I'm Rare!

So there's a bloghop going on that I didn't know about until this morning. It's Blogtember and by the looks of the prompts, I need to be a part of this! The prompts are great and are giving me a much needed jump start to writing.

Today's prompt was to take this quiz and post the results. Here are my results:

I actually took the longer version of this test in high school and got the same results, so I guess things don't change. Here are some fun facts about INFJ (which I got from this website)

  • The INFJ type is believed to be very rare (less than 1 percent of the population) and it has an unusual set of traits.
  • Even though their presence can be described as very quiet, INFJ personalities usually have many strong opinions, especially when it comes to issues they consider really important in life.
  • INFJ personalities are drawn towards helping those in need – they may rush to the place of a major disaster, participate in rescue efforts, do charity work etc. INFJs see this as their duty and their purpose in life.
  • INFJs are masters of written communication, with a distinctively smooth and warm language.
  • INFJs need to have some “alone time” every once in a while or otherwise

  • INFJs take great care of other people’s feelings and expect others to return the favor. Unsurprisingly, people with this personality type are very sensitive.

INFJ strengths

  • Determined and passionate.
  • Altruistic.
  • Decisive.
  • Creative.
  • Inspiring and convincing.
  • Very insightful.

INFJ weaknesses

  • Extremely private.
  • Can burn out easily.
  • Very sensitive.
  • Perfectionistic.
  • Always need to have a cause.
INFJ In The Workplace (Peggy, Lynn, Mags, Amy 1 and 2, Christina---can you confirm/deny these? haha)
  • Loathe conflict and tension
  • Highly idealistic, but also very insightful, able to sense somebody’s motives nearly instantly
  • Surprisingly social and eloquent, quickly and easily connecting with their co-workers
  • Popular, friendly and altruistic (however, INFJs need to make sure that their generosity is not being abused)
  • Very serious about their duties and responsibilities, especially if they are strongly aligned with the INFJ’s principles
  • Seek harmony and cooperation
  • Prioritize values and good atmosphere rather than cold facts or ruthless efficiency
  • Need to be able to work alone if they choose to
And, just for fun...two cartoons about INFJ that relate to my life!


So to those that know me, does the sound like me? What is your personality type?

I think INFJ suits you! You're a helper and a giver, and you stand up for what you believe in!
