A while ago at work our office decided to do the Myers Briggs personality test – just for larks. I’m sure there’s long, complicated, observed versions that are more accurate but we just used something free and online.
It was interesting to find out how my workmates fitted into the test and where I did. I turned up as an INFJ, which you can read about here – I found the ‘characteristics of INFJs’ the most interesting.
I used to find personality tests deeply frustrating – I hated being put into a box or thinking that anyone could pinpoint me to one of sixteen types of people. But we all get older and our spirit for fighting irrational things fades and now I just find the whole thing quite interesting.
Have you ever tested yourself?
