My Personality Results
“Usually self-expression comes more easily to INFJs on paper, as they tend to have strong writing skills. Since in addition they often possess a strong personal charisma, INFJs are generally well-suited to the “inspirational” professions such as teaching (especially in higher education) and religious leadership. Psychology and counseling are other obvious choices, but overall, INFJs can be exceptionally difficult to pigeonhole by their career paths. Perhaps the best example of this occurs in the technical fields. Many INFJs perceive themselves at a disadvantage when dealing with the mystique and formality of “hard logic”, and in academic terms this may cause a tendency to gravitate towards the liberal arts rather than the sciences. However, the significant minority of INFJs who do pursue studies and careers in the latter areas tend to be as successful as their T counterparts, as it is *iNtuition* — the dominant function for the INFJ type — which governs the ability to understand abstract theory and implement it creatively.”
“INFJs are effective in occupations involving substantial intellectual work, caring for other people, and requiring creativity. INFJs build successful careers in a broad range of organizations. Social and community care services, counseling, teachers of humanities and social sciences, healthcare workers (both in administration and in medical services), various service-oriented professions as well as religious services and social movements are just some of the examples of occupations favourable to INFJs. Quite often they are found in mid-rank management positions. For some of them occupations in sciences or academia are also favourable.”
Social Services, Health Care , Arts & Humanities
How these results resonate with me: I have taken this personality test plenty of times before. I have taken it in High School as well as in College and the results have always been the same. It’s pretty dead on in accuracy. Proof of that, is the fact that I have majored for parts of my college career in all three areas. I started in Social Services by first studying Psychology as my first major choice. Soon after, I was considering majoring in social work, but I soon changed my mind about that. These subjects are interesting to learn about, but I’m not necessarily attracted to it as a profession.
I wanted to tap more into my creative side, so I decided to change my degree plan to Liberal Arts with the 3 areas of study being Psychology, Sociology and Health Science. I should be done with this degree very soon but that’s what brings me to the Health Care portion of my Career Test. I am majoring in nursing currently and will be postponing my Liberal Arts Degree to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree as a Registered Nurse.
Overall, I feel like the test results were pretty accurate. I have spoken about being an introvert in previous posts, in which you can check out in my Inspiration section of the blog. I’m a quiet introvert, who has learned to adapt to large crowds and speaking engagements, and has a creative side and strong in writing. I found out that I share the same personality elements as Martin Luther King Jr. who I also share a birthday with. No problem with me, because I really admire him. I’m also thinking that most of the blogging community is INFJ, because we all should love to write, right? 🙂
This was really great fun!
