Searching For Satisfaction

What’s Your Personality Type?

Posted on: March 29, 2011


 

Ever taken a Myers-Briggs Test?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personality inventory questionnaire, and it’s often used as part of an overall job/career assessment. Knowing your Myers-Briggs type can help you figure out what careers you’re best suited for, as well as just give you general information about your personality, and your outlook on the world.

Myers-Briggs has 4 dichotomies:

  • Extraversion – Introversion
  • Sensing – Intuition
  • Thinking – Feeling
  • Judgement – Perception

How you score in each of the four dichotomies makes up your overall Myers-Briggs type, which is made up of letters from all four dichotomies. So for example, you’ll hear people refer to themselves as an ESTP or an INTJ.

I took the Myers-Briggs the other day, because the attorney mentioned it, and I realized that I hadn’t taken it since I was in high school. I knew I was an “E” given my super-extroverted nature, but I wasn’t sure about the rest of my type.

If you wanna take the Myers-Brigg, try this one: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

So what is Jubi’s type? I’m an ENFP, also known as a Champion, which fits under the Idealist grouping.

Champions are:

  • rare – only 3-4% of the population
  • very in touch with their emotions & the emotions of others
  • view life as a great drama & strive to have new experiences
  • very individualistic
  • often write or speak to share truth & knowledge with others
  • have strong intuitive powers
  • are observers & able to observe/read other people
  • are very good with people & have strong personal relationships
  • are very good in public, especially speaking in public
  • are spontaneous & dramatic

Champions often find careers as a counselor, teacher, writer, journalist, publicists, advertising execs, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and inventors.

I’d say that my Myers-Briggs type describes me well 😉 I’m extremely extroverted; I draw my energy from other people and I love to socialize with others. I am a very emotional person; as I get older I’ve learned how to rely on my emotional intelligence & intuitions as it relates both my life & also in my dealings with other people. As many of my friend’s know, I’m an inquisitive person, and I love to study other people, either through questions or simply through observation. Spontaneity & the desire to constantly have new experiences are definitely a part of my personality.

As for the careers part, well let’s see…I’m currently I’m a scientist/engineer. Over the past few years (especially the last year) I’ve embraced the writer in me & discovered my voice. And my ultimate goal is to be an entrepreneur…looks like all of that fits right in with my personality type.

Have you ever done the Myers-Briggs? What’s your personality type? Does it describe you?

According to the test, I’m an INTJ also known as a Mastermind. In reading the descriptions, I believe this personality type really does fit me.
Here are some characteristics I found interesting (they applied to me) –

~Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead.
~Only ideas that make sense to them are adopted; those that don’t, aren’t, no matter who thought of them.
~Decisions come easily to them; in fact, they can hardly rest until they have things settled and decided. But before they decide anything, they must do the research.
~many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. 🙂

And what’s so interesting in that it says that I should be a computer programmer. What do I do for a living – software engineering. Simply put I am a programmer. I’ve wanted to do this since I was in middle school.

INTP (Slight Edge To Thinking Over Feeling…)… I forgot where I fall into, & I frankly I don’t care…

LOL @ Champion though… Did they actually call you a champion or was that self proclaimed…

Lot of truth to MB Type…

& That Is why I love categorizing/seterotyping & I need get even more use to being categorized/stereotyped…

Your Type is
ENTJ

Strength of the preferences %

I am very much an ENFJ – the Teacher-Idealist. If you know anything about Myers-Briggs, you know this suits me to a T, especially the “articulate, articulate, articulate” part. LOL
