four little letters

and for a lighter side to blogging....which myers briggs initials are you?

i used to think personality tests were bogus, just like online dating services and infomercial workout equipment. yet i was talking with my pal Lauren who was sharing how much freedom her myers briggs test gave her...it was like putting into words the things she herself knew for so long but no one else could seem to understand. and the coolest part? it has brought harmony and affection into her family relationships. that makes is very un-bogus, if you ask me.

so i took the test and found that i am an INFJ...an introvert who goes off intuitions and loves depth and organization. i caught myself laughing out loud at some of the descriptions like "experiences health problems when under a lot of stress", "champions of the oppressed and downtrodden" "knack for fluency in language", and "the INFJ under stress may fall prey to various forms of immediate gratification" because they are so true! thankfully, my immediate gratification usually only involves chocolate or ice cream at its extreme. it is fascinating to see how much of my path is directed in part by my personality.

that being said, i'm off to check my eharmony matches and bust out the thigh master. make sure you leave your myers briggs initials.

oh my, that would defeat the purpose of actually needing to talk to a person to get to know someone...wait, that sounds strangely familiar...internet dating services!! ding ding ding ding ding!!! i would like to know it about a lot of people though.

oh we are the proud infj's. at just 1 percent of the population we are the most rare (what a silly thing to brag about--but fun). but i seriously must have read a different profile than you! a lot of those things, hm, i don't know about me. i certainly DO NOT have a tendency towards fluency in language! there are some fun profiles if you google infj--the first one that comes up, portrait, and the infj--the mystic one.

LOL! that's it luke, we have to join all the internet dating sites we can. you definitely fit the mystic.

I'm an INFJ! I'm an INFJ! You, me, and Luke can have a club. We are rare. And awesome.

isn't it interesting how infj's find themselves around other infj's? here's to feeling misunderstood together.
