFP, ENTP, INTJ, INTJ, INTP, INTP, INTJ, INFJ,
      INFJ, INTP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ, ENFJ, ENTP, INTP, INTP, ISTJ, INTJ, ISFJ, INTP, INFJ, ENTP, INFJ, ISFP, INFP, ISFP, INTP

      new results:
      INFJ, ISTJ, INTJ, ISTP, INFP

      total of 72 responses
      E(extrovert) 18 (25%) I(introvert) 54 (75%)
      S(sensing) 10 (14%) N(intuitive) 62 (86%)
      T(thinking) 35 (49%) F(feeling) 37 (51%)
      J(judging) 32 (44%) P(perceiving) 41 (56%)

      So by type - rounded to nearest 0.5% (top 5 in blue):
      type, # of repondents, % of respondents, title of type, % in general pop. (US)

      ENFP 7 (10 %) Champion 8.62
      ENFJ 3 (4 %) Teacher 7.52
      ENTP 5 (7%) Inventor 2.31
      ENTJ 0 (0%) Fieldmarshal 3.49

      ESFP 2 (3%) Performer 4.68
      ESFJ 0 (0%) Provider 12.16
      ESTP 1 (1.5%) Promoter 2.68
      ESTJ 0 (0%) Supervisor 11.59

      INFP 7 (10%) Healer 6.64
      INFJ 12 (17%) Counselor 7.14
      INTP 13 (18%) Architect 3.01
      INTJ 12 (17%) Mastermind 5.20

      ISFP 3 (4%) Composer 2.86
      ISFJ 3 (4%) Protector 9.45
      ISTP 2 (3%) Operator 2.09
      ISTJ 2 (3%) Inspector 10.56

      No information included (yet?!&#33 on the degree of lucidity or whether natural or learnt. So if any LDers want to have a go, could they please also give some indication of lucid ability.

      My personality type is: ENFP (strongly N, weakly E)

      Natural or Learnt? [N/L]:
      N
      Natural LDer from early childhood who has improved through practice and study.

      Frequency
      [1-5 /night = 1, 1-5 /week = 2, 1-5 /month = 3, 1-5/year = 4]:

      2
      (1-3 times per week without trying, 1-3+ per night when regularly reading DV(thanks folks&#33 and doing various exercises or WILDing.)

      Perceived Duration
      [10+ minutes = 1, 1-10 minutes = 2, 1-60 seconds = 3]:

      2
      (1-10mins, often longer, and occassionally it seems like its all night.)

      Control
      [1 = god-like total; 2 = control over DCs, and dream world with abilities such as telekinesis, teleport; 3 = full awarness of dream, full control of self, including flying etc; 4 = aware of dreaming, some control of self ]:

      2
      (usually just of myself, but sometimes god-like & total - at least as much as my creativity allows)


      Thanks in Advance

      Speculation only - but I think you'll find an adventurous streak among LDers - those interested in the arts, (I'm a musician and composer,) those who enjoy pushing the envelope to experience new things, and those who are fascinated with spiritual/paranormal experiences.

      The common trait would be an adventurous curiosity, if you were to try boiling it down.

      It will be fascinating to see what others come up with.

      That is probably a very good assumption.

      I am not very creative, however I am not very good at lucid dreaming either! But I would like to be. Maybe it will work the other way and make me more creative.

      I did that Minnesota personality test one time but I can't really remember the results. All I remember was being introverted rather than extroverted, but I knew that already.

      I do think that there is a certain personality type that can be associated with lucid dreaming. Of coarse there are always the many variables to account for.
      If you separate lucid dreamers into at least two categories ~(could be many)
      • Those who have naturally experienced lucid dreaming.
      • Those who have sought out lucid dreaming.
      I think the ladder has to hurdle our preconceived thought process's. Open mindedness to over come our conditioning as a developed brain.
      There is a good possibility that in the end the both would obtain the same attributes. I will go out on a limb and even mention that perhaps lucid dreamers are more oriented, right brain hemisphere thinkers.

      I conducted a right and left hand study to try and do just that. It has been thought that more creative, artistic people are left handed. The results were not convincing of that.

      I would also like to give a small example that we all can see. A person who may be more right hemisphere oriented is often more gifted in a linear, structured thought process. Math skills verbal and social skills etc..
      If you take notice in our own Forum. Many members who reside in the extended discussion and more debatable Forums do not frequent as often take part in the more lucid dreaming aspects of Dream Views.
      Given the nature of many of the topics you can notice the large difference between topics associated within the Artist's Corner compared to that of the Extended discussion, philosophy, Religion and Spirituality Forums.

      I don't think lucid dreamers have to fit one specific personality, although I do think certain personalities are more adapted to pick up lucid dreaming more easily. The way I feel, the only trait a person really needs is open-mindedness, to accept the "differentness" of lucid dreaming. Myself, I think I pretty much fit into pj's "adventurous curiosity" personality, but I also am pretty open-minded.

      I think I read that 1 in 5 (20%) people experience a lucid dream sometime during their life, although I don't know how many of those actually try to.

      On th epolticial side of things I'll think you'll find a great deal of liberals,
      and also a lot of people who are not religious but slightly spiritual,
      in the sense that they meditate and are rather hmm peaceful and content?
      obviously there will be a great deal of variation with some people

      I have found that compared to other lucid dreaming forums this forum contains and allows more degrees of skepticism, which in my eyes is a good thing,

      I'm ISTJ if I remember it well and strong introvert and thinking. I can't find the actual results (as there are on my HDD and I don't have access to it - but I will post them if I find them).


      My personality type is: ISTJ
      Natural or Learnt? Natural LDer from early childhood.
      Frequency: I'm almost everytime, but I take full control only when I want to have one and that is not periodic.
      Perceived Duration: no idea as my dreams take much longer than just hours or minutes.
      Control: full control if LD is induced. otherwise the level of control changes. usually I'm in full control of myself and I can slightly change the rest. still I have the ability restart a dream.
      Natural LDer who can't say her level of lucid ability

      I'm an INFJ.

      11 38 75 11 %

      My personality type is: INFJ
      Natural or Learnt? more learnt than natural with a few unknowing instances in childhood
      Frequency: <2 per month w/o trying; <5 per month when focused
      Perceived Duration: close to 5 minutes max
      Control: usually have to state what I want before going to sleep in order to work right; otherwise, I mindlessly do things.

      I&#39;m more creative than logical.
      Mathematics and how the world works has never interested me.
      Music and philosophy have always been my favorite hobbies.

      I guess I&#39;m right-brained. :yumdumdoodledum:

      I&#39;ve just updated the totals including the recent results (in first post).

      It would still be very interesting to check which of the original results were from lucid dreamers, natural or learnt.
      One day I&#39;ll trawl through the posts for clues... or PM if you know.
      Perosnality traits change over time - so feel free to do the test again&#33;

      The most obvious patterns so far are that most repsondants are Intuitive Introverts, and that the three most popular types are so much more frequent than found in the general population.

      INFJ 12 (17%) Counselor 7.14
      INTP 13 (18%) Architect 3.01
      INTJ 12 (17%) Mastermind 5.20

      I&#39;ll keep updating from time to time as new data arrives.

      Natural or Learnt? [N/L]:
      Learnt, but I recently discovered that my mother was a natural lucid dreamer as a kid, so heritage might have something to do with my ability.

      Frequency
      [1-5 /night = 1, 1-5 /week = 2, 1-5 /month = 3, 1-5/year = 4]:

      3 (1-5 a month)

      Perceived Duration
      [10+ minutes = 1, 1-10 minutes = 2, 1-60 seconds = 3]:
      2 (1-10mins)

      Control
      [1 = god-like total; 2 = control over DCs, and dream world with abilities such as telekinesis, teleport; 3 = full awarness of dream, full control of self, including flying etc; 4 = aware of dreaming, some control of self ]:

      4 (Aware of dreaming, but little control)

      Hmm, I&#39;m not sure what to post here. I think mostly no. I think the only thing we have in common is the desire for LD&#39;s for whatever reason you may have. We want the ability to control a universe maybe.

      Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
      It isn't more complicated that that.
      It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
      without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

      I really don't feel like taking the test again so I don't have the percents. But we had to take this exact same test for my career readiness class. I took it two times and each time got INTJ... Mastermind, ha, then why do I feel as smart as a fucking happy meal... It does seem that most people here Introverted Intuitive. Which seems to make sense to me since lucid dreaming is definately a more introverted experience...
