In one of my classes the other day, we had to take the Myer’s Briggs Personality Indicator Type Test. Ittells you where you are on a scale between Extraverted and Introverted, Sensing and Intuitive, Thinking and Feeling, and Judging and Perceiving.
I got an ENFP which is Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving.
After you take the particular test that I took they give you a huge packet of information regarding your personality type, and mine was SPOT ON. It felt like I was reading a horoscope, except more scientific.
As an ENFP it says that I think that life is full of possibilities, which I 100% agree with. It also said that I want frequent affirmation, which I laughed out loud at because it’s so accurate. I constantly need people telling me I’m doing okay, and need confirmation that people like me and the things that I am doing. ENFP’s are enthusiastic, warm, imaginative, and make quick and confident decisions. Other than the confident decision part, I agree with all of it. I can be really indecisive, so sometimes I mentally flip a coin and just pick something to get it over with, doesn’t mean I’m confident in my decision though!
In the packet, they also give you a lil graph of how much you prefer each.
As you can see, extroverted was all the way to the end of the scale, 30/30, which is absolutely no shock to anyone. I LOVE being the center of attention, I love when people know who I am, and I love being around people. The other weekend, I visited my best friend (hey Chinthu), at her school, and I kept introducing myself as “Hey, I’m Sarah, I don’t go here, but I’m important.” Now part of that was influenced by my good friend Captain Morgan, but part of it was me genuinely wanting these people to get to know me and be friends with me. I 100% am energized by being around other people, I need constant attention. I’m like Tinkerbell; if I don’t have love and affection I die. I am dramatic as hell.
The other three are all slight and moderate preferences, which didn’t shock me. When I read what each meant and what sensing, thinking, and judging meant, I understood that I can definitely tend to change how I am dependent on the situation.
All in all this test is wicked cool, and it’s even cooler to do it with friends and see what they get and compare. There a couple girls in my sorority that have the exact opposite preferences as me, ISTJ, and we still get along just fine! One of my roommates has the same preferences for Intuition, feeling, and perception, however, she’s an introvert.
At this point, you’re probably wondering what the hell is up with the title of this post. WELLLLLL, if you Google your personality type you can find celebrities with the same personality type. I am the same as Ellen, Jennifer Aniston, Jerry Rice, and The GOAT Tom Brady. SOO basically this is just the confirmation I needed that Tom Brady and I would be BFFs.
