Personality Traits

I love online quizzes. It’s kind of an obsession really. When I have free time at work, you’ll find me (once I have exhausted pinterest) on Buzzfeed taking all the quizzes to see how accurate they truly are.

Yesterday, I took the Myer Briggs Personality Type Indicator Test (by clicking the test name, you can too!) I’m usually a little skeptical about these quizzes because they always get at least one major part of my personality wrong. But I have to say, this fit almost perfectly into who I am, just by answering around 10 questions.

My results were as follows (I deleted a lot of the descriptions just to save some space and reading time)

MBTIResults: ISFJ – The Nurturers

ISFJ (INTROVERTED SENSING FEELING JUDGING)

As an ISFJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you takes things in via your five senses. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit into your personal value system.

ISFJs are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people. … People value ISFJs for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others by their firm desire to believe the best.

ISFJs have a rich inner world that is not usually obvious to observers. They constantly take in information about people and situations that is personally important to them, and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate, because the ISFJ has an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems.

ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness, and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they’re not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they’re shown a concrete way why its better than the established method.

ISFJ IN SUMMARY …

Quiet, friendly, responsible, and conscientious. Committed and steady in meeting their obligations. Thorough, painstaking, and accurate. Loyal, considerate and remember specifics about people who are important to them. Concerned with how others feel. Strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home.

I definitely feel like this represents who I am as a person, especially in the weakness areas. I totally repress my feelings and sometimes take things too personally. In the description for “altruistic” they mention that ISFJ’s usually let things slide and I definitely do that.

On the flip side, I also agree with a lot of the strengths too: hard working. patient, loyal, enthusiastic.

Overall, I was completely shocked to see how well this test actually fit my own personality. I guess it’s a good thing, since it’s actually scientific and not just a silly “Which hot male celebrity should you date?!” quiz.

If you have the time today, click the link and see if your results match your personality as well. It literally takes less than 10 minutes. The first question will already be on the webpage when you open it, you just have to scroll down a little bit 🙂
