Miss Understood

So, yes....I deleted my last post. It wasn't a scandalous post by any means, but it was a post that could be misunderstood, or easily judged. Can I tell you one of my fears?
                                                    Being misunderstood

This isn't a profound or surprising fear...I'm fairly certain that nobody likes to be misunderstood. When we chat on the phone, or even through email there is more control. We can catch most misunderstandings and reverse them. Hopefully. Blogging....that's a whole 'nother thing. When we share our thoughts, happenings, and hopes we leave ourselves vulnerable for judgement or misunderstandings. That's just the way it is, and that's why you will sometimes see me delete a post. Read quickly, friends....you just never know when it will disappear. Ha! Not really. I promise not to be that bad.

So, recently my girlfriend sent me this free Jung/Meyers-Briggs personality test. I found out that I'm an INFJ. Seems I am a protector. Greg took it and found out that he's an ENTJ.... an Executive. We read our profiles to each other and could not believe how accurate they seemed. It actually helped us to understand each other more.....to cut each other a bit more slack because....hey, it's just part of our quirky personality.

Y'know what is interesting? If you read the profile of an INFJ it's pretty clear that I'm just the type who would delete a post for fear of being misunderstood.
 Even my desire to constantly organize yet never feeling organized is characteristic of an INFJ.

Take the test! It was interesting. Let me know what your personality type is. When you find your letters, then go to the personality type page to read your portrait.

I knew what I was but decided to take it again...same result: ISFJ. No wonder we like and understand each other so much - we are both protectors! That description is exactly me!

Happy Birthday ;)

I'm so glad you took the test. I agree....no wonder. And you just have too good of a memory. You are so sweet.

I don't know what to think about my results, because there were times I would have liked to have a 'sort of' or a 'not really' option. Ah well! It is what it is.... INTJ.

I know what you mean, Ruth. I had that happen, as well. I just went with what I would choose most often.
Thanks for sharing your result!

Carole, I know! I could not believe the square peg/round hole pic....how long have I said that's how I feel?!Wow!
It was a post about Ross waking up dancing in his sleep to an Adele song.

Yeah, that's one thing I've found in blogging...being misunderstood. Oh well, I can't do anything about that but be somewhat careful of what I put out there. :) Hope you are well my friend.
