Hello,

I'm Deborah. I'm a writer, currently seeking representation/publication for my YA Fantasy Fractured Princess

Friday Freeday Express Yourself: MBTI

Happy Friday!

And welcome back to Express Yourself, created by Dani @ Entertaining Interests and Jackie @ Bouquet of Books. They ask us questions each week to get to know us, and this week they asked us to take the MBTI Personality Test to see where we are on the spectrum.

My results are:

ISFJ
Introvert(89%)  Sensing(25%)  Feeling(12%)  Judging(22%)
  • You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (89%)
  • You have moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition (25%)
  • You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
  • You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (22%)

I tried to go with my gut answers, so I think that's pretty accurate. I'm reading the description now, and WHOA, extremely accurate, especially this little tidbit:

ISFJs are 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 ISFJs themselves; for instance, they are notoriously bad at delegating ("If you want it done right, do it yourself"). And although they're hurt by being treated like doormats, they are often unwilling to toot their own horns 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 (which is supposed to be a virtue in itself). (And as low-profile Is, their actions don't call attention to themselves as with charismatic Es.) Because of all of this, ISFJs are often overworked, and as a result may suffer from psychosomatic illnesses.

And also:

Like most Is, ISFJs have a few, close friends. They are extremely loyal to these, and are ready to provide emotional and practical support at a moment's notice. (However, like most Fs they hate confrontation; if you get into a fight, don't expect them to jump in after you. You can count on them, however, to run and get the nearest authority figure.) Unlike with EPs, the older the friendship is, the more an ISFJ will value it. One ISFJ trait that is easily misunderstood by those who haven't known them long is that they are often unable to either hide or articulate any distress they may be feeling. For instance, an ISFJ child may be reproved for "sulking," the actual cause of which is a combination of physical illness plus misguided "good manners." An adult ISFJ may drive a (later ashamed) friend or SO into a fit of temper over the ISFJ's unexplained moodiness, only afterwards to explain about a death in the family they "didn't want to burden anyone with." Those close to ISFJs should learn to watch for the warning signs in these situations and take the initiative themselves to uncover the problem.


That one, especially, gets to me, as a Cancerian. The Cancer Zodiacs I follow on Twitter always pinpoint us as being moody, but they never say there's a reason, and there's ALWAYS a reason.  Grr.

Anyway, thanks for asking us to do this quiz, ladies!
