My apologies, dear readers. I really wish I had a pre-written blog post, because today I have no inspiration. I tried to write thought-provoking posts, when all I have this week is, “His name is Jesse!” I guess I could tell you the first story that comes to my head, so you all can get to know me a little better.
High school. When I was in high school, there are two categories I was put into: bi-sexual, and bi-polar. Even to this day, when people think I’m bipolar and I ask them why, they cannot give me a clear answer. But now I actually know why. On the subject of being accused of being bi-sexual, that one I can pretty much presume a logical explanation.
I am an INFJ. This probably doesn’t mean much to about half to two-thirds of you (although, I’m not quite sure, my readers are pretty intelligent). I once read that the personality type INFJ is rare. I also read that we are both type A and type B. I must say, this is absolutely true. One day I’ll wake up and crave people’s attention. The next day, I want everyone to stay as far away from me as possible. This is where people get the idea that I am bipolar (although, people who are bipolar do not change every day. Their moods last from a week to a month, says someone I know who is bipolar. It might be different for everyone, I haven’t done much research). Let me assure you, I most certainly not bi-polar.
This is probably why I have no friends. I also read, “This confuses people.” Going from super hyper and talkative and social, to being anti-social, quite, and wanting to be alone, I can see how people would be confused and not want anything to do with me. And quite honestly, I’m ok with that, because I have plenty of people in my life who could care less that I am this way (thank you to all of you, by the way).
It’s not that I don’t know myself, but honestly, I learn a lot about myself that I could never quite put my finger on. I’m a huge fan of taking personality tests to discover the inner workings of my being. God already knows all of this, and so much more that humans could never imagine, and I love learning about how He made me. In my opinion, the way my personality is, makes me believe that it somehow separates genuine people who really like me, from fake people who don’t. It is definitely God’s way of protecting me from certain people, and it took me 21 years to figure out how He did that.
As for being bi-sexual, I believe this comes from the type A side. When I’m an extroverted type A, I’m an extroverted type A. No, I don’t flirt not hit on females, but my comments and/or gestures might come across as someone who does. Thought when these comments and gestures come out, they are towards females who I know, know that I am joking. But to be very honest, my strongest personality is a type B introvert. That’s the one I spend most of my time being.
If you would like to learn more about me, click here. This will tell you all about INFJs. Just know that when you read it, you are pretty much getting a really deep look into my soul.
If you would like to know what you are, click here. Take this quiz, then go back to the first site, and click on the letters that you are, and get to know yourself a little better.
I found out about these sites from a book I read. In it, the author suggested that you take personality tests to see what kind of jobs fit your personality. Coincidentally (or not) the first or most appropriate job for my personality is…a writer (or journalist). Ha! I knew before I knew.
Tell me in the comments below (not above?): What is your personality type? What are some suggested jobs for you? Do you agree or disagree?
Well, that’s it for now. I will have a book review up on Monday, and then next Friday will be my first blog post about NaNoWriMo (see NaNoWhatNow? for details, if you don’t know what it is already).
Good bye, and I shall talk to you soon!
