Hey, it's the new year. Test & classify yourself

Aren't you tired of just careening along from year to year, driven by forces (or voices inside your head) that you only, at best, dimly comprehend? I know I am. So this year, I decided to take an honest assessment of my strengths and weaknesses before starting out on my brave new life. I started on the internets, of course. And I found this:

A fun little personality test based on Myers-Briggs.

Just 72 simple yes or no questions, and you're on the road to improved performance through heightened self-awareness.

I discovered that I am an ENFP: Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving type. The folks here at Kiersey.com describe the type as the "Champion Idealist." I'll be a monkey's uncle if this doesn't sound like me:

"...This strong drive to unveil current events can make them tireless in conversing with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out."

In other words, the ENFP can be a relentless windbag. Mea culpa.

Sounds like the perfect blogger to me.

I did this test a while back and all it said at the end was 'smartass'. It's pretty accurate.

I, too, found out last year that I am an ENFP. We're rare, by the way, and I've been told we're the most likeable.

Melinda, 3% of the population. Aren't we special?

Dale, I'm searching for that kind of clarity in my own life.

Johnny, we're probably all people who would've been ham radio enthusiasts 40 years ago.

Hey, Melinda June and Bubs, Hannah and I are INFJ, and we're only 2% of the population! We may not be the most likeable, though...

I don't know. You seem pretty likeable to me...
