I could talk to you about MBTI until I'm blue in the face. Next to Lost, MBTI is definitely my next obsession.
I've been trying to figure out a way to bring this up that would be informative and fun and wouldn't completely bore you to death if it isn't your cup of tea. So instead of talking about each of the 16 types, I'm just going to talk about my type.
I'm INFJ. Which stands for Introverted, Intuition, Feeling and Judging.
INFJs are known as "private individuals who prefer to be behind the scenes" UM YES. This is the reason why I know I want to get my Masters degree in Literacy and not Educational Leadership, no being a principal for me.
They prefer one on one relationships versus large groups.
They are guarded in expressing their own feelings especially to new people. YES. Although you may not get that sense from my blog, I HATE talking about my feelings in real life. This was a hugely sore subject amongst me and the last um, I don't know EVERY guy I have been involved with.
INFJs tend to withdraw as a way to set limits.
They place importance on having things orderly and systematic.
They also get "feelings" about things and intuitively understand them.
They are generally sensitive to conflict and go out of their way to avoid it.
INFJs are rarely at peace with themselves.
Lastly, INFJS are natural nurturers, often called "the counselor". They like being needed and enjoy solving problems.
INFJs dominant function is introverted intuition, this also explains why I have such bad anxiety about pretty much everything. The best way to explain introverted intuition is eternally thinking about everything that could go wrong. I read online once that INFJs live in a world of hypothetical situations and that's exactly what it feels like. It's crappy and useful. It helps me when I plan lessons for work and school but it's crippling when I try new things.
So, with that being said, if you know it, what is your personality type?
