The Keirsey Temperament Sorter is a test that best describes a person’s personality. It consists of seventy questions that try to find out what kind of person you are. It tries to best identify where you like to focus your attention, how you prefer to take in information, how you like to make decisions, and the lifestyle that you prefer. This is a system that is supposed to accurately identify someone’s personality.
I was really anxious to do this test and I tried to answer every question as accurately as I could. After reviewing my score, I found out that I was an ISFP. Well, what exactly is an ISFP? It stands for Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, and Perceiving. Introvert is a person that prefers to focus on the inner world of thoughts, feelings, or impressions. I agree with this because I rely on feelings and impressions of others. I am able to sometimes see how others feel inside even if they don’t show it on the outside.
The Sensing part I strongly disagreed with. It says that Sensing is a type of person that likes to focus on the present reality and on the information brought by their senses. On the other hand, the N (iNtuitions), which is the opposite of the S, says that it is a type of person that focuses on possibilities and relationships and looks forward to the future. I think that I am more N then S.
The next part says that I am more of feeling than thinking and means that I base my judgements on personal values and tend to be more person oriented. I agree with the part that says that I base my judgements on personal values but not on the part about being people oriented. I always get into fights with friends over my decisions or judgements because I base them on my values that often seem to be very different than others’. Finally, the P or perceiving, talks about how I like an adaptable, flexible, and a spontaneous approach to life and that I like to stay open to new experiences. I agree with this the most because it’s the best one that most accurately describes me.
Overall, I think that I am an INFP and not an ISFP. I still believe that the N describes me more than the S. I found this test to be more accurate than any other tests that I have taken. This test surprised me with the accuracy and I also liked taking it.
