Personally? I’m an INTJ!

Oh Boy today’s Blogtember prompt should be interesting! Here it goes: Take this short personality test and respond to your results.

Here’s a general overview of my results: INTJ

  • Strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion
  • Slight preference of Intuition over Sensing
  • Slight preference of Thinking over Feeling
  • Distinctive preference of Judging over Perceiving

“INTJs are introspective, analytical, determined persons with natural leadership ability. Being reserved, they prefer to stay in the background while leading. Strategic, knowledgable and adaptable, INTJs are talented in bringing ideas from conception to reality. They expect perfection from themselves as well as others and are comfortable with the leadership of another so long as they are competent. INTJs can also be described as decisive, open-minded, self-confident, attentive, theoretical and pragmatic.”

Almost all right – I do enjoy a good girls’ night & gossip 🙂

I feel like this is a pretty apt description all around. So I’m an introverted, logical, type-A personality – most of the time. It’s who I am! But I’m not this person all of the time. I can be as laid back as necessary to have a good time. I just have to sometimes remind myself that being that way is okay (smile). Most of my friends are the exact opposite of me in the majority of these traits and that’s a great thing! We balance one another and have grand adventures (like this one – smile)! It’s taken me years to come to terms with who I am. I’ve put myself in a lot of uncomfortable and sometimes danger positions to try to change into someone more “socially acceptable.” I don’t know that I changed per se, but I definitely learned plenty and grew as a person. I know what I’m capable of and also where I’m comfortable. Clearly that’s still changing, but I’m less anxious about it now. I consider it one of the perks of growing older, growing into myself (smile).

Now, for some other famous INTJs:

  • C.S. Lewis
  • Jane Austen
  • Gandalf the Grey/White
  • Thomas Jefferson

Random fact:

The INTJ personality is apparently one of the rarest – comprising only about 2% of the US population. Now I just feel special (smile).
