It's not that I have a chip on my shoulder. No, I'm more of a cookie kind of girl. I understand that personality tests allow Fortune 500 companies to analyze where to place their new recruit- if they care enough.
So why did it fall upon the hands of civilians? Ignorant, gullible, backward civilians? I've taken several versions of the test several times, and each time, the response has been different. I seem to be a very multifaceted person. Or I have split personalities. Regardless, people- this is going too far.
It's like the new psychosis. Everyone must know what your personality type is- whether you are intuitive or logical- and that will decipher how they think of you in their scale system of value. First of all, for anyone who thinks a man-made test can pinpoint the exact coordinates of a person's personality, your ignorance is enough consolation for me.
Psychologically speaking, a person has so many facets, so many layers, they're never truly just one thing, or another thing. For example, I can be extroverted in social groups, but I can be introverted with a different batch of people. I'm never just one way- and neither is anyone else.
A person's core personality can't change you say? That's a load of barnacles. Before, my core personality was to trust everyone without doubt or question. It was my nature. Now my nature is to poke everyone with fifteen foot branch in the ribs to see if they'll bite.
I know what you're thinking. "Well, maybe that wasn't your core personality." And you know what I'm thinking? This blog ain't big enough for the two of us. So go rant about it yourself.
I think I know myself pretty well. After, myself and I, we've been buds for near 2 decades now. Myself is a sweet, funny person- witty and kinda silly sometimes. And no darn words is gonna tell me who I is.
But really- anyone who takes their result as law and values anyone they meet or have known for several years as letters or colors, (ispj, enfj, infp.. blue, yellow, white or red) is an idiot. And not worthy of even my friendship, so I don't bother, and neither do you.
The human personality is constantly growing, constantly outdoing itself, constantly morphing. It's more than a psychological test designed years ago has the capacity to reign. Is the test itself garbage? No, I discovered some things about myself, and others, and explained some tendencies I have. But it never hit it right on the head. It wasn't me, 100%.
Anyhow, I believe its much more interesting to follow life and find out for yourself just how your personality works. Or doesn't.
