INFJ vs INFP vs ME
While listening to Luke play in his crib (did he not get the memo that I sent about taking an afternoon nap even if you sleep for ten minutes in the car?), I took a test over at 16 Personalities.
Actually, I took it twice.
The first time I got INFP and the second time I got INFJ.
In the past, I've almost always ended up as INFJ, so maybe I just stick with that one.
Or maybe (just maybe) I don't fit perfectly into one category of a personality test. Even though I spent the last twenty minutes trying to figure out which one is more me, I came to the conclusion that none of those are just me to a "T."
Honestly, I wanted the personality test to tell me who I am. Why do I talk too much but am still an introvert? Why do I have trouble expressing (or feeling!) feelings but am very intuitive and sensitive to others' feelings? Why do I feel frustrated with little details? Why isn't everyone as excited or passionate about x, y, z as me? Why do I often feel misunderstood or misread? Why am I so dang stubborn and hard-headed? Why can I dish out criticism so easily, but I can hardly handle someone looking at me wrong?
I have a lot of questions about who I am. Honestly, I don't always feel super comfortable in my own skin and feel frustrated when the way I am wired gets tangled up and trips me up.
But, here's what I want to explore in the next few days: believing beautiful about every part of how I was made and wired.
I want to be freer with who am I and more comfortable with the pieces of me that don't seem as lovely or appealing as someone else's qualities. I want to stare the lie that says, "You're not enough or you're too much" in the face until it gives up and goes away. I want to be thankful for the way I was made. And I want to believe in the beauty of it.
Questions of the day:
What's your personality results? Do you feel that the personality pegs you to a "T" or does it not quite fit who you are?
