I am introverted if I don't feel comfortable around someone or a group of people....I'm sure I could come off snobbish.. though I generally smile.... so in this way.. I make myself approachable to most anyone... though if I get the feeling someone just doesn't like me, or thinks they are better than me...I'll do anything to just stay out of their way...
If I Do feel comfortable however, accepted...I may open up like a flower...and come off as an easy extrovert...this can be good or bad.. I am generally loved more so -when I am just being my unashamed self (instead of holding back)... but I think I knew early on.. to do this could get me in a world of trouble.. so yeah.. I have to tame that.. depending...
I will admit certain types of personalities can wear on my nerves...but then others I LOVE & could talk too ALL NIGHT LONG.. and have done so...
All in all.. I do like my alone time... to read a book, getting lost in a dramatic movie, or writing out a thought provoking post here... all an introverts Playground !
One plus...my husband rarely gets on my nerves... amazingly I don't get on his either, so he says...this is why we can spend like all day together & it still seems to fly... it's never too much..
Your hubby sounds like a great man
Several other times I took this type of test I actually came up as INTJ (mastermind), so the I and J were consistent. I have been running on a pretty high halloween candy sugar high all day, so maybe that factored in to some of my answers today
See I had you pegged... Husband is high on the Feeling bar, why I always say he's more of a sensitive guy (though not overly where it's relationship destructive), I've never had to walk on egg shells or anything like this.. but he's very intuned to my feelings, which is surely a plus.
You are teetering in between the Thinking & Feeling.. this makes sense.. I personally am MORE of a Thinker over my husband even.. more the analyzer, inquisitive one.. he will say to me sometimes "I hate to think".. though he's far better at Math... ... Thinkers can be a little cold, oblivious to the emotions of others, or they just don't care.. LOGIC wins.. you can go die.... if they are too high on that bar... ha ha
You are probably very balanced in these 2.. beings you are teetering.. (I have come out both also)... The one letter I am always consistent is the J
.. it's more of a planner.. you weigh out a situation..you don't fly by the seat of your pants type thing..
Here is a little breakdown on all these letters.... So what do all those cryptic MBTI code letters mean?
E = Extraverted Characteristics
Act first, think/reflect later
Feel deprived when cutoff from interaction with the outside world
Usually open to and motivated by outside world of people and things
Enjoy wide variety and change in people relationships
I = Introverted Characteristics
Think/reflect first, then Act
Regularly require an amount of "private time" to recharge batteries
Motivated internally, mind is sometimes so active it is "closed" to outside world
Prefer one-to-one communication and relationships
Every person has two faces. One is directed towards the OUTER world of activities, excitements, people, and things. The other is directed inward to the INNER world of thoughts, interests, ideas, and imagination.
While these are two different but complementary sides of our nature, most people have an innate preference towards energy from either the OUTER or the INNER world. Thus one of their faces, either the Extraverted (E) or Introverted (I), takes the lead in their personality development and plays a more dominant role in their behavior.
S = Sensing Characteristics
Mentally live in the Now, attending to present opportunities
Using common sense and creating practical solutions is automatic-instinctual
Memory recall is rich in detail of facts and past events
Best improvise from past experience
Like clear and concrete information; dislike guessing when facts are "fuzzy"
The Sensing (S) side of our brain notices the sights, sounds, smells and all the sensory details of the PRESENT. It categorizes, organizes, records and stores the specifics from the here and now. It is REALITY based, dealing with "what is." It also provides the specific details of memory & recollections from PAST events.
N = Intuitive Characteristics
Mentally live in the Future, attending to future possibilities
Using imagination and creating/inventing new possibilities is automatic-instinctual
Memory recall emphasizes patterns, contexts, and connections
Best improvise from theoretical understanding
Comfortable with ambiguous, fuzzy data and with guessing its meaning.
The Intuitive (N) side of our brain seeks to understand, interpret and form OVERALL patterns of all the information that is collected and records these patterns and relationships. It speculates on POSSIBILITIES, including looking into and forecasting the FUTURE. It is imaginative and conceptual.
While both kinds of perceiving are necessary and used by all people, each of us instinctively tends to favor one over the other.
T = Thinking Characteristics
Instinctively search for facts and logic in a decision situation.
Naturally notices tasks and work to be accomplished.
Easily able to provide an objective and critical analysis.
Accept conflict as a natural, normal part of relationships with people.
The Thinking (T) side of our brain analyzes information in a DETACHED, objective fashion. It operates from factual principles, deduces and forms conclusions systematically. It is our logical nature.
F = Feeling Characteristics
Instinctively employ personal feelings and impact on people in decision situations
Naturally sensitive to people needs and reactions.
Naturally seek consensus and popular opinions.
Unsettled by conflict; have almost a toxic reaction to disharmony.
The Feeling (F) side of our brain forms conclusions in an ATTACHED and somewhat global manner, based on likes/dislikes, impact on others, and human and aesthetic values. It is our subjective nature.
While everyone uses both means of forming conclusions, each person has a natural bias towards one over the other so that when they give us conflicting directions - one side is the natural trump card or tiebreaker.
J = Judging Characteristics
Plan many of the details in advance before moving into action.
Focus on task-related action; complete meaningful segments before moving on.
Work best and avoid stress when able to keep ahead of deadlines.
Naturally use targets, dates and standard routines to manage life.
A Judging (J) style approaches the outside world WITH A PLAN and is oriented towards organizing one's surroundings, being prepared, making decisions and reaching closure and completion.
P = Perceiving Characteristics
Comfortable moving into action without a plan; plan on-the-go.
Like to multitask, have variety, mix work and play.
Naturally tolerant of time pressure; work best close to the deadlines.
Instinctively avoid commitments which interfere with flexibility, freedom and variety
A Perceiving (P) style takes the outside world AS IT COMES and is adopting and adapting, flexible, open-ended and receptive to new opportunities and changing game plans.
