I've been studying the MBTI for years and none of the descriptions seem to fit me. I've come to realize that I am an intuitive; however the feeling/thinking factor still seems to elude me. To others I come across as frank, brutally honest, competitive, opinionated, and confrontational. On a different note, I can also come across as warm, and enthusiastic and I've stretch my neck out for others. For example, at work I found out that a co-worker didn't get anything for Christmas, so I got everyone to surprise her with a piece of jewelry that I knew she wanted at out store. So, some may say I have a big heart; others think I'm mean. I don't mean to say things out of spite though. Half the time I don't realize I've hurt someone's feelings and if I have, I'm quick to apologize to make things right.
I was a teacher and I loved teaching children and connecting with them on a personal level; however I didn't get along with the teachers. I refused to do things that I didn't agree with and and a result, I alienated myself from others. Currently, I work in a retail store and I like it. I love helping people find things to decorate their home and making them happy. However, I have alienated some co-workers with my frank nature. Another thing that may go against being a 'thinker' is that I am a strong animal cruelty advocate. I am a vegan and I am appalled by the way that animals are treated in factory farms. Give me one thing to cry about and it is watching an undercover abuse video. Other than that, I have dry eyes and I am not really emphatic with people. I get very uncomfortable. Oh, I also volunteer at a animal shelter and I give medicine to sick animals. My husband says that I only seem to have empathy for animals, and maybe he's right.
I also hate chitchat. I hate going out and socializing with people-even family gatherings bore me. However, I'm not shy. It's just I'd rather be at home researching whatever interests me on the computer or reading fiction. I'm constantly wanting to learn things and love to explore everything. I love problem solving as well. That being said, the math and sciences were difficult for me in school(however I will research info on arctic foxes for 2 hrs, which I did the other day). I love psychology, literature, etc. I'm very creative.I love writing fiction, photography, digital painting and design, crafts, etc.
So, is it possible to be 50/50, thinker and feeler?
