spiritual_emergency Posted August 23, 2010 Report Share Posted August 23, 2010 I looked to see if such a thread had been started before but I couldn't find one. I did, however, find this: Psychological Testing: Myers Briggs For those not in the know, the Myers Briggs test is based on typologies that Jung developed. I consistently score as an INFJ. I once noted to a friend that the description was so accurate, it was embarrasing...... Although they are happy working at jobs (such as writing) that require solitude and close attention, Counselors do quite well with individuals or groups of people, provided that the personal interactions are not superficial, and that they find some quiet, private time every now and then to recharge their batteries. Counselors are scarce, little more than one percent of the population, and can be hard to get to know, since they tend not to share their innermost thoughts or their powerful emotional reactions except with their loved ones. They are highly private people, with an unusually rich, complicated inner life. ...Blessed with vivid imaginations, Counselors are often seen as the most poetical of all the types, and in fact they use a lot of poetic imagery in their everyday language. Their great talent for language-both written and spoken-is usually directed toward communicating with people in a personalized way. Counselors are highly intuitive and can recognize another's emotions or intentions - good or evil - even before that person is aware of them. Counselors themselves can seldom tell how they came to read others' feelings so keenly. This extreme sensitivity to others could very well be the basis of the Counselor's remarkable ability to experience a whole array of psychic phenomena.Source: keirsey.com: INFJIn the online environment I'm often mistaken for an extrovert but this is because more of my inner life can be seen in this environment. In my offline life, I'm much quieter. In fact, quietude is something absolutely essential to me.Meantime, the article I linked above also noted...Introverted Intuition looks to what will be and what the deep significance of something is. This process often tunes in to aspects of universal human experience and archetypal symbols. Introverted intuition is directed inward to the contents of the unconscious. It attempts to fathom internal events by relating them to universal psychological processes or to other archetypal images. Consequently it generally has a mythical, symbolic or prophetic quality.I guess that explains my affinity for Jungian lines of inquiry. If anyone else wishes to see where they score, they can find a number of free online tests through any search engine. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
