so i’m back from minnesota. and let me tell you.. i had a BLAST! i missed all those teamers so much. it was awesome to see everyone. (and get lots of hugs! heh. i love hugs!) pictures will be up soon.
i think i’m gonna go to bed instead of finish the homecoming pictures tonight though… i just spent the last several minutes taking yet another personality test. (it reminds me of team life… since we all took those tests a couple times while on team) so i confirmed that yes, i am still and ENFP. (33% extrovert; 12% intuitive; 50% feeling; 22% perceiving) what does that mean you ask?
“The Champion Idealists are abstract in thought and speech, cooperative in accomplishing their aims, and informative and extraverted when relating with others. For Champions, nothing occurs which does not have some deep ethical significance, and this, coupled with their uncanny sense of the motivations of others, gives them a talent for seeing life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil. This type is found in only about 3 percent of the general population, but they have great influence because of their extraordinary impact on others. Champions are inclined to go everywhere and look into everything that has to do with the advance of good and the retreat of evil in the world. They can’t bear to miss out on what is going on around them; they must experience, first hand, all the significant social events that affect our lives.”
“Friends are what life is about to ENFPs, moreso even than the other NFs. They hold up their end of the relationship, sometimes being victimized by less caring individuals. ENFPs are energized by being around people. Some have real difficulty being alone , especially on a regular basis.”
“ENFPs like to tell funny stories, especially about their friends.”
“ENFPs are both “idea”-people and “people”-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of “help”) and be liked and admired by other people, on both an individual and a humanitarian level.”
“ENFPs are pleasant, easygoing, and usually fun to work with. They come up with great ideas, and are a major asset in brainstorming sessions. Followthrough tends to be a problem, however; they tend to get bored quickly, especially if a newer, more interesting project comes along. They also tend to be procrastinators, both about meeting hard deadlines and about performing any small, uninteresting tasks that they’ve been assigned. ENFPs are at their most useful when working in a group w ith a J or two to take up the slack.”
read more here and here. and take the (somewhat short) test here.
speaking of “procrastinating”…
i should go to bed now. i hope you enjoyed a deeper glimpse into the personality of me. goodnight.
*edit* so i found a note from a time when i took a similar test earlier and i was a ESFP with that one. interesting.
also interesting that part of the above article(s) were written by “joe butt.” dang that must have been a rough childhood….
