INFP

A friend's facebook status reminded me of the Myers-Briggs personality analysis again, so I retook the test and had another look at my personality type:

This time when I took the test it came out even stronger than last time. The characteristic description for me according to this analysis is "Dreamer." It's funny that my parents used to call me that all my life. I always got upset about that, partly because to my parents it had a very negative connotation. To them dreamers wouldn't amount much in life.

A really cool thing is that I'm in great company with the INFP type. Some of the coolest people are supposedly INFPs, like:
  • J. R. R. Tolkien
  • William Shakespeare
  • George Orwell
  • Aldous Huxley
  • St. John
  • St. Luke
  • Mary, Jesus's Mother
  • Peter Jackson, director for LOTR
  • Calvin (from Calvin & Hobbes)
  • Fox Mulder (from X-Files, my hun's favorite tv show)

Another funny thing is that I seem to be in the totally wrong profession for me. I wonder if I'll ever manage the huge jump of a career change to musician, counselor, minister. I'd love to...
