all about personality

My last visit to the Pink Heels website, prompted me to check out and take the personality test. I've taken this test a few times before and have typically found that my results defined my personality as an ENFJ--E (extrovert) N (intuitive) F (feeling) J (judging). Although my E (extrovert) score and I (introvert) score were always very close. I consider myself a social person, and I enjoy being around people; however, I do find that my energy is refueled more by being alone than with others. I definitely need that alone time in order to feel like being social.

I would encourage you to take the test--even if you have taken it before. It's also important to understand exactly what the descriptions mean. On the surface, the J (judging) type wasn't something I was pleased about, but after further reading, I learned that judging did not mean judgmental, but instead indicated that I prefer order, organization, structure, and I am responsible--which I would agree with completely. This is one of the many, many reasons yoga is so good for me. It has helped me learn to be more flexible and go with the flow!

When I took the test this last time, the results showed I am an INFJ's (the I--introvert--actually won!):

"INFJs, making up an estimated 1% of all people, are the most rare type (males even more so). They are introspective, caring, sensitive, gentle and complex people that strive for peace and derive satisfaction from helping others. INFJs are highly intuitive, empathetic and dedicated listeners. These traits tend to act as a "tell me what's wrong" sign on their forehead, hence the nicknames Confidant, Counselor or Empath. INFJs are intensely private and deeply committed to their beliefs.

INFJs tend to be devoted to what they believe in and seek work where their needs, values, and ideals can be deeply engaged. They move on the wave of their inspirations and are determined to see that their values are worked out in their lives. They will work toward their goals individually and, when needed, will put together a team of other highly dedicated people like themselves."

Overall, I would say this is an accurate description of my personality. I would love to hear the results of this test for all you lovely ladies out there in blog land...

Have a blessed day!
