I decided to take this quick online personality test as the Myers & Briggs Foundation site entails more effort than I have the energy for at the moment. As well, I’ve taken the test more than once since I was 20 years old. Here are tidbits of my results from 16Personalities. As a whole—

Your personality type: “The Defender” (ISFJ-T)
Strength of individual traits: Introverted: 61%, Observant: 13%, Feeling: 25%, Judging: 35%, Turbulent: 55%.
Role: Sentinel
Strategy: Constant Improvement

The link below is an excerpt from Myers & Briggs Foundation site referencing my type in result. 


Quiet, friendly, responsible, and conscientious. Committed and steady in meeting their obligations. Thorough, painstaking, and accurate. Loyal, considerate, notice and remember specifics about people who are important to them, concerned with how others feel. Strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home.

While all of this is true, here are the specifics from the 16Personalities. Pretty interesting to read on all of it. 

The ISFJ personality type is quite unique, as many of their qualities defy the definition of their individual traits. Though possessing the Feeling (F) trait, ISFJs have excellent analytical abilities; though Introverted (I), they have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though they are a Judging (J) type, ISFJs are often receptive to change and new ideas. As with so many things, people with the ISFJ personality type are more than the sum of their parts, and it is the way they use these strengths that defines who they are.



Ohhhhh how the two bolded statements above relate to ME! ha


  • Supportive
  • Reliable and Patient
  • Imaginative and Observant
  • Enthusiastic
  • Loyal and Hard-Working
  • Good Practical Skills


  • Humble and Shy
  • Take Things Too Personally
  • Repress Their Feelings
  • Overload Themselves
  • Reluctant to Change
  • Too Altruistic

The following links lead directly to the descriptions of each topic for the ISFJ personality:

Career Paths

Work Place Habits  broken down by subordinates, colleagues, and managers

There is a conclusion as well, however I prefer not to include that because it always seems to be leading toward the purchase of another “full” test etc. blah blah blah is what my brain said. (ADHD at it’s finest)

    Don’t believe everything these tests “tell” you about yourself. Take it all with a huge grain of salt my dear!

    Hope all is well and thanks for taking the time to read it. Randomness is good for the mundane 🙂


  3. I needed to leave a comment, man do I’ve a difficult time writing
    a blog. Im aiming to kick start one on my website and I have to say

    able to write about anything with ease. Keep up the nice work!
