I keep testing as an ESFJ... But I really think I may be an ESFP. I just don't know about my J. Yesterday I took a few different personality tests and tried to be more true to myself on the tests. I struggle answering with how I really am, I always tend to answer the way I want to be... So I think maybe that's where the J is coming from...
Here's a little bit about me...
I can't be somewhere on time to save my life. Doctor's appointment? Always stroll in right on time or five minutes late... Work? Might as well set my shift to start at 7:05 AM instead of 7 AM because I'm never here at 7 AM. Telling someone I'm walking out the door? Not gonna happen, 10 to 1 says I forget something and end up piddling around the house for another 10 minutes.
If I want something I find a way to buy it right that minute. Seriously, I just did this today. I wanted a new camcorder... So I did an hours worth of research and used up a gift card and ordered it. Broke my iPhone 3GS (for the second time), gave up on fixing it, instead just went out and bought a new iPhone 4. I'm definitely an impulsive buyer... That's for sure.
I don't care for affection. I've never been one for affection. I think part of this is growing up an only child and my mom smothering me though... But I really don't like cuddling. My fiance always wants to hold my hand and I do it just to make him happy, but if he doesn't grab my hand I won't grab his.
I'm social, but not... By that I mean, I tend to like being around people... As long as it's like 3-5 people at the most... Anymore than that and I clam up and get really quiet. If it's a group of up to 5 I can be really talkative. I usually just stay home and watch movies or play around on the computer, but if we get invited out I'll typically go.
Always thinking about stuff. It seems like my brain doesn't have an off switch. I average anywhere from 4-6 hours of sleep because I have a hard time falling asleep if I don't have something to distract my thoughts. it's really infuriating to watch my fiance lay his head down and fall asleep in 5 minutes flat. He claims its the military in him. You learn real quick any time you get a chance to sleep you take it. And the thoughts are all over the place... Things like what bills do I need to pay, what do I need from the store, wonder what the next homework assignment is gonna be like, is my job really secure, etc...
I seem to change my mind daily. I'm constantly changing my mind about things. Three weeks ago I was going to one school for psychology, this week, I dropped that school and applied to another school for sociology instead. I know that's not a drastic change, but the other majors I've had are computer information systems, architecture, engineering, legal assistant, and then sociology, which turned into psychology and back to sociology.
Always scared of hurting someone's feelings. I try not to sugar coat things, but I can't help it sometimes. I'm always afraid that something I'm going to say is going to upset someone. I joke around a lot, and it can be kinda harsh at times. My mom and a few other people have taken me a little too seriously and been offended by things I've said before.
I don't really care much for traditions. I like to be different. I would rather create my own tradition than follow the norm.
I have a lot of friends, but don't stay in touch... I do have a lot of friends/acquaintances, but I am horrible about keeping in touch with people. I'll go 6 months to a year without talking to some of them. I really only talk to my family, my fiance and his family, and my best friend on a regular basis... And even my best friend I really only talk to about once a month anymore. The rest are all people I consider family... Which, is another trait of mine I guess, family means a lot to me.
Sigh... I am just way too good at manipulating the test to get the results I want... So the tests don't help me figure out my type. I really think I may be ESFP though, not ESFJ. I can relate to some of the traits of the following types: ESFJ, ISFJ, ISFP, ESFP, and a little bit of ENFP. It's just a matter of figuring out the one I relate to the best. All right.. Whatever, just gonna toss this out there and see what people think. I'm still getting settled into my new house... So if I can get some quiet time I plan on trying to do the video thingy.
