Myers-Briggs Junk Drawer October 1st, 2013

Every once in a while, I find myself back at Myers-Briggs Personality profiles. I'm never entirely sure why. I blame my wife for the latest round. Afterall, she's the one who said, "Come over here and look at this description of my personality. Doesn't it fit me perfectly?" It did. And mine fit my tendencies as well. That said, sometimes the descriptions can be so vague that you can see some of yourself in any of them. And that's not particularly helpful.

But it's still fun. So why not have some of this variety in this episode of The Junk Drawer?

Step 1: Take a test, if you haven't before. There's a faux one here.

Step 2: Find your personality type on this page and click through to the detailed assessment here.

Step 3: Share your type and what you found interesting. What it got right or what it got wrong.

For example, I'm an INFP.

INFPs are flexible and laid-back, until one of their values is violated. In the face of their value system being threatened, INFPs can become aggressive defenders, fighting passionately for their cause. When an INFP has adopted a project or job which they're interested in, it usually becomes a "cause" for them. Although they are not detail-oriented individuals, they will cover every possible detail with determination and vigor when working for their "cause".

When it comes to the mundane details of life maintenance, INFPs are typically completely unaware of such things. They might go for long periods without noticing a stain on the carpet, but carefully and meticulously brush a speck of dust off of their project booklet.

INFPs are usually talented writers. They may be awkard and uncomfortable with expressing themselves verbally, but have a wonderful ability to define and express what they're feeling on paper.

Those all fit me really well, I think. There's some other things to go through in there as well. Either that, or you can post more pictures of cats.
