What taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indication states about you

Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indication? You understand, the most popular character test on the planet? I have actually taken it frequently, beginning in high school as part of a “future profession” workshop, and after that lot of times considering that– on my own or at the demand of a company. My ratings constantly show that I’m an “INFP”– so I have actually jokingly cautioned individuals for years about my “INFP-ness”. Cringe, I understand. Ends up the test is quite cringe, too, as we have actually covered here in the past.
