Further to previous: Personality type thoughts

I was sent a few e-mails about my last post,  (Thank you) suggesting that they mostly agree with my self-evaluation, however, I should find out my Myers-Briggs personality type, as it could give me a reason why I’m possibly maybe flipping to what is called the “Inferior function” in my personality in certain situations.

So, I did, and here are my results (There was an Enneagram Test in the same place as well):

Myers-Briggs type
ISFP – “Artist”. Interested in the fine arts. Expression primarily through action or art form. The senses are keener than in other types. 8.8% of total population.

So, I shopped around for some more information:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISFP
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enneagram_of_Personality
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nines_(Enneagram_of_Personality)

I must admit, the ISFP personality page from the test site seemed to have a great many negative words associated with it. I can accept their “pocket definition” easily enough, I’m so not comfy with the extended traits page at all. More thought required there! However, the Wikipedia page is a lot more expanded and helpful… 🙂

As to the Ennneagram Number? Reading the potted and then the expanded Wikipedia descriptors, I feel that is pretty bang on actually, including that my Vice type (“deadly sin”) is sloth… I can be very unmotivated/unmoving if there is nothing that *has* to be achieved… Oh, and is anyone that knows me at all surprised at my varient? 😉

So, now I need to learn how this information will help me.
