Last week I wrote a post about self-doubt and received so many relatable and encouraging comments. (Thanks! ❤︎ ) One of those comments contained a link to a simplified Myers-Briggs personality test. (Thank you, Emma!) I’ve taken this test before but it was nice to read about my different traits and strengths. It also revealed my weaknesses and how they play a key role in my overall personality. It was a refreshing, informative 30 minutes.
So then I made my husband take the test (#fortheblog).
Turns out we have very, very similar personality types and I find that incredibly fascinating. I love looking into our underlying characteristics and behaviors.
The site I was directed to reveals your personality type and assigns a role. I fall in the diplomat category as “the advocate” and Kyle is “the architect” in the analyst category. My personality type is INFJ (less than 1 % of the populations) and K is INTJ (less than 2% of the population). So let’s talk about what that means…
According to the test (which I agree with), we are both introverts. I highly doubt I need to explain what that means… Long story short, we value time by ourselves and we recharge best when we’re alone.
The second letter reveals one’s mental energy… You can be sensing (S) or intuitive (N). We’re both the latter. While I would consider us generally observant, I agree that we both tend to go off a “gut feeling.”
This is where we differ… While I make decisions and cope with emotions with feeling (F), Kyle responds with thinking (T).
The last element to the personality results is how one approaches work, planning and decision making. We both tend to be judging (J) verses perceiving (P).
If you’d like to take the test you can do so here!
I’m so amused by our results. I urged K to have his employees take the test because I think it’s important to know how people think and react. K’s results were extremely accurate: he’s confident in almost everything he does and he’s very good at making decisions without letting emotions cloud his judgement.
If you decided to take the test (it’ll take less than 10 minutes) let me know what you got and if you agree!!
