Monsters

I took this test from Monster.com and this is what it said:

I am an INFP:


Life as an INFP (Intravert, Intuitive, Feeler, Perceiver) -

People of this type tend to be quiet, reserved and kind; deeply passionate, sensitive and easily hurt; loving and dedicated to those close to them; creative, original and imaginative; curious and flexible in small matters; nonconforming.

The most important thing to INFPs are their deeply held beliefs and living in harmony with their values.

Great careers for INFPs
Here are just a few popular and often satisfying careers for people whose Personality Type is INFP:
Psychologist
Human resources professional
Physical therapist
Researcher
Translator / interpreter
Legal mediator
Employee development specialist
College professor: humanities
Massage therapist
Social worker
Librarian
Fashion designer
Editor / art director

And then if you click on the link "Do what you are" and do the free personality test again it says:

Introvert, iNtuitive, Feeler, Perceiver (INFP)
INFPs represent between 4 and 5% of the U.S. population. (I'm special...haha j/k)

INFPs value inner harmony above all else. Sensitive, idealistic, and loyal, they have a strong sense of honor concerning their personal values and are often passionately committed to making sure their beliefs and actions are congruent. INFPs are also extremely perceptive about people. They value their uniqueness and typically seek unconventional ways of doing things. Sensitive and empathetic, INFPs tend to be exceptionally adept at reading between the lines. Although they demonstrate cool reserve on the outside, INFPs care deeply inside. They are compassionate, sympathetic, understanding and very sensitive to the feelings of others. They avoid conflict and are not interested in impressing or dominating others unless their values are at stake. INFPs seldom express the intensity of their feelings and often appear reticent and calm. However, once they know you, they are enthusiastic and warm. Feeling truly understood and respected for their unique perspective and strong values is important for many INFPs.

So what do you all think? Sound like me? I don't think that I necessarily do things unconventionally and, as my mom told me last night, it's not that I'm perceptive at reading between the lines as it is that I read into things. Ha.

What I find interesting is that I have looked into psychology and phyical therapy and I'm already specializing in human resources. Also I've always said my dream job would be an editor, why not an art director too. So what to do now...

I'm still going to go talk to the lady. I was looking into physical therapy last night for kicks and giggles and I'd only have to take about 21 more hours of prerequisites after I graduate. Hmmph. I still have no clue.

I've taken similar tests, and I'm an INFJ. We're a lot alike! As you get older, you will find your gifts develop. I took the safe route in college. I think you should look into your heart and find your passion. Easier said than done, right?
