What's your personality type?

I am an INFJ
The Protector

You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity. Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is. You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience. You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.
In love, you truly see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow. You enjoy relationships as long as they are improving and changing. You can't stand stagnation.
At work, you stay motivated and happy... as long as you are working toward a dream you support. You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.
How you see yourself: Hardworking, ethical, and helpful
When other people don't get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable

A little Myers-Briggs test for ya. And here are the letter guides:
E/I - Extrovert/Introvert
S/N – Sensory/Intuitive (concrete thinker/abstract thinker)
F/T – Feeling/Thinking (which are you more inclined towards?)
P/J – Perceiving/Judging (impulsive/scheduling)

The strange thing about all of this is that some point in the last 10 years, my personality has changed. And I can completely see it and have noticed the change, especially since leaving college life 6 years ago. Which is, in part, why I did the test. Just to see what I actually was on paper. I remember doing this test my senior year of high school and I was an ESFJ. Definitely more social and outgoing back then, but in recent years the extrovert in me has dwindled and I am definitely more introverted now. I thrive on deep, close relationships rather than having lots of casual friends. Small talk is not my forte. And now I am an abstract thinker? Really? Interesting. So which one are you? I’m interested. Here is the link to test:

I was an ESFJ, the caretaker. That was cool. Have not done that in a long time and can't remember what I was. I think I was close to the same.

I was an ISFJ, the nurturer. I think, from taking this test before, that I am almost right in the middle of an I and an E. I like my alone time, but I am definitely charged up by being with others. Interestingly enough, the careers I would be good at included psycholoy...hmmm, maybe I should think about doing that. Isn't it funny that all us girls are J's...we like our schedules!
