What even are you?

Have you done the Myers-Briggs test?  I did mine a long time ago but it never changes much.  I’m an INFP, super heavy on the introverted part.  A dreamer/mediator/healer.  And it makes sense, I guess.  INFP’s are often writers.  They’re pure idealists, always looking for good in bad, and are usually perceived as shy, isolated and misunderstood.  They listen to everyone but usually only pick one single cause to focus on, otherwise they get too overwhelmed with the bad in the world.  They easily lose touch and withdraw into hermit mode, and it takes a lot of energy from friends and family to bring them back.  They are focused on kindness and compassion but are too idealistic, setting themselves up for disappointment as evil things happen in the world.  They are loyal, apologize to inanimate objects and crave harmony.

It’s eerily accurate, but I can’t decide if it’s accurate because I’m answering the questions that put me into a group that matches my answers or if the group already exists and the answers help me understand who I am.  Regardless, I often ask friends what their personality type is because it helps me understand the issues we’ll have.

I’m interested though in what your personality type is.  INFP is supposedly rare (composing just 4% of the population) but I wonder if that’s true here?  Do we all attract like-minds?  Or is it our difference that pulls us together?  Regardless, I’d like to know.  You can take a quick version of the test here if you haven’t already.  Leave it below, y’all.

PS.  Victor is an ESTJ (Executive) which means “OH MY GOD, I DON’T CARE ABOUT THESE DUMB TESTS SO STOP ASKING ME ABOUT THEM”.  That is so ESTJ.

  9. ENFJ PERSONALITY (“THE PROTAGONIST”)

    ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes 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.

    I like being part of only 2 percent of the population.

  11. INFP as well. I’ve found that the online circles I run in tend to have a lot more of us than the real world. I think it’s because it feels a lot easier and safer (mentally and emotionally anyway) to connect with people online than it is in person. At least for me, and I would guess for a lot of us on here or we wouldn’t be on here.

  41. INFP-T (“THE MEDIATOR”). Apparently, I’m part of an extinct species, as my group only makes up 4% of the population. The most telling piece of information: “Left unchecked, INFPs may start to lose touch, withdrawing into “hermit mode”, and it can take a great deal of energy from their friends or partner to bring them back to the real world.” This is the one part that’s right on the nose. If it were up to me, I’d never leave the sanctuary of my couch, with the exceptions of going to the bathroom and going to bed. I have agoraphobic tendencies (I’ve been completely shut-in because of this in the past).
    On the bright side, I’m in good company – Shakespeare, Tolkien, Tom Hiddleston… I could totally go into “hermit mode” (which is actually the exact phrase I use to describe it) with Tom Hiddleston.

And my OCD involves compulsive thinking, and throws things off too, because I’ve recognized that if I let it have it’s way I’d go nuts if everything wasn’t sparkling clean and organized.

  70. I’ve been INFP for over 20 years [well, probably before that, but that’s when I first discovered the test.] Once in a great while if I get in a certain mode I slip over to INTP. And one really annoying test whose questions I didn’t like at all had me pegged as ISFP, which was so incredibly wrong it’s not even funny, but their choices were ridiculous. Anyway, yeah. I knew there was a reason why I empathize so much with your writing style. Besides its general awesomeness, I mean. Also, I’m amazed Victor the ESTJ gets along with you as well as he does, though I suppose there’s a ying-yang, “bringing balance to The Force” kinda thing going on there, too. It’s arguably better than two INFP’s getting together, because then one them eventually HAS to take over the extroverted, sensory, thinking, judging duties on occasion, which is annoying. Otherwise, bills don’t get paid on time, yo. (My wife and I are both INFP. We are pretty much hermits.)

    I am almost NEVER spontaneous if it’s more practical to have a plan.
    Recently, a male acquaintance joked that I might go home with him later. I was disgusted that he thought me so naive and stupid. He could not fathom why. I went on to explain that before I consider going home with somebody there will be a discussion of STDs, of condoms, of sexual kinks and preferences.
    His response was to laugh. No contribution to a grownup conversation. Just laughter and then “well, I’m told I am quite good in bed.”
    My reply “What are you good at?” “Says who?”
    Arrogantly, dismissively “Oh, plenty of girls.”
    I requested some names and phone numbers. He responded that I wasn’t any fun and that “Nobody” plans a night of sex like that.
    I find it fascinating that he is convinced that I am an airhead and that he is the guarded intellectual with zero evidence for either.

    Regardless of what the test tells you, whichever personality type description that you read and can most relate to is the one that’s truly your personality type.

    I feel like INFJ, INFP, INTJ, and INTP all have a hard time being understood and end up feeling a bit alone or distant from others because of that, but thanks to the Internet, I think we tend to find ourselves congregating to these corners together where we finally feel not so alone [:

  118. The N and F are pretty consistent for me, but I score right in the middle of E/I and J/P, so the tests give me varying results there. Today I was ENFP. Last time I did this, I think I was ENFJ, and the time before I was INFJ. Seems pretty true to who I am, especially because I feel very conflicted trying to answer a lot of those questions. So many times the true answer is “well, it depends on the circumstances” which seems like such a cop-out. Ah well.

Type acronyms != Myers-Briggs.

    As a Jungian enthusiast, it’s pretty annoying to see people trying to act smart by pointing out that Big Five is supposed to be a superior model (apples and oranges… separate topic) to anything Jung-related – all while using a Big Five-based website as an example of Jung’s ideas.

ENFP was described as a rock star, or actress and I was like “So I get to be a rock star if I start saying hello to people?” I did not wind up a rock star, but I did become a clown for Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus where I got to perform for thousands and have no one recognize me.

I had to tell her, just being able to talk in a group isn’t always a sign of an extrovert, it’s more about how you get your energy. For her going to a big party would be an energy turn on. For me it’s okay, but I’d rather be home (maybe alone even-HORRORS).

  233. It is so strange that you should post this today–I’ve been exploring this for the past couple of weeks. Turns out I’m an INFP, and it fits me too. (I’ve also had my family take the test. They only did it to stop me from pestering them about taking the test.) But I think it explains a lot. I’ve always tried to do things or act in ways that weren’t really “me”, because I thought I was wrong, I wanted to fit in, I wanted to please other people. But you can’t truly change your personality any more than you can change which hand you write with. Trying to do so may be marginally successful, but it will never feel right. Pretty sad when you are 48 years old and only started to accept and be true to yourself within the past 2 years, huh? But better late than never I guess!

    I’m close enough to the center of the spectrum for the Nature & Tactics categories that I suspect my mood might influence the results in a different way if I took the test again later.

    Have you ever taken an Enneatype test? That personality type system is actually based, um, sort of on which of the Deadly Sins you’re most prone to, but it’s shockingly accurate for how many strange little ways this interacts with your life. I’m a Type 9 in that, the description of which describes me even more accurately than INFP does, although it’s similar (the Type 9 title is “The Peacemaker.” Our Deadly Sin is Sloth. Okay that has less to do with INFP though. Okay, I’ll go into it more: basically, we intrinsically value peace so much that, when we’re not at our best, we’ll keep as quiet and out of the way as possible so as to not upset the proverbial apple cart. At our worst, we’re catatonic. But at our best we are in fact wonderful mediators).

  251. So here’s the question – nearly 75% of your readers are introverted, with the largest percentage INFP – INFP personalities comprise only 4% of the population and 21% of those are readers or followers of your blog, this means that nearly a quarter of all INFP’s have found you and like what you write, does this make you the mouthpiece of the quiet and reserved? (I was going to say meek, but this doesn’t describe in introvert at all, I am quiet, but I am far from meek).
    You need to ask Victor to figure out what all these percentages mean, this is the work for an ESTJ (hopefully he can find some benefit in the results, if not the test)

Do I seem like an odd/rare member of your tribe? I was the one at your book signing who told you how much my Mommy would have loved to meet you – you MUST remember me; I HAVE to been the only one to have relayed to you, amongst the THRONGS of people at the signings, how IMPORTANT you are in my life, right? You remember, right?😉

    (Just in case MY case was, in fact, “unique”, I had printed out your whale doodle, and you signed it “For Lois, You raised a good one” to my dead Mommy). I can’t imagine I’m the only person who brought you something like that to sign, and for that type of reason, though. But I AM curious about extroverts being a glitch in your system. Hmm…

    (Victor and Hailey are both extroverts and they’re members of the tribe, so no worries. In fact, Hailey is exactly the same as me except that I’m 99% introversion and she is 100% extroversion. Sometimes being the weirdo in the group of weirdos just makes you more special.🙂 ~ Jenny)

  299. I am an ESFJ which ultimately means I make sure everyone in my house and life have everything they need before they even know they need it. It can be creepy at times but they’ve learned to accept it. It also means that I like to feel appreciated and when I feel used or unappreciated, I tend to throw a temper tantrum. And rightly so. My husband is an INTJ which means he’s constantly trying to hone his skills in video games or whatever he sets his mind to so that he can attain Wizard level status. I constantly try to get him to go out and make friends and he has no desire to be social. It’s taken quite a few years to understand each other, but we work even though we are in absolute opposite ends of the spectrum. I think the J in our personality types might be the glue that keeps us together because neither of us can handle chaos. I just want to add here that my husband is absolutely wonderful in that he allows me to be me and gave me the okay to buy a 5 foot tall metal pink flamingo because I just had to have some whimsy in my life.

  308. INTJ and here’s a blurb I use for my POF/Match/etc Singles Profile that goes up and gets taken down in frustration…

    INTJ: The outside contractor
    INTJs are solid, competent personalities who may seem aloof and even arrogant, but who are typically highly skilled in any field which interests them. INTJs are confident in their skills and knowledge, self-assured, and imaginitive; their exceptional problem-solving skills make them ideal architects, auto mechanics, and tools of the evil empire. While it requires the driving will to conquer of an ENTJ to imagine the Death Star and the evil genius of an ENTP to invent its devastating weapons systems, the skill and technical prowess of the INTJ is what makes the whole thing work.
    The INTJ sees life as a problem to be solved. For that reason, the INTJ is the person a company brings in from the outside to streamline production processes and identify redundant assets for termination. The INTJ’s combination of analyticial problem-solving skills and complete and utter disregard for the morality or consequences of his actions also make him ideal for the job of hatchet man, CIA operative, and helpdesk operator.
    RECREATION: INTJs are often baffled by the strange and incomprehensible recreational rituals of other people, such as going to parties, watching television, and having sex. Instead, they prefer to spend their leisure time installing twin missile launchers in their cars to deter tailgaters and playing chess with megalomaniac CEOs of the Tyrell corporation.
    COMPATIBILITY: Silly person, INTJs don’t have relationships! They may, however build their own friends.
    Famous INTJs include J. F. Sebastian and Sgt. Apone.

I don’t recall what our manager tested as, except that her positioning of the test as a way to get to know how each of us worked best translated in actual management style to: “I read about something in some book and I’m incapable of creative thought so that’s how we’re doing it, regardless of all evidence to the contrary or whatever your Myers-Briggs said about you.”

  394. I’ve always typed as an INFP (well, except for that one time in college when I thought that being more social than I usually am meant that I was extroverted so I typed as an ENFP). I had to take the official MBTI in grad school to get my Counseling degree, so I figure INFP is probably accurate since that’s what I got.

    The thing about it is, a LOT of people mistype as Ns when they should be Ss, because Ns are often stereotyped as creative, offbeat, and forward thinking (which most people like to believe they are) and Ss are stereotyped as rigid and conventional (and who wants to be THAT?). It’s actually a flaw in perception. Both Ns and Ss could be either creative or conventional. MBTI types are more about cognition and how one thinks and processes, which means you need to know more about the actual cognitive functions behind each type to really learn about it. Probably more people should be S dominant types than actually type that way.

INTP personalities are so prone to reassessing their own thoughts and theories, worrying that they’ve missed some critical piece of the puzzle, that they can stagnate, lost in an intangible world where their thoughts are never truly applied” rings incredibly true.

  427. Mine says I’m ISFP – which does not describe me AT ALL. Well the introvert part does, but not the rest. Well I don’t think it does. Maybe it does and I have a severely skewed image of myself. Oh dear god, this test has heightened my anxiety. Damn you test!

  428. I’m an INFJ, borderline INFP, borderline ISFJ. Basically I don’t think it knows what to do with me. The description of INFJs on Wikipedia is stunningly accurate to me though… INFJs supposedly make up only 1% of the population, but I have met many. I don’t know if those statistics or crap or if we just tend more toward a) online communities and b) mental illness than other personality types.

  429. INFP here too. Took the test the first time a little over 10 years ago as part of an employee team building activity at a previous job. No matter how many times I take some form of the test, I’m firmly an INFP, heavy on the introvert as well. That fact always surprises people given the various professions I’ve had that have required me to be out there and turned on as part of my job…fitness/yoga instructor (15+ years), volunteer manager/trainer (5 years), elementary school employee with some teaching duties (5 years). But no matter how the personality type is described, it always fits me to a tee. Your description above could be a personalized description of me. It seems the older I get the more I feel the need to recharge from my “on” roles as a teacher, mom, wife, and community member with plenty of “off” time. I’m not always good about asking for that down time, but since hitting the big 40 last year I am starting to feel less guilty about when I do finally open up and ask for what I need.

    (On a side note, I NEVER would have guessed I would enjoy writing so much as I do after 12ish years of blogging. I don’t even care really that I don’t have a readership. It’s the process of expression I’ve fallen in love with. I wonder if it’s an INFP thing?)

  435. I’ve been taking (and administering back in the day) these for years. Decades even. I will always always land on ENF. The last one (P or T) will vary depending on the day. And yes, this is very reflective of my personality. I definitely thrive on social interactions. My emotions and compassion run close to the surface. However while I hold two engineering degrees and work in a technical field, my personal hobbies run to the creative – photography, quilting, reading, movies.

  439. I don’t recall the letters, just that I was very rare (undoudtedly an IN something). A couple hundred of us at work did the test and of us all only 11 of us were this type; me and 10 women.

  470. I had to vote for two on your poll, so I don’t know if that messes with your validity or any of that stuff. But I am an I/ENFP. I always get exactly, or nearly exactly equally numbers of introvert and extrovert numbers. I truly don’t know what that means, but I think it’s a Bipolar thing. We have ups and downs, sometimes we’re extroverts and sometimes we’re not. That’s probably over sixmplifying it, but that’s my theory.
