Who am I?

Thought it would be interesting to do this test too (thanks for the idea PJ and Ch@ndy), and here are my results:

"You are an INFP!

As an INFP, you are Introverted, iNtuative, Feeling , Perceiving.
This makes your primary focus on Introverted Feeling with Extroverted Intuition.

This is defined as a NF personality, which is part of Carl Jung's Idealist (Identity Seeking) type, and more specifically the Healers or Idealist"

I could just as easily be:

"an ENFP!

As an ENFP, you are Extroverted, iNtuative, Feeling , Perceiving.
This makes your primary focus on Extroverted Intuition with Introverted Feeling.

This is defined as a NF personality, which is part of Carl Jung's Idealist (Identity Seeking) type, and more specifically the Champions or Inspirer.

As a weblogger, you may not be consistent in posts. Although, if you find a specific focus on their journal or a very flexible manner of writing, it may be more fulfilling..."

[ain't that the truth..."not consistent in posts", that is...]

Why either/or? Basically, I am an introvert that learned to function and/or have spent most of my life functioning as an extrovert. Being a "people" person was valued in my family. Hey, I don't blame anyone here. I count myself lucky to be ambifunctional.

Extrovert personality traits (based on this little test):

  • Very talkative and outgoing [I would actually rather crawl in a hole in social situations, but in the right situation I can be outgoing. And I am always like talkative, in particular, when I am nervous.]
  • Distracted easily...
  • Act first, and then think

Introvert personality traits (also a la little test):

  • good listener and more private
  • as a hostess, always behind the scenes making sure things run smoothly

But that's superfluous to the crux of my personality, really. It's the "NF" (iNtuative, Feeling) that really identifies my personality. Basically, I don't like conflict or criticism in particular. Also, I need time alone to think things through regardless of the introvert/extrovert delineation. Another interesting tidbit is that for an "NF", Everything that they do must be in line with their values.

The alter-ego page explains, similarly, Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP's value system...

Regardless, neither personality description eliminates the fact that I stepped squarely - and barefooted - into a pile of dog vomit today.

i know this is really gross but my little brother and I used to take turns running barefoot around the backyard as fast as we could without looking. The trick was to not step in any of the dog numbers that had been accumulating for 2-3 weeks.

It was always started by a dare made when there was an occasional break in the rain.
