Dear Family,
 
I thought I would post this here as I have taken it before and you may find some insight into your personality.  Take it a year from now and see how you have changed hopefully with the support of your family at HW and your own determination to overcome your illness.
 
This test is a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or the Kersey Temperament Sorter. These are based on the work of Carl Jung and provide us with a four digit code that tells us some things about how we act, think, and feel about ourselves and the world.
 
 
Don't be afraid, you won't have to share as it is for your eyes only :)
 
If you want to share that is fine.

Interesting! I love tests, and have always enjoyed reading Jung.

Here's what part of the description says about me:

"To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know.

INTJs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake. "

Not altogether inaccurate. I was struck by how many times I kept feeling I was contradicting myself throughout the test. That's the sign of a good survey.

I can't get over how well that thing described me: the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you're really bored, you guys know me pretty well by now. Read the whole thing and see if it doesn't apply: http://typelogic.com/intj.html

The romantic stuff even fits, although I can flirt if I'm in the mood to. Otherwise it's dead on (shoulda got married when I had the chance, haha).

I'm going to show it to my friends, too.

Thanks for this link, Kitt. It's great because it's good at showing all the personalities and all their strongest points. It also explains why some people seem to be misconstrued a lot. If we all read about the different personality types in depth like this, people might be more tolerant of others.

HI,

I took the test and I am an Isfj......so Lyn I have a bit of judgemental but I don't think that is bad it helps us stay alert and also probably came from the work we did.

I seem to be a Protector

The primary desire of the Protector Guardian is to be of service to others, but here "service" means not so much furnishing others with the necessities of life, as guarding others against life's pitfalls and perils, that is, seeing to their safety and security. There is a large proportion of Protectors in the population, perhaps as much as ten percent. And a good thing, because they are steadfast in their protecting, and seem fulfilled in the degree they can insure the safekeeping of those in their family, their circle of friends, or their place of business.

Protectors find great satisfaction in assisting the downtrodden and can deal with disability and neediness in others better than any other type. They go about their task of caretaking modestly, unassumingly, and because of this their efforts are not sometimes fully appreciated. They are not as outgoing and talkative as the Providers, except with close friends and relatives. With these they can chat tirelessly about the ups and downs in their lives, moving (like all the Guardians) from topic to topic as they talk over their everyday concerns. However, their shyness with strangers is often misjudged as stiffness, even coldness, when in truth these Protectors are warm-hearted and sympathetic, giving happily of themselves to those in need.

What can I say?????? Hello I am Johnny Cash?

Good to know and my therapist would be so proud. Years ago when I took this test I was an ESFJ (Extroverted, Sensing, Intellectual, Judging - Judging does not mean being judgmental it means relying on my own judgments). Which basically meant that I relied on my intellect to deal. Now I score an ESFJ (Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging). One of the things my therapist said about me is that I move quickly from feeling to intellectualizing things. Well, not any more!

Dear Lady,

It is a bit spooky to know the test is pretty accurate, even when you know it yourself to have it validated is different.

Yes your therapist would be proud of you. yeah
