16 Personalities: INFP

12:00 AM

Just as getting to know others is important, getting to know is possibly more important.  It's difficult to know what you want to do, what you like and dislike, or who you want in your life if you aren't familiar with yourself.  I've always been interested in personality types and astrology.  It's interesting to read descriptions about INFP personalities or those born under Leo.  Even if you don't agree with everything they say about you, you have to remember that these descriptions actually cover millions of individuals and it's not as if they're going to be absolutely true anyways.  They're general descriptions that are up to your interpretation, but sometimes you read them and see something that you totally relate to, that you couldn't exactly put into words.  I've been reading about my INFP personality, and I thought it would be interesting to share what I've learned from 16 personalities with all of you.
1 / Only 4% of the population identifies as INFP!

2 / Oh yeah, INFP stands for Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Prospecting.  This website also tells me that I'm turbulent.

3 / Apparently introverted individuals prefer solitary activities as opposed to group activities, thinking before speaking instead of thinking while speaking, and feel exhausted after interaction.

4 / We're apparently really good at communicating and with language in general, which makes us enjoy things like writing (hence the blogging).

5 / INFP individuals feel exhausted and upset by all of the bad in the world, especially when they can't fix it.

6 / Intuitive means we're easily absorbed into ideas and we focus on our intuition.  I've preached intuition and the unpredictability of what might happen way too many times to even count.

7 / Some of our strengths: idealistic, harmonious, open-minded, creative, passionate, dedicated.

8 / And our weaknesses: too idealistic, too altruistic, impractical, dislike data, take things personally, difficult to get to know.

9 / In relationships, we tend to create scenarios and replay them frequently.  We want perfect relationships and soulmates, and we think that couples can make each other better and happier with each other.

10 / We aren't good at arguments, and since we tend to take things to heart, we tend to overreact to perceived negative statements or situations.

11 / If you're feeling, you probably follow your heart and you are definitely sensitive, which isn't always fun for everyone.

12 / You could say that we like the idea of socialization and friendship, but the actual things actually exhaust us.

13 / No seriously, it might physically exhaust us to the point of needing a break from the world after extended social interaction.  This happens me all the damn time.

14 / To be prospecting means people with this trait tend to be more relaxed about their work and might even relay on improvisation to get things done.

15 / One of the suggested career paths for people with this personality type: social work.  Looks like I'm on the right path!

16 / Turbulent is a description I've never seen, but it means that we are self-conscious and goal-driven.

Like what I did there, providing 16 facts from the 16 personalities site?  What personality type are you?  Do you enjoy reading things like this to get to know yourself better?
