I am a 23 year old female from Canada. Personality typing is so intriguing to me but it was completely unknown to me until just recently, on New Years Eve of 2010 when I found myself extremely out of place in a house party in a town where I barely knew anyone! I was led to MBTI by someone I barely knew at the time, but who is now my boyfriend (He's an ENTJ and I say this very happily) He sort of nicely corner me with a point blank question "Are you an introvert or an extrovert?" which totally caught me offgaurd. He'd been curious about me for a short while because I didn't say much but he ultimately knew that it was all brewing in my head which was just inaccessible to him.
Most people who meet me perceive my quietness in 2 ways: she's cocky, overconfident and doesnt mingle cuz she thinks she's too-good-for-us OR they get intrigued, find me mysterious and try to pursue me to open up. On two ocassions I have had someone refer to me as someone "exotic" - which I think it just meant that people can't figure me out. I don't blame them haha, I have a hard time understanding myself. But over the years, it's been a frustrating process for me to be understood in either of these ways and wondered why I was attracting such thoughts about myself when I did even do anything to provoke it. My boyfriend urged me to take the MBTI a few days after that night at the party. I finally came to some revelation with the MBTI. I was typed INTJ and to think it all started at a party! Apparently INTJ's don't do parties (its been true for me). I want to keep learning about myself and keep discovering how INTj's fit into the world and find meaningful relationships. I am really excited to be here!
