Zojuist de HUMANMETRICS Jung Typology Test gedaan.
“This test is based on Carl Jung and Isabel Myers-Briggs typological approach to personality.”
Volgens de test ben ik type ISFJ.
ISFJs are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their “need to be needed.”
ISFJs are extremely warm and demonstrative within the family circle–and often possessive of their loved ones, as well. When these include Es who want to socialize with the rest of the world, or self-contained ITs, the ISFJ must learn to adjust to these behaviors and not interpret them as rejection.
They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they’re not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they’re shown in a concrete way why its better than the established method.
Ook waar, ik ga liever voor een oplossing waarmee ik al bekend ben dan voor iets nieuws wat misschien wel beter zou werken maar waar ik nog geen ervaring mee heb.
The ISFJ has an extremely well-developed sense of space, function, and aesthetic appeal. For that reason, they’re likely to have beautifully furnished, functional homes. They make extremely good interior decorators.
Uhm, pardon? Sorry, maar deze klopt niet helemaal. Of je moet de puinzooi die ik doorgaans maak van m’n kamer als “interior decoration” zien :P.
Ironically, because they prove over and over that they can be relied on for their loyalty and unstinting, high-quality work, those around them often take them for granted–even take advantage of them.
The ISFJ has a difficult time saying “no” when asked to do something, and may become over-burdened. In such cases, the ISFJ does not usually express their difficulties to others, because they intensely dislike conflict, and because they tend to place other people’s needs over their own. The ISFJ needs to learn to identify, value, and express their own needs, if they wish to avoid becoming over-worked and taken for granted.
Waar, en het is niet de eerste keer dat ik voor die valkuil gewaarschuwd wordt.
Admittedly, the problem is sometimes aggravated by the ISFJs themselves; for instance, they are notoriously bad at delegating (“If you want it done right, do it yourself”).
Maar, maar, dat is toch ook zo?!?
ISFJs need positive feedback from others. In the absence of positive feedback, or in the face of criticism, the ISFJ gets discouraged, and may even become depressed.
Of, zoals Do het ooit zo mooi verwoorde: “Jij haalt je eigenwaarde uit wat anderen over je denken. Stop daar eens mee.”
The ISFJ is warm, generous, and dependable. They have many special gifts to offer, in their sensitivity to others, and their strong ability to keep things running smoothly. They need to remember to not be overly critical of themselves, and to give themselves some of the warmth and love which they freely dispense to others.
