INFJ


Hello again! Two posts today? On a Monday?? Can you tell I am being productive?
Today's challenge was to take the Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment. I remember taking this in college for one of my management classes and I got something like 99% introvert. When it was time to share some of our results in class, I did not raise my hand high enough (in true introvert form) and got called out on it in front of the whole class. For my 99% introverted self, talk about embarrassing. Apparently I have come out of my shell a little bit since then as I only scored 68% introvert this time ;)

As I read the profile for someone who identifies as INFJ (Introvert, iNtuition, Feeling, Judging), I definitely felt as if I was reading about myself. I thought I would just highlight some of the points that I most closely relate to. All analysis taken from here.

Though affable and sympathetic to most, INFJs are selective about their friends.

 INFJs have a knack for fluency in language and facility in communication. In addition, nonverbal sensitivity enables the INFJ to know and be known by others intimately. 

 ...find themselves caught between the desire to express their wealth of feelings and moral conclusions about the actions and attitudes of others.

 ...distancing is merely an indication that the seer is hard at work and focusing energy into this less efficient tertiary function.

 The INFJ under stress may fall prey to various forms of immediate gratification.
  
Pretty cool how such a short quiz can sometimes be so accurate!
Some famous INJFs: Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Thomas Jefferson.

What are your letters??

I'm also a introvert! When I took this test last summer for a new job, I was only about 10 percent introverted, but now I'm up to 33. Wonder how that happened?

Man, the INFJs are coming out the woodwork with Jenni's prompt today! I'm so excited, too, because I find INFJs FASCINATING! (I'm an ENFP!)

And man, that sucks about your teacher forcing you to share your results in front of the whole class. But way to come more out of your shell! Woohoo! :)
