Its strange how sometimes those personality tests that get forwarded around will strike a chord. The majority of the time I’ll be looking at the screen laughing at the silliness of it all. Twice in the last couple of days, though, I found myself thinking, “Wow, that’s really true!”

Here’s how I scored:

On the Jung Typology Test I’m an ENFJ, the Giver. There are some points I particularly agree with (complete description here):

·You deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit into your personal value system.

· ENFJs are people-focused individuals. They understand and care about people, and have a special talent for bringing out the best in others.

· It’s natural to their personality type that they will tend to place other people’s needs above their own, but they need to stay aware of their own needs so that they don’t sacrifice themselves in their drive to help others.

· ENFJs like for things to be well-organized, and will work hard at maintaining structure and resolving ambiguity.

· Their uncanny ability to understand people and say just what needs to be said to make them happy makes them naturals for counseling.

· ENFJs have a strong need for close, intimate relationships, and will put forth a lot of effort in creating and maintaining these relationships. They’re very loyal and trustworthy once involved in a relationship.

· As giving and caring as the ENFJ is, they need to remember to value their own needs as well as the needs of others.

And on the Personal DNA Test, I’m a Benevolent creator. I had more of those, so true moments:

· Your imagination, confidence, willingness to explore, and appreciation of beauty make you a creator.

· You eagerness to seek new and varied experiences leads you into many different situations.

· Your caring nature goes beyond basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people’s situations before passing any sort of judgement.

· You’re a good listener, and even better at offering advice.

· You’re concerned with others at both an individual and societal level – you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you’ve never met.

· Other people’s feelings are important to you, and you’re god at mediating disputes.

· Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people.
