1) I still can’t smell or taste due to my nose surgery stuff and my veggie garden growing up there.
2) I still can’t get my “plug and play” printer to play nicely.
Last night as Marty lay here snoring, I was up doing a Myers Briggs personality test. Marty’s been “shrunk” by shrinks a gazillion times in his work, so he’s pretty well versed in this personality delving. http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp. When I shared my results with him, we almost crapped our pants!
I kid you not: ISFJ – Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging – I know you’re laughing at the “introverted” party, my kids’ babysitter can attest to that.
“ISFJs (that’s my personality, apparently for this test), above all else, need to be needed. Often unappreciated, at work, home, and play. Ironically, because they prove over and over that they can be relied on for their loyalty and unstinting, high-quality work, those around them often take them for granted–even take advantage of them. Admittedly, the problem is sometimes aggravated by the ISFJ themselves. They are unwilling to toot their own horns (I JUST BLOGGED ABOUT THIS!) about their accomplishments because they feel that although they deserve more credit than they’re getting, it’s somehow wrong to want any sort of reward for doing work. Because of all this, ISFJs are often overworked, and as a result may suffer from psychosomatic illnesses.”
Ha! Holy crap. Well, I was speechless, for a moment. It usually doesn’t take me long to start up again. The exact situation just happened about being taken advantage of, which was partly my fault, being that I needed to be needed in the first place. Hmpf. As for the psychosomatic illnesses, ummmm…..I don’t know, so far every surgery I’ve had has pulled out deformed, defunct, dysfunctional pieces of funk in me. Proof is in the pudding. Whatever that means.
But it might speak more to my “depression” that some people think I have that I don’t have – I just prefer to stay safely in bed.
You have to try this, then have your mate try it. See why you can’t stand each other!
Also says I’m possessive of my family – check. Family is my priority – check.
It also said ISFJs are extremely loyal – check. This is why my nephew, Nick, says, “you don’t F with my Aunt Sarah”. You just don’t or you go onto my LIST. But I will protect you, fiercely if I love you. Sometimes this is not a good thing.
Think of Ophelia in Hamlet!, Melanie in Gone with the Wind, Bianca in Taming of the Shrew. Wait, maybe they didn’t have enough of those questions on there about formidableness. Or maybe they covered that section with their loyalty? Does it imply a ISFJ goes batshitcrazy with their loyalty?
The best part of reading all this is that I am not a freak. Do you hear me, children, well, child? I am not alone – in fact, there’s a huge whole category of peeps like me. I am not a freak. I am not a freak.
Love, Little Miss Freakless Sunshine
