A Little Perspective About Me

Okay, so admittedly, I've been off the radar. Due to work, rekindling my fanfiction days as an author and mainly.....POKEMON GO. I am not gonna lie. I am hooked on the game!

You can read more about that in my previous post. 

Anyway, since I've been silent, I figured I should share a little something about me to make up for it. According to Myers and Briggs' personality test, I am a 1%, one of the rarest personality types in the world.

I am an INFJ. 

(I)ntroversion over extroversion
I(n)tuition over experience 
(F)eeling over thinking 
(J)udging over perceiving 

Pair my INFJ personality up with my left-handedness and you got one of the rarest humans in the world. I am a freaking Mew in Pokemon terms. 

So what does this mean? 

To me, this means I prefer looking at the big picture than worry about the details in between. I look at the vision of a better (or human-less) world and smile. 

It means I am quiet and reserved and if you think otherwise then you are lucky because that means I am comfortable enough around you to let go. You are worthy of my time and more importantly, my energy. However, don't push your luck by inviting me to a party or a gathering of people. I cannot deal with so many people at one time. 

It means I take others into consideration when it comes to decisions whether I want to or not. Such a curse is the gift of empathy. I feel your energy and my own molds to match yours. It, quite frankly, sucks. 

It means I plan early and I absolutely HATE it when plans changes. I will adapt if needed because it is what is required of me (and also apparently I am a "people pleaser"..pfft!) but it doesn't mean I won't curse you under my breath. 

When I checked what career path is suitable for INFJ, this is what turned up and this was how I reacted:
  • Clergy / Religious Work (nope!) 
  • Teachers (possible, the shorter hours and low stress environment is tempting) 
  • Medical Doctors / Dentists (a bit late for that) 
  • Alternative Health Care Practitioners, i.e. Chiropractor, Reflexologist (if you like broken bones and bruises, then okay!) 
  • Psychologists (interesting....)
  • Psychiatrists (ooh, goody. I have access to the fun stuffs) 
  • Counselors and Social Workers (as in suicide counselor?) 
  • Musicians and Artists (nope)
  • Photographers (does an iPhone count as a camera?)
  • Writers (WELL, HELLO THERE) 
  • Child Care / Early Childhood Development (One word. NO.) 
Hm, I might need to relook my career choice.

Okay, this posting is taking on a negative turn so let's brighten it up. To quote the, "NFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types."

See, I told ya. Mew.

I think it's laughing at me.
Ps: The test was taken three times, on three separate occasions,: 2013, 2015 and most recently in Aug 2016 to test accuracy of personality results. I got INFJ all three times.
