INFP

Myers Briggs, have you heard of it? It’s a personality test of sorts. I took the online version and it was very accurate as to what my personality is. I have sent the test to the staff here at the church so that we can know what everybody’s personalities are, and how we could best work together. I haven’t gotten any responses yet, but I think that it will help others and myself. I’ll keep you updated

By the title you can tell I’m an INFP, let me break that down for you:

Introverted–Applies to the way we interact with the world. Introverts are people whose thoughts and ideas are drawn inward. This type scan the external environment and make evaluations based on their inner ideas and mental concepts. They derive their energies from these inner ideas. It is important for them to take time to study and reflect on a subject to get the right idea, before taking action.

iNtuitive–Applies to the way we take in information. Intuitive types look for the possibilities in life. What is possible is always in front of them, pulling at them like a magnet. Intuitive types are attracted to fantasy, fiction, and the future. They may enjoy figuring out how things work just for the sheer pleasure of doing so.

Feeling–Applies to the way we come to decisions. Feeling types make decisions based on how others feel. They are empathetic and sympathetic to others needs. This type puts themselves out for others, putting others needs above those of their own. Feeling types value and almost insist on others living in harmony.

Perceiving–Applies to the way we structure our lives. Perceptive types put much value on the open ended. They do not like to come to a conclusion unless forced to and then may still be uncomfortable with its closure. Being aware of how many factors are involved and how much is still unknown, they are terrified at making a rash decision. They hope they can solve a problem simply by understanding it better, by seeing it from all sides and eventually being able to see the thing to do. They love to explore the unknown. They don’t like to be pinned down, to plan a task, to make definite statements.

It’s amazing to me that one can be read by answering as little as 80 questions. I am also amazed at how accurate the synopsis is. All of this information and more can be found all over the internet. I would challenge you to take the test and see if it read you right too. Here are the links to the test as well as explanations.
