    Looking at that chart, I think an ESFP for myself is right. But the description on the Myers Briggs site almost doesn’t sound like me. Some of it does, but quite a bit doesn’t. Though I suppose it would change a lot how I interact with other people around me because I’m a Christian, so that could explain the differences.

    • That is awesome, Olivia!
      You have every strength where I am lacking (a little bit). 😉
      I do admire those of you who are born with the boldness of being an extrovert.
      And the other combinations show you to be a caring and feeling person.
      I hope you employ those powers of feeling and perception and integrate them into your works. The insights of loving and caring people are badly needed in this fallen world. I pray a special blessing on you. May the Lord expand your reach, and put His Divine wind in your sails.

      • Haha, well God did make people to be different so we’d balance each other out. I can’t imagine a world with only people like myself. xP Wouldn’t really work out well…
        Thanks, though I of course didn’t do anything to become an extrovert. But I highly admire introverts as much as I do extroverts. In my opinion, introverts have just as many great characteristics as extroverts do. 🙂
        Ya, I guess that’s me. Though I’m not always as thoughtful of other people’s feelings as I should be. xP
        Aww, thank you! It’s so true that each of us has a different personality and can therefore add a different perspective to our writing.
        I forget now (sorry xD) what did you say your personality type is?

      • I am an INTJ or an INTP with the pretensions to be an INFP.

      • Oh, gotcha. That’s complicated! How did you figure that out?

      • I just took the online test and that’s what it told me, based on my preferences. I just remember being a Melancholic-Phlegmatic-Choleric from back in the day. The Myers-Briggs was a new one I had not tried before. I’m a work-in-progress. 😉

      • Okay, that’s cool! Mine didn’t say that, but it’s cool that yours did.

        Haha, aren’t we all…
