I am an ISFJ-A Individual

Day 1: Describe Your Personality

Like my friend, Kiki, wrote on her blog post, day one already started with a tough challenge: describing my personality. I'm always having difficulties to explain about myself. But, for the purpose of this challenge, please let me try with a help from 16personalities.com.

I had written about my personality test that was taken sometime in the past, but that was very brief. Now, using the same result from the same website, I would like to elaborate more, just like Kiki did. She's just such an inspiration. Ha, ha.

Here's my complete profile

As you may see from a picture above that I'm 75% introverted. Yes, I'm an introvert. I realize that since a long time ago. I prefer to do things alone. I like being alone, because being in crowded space really drains my energy. For me, it takes a lot of effort to socialize. I also don't really like being in a spotlight. I enjoy more focused "alone time" activities, such as blogging, reading, watching movies or series, and listening to music. 


It says that I'm 59% observant. According to the website, being observant means "highly practical, pragmatic and down-to-earth. They tend to have strong habits and focus on what is happening or has already happened." It's not entirely match with the real me, I guess. Because I often overthink something that hasn't happened. 


I'm 65% feeling individual. The description says "Feeling individuals are sensitive and emotionally expressive. They are more empathic and less competitive than Thinking types, and focus on social harmony and cooperation." Well, it's true. I feel that way.


I'm 64% judging. It says "Judging individuals are decisive, thorough and highly organized. They value clarity, predictability and closure, preferring structure and planning to spontaneity." I don't think it's entirely true. I'm not decisive, in fact, I'm a terrible decision maker. I'm neither thorough nor highly organized. Truth is I'm a disorganized. But, it's true that I prefer structure and planning to spontaneity.


As a 64% assertive individual, it's supposed to be that I am "self-assured, even-tempered and resistant to stress. They refuse to worry too much and do not push themselves too hard when it comes to achieving goals." Well, yes, I'm more like relaxed and laid-back type. I'm not an ambitious one. 

For this post, I re-read the article explaining what ISFJ-A is. It restores the memory. I agree with the explanation in some place, but I also disagree in some other place. It doesn't describe me 100% correct, but it's okay though. Through this personality test I can understand more about myself. If you want to understand more about yourself, you can try to take the personality test from the website which link I have already given above.
