Snuggle Might Just Be My New Homie

Yesterday Kristen from Confessions of a Graphic Design Student posted about her results from the Jung personality test. Which got me thinking...

When I first went to school I was a psychology major (why did I ever change majors?!). After my first general psychology class my senior year I was addicted. The how and why of human nature, and all of it's abnormalities, interests me to no end. How many people do you know that have asked for the DSM IV as a birthday present? (now you know one!) I'm entranced by it all things phobia and disorder.

I have a fascination with serial killers the way Tony Montana likes blow.

You know? A lot.    

In keeping with my love of psychology, I took the test to see where I fell amongst the 16 types of personality. I'm sure I took when I was a bright-eyed college freshman but let's face it, that was a decade ago (holy fuck). Ladies and gentlmen, followers and stalkers, I am an...

A what???

You can read about me here. Basically it says I'm better than you. No really. It says that I have "tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes" (welcome to my crazy) and that I have "tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship" (If you're interested in a bridge...) It notes that "Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously" (At one point I was at school FT, at work FT, at work PT and going out on the weekends. I think this is me in a nutshell.)

"ENFJs know and appreciate people." Seriously? Of course I know people. Who else would I know? But appreciate them? Um. well, I appreciate the idea of them... I think. Basically, people as a whole irritate all the bodily fluids out of me (except blood...that's for me). Appreciate is a strong word here.

Of course I'm not the only ENFJ out there. I've got some great company:

Abraham Lincoln
Barack Obama
Sean Connery
Dick van Dyke
AlyssaGoesBang
Tommy Lee Jones
Michael Jordan
Johnny Depp
Oprah
Peyton Manning
Bob Saget (you know what? someone else can have him)

Oddly enough, I find this little bastard to be pretty accurate.

  1. Hahhaah nice! I'm INTJ, so I guess I'm not charming enough to be a serial killer...

  3. I keep forgetting which one I am but it also seems to change every time I take the test. I'm always a rarity though. One of those ones that less than 5% of people are. In fact the first time I took the test I was part of the 1%. That is only 1% of people had the same personality type, I'm not some kind of rich banker.

    hehe, I read about serial killers all the time. The Prince is so creeped out by it. I'm all NO IT'S SO INTERESTING.

    I'm an ENFP! So we're almost a match but not quite.

  5. So, of course I had to take this and I'm an Introverted,Sensing, Thinking Judging, famously personified by: Lance Armstrong, Warren Buffet, Donald Rumsfeld, Greta Garbo. I'm gonna go take that test again and lie about everything. Or, you know, bang my head against something.

  7. Perhaps not but you have a horde of temperamental talking animals. There's hope for you yet!

  8. I started to do the test and then got impatient.  I'm pretty sure this explains my personality in itself. =P

    RandyGirl will LOVE that Snuggle pic!

    I don't like the idea that I fit within some "category" of people. I'm an oddball, so I might just break the test. That, or like Kat, I'm too lazy/impatient. Yeah, let's say that one.

  10. Bahaha.  Bob Saget.  Bob Saget is now your best friend.  No take-backs.
