I’ve taken the Myers-Briggs personality type test a few times to my recollection, and each time I’ve ended up with the personality type INFJ. It’s so interesting how accurate the results of this test are to me, because I can be kind of a skeptic when it comes to these online analyses of an individual’s characteristics.
The test takes about 10-15 minutes, where you are to try to answer questions that ask you how you’d respond to certain scenarios. Based on your answers you are then categorized into one of sixteen personality types. All of the categories are made up of pairings of the different categories: Extraversion vs Introversion, Sensing vs Intuition, Thinking vs Feeling, and Judging vs Perceiving.
INFJ personality types are described as: idealistic, organized, insightful, dependable, compassionate, gentle, harmony and cooperation seeking, and are those who enjoy intellectual stimulation. INFJ’s are also nicknamed The Advocate and are said to make up less than one percent of the population. This is so interesting to me.
The Advocate personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As members of the Diplomat Role group, Advocates have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is that they are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.Advocates tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.
