INFP: Blog-tember

Let’s talk personality types. Introverted? Extroverted? Unsure-troverted? 😉 If you know your Myers-Briggs type, tell us about it! If not, you can take this similar test and share your results.

When I took the  Carl Jung personality test, the results said that I’m an INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving). I’ve taken tests in the past that say I border on being an extrovert. I’m soo close. Yet so far away.

The following description is pretty spot on. It’s totally me. I want to be creative in whatever way I can. When I’m at work, I can’t wait to get home and write something or do a scrapbook page. My job as a nurse aide is not creative in any way. I feel like this when it’s almost time to go home.


This is what Wikipedia says about INFP’s : INFPs are driven by a strong sense of right and wrong and a desire to exercise their creativity, even if only behind the scenes. Their weaknesses include sensitivity to criticism, poor organization, and low assertiveness. Keirsey referred to the INFPs as Healers, one of the four types belonging to the temperament he called the Idealists.[2] INFPs are one of the rarer types, accounting for about 4-5% of the population.[3]

  1. ISFJ

    You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (11%)
    You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
    You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
    You have distinct preference of Judging over Perceiving (67%)

    I’m a shy extrovert – so those results make sense to me. And I’ll judge a situation rationally instead of using my instinct… yeah, that’s kinda spot on, too! I don’t want to be ruled by my feelings, so I over compensate!

    Fun test!

    1. A shy extrovert. Genius! Me too!! 🙂 I am probably ruled by feelings. Darn it.

  2. Aw Holley, I haven’t yet met another INFP. I didn’t realise we’re only 4 – 5% of the population and considered rare. I like that 🙂

    1. I don’t know any INFP’s either. We’re very special. 🙂
