Like most of us probably have, I’ve taken a personality quiz one or two times and a while back I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment (aka a serious personality quiz). Basically, whether you believe in it or not, knowing your type can help you in your day-to-day adventures, like school and work, overcoming stress and anxiety, and just in general understanding more about yourself.
and guys, I’m on a total mbti kick right now.
I recently reread my little result (that I kept in my phone notes) and decided to dig a little deeper and by that I mean searching my result in Pinterest.
BOY DID I GET INSPIRED.
Obviously, not everything will be exact, but it’s absolutely insane how much I find myself relating to my type (but not that insane because it is a personality/psychological test).
My type is ENFP: extraversion, intuition, feeling, and perceiving.
Here’s a little about it from their site:
With a tendency to move quickly from one project to another, people with preferences for ENFP are willing to consider almost any possibility and often develop multiple solutions to a problem. Their energy is stimulated by new people and experiences.
Okay, so that’s not that exciting and inspirational (though it’s nice to read), so here is a jumble of quotes, sayings, notes, and a collection of some past favorite photos that make me pumped to be who I am.
Does an hour’s work in a week and a week’s work in an hour.
Being the life and soul of the party but having no one to play with because you tend to make friends with introverts.
In the end it’s a miracle that any ENFP is employed at all.
Many things interested her, and nothing satisfied her entirely.
“I promise I won’t forget.”
“Oops, I forgot.”
“Wait, what was I just talking about?”
“I just got this new idea.”
“Sorry, I got distracted.”
“What do you mean I can’t learn 10 different languages at once?”
I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.
The good new is, I’m pretty much who I say I am. The bad news is, I’m pretty much who I say I am.
AND WHEN ENFP’S ARE STRESSED:
Take a walk
Talk about ideas
DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF
This is just a portion of all the fun stuff I’ve found. Granted, a lot is just “for fun” and not drawn up by professionals, obviously, but it is SUCH A BOOST for morale and creativity, which is exactly what I need at this time in my life.
If you are in a slump, I highly recommend taking this little test (it’s free, otherwise you know I wouldn’t have done it) and looking into your type. IT’S SO INTERESTING.
