10-14-98: a world of discovery
well, my car is fixed and ready. yippee. so i only owe $355.65 for the
car because they decided that the tire was 50% worn out. argh.
i am really beginning to think that i need to get a lawyer.
this fucking sucks. out loud if you know what i mean.
a little bit of flowers to take my mind off of things.
anyway. I really enjoy taking myers-briggs tests,
but this one seemed to really take the cake with me.
i mean it pegged me so on the money
that i'm really worried at the moment. tee hee.
it's at personality
so take a gander at this information.
and if you know anything about me. see how spooky this online test really is.
I scored ENFP before during my freshman year of college. and it said that i'm the journalist
type personality. who knew that was what I had chosen to be my
major when i was in high school. see i told you it was spooky.
wait til you read the jobs that it suggests i should persue.
then you will really go
You Scored As an ENFP:
5% of the Population
General: ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often
bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by
other people, on both an individual and a humani- tarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but
ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another.
Social/Personal Relationships: ENFPs have a great deal of zany charm, which can ingratiate them to the more stodgy
types in spite of their unconventionality. They are outgoing, fun, and genuinely like people. As SOs/mates they are
warm, affectionate (lots of PDA), and disconcertingly spontaneous. However, attention span in relationships can be
short; ENFPs are easily intrigued and distracted by new friends and acquaintances, forgetting about the older ones for
long stretches at a time. Less mature ENFPs may need to feel they are the center of attention all the time, to reassure
them that everyone thinks they're a wonderful and fascinating person.
ENFPs often have strong, if unconvential, convictions on various issues related to their Cosmic View. They usually try
to use their social skills and contacts to persuade people gently of the rightness of these views; his sometimes results in
their neglecting their nearest and dearest while flitting around trying to save the world.
Work Environment: ENFPs are pleasant, easygoing, and usually fun to work with. They come up with great ideas, and
are a major asset in brainstorming sessions. Followthrough tends to be a problem, however; they tend to get bored
quickly, especially if a newer, more interesting project comes along. They also tend to be procrastinators, both about
meeting hard deadlines and about performing any small, uninteresting tasks that they've been assigned. ENFPs are at
their most useful when working in a group with a J or two to take up the slack.
ENFPs hate bureaucracy, both in principle and in practice; they will always make a point of launching one of their
crusades against some aspect of it.
ENFPs are friendly folks. Most are really enjoyable people. Some of the most soft-hearted people are ENFPs.
ENFPs have what some call a "silly switch." They can be intellectual, serious, all business for a while, but whenever
they get the chance, they flip that switch and become CAPTAIN WILDCHILD, the scourge of the swimming pool,
ticklers par excellence. Sometimes they may even appear intoxicated when the "switch" is flipped.
One study has shown that ENFPs are significantly overrepresented in psychodrama. Most have a natural propensity
for role-playing and acting.
ENFPs like to tell funny stories, especially about their friends. This penchant may be why many are attracted to
journalism. I kid one of my ENFP friends that if I want the sixth fleet to know something, I'll just tell him.
ENFPs are global learners. Close enough is satisfactory to the ENFP. which may unnerve more precise thinking types,
especially with such things as piano practice ("three quarter notes or four ... what's the difference?") Amazingly, some
ENFPs are adept at exacting disciplines such as mathematics.
Friends are what life is about to ENFPs, moreso even than the other NFs. They hold up their end of the relationship,
sometimes being victimized by less caring individuals. ENFPs are energized by being around people. Some have real
difficulty being alone, especially on a regular basis.
One ENFP colleague, a social worker, had such tremendous interpersonal skills that she put her interviewers at ease
during her own job interview. She had the ability to make strangers feel like old friends.
ENFPs sometimes can be blindsided by their secondary Feeling function. Hasty decisions based on deeply felt
values may boil over with unpredictable results. More than one ENFP has abruptly quit a job in such a moment.
