Personality Types

Because I identify as an ambivert, I place both an extroverted and introverted personality type, i.e., the Myers-Briggs personality placements or indicators. And according to Google, the definition of an ambivert, is:

My major in college was General Studies and in one of my courses, we needed to take the Myers-Briggs test so our teacher could understand how to help us in our intellectual ways. (Like with homework, and how to improve our test questions) So naturally, it was difficult for me to choose which “side” of me to identify with, but if I separated them, I cam up with the same two results: ISTP  and ENTP. Of course, if you don’t know what those two mean, then those are just acronyms for something that you could be totally unsure of. So, let’s begin with my introverted side:

ISTP

ISTP pretty much stands for: Introverted Sensing Thinking Perception, and are known as the the virtuoso. Each personality has their own name, and each of them have different traits regarding their personalities. So, for example, it could be said that ISTPs (i.e. my introverted side) love to explore with their hands and their eyes, touching and examining the world around them with cool rationalism and spirited curiosity. (I will NOT touch you) People with this personality type are natural Makers, moving from project to project, building the useful and the superfluous for the fun of it, and learning from their environment as they go. (I love to write and I will flip from project to project, like I do when I crochet) Often mechanics and engineers, ISTPs find no greater joy than in getting their hands dirty pulling things apart and putting them back together, just a little bit better than they were before. (I do not do this) 

Weaknesses:

Now these are the ones that are partial to me, not to all ISTPs:

  • Stubborn
  • Easily Bored
  • Risky Behavior

Strengths:

  • Relaxed
  • Creative and Rational
  • Optimistic and Energetic

ENTP:

Now this is my ultimate super socialized form, that if you see me in a social setting, I am this person, and it scares people. The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. (yes, this is me) Unlike their more determined Judging (J) counterparts, ENTPs don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. (Yes again, me) No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points.(Seriously, I love this side of me, but it’s hard to maintain it)

Weaknesses:

  • Very Argumentative
  • Insensitive
  • Intolerant
  • Can Find It Difficult to Focus
  • Dislike Practical Matters

Strengths:

  • Knowledgeable
  • Quick Thinkers
  • Original
  • Charismatic

All in all, while these two personality types help define me as a person. And while I may seem like an asshole, why not be true to yourself?

Thanks for even looking at this,
