What Is My Personality Type | Myers & Briggs Test

Have you ever wondered what category your personality fits into? I have, and in fact there is a way to find out.

Our personalities can be analyzed to fit into one of sixteen categories or types by using the MBTI Instrument.

This tool measures your preferences on extroversion or introversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving. Once you take the test and decide on your personal preferences, it calculates a personality type specific to you expressed as a code with 4 letters.

Personality Types

The 16 types are:

  • INFP
  • INFJ
  • ENFP
  • ENFJ
  • ISTJ
  • ISTP
  • ESTP
  • ESTJ
  • ISFJ
  • ISFP
  • ESFP
  • ESFJ
  • INTJ
  • INTP
  • ENTP
  • ENTJ

INFP. What Is It?

As defined by the MBTI, my personality code is calculated as an INFP. Introversion. Intuition. Feeling. Perceiving. Commonly labeled as The Healer or The Mediator.

If you received INFP as your personality type as well, be proud! This means we are idealistic and free spirited individuals. We tend to follow our hearts in spite of what our social norms dictate. As INFP’s we are deeply empathetic, caring, tolerant, and sensitive. Generally, we are good listeners and non judgmental by nature. We tend to be interested in observing the world and all who inhabit it. This usually leads us to become political or social activists. We become very interested in helping people with their personal growth to overcome their problems to seek a positive change.

We like to bring life, emotion, and light heartedness to otherwise dense situations. Many of us see the world as an adventure and with a sense of wonder, almost childlike. Despite our feeling oriented nature, as introverts we tend to feel uncomfortable with sharing our own deep feelings and emotions. We are private people.

Our biggest struggles as INFP’s are confrontation and vulnerability. To overcome we must consistently push ourselves past our comfort zones. You can do it!

All Types are Equal

It is important to remember there is no best personality type as we are all individuals. The goal is to understand and accept one another.

Psychologist Carl Jung introduced the theory of psychological type in the 1920’s. The MBTI tool was developed by Isabel Briggs Myers in the 1940’s.
