What’s your Type?

I took this personality test WAAY back when I was in college that asked you some questions and then defined your personality using four of eight letters. There were 16 possible combinations and I remembered mine being really accurate.

Fast forward seven years and I’m suddenly faced with interviewing people to work with me. Just me. So I thought back to this test and thought, what better way to know if I’ll be compatible with whoever I hire? At least enough to give me a glimpse into how they operate.

So I looked it up again, and lo and behold I found a website where you can take the test for free and see the results! I took it again out of curiosity and I’m still the same personality type: INFJ.

It says in my description that the INFJ type is thought to be the most rare. Let me just say, I think they’re wrong because almost everyone I interviewed was also an INFJ. Apparently my personality type is really drawn to becoming an Interior Designer. Who knew?


Anyway, I though it was interesting, so I thought I would share. This has nothing to do with design or gaming or writing, but at the same time it has EVERYTHING to do with EVERYTHING.

So what type are you? I’m interested to know. Did you feel like your explanation fell in line with how you feel about yourself?

Happy Tuesday!


  1. It says I'm ESFP.

    "ESFPs love being in the center of attention and enjoying even the simplest things – their fun and impulsive nature is usually very attractive to other people. People with this personality type never run out of ideas and their curiosity is insatiable.

    ESFPs love communicating with other people and can spend hours upon hours chatting about various topics. There is no clearer tell-tale of an ESFP than the fact that someone has just spent the last hour talking about everything but the topic that was supposed to be the main reason for the conversation."

    Well, that last part is pretty accurate. Lol. Thanks for sharing!

  2. ISTJ

    "ISTJs tend to be extremely thorough, always checking the facts and not assuming anything. ISTJs are also respected for their exceptional loyalty to their duty – their accuracy, patience and ability to concentrate make them ideal employees in many professions. Not surprisingly, people with this personality type gravitate towards traditional, hierarchical
    institutions – public service, law, military etc.

    Yup. that sounds like me. Funny...this is the exact same result when I was in HS too...haha
