    Apparently ~ MY PERSONALITY TYPE IS: MEDIATOR (INFP-A)

    No one can stop you from dreaming!

    TBH in the little personality quiz; I had to select the middle section of Agree << o >> Disagree quite a few times [neutral I presume] as some questions werent clear cut enough: However the results/info describing the Mediator in relation to ones self are very accurate: I guess this explains my advances in anything I put my hands/mind to ~ Always: (Or I am merely just applying the description as I see fit)

    One Example: I am a self taught musician of any `genre` [mostly guitars now] and have always `played by ear` as it turns out from aged 10; and yet out of a total of six siblings; not one plays a musical instrument; except myself of course and which I take very seriously: <--> Long story short:

    In the words of Eric Claptons - Nobody Knows You When Youre Down and Out - Song:

    "Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
    Spent all my money, didnt have any cares.
    Took all my friends out for a good time,
    Bought bootleg liquor, champagne and wine.
    Then I began to fall so low,
    Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go.
    I get my hands on a dollar again,
    I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins.

    'Cause no, no, nobody knows you
    When you're down and out.
    In your pocket, not one penny,
    And as for friends, you don't have many.

    When you finally get back up on your feet again,
    Everybody wants to be your old long-lost friend.
    Said it's mighty strange, without any doubt,
    Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

    When you finally get back upon your feet again,
    Everybody wants to be your good old long-lost friend.
    Said it's mighty strange,
    Nobody knows you,
    Nobody knows you,
    Nobody knows you when you're down and out"

    This song needs hearing as it is not `down and dismal` but rather upbeat and cheerful:
    It pretty much sums everything up and is a life lesson to ones self; and not a complaint: I learned this on my Guitar and a personal cd player along time ago BEFORE I ever knew the words: It was the `music` [sound ~emotion] which attracted me to it: The memory/emotions of which I can recall right now as I locked my bedroom and door; put on the cd-rom walkman and earphones and tuned in many many moons ago:



    Logically I should retake the test and see who I am when I dont use Neutral and compare:

    First reported ISTJ, Ascension. You fit in fine to me. Your written expression is keen. I suspect many feel the same way about not fitting in.

    AriG, check out the OP for visual comparisons. There's usually a break down on the site you tested on, and oodles of information here, or if you prefer videos check these out.

    Hi Paula

    I still can't wrap my head around what the -a/-t means? Beginning to think it might be attention deficit!

    Hi Paula

    IDENTITY: ASSERTIVE VS. TURBULENT

    Our last scale, Identity, affects all others, showing how confident we are in our abilities and decisions. In a way, it acts as an internal sensor, reacting to the input we get from the environment – for instance, success or failure, feedback from other people, pressure caused by unexpected events and so on. Mind and Identity scales are the alpha and the omega of our model, acting like an external shell that we wear in all our interactions with the outside world – we discuss all four possible combinations of these traits in the “Strategies” section of our main theoretical article, but in this one, let’s take a look at what the Identity scale looks like.

    Assertive (-A) individuals are self-assured, even-tempered and resistant to stress. They refuse to worry too much and do not push themselves too hard when it comes to achieving goals. Similarly, they are unlikely to spend much time thinking about their past actions or choices – according to Assertive types, what’s done is done and there is little point in analyzing it. Not surprisingly, people with this trait report more satisfaction with their lives and they also feel more confident in their abilities to handle challenging and unexpected situations.

    In contrast, individuals with Turbulent (-T) identity are self-conscious and sensitive to stress. They experience a wide range of emotions and tend to be success-driven, perfectionistic and eager to improve. They are also more willing to change jobs if they feel stuck in their current one and to spend time thinking about the direction in which their life is going.

    However, while the Assertive variant may seem more positive on the surface, that is not always the case – for instance, Turbulent individuals perform better in certain roles as they push themselves to achieve superior results, while Assertive ones do not care about the outcome that much. Always feeling the need to do more, to have more, and to be more, Turbulent types often forget how exhausting that can be to both themselves and the people around them – but it is entirely possible that this desire to always push themselves just a little further helps many Turbulent types to achieve what they seek to achieve.

    Paula,

    Thank you most humbly. That really helped although I tend to resist being pigeon holed by any test, these results are remarkably accurate. Quite pleased to be turbulent I suppose. Seems a bit more introspective than assertive. You are a treasure trove of information! Thank you!

    I am an ENFP-A. “Campaigner”. I like how this test has the gradients, because I feel like I’ve taken this type of test before where it was more of just a yes or no type response.
    There's no time like the present.

    INFP-A here. A good test, I used to give it in the classroom (some years ago) and it was always surprising how correct it all was.
    51% I and 49% E, I believe sometimes this is called an XNFP.
    I used to be VERY "I", but worked on myself to become more balanced I/E.
    And I like it best this way.
    The explanations on the site were "right on" too.

    I'm an INFJ, some of this I can agree with, some of it I don't.

    For example, attempts to guilt trip me fail. And when I see someone trying to use shame as a tactic, I rebel. Period. It's the lowest emotional energy, just above death.
    I find I have zero patience when someone tries to employ that tactic.

    The cognitive functions are interesting. And I have a better understanding of the process of extroverted feeling, helps explain the intense empathy I live with.

    I would like to understand the last letters better, Judging/Perception, and was disappointed that he didn't explore that more.

    I wonder if anyone else has ever noted the correlation between the Myers/Briggs and Robert Anton Wilson's ~ 8 Circuits of Psychology

    I’ve downloaded the INFJ video and will watch it soon. I’m an INFJ. Same here, I have no patience for those that do guilt. Control of any kind, my spine-y-senses are at the ready.

    Judging vs Perceiving Population Chart



    Judging vs. Perceiving Preference

    [article hyperlinks here]

    Judging (J) and Perceiving (P) are how you interact with the world outside yourself, either in a structured or flexible manner. Judging and Perceiving are opposite preferences. A person’s natural tendency toward one will be stronger than the other.

    Judgers and Perceivers each make up roughly half of the population, with there being slightly fewer Perceivers. Males are somewhat more perceiving than females on average.

    Personality Preferences

    Personality preferences are a way of classifying a person’s natural tendencies. There are four pairs of opposing preferences (for example, Extraversion vs. Introversion) for a total of eight. While all eight are used by every person to different degrees, a person will lean more toward one than the other. Each preference is noted by a single letter (such as E for Extraversion).

    Different combinations of these preference letters make up a person’s Personality Type and Temperament. For example, if a person’s preferences are Extraversion (E), Sensing (S), Feeling (F) and Perceiving (P) then their personality type is ESFP. Similarly, that would classify the person as having the SJ temperament. Preferences along with Cognitive Functions are the core of the 16 personality types.

    You can read about the preference pairs by clicking the articles below to determine for yourself which of each you tend towards. You may also Take our free Personality Test to help determine your preferences and to see charts showing to what degree you prefer one over its opposite.

    Judging vs. Perceiving - Judging (J) and Perceiving (P) are how you interact with the world outside yourself, either in a structured or flexible manner. (also @ post #195)

    Extraversion vs. Introversion - Extraversion (E) and Introversion (I) describe how a person directs their energy either outwardly or inwardly.

    Sensing vs. Intuition - You use Sensing (S) and Intuition (N) to receive and process new information by using your five senses or in more abstract ways.

    Thinking vs. Feeling - The Thinking (T) and Feeling (F) preferences refer to how you make decisions, either by objective logic or subjective feeling.

    I resonated a lot with most everything Arnall said, and some of his insights were new to me, so provided some good food for thought.
    I have an INFP friend, and the description Running Deer provided really fit. (Thanks!)
    Learning never seems to come to an end...
    I grew up with a Fundamentalist Christian Mom, so I learned to armor myself against guilt trips early on.
    But I had internalized some of those ideas about perfection and purity and so had to fight those dragons on an inner level much more than outer, until I became more self-accepting.

    You are such a sweetheart Natalie.

    Such is mortal life on this planet.
