No, I don’t mean introvert, I just mean… not an extrovert.
Today’s prompt is all about personality types. Growing up, I’d always be classified as an extrovert- I THRIVE off of being around people and having deep conversations with them. However, after a good amount of time and human interaction, my introvert side comes out and I NEED to have some time along, probably with a cup of coffee and book to settle myself again. I need time alone to process everything and bring myself peace. More and more often I find that being in rooms with many people makes me more nervous than comfortable, and crowds aren’t really my thing.
Recently, I’ve been classified by tests like the Myers-Briggs test as an introvert or right on the line between the two. This is interesting to me to see how my personality develops as I mature and become an adult.
Whether that first letter continues to be an I or goes back to an E, I feel comfortable with how the rest of the letters play out.
Sensing, feeling, perceiving.
I am perceptive of others’ feelings, empathetic, and make decisions based off of emotions rather than rational thought- which sometimes get’s me in trouble, but seems to have worked for me this far!
Sometimes I feel like these types of tests try to put us in neat little boxes, and there is so much more to us as people than four letters can really predict. I think it gives us a nice idea of the way our minds may work but of course there is so much more that can be said. To keep this blog post from becoming a novel, I’ll spare you on the details of my own personality!
What personality type are you? Do you agree with the results these types of tests give you? Why or why not?
