Happy Halloween guys! Who stays at home during a Halloween night? I do. I am not into Halloween. I am not into crowds. In fact, I have started tonight’s blog a bit early so that I can watch a classic movie like, “Forest Gump”. I know it sounds crazy! I am an introvert and as an excuse I can say I have work tomorrow, so I don’t wanna stay up late partying.
By the way, if you are like me as well and want to read a short story to kill a bit of time, then check this out: A Paranormal Halloween
Tonight’s topic is “Introversion”. What does being an introvert mean to you? Well, there are ten other definitions online and you probably have your own. But according to me, I enjoy spending some lone time with myself most of the time- that does not mean I am awkward or shy actually, or I lack communication skill. In fact I am quite honest and straightforward. Neither do I lack confidence. I just have an independent mind of my own. That’s it! But if you find my rare hidden buttons (my favorite topics) I can go on and on talking and giggling endlessly.
I have always avoided crowds since childhood. In school, all kids would scream and hustle down through the stairs. I would patiently wait until it gets quiet, then I would come down to go home.
According to the Myers & Briggs test, I am usually an INTJ. Pretty common personality type among engineers and scientists. I said “usually” because I took this test like 5 times. 3 times in recent past I got INTJ and couple of times recently got INFJ. Now when I looked at the spectrum of T-F, both time it showed 49% thinking and 51% feeling, which means I am still a borderline INFJ. Probably now-a-days, I am sub-consciously leaning more towards feeling, becoming more humanitarian!
It says that, INTJs are common among technical professionals but INFJs are rare individuals. Am I on my way to become a rare one? LOL. I do not know. People go through some period of transitions throughout their lives. I am probably no exception.
Anyway, I won’t make tonight’s post long. What type of personality are you? Does your personality type suit what you do? Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
