getting to know me…

nikked this test from kijjohnson‘s LJ:

Your Score: INFJ – the counselor

You scored 18% I to E, 47% N to S, 33% F to T, and 31% J to P!

Your type is best summed up by the word “counselor”, which belongs to the larger group of idealists. Only 2% of the population share your type. You are so empathic that you often know what others need before they know themselves. You are a complex person who can deal with complicated issues and people, almost prefer to, as you love problem solving. You can be something of an idealist or perfectionist, and should try to take yourself a little less seriously.

You are a supportive and insightful romantic partner, encouraging your mate to have dreams and work hard to make those dreams come true. Because you are so creative, you have a wealth of ideas to help them toward those goals. You need harmony so much that you are driven to resolve conflict quickly, as long as the terms don’t violate your ethics. You feel the most appreciated when your partner admires your creativity, trusts your inspirations, and respects your values. It is also vitally important that your partner be open and emotionally available – in other words, that they be willing to share themselves completely.
Your group summary: idealists (NF)
Your type summary: INFJ

    I’m the same. Gee, there seem to be a lot of people in that 2% category 🙂 FWIW, I think it describes you better than it does me!

    yeah, we all seem to be in the rare majority.
    phhtt…i have problems with pop personality inventories. they are basically cute party games but they are sometimes taken seriously by people who should know better.
    About 10 years ago, Villanova wanted all staff to take the Myers-Briggs so that we could better deal with our colleagues. argh! excuse me? I was one of very few who refused to take it. I was hounded for a brief period of time, during which I witnessed all my co-workers “analyzing” each other based on their published scores.
    “No wonder I don’t get along with so and so, he’s a …”
    I simply told people that I thought the whole idea of personality testing in the workplace was highly intrusive and since it was voluntary, I simply was not going to play. I did tell my boss that if it became mandatory, I would quit.”
    They continued this practice for a few years and did have one other round of “testing” which I refused to participate in as well. After that one, the novelty seemed to wear off and was eventually forgotten.
