Har gjort en intressant personlighetstest…

Jag har gjort en intressant personlighetstest som jag verkligen vill rekommendera till alla. Ni kan göra den här.

Det finns allt som allt 16 olika personlighetstyper, och dessa är indelade i 4 kategorier:

Analysts – Architect, Logician, Commander, Debater.
Diplomats – Advocate, Mediator, Protagonist, Campaigner.
Sentinels – Logistician, Defender, Executive, Consul.
Explorers – Virtuoso, Adventurer, Entrepreneur, Entertainer.

Jag svarade på testets 100 frågor, så ärligt jag bara kunde. Vilket inte alltid var helt lätt, då frågorna var på engelska – och ibland lite krångligt formulerade. Men jag fick fram ett mycket intressant resultat; att jag tillhör personlighetstypen ENFJ Personality (”The Protagonist”).

Läser genom den rätt omfattande texten som förklarar min personlighet, och jag måste säga att det stämmer till 100 procent. Där jag själv eventuellt var lite osäker, där kunde Malin flika in och säga att så var det…

Resultatet börjar med ett citat, som skapar en helhetsbild av vem jag är:

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.  (David Deida)

Därefter läser jag följande:

ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, ENFJs take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.

Läser vidare på vad som är mina styrkor och svagheter:

ENFJ Strenghts

  • Tolerant – ENFJs are true team players, and they recognize that that means listening to other peoples’ opinions, even when they contradict their own. They admit they don’t have all the answers, and are often receptive to dissent, so long as it remains constructive.
  • Reliable – The one thing that galls ENFJs the most is the idea of letting down a person or cause they believe in. If it’s possible, ENFJs can always be counted on to see it through.
  • Charismatic – Charm and popularity are qualities ENFJs have in spades. They instinctively know how to capture an audience, and pick up on mood and motivation in ways that allow them to communicate with reason, emotion, passion, restraint – whatever the situation calls for. Talented imitators, ENFJs are able to shift their tone and manner to reflect the needs of the audience, while still maintaining their own voice.
  • Altruistic – Uniting these qualities is ENFJs’ unyielding desire to do good in and for their communities, be it in their own home or the global stage. Warm and selfless, ENFJs genuinely believe that if they can just bring people together, they can do a world of good.
  • Natural Leaders – More than seeking authority themselves, ENFJs often end up in leadership roles at the request of others, cheered on by the many admirers of their strong personality and positive vision.

ENFJ Weaknesses

  • Overly Idealistic – People with the ENFJ personality type can be caught off guard as they find that, through circumstance or nature, or simple misunderstanding, people fight against them and defy the principles they’ve adopted, however well-intentioned they may be. They are more likely to feel pity for this opposition than anger, and can earn a reputation of naïveté.
  • Too Selfless – ENFJs can bury themselves in their hopeful promises, feeling others’ problems as their own and striving hard to meet their word. If they aren’t careful, they can spread themselves too thin, and be left unable to help anyone.
  • Too Sensitive – While receptive to criticism, seeing it as a tool for leading a better team, it’s easy for ENFJs to take it a little too much to heart. Their sensitivity to others means that ENFJs sometimes feel problems that aren’t their own and try to fix things they can’t fix, worrying if they are doing enough.
  • Fluctuating Self-Esteem – ENFJs define their self-esteem by whether they are able to live up to their ideals, and sometimes ask for criticism more out of insecurity than out of confidence, always wondering what they could do better. If they fail to meet a goal or to help someone they said they’d help, their self-confidence will undoubtedly plummet.
  • Struggle to Make Tough Decisions – If caught between a rock and a hard place, ENFJs can be stricken with paralysis, imagining all the consequences of their actions, especially if those consequences are humanitarian.

Ni kan läsa vidare om vem jag är här; ni som inte känner mig får då en rätt så klar bild, och ni som redan känner mig kanske kommer nicka instämmande på det mesta. Åtminstone kunde min fru Malin säga att resultatet gav en rätt bra bild av vem jag är, på gott och ont.
