Who/ What Are You?

1. Introversion or Extroversion

Every person has two faces. One is directed towards the OUTER world of activities, excitements, people, and things. The other is directed inward to the INNER world of thoughts, interests, ideas, and imagination.
While these are two different but complementary sides of our nature, most people have an innate preference towards energy from either the OUTER or the INNER world.

Extraverted Characteristics

  • Act first, think/reflect later
  • Feel deprived when cutoff from interaction with the outside world
  • Usually open to and motivated by outside world of people and things
  • Enjoy wide variety and change in people relationships
Introverted Characteristics

  • Think/reflect first, then act
  • Regularly require an amount of “private time” to recharge batteries
  • Motivated internally, mind is sometimes so active it is “closed” to outside world
  • Prefer one-to-one communication and relationships

Q1: Are you more of an introvert or extrovert?

2.  Sensing or Intuition

The Sensing (S) side of our brain notices the sights, sounds, smells and all the sensory details of the PRESENT. It categorizes, organizes, records and stores the specifics from the here and now. It is REALITY based, dealing with “what is.” It also provides the specific details of memory & recollections from PAST events.

The Intuitive (N) side of our brain seeks to understand, interpret and form OVERALL patterns of all the information that is collected and records these patterns and relationships. It speculates onPOSSIBILITIES, including looking into and forecasting the FUTURE. It is imaginative and conceptual.

 Extraverted Characteristics

  • Act first, think/reflect later
  • Feel deprived when cutoff from interaction with the outside world
  • Usually open to and motivated by outside world of people and things
  • Enjoy wide variety and change in people relationships
Introverted Characteristics

  • Think/reflect first, then act
  • Regularly require an amount of “private time” to recharge batteries
  • Motivated internally, mind is sometimes so active it is “closed” to outside world
  • Prefer one-to-one communication and relationships

Q2: Are you more of the sensing or intuitive type?

3. Thinking or Feeling

The Thinking (T) side of our brain analyzes information in a DETACHED, objective fashion. It operates from factual principles, deduces and forms conclusions systematically. It is our logical nature.

The Feeling (F) side of our brain forms conclusions in an ATTACHED and somewhat global manner, based on likes/dislikes, impact on others, and human and aesthetic values. It is our subjective nature.

 Thinking Characteristics

  • Instinctively search for facts and logic in a decision situation.
  • Naturally notices tasks and work to be accomplished.
  • Easily able to provide an objective and critical analysis.
  • Accept conflict as a natural, normal part of relationships with people.
Feeling Characteristics

  • Instinctively employ personal feelings and impact on people in decision situations
  • Naturally sensitive to people needs and reactions.
  • Naturally seek consensus and popular opinions.
  • Unsettled by conflict; have almost a toxic reaction to disharmony.

Q3: Are you more of a thinker or feeler?

4. Judging or Perceiving

Judging (J) style approaches the outside world WITH A PLAN and is oriented towards organizing one’s surroundings, being prepared, making decisions and reaching closure and completion.

Perceiving (P) style takes the outside world AS IT COMES and is adopting and adapting, flexible, open-ended and receptive to new opportunities and changing game plans.

Judging Characteristics

  • Plan many of the details in advance before moving into action.
  • Focus on task-related action; complete meaningful segments before moving on.
  • Work best and avoid stress when able to keep ahead of deadlines.
  • Naturally use targets, dates and standard routines to manage life.
Perceiving Characteristics

  • Comfortable moving into action without a plan; plan on-the-go.
  • Like to multitask, have variety, mix work and play.
  • Naturally tolerant of time pressure; work best close to the deadlines.
  • Instinctively avoid commitments which interfere with flexibility, freedom and variety

Q4: Are you more or a “judge” or perceiver?

      Haha, nice way of putting it!
      I’d just say: you”re perfect just as you are.

      For a more detaild “explanation” on what INFP (your “code”) actually means you might want to check out http://www.personalitypage.com or perhaps take a very comprehensive test on http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

      Over the next couple of days/weeks I’ll talk more about the different “types”.

      🙂

    What YOU are is more than obvious (to me)..
    Hmm.. I am still not sure whether I should give you the pleasure of “knowing” who/what I am.

    I will think about it

    *walking away whistling*

    1. DeMorrieaux says:
