Miscellaneous: Myers-Briggs Test

I took psychology when I was in college, and I remember getting a hold of the Myer-Briggs test, a personality test. At this moment it is making the rounds on Facebook reminding me that I took it oh so long ago. I thought the results were a pretty good description of me - whatever they were at the time. Since I hate doing all those little tests on Facebook I searched the net instead and took one of the quick quizzes available.

I'm an ISTJ - Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, Judging person. Using the Keirsey Tempermants chart I'm an Inspector. And the description sounded pretty accurate. I thought it could be like the zodiac in which little things about all of the signs sound good. So I looked at the description for a friend who was the opposite (ENFP - Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling, Perceiving) on all but one of the "types." The description was so NOT me.

What bugs me is that this particular personality is not suited to my job (This is not the right time to go job hunting) or B. Oh, well. B is stuck with me.

Mine personality test is also a great description of me...exact opposite of my hubby too...and the job I had prior to my car accident was the perfect job for my personality hence why I was successful at it and loved it. Unfortunately I can't do it anymore. Going to school full time fills the day, but isn't helping my personality!LOL
