Work

So I'm sitting here at the computer, working a "tight" deadline supposedly. the guys are supposed to be helping me with stuff, and one's doing a webex, and the other's on a conf call denying reality.

Grr...

I decided to take a fifteen minute break to chill out some. And took a Meyers-Briggs test at the urging of a staffing company email.

Here's what came out:

ENFJ.

Interesting. Here's what an online profile says about them (brief excerpt):

ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or
grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with
their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's
usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their
dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually
are.

ENFJs are global learners. They see the big picture. The ENFJs focus is
expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or
projects simultaneously. Many ENFJs have tremendous entrepreneurial
ability.

ENFJs are, by definition, Js, with whom we associate organization and
decisiveness. But they don't resemble the SJs or even the NTJs in
organization of the environment nor occasional recalcitrance. ENFJs are
organized in the arena of interpersonal affairs. Their offices may or may
not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about
people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than
those of their NFP counterparts.


I like that! It very much fits me. I juggle a TON of different things at a time. I would ADORE having my own business, just lack of financials right now is the only thing that prevents me.

I particularly like this part:

Their offices may or may not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than those of their NFP counterparts.


Resilient. Hehe. My husband more commonly calls it "being stubborn". I make an opinion and then I stick with it, unless it can be proved wrong. And there's only a few people who can prove me wrong - the husband, my good friend Emiel, and my two best girlfriends Amy and Lorraina.

More disturbingly, this is also true:

Face-to-face relationships are intense, personable and warm, though they may be so infrequently achieved that intimate friendships are rare.


Hmm. Interesting.
