INTJ-A = part of the 2%. I knew that of course because I’ve taken the famous Briggs-Meyers personality test more than once and it ALWAYS comes out the same. INTJ-A. It’s flattering (in some ways) to have a rare personality type but I sometimes question whether it might not be a BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder).
If you’ve ever wondered what makes good old Steve tick the test results will answer all of your unasked questions. Amongst them why I succeed in professional and creative pursuits and crash & burn in relationships. Why I’m a pie-in-the-sky idealist and at the very same time the consummate pragmatist.
My personality type has plagued me my entire life and has brought a certain amount of misery into my life. It’s easy for me to slip into arrogance (thinking everyone else is stupid) and quick judgements. I rarely trust anyone else when it comes to decisions and I am supremely confident in my own decision making prowess (I’m basically a pain in the ass). Ugh! Come to find out I worked 30 years at a job I was ill-suited to (and hated). But the money was good and I “thought” I could make a difference.
