Personality Test

Jung, Myers, & Briggs


Have you ever taken a personality test?  My friend Janine is a Psychology major, and she got me, Justin, and her boyfriend (also named Justin!) to take a Jung Typology test-aka the Myers-Briggs test.  Each of our results were dead on; it was pretty surprising.  

I was an ENFJ.  After a quick search, I found that "ENFJs are friendly, energetic, and imaginative.  They tend to see the best in others and often put their organizational skills to good use facilitating relationships and looking after the emotional needs of those around them.  They are passionate about serving others and enjoy creating supportive and harmonious environments.  They are excited about possibilities for positive development, and have a talent for creating innovative solutions to problems facing people.  They appreciate everyone’s unique contribution to the world, and take care to treat others with dignity and respect.  Charming and friendly, ENFJs are often excellent communicators.  They enjoy getting to know people, finding it easy to connect with others.  ENFJs tend to have strong values and have no difficulty sharing their opinions and ideas.  ENFJs are loyal and desire deep and genuine relationships.  They are quick to devote themselves entirely to helping a friend and are hurt deeply when the sentiment is not reciprocated.  ENFJs are responsible and conscientious.  They value structure and procedure, often using their developed organization skills to clearly define responsibilities and keep others focused and on track.  They readily take the initiative and strive to set a good example for others to follow.  ENFJ is one of the less common types in the population.  ENFJs make up 3% of the general population, 3% of women, and 2% of men.  Famous ENFJs include Oprah Winfrey" and supposedly Barack Obama.  (more here)
