I recently read an article where 64 graphic designers were asked to record their Myers-Briggs personality type results. For those of you unfamiliar with The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), it asks the taker a series of questions (there are no incorrect answers) and then generates a four-letter acronym that lumps people into one of 16 personality-type categories.
An argument on the validity of the test is for another day. Plus you have to pay (anywhere between $29 – $100) to take the questionnaire. Since most of us are fiscally-challenged, let’s take an unofficial poll. Which personality type do you THINK you are? Realizing, of course, that your self-view might be off the mark.
It’s a lot to read through but worth the time. The better we understand who we really are, the more realistic we can be about our goals and future plans, and that my friend, can lead to greater blogging success.
This morning I’m lumping myself in with the INTJ crowd. Do I have any company?
