Lately I’ve been really intrigued by personality types. Coming to terms with being an introvert, learning what that really means, and owning it, has been a cool journey. At BlissDom I got to hear Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, (affiliate link) speak about the power of introverts. Last night I re-read my ISFJ profile and identified with every line.
Why It’s Important to Know Your Personality Type
I think for me, learning about the things that make me tick, the reasons I often feel unappreciated, and the natural instinct I have to avoid conflict answered a lot of questions for me. It also helps me explain myself to other people, to know what kinds of jobs I’m best suited to, and to come to terms with the fact that there are certain things I will never excel at. Knowing these things make me a better blogger, better business owner, and a better wife and mom.
Know Your Spouse’s Jung Type Personality
Reading my husband’s personality profile is always entertaining and educational. I’m and ISFJ and he is an INTJ which makes us each other’s enigma. Nice. We don’t have a clue about the other person. But you know what? Sitting down and learning this stuff together is awesome, because it gives us a glimpse into the way the other thinks and feels.
