Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings

I took a Carl Jung personality test at work today. These are my results and a link to the test.

ENFJ - "Persuader". Outstanding leader of groups. Can be aggressive at helping others to be the best that they can be. 2.5% of total population.
Free Jung Personality Test (similar to Myers-Briggs/MBTI)

I think that is a fairly accurate assessment. I'm always pushing people to do things that they are too nervous to try or show any hesitation about it. I make it crystal clear what they are capable of doing and if they aren't doing it I get pissed. I won't do it for myself though. Mike fills that need perfectly.

When you get into the nitty gritty of the results it's even more accurate, however I don't know why bookseller or DJ is in the list of undesirable jobs. I love books and I always daydream about being an awesome DJ- I make killer play lists if I say so myself. But this was also an Internet test, not the real thing. Besides, I went back and took it again and got this:

ENTJ - "Field Marshall". The basic driving force and need is to lead. Tend to seek a position of responsibility and enjoys being an executive. 1.8% of total population.

I guess it's safe to say I'm an extroverted, intuitive judger but I changed the thinker and feeler. That's strange because as a thinker I should stay away from the performing arts. The first result was the best yet because that is totally false. I guess that means I'm an ENFJ. Either way I am rare. And I dig that.

I have taken this test in different versions several times. I'm always an ISTJ. Interesting that we're almost complete opposites, but still friends... :)

Maybe it's part of the reason we are such good friends. We compliment each other!

I got ISFP which is 'Artist'. Woo hoo!

"Artist". Interested in the fine arts. Expression primarily through action or art form. The senses are keener than in other types. 8.8% of total population.
