Ever wondered how is your personality in a more broad way? Why sometimes we have certain character that are hard to understand? Why there are some people keep messing, bushing, acting in a different way like you do? That is because we are born with different traits. Some of the traits can be change, but somehow we have to learn to accept.
There are few ways you can find or learn about who you are, one of it is by doing personality test. The one test that I found almost accurate about myself (over many tests I have done in my life) is the 16personalities test. The 16 personalities was developed using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) by Isabel Briggs Myers.
Take this 16personality test if you haven’t.
So I got this :-
ADVOCATE PERSONALITY (INFJ, -A/-T)
MIND – This trait determines how we interact with our environment
ENERGY – This trait shows where we direct our mental energy
NATURE – This trait determines how we make decisions and cope with emotions
TACTICS – This trait reflects our approach to work, planning and decision-making.
IDENTITY – This trait underpins all others, showing how confident we are in our abilities and decisions.
INFJs put a lot of energy into identifying the best system for getting things done, and constantly define and re-define the priorities in their lives
There are times when I got so frustrated when I couldn’t get things done the way I wanted. I tend to blame myself for every mistakes I made, and be very cautious when deciding things.
INFJs operate within themselves on an intuitive basis which is entirely spontaneous. They know things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand.
This explained why I don’t like people to remind and explain me to do something which I already knew, by intuition. So don’t keep repeating the same thing. If I didn’t answer. That simply means I understood.
INFJs get “feelings” about things and intuitively understand them. INFJs are protective of their inner selves, sharing only what they choose to share when they choose to share it. They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive.
There are 100 thoughts on my mind every time I am writing, wanted to share all of it but didn’t. Because naturally I would want to keep something private to me. You can’t know me that well if we are friend for 2 or 3 days.
INFJs hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. INFJs are concerned for people’s feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well.
Those who are close to me, you are in my top 10 person on my list. Trust me, I cared to those who I can share everything with. And I will try not to hurt them, because I keep a few friend as the closest to me, losing them is the last thing I want.
Being an INFJ, how do I feel?
I am different, no one understands me
The fact that I can almost understand what people feel or thought, being so close like a psycho but I am not, thus I feel no one can understand my feelings. I always want things to go by my intuition and the thoughts of seeing things in a bigger view are actually making me worry so much. I can neither say yes or no to any new ideas because it is so hard to make decisions when I am thinking too much.
Being Creepily Observant
I can detect any details if you are talking to me. I can observe someone in a far way and have many thoughts of the person. Seriously I am not a creeper like that. I like to analyze every detail, every pause you take when you talk to me because I am looking through your mind. I trust my intuition, so do not lie in front of my eyes.
Saying No is Hard
It is hard to say no when you always want to keep your relationship. I always want to please people and when I don’t, I will felt completely wrong for a long time.
I have lots of things on my mind, and I may want to keep it with myself. When the right time comes, I will come to you and spilled out everything.
Getting things Orderly and Perfectly
I go by planning than improvising. When I already planned every detail, I hate it when something occurs out of plan. I have my own standard for my own accomplishment like having all books arrange in order or having all my clothes folded and stored perfectly colour coded.
Quiet Can Have Different Meaning
I can be seen quite when talking on small talks, because that bores me easily. I love to have more deeper conversation because like my inner thoughts, my outer part plays the same, thinking and evaluating. Sometimes when I am quiet is just because your presence is too loud and I am judging you inside my head.
Whatever I feel I should be thankful for some of the trait which I am blessed to have with. Understanding myself is a lot harder than understanding others. There are things I wanted to change about myself like not over thinking, be more open to others, having more friends, stop think about others and start thinking of my own needs as well as accepting myself.
Have you taken the test? What is your result? Is there any other personality test you want to share?
