One day I took this personality quiz. It’s a famous one apparently. My brother, home from college, told me I needed to take it. I guess people have been using their personality letters as hashtags. I still don’t understand this hashtag thing…I’m pretty sure I use #love for everything.
Any who, it’s a pretty in depth personality test. My results? INFP, oh wait, #INFP… A.K.A. I’m a “Mediator”. Who knew that only 7% of people who took this test are mediators? I surely didn’t. As I read the many, many pages of information about this personality type, I started to agree out loud; “yup….oh goodness….hello, that’s me….oh boy”. Here’s what stood out to me:
“If they are not careful, INFPs can lose themselves in their quest for good and neglect the day-to-day upkeep that life demands.”
“Their unshaken belief that all people are inherently good, perhaps simply misunderstood, lends itself to an incredibly resilient attitude in the face of hardship.”
“INFPs often take their idealism too far, setting themselves up for disappointment as, again and again, evil things happen in the world.”
“… it’s as though INFPs like the idea of human contact, but not the reality of social contact.”
“INFPs take the time to understand those they care about, while at the same time helping them to learn, grow and change.”
These are only 5 sentences out of an 8 part explanation and although I didn’t agree with every section, the parts I did agree with provided me with this sense of reassurance of who I am and a possible reason for why I am the way I am.
Take the quiz (link below) and let me know what you think! I’m still skeptical. Anyone could relate to any personality in some sense, but if you go in with an open mind, you may just find out something new about yourself!
