My Jungian Analysis...Pretty Damn Accurate.

Funny, I always saw myself as an INFP, a perceiver. Apparently, I've changed..

Your Jung personality type Bookmark and Share

What makes you different?

This analysis describes how you prefer to: deal with and relate to people, process information, make decisions and organize your life. It gives you a good overview of your personality and behavior. You can use this information to assess how well your personality might fit a potential employer or type of job.

You about you

The descriptions you chose about your behavior (and who knows you better) indicate that the Personality Type that most accurately describes you is:
    • Introverts tend to be reflective, reserved and private. A popular misconception is that Introverts are shy - this is not necessarily so. They draw their energy from their own thoughts and the time they spend alone. Introverts do not need people around them all the time.
                    • iNtuitives pay more attention to information that is imaginative and original. iNtuitives focus on the future.
                                      • Feelers let their feelings and emotions play a leading role because of their concern for other people.
                                                        • Judgers prefer a lifestyle that is decisive, planned and orderly. They like a life that is organized and controlled.

                                                          Your Jung personality type is stereotyped as The Developer

                                                          An INFJ at-a-glance

                                                          The difficult I do immediately, the impossible takes me a little longer! This could be your philosophy of life. People who know INFJ types well describe them as imaginative, motivated, persistent, purposeful and creative.

                                                          Living a life without pretense or facade, being accepted for who you are, is what matters to you. You prefer to quietly exert your influence. You bring a quiet enthusiasm to all that you are involved in. Creating harmony and working towards the common good for all is one of your key motivators.
                                                          You have a strong need and desire to understand the complexity of human relationships.

                                                          Your sense of empathy allows you to understand and appreciate other's feelings. You believe in, and act on, your intuition and instincts. You make decisions easily and your friends and associates are likely to perceive you as a self-confident and individualistic thinker.

                                                          Your probable contributions to an organization
