Who am I? An INFJ

This is me, June 2015

It seems like a lot of people enjoyed my Introversion post from the other day.  Good!  I’m glad that more people understand who I really am now and that more people can identify with introverts because there is a smaller population of us in the world versus extroverts.

In the same stream of thinking about “who am I?” recently and wanting to be more in tune with myself, I also came across the 16Personalities test a day after I wrote the post.  I’ve seen friends post their results from a similar test (Myers-Briggson test) on social media before but never really thought to take the test myself to see what my results would come up with.  The other night, I took this one and was surprised to find out that I am categorized as one of the rarest personality types out there — INFJ.  Hmm.  It says that I’m “the advocate”.

Turbulent Diplomat XD

Your personality type: “The Advocate” (INFJ-T)
Strength of individual traits: Introverted: 51%, Intuitive: 51%, Feeling: 75%, Judging: 19%, Turbulent: 47%.
Role: Diplomat
Strategy: Constant Improvement

It was late at night so I only skimmed through some of the quite in-depth “analysis” of my personality and I was surprised to find that I identified with most of it pretty well.  Looking at it again, here are some of the parts that I identify with, screenshot for your curiosity purposes and also for my future personal reference.  I believe that personality can change so it’ll be interesting if and when I do this test again in the future and see if any of the elements change.

My personality type makes up less than 1% of the population!!?!

I agree. What’s your purpose here in life?

Oh, yes. Please give me time to recharge so that my true self can be revealed. Otherwise, it’ll be a moody quiet person just glaring back at you wanting to retreat

There are so many things I want to do, but every so often, I really need time to re-find myself again


So true. That’s why I’m single right now. Unless I think you’re truly special and compatible with me, I don’t think the relationship will be worth it

Yep. None of that fake stuff

Are you curious what personality type you are?  This test only took less than 5 minutes for me to complete and all of the results are actually quite accurate.  I was quite pleased.  I’m not trying to sell this site at all since I have no affiliation with them, but if you like, you can also see what kind of personality you have and see if what it says about you is true.  These are 16 of the personality types that they identify on the site:

Take the test below and then take my poll to see what your personality falls under!

    We are like… ALMOST twins! I’ve been taking these personality tests for years, and I find what’s interesting is that my character has changed every five years. For example, I was ENTJ five years ago, and that made sense because my goals required me to be ENTJ at the time. I’m pretty sure I went from “I” to “E” in third-year university because my job and my ability to get a “professional” job required me to be more extroverted. This year has been a transformational year for me, and I wouldn’t be surprised if, in five years’ time, I become more “I” than “E.”

    Not sure if you’ve ever heard this Ted talk, it’s pretty interesting! https://www.ted.com/talks/brian_little_who_are_you_really_the_puzzle_of_personality

      Haha, I really enjoy personality tests too but I guess I can’t be too bogged down by them from time to time because we definitely change as people as we grow up. I think it will definitely be interesting when I re-take this test a few years down the road like you have and see if my result changes or stays the same. Ah, thank you for the Ted Talk link. I’ll check it out sometime! 🙂
