At this particular session, we took an online personality test--I luv those! Pop psychology to be taken with a grain of salt. I consider it good fun. It's a very short test on Jung Personality Types.
Here's the address if you're curious:
Now, I remember taking a really longer version in college--pages and pages of the same crap rehashed in so many different ways. It got on my nerves! I also took a similarly long one when I first started work for another company so many years ago. I didn't remember my scores or my personality types. Probably because I don't take these things too seriously. Maybe because I suspect my answers were skewed because I was tired and irritated by answering all those pages of questions, and in the end, I was just rushing through.
But here are my results from today's test:
|Strength of the preferences %|
Which means, according to the site:
"ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are.
ENFJs are global learners. They see the big picture. The ENFJs focus is expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously...
ENFJs are, by definition, Js, with whom we associate organization and decisiveness...
ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear." --http://typelogic.com/enfj.html
I guess this means I'm a people person. I do like people...til they get on my nerves.
Some famous ENFJ types include:
President Abraham Lincoln
President Barack Obama
Pope John Paul II
So, I guess this means I should either get into politics, build a media empire, or wear stylish robes and a hat to lead the masses. Hmmm, perhaps it's time for a career change.
Take the test, and tell me what's your Personality Type?
