A few weeks back I took the Myers-Briggs personality test. I scored as an ESFJ. I’d also taken this same test in 2001, but I don’t remember what my results were. I do remember that they were right down the middle. Earlier today, I was perusing an old blog and found that I’d written this post in March of 2009. Totally cracked me up!
I just took an online version of a similar albeit much shorter Myers-Briggs test and these are my results.
“From this table, you can see that the two highest scoring types are ISFJ and ISFP. This doesn’t rule out the other types. But those are the two that are closest when we ‘pattern match’ your questionnaire results with each of the 16 personality types.”
I couldn’t get an actual copy of the table so I just typed out the results.
And that pretty much explains it.
My head hurts. I wanted to write down some more of my thoughts, but I think I just need to go to bed. The thoughts will be here tomorrow. Believe me. They rarely leave me alone. Here is a brief overview of where my thoughts are headed.
If you look at my personality results you will see that I am both a feeler and a thinker. I feel things. Deeply. Then I try to figure out why I feel them. I rarely allow myself to feel without analyzing it. That usually doesn’t bother me at all. This is exhausting though. I’m just not satisfied with continuing to think something because it’s what I’ve always thought. Because it’s what I was taught. Because it’s what I’ve always believed. Not when I see so many people living contrary to what I was taught. Some of them have a hard time, but there are those who love their lives and are thriving without God. Of course there are those who are thriving because they are living completely for Him. But then I see others who have tried to live for Him their whole lives and always seem to be struggling with one thing or another. There are happy and sad people in both camps. And I want to know why. How people can be happy and hopeful without Him. Because those people are out there. I’ve met them.
I am so glad that I am not the same girl I was in 2009. I have come a LONG way in what I know. I still feel and think equally, but I am much more stable now! AT least that’s what I’m telling myself! Shhhhh…
