After months of putting it off, I finally carved out some time yesterday morning to take the “16 Personalities” test. It’s a free online survey that only takes about twelve minutes. So, honestly, I don’t know why I had put it off for so long. Maybe because I already knew I’m an INFJ from another test I took a long time ago.
But in any case, here we are. I took the 16 Personalities Test and…
IT WAS AMAZINGLY INSIGHTFUL.
Most of us are familiar with Myers-Briggs’ personality types which contain a stream of four letters (INTJ, ENFJ, ISTP, etc.) that denote something about our personality. However, the 16 Personalities test, by NERIS Type Explorer, takes it a step further by providing a more detailed explanation and insight into the results. It also adds another letter to the standard four-letter acronym. Instead of just INFJ, My results this time was INFJ-T.

Whether you believe in the accuracy of such tests or not, it doesn’t hurt to give it a try and see how well it actually describes you. Just be sure to answer honestly.
As to what’s the point of all this, I’ll end with the following quote from the website.
“The information on this website is meant to inspire personal growth and an improved understanding of yourself and your relationships – not to be taken as gospel…the more people are aware of strengths and weaknesses related to their personality traits, the better and more understanding this world will be for everyone.”16personalities.com
