I wrote that I was an ISFP when my friend did a questionnaire to me during that leisure day--and I took one lengthy free-personality test on this 16personalities website. The result was same with my friend's result so I was pretty convinced with this result that I'm a truly ISFP.
Until I nod on every single point that the article pointed--natural reaction right?
So last week during a boring SAP class I told my other friend to take the 16personalities free-test on the very same website (the website has major change from what I saw last year, and the free-test was considerably shorter and more convenient) and her result popped out. Didn't remember what was her result up to this minute ._.
I was saying that I am an ISFP proudly and pointed some carefree personalities that the website points out--I was err, err but my friends told me it's really me. I'm that easy-going person and fun to be with.
So at home, I try to retake the free-test by myself on this very same website also; and my result changed!
Major shocked lah!
I'm now an INFP.
Means: Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Prospective.
Not that major change, that I only switched the S part with N part, but the other branches are still the same so it's more likely to be accurate.
Here is what the last year's result came out from my free-test 16personalities:
Also, I have just noticed from my previous post that for my ISFP result, my S percentage was only 1% so I think it's really fine that this time I took the test, I switched the S to N to become INFP.
So, for now I'm an INFP hahahaha :|
Below, I'm going to quote the INFP explanations taken from 16personalities website, and while it's a bit too long to read, but I'm highlighting some things that I consider those as very very me. And now that I can compare between INFP result and ISFP result; I can see that there are some ISFP results that are lacking; that are filled on this INFP result.
Short definition of INFP:
a reserved and calm person.
abstract, a dreamer, focus on big pictures rather than details.
often ignore the logical impact and weigh the social impact more.
flexible and keep things open.
Have a good long read! (or read pink words for short summaries for what I'm thinking about):
And those are summaries I took from 16personalities!
INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine.
INFPs’ ability with language doesn’t stop with their native tongue, either - as with most people who share the Diplomat personality types, they are considered gifted when it comes to learning a second (or third!) language.
* Idealistic - INFPs' friends and loved ones will come to admire and depend on them for their optimism.
* Seek and Value Harmony - They have no interest in having power over others, and don't much care for domineering attitudes at all.
* Open-Minded and Flexible - They dislike being constrained by rules (this is so far so much true for me!). INFPs give the benefit of the doubt too, and so long as their principles and ideas are not being challenged, they'll support others' right to do what they think is right.
* Very Creative - INFPs combine their intuitive nature with their open-mindedness to allow them to see things from unconventional perspectives.
* Passionate and Energetic - When something captures INFPs' imagination and speaks to their beliefs, they go all in, dedicating their time, energy, thoughts and emotions to the project.
* Dedicated and Hard-Working - While others focusing on the challenges of the moment may give up when the going gets tough, INFPs (especially Assertive ones) have the benefit of their far-reaching vision to help them through.
* Too Idealistic - INFPs often take their idealism too far, setting themselves up for disappointment as, again and again, evil things happen in the world.
* Too Altruistic - INFPs sometimes see themselves as selfish, but only because they want to give so much more than they are able to.
* Impractical - When something captures INFPs' imagination, they can neglect practical matters like day-to-day maintenance and simple pleasures. (this is not true on me HAHA)
* Dislike Dealing With Data - INFPs are often so focused on the big picture that they forget the forest is made of individual trees.
* Take Things Personally - INFPs often take challenges and criticisms personally, rather than as inspiration to reassess their positions.
* Difficult to Get to Know - INFPs are private, reserved and self-conscious.
INFP Romantic Relationship:
* INFPs' tendency to focus their attention on just a few people in their lives means that they will approach new relationships wholeheartedly, with a sense of inherent value, dedication and trust.
* But INFPs aren't necessarily in a rush to commit - they are, after all, Prospecting (P) types, and are almost always looking to either establish a new relationship or improve an existing one - they need to be sure they've found someone compatible.
* INFPs do everything they can to be the ideal partner, staying true to themselves and encouraging their partners to do the same. INFPs take their time in becoming physically intimate so that they can get to know their partners, using their creativity to understand their wants and needs, and adapt to them.
* INFPs crave the depth of mutual human understanding, but tire easily in social situations; they are excellent at reading into others' feelings and motivations, but are often unwilling to provide others the same insight into themselves - it's as though INFPs like the idea of human contact, but not the reality of social contact.
* INFPs will always need to disappear for a while, removing themselves from others so they can re-center on their own minds and feelings. (this is also not that true for me, I never disappear, I just get too immersed on things that I love that I forget to socialise once in a while)
* First and foremost is seemingly every INFPs' dream growing up - to become an author. While a novel is a classic choice, it is rarely an accessible one, and there are many viable options for freedom-loving INFPs. The internet brings to the world the opportunities of blogging (second major shock! Am I here now blogging as a blogger is the utmost indicator that I'm an INFP?) and freelance work - as organizations expand their reach beyond their native tongues, they will come to depend on INFP personality types, with their gift for language and written expression, to take their rougher translations and stale pitches and inject them with a sense of beauty and poetry.
* Where INFPs will not thrive is in a high-stress, team-heavy, busy environment that burdens them with bureaucracy and tedium. (yeah so true!) INFPs need to be able to work with creativity and consideration (yeah so true, again!)
* In the workplace, INFPs face the challenge of taking their work and their profession personally. To INFPs, if it isn't worth doing, it isn't really worth doing, (so much realisation came when I was working last month) and this sense of moral purpose in their work colors everything from how they respond to authority to how they express it.
* INFPs feel most comfortable among colleagues - they aren't interested in controlling others, and have a similar distaste for being controlled. Among their colleagues, INFPs will feel freer to share their ideas, and while they may maintain some psychological distance, they will make every effort to be pleasant, friendly and supportive - so long as their coworkers reciprocate. INFPs don't like conflict or picking sides, and will do everything they can to maintain harmony and cooperation.
* People with the INFP personality type are flexible, open-minded and give their subordinates the tools they need, be they responsible delegation or an intuitive and receptive sounding board, to get the job done. Keeping their eyes on the horizon, INFPs set goals that achieve a desirable end, and help the people working under them to make that happen.
Full credit to them for providing a very in-depth explanations.
From those summaries I can now draw a big line of conclusion here:
* I am a pure dreamer and an Idealist. Realised it some moments ago so yeah, I agree. (Idk why it's a good thing bcs I have noticed this somehow that Fatty Ranger Meow is most likely a Realist that helps me standing still lol)I learned this 16personalities during my first semester at University so this is not as bullshit as astrologies or whatsoever (though I think they're fun to troll haha).
* I am (or should I say, I am going to be) picky in my career. But my luck stroke has always been good in studying and career so I have no worry in this.
* I am goal-oriented. (It's very nice to reassure because once, I asked my Thesis partner whether she's a process-oriented or a goal-oriented and after some thoughts she said that she's a process-oriented; so we're in a great team!)
* I am flexible. Up until today, I still have barest idea about how flexible I am because my friend also said that I'm a flexible person. I should ask her about this more tomorrow teehee.
* My writing hobby is confirmed--INFPs are shining in writing career, shiny authors and bloggers. Woot! That explains everything.
* I take things very very personally--while I appear as just fine, I remember things that people have done to me; good or bad. Say it simple, if they do good things to me, I will multiply it to them; if they do bad things to me; I will multiply it to them as well. I once asked myself, am I a Forgiver or a Revenger? I answered it within one second: I'm a Revenger. LOL. Shocked much? :P
Have you taken your very free-test for 16personalities?
Lots of love ♥
