An acronym I don't fully Understand

You Are An ISFJ

The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.

A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.

In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.

You find it easy to be devoted to one person, who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.

Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.

You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut


  1. I am too. I took the quiz. But I don't get the acronym at all.

  2. Me TOO, Heather and Lauriel! And it really *is* me.


  3. Apparently, I'm a protector.

  4. I am also an ISFJ ( idea on the acronym.)

  5. Briggs-Myer! ISFJ = introvert, sensing, feeling, judging, which means you re-energize with alone time (vs. re-energize in a big crowd), you make decisions based on data/facts (vs. gut), you perceive the world emotionally rather than analytically/cognitively, and you have a strong need to finish/plan things in advance vs. wait for the last minute or be totally spontaneous.

    That said, you can be anywhere along the continuum of each of these. I'm an ISTJ!

  6. How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive

    When other people don't get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud

    Do you think that applies to me?

  7. I never knew either. Apparently Shawn, and other corporate workers, use it to help make life in the workplace more cohesive. He came home for the office with his 4 letters and acted shocked that I didn't have mine. I took the test on facebook and have my letters up there...ESFJ is me - apparently. Whatever...I still don't exactly get what it means. -S

  8. It is always interesting to see what these tests pull out. For myers I am an ENFJ. It changes over time too which is neat to see.
