A new personality for the new year!

Thanks to Em, I just retook the Myers Briggs Personality Test on the MyType Personality Application on Facebook. Eek! I've changed! I'm like Mr. Spock!

Has this happened to anyone else? I used to be an INTJ and now am testing as the ISTJ. I am the Duty Fulfiller. Ha! Sound right, my rgz team? :~)

"Serious and quiet, interested in security and peaceful living. Extremely thorough, responsible, and dependable. Well-developed powers of concentration. Usually interested in supporting and promoting traditions and establishments. Well-organized and hard working, they work steadily towards identified goals. They can usually accomplish any task once they have set their mind to it."

So be warned by my strengths and weaknesses. (I'm 100% judging. Who is ever 100% anything? Stand back!)

ISTJ Strengths

● Honor their commitments

● Take their relationship roles very seriously

● Usually able to communicate what's on their minds with precision

● Good listeners

● Extremely good (albeit conservative) with money

● Able to take constructive criticism well

● Able to tolerate conflict situations without emotional upheaval

● Able to dole out punishment or criticism when called for

ISTJ Weaknesses

● Tendency to believe that they're always right

● Tendency to get involved in "win-lose" conversations

● Not naturally in-tune with what others are feeling

● Their value for structure may seem rigid to others

● Not likely to give enough praise or affirmation to their loved ones

Here are careers for me:

Possible Career Paths for the ISTJ:

  • Business Executives, Administrators and Managers
  • Accountants and Financial Officers
  • Police and Detectives
  • Judges
  • Lawyers
  • Medical Doctors / Dentists
  • Computer Programmers, Systems Analysts, and Computer Specialists
  • Military Leaders

So, there you go. Turns out one of my bestie friends is my adviser, and I'm hers. My daughter's boyfriend is my enigma. Yep. My older daughter is my neighbor and my younger is my counterpart. Off to get my hubbers to take the test. What are you? Regardless, "Live long and prosper."

YOU are so a DUTY-FULFILLER! But you are also much more joyous than Mr. Spock.
