Day 9|Let's talk personality types.
My Myers Briggs says I'm an INFP. And after reading the description, I would have to completely agree. Here are some traits of INFPs.
Introvert:: composed, self- relent, reserved and thoughtful
iNtuitive:: creative, imaginative, idealistic, and innovative.
Feeling:: empathetic, sensitive, ethical, and authentic.
Perceiving:: flexible, accepting, tolerant, and open- minded.
Your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them. or how they fit into your personal value system. This is me to a tee! I tend view all things according to how I feel about them. However, I think it's safe to say that my feelings aren't always rational.
Their primary goal is to find out their meaning in life. They are idealists and perfectionist, who drive themselves hard in their quest for achieving the goals they have identified for themselves. This one is almost painful to admit about myself. I so desperately want to know what I'm doing with my life, but I have no clue. Once, I make some career goals, I'd love to pursue them; but I've got to discover what they are first!
Although they may be reserved in expressing emotion, they have a very deep well of caring and are genuinely interested in understanding people. At times I can come across as completely apathetic and even heartless but I promise those things are not true. Sometimes my RBF is just not under control, but I'm working on the art of facial emotions!
They can be quite warm with people they know well. In spite of being an introvert, I really do love people and getting to know new friends. It may take me some time to feel comfortable, but just be patient with me.
INFPs do not like conflict, and go to great lengths to avoid it. If they must face it, they will always approach it from the perspective of their feelings. INFPs place little emphasis on who's right and who's wrong. They focus on the way the conflict makes them feel, and indeed don't care whether or not they're right. They don't want to feel badly. This trait makes them appear irrational and illogical in conflict situations.
I've never thought of this but as I read it, it's true. When I find myslef angry with someone, it's because of the way they made me feel; usually it's because they've hurt my feelings. I can be somewhat of a sensitive person. And I think it's because I expect people to think the way that I do -- to value the things I value -- and when they don't I'm hurt. This is something I can stand to work on.
INFPs may be awkward and uncomfortable with expressing themselves verbally, but have a wonderful ability to define and express what they're feeling on paper. YES!! This is a small reason why I started this blog! I love sharing my life with others, but I'm not always the best at doing so verbally, thus a blog was born! And I love my little piece of the internet!
Bonus: J.K. Rowling's an INFP!! #Twinsies
