There's an online test based on Carl Jung and Isabel Myers-Briggs typological approach to personality which you can try at;
Just for the record, my scores on this test were; INFJ
- Introverted 33%
- Intuitive 25%
- Feeling 38%
- Judging 22%
- moderately expressed introvert
- moderately expressed intuitive personality
- moderately expressed feeling personality
- slightly expressed judging personality
I may lean towards introversion but I'm obviously not 100% introverted.
The test then pointed me to a page covering an; Idealist Portrait of the Counselor (INFJ)
The text of this page seemed fairly relevant to me - especially the opening paragraph;
Of course, some of my friends and relatives may beg to differ...
"Counselors have an exceptionally strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others, and find great personal fulfillment interacting with people, nurturing their personal development, guiding them to realize their human potential. Although they are happy working at jobs (such as writing) that require solitude and close attention, Counselors do quite well with individuals or groups of people, provided that the personal interactions are not superficial, and that they find some quiet, private time every now and then to recharge their batteries. Counselors are both kind and positive in their handling of others; they are great listeners and seem naturally interested in helping people with their personal problems. Not usually visible leaders, Counselors prefer to work intensely with those close to them, especially on a one-to-one basis, quietly exerting their influence behind the scenes. "
I'd be really interested to know how other people, both Aspie and NT score in the test. In particular, I'd love to hear from Aspies who score as extroverted.
