Addicted to Personality Typing

YAY!  I have gotten the lateral move to a new part of the Company!  I will be doing some really fancy oil accounting stuff that I have not had the chance to delve into before.  Learning is great.  Not surprising given that "Learner" is #3 on my Strength Finders 2.0

My Top 5 Strengths
1 Connectedness
2 Strategic
3 Learner
4 Responsibility
5 Intellection

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
The MBTI preferences indicate the differences in people based on the following:
How they focus their attention or get their energy (extraversion or introversion)
How they perceive or take in information (sensing or intuition)
How they prefer to make decisions (thinking or feeling)
How they orient themselves to the external world (judgment or perception)
  • My energy source is internal.  I need to recharge in my solitude.  Being around people drains my energy.  I carry my own batteries around.  I am an Introvert.
  • I see the forest, then focus on individual trees. My iNtuition score is off the scale in every version of this test I have taken so far (and I have done it 3 times, once in uni, twice in the workplace).
  • I make decisions based on my Feelings. 
  • I tend to withhold judgement and delay important decisions.  Perceiving the world as it is... I have a very flexible sense of time in my personal life,  My professional training and children ground me in the real world.  Otherwise, I would be la-di-da-ing all over the place.
If there are any Belbin "Plants/Shapers" / MBTI "INFP" / connectedness-strategic-learner-responsibility-intellection people out there who would like to get in contact, please leave a comment.  On the other hand.... maybe talking to my mirror is not such a good idea after all.  BUT I am sure we will still find something to discover about each other :)
