I've only just gotten into MBTI, but it's consumed my life for the past few days; I have to know everything about it, and about myself. This is probably spurred by the fact that I'm currently a second-semester junior at an all-girls prep school, and the college process is beginning. The first step of it, say our college counselors, is self-assessment.
Which eventually led me to MBTI, with the nudging from a few friends. I didn't really know what it meant to be INTP at first-- all I knew is that I tested INTP several times [95 I/86 N/74 T/100 P] and that the descriptions sound eerily familiar... At first, I was a bit baffled by how scarily accurate this all was-- then I was proud to be what seemed like a rare type-- and then I was utterly depressed by what seemed to be my inevitable estrangement from the rest of the world. On a side note, my Enneagram is 4.
Anyway, you certainly don't care about any of that! I hope I didn't come across too horribly...
In any case-- My name's Meredith "in real life." You can call me Meredith, or you can call me Autumn-- that's what I go by online. I fill my time with piano lessons, softball (the only team sport I enjoy), guitar lessons, animation classes, multimedia art classes, peer tutoring, studying for the SAT, researching college, and... the computer! I'm 17, I love birds, and I'm at a stage in my life in which I'm very confused about myself.
So I joined personalitycafe at the suggestion of a friend, and... Here I am! I hope I can stick around here; it looks like a really great place.
