You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.
Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.
It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.
But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.
You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.

At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.
You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak

23 Where do we go from Here?

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
That my technical skills have not yet atrophied and that my colleagues are as amazing as I have always suspected. Meezes are fun and RSS Feeds are not. Most IT problems are still permissions issues -- and Yahoo needs to STOP hijacking my Feeds when I want them to go to Bloglines.

This style of learning is very well suited to me. We have more computers than people in our house, and I like doing a little bit here and a little bit there as it suits me. I could not do this at work, it is too thought consuming for the Public Desk (at least for me) and the team environment I cherish in our workroom is the opposite of the solitude I require in order to write a coherent sentence. That others have managed to do this in that environment truly amazes me, vive le difference.
