Although I’ve seen this floating around the blogosphere, I’ve been curious to take it myself since seeing it first at Grace’s site.
For personality type, I’m an ENPF, an Advocate. According to this test, "ENFPs are introspective, values-oriented, inspiring, social and extremely expressive.
They actively send their thoughts and ideas out into the world as a way to bring attention to
what they feel to be important, which often has to do with ethics and current events.
ENFPs are natural advocates, attracting people to themselves and their cause with
excellent people skills, warmth, energy and positivity. ENFPs are described as
creative, resourceful, assertive, spontaneous, life-loving, charismatic,
passionate and experimental."
Without taking time to read through all the other types, this seems about right for me; obviously, with exception, but not too far off, either.
Probably the funniest thing to me, though, is the apparent company I "keep"–other famous ENFPs include (among others) Carol Burnett, Bill Cosby, Sandra Bullock, Lewis Grizzard, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Bob Dylan and………James Dobson. Interesting and somewhat amusing list, yes?
For the Multiple Intelligences side, it’s not a surprise (to me) to score high in Verbal/Linguistic and Interpersonal; it is a bit odd that the next highest category is InTRApersonal. Extroverted AND introverted? Comparing the characteristics of those two lists, no wonder my husband calls me "complex" (please note: complex is NOT the same thing as high maintenance…).

I took the quizzes… I’m an ESFJ. Too bad about the J part. I guess we all have our faults!! And my intelligences were musical and verbal/linguistic (95 and 90 percent!).
I took it – will post it next Tuesday (after the Fun Monday)
I took the test and posted it on the Melon Patch. It was really fun.
I took it!
I’m an INTP. 🙂
Oh yeah, I put the chart up. I’m pretty much opposite of you!
okay – I decide to put it up for Sunday – why wait, right?
I’m game…took the test, now I’m reeling at how accurate it was, I’ve never really gotten that good a view into my psyche before! Cool!
No way I’m taking that. I failed a rorschoch test once. Don’t ever tell them that you see a crustacean in one of those.
At first I did not think the test was really correct at all, but after reading more into it, I think for the most part it was dead on.
The MI…..says I am 100 percent Naturalist, which is funny to me. I like being outside but more of a girly girl. Maybe deep down inside I love it more than I think?
Thanks again for sharing this quiz, it was really fun to learn more about myself. 🙂
