ISFJ


Good afternoon, y'all! I'm coming at you with post #2 of the day ; ) Today for Blogtember is all about personalities! I have taken the Jung personality test a number of times over the years, but I thought it would be fun to take it again to see if it had changed. Funny enough, it changed slightly. For so long I was an INFJ but now my results came back as ISFJ but only slightly on the so I guess I am just somewhere in between an INFJ and ISFJ ; )


"ISFJ's are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their "need to be needed." In extreme cases, this need is so strong that standard give-and-take relationships are deeply unsatisfying to them; however, most ISFJ's find more than enough with which to occupy themselves within the framework of a normal life. (Since ISFJ's, like all SJ's, are very much bound by the prevailing social conventions, their form of "service" is likely to exclude any elements of moral or political controversy; they specialize in the local, the personal, and the practice.)"

"While their work ethic is high on the ISFJ priority list, their families are the centers of their lives. ISFJ's are extremely warm and demonstrative within the family circle--and often possessive of their loved ones, as well. When these include E's who want to socialize with the rest of the world, or self-contained ITs', the ISFJ must learn to adjust to these behaviors and not interpret them as rejection. Being SJ's, they play a strong emphasis on conventional behavior"

Surprisingly enough, the top career fields for ISFJ's are social work, religious education, education, and counseling. This is pretty spot on for me. I was a social work major in college before switching to education and becoming a teacher, I lead a small group at church, and I really enjoy all aspects of counseling. 

I love reading about my personality and why I do things the way I do them. It's really good to be self-aware and to also be aware of the way others live. I have had my whole family take this quiz and read about themselves ; ) 

I hope y'all enjoyed getting to know me a little better today.

What is your personality type??
