Subject: I'm an INFP - what personality type are you?

Forum: I'm an INFP - what personality type are you?
I was reading about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) recently and am curious to know what types of personalities we have here in the forums!

In case you aren’t familiar with it, there are 4 pairs of traits and when your preferred traits are combined you have a 4-letter type. To determine your type, from each pair (see below) select the trait that is most natural, comfortable, or easiest for you. This doesn’t mean that you don’t also use/possess the other trait, just that this is the one that comes most naturally.

Once you’ve got it figured out (or if you already know), share it with the group and include it in your tags!! Let’s see what type of personalities are here!

Brief description of the pairs…more info available on google!
Extroverting/Intraverting – how you prefer to get your energy (this is not the same as being outgoing)
Extroverting – are energized by being around people
Intraverting – need time on their own to feel energized

Sensing/iNtuiting – how you prefer to take in information
Sensing – take information in through the 5 senses; prefer to think about things as they currently are
iNtuiting – taking information in through the “sixth sense” or gut feeling; prefer to think about how things could be

Thinking/Feeling – how you prefer to make decisions
Thinking – decisions are based on logic and reasoning and whether decision is fair/just
Feeling – decision are based on personal values and how decision affects others’ feelings

Judging/Perceiving – how you prefer to live your life outwardly
Judging – prefer to have things settled; adheres to rules and deadlines
Perceiving – prefer to keep options open; sees rules and deadlines as flexible

Forum: Are you a dog person or a cat person?
Hi JeneluRose,

I am definitely a cat person although we always had dogs growing up. My cat's name is Kurtis and he's 16 years old. I've had him since he was a week old. I think what I like most about cats...or at least about that he can be cuddly at times, but he also likes his alone time. I'm very much the same way! It seems that pets and their owners often have qualities in common, sometimes even the way they look. As for your kitties - I can't imagine having 5 cats!!! At times I can barely keep up with one!

Forum: What is your biggest flaw?
I think it's interesting that several people posted qualities related to being introverted. I too am an introvert and I often feel that it's one of my biggest flaws.

What is it about being introverted that makes it sound like a bad word? I don't feel like there's anything negative per se about being quiet or reserved but our culture does seem to tell us it is. Why do you think that is?
