Just kidding, I’ll probably be off chasing the next story by the time you read this – that’s how us INFJs tend to be. But seriously folks, take the test and come back and leave comments, because it’s fun to compare results of the 28-question test, which is the most used personality test in the world today and based on the work of Carl Jung and the Myers-Briggs typology. Many corporations and Fortune 500 companies also use this instrument to help people discover their dominant personality traits and tendencies.
What’s even more interesting beyond finding out whether you’re a people-loving ENFJ type, or a born leader like the ENTJ type, is the way the CelebrityTypes.com website allows you to see how your results line up with those of famous folks.
That’s how this Cleveland Pop Culture Examiner learned that Cate Blanchett and I are both gentle and caring confidants – (check!) – intuitive kinds of people that enjoy being in the 1% of the population with this rarest of personality types. Of course, the truth is we’re all “fearfully and wonderfully made,” plus I’ve found Blanchett’s roles amazingly fascinating ever since 1998’s Elizabeth. Remember her character’s chilling Turkish delight “sweeties” bribery in The Chronicles of Narnia? And who else could pull off that tent-like dress featured in the above pic besides the beautiful and ethereal Oscar-winning actress?
Celebrities marvel over their spot-on celebrity “type” casting
Famous people are finding themselves on the personality pegging website and are amazed at its accuracy.
“I am type E-N-F-P on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. How did they know?” wrote the late film critic Roger Ebert.
“Funny: I came out ENFP then found myself listed as a ‘famous ENFP’ anyway,” noted The Satanic Verses celebrity author Salman Rushdie when he visited the website and apparently took the test. He joined Ebert in tweet-referencing wonderment about how the website creators could peg his results so accurately.
Once you’ve discovered your personality type, it’s pretty interesting to take a trip down an INFJ hashtag search lane (or whatever you are) to see the quotes and quips that arise.
