Personality tests are fascinating to me. I love them.
I love seeing the results for myself & for others.
It can make us feel understood, I guess.
But lately, they are causing me some confusion.
Not really an identity crisis. An identity confusion, perhaps?
I used to be a strong ENFP.
I never failed to get the same result on any test.
And I was happy.
I was glad to be the Champion.
That was back in my days of singlehood.
Now, I guess I have changed quite a bit.
I married a very strong INTJ.
You know, as in, a Mr. Darcy.
i.e. Mr. Brilliant.
He probably influences me a lot.
I've seen some grief now, in losing my baby.
And, I am now a mom, with 4 littles with me almost always.
I used to be a strong Extrovert.
Now, I think due to all the life changes I mentioned,
I would, indeed choose a quiet time with a book, over a big party.
I still am an "e", just a moderate one. One with more balance?
When I tried taking the Jung this weekend, I got different results each time.
I guess I don't even know myself enough to answer the questions.
Argh! Who am I?
I am moving between the ESFJ & the ESFP.
What happened to my iNtuition?
When I got the ESFP result, I was bummed.
A Performer? No. I don't want to be that.
What - shallow & obnoxious?
But, then I saw that Ronald Reagan was an ESFP.
I guess I could bear it & use it for good & not evil.
I took the test again, just to make sure, cuz i didn't feel like a performer
& I was so sure I was really an ENFP.
Second result was ESFJ.
Provider. Hospitable & neighborly & event coordinating.
Maybe that is close? I feel it could be.
As I receive varying results, my husband tells me I am not being true to myself.
Wait! I thought that was supposed to be my line!
I'll try to not worry about it too much.
I'll take a break from re-taking the test.
I may need professional help.
On a serious note, at least I know I am a daughter of Jesus.
And I know I was made to serve Him.
But I want to know about you.
What is your "type"?
