I had to do this for school and I think it's pretty accurate. So.
Personality Type: INFP
I – Introversion preferred to extroversion
N – iNtuition preferred to sensing
F – Feeling preferred to thinking
P – Perception preferred to judgement
Of the many factors that contribute to a successful future, an understanding of
Personality Type is among the most useful.
While interests and skills change during the course of a person's life, the one thing
that does remain constant is an individual's Personality Type - the innate way each
person naturally prefers to see the world and make decisions. And although all
individuals are unique, people of the same type share enormous similarities in the
kinds of academic subjects and careers they find interesting, and the kind of work
they find satisfying.
By understanding the role Personality Type plays, people can gain important insights
into their educational, career, and relationship needs. And because people of
different types often communicate in very different ways, counselors and teachers can
learn which strategies work most effectively with each individual student.
Understanding you, Saralyn
People like you are rare. You are a unique and creative person who tends to march to
the beat of your own drummer. Private, quiet, and socially cautious, only friends who
know you very well may ever see your more playful and expressive side. In fact, it
takes awhile for you to feel comfortable with new people so you may often be
described as somewhat reserved. But inside, you are a person of great feeling and
care deeply for the people and causes that are dear to your heart. Your personal
values are most important to you so you always try to make choices that you feel good
about. You are rarely willing to compromise on anything that is really important to
you. You can sometimes become overwhelmed by the intensity of your emotions, and your
relationships need to be free of conflict or tension for you to remain in them.
You are also a highly imaginative person and may enjoy expressing yourself through
the arts. But since you are also somewhat of a perfectionist, you may have trouble
hearing constructive criticism without taking it personally. You are quick to
understand the deeper meaning of things, and often have a fresh or original take on
events and people. Since you prefer by nature to act spontaneously, you resist too
many rules or too much structure. And you may also have trouble staying organized or
making decisions. At heart, you are a non-conformist and must find the path that is
really right for you, even if it means striking out alone.
Note: Based on our assessment, your personality type is "INFP."
