Adventures in Life: A Personality Tests

Happy Monday! Today I'm participating in Blogtember again! Here is the topic for the day:

Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. 

Well, I took the test and my results where pretty spot on!



Here is what that means according to the test results:

INFJs are distinguished by both their complexity of character and the unusual range and depth of their talents. Strongly humanitarian in outlook, INFJs tend to be idealists, and because of their J preference for closure and completion, they are generally "doers" as well as dreamers. This rare combination of vision and practicality often results in INFJs taking a disproportionate amount of responsibility in the various causes to which so many of them seem to be drawn.

INFJs are deeply concerned about their relations with individuals as well as the state of humanity at large. They are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people -- a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious "soul mates." While instinctively courting the personal and organizational demands continually made upon them by others, at intervals INFJs will suddenly withdraw into themselves, sometimes shutting out even their intimates. This apparent paradox is a necessary escape valve for them, providing both time to rebuild their depleted resources and a filter to prevent the emotional overload to which they are so susceptible as inherent "givers." As a pattern of behavior, it is perhaps the most confusing aspect of the enigmatic INFJ character to outsiders, and hence the most often misunderstood -- particularly by those who have little experience with this rare type.

For those of you who know me in real life, this description is pretty accurate! Introvert often mistaken for extrovert. Needing time to rebuild depleted resources to prevent overload, taking responsibility, both doer and dreamer...Just reading the description makes me feel understood and at ease...how did they do that with just a few questions?!

Included in the personality information was a list of other famous people with the same personality type.

Other famous INFJ's
James Earl "Jimmy" Carter
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Michael Landon (Little House on the Prairie)
Tom Selleck
Nicole Kidman
Jerry Seinfeld

I would love to know what you are if you have a few minutes to take the test

  1. AH! I've never met another INFJ before!! I took this test a long time ago, and take it every so often just to make sure I haven't changed, and I'm an INFJ! We are a rare breed. I saw you listed famous people who are also INFJ's, I saw a Pinterest thing the other day with disney characters for each type and Pocahontas was the INFJ representative. I thought that was interesting. My husband is an ESTJ, which was represented by the horse in Tangled..haha.
