I’m an INFP!

I am an INFP!

I’m really not much into zodiac signs and traits or signature/handwriting analysis and other such stuff. All these claim to unveil certain aspects of your personality, tell you things about your core nature- according to the stars or by the degree of slant in your handwriting. Some people can even read things between the lines that form on your forehead when you frown (face reading you know or Physiognomy!). Amusing! So much of wisdom lying around in everything that I do, yet I could never fathom any of it by myself. I don’t understand all of this, I never have and I guess, I never will.INFP

I know…I know, my very first sentence screamed that I’m an INFP. Yes, I am that and I love it. The Myers Briggs personality type is the only personality analysis that I’ve loved and it compels me to believe in it. I took the test long back and I took it again last week, luckily I haven’t changed much…I fall into the same INFP type. I took the test on this site called 16 personalities. It asked me a detailed set of questions and some of those questions got me thinking about myself. Initially the test felt like it was an ordinary personality test, probably crap. But this one was different; not based on your profile picture rather on a set of questions that are so diverse and can actually cover certain aspects of your personality- it’s draws inference on the basis of psychological study I feel. This one feels honest for a change.

I have this general perception about any kind of test or method that claims to tell me about my core nature. It is judgmental I feel; looking at the surface you can’t gauge the depths of the ocean. They are fun nevertheless and so I often click on links that claim to know me better than I know myself.

As far as it is fun and if it gives your moral a boost I assume such random personality tests mean no harm. They mostly tell you things that you already know.

So, you believe in yourself and keep growing meanwhile I’ll go and check out a few other tests! 😀

P.S – I’ll let you know if I find a good one.

  1. I love the Myers Briggs Personality Test. I have used it at work before. I find it fascinating and I have to say it is really accurate for me. I am an INTJ and have been for a few years now. However I used to come up as an ISTJ, which was more about what I did for a living than who I was as a person. Now that I am far more confident in who I really am, the true personality type has emerged and I am thrilled I am no longer stuck in “Work Me’. It can also be interesting and helpful to know the type of people you engage with – it can explain why you rub along really with some people and clash with others. All interesting stuff 🙂

    1. Totally agree with that. It’s been so accurate, after almost every line it made go “Omg, that’s totally me!”. I’m glad you discovered your true personality type and that you are happy about it , we all change and grow with time and that is a beautiful thing I feel…to evolve as person, to embrace your true nature and to work towards being a better person everyday. Much love ❤

  2. Well, I was already going to follow you after the nice comment you left on my blog, but this post confirms it. I’m also an INFP! It’s scary how accurate the description is, isn’t it?

      1. Actually, I did use the MBT.

        Alright. Compulsive, I research this ad nauseam. Did you know that only 1.5% of males in the U.S. are INFP? This was reassuring to me. Now I KNOW why I feel like a freak most of the time!

        Here’s why I have gone for years without a date: https://mbtipopculture.wordpress.com/2015/03/27/the-infp-sex-dating-and-love/

        Again, yay! Thank you internet. It’s not you, it IS me!!!

        The upside is sharing traits with Shakespeare and Frodo Baggins of the Shire, JRR Tolkien, Charlie Brown, Fred Rogers, John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn, and Isabel Briggs Myers (creator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator).
