Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test? I have and I always come out as an INFJ. It is the rarest of the types; estimates say that 1-2% of the world’s population fit into the INFJ profile. This graphic from Introvert, Dear pretty much sums it up:
Personality tests have always fascinated me because I’m always striving to understand myself and my actions. It’s only as I’ve gotten older that I’ve been able to truly understand some of my idiosyncrasies which are (surprisingly) explained by the INFJ profile.
I think this is going to be a series of at least three or four entries. I’ve just been thinking a lot about who I am and how my experiences have shaped me and, of course, I just need to write it out to really understand the larger picture.
