According to the Myers-Briggs personality test, I am a Dreamer. This is an introverted personality type. Huh? I’ve always thought I’m both an extrovert and introvert, depending on my mood and who I’m with. This is the profile of the dreamer :
INFP – The Dreamer
INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole. INFPs are imaginitive, artistic and often have a talent for language and writing. They can also be described as easygoing, selfless, guarded, adaptable, patient and loyal.
Okay, this describes me to a certain extent but it isn’t 100% accurate. I’m not sure if it will yield the same results if I take this test another day. But I’m happy to note that many famous writers have this INFP profile, among them Amy Tan, Aldoux Huxley, JRR Tolkien, George Orwell, Laura Ingalls Wilder and William Shakespeare. I’m in good company if my personality type holds.
