Because Abigail demanded it, here is another blog. I was prompted by Jenni’s Blogtember for this blog post. If left to my own devices, I would probably just whine about work and no one wants to hear that.
So for this post, I went to this page and did a short personality quiz. The results came back that I was an ISFJ. I was very strongly introverted but the others came back around the 50-40% mark.
It’s interesting to note (well maybe just to me!) that I used to be an INFP. And now I am an ISFJ. The last time I did one of these, I was in high school so it’s almost ten years ago that I did it and I guess we all change.
However, I can’t imagine ever changing from an introvert to an extrovert! The ‘F’ part has also stayed the same. This means that when I have to make a decision I will take into account the feelings of myself and other people, as opposed to what is best logically. And apparently the ‘feeling’ vs ‘thinking’ aspect plays a big part in your career choice.
The ‘sensing’ over ‘intuition’ part has changed though. I would definitely agree that I prefer to look at concrete facts and what is happening NOW when processing things rather than trust a hunch or look at the bigger picture. Although this mark came back as 50% so I guess I could swing either way :)
And apparently I like to ‘judge’ now rather than ‘perceive’. This means that I prefer to have things ordered and structured rather than spontaneous and flexible. I would like to think that I was open to being spontaneous though! I definitely think that I have had to change this aspect of my personality due to work. I have to be very organised and everything must be structured- although trust me when I say this does not come naturally to me!!
And ISFJ people tend to gravitate towards certain jobs such as nursing. So there you go!
