Do you have any idea what INFJ means? If not, then you’re in the right place! Because much like those annoying late night infomercials that you desperately want to turn off but for whatever reason just can’t bring yourself to look away from, I am going to suck you into my vortex of Myers-Briggs like a moth to a flame. Buckle up. You’re diving in head first baby.

Myers-Briggs is a specific personality test that breaks down four main categories of one’s personality: Introvert/Extrovert, iNtuition/Sensing, Feeling/Thinking, Perceiving/Judging. You are one of each of these four categories, but your own personal combination is what makes us all so unique. Of the 16 different combo choices, yours will be surprisingly relatable to you. Most people find it to be uncanny in its accuracy.

As for me, the first time I took the Myers-Briggs test and read the results you could have knocked me over with a feather. It was like they READ MY MIND. Little tiny Borrowers had invaded my grey matter through one of my choice orifices while I slept, documented my thoughts, revealed to the world my weakness for chocolate and mailed the results to Myers-Briggs for my ultimate demise. HOW RUDE!

It was like they had known me my entire life. I was astonished and flabbergasted all at once. At that moment, I fell head-over-heels in love with personality information. Not just my own, but also the information of absolutely anyone and everyone I knew. I was hooked.

Here are links to two free tests.

It’s about 80 questions, so you’ll need a bit of spare time. Not too much, maybe 15-20 minutes. The most important part is to be PAINFULLY HONEST with the test by being painfully honest with yourself. It sucks, let me warn you. I had to admit things to my computer I hadn’t even admitted to myself in years. Answer the questions as to what answer comes NATURALLY to you, not a learned behavior. That will help its accuracy.

As for me, I am an INFJ. “The Protector” as I am known in Myers-Briggs world. I encourage you to find out more about your own personality and enjoy the process. It’s a bit of a learning experience mixed with some fun idiosyncrasies.

After you take it or if you already know, please share! I would like to know! More later on my INFJ world… it’s certainly an interesting one. 🙂
