Being an INFP is like.....
.... being a child at heart forever, walking the world with rose colored glasses and looking for all the answers for living life easily and peacefully all the while feeling quite sure that I don't exactly act, feel or think like others do, and it feels pretty isolating.

Some grandmothers pass down cameo necklaces. Katharine Cook Briggs passed down the world’s most widely used personality test. Chances are you’ve taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or will. Roughly 2 million people a year do.

Great article from Washington Post's On Leadership about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Anne Egros's curator insight, December 15, 2012 1:48 PM

I am using another personality assessment for my coaching clients, it is called DISC and its based on the same principles than the Myers-Briggs test but with only 2 dimensions: Extrovert-Introvert and Task-People oriented, that gives 4 main types and variations inbetween.

 

The absolute results of the stest are not so important, what is useful is to bring awereness to people on their preferences and help them discover in real situations what make them  thrive or what situations are stressful.

 

People also get an idea on how to communicate with others taking into account their own communication styles and behavioral preferences.

 

I also find it is a good base to identify necessary behavioral changes to improve performance, self-comfidence or well-being.

It's life changing knowing your personality type. You can begin to accept your weaknesses and know your strengths.

Despicable me: Empathy on trial

Despicable me: Empathy on trial | Being an INFP is like..... | Scoop.it

When a psychology questionnaire revealed he had disturbingly low levels of empathy, Adam Dudding wanted an explanation. So he got on the phone to the test's creator, the renowned British brain researcher, Simon Baron-Cohen.

I've always found it hard to resist a pop-psychology test. When those stupid ads pop up with a little mugshot of Einstein and "What's your personality type?!", I'll click on the link in preference to meeting a deadline. If a lurking Scientologist tries to lure me up the stairs for a quick bout of Dianetics, I'm tempted to follow, until I remember it ultimately leads to couch-jumping and sci-fi theology.

What Type of Social Media Personality Are You? [INFOGRAPHIC]

What Type of Social Media Personality Are You? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Being an INFP is like..... | Scoop.it
The Myers-Briggs Indicator tests psychological traits per individual. Turns out, your specific indicators inform how you use social media.

 

In 1921, psychologist Carl Jung changed the fundamentals of his field. By distributing a psychometric test called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to patients, Jung claimed he could accurately boil down the psychological types of humans into 16 major categories.

Still in use today, the metrics determine whether test takers tend toward certain character traits, such as introversion (I) vs. extroversion (E) or thinking (T) vs. feeling (F). Once taken, test results produce an acronym per individual. For example, “ISTJ” is for an Introvert-Sensing-Thinking-Judging person.

 

The infographic above, based on data by CPP, publishers of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, details the qualifiers for each of the test’s characteristics, but furthermore, predicts the psychological types most likely to participate on specific social networks. More extroverts reported using Facebook than introverts, for instance. And people with inclinations toward Feeling spend more time browsing and interacting with people on Facebook, rather than those who tend toward Thinking.
