Actually the last time I took that test, it called me an INTJ too. 

Most likely you see the influence of analytic philosophy on my intellectual life in recent years. After ignoring the analytics all my life (they looked so darned boring, and who cares about language, logic, meaning and reality anyway?) I finally took the plunge and spent the last year or two reading and surveying thinkers like Frege, Wittgenstein, Russell, Moore and others. And yes Searle also hails from that tradition. 

The analytics tend to value reality and common sense over lofty and often on close analysis meaningless abstractions. I no longer care to debate how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. You'll have to show me the angels first! :)
