Personality Types: defining what you know about yourself

Fine tune perception of self & others
Bonnie Crofford : Campaigner
A personality test is an interesting way to fine tune perceptions of a person, including yourself.
I meet a lot of people on my journeys despite the fact that I rarely set foot out of the house. Perhaps because I spend so much time alone, when I am out I tend to subconsciously engage in conversation with unusual strangers. The other day I enjoyed one such encounter which led to conversations around personality types.
We’d just met and after one reaction from me, which was situational, they decided I was a ‘judgemental’ type. I found that assumption fascinating considering my disposition, general demeanor towards others and personal journey of being judged…
I was directed to the personality test by Meyers-Briggs, 16 personalities. It’s a quick 12 minute test which has quite intriguing results. I was intrigued to find out more about myself.
Knowing Me, Knowing You
My Personality Type as per the Test: CAMPAIGNER ( ENFP)
In conclusion on the ‘Campaigners’ page this is what it reads:
‘Yet Campaigners can be easily tripped up in areas where idealism and kindness are more of a liability than an asset. ……… , Campaigners need to put in a conscious effort to develop their weaker traits and additional skills.’
My consolation here is that at least I’ve recognised I have skills and traits that need buffing up. To add to that I’ve got a plan, I’m actioning it and my goal is reachable. I’m quite satisfied with that.
The Campaigner [ENFP]
Personality Test: True or False?
THE CAMPAIGNER: (as per Meyer-Briggs 16 Personalities)
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.
Does this ring true?
Would everyone agree?
Can’t help but giggle…
Ask them out there…
Did you see the table I made?
Or the Chicken Coup?
Yes, absolutely… with things I hate. Now I send out for help. Problem solved.
I used to. Now I process everything within the shortest time possible, categorise and enjoy moving on.
All are pretty accurate.
In my defense I have been actively working on every one of those weaknesses for a long while now, overcoming many of them. Independence has been my greatest gift in getting me through to where I am now. Fault? hhhmmm…
One of my greatest blessings is to be surrounded by people who feel it their duty to point out where I’m going wrong, how I can do better and what my worst faults are. Their intentions of course are my best interests which is why I labeled it a blessing. They have, during my darkest times been the voices I have heard that have spurred me on to be a better person. Clearly, as seen above, I’m flawed and need work. So that’s what I do habitually, is work on myself, grow, learn, understand, add to my skill set.
Have you done the Meyers-Briggs 16 Personalities test?
Was the result accurate? Are you investigating further?
