Personality Take 2

I know I did a post about this awhile back, but I have new readers since then... and besides, I never tire of this topic.


It's my favorite. If there were such a job, I would be a personality consultant. Actually, there probably is, but I think I'm going to stick to graphic design and multimedia... especially after my last post. *grin*

Click here to see my personality type description

Click on that to read all about me. Since... I know that most people's goal in life is to have my complete personality memorized, this link shoud help you all out tremendously. Kidding... but this link will give you the opportunity to take a test and figure out what your type is... so do it! Seriously. You'll never regret it. The secret of life will finally be revealed to you about who you are... ha ha.... but really, it is very interesting and freakishly accurate!

I love you all.

ESTJ one this test. The last test I was an ESFJ. If I had to guess, I would say this put me too far down the "thinking" path. I'm kind of right in between, but I don't know.

krisT said...

ISFP.. Hmm. I guess..

natz said...

That's weird. Me and Ashley just did these as an assignment in our Psychology class. I was an INFJ. If you go to http://www.personalitypage.com/high-level.html you can find out what title you have. I'm The Protector.

taryn said...

Natalie- that's my favorite site for looking at personality. I like the personal growth section, and I think it does a good job at describing each type. Plus, it's religious.

It was good seeing you last night at girl's bible study!!!


Heather said...

I am an ISFJ.

Accordning to that I am: Quiet, kind, and conscientious. Can be depended on to follow through. Usually puts the needs of others above their own needs. Stable and practical, they value security and traditions. Well-developed sense of space and function. Rich inner world of observations about people. Extremely perceptive of other's feelings. Interested in serving others.

yeah, that pretty much summed me up.

I like this!!! I sound perfect!!!

taryn said...

Heather- what did you do, just copy and paste the good parts? *smile* No... I know you didn't. I know that your personality type is nothing short of perfection.

An ISTJ is my polar opposite. Good thing you have that feeling preference (F) or else we'd clash pretty bad.


Jenny said...

Guess what Taryn, I'm an ISTJ. :) Hm..we seem to get along pretty well regardless.

jOeL said...

ESTP?? It stands for Extrovert, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving? Im definently in Luke's boat because Im sooooooo not 15% thinker. Oh well

Jake G said...

Wow!! I am a Perfomer...ESFP...I found this very interesting. I remember doing this for college and career planning. I am amazed at how accurate it is. The description of the ESFP seems right on for me...Thanks for the post! Very good stuff!!

-If you havn't checked out the website Natalie posted, you are missing out! You might be presently suprised at how accurate this all is.

Luke said...

Jake...now you have a name? Man, you better draw the line somewhere or you're going to end up with your own blog, I'm tellin' ya.

taryn said...

I love the website Natalie posted, it is one of the first ones I ever researched personality on. I find it very accurate and helpful, and it goes in depth about a lot of stuff. It's sad, because I think I know about every website there is out there devoted to personality typing.

Jake- you are definitely an ESFP. Thanks for finally identifying yourself.

Luke- Jake will never start a blog, but I know he secretly wants one.

krisT said...

Whoa, this a lil scary now that i know what an ISFP.. Difficult to get to know well. They hold back their ideas and opinions except from those who they are closest to. Whoa, so true! I've certainly learned a lot about myself today.

Will said...


Extrovert: 31%, Sensory: 47%, Thinking: 1%, Perceiving: 13%

Famous ESTP's: Anakin Skywalker (pre-Vader) From Star Wars


I do not recall taking any of these in school for anything.

I would say that personality type can change. In high school I would definitely consider myself an introvert, but as most would say now I am definitely not that today.

taryn said...

Kristi- I know, isn't it scary?

Will- I agree. I was an introvert all through Jr. High/High School as well, but I have definitely developed into an extravert.

krisT said...

I printed off the explanation and it's so dead on.. Whoa..

Will said...

For NSTP personalities: Jobs include--Sales Representatives ,Marketing Personnel,Police / Detective Work
Paramedic / Emergency Medical Technician, PC Technicians or Network Cablers,Computer Technical Support, and Entrepreneurs

None of which I have had an interest in.

However for ISTP careers:
***Engineers*** I am
**Carpenters** I love
*Mechanics* I like
*Motorcyclists* I may be buying
*Athletes* Love to play

Maybe should have taken one of these earlier.

Kristi said...

I am an ESFP. I guess thats me??? I dont know, let me know what you think.

taryn said...

Kristi- I thought you were an ESTP the last time we took the test? Hmmm... I think you could go either way but I'd say you are an ESTP over ESFP.


jake said...

the fact that I'm commenting on this blog is PROOF that I will do anything to avoid doing homework.

I'm an ESTP but I'm sure the test would say I'm something else if I took it again. And why does it match ESTPs with a picture of a CHICKEN?

taryn said...

Jake Fischer, are you saying checking my blog is only a last resort to avoid doing homework?


Ha ha, kidding... but thanks for stopping by, and thanks for supper the other night. It was amazing.

jake said...

T, c'mon! Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying anything bad about your blog, it's actually pretty cool. Any blog that has spiritual content gets a thumbs up as far as I'm concerned.

I was just saying the only reason I even found out you HAD a blog was because I was blog-surfing instead of starting on the mountain of homework looming over me.

It went a little something like this: check jon's blog like always...check amanda's blog...check mark miller's blog...getting bored, what else could I do. Click on links to mark's friends' blogs... and about 4 blogs later end up here.

And all that used up over an hour, so I guess it served its purpose. Although it was a wasted trip to the library...

By the way, does anyone else think that blogging can be addictive? At least when jonnyeb gets a good discussion going, I notice that I check for new comments compulsively.

Again, that's probably just so I can get out of actually doing homework.

taryn said...

Yes, I know exactly what you mean... blogging IS addictive. I told myself I would never EVER start a blog about 6 months ago, and look where I am today.

If I don't post within 48 hours, I feel withdrawal symptoms...

Kidding. But I, too, get caught up in the whole "checking comments" thing. And I have many faithful readers who, although they claim will NEVER start a blog, check mine daily and are addicted to it.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a hard time... I know that blog-surfing is a weakness for some, but I totally support it to avoid doing homework. Homework is overrated.
