Mill Hill and Meyers Briggs

Like the white rabbit it seems I’m perpetually behind these days. I’m also having problems loading certain sites including WordPress blogs. Many are painfully slow. I sometimes give up and try another day.  Has anyone else had this problem?  To cut back the lag on my own I lessened the number of posts displayed and deleted some widgets as per WP support and I hope it has helped.

I enjoy getting glimpses of the person behind a blog I follow by his or her unique images, words, and/or humour- and so I come to the personality test.  Though I’d like everything done yesterday, it seems I’m easily distracted! According to Meyer’s Briggs I  apparently, am an introvert and loner. Though friendly, INFP people can be in danger of becoming hermits!  Idealistic dreamers, INFP’s  are the quintessential “hippies.” They are attracted to sad things yet love an adventure- and according to the study are often writers (I like that one).  As  fellow blogger Disperser points out, our egos pick out the qualities we like to think describe us but that personality tests are not accurate analyses of who we are. Instead ask a family member (!) or someone who we’ve recently met what they think of us!  oh-oh!!

The test is based on  Meyers Briggs and Jungian typology and is not too long. My daughter did it and the results for hers even including her choice of career were uncanny. Anyway it’s fun so here is the test site.

 http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp.   Let me know what you are!!

And here is my dreamer’s vision of the beautiful woodland.  There are two paths, one flat, that meanders with the creek and one with a gentle (ha!) incline to the summit of Mill Hill. The one right behind my deck is the foot of  the hill which I have yet to climb. I’m getting to the stage where I don’t want to climb every mountain but I will still follow every forest path and ford a few streams.

    I knew what result I’d get even before I did the test – INFP. 🙂 I think there are quite a lot of us inhabiting the blogosphere! Gorgeous pictures, as always, Cybele. And I’ve always loved the song ‘Jennifer Juniper’, as well. 🙂

  3. I hope your unpacking is going well, I can see by that last picture you’re working hard 🙂 I once took a test at work and they said it was just as well I had empathy otherwise I’d be a complete recluse. But according to the test I’m an INFJ, a popular choice judging by the comments!

    I got: ENFJ – which makes sense. I’m a person of many conflicts so I’m not surprised I came out pretty much in the middle with the introvert/extrovert label.
    Extravert(3%) iNtuitive(38%) Feeling(16%) Judging(12%)
    You have marginal or no preference of Extraversion over Introversion (3%)
    You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
    You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (16%)
    You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (12%)

    I strongly suspect that if I did this test, the result would be very similar to yours. 🙂 I’ve always been an introvert and don’t have a problem with spending hours in my own company doing things I love to do, like writing. Having said that, I’ve really enjoyed having a blog and connecting with people all round the world. Many are obviously very outgoing, extroverted people, whose confidence and ‘go-getter’ personalities almost bounce off their pages. But the people I spend so long talking to, come across as much more reserved and sensitive types.
    I absolutely loved Donovan’s songs when I was younger, and still do although they aren’t played nowadays as much as they were in the ’60s. His songs all had a lovely dreamy sound to them, and I do remember him singing ‘Jennifer Juniper’.
    I’ll have a look at the test and see what it comes up with for me.
    I hope you continue to enjoy following every forest path and fording a few streams. That’s what makes life wonderful.

    1. Enjoy the test! I’m with you. It is fun to connect with so many folk in so many places. I get inspired by so many! I love meaningful conversation and such. YouTube is great for looking up people and obscure songs etc. I always love old folk songs and such as those collected in the Child Ballads. Thanks so much for your support Millie!

    Sorry, totally busy so no time for the test at the moment, Cybele, and anyway I don’t want to break it. Not climbing every mountain seems the way to go to me, isn’t it something like something I’ve long thought >>> “there are many experiences in Life but they’re not all worth having”. WP comes and goes with its troubles, but its never a nippy loader. Love the squinty woods mono here. A 🙂

    I’m having trouble with WordPress loading too and my site is fairly minimal.

    I have always tested as an INFP. It’s interesting that two of the people I spend the most time with in SL are also INFP’s which I didn’t know for a while. We can spend hours talking and we do so often. I don’t feel like being a loner when they’re online.

    I used to like sad things but I don’t anymore.

    1. Hey Pearl! Your blog is fine for me but others are so slow sometimes I just give up. I try again another day as they say. Isn’t that interesting about personalities! we find similar folk to ourselves! I visited Elle’s show by the way- very fascinating effects with that program!! Thank you for blogging about it.

    So, you want to know about my test? It just so happens that I took a test yesterday at the convention I’m attending. The test was set up to match you with a character in the Star Trek Universe (i.e. using the score you get to match you with a score a character in the series would have based on their actions).

    The problem? They could not score me.

    I ended up exactly equal parts E/I and exactly equal parts J/P, a smidgen more S than N, and a solid T.

    So, what am I? They could not tell me. Your online link (and most I’ve taken in the past) score me as INTJ, but the emphasize “moderate”.

    The problem with these tests is that the questions themselves can lead to differing answers depending on how they are interpreted.

    Here’s a decent critique of the Briggs-Meyer test:
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201401/what-you-dont-know-about-personality-test-can-hurt-you
    http://www.centreforconfidence.co.uk/type-resources.php?p=cGlkPTM1MQ==

    My own personal opinion of the tests — after extensive reading and research — is that it’s not much more valid than personalities defined based on astrological signs (I’m a Leo, therefore a leader, therefore, I’m confident I am right, so don’t even bother arguing with me).

    Ultimately, I think people look for anything that validates their self-image. For instance, I can read about INTJs here:
    http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality/intj

    . . . and without even realizing it, I will nod in places I agree and skim over or ignore parts that don’t fit (most people do this without realizing it).

    But, if you really want to know who/what/how you are, ask one friend, one enemy, and a person you’ve only just recently met. They will tell you your best qualities, your worst quality, and generic qualities you exhibit when at your most guarded. Mesh them all together, and voila’!

    Hmmm . . . I should call that the Disperser-Tracks test.
