As part of my new job, I've had to participate in a lot of (very long) staff orientation meetings, but they've been surprisingly fun.
My favorite one was about communication and in it I (re)took the Myers Briggs test and remembered why I think these tests are so cool. I just think the concept of understanding self and how that translates into effective communication is fascinating, but I digress.
I found that I am an ENFP.
Here's a quick description:
- Curious, creative and imaginative
- Energetic, enthusiastic and spontaneous
- Keenly perceptive of people and of the world around them
- appreciative of affirmation from others; readily express appreciation and gives support to others
- Likely to value harmony and goodwill
- Likely to make decisions based on personal values and empathy with others
- Usually seen by others as personable, perceptive, persuasive an versatile
After discussing my personality a little bit more, but and I was happy to learn that, professionally at least, I've learned to compensate for my weaknesses like my tendency to feel a little bit scattered, have trouble saying "no," thus feeling over committed and work with deadlines--which was very encouraging. It surprised me that most of my previous supervisors all described me as detailed oriented and well organized, even though that's not naturally my thing.
I really enjoy looking into my personality and other people's personality and seeing how they fit together for a greater story. I love it.
