I am INFJ-T. Now What?

A friend encouraged me to take the 16 Personalities test recently. But this isn’t one of those trivial, joke personality quizzes you find doing the rounds on Facebook. It is formally called the “NERIS Type Explorer” test. The theory behind it is based on the research carried out by Carl Jung.

The test took about ten minutes to complete; there were a significant number of questions. Always reassuring to have one’s personality broken down and pulled apart so thoroughly. If you’re going to have something done, have it done right!

It runs like clockwork. Without fail, between 7:20 and 7:25 each morning, we hear the noise of a rattling door knob. A door will open, and the quiet padding of little feet draws closer to our bedroom as our two-year-old creeps stealthily down the hallway...

Latest entry on #MusingsOfATechie

I’ve managed to post daily for five days straight now and it seems to be developing into a habit. I may just have to set myself a proper goal soon. Can I keep it going for ten days? a month? Best not to get ahead of myself. If I overthink it there’s a risk I’ll just crumple up and abandon it altogether. Moving on…
