Ever since I have taken the MBTI test not too long ago, I have been researching and gleaning information about my type. (On a side note, if you don’t know what type you are, I encourage you to give it a go! It’s more fun than you think and it helps you see yourself from the outside in. It’s a fascinating way to think about how you interact with others, deal with stress, view the world etc. Well, I find it fascinating…whether you do or not is out of my control…)
*Okay, I’m going to totally nerd out on you guys. You have been fairly warned. Just keep that in mind.*
My type is INFJ. The thing about INFJ’s is that even though we are introverted, we are infatuated with people. All kinds of people. According to several sources, an INFJ turns into a ‘social chameleon’ when interacting with others. This means that we can seem so comfortable talking to other people and we tend to mimic others’ personalities and blend into the social circle. Some might even assume we are extroverted! (Imagine that…)
I know I see this in myself. It seems that I can catch on to how a person acts within a matter of seconds and the next thing I know I am mimicking their posture, movements, expressions etc. Pretty weird, huh? It’s not that I am trying to ‘fit in’ or be just like anyone else, it’s just natural.
I tend to easily feed off peoples’ emotions and ‘vibes.’ I look for emotion and try to find the source of it. I tend to ‘study’ at a safe distance and draw conclusions in the privacy of my mind. I love getting to know a person and finding out my hunches were right. It’s such an adrenaline rush! (Okay, that was really nerdy.)
I am still collecting facts about my personality type and I am continually amazed at the accuracy of it all. It’s as if I am looking in a mirror. So, what’s your type? Any fellow ‘chameleons’ out there? I would love to hear from you!
Have a great one wherever you are!
Loads of Love,
