I only wish it was that easy. But, this piece does make it easier. I can't remember which Jim Carey movie it was that he physically beat himself up. I think it was either Liar Liar or Pet Detective. I think it's a good depiction of what it looks like when we fight our natural born bent. I have included a link to the test. At the end of the test click the link and it will interpret your answers. Don't worry, the men in white coats won't show up at your door. No wire taps, feds, or any of that. :-) The only trick to this test is answering it truthfully. Don't answer the questions according to the way you wish you were. Answer according to the way you "really" are. It's for you......no one else. At this particular website they provide a link to your personality which gives some general info which is worth looking at. But.....after you read that then Google your personality type and start exploring. I'll bet you will be amazed.
RedPepper had mentioned a desire to step outside of her personality to experience being alone. It's natural for all of us to want to experience what is outside of our given strengths. We are creatures that explore on many levels. The trick is not fighting who you really are in that process, it's important to know with certainty that your true strengths are not weaknesses. I am an INFJ. My personality is represented in one to three percent of the world population. I'm described as a counselor. I began listening to other people's problems and could easily sense what they were feeling as far back as I can remember. I am like a moth attracted to the light. I became a counselor and remained active for twenty-five years. I was drawn by that profession and did not realize why until several years before I moved on to another endeavor. I was made for that. By the way, I love people, I'm incomplete without being a part of the whole, so to speak. But I also need to be alone to renew myself. Good luck on your search.
