A Writer’s Personality

20 Jul

So I found this nifty thing on Pinterest the other day. Everyone know the Myers-Briggs Personality Test? This describes what kind of writer you are based on your results of that test.

A few years ago when I had taken the test, my result was ENTJ, the Commander archetype — “bold, imaginative and strong-willed leaders.” I was always perfectly fine with that, figuring it suited me for the most part. Upon reading this little chart, I agreed with the Extrovert and Intuit section, but the other two sections made me pause.

While I do enjoy a good mystery or sci-fi story once in a while like a Thinker, my stories definitely drift toward focusing more on character rather than plot. And I’m sure everyone here knows how much of a pantser I am! I’m definitely not a plotter like the other Judgers!

So I retook the test, and what do you know? I got ENFP, with a healthy dose of assertiveness. An ENFP is called a Campaigner, basically an enthusiastic and independent free spirit with a good deal of leadership qualities.

What about all of you? Does this chart match your Myers-Briggs personality type?

    Neat! I am INFJ, and those descriptions match me to a T! I plan things out a lot when writing, and I also like starting with the big picture and adding details. I’m most interested in characters in stories, though I also like mysteries but that’s another thing. And the introverts’ description describes me perfectly too! Very interesting!

    I’m ISTJ: the Thinker and Judger parts definitely fit me, but I’m not certain about the other two.
