From Mr. Spock to Captain Kirk: ISFJ

Okay, I'm trying to get my head around my new personality result: ISFJ. Somehow I've morphed from an ISTJ. I'm attributing the slide to having children and working with readergirlz.

"ISFJs are traditional, loyal, quiet and kind. They are very sensitive to other people's needs because they are very observant. They have rich inner thoughts and emotions. They value stability and cultural norms. They are very adept at giving attention to detail. They do not seek positions of authority." My Personality Info

So, the biggest bummer is that I am no longer like Mr. Spock. I am now like William Shatner. Okay, that's William NOT actually Captain Kirk. Thankfully. I could never wear those tight pants.

On the plus side, I match Louisa May Alcott. But also I could gag over being matched with Melanie Hamilton in Gone With the Wind and Ophelia in Hamlet. Seriously?

My only comfort right now is matching Martha Brockenbrough. She totally rocks. So, there is hope.

But I just may have to take the test again. I really did like matching Spock...

You need to read "Ophelia" by Lisa Klein - a retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia's POV and she DOESN'T DIE. It will make you feel much better about the comparison. (And it's an excellent book for teen girls btw.) Klein also just came out with "Lady MacBeth's Daughter" and has a book set in Queen Elizabeth's court due for the fall.

If I sound like I'm making a Readergirlz rec...I am!! ha!

I'm an ISTJ! Haha, I didn't realize that Darth Vader was one too!

Lorie Ann Grover said...

I read it, Colleen! You are right. And I have Lady Macbeth's Daughter right here. :~)

A "T," Priya! Go rock your Darth Vaderness! And your inner Spock. *sigh*

I am an ENTJ. Big surprise, right? :)

Poor Ophelia.

Martha Brockenbrough said...

Lorie Ann, I'll wear the tight pants if you will. xoxo!

William Shatner's pants may be your size, Martha. :~O

Erin said...

I'm INFP...along with Tina, and Audrey Hepburn, and Peter Jackson... :) :)

Lorie Ann Grover said...

A "P!" Miss Erin! You and Tina. :~)

What I wouldn't give for a group "pants" shot! Lorie Ann, I can see you as a feeler! That makes sense (though probably borderline, right?).

I think Janet is an INFP also - I'm INFJ.
