INFJ - The Protector

Earlier today my wife sent me a link to an online personality test. I love these things. It’s been a while since I’d taken one so I filled it out and was quite impressed with the accuracy of the results. Here they are:

~ You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.
~ Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is.
~ You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.
~ You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.
~ You would make a great Clergyman, Teacher, Medical Doctor, Photographer, Musician or Artist

To take this quick personality test yourself click here: Blogthings

If you take the test please leave me a comment with YOUR results!

Have Fun!

Thanks Keith!


  1. Hi Babe:

    This my results:

    I'm a ENFP - An inspirer

    You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends. You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
    Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
    You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!

    You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

    I'm not sure what they mean by colorful language because I don't cuss. :)

    BTW - Under romance we are a perfect match, but who needed this test tell us that.

    Love you,

  5. I'm also an INFJ -- read my blog post here.

    ...did you know Garfield the cat is also an INFJ? =O)

    Cathy & I recently took the official MBTI within the context of our marriage relationship.

    Took the in depth Meyers Briggs test at 16, and sure enough, results then were the same as now. I'm still an ENFP!

  7. I run this Personality Types page and I'm always into reading more about it. I'm an INTJ, but close to INFJ. Sometimes they call that being an INXJ.
