The Dreamer Thinker

I've done this Personality Test based on Jung and Briggs Myers a few times over the years, and the results have always been constant. I am INFP/INTP.

INFP: Introverted iNtuition Feeling Perceiving - The Dreamer/Visionary
INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole. INFPs are imaginative, artistic and often have a talent for language and writing. They can also be described as easygoing, selfless, guarded, adaptable, patient and loyal.

"Highly creative, artistic and spiritual, they can produce wonderful works of art, music and literature. INFPs are natural artists. They will find great satisfaction if they encourage and develop their artistic abilities. That doesn't mean that an INFP has to be a famous writer or painter in order to be content. Simply the act of "creating" will be a fulfilling source of renewal and refreshment to the INFP. An INFP should allow himself or herself some artistic outlet, because it will add enrichment and positive energy to their life." - INFP Personal Growth (The Personality Page)

"INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glassworld where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities."- INFP Profile (TypeLogic)

"Their job must be fun, although not racous, and it must be meaningful to them. They need a strong purpose in their work. They want to be recognized and valued, without undue attention given to them. They may become embarrassed when make the center of attention. As a result, they may undersell their strengths in order to avoid being singled out and made to feel conspicuous. They would rather have their worth be noticed gradually over time."- INFP - The Dreamer (Lifexplore)


I find this to be pretty accurate. It's me! And fellow INFPs are people I've always liked/related to: AA Milne, George Orwell, Shakespeare, Princess Diana, and fictionally, Anne of Green Gables.


Now, my secondary INTP means that I alternate between being a Feeling from INFP to a Thinker, INTP.


INTP: Introverted iNtuition Thinking Perceiving - The Thinker
INTPs are logical, individualistic, reserved, and very curious individuals. They focus on ideas, theories and the explanation of how things work. They are especially adept at discussions and debate. They have the ability to focus intently on a subject. They appreciate and respect intelligence in others. 


"INTPs are relatively easy-going and amenable to most anything until their principles are violated, about which they may become outspoken and inflexible. They prefer to return, however, to a reserved albeit benign ambiance, not wishing to make spectacles of themselves."INTP Profile (TypeLogic)


"INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into. They live primarily inside their own minds, having the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge. They are the "absent-minded professors", who highly value intelligence and the ability to apply logic to theories to find solutions."- Portrait of an INTP (The Personality Page)

And again, some of my role models are listed! Yayyy! Einstein, Darwin, Descartes, Pascal, Socrates.


If you're bored, or curious, I'd definitely say this is a psychology personality test worth doing. There are many versions of it online, so you can just google Myers Briggs Test. A bit of a warning, the quiz was frustrating for me because I was very often stuck between two options for which I couldn't choose one over the other. But I guess it's the final choice we make that shows which is most dominant in us... The quiz I took told me that I was predominantly INFP but INTP was a close overlap. And I think it's very very true. It sort of reflects in the fact that  math and sciences, and english and arts are all things I am strong in.

If you hadn't known much about me, then this might give you an insight on how I tick - and if you do the quiz then you might understand what makes you you as well. Who knows.

Yours truly,
The Dreamer Thinker!

    "INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses"

    When I read over that, I kept saying in my head "yeah this is definitely IQ"

    1. I thought you'd be INFP also. I did this in-depth test that gave me layers upon layers of analysis with secondary and tertiary... I don't recall where I did it, or if it was part of something I did when studying psychology.. :/
