Not my Personality...

So, as part of this blogging challenge I was asked to take this "short" personality test.

First of all.. I don't think more then 20 questions is "short"

Second of all... I have strong feelings about the answer.
It said:

Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test™
Your Type
Introvert(11%)  Sensing(12%)  Feeling(12%)  Judging(89%)
  • You have slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (11%)
  • You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
  • You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
  • You have strong preference of Judging over Perceiving (89%)
 I really disagree with most of that... but perhaps I am being "judgmental" - just for the record those who know me - know I am the LEAST judgmental person ever.

When I looked it up further it said..
ISFJs are traditional, loyal, quiet and kind. They are very sensitive to other people's needs because they are very observant. They have rich inner thoughts and emotions. They value stability and cultural norms. They are very adept at giving attention to detail. They do not seek positions of authority. 

Well fair enough I have been known to be more quiet and observant, I am reserved on what feelings and personal information I share, and with who.  However, considering I have spent the bulk of my professional life in management positions of one kind or another... or owning my own business, I don't shy away from conflict and I certainly do seek and enjoy authority.

I think the lesson here is - personality tests are crap. You are who you are, love me or hate me. I am who I am, and I am more then happy with the person I am.


  1. Ha! I hate personality tests too! We are the same type though!

  2. So funny! Go figure that were the same... :)
