ISFJ - Personality

Took a personality test today... Paul did it the other day and now I did it today. And I think it is right on for a lot of stuff with me. Here is the link for where we took the test. Enjoy :)

Some key points from that I agree with are me...

- They are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people.

- They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people's feelings.

- They constantly take in information about people and situations that is personally important to them, and store it away.

- ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain.

- They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they're not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they're shown in a concrete way why its better than the established method.

- ISFJs learn best by doing, rather than by reading about something in a book, or applying theory. For this reason, they are not likely to be found in fields which require a lot of conceptual analysis or theory.

- Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ.

- The ISFJ is extremely dependable.

- More so than other types, ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people's feelings.

- They do not usually express their own feelings, keeping things inside. Many ISFJs learn to express themselves, and find outlets for their powerful emotions.

- The ISFJ has a difficult time saying "no" when asked to do something, and may become over-burdened. In such cases, the ISFJ does not usually express their difficulties to others, because they intensely dislike conflict, and because they tend to place other people's needs over their own.

- ISFJs need positive feedback from others. In the absence of positive feedback, or in the face of criticism, the ISFJ gets discouraged, and may even become depressed. When down on themselves or under great stress, the ISFJ begins to imagine all of the things that might go critically wrong in their life. They have strong feelings of inadequacy, and become convinced that "everything is all wrong", or "I can't do anything right".

Yep, that's me right there... *sigh* so crazy that I hate conflict and what not... I hate being left out of things, another thing that was said about ISFJs is that they love being surrounded by a small group of people. This is true for me. Moo. Oh well.
