With the abundance of time the world seems to be allowing me, I’ve been taking time in the mornings to meditate. This meditation has been crucial for my overall mental well-being during this challenging year. I’ve been searching my soul, talking with God, and reflecting on my well-being with deeper intention. I am a firm believer that my purpose on Earth is to share God’s grace and become the best reflection of His goodness as possible. My morning meditations have been eye-opening to areas I see a need for more effort and work to reach the ideal person I wish to become.
Memorado has an interesting personality test going viral around the Social Media world. It is a psychometric test designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. Take it to see what type of personality you portray.
The test is based on four preferences for personality types:
- Where, primarily, do you prefer to direct your energy? E or I (Extroversion or Introversion)
- How do you prefer to process information? S or N (Sensing or Intuition)
- How do you prefer to make decisions? T or F (Thinking or Feeling)
- How do you prefer to organize your life? J or P (Judgment or Perception)
I was given a INFJ, meaning I am mostly introverted, process information through intuition, prefer to make my decisions based on feelings, and organize my life via judgement. I guess this is the least common personality type in the world… So I’m a bit of a rarity. Here is the full description of me:
INFJs are kind, mindful, complex and highly intuitive people. This is the most rare personality type of all, only 1 percent of the population has it. INFJs are lovingly named The Protectors (hence the Captain America picture the test provided for me!)
They like to organize their outer world in categories and priorities they never stop redefining. However, they have a great intuition and deal with their inner life very spontaneously. They perceive and understand things very intuitively and are very rarely wrong about their intuitions. This dichotomy between their inner and outer life may result in INFJs being less organized than other Judging types.
Because of their great instincts, INFJs understand people and situations very easily. They often feel when something has happened to some of their friends of family members even if they cannot really explain to themselves how they perceived it. Those strong intuitive capabilities may lead them sometimes to stubbornness and ignoring other people’s opinions since they trust their instincts above everything else. This attitude should not be perceived as arrogance as INFJs are perfectionists and think they should always improve themselves and the world around.
INFJs set up a strong value system for themselves and always care about living in accordance with their values and ideals. They are warm and easy going as long as they do not have to compromise their values.
Warm and caring, they hate conflicts and will avoid hurting people. They will generally internalize their anger which can be a source of stress and health problems for them.
In the work place, most INFJs show up in creative and independent positions. They are good at art and sciences where they can use their intuition at best. They are generally bad at dealing with details and prefer working on the big picture.
INFJs are natural nurturers, protective and devoted. They make loving parents and build strong bonds with their children.
