Hello. My name is Rebecca and I am … well, sometimes I am an ENFP and sometimes I am an ENFJ.
For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about: These are Myer’s Briggs Personalty Types.
In short, this means that I am:
- An Extrovert (slightly; I have a 22% preference to extroversion over introversion)
- Intuitive (moderately; I have a 50% preference of intuition over sensing)
- A feeler (moderately; I have a 38% preference of feeling over thinking)
- Judgement-based (distinctive; I have a 67% preference for judging over perceiving)
But wait. I know I am also a big fan of perception. And I can be introverted at times (hence, all the blogging and thinking and reflecting). Let’s talk about this.
Firstly, I am an extrovert in my natural state; however, when a situation arises that makes me feel uncomfortable or requires me to analyze the people around me in order to decide how safe I feel, I become introverted so I can make my judgments. Seriously, that’s how it is.
Secondly, I know that the perceiving/judging issue is directly related to my faith. As a Christian, I recognize and follow distinct expectations set forth by the maker of the universe. These are clear-cut expectations: Don’t lie; don’t hurt others; don’t make anything more important than God. Conversely, as a Christian, I recognize grace. I regularly work to remember grace–to give grace to others and to accept grace from others. This puts me in a position which requires me to focus on the background of a person–not just what I’m viewing immediately in front of me. What’s the story? How can I love this person?
I love personality tests. Maybe it’s the self-consumed person in me.
I find them fascinating.
What is your personality type?
