Me, cause you wanted to know more!

Miss Hass posted something on her blog today about personality tests, and I couldn't resist taking it myself. I hate personality tests because I never seem to get the same response every time, because the questions are never the same twice. Which is funny, because that totally fits today's results.

From the results-
ENFPs are introspective, values-oriented, inspiring, social and extremely expressive. They actively send their thoughts and ideas out into the world as a way to bring attention to what they feel to be important, which often has to do with ethics and current events. ENFPs are natural advocates, attracting people to themselves and their cause with excellent people skills, warmth, energy and positivity. ENFPs are described as creative, resourceful, assertive, spontaneous, life-loving, charismatic, passionate and experimental.

And last but not least, me and relationships. (everyone please take notes while looking for the perfect man to send to me)
ENFPs take their relationships very seriously, but also approach them with a childlike enthusiasm and energy. They seek and demand authenticity and depth in their personal relationships, and will put forth a lot of effort into making things work out. They are warm, considerate, affirming, nurturing, and highly invested in the health of the relationship. They have excellent interpersonal skills, and are able to inspire and motivate others to be the best that they can be. Energetic and effervescent, the ENFP is sometimes smothering in their enthusiasm, but are generally highly valued for their genuine warmth and high ideals.
A problem area for ENFPs in relationships is their dislike of conflict and sensitivity to criticism. They are perfectionists who believe that any form of criticism is a stab at their character, which is very difficult for them to take. Conflict situations are sources of extreme stress to the ENFP. They have a tendency to brush issues under the rug rather than confront them head-on, if there is likely to be a conflict. They are also prone to "give in" easily in conflict situations, just to end the conflict. They might agree to something which goes against their values just to end the uncomfortable situation. In such cases, the problem is extended and will return at a later time. The ENFP needs to realize that conflict situations are not the end of the world. They are entirely normal, and can be quite helpful for the growth of a relationship. They also need to work on taking criticism for what it is, rather than blowing up any negative comment into an indictment against their entire character.

Generally, the ENFP is a warm and affirming creature who is very interested and able to have an intense, meaningful, close relationship with their mate.

Although two well-developed individuals of any type can enjoy a healthy relationship, ENFP's natural partner is the INTJ, or the INFJ. ENFP's dominant function of Extraverted Intuition is best matched with a partner whose dominant function is Introverted Intuition.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we finally have the right personality label for me!


  1. Hmm. I'm ENTP (originator) though I'm not crazy about the questions because there were at least a half dozen where I wanted to click 'both'. alas there was no option for 'both'.

    So I guess it's good that I clicked 'indecisive' when it was available.

  2. Erin, I haven't talked to you in years. I ran across your blog and took the personality test. It has been a long time since I've taken the Meyers-Briggs. Anyway, thanks for posting! Tons of my friends have taken it now AND I'm realizing why I'm unhappy in my job. It's not's me!Thanks again for posting it.
