I may have mentioned before that in a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) class the teacher badgered me a bit about whether or not I was really an INFP since I had tested so close to the F/T (Feeling/Thinking) line and really, so often women who are Ts are socialized to think that they are Fs and shouldn't I consider the possibility that I might be something else?
Eventually she saw the look in my eyes that said any minute I would pull my War Mace +3 against intrusive Extroverts and wandered away.
People at work also have a hard time believing that I'm an Introvert because I'm so freaking friendly and perky and do presentations and meeting facilitation. One ISTP who is also something of an MBTI expert tried to argue me point for point on how I was really an ENFP. We eventually agreed to disagree.
Admittedly, when I read INFP profiles I always feel that they are a bit "off." Sometimes I even question myself. Then I read all of the other profiles and reconfirm that INFP, although not perfect, is the closest to being me.
So tonight I was very excited to find an INFP profile written by INFPs. It is much, much better. One person from the group that drafted it said, "The INFP list has developed our own profile of the INFP personality type, as we were unhappy with the profiles that were already out there on the Web. I personally find the other ones deeply unsatisfying and disturbingly inaccurate in some essential ways." Amen, sister.
