What's Your Personality?

Okay, I admit! I stole this from Piper!

Ever heard of the Myers-Briggs Personality test? It's one of those things that's supposed to help you figure out which of two types you are in 4 different categories:

Introverted (I) 86% Extraverted (E) 14%
Sensing (S) 82% Intuitive (N) 18%
Feeling (F) 60% Thinking (T) 40%
Judging (J) 73% Perceiving (P) 27%

I am apparently an ISFJ. I find it interesting that in college I was an ENFJ (one of whose optimum jobs is a teacher) and now I am very different.

I got the above results at Kisa and got the specific percentages. It shows that on the two that changed I'm not even close to being on the border. I wonder if I was deluding myself in college? (or now?) or if I really did swing that hard from being an extrovert to an introvert and an intuitive person to a sensing person.

The section below lists what characteristics a person like me should show. Those of you that know me in real life (or maybe just from this blog) what do you think? How far off/on is it?

You Are An ISFJ

The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person, who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut.


  1. I haven't done that test in years...I think I was an ESTJ or ESFJ.

  2. Hmmmm...I was an INTJ in college. I didn't know one changed personalities. I should take it again. I am sure the I is not so I anymore, but the j was always strong and to my chagrin, still is. Ooops!
