    • ISA

    • June 14, 2015 6:56:34 PM PDT
    • Interesting...I got IAS, although in the past, I've usually scored AIS on that test. Maybe because I'm considering some sort of career in the sciences right now.

    • I got

      Z (advocate) 97%
      E (enterprising) 71% / I ( investigative) 71%
      A ( artistic ) 40% / S (social) 40%

      = ZEA. ZIA. ZES. ZIS

      The advocate type (z)
      Advocates types present themselves basically as humanists, who have a sincere desire to
      Contribute to the evolution of the human race. Idealistic, a little ecessive and adventurous. They believe in the evolution of people and the respect of educational values. One could say that these 'righter a of wrongs' have a broad and deep vision of what can be beneficial for all
      Living beings. They are not afraid of difficult fights. They have developed a planetary conscience.

    • I scored IRA, witj a strong "I" and very close results for the other traits.
      Interestingly enough, my job is listed as IRA-typed.

      I had the same result with another online test, though I came out with a strong S (on the same level as I) and a very weak E.

      Well, this is my first time hearing about that Holland Code, I'll be sure to investigate further.
      Thanks :)

    • SER for me, scored exceptionlly high on all 3, others trailed way behind. Fits me rather well, social person, business minded and very practical.

    • I scored IAS at
      This personality is paired up with antropology, political science, and sociology research, which is exactly the field I am in.
      These results have been more accurate than the test I took at, where I scored SEI, and was paired with historian, organizational psychology, park naturalist, and school administrator.

    • Oldest of two, INFP.

    • Well according to my mom, I was very calm and well behaved. That and I had a big knack for helping out and drawing (still do, even). But I [was] a picky eater. Took me a long time to eat eggs and red meat among other stuff. Might've been passive-aggressive too from time to time.

      I know that last bit too well, though. We INFPs tend to emulate the mood of the person we're interacting with. If the conversation is tense, we stay serious and do what we need to to listen closely. But if the other person is enthusiastic about something, we want to match that and join the fun.

      This kind of appropriation is usually best for going with the flow of social settings, or helping/hearing someone out with a personal problem; though I assume your daughter's been having issues with that, right?

      One piece of advice I [can] give so far with confidence is:

      When something bad happens, don't put all your anger on her, even if she made the mistake.

      Chances are, she's beating herself up over it a million times a minute already. It'll only get worse if you decide to rant at her. Best thing to do is keep calm and let her know things will be okay. In the case of her messing up, just be patient and clear with what you're explaining.

    • Thank you for asking. Umm I wouldn't say a hassle but definitely a bit of a challenge... On one hand she's such a sweetheart very caring, compassionate, artistic... But on the other hand she's extremely oppositional, moody and seems to not be able to separate herself from what others are feeling. I'm curious, Are any of these things common for an INFP growing up? And if they are any advice?

    • Do you find it's easier to raise an INFP, or a bit of a hassle?

    • Interesting, well I'm the oldest INFJ

    • May 28, 2015 2:16:44 PM PDT
    • Wow. Middle child and INFP here, wasn't expecting this to happen :P

    • May 27, 2015 8:46:33 AM PDT
    • Only child, INFJ.

    • Oldest, INTP.

    • Oldest of two.

    • I am a middle child of 4 children and i am an ENFJ

    • May 22, 2015 12:09:55 AM PDT
    • Also the middle child, two sisters. Also INFP. :)

    • May 22, 2015 12:06:56 AM PDT
    • Post if you're an oldest, middle or youngest? Maybe the topic of birth order's possible correlation to personality is way exhausted, but I'm interested to see if you all think there are trends between mbti and birth order. I'm a middle child (3 girls) I imagine that many INFPs are middle children because of the quiet mediator thing

    • Or a wolf.

    • October 16, 2014 6:57:51 PM PDT
    • Cat? Yeah, that sounds about right.

    • October 16, 2014 10:59:08 AM PDT
    • There was a website that gave the ideal animal that fits best for each type. INFJ was a wolf, ENFJ was an otter, and I don't remember the rest.
      Given I haven't studied animal behavioral tendencies, I'm really not sure if it's accurate.
