I came across a post today on The Blog Herald. The author, Andrew was discussing an article he had read wherein 64 graphic designers were given the Myers Briggs personality test. If you've ever been a candidate for any kind of professional job, you may've been asked to take this test, as potential employers often use it as tool to "identify" your "fit" within their company.
Though it's been several years since I had taken this test (and thought I had forgotten what "type" I was), it was interesting to note that upon reading the type descriptions, I quickly recalled that I am an ENFJ. ENFJs are generally regarded as "Warm, empathetic, responsive, and responsible. Highly attuned to the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. Find potential in everyone, want to help others fulfill their potential. May act as catalysts for individual and group growth. Loyal, responsive to praise and criticism. Sociable, facilitate others in a group, and provide inspiring leadership." While this is written in the most flattering way (there are no negative attributes given), I DO feel this adequately describes me and my motivations. So, I'm still wondering what the majority of the 64 graphic artists turned out to be? Any guesses?
