who are you?

in honor of throwback thursday, i'm pulling one out of zee old archives for ya today!

let me just start out by telling you that i took the myers briggs test for the first time when i was fifteen. i was dual enrolled and attending a local community college getting credit for highschool and college classes. being in the 10th grade, i was trying to figure out what i was good at and what i might want to study once i graduated from highschool. so i took the test, which i think was really helpful for me as a highschooler to understand a little bit more about my personality. i took the test again during my senior year of college. i was preparing for interviews and searching for internships and didn't really know how to communicate about my strengths and weaknesses, so i took the test again and had all sorts of material to look through about my personality type. the test layed those strengths and weaknesses out for me in a way that was very helpful when interview time came around! the great news is, each time i've taken this test, i've received the same results. so at least i'm consistent if nothing else! :)



the best friend showed me this and i LOVE it. i'm currently reading the harry potter series (i know, i love kid books) because i've seen all the movies and was told the books are so much better...which is almost always the case. so who am i? dumbledore! i'm an ENFJ.

so what does that mean? ENFJ stands for "extrovert, intuitive, feeling, judging."
here's some info about ENFJs:

"living in the world of people possibilites, they enjoy their plans more than their achievements.  they get excited about possibilites for the future, but may become easily bored and restless with the present." // this is totally me. i'm a planner and a dreamer...like rapunzel (who i would obviously be if i were a disney princess...)

"ENFJs are charming, warm, gracious, creative and diverse individuals with richly developed insights into what makes other people tick." // i feel like i've almost always been able to read and understand people really well.

as an ENFJ, i love people, spending time with them, and getting to know their story. i highly value people and get invested very easily. this happens not only in real life, but also with ficitional characters. for example, i love doctor who. i know, i'm a total nerd and i'm okay with that. so i found out my favorite characters were going to die and was trying to explain to a friend how upset i was about it. they did not understand until i exclaimed that it felt like my best friends were about to be killed off!!! dramatic, i know. calm down, megs. but really, i wish i could be friends with fictional characters in real life. that would be the best!

i am a huge emotional feeler. hence why i get so attached to fictional characters and people in general. i cry or get teary-eyed at least once a day. this could be because of something sad, something sentimental, something happy, or something exciting. it could be a movie scene that gets me, a cute youtube video, or a song. you never know. with my super planner personality, i've got to be a little unpredictable sometimes! ;)

i absolutely hate conflict and have had to learn how to handle it better over the past few years. i get really shaky and nauseous and would rather hide in a hole in the ground than deal with the present situation. super healthy...NOT.

i am a planner to the core. this isn't necessarily a negative characteristic. afterall, the world does need some of us to be planners. however, i have had to learn to go with the flow more often, be flexible, and be more spontaneous. it's good for my soul :)

as much as i love personality tests and how much they reveal about myself, i would like to say that i don't think anyone should be put in a box. you may have some small character traits of other personality types and that's okay. i certainly do. that's one thing i love about people in general: we are all SO different and it's through our differences that we can help each other grow and learn.

HAVE YOU TAKEN A PERSONALITY TEST?

LOVE THIS! I recently finished reading all of the books and now I'm obsessed with all things HP! I always have trouble with the Myers Briggs. I'm mostly an INFP but occasionally, I'm an INPJ. Just depends on the day! :-)

I love all things personality tests! I never really knew a lot about them until last year, when one of my friends told me about the test. Now, I love reading up on the different types and how/what makes everyone tick. Like you said, I don't think anyone can be put into a "box", but it's crazy how all of this makes sense and perfectly describes us! And I love that even when you may be the same "type" as someone, you still have your differences. All that to say, I am an INFJ. Which is apparently the rarest of all types?? Whenever I do take the test, I usually bounce between INFJ and INFP, but most of the time, I'm the first. Anything and everything I've read about INFJs makes perfect sense to me. And being "The Counselor", yeah, that name alone fits me. ha! I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to my INFJ-ness! (http://www.pinterest.com/jesselyse88/infj/)

the only personality test i have taken is the color code and i am split a bit down the middle of blue (nurturing) and red (leader, driven by power)

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha! conflict is just not my friend. i get so nervous. haha.
oh but yes, all the feels.

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha! sometimes i think i should be an ENFP, but i think most days i'm an ENFJ :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i feel like people who are INF's or ENF's have varying aspects of J's or P's! because i'm the same way. :) going to check out your board now!

Megan McIlvaine said...

oh nice! i have not taken a color code test. i will have to check it out!
