"Caring for your introvert"

I can't help myself when it comes to personality tests and learning the personality types, the quirks and the ins and outs of the people around me.
It's fascinating. It's like candy.

So out of curiosity...what are all y'alls personality types?!
There should be a facebook application for the Myers-Briggs or you can take it here.

But this was the article that got me thinking, it's all about introverts (joy!).
"Caring for your introvert"

"I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush."

Weirdly enough, I've been obsessed with this all morning. I'm an ENFP. A textbook ENFP. That analysis is eerie, man. I'm beyond pleased to share a personality type with Mark Twain. :)

"The Nurturer"

Quiet, kind, and conscientious. Can be depended on to follow through. Usually puts the needs of others above their own needs. Stable and practical, they value security and traditions. Well-developed sense of space and function. Rich inner world of observations about people. Extremely perceptive of other's feelings. Interested in serving others.

(Ditto for Sara Houy and Annie Skroski)

I'm going to print out that article and just hand it to people when they make comments like the ones in the text.

Also, I'm not a big fan of personality tests. Granted, they have some descriptive value for understanding people, but generally I find them poorly written and restricting. Anyway, I took the test twice, answered honestly both times, and got ENFJ and INTJ; only the J value was the same for each test.

and the N. :)

Well, by "value" I meant that for the J I got a 44 both times, but I scored a little higher on the N the second time.
