Have you heard of the Myer’s Briggs test? It’s a famous personality test, which I think at best is a great starting point to thinking about who you really are and the situations in which you thrive most. I just found, through Facebook, a free version of the test and took it.

My test results changed from an ENTP to ENFP! Interesting, right?
Extraverted (19/21) Clear
Intuitive (16/26) Moderate
Thinking (16/24) Moderate
Perceiving (16/22) Moderate
Extraverted (E) 89% Introverted (I) 11%
Intuitive (N) 73% Sensing (S) 27%
Feeling (F) 55% Thinking (T) 45%
Perceiving (P) 100% Judging (J) 0%
What’s most noticable from my results is that I’m 100% Perceiving, which means I tend to sense and intuit things over thinking and feeling them. The verbage that’s used to describe the various personalities can be pretty confusing.
I also enjoy that I float between a Visionary and an Inspirer. I’m assuming every type has a very cool title associated with it.
