I’m Part Of The Rare 1%

(Myers-Briggs Personality Test)

I just took the Myers-Briggs personality test and apparently I am part of a rare group making up less than 1% of our population.

THE ADVOCATE (INFJ, -A/-T)

Along with those important figures:

YES!!! I knew that I was related to Morgan Freeman somehow!! That basically means that he’s my grandpa! haha

What about you? What type of personality are you?

Take the test and let me know in the comment section below. I would love to learn more about your type and who you are!

In the mean time here are a few characteristics/facts about people from my group INFJ(-A/-T) and how/why this describes me so well:

“Advocates (INFJ,-A/-T) tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.”

This fact is very very true! Especially the last part “their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.” Not only do I want to help people but I want to understand the whole story and every sides possible. I want to understand how we came to have this problem in the first place and I want to work with people so that we don’t even have this problem in the first place and people don’t need saving in the first place.

“They (advocate) tend to believe that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the hearts of tyrants.”

TRUE! This actually is connected to the first fact above. When something happens and people become evil and do evil things, I think that rather than labelling them as “evil” and exile them and have the whole world literally Hating them, I think that we need to understand them and what pushed them to do such horrible things. We should also question ourselves “did we as a society push people to do evil things?”

It might not seem like it’s our fault at first glance but maybe if we get to the heart of the problem we might be surprised at how we might have been part of the problem all along. As I said it, this is linked to the first fact above. You might not like that I am saying this, but we as a society might be the problem for people turning evil. It’s because I want to get to the heart of the issue that I think this way.

People might not think like me and that is why I guess I am part of this rare group INFJ(-A/-T) but I think that even the most evilest person needs to be heard and needs to be given some love and compassion. I don’t mean that they are not evil and that what they did is not wrong but I feel like there is more to everybody’s stories and instead of blaming everything on that one person who did this one (or multiple) bad thing we should see if part of the problem wasn’t us humans as a whole. And then we should see how we can change ourselves as a society so that nobody ever feels so rejected/out of place/unloved/misunderstood that they become evil and do evil things in the first place.

“It makes sense that their friends and colleagues will come to think of them as quiet Extraverted types, but they would all do well to remember that Advocates need time alone to decompress and recharge, and to not become too alarmed when they suddenly withdraw.”

YES!! People often think of me as an extravert but I really am not! And this test clearly knows that because apparently I am 73% introverted! So yes although I may seem extraverted, I am not. And I need my alone time to think, take care of myself, do creative things by myself and simply not be surrounded by people and the anxiety that comes with it all.

“The passion of their convictions is perfectly capable of carrying them past their breaking point and if their zeal gets out of hand, they can find themselves exhausted, unhealthy and stressed.”

To sum this last quote up, I am so passionate that I can push myself to the point of exhaustion and stress. This is 100% accurate unfortunately…

I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s great to be passionate! And without sounding like a brag, you will never find someone as passionate as me (unless they also are part of the INJF personality group or they are also a scorpio) which I think is interesting for other people to see because I ooze passion! Everything that I do, I do it with passion and love and immense joy! And in a way I also distribute that same passion to others because I want people to be as passionate as I am. But it can be my own downfall as it can also bring me to a point of exhaustion and stress which I think comes full circle with the fact that I am an introvert which means that I need to take a break and relax.

Those are just a few facts that I picked out from the test but it’s so crazy how accurate this test is! It felt like I was reading myself if I was a book or something. Very creepy but very impressive! So now it’s your turn!

Do the test and let me know if it was accurate or not!
