For today’s blogtember post, we were asked to take this personality quiz.
I’ve taken the Myers-Briggs personality quiz several times over my life and I’ve always claimed my type to be ENTJ.
For those of you who have never taken this quiz (and I really encourage you to have fun with the one attached to the link), the Myers-Briggs looks at your personality in categories and where your preference is within these categories. It is a great way to get to understand yourself better.
The categories are the following:
Extroversion (E) or Introversion (I)
Sensing (S) or Intuition (N)
Thinking (T) of Feeling (F)
Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)
The last time I took the actual test, the psychologist was stunned and stated “I’ve never had anyone come back like this.” I think this is when James stated “You’ve never met Sheryl”
From that test, I was the first person he had ever met that was basically a strong double in most categories (with the exception I was certainly a N.) I was considered a Double when it came to Extroversion and Introversion and had strong secondaries of Feeling and Perceiving.
So, I’ve lived most of my life living with the ENTJ personality which views the world as “Everything’s Fine – I’m in Charge” (and I”m pretty sure I have some co workers and friends who would agree with that” and with the INTJ personality of “Competence+Independence = Perfection” (I don’t think anyone would disagree with that.
So I take this little personality quiz.
And I’m not who I used to be (but I think I knew that already)
I took the test three times (because, maybe I didn’t chose the right answer)
Yesterday and today – I came back a INFJ.
I’ve now moved to a personality that is the “Most Contemplative” of the personalities.
As I have always been someone with such close scores in the categories, it shouldn’t be surprising that with everything I have gone through that my scores would be different.
The last year of my life has changed me in ways that I do not even know at this time. I still love people and need socialization (extroversion) but have found I am not getting the quiet time (introverted) I truly need. In the end, I’m not sure how things will end up.
Have some fun for yourself and take the test and read your results. You never know what you will find out about yourself.
Have a great week!!
