Some of the best qualities of Feeler personalities -- the “Fs” of the Myers and Briggs personality system -- are their kindness, empathy, and their ability to think about others. Feeling personalities follow their instincts and trust their emotions to guide them in their professional and personal lives. That’s one of the reasons why they have such beautiful, lasting relationships.
In the world of improvisation, there is one foundational principle that all improv actors live by, and that is the concept of “Yes, And...”
The idea behind this is that when two performers walk out on stage together for an improv scene, the first to speak may say something like, “Wow, the waves sure are getting choppy, Captain.” This gets the audience to start envisioning a pirate ship on rough waters.
Your personality type influences every aspect of your life, including your closet!

It can be difficult for anyone to decide which of Myers and Briggs' 16 personality types fits them best, but INTPs especially may have a particularly challenging time settling on their type. Personality type results might conflict with who an INTP would ideally want to be—which can distort the test accuracy further.
Are you an INFJ personality type who has taken the Enneagram test? If you are, I’ll take a wild guess that your type is an Enneagram Type 4. Even though the Enneagram uses a completely different model of personality typing to the 16-type theory created by Briggs and Myers, many INFJs seem to wind up as Enneagram Fours. Let’s explore why.
I love speaking to others just after they’ve taken a personality assessment based on Briggs Myers' typology. I want to hear their reactions, what they learned, and how they plan to use this new information about themselves. However, what fascinates me the most is how people with the same personality traits use them differently throughout various parts of their lives.
Are you an INFJ that finds yourself questioning why you feel so different? Maybe you’ve read the description of the INFJ personality type and that’s made it a little easier for you to understand yourself. But…something’s not quite gelling. The typical run-down of INFJ personality traits includes sensitivity, empathy, introversion, creativity, a strong values orientation and organization as some of your top strengths. But what about the other traits you observe in yourself?
Type A Personality. It looks good on a resume. It sings of straight A’s on your report card. And, like it does in the alphabet, it implies good things to come while standing at the head of any line.
As a matter of fact, if you’ve tossed the phrase “I’m a Type A personality” out as a brag at your latest job interview, the implications are clearly defined in your mind: you are a multi-tasking, hard-working, results-driven individual who will put the job first. In your eyes, there is no “second”. You are driven to succeed and win.
Ambiverts have contemplative ideas like an Introvert and also possess the ability to sell or implement those ideas in a competitive environment like an Extravert. This ability to ‘flex’ with the situation is widely valued in society. Known as the ambivert’s advantage, even blends of extraversion and introversion are in demand in the workplace and in personal spheres. As a result, ambiverts tend to find greater opportunities in their relationships and careers than people who sit at the more extreme ends of the personality spectrum.
