Let’s talk personality types. Introverted? Extroverted? Unsure-troverted? 😉 If you know your Myers-Briggs type, tell us about it! If not, you can take this similar test and share your results.
I took the test that is linked and I scored ISFJ:
I read through the description of ISFJs and it described me, very accurately.
I took the following from this website. It’s a thorough website to read about all 16 different personality types:
ISFJs can often be found in lines of work with a sense of history behind them, such as medicine, academics and charitable social work. However, they are unlikely to seek out managerial positions in these fields, and are still more unlikely to brag about their accomplishments – ISFJs prefer to be rewarded by seeing first-hand the positive impact of their efforts, and will remain enthusiastic simply knowing that what they do is genuinely appreciated by the people they care for.
Naturally social, an odd quality given that they are Introverted, ISFJs utilize an excellent memory not to retain data and trivia, but to remember people and details about their lives. When it comes to gift-giving, ISFJs have no equal, using their imagination and natural sensitivity to express their generosity in a way that will always touch the hearts of their recipients. While this is certainly true of their coworkers, whom ISFJs consider their personal friends more often than not, it is in family that their expression of affection blooms fully.
ISFJs’ ability to connect with others on an intimate level is unrivaled among Introverts, and the joy they experience from using those connections to maintain a supportive, happy family is a gift for everyone involved. They may never be truly comfortable in the spotlight, and may feel guilty taking due credit for a team effort, but if they can find a way to ensure that their efforts are recognized, both in the workplace and at home, ISFJs are likely to feel a level of satisfaction in what they do that many other personality types can only dream of.
