I took the Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test. This test is based on Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ typological method to assist in understanding personality type. What a person receives from this test is a 4 letter formula which helps them learn about their personality type. The test also helps them understand what career or occupation they might be interested in and what jobs would use their personality traits. I was surprised at my results and it helped me understand myself a little better.
I am classified as an INFP (Introverted Intuitive Feeling and Perceiving). INFP’s tends to look at the world with rose colored glasses. They see the good in everyone. They think more with their heart rather than with their head. They have a sense of wonder and a good imagination. Sometimes the imagination can become too real to them and they suffer great disappointment when they find out it is not real. They sometimes reflect on problems for so long that they take action too late to do anything to help.
Introverts usually prefer to work alone or with a few close friends. They are usually considered to be reserved or shy. Introverts tend to reflect on decisions instead of just jumping into a situation.
Intuitive tend to look at the big picture then look at the facts. They are not hands on they would rather think through a problem and reflect on new possibilities. They look at new ways to do things even though they don’t know how they will initiate the new ideas. I am about one percent more intuitive than sensing so I tend to go between the two personality traits. I do believe I have the gift of interpreting technical information into laymen terms, which is the intuitive personality trait.
Feeling people appear to be caring warm and tactful to others. They think more with their heart than with their head. They weigh problems more on what the person having problems cares about and what the point of view’s are of the people involved. They are more concerned with values and what is best for all involved. They have great concern for others and are compassionate. They have difficulty telling the hard truth to someone. They can also be seen as too indirect, idealistic and oversentimental.
Perceiving means to take in information. A person with this personality trait likes to stay open to new information, sometimes they wait so long they miss making decisions when they are needed. The closer a deadline gets the more stimulated they get. They tend to mix work with play. They are laid back and like to keep plans to a minimum. They tend to work in bursts of energy.
I feel like all of this really describes my personality. The only part I disagree with is sensing and intuitive. I am a hands on person. I do like to think things through and look at both sides of the problem. So I feel I am a little of both not just intuitive.
According to Friedman and Schustack: Jung theorized four functions of the mind sensing, thinking, feeling and...
