Jung/Meyers-Briggs Personality Tests

Over the years, more than a few times, I have felt like Im some kind of multi-dimensional round peg being squeezed into a three dimensional square hole. Initially, I thought everyone felt the same way as I did. But recently I have discovered that I’m one of 16 personality types that make up the human race.

Know your "Type"

After doing a few of the different ‘Jung’ personality tests that are freely available on the net. I have discovered that my personality type is INFP. INFP’s are referred to as Dreamers or Idealists. When I read the ‘data’ on INFP, it communicated to me on a level that I never thought was possible. To my surprise, the ‘data’ addresses my ‘feelings’ accurately. My ‘diagnosis’ of INFP put a lot of my anxiety at rest by providing me with the knowledge that I am just one of many INFP’s in society.

Insight

Knowing now that I am an INFP and understanding what that means, allows me to now see why some previous relationships have failed. Why I always felt uncomfortable in certain situations. Certain ‘negatives’ or ‘character flaws’ or ‘inconsistencies’ about myself that i’d identified, ended up unfortunately being the standard INFP character attributes. But the knowledge of this allowed me to forgive myself for those detected flaws.

Strengths and Weaknesses

INFP’s crave harmonious relationships with others. But, more often than not, find themselves defending from personal attacks, where no personal attack was ever intended. INFP’s cant take critism in any form. INFP’s will always take a critism personally. Which can spur us to uncharacteristicly loud vocal outbursts as we protest some imagined injustice. However Idealism is seen everywhere by INFP’s. Resulting in the INFP themselves becoming highly critical of existing structures without remorse.

Acceptance

Before realization and acceptance of my INFP status. I had been harbouring the thoughts that my reoccuring inconsistencies had created a pretty lonely future for myself. I seemed to be ‘set apart’ from those around me. Knowing I am one of 16 personalty types allows me to ‘let myself off the hook’ for not being perfect. I now begin to understand what drives me. It is a huge preasure release for me.

Do the test youself?

Thanks for all the fish..

I’m thankful to the various websites that offer up these free tests. Because through them, I was finally able to understand most of my motivations and idiocyncrasies, and because of that, I now think I’m better equipped to deal with them when they next arise. Corny as it may sound.. I seem to have discovered some kind of ‘inner peace’ since my INFP awakening.

INFP’s dont market themselves very well. We don’t like self promotion. I’m a webmaster. I have a few domains. Create content etc etc. But when it comes to self promotion. I simply FAIL..

I get stressed even trying to create promotions. I simply just don’t do it. Preferring to “rest on my laurels” and let the people “find” me.

Well after years of inaction on marketing.. I’m starting to see the “error of my ways”. I need to promote myself. Even tho I don’t like it.

Should we all cross-link?? This is the purpose of the posting. Should we all cross-link??

We are all INFP’s and we probably have similar passions on similar subjects. Being as we are so idealistic.

Here are some of my INFP Friends URL’s

Why am I an INFP?

Why am I an INFP? Some people have claimed that they can get different results based on ‘how they are feeling’ or ‘depending on whats going on in their lives’… Interesting thought…

Issues in my private? life affect me at a level only a ‘true blue, dinky die, fair dinkum, no bullshit’ INFP could understand.

Mental Mutilation

It’s the mental ‘self-mutilation’ that INFP’s perform on themselves that I have no answer for.

INFP’s need to be in a loving and caring relationship with someone who really does value them. To be in a relationship with someone who’s commitment is highly questionable creates the ‘mental mutilation’ I am referring to.

Self Centered

I realise that I am quite self centered in many ways. I try not to be. Especially in a relationship. But I guess I pretty well ‘fail’ in this regard.

If I think I have the love, respect, and trust of those around me. I can relax. Finally the driving preasure to be in a happy environment is ended. In my happyness I tend to become too self absorbed. Thinking everything is fine in ‘the land of Oz’ I try to concentrate on other things. Like finding work. Or creating webpages. Which in the process absorbs a lot of my time and ends up annoying the hell out of those around me.

So the circle continues..

Rolling with the Punches

I think the main difficulty in a relationship with an INFP is that perhaps as a personality we ARE capable of change.

Change bought about by the re-inforcement of a loving partner perhaps?

Less than perfect relationships extract their toll from the INFP.

But dont make me "feel" bad..

I have an ‘invisible’ line in the ‘moral’ sand. Once this ‘invisible moral line’ is crossed by my partner. I loose it. Completely. I become totally inflexible. I demand that the ‘line’ be ‘uncrossed’. I listen but refuse to ‘take in’ anything that isn’t related to ‘uncrossing’ the line that has been broken.

This ‘invisible’ moral line. Is almost un-explainable. But is mirrored in how I treat my partner.

I think to myself. How ‘dare’ they say that to me. They have no respect for me. Am I worthless is their eyes? What have I done to be treated in such a manner? Do they have someone they would rather be living with? Why have they done this? Don’t they care how they make me feel?

All these questions and more flash thru my mind. Over and over. My ‘mental mutilation’. I ask each question. But mostly receive unexpected replies. Accusations that I am at fault? But refusals to give answers that would calm the situation.

Make it stop

Slowly under these conditions I change from a rational caring person to one that just wants this kind of pain to be extinct.

At those moments I can happily thow it all away.

I feel betrayed, dismayed, and just want it to stop. Which of course it doesn’t. Even if I get away from the cause of the issue. My mind keeps whirling around and around. Making me go back time and time again. To say the things that have ‘popped’ in my damaged INFP mentality.

Later...

Later. When I calm down. I realise that the world didn’t come to an end. The critism that was levelled at me wasnt the end of everything.

Thats when I feel so sorry for the stupid way I have acted. I realise that Im an INFP. That doesn’t help much. Now that I’m calm.

It would be nice to ‘become’ something other than INFP.
