The solution is in the clutter

I know some of you will think what the hell? No, it's nothing bad or devious as I am purported to be. Just something about me that makes me unique from a lot of other people. The fact is that what most people see as normal, I see mathematical formulas. It's just the way my brain works. This is where I get my sense of intuition. If something doesn't compute, it shows as an error in my mind and I start calculating possible solutions. Oh yeah, your saying, yup, he's gone nuts. I jest you not.
I attribute this to the reason I am an introvert. So lets explore some of the advantages of my condition if you want to call it that.

10) Work Well With Others, Especially In One-to-One Relationships

9) Maintain Long-Term Friendships

8) Flexible

7) Independent

6) Strong Ability To Concentrate

5) Self-Reflective

4) Responsible

3) Creative, Out-of-the-Box thinking

2) Analytical Skills That Integrate Complexity

1) Studious and Smart

I had recently took a test (Myers-Briggs) to determine my personality type and these were the results:

You seek meaning and connection in ideas, relationships, and material possessions. You want to understand what motivates people and are insightful about others. You are conscientious and committed to your firm values. You develop a clear vision about how best to serve the common good. You are organized and decisive in implementing your vision.

So I hope this explains a little bit more about why I am who I am.

Here are some other traits I poses:

Enjoy time alone
Consider only deep relationships as friends
Feel drained after outside activities, even if they were fun
Good listener
Appear calm and self-contained
Think then speak or act

Hmmm.... math equations.... So am I more of a + sign or a * ? No big surprise that I'm on the Introvert team as well!

I was wondering why we think so much alike. The math is a mental image thing because I suck at math.

I think I got the same one you did: ISFJ, although when I did one from another site, I got INFJ, which I think more accurately describes me.

I'm an INTJ, with a little INTP thrown in. I can be non-commital about certain things and can change my plans if it means getting something done faster and checked off my list. I prefer the Keirsey label of Mastermind, though. (Makes me sound a tad evil and if I had a mustache, I'd be twirling it right about now.)

I'm ESFJ - so they say. LOL

This I know all to well, but I like sinister mastermind in a woman. Keeps me on my toes. "What is she thinking?" Sometimes, that feeling part gets in my way. Got to do something about that.

You are more outgoing where I am more reserved. Still love ya though. Peoples character traits is what shape them and how they think and act. At least that what my Sociology friends tell me.

Shiny Rod said...

Yup, INFJ. Us intros must stick together
