Personality Profile

I love tests that are scientifically proven to give you an overview of your personality, etc. I took a test in highschool that determined which of 4 colors you were. Each color identified a personality type. While I don't remember all of the colors nor the name of the test, I do remember that I was "blue." Then, when I was working at UWG we did a strengths test that determined our top 5 or 6 strengths in the workplace. That was interesting; I was the only one within the office who had the strength of being "futuristic." I guess it plays to my planning obsession. Those results play well into the results of the test I took today.

This morning I took a Myers-Briggs personality test for work. I took it twice thinking I was answering the same way the 2nd time, but apparently I wasn't because I got a slightly different result. I, personally, feel that each pretty closely describes me so I think I'm borderline between being an extrovert and introvert, because that was the one initial that changed between each result.

I can't paste into my blog, but here are the links to the personality and career profiles:


And, get this: I'm married to an INTJ!

The main difference between Kenny and I is this:
ESFJ's "need approval of others to feel good about themselves." ISFJ's "need positive feedback from others. In the absence of positive feedback, or in the face of criticism, the ISFJ gets discouraged , and may even come depressed." INTJ's (Kenny) "is not overly demonstrative of their affections, and is likely to not give as much praise or positive support as others may need or desire."

Yea, perfect match! But, we accept and love each other for our differences, right? :)

What's your personality type?
