Hello my ogbonge people! Welcome to today’s episode of the only blog that gives you the best vibes.
Growing up, I always wanted to know more about myself. I always tended to be in my head most of the times and I’ll let you in on a secret; I had an imaginary friend, (I’ll continue like I didn’t hear you say in your head “imaginary friend ke? Abi na evil spirit). I named him Chinkobell, wait you can’t judge me for naming him that! I was only but a child!
If you’ve not connected the dots as to why I am telling you this, It’s simply because from a young age I knew that I was special, not the kind of special you convince yourself that you are (well we are all special) but the “balance of the world” kind of special. So like every other superhero story, I came to discover what made me super… No, it’s not Indomine super-pack (which I abused in my Uni days) but my personality!
I got to know about the MBTI personality classification by Myers Briggs all thanks to Mume Efe who opened my eyes to the wonders of MBTI
Before I proceed, please NOTE! This is not based on superstition or star gazing or anything of that sort. So, it’s definitely safe for everyone regardless of your faith.
I’m assuming we all know that there are introverts and extroverts. Well, let’s take it a step further. There is something called the four temperament theory. It is a proto-psychological theory which suggests that there are four fundamental personality types: sanguine, choleric, melancholic, and phlegmatic which is linked to the four elements air, water, earth and fire (I’m beginning to think Avatar is real)
Taking it a bit further than the step further I spoke of earlier, there is something called the MBTI personality types. This for me is much more detailed than the four temperament theory (read on and be blessed, exit it and face 4 days of bad luck. By the way, if you have sent out BC’s like this, they said I should tell you that you no longer have a mansion in Heaven and that you would crash in refugee camp)
The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire which indicates differences in psychological preferences on how people perceive the world and make decisions.
The MBTI was originally constructed by two Americans, a mother and daughter named Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers. I read somewhere that The MBTI is based on a theory proposed by a psychiatrist Carl Jung, who had speculated that people experience the world using four principal psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking – and that one of these four functions is dominant for a person most of the time.
There are 16 different personality types according to the MBTI and each type has a four letter code. Below are what each letter of the code means:
“How did you know where you fit in?”
The ultimate question you may ask. You have to take the test, dear. It’s not magic or acting play. The tricky thing is, if you don’t answer the questions accurately, you might not get the real result, just in case you are one of those people that cut covenant with the devil that they would always lie, but If you are a child of light and by mistake you didn’t answer accurately, and the results you get doesn’t match your personality, don’t be afraid to take it again (I’ll suggest on a different day, when you’re more relaxed and you have confessed that sin that is making your heart to pound).
From the test, I came out INFJ the rarest of all (when I said I am special you thought I was joking? Jokes on you now).
The Nigerian in me is telling me that the Nigerian in you is asking “but how has it changed your life though”. It actually has in many different ways. It has helped me know my weakness and try to improve on them, as well as my strengths too. This actually is the aim, to inspire you to explore and understand your own personality including your likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, possible career preferences, and compatibility with other people.
This shouldn’t be another excuse for bad behavior please. Set awon “my personality type is known for being shitty, so accept me like that”. No we wouldn’t accept you like that, work on your faults Karen or vibrate out like an ‘I better pass my neighbor’ generator.
You can take the test here.
