Last week I took one of the free online Myers Briggs personality tests. I got the result INFJ (The Counselor). I went down the Pinterest rabbit hole after that, finding one post after another that “so perfectly” described me. I retook it today and while I got INFJ once again, I also had “VERY GOOD MATCH” with ISFJ and “GOOD MATCH” with INFP
Is this an absolutely accurate science? No, but I found the descriptions to be fairly on point with my own characteristics. I like the following website because it gives the personality type as well as a brief explanation of the results.
Mine, for example breaks down as follows:
- 65% Introverted, 35% Extroverted (Engergized by time alone v. Energized by time with others)
- 47% Sensing, 53% Intuition (Facts/Details v. Creative, Interpretive)
- 28% Thinking, 72% Feeling (Head v. Heart)
- 45% Perceiving, 55% Judging (Relaxed, spontaneous v. Orderly, scheduled)
If any of you are so inclined and love finding out more about what makes us tick, I suggest taking the test and seeing if you think the results are accurate for you. I would love to hear your thoughts!
Thanks for reading!
