7: I’m left-handed. Way back in the 1960s a substitute teacher hit my writing hand with a ruler and told me to try right-handed. I can write a bit right-handed but not as well, bat right and throw left.
8: Latest results of a Briggs-Meyers personality test show an abrupt change – maybe because I took it between calls at work.
Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging
Independent, original, analytical, and determined. Have an exceptional ability to turn theories into solid plans of action. Highly value knowledge, competence, and structure. Driven to derive meaning from their visions. Long-range thinkers. Have very high standards for their performance, and the performance of others. Natural leaders, but will follow if they trust existing leaders.
Yeah, right. But it gets better…
As an INTJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things rationally and logically.
INTJs live in the world of ideas and strategic planning. They value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in these regards, which they continuously strive to fulfill. To a somewhat lesser extent, they have similar expectations of others.
With Introverted Intuition dominating their personality, INTJs focus their energy on observing the world, and generating ideas and possibilities. Their mind constantly gathers information and makes associations about it. They are tremendously insightful and usually are very quick to understand new ideas. However, their primary interest is not understanding a concept, but rather applying that concept in a useful way. Unlike the INTP, they do not follow an idea as far as they possibly can, seeking only to understand it fully. INTJs are driven to come to conclusions about ideas. Their need for closure and organization usually requires that they take some action.
Earlier in life, my test came out just like Ric Booth’s here http://ricbooth.wordpress.com/2009/01/28/i-am-an-infp/
I’m guessing I changed as a result of work as an editor and then call center rep. I still think I’m really an INFP.
