Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account – click “click to view” under “You” and “self-awareness and personal growth.” You can even google your type and find more info on it!)
I am so glad this is a topic for Blogtember! Mostly because I had already started a post about introverts vs extroverts. Because it is all the rage in the blogging world right now. And I found this article that pretty much sums it all up! Because even though the personality test says I’m an introvert, I have never really fully identified with either side. I consider myself a mix. Like most people.
Anywho! Back to the results. I am an INFJ. Introvert // Intuitive // Feeling //Judging [no surprise on that last one.]
Highlights for those who don’t care to read the whole thing:
- Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types. [I’m rare. Treasure me.]
- INFJs have uncanny insight into people and situations. They get “feelings” about things and intuitively understand them. [All. The. Time.]
- Because the INFJ has such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in an INFJ stubbornness and tendency to ignore other people’s opinions. They believe that they’re right. [I’m not stubborn…just ask my husband. :P]
- INFJ is a natural nurturer; patient, devoted and protective. They make loving parents and usually have strong bonds with their offspring. [Avery is so lucky to have me!]
- INFJs should be careful to avoid “overheating” as their zeal and determination can sometimes get out of hand. As introverts, INFJs need to have some “alone time” every once in a while or otherwise their internal energy reserves will get depleted really quickly. If this happens, the INFJ may surprise everybody around them by withdrawing from all their activities for a while – and since other people usually see INFJs as extroverts, this can leave them both surprised and concerned. [Gotta keep ’em guessing!]
I think that last point is probably why I have never really identified with introverts or extroverts. I guess overall I am just a confusing person! My personality type says so!
