Just a little diversion from the current nutrition related themes. And because it’s my blog after all, I can throw in whatever interests me, I just hope that what fascinates me might be useful or interesting to you too!
There are many different personality profiling tools, and this is a topic that has always fascinated me. Some years ago I was introduced to the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. It was one of those discoveries that when I found out how I operated in the world as compared to others, gave me light-bulb moments. It forever changed how I saw myself and made a big difference in how I understood myself and how to understand and work / live / deal more successfully with the people in my life.
You see – I’m rather a rare type when it comes to personalities (at least in the MBTI model) and seeing myself so clearly, at least I for the first time saw myself how others had always perceived me – was a wow moment for me. “So that’s how come I am the way I am!” “That’s how others view me!”
Here’s the test – give it a go and see if the profile / description fits.
And in case you wondered – I am an INTP (Introvert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Percieving)
“Seek to develop logical explanations for everything that interests them. Theoretical and abstract, interested more in ideas than in social interaction. Quiet, contained, flexible, and adaptable. Have unusual ability to focus in depth to solve problems in their area of interest. Skeptical, sometimes critical, always analytical.”
So now you know me! (Although – there is more to me than this!) But don’t take this as truth, it is just one tool – but one of the more useful personality typing tools / models I’ve found.
And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if many of the more science orientated nutrition blogs were written by NT’s (intuitive thinkers)!
