Most of us know if we’re extroverted or introverted, right?
I’ve always thought I was slightly introverted but the Myer Briggs personality test showed me otherwise. I swear the results were written by the fly that lives on my wall and it feels like someone has been watching me for 34 years and written an extended personality essay about who I am – strengths, weakness and 2 minute noodle bad habit included.
I was seriously so intrigued by the results that I sent the test to my BFF and made her do it.
We got the same result – ENFJ. My bestie and I are very different people so I did the test 3 more times just to make sure … and got the same result every time.
So there you have it. I’m a ENFJ – extraversion, intuition, feeling, judgment. As an ENFJ, my primary mode of living is focused externally, where I deal with things according to how I feel about them, or how they fit into my personal value system. My secondary mode is internal, where I take things in primarily via my intuition.
The test is based on four principal psychological functions: thinking, sensation, intuition and feeling. The theory is one of these functions is dominant most of the time.
ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are often times our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, ENFJs take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.
Turns out I share the same personality type as Oprah, Barack Obama & Michael Jordan!
Are you surprised by the result or impressed?
