No, I'm not swearing at you. Don't worry, I'll never do that.
I just came back from a training meeting in Phoenix, where we had to do that Myers Briggs personality test again. You know, that one that you've probably done in college, that supposedly tells you if you're an introvert or extrovert/ planner or procrastinator (which really makes for great excuses whenever you're late for a project) among other personality "types"?
As I've done this test quite a few times before, all I had in mind when I went into the training was "make it a painless 8 hours, pleaaaase", and "finish up early so I can take the earlier flight home".
But I have to say that the company did a good job this time picking a trainer that was able to make this all relevant and useful. Let's say I didn't catch the earlier flight and I didn't mind at all (which is a huge compliment for any training meeting).
So, you must be wondering, what personality type am I? We answered a few pages of Yes/No questions on our preferences (i.e. not what we actually do, which is learned, but rather what we prefer to do, which is innate), and got rated on 4 dimensions. And the results are: *drum roll...*
I'm an ENFP:
Extrovert ("gregarious" and "expressive")
iNtuition (original thinker/ dreamer)
Feeling (an illogical, empty-headed bleeding heart, *eek*; P.S. I actually score only mildly favoring "Feeling" to "Thinking")
Perceiving (an indecisive procrastinator; surprise, surprise).
Which for the most part looks fairly accurate. I don't think it's even changed at all since my first "test" in college, which ironically told me I probably should NOT go into the field I'm in right now (science). But my inner ENFP tells me life happens for a reason and things will always work itself out. As in having a science career then finding second wind in a creative one and thriving in juggling the two. Wow, see how accurate it is! :P
I'd love to know what "type" you are!
If you haven't done it before, here's a free version of the test you can try online. Don't forget to share here :)

By the way, I was tagged by the talented artist/teacher TAMS to divulge 7 "fun strange little facts" about myself (if you ask! :D). I guess my Myers Briggs personality would count as the first one? I need to think some more about the rest. More to come :)
