What Type Of Personality Are You?

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

mondays are garbage.
Yesterday was intense.

After being away from my "home office" for about five days I came home to a shit storm of emails, posts that need to be written, and orders to fulfill.

Lots and lots of t-shirt orders. As I write this I realize it sounds like a gross humble brag and it's not meant that way, I'm just beyond thrilled to see this shirt selling like it is- even if it means packing shirts until 1 a.m. to play catch up.

Sometime around 1:30 I stopped packing and allowed myself some internet free time to wind down. Does anyone else do this? When you just let your searches go absolutely wild? I'll click on any trashy article that my heart desires until I'm so lost in the internet rabbit hole I don't even know where I started.

Last night I ended up on a personality test. I do these from time to time when I feel like I need a computer to remind me who I am... jk. But maybe not. I took the one found here, but there's obviously hundreds out there.

And so last night at 2 a.m I learned that I am:

*delaying tasks I should be doing to take stupid personality tasks.
*will do absolutely anything to put off writing my script.
*great at wasting time.

But seriously, I got INFP-A.
Which means I am :
Introverted: 69%, Intuitive: 89%, Feeling: 59%, Prospecting: 60%, Assertive: 55%

I'm not completely sure what those numbers mean, but there were a few things the results said that were eerily close to home.

"INFPs listen to many, but talk to few." Definitely.

Strengths: Often creative, energetic, flexible, dedicated, open minded, and very passionate.
well thanks!

Weaknesses: Too idealistic, not practical, difficult to get to know, too altruistic, takes things too personally....
what's that supposed to mean!?!

And then there was this:

"INFPs will often focus their attention on a single worthy cause, but if they're not careful they can become overwhelmed by all the bad in the world that they can’t fix."

That sounds dramatic. But I know exactly what that line means. I have unrealistic expectations for the world and don't understand why we can't stop ABUSING ANIMALS. And kids. And people in general. But mostly dogs. That's my "single worthy cause." It's what keeps me awake at night and makes me cry for animals I've never met.

But don't worry, INFPs bounce back because we are very optimistic. Unrealistically optimistic sometimes, apparently. Me? Never. Lols.

And even though I have "trouble making friends" (the test actually said this, talk about feeling like a loser) the friends I do make, I keep forever. You hear that, friends? You're stuck with me FOREVER.

Career paths I should choose: probably an author or a blogger because I "excel in hermit mode." i.e. I'm energized by being alone and can feel lethargic or uninterested when surrounded by people I don't know.

Basically I just learned that I'm a big old loser. High school makes so much more sense to me now.

The test also said that INFPs sometimes get so lost in their work they neglect basic upkeep of themselves and pretty much walk around looking like garbage people and don't realize it and/or care. If you follow me on snap you know this is definitely NOT TRUE. I take pride in looking nice every day.

And this is another post brought to you by 3 a.m. internet searching/insomnia. If you've taken a test like this, what were your results? Were they accurate for you? Do tell, I'm a great listener and want to know.

  1. Without taking this test yet, I can guarantee I wld get the same result. I have been known to close myself in my bedroom sobbing hysterically over animal abuse cases. And excel in hermit mode. And look like a garbage person RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND. AND IM AT WORK.

    I will take this test later just to confirm. Who am I kidding, I'll probably do it now because I am great at wasting time. SEE WHAT I MEAN??!

    1. I just did it. and I got (INFP-t). Our only diff - instead of Assertive like you, I got Turbulent. HA!

      INFP Personality (“The Mediator”)

      INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.

  2. I am also an INFP! I took the test again and got INFP-T, Mediator. Definitely spot on! Procrastination, crying over human rights abuses (and animals), working in said field, seemingly shy/reserved, creative, and currently in hermit mode after being spread to thin. It must be a common personality type for bloggers/blog stalkers...

  3. I got ISFJ-A.

    "ISFJs are true altruists, meeting kindness with kindness-in-excess and engaging the work and people they believe in with enthusiasm and generosity."

  4. INFJ-t.

    The INFJ personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As Diplomats (NF), they have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is the accompanying Judging (J) trait – INFJs are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.

    Strengths- creative, insightful, determined, altruistic

    Weaknesses- sensitive, extremely private, burnt out easily, perfectionist ----oh yeah

  5. I'm very surprised with my results! I've always considered myself an introvert but according to the test I'm 87% extraverted! I'm also 68% intuitive, 75% feeling, 70% prospecting, and 66% turbulent. I'm an ENFP-T ("The Campaigner")

    "The ENFP personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike Explorers, they are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Charming, independent, energetic and compassionate, the 7% of the population that they comprise can certainly be felt in any crowd."

    Pretty cool! Thanks for sharing!

  6. INFP-t here too... The Mediator "INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine.

AKA sensitive and just want to smooth things over....

  7. Oh I took this test a long time ago and have no idea what I was, but I know I'm an introvert and sensitive and prefers to write my feelings instead of speaking them lol. (duh blogging.) I just started reading this book, I'm telling everyone about it, it's called "Quiet" - the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking. It's so good. Just an FYI people!

  8. We took the myers-brigg in my psych class senior year of HS, but it's been so long I had forgotten my results! ha. This one says I'm INFJ-T, which sounds familiar & when I was reading about it I found myself nodding, "yes yes me." Turns out we make up less than 1% of the population... look ma, I'm unique!

  9. I took this test recently and got INFJ-T (the Advocate). Mine was pretty spot on. I am a rare personality that is almost 1/2 introverted and 1/2 extroverted. I love being in groups and with friends, but I also love to go to the movies by myself where no one can talk to me... or touch me...I have a 6 year old.

  10. I'm pretty sure if I took this test I would get pretty much the same result. Except that the things you said aren't true about you are pretty much totally true about me...Oops.

  11. My result was ENFP-A, which surprises me a little bit. It seems that I get a different result every time that I take this test.

  13. Personality tests are so on point. I took a few different ones online to make sure it was correct ... 50/50 of two different personalities (one letter difference) but both described me.
