    So I've taken quiet an interest in the Myer Briggs prelude character analysis, I'm very interesting in learning about myself and how I function aswell as to how everyone around does aswell, growing up I thought I was weird cause I would like to hang out with my friends but after. Short period of time I would then wann to spend time alone to recharge, I would have fathered stay in and watch tv or read or be with my pets aswell as use my imagination a lot.

    Any how I took the test and got INFP which I guess is about 4-5% of the population

    Portrait of an INFP - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving
    (Introverted Feeling with Extraverted Intuition)

    The Idealist


    As an INFP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit into your personal value system. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

    INFPs, more than other iNtuitive Feeling types, are focused on making the world a better place for people. Their primary goal is to find out their meaning in life. What is their purpose? How can they best serve humanity in their lives? They are idealists and perfectionists, who drive themselves hard in their quest for achieving the goals they have identified for themselves

    INFPs are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP's value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life. The goal at the end of the path is always the same - the INFP is driven to help people and make the world a better place.

    Generally thoughtful and considerate, INFPs are good listeners and put people at ease. Although they may be reserved in expressing emotion, they have a very deep well of caring and are genuinely interested in understanding people. This sincerity is sensed by others, making the INFP a valued friend and confidante. An INFP can be quite warm with people he or she knows well.

    INFPs do not like conflict, and go to great lengths to avoid it. If they must face it, they will always approach it from the perspective of their feelings. In conflict situations, INFPs place little importance on who is right and who is wrong. They focus on the way that the conflict makes them feel, and indeed don't really care whether or not they're right. They don't want to feel badly. This trait sometimes makes them appear irrational and illogical in conflict situations. On the other hand, INFPs make very good mediators, and are typically good at solving other people's conflicts, because they intuitively understand people's perspectives and feelings, and genuinely want to help them.

    INFPs are flexible and laid-back, until one of their values is violated. In the face of their value system being threatened, INFPs can become aggressive defenders, fighting passionately for their cause. When an INFP has adopted a project or job which they're interested in, it usually becomes a "cause" for them. Although they are not detail-oriented individuals, they will cover every possible detail with determination and vigor when working for their "cause".

    When it comes to the mundane details of life maintenance, INFPs are typically completely unaware of such things. They might go for long periods without noticing a stain on the carpet, but carefully and meticulously brush a speck of dust off of their project booklet.

    INFPs do not like to deal with hard facts and logic. Their focus on their feelings and the Human Condition makes it difficult for them to deal with impersonal judgment. They don't understand or believe in the validity of impersonal judgment, which makes them naturally rather ineffective at using it. Most INFPs will avoid impersonal analysis, although some have developed this ability and are able to be quite logical. Under stress, it's not uncommon for INFPs to mis-use hard logic in the heat of anger, throwing out fact after (often inaccurate) fact in an emotional outburst.

    INFPs have very high standards and are perfectionists. Consequently, they are usually hard on themselves, and don't give themselves enough credit. INFPs may have problems working on a project in a group, because their standards are likely to be higher than other members' of the group. In group situations, they may have a "control" problem. The INFP needs to work on balancing their high ideals with the requirements of every day living. Without resolving this conflict, they will never be happy with themselves, and they may become confused and paralyzed about what to do with their lives.

    INFPs are usually talented writers. They may be awkard and uncomfortable with expressing themselves verbally, but have a wonderful ability to define and express what they're feeling on paper. INFPs also appear frequently in social service professions, such as counselling or teaching. They are at their best in situations where they're working towards the public good, and in which they don't need to use hard logic.

    INFPs who function in their well-developed sides can accomplish great and wonderful things, which they will rarely give themselves credit for. Some of the great, humanistic catalysts in the world have been INFPs.


    Anyways I'm curious to see y'all's results, google prelude character analysis and take the 35 question questionnaire and let me know what you guys got I wanna read! RESIZED TEXT GOES HERERESIZED TEXT GOES HERECOLORED TEXT GOES HERE

    This is actually Jung's work and theories, and it's better done in a book/test called "Please Understand Me," by Kersey and Bates. It's incredible.

    Don't take those tests too personally, they aren't particularly scientific - google for criticisms.


    That's opinion only, they're very good but there is better, from the original Jung. Read Please Understand Me.

    The Myers-Briggs personality test is used by companies the world over but the evidence is that it's nowhere near as useful as its popularity suggests

    To me it seems counterproductive and lazy to try to get to know yourself by putting yourself in a box. You might as well get to know yourself by reading your horoscope.

    4%? Commoner!

    I test as INFJ, reported here...

    theantijock saidhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INFJ
    INFJs are among the rarest of types, usually accounted as being between 1–3% of the population

    Finally an explanation as to why I've always thought there was something odd about 99% of yas.

    That's not the point, it's supposed to be fun. Why do people on here always have to be such smart asses and rude about things, if the topic doesn't interest why you come in this forum and just bring negativity, there are so many forums, you don't see me going to each of them trying to make someone feel dumb for something they think is interesting.

    I give up on these forums lol no point in trying to talk to people and connect when they just want to be smart asses and make people look stupid.
