Ha Ha. It is me. I like mashup and I like new things. That is true.
"I have officially taken every personality profile known to man. Other than telling me that I'm an ENFP, Independent-Working
Blue-Green Lion-Otter hybrid, the one thing they have in common is unanimous agreement that I do have a personality."
The results are back and are presented above. I appear to be an ENFP, which stands for extraversion, intuition, feeling, and
perceiving. But, the third category was a close call, and I might actually be an ENTP, i.e., extraversion, intuition,
thinking, and perceiving.
One axiom of the MBTI is that personality types are stable, more or less. As this idea goes, the psyche sets up basic
patterns of gathering, interpreting, and acting on information quite early, by age three or four.
"Despite the bonds we feel for each other — thanks to common interests that bring us together like sports, hobbies, movies,
food, books, and television — our approach to learning and consumption is driven by all kinds of different emotional and
intellectual responses. This was a key lesson of the psychology course."
"So in taking the test, I’ve always found myself to be an ENFP (Extroverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiver) and according to the
nicknames given for each personality type, I’m the Inspirer, Catalyst, or Champion. (Secretly, these nicknames really feed me
my ego). So the point of this post is to show you how completely true of me it is that I am an ENFP. Let me preface all of
this by noting some key components of an ENFP."
Well, maybe a little. I knew he was very outgoing and that I was more introspective and less vocal. Over the years we’ve
learned how to complement one another, but it has and still does take a lot of work. A lesson from the Myers-Briggs
personality typing before we got married would have been extremely helpful.
You see, he’s an ENFP, and I’m an INTJ. Which basically means that on all but one measure, we’re incredibly opposite. And
both very creative.
Dave and I decided to take the imfamous Jung & Myers-Briggs personality test. Come to find out, we share the exact same
personality — Give or take a few qualities of course…The only bad thing is that it says it is hard to share the positive
qualities at the same time…EEKKK!! We both can’t be super idealist ALL the time, right?… So, take a look, understand us
better and see if the test reads you right.
"We both function from our N, but he's so extroverted that he actually thought when we first started dating that 'giving me
space' meant he sat on the other end of the couch!
He has trouble understanding why I'm not as emotional and into feelings as him and I have trouble tolerating his tendency
towards self-pity. But we make it work in our own way. I call him when I've had a bad day for sympathy and he calls me when
his car breaks down. (He knows to call his mother when he needs sympathy. He tells me I give too much advice and not enough
As ENFPs go, I'm fairly rational and practical. This is possibly due to the fact that I surrounded myself with male
physicists in college. Fairly certain they were TJs.
I keep thinking that if my ESTJ manfriend knew just how emotional, sensitive, and illogical the other ENFPs were, he would
realize... how amazing I truly am? how good he has it? Wait... that doesn't even make sense. The more logical thing would be
for him to go out and find himself a pretty INTJ. She'd be able to intuit the feelings he's not expressing, and, as an
introvert, she'd always let him be the center of attention.
"i recently took a myers-briggs personality test as part of a minnversity leadership program. completing the assessment, i
wondered about test-retest reliability, response biases, and whether carl jung was looking over my shoulder.
i get nervous about any psychological test (well, professor uggen, we don't usually recommend immediate hospitalization, but
in your case...), but i tried to answer the questions honestly. my results classified me as enfp, which indicates:
extraversion (rather than introversion); intuition (rather than sensing); feeling (rather than thinking) [ouch.]; and,
perceiving (rather than judging)."
"om"-nee-scop'ic - 1. A broad perspective on the sweet details. 2. Seeing the magical in the mundane, the sublime in the
subtle... OK, so I made that up. But here you'll find small bites of big ideas by a medium-sized mind - stories drawn from
across space and time to reveal a fresh new view of science and the natural world. If an ENFP's musings on science and nature
with a smathering of gushy ramblings is not your thing, feel free not to read on..."
Anyway, the description of my personality type was so frighteningly “me” that I’ve decided to post it here for my own sake. I
was surprised to read that such a tiny percentage of people fit into the ENFP temperament type.

Are you an ENFP?
"Education Connection is broken down into several categories. First, if you are unsure of what you might want to do they
offer a self-assessment quiz. Okay, I’m a fool for quizzes: It’s one of the first thing I do when I open up a magazine, and
I love those books that offer different personality tests and then go on to tell me how wonderful, creative and yet moody I
can be. So this morning I took the self-assessment quiz and I found out that I am an ENFP."

"esterday I took a Facebook version of the Myers-Briggs Personality test. It says I'm an ENFP (Extraversion, iNtuition,
Feeling, Perception). Personally, I think it gets pretty close to who I am! The description reads, "You are warmly
enthusiastic and imaginative. You see life as full of possibilities. You make connections between events and information very
quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns you see. You want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give
appreciation and support. You are spontaneous and flexible, and often rely on your ability to improvise and verbal fluency."
"I took a personality test and found out that I am (still) an ENFP personality type. The test is a shortened version of the
Myers Briggs personality test and you can take it for free here."
"I have never been a big believer in astrology. I am not convinced the location of stars at the moment of your birth is that
important to your personality. I’m a Virgo, but I don’t feel that defines me that much. But some years ago I discovered a
‘labeling’ system that was based on the actual behaviour of a person, whose result was much more significant: the (Jung)
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI):"
"I’ve always loved doing assessments about personality. I enjoy using the results as a lens for self-reflection, and, like
any good ENFP, I know these things are flexible and I do not feel defined by or boxed in by the label. It just helps to have
an external structure. The recent buzz around Linda’s horsenality/personality match project has had me musing on this subject
for a while, but of course it’s not until I start writing that things actually become clear."
According to a Slate article which analyzed the personality types of the leading Presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton is
an ESTJ (Guardian; "The Supervisor"), Barack Obama is an ENFP (Idealist; "The Champion), and John McCain is an ESTP (Artisan;
"The Promoter"). No wonder I groove with both Clinton and Obama. I’m both idealistic and pragmatic when it comes to
2. A Don Juan. He gauges various virtues and talents in the people he meets and cannot hold back from reporting his
observations to them with great enthusiasm. Often other people mistake his display of emotions for his real feelings, which
earns him the reputation of a Don Juan. In fact, he is quite conservative in his feelings, attached to a close circle of his
friends, whose opinions hold great weight for him and totally determine his mood, behavior, and knowledge. If he really is a
