I'm officially back from my unofficial hiatus. Between hanging out with friends and desperately trying to find a job, I found it hard to devote any time to the site. I did, however, find time to do a little soul-searching. Well, quite a bit of soul-searching, actually. And I came to a conclusion:
I'm not as INFP as I may have led you to believe.
I've taken various forms of the MBTI online, and though I kept coming up INFP, I couldn't help but wonder if there was some sort of confirmation bias at work.* Especially after seeing the INFPs here.
I suspect I might be more of an INTP. I'm not that big a fan of visual art like painting and sculpture, and I'm not going to even bother trying to write stories or poetry or anything like that. I don't really do that whole "display of emotions" thing, either. In fact, I'm very logical when it comes to my feelings, as odd as that might sound.
On the other hand, I don't deal well with conflict or criticism. I'm easily discouraged, and when there's a fight going on nearby, my first instinct is to leave.
So, yeah. I'm a confused little INxP. Not that I'm particularly lacking for direction in my life; I'm just annoyed that I don't quite know what goes in that third slot... Feedback on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
Also – because I can – here's a song I think would be appropriate:
*Or maybe it's because I took most of the tests when I should have been in bed.
