The beauty of the world is that everyone is different. Everyone has a different personality and it is not good or bad, but rather unique in their own special way. It is important to learn about one’s own personality to figure out how you work best and what you do or do not like. When you learn about the personalities of others, it helps you figure out how they work and how you can work together.

This is one of the reasons why groups will sometimes provide these tests for their members. It allows people to understand how other members can work together best. If you have not taken the test, then take it here and come back.

Personally, I find that I am a hard person to categorize. It’s hard for me to fit myself into one category when I have many different interests. Also, when I take the test, I sometimes come out with different results because of how borderline I am on some of the categories. The questions can also vary, which can change the results as well.

I come out as an:

INFJ (most of the time), ENFJ, INFP, ENFP

I am right in the middle when it comes to extrovert vs. introvert. This is called an ambivert. I value introspection and time to myself with my thoughts just as much as I value interacting and maintaining relationships with others. I can have just as much fun reading a book at home on Friday as I do going out to a party on Saturday.

I can see a direct influence of these two important values in my top two future professions: a writer and a psychologist. The writer in me wants to watch what is going on around me and describe it, while being immersed in my own thoughts. The psychologist in me wants to be actively involved in people’s stories and help them come to a point where they can figure their emotions out.

I am intuitive and feeling. This never changes when I take this test. I think imaginatively and allow myself to use feelings to learn about myself and others. These two things are more important to me than logic or reason.

I usually come out more as Judging than Perceiving, but not by much. I display a great propensity for planning and scheduling. I like to know what I am doing in advanced, what I need to bring and what to expect. There are certain things that I have to keep organized, but others that I do not (like my room or my bag). However, when things are not organized, it stresses me out, which aligns with judging. I do like to be spontaneous at times, but I have to say that I usually prefer knowing what is going to happen.


ENFJ, the Teacher

ENFJ: The Teacher


ENFJs are idealist organizers, driven to implement their vision of what is best for humanity. They often act as catalysts for human growth because of their ability to see potential in other people and their charisma in persuading others to their ideas. They are focused on values and vision, and are passionate about the possibilities for people.

ENFJs are typically energetic and driven, and often have a lot on their plates. They are tuned into the needs of others and acutely aware of human suffering; however, they also tend to be optimistic and forward-thinking, intuitively seeing opportunity for improvement. The ENFJ is ambitious, but their ambition is not self-serving: rather, they feel personally responsible for making the world a better place.

ENFP, the Champion

ENFP: The Champion


ENFPs are people-centered creators with a focus on possibilities and a contagious enthusiasm for new ideas, people and activities. Energetic, warm, and passionate, ENFPs love to help other people explore their creative potential.

ENFPs are typically agile and expressive communicators, using their wit, humor, and mastery of language to create engaging stories. Imaginative and original, ENFPs often have a strong artistic side. They are drawn to art because of its ability to express inventive ideas and create a deeper understanding of human experience.

INFJ, the Counselor

INFJ: The Counselor


INFJs are creative nurturers with a strong sense of personal integrity and a drive to help others realize their potential. Creative and dedicated, they have a talent for helping others with original solutions to their personal challenges.

The Counselor has a unique ability to intuit others’ emotions and motivations, and will often know how someone else is feeling before that person knows it himself. They trust their insights about others and have strong faith in their ability to read people. Although they are sensitive, they are also reserved; the INFJ is a private sort, and is selective about sharing intimate thoughts and feelings.

INFP, the Healer

INFP: The Healer


INFPs are imaginative idealists, guided by their own core values and beliefs. To a Healer, possibilities are paramount; the realism of the moment is only of passing concern. They see potential for a better future, and pursue truth and meaning with their own individual flair.

INFPs are sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others. Individualistic and nonjudgmental, INFPs believe that each person must find their own path. They enjoy spending time exploring their own ideas and values, and are gently encouraging to others to do the same. INFPs are creative and often artistic; they enjoy finding new outlets for self-expression.

I like getting to see the different facets my personality has because it makes me more unique than just having one personality type. 
Whether you identify with all 16 types or just one, it’s nice to learn more about your own personality.
So, what type are you? What qualities do you agree with and which ones do you not agree with? Do you agree with your profession?
