Hello everybody! I'm new here to this forum, and find the Myers-Briggs personality to test very fascinating. While I believe that it's useful to be self-aware, and aware of others, I also believe that these tests give a very broad explanation of a personality type, and that some people may have certain personality traits that do not fall under the category of their personality type. These tests just give a broad outline!
With that being said..Help!! :) The test that this website referred me to concluded that I am an ESTJ. Other websites have stated that I am an ENTJ and ENFP. I'm not completely sure which category I fall under either..
I'm a very motivated person. A "go-getter" if you will..but I really value my downtime. I would rather work smart, not hard. I love sports, school (mostly biology related stuff), learning, partying, and fitness. I love learning about different theories on the philosophy of life (creationism/evolution/spiral dynamics etc.) I DO see some ESTJ in me, but I am not a control freak. I am a really flexible/open-minded person. ALSO..I'm not selfish. I place a great deal of energy towards my success, but I do care about other people which is evidenced by my choice of profession in nursing (here in California you can make about 90k/year working only 13 12-hour shifts a month). I'm a male nurse and I love it!! I'm really ambitious (I want to be a CRNA-Google nurse anesthetist it if you don't know what it is). I also want those I love to be successful. I value stability, which is partly why I have been with my girlfriend for 4 years now.
I do fall under the ESTJ category in the sense that I do love to teach people what I know, but unlike the description of ESTJ's I value other opinions if they are logical, and I understand that everyone's beliefs/opinions hold some kind of value. Some people may find me cocky though, but I've REALLY been trying to fix this since high school. I'm also pretty damn good at reading people. I can be really competitive, and used to be over-competitive when I was younger, but I realized that was partially related to insecurity, which is no longer a problem.
Oh and..I love music. I play 3 instruments. I also used to play football, and I grew up lower-middle-class in a ghetto area, which I believe is the reason I place such a great deal on success. Sometimes its to a point where I think it's unhealthy. If I feel like I'm not doing something with my life I get sad. I cannot sit around all day. If I do I start to get a little anxiety.
Sorry for the long post!! What do you guys/gals think??
