INFJ personality The INFJ personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As Diplomats (NF), they have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is the accompanying Judging (J) trait – INFJs are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact. INFJs tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all. Help Me Help You INFJs indeed share a very unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. Live to Fight Another Day
16 Personality Factors The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (or 16PF), is a multiple-choice personality questionnaire which was developed over several decades of research by Raymond B. Cattell, Maurice Tatsuoka and Herbert Eber. Beginning in the 1940s, Cattell used the new techniques of factor analysis (based on the correlation coefficient) in an attempt to try to discover and measure the source traits of human personality (Cattell, 1946)(Nevid, 2009). The questionnaire measures the 16 primary traits, and the Big Five secondary traits, which have become popularized by other authors in recent years. From early in his research, Cattell found that the structure of personality was multi-level and hierarchical, with a structure of interdependent primary and secondary level traits (Cattell, 1946, 1957). The sixteen primary factors were a result of factor-analyzing hundreds of measures of everyday behaviors to find the fundamental traits behind them. Outline of Test
Introverts in the Church » Life Builders Inc. Dear Christian Introverts, A lot of our churches are run to accommodate an extroverted audience, especially in the Pentecostal sector. While there is nothing wrong with demonstrating ones faith and belief in an external way, perhaps the apparent leaning towards the extroverted service could have some unhelpful side effects. Because society is predominately biased towards extroversion, we can find ourselves subconsciously trying to fit into the extroverted framework, resulting in us denying or ignoring very legitimate parts of how we have been created. Taken a step further, we can even look around during the service, and see most people with their hands in the air, moving around (even going up the front to worship), and think there is something wrong with our faith or belief in God. Perhaps a statement like “Maybe I need to be as animated as them before I can consider myself a ‘real’ Christian”, or something like it is not too far from our minds and lips at times.
Are You an Introverted Boss? - Douglas R. Conant by Douglas R. Conant | 10:19 AM April 4, 2011 Every time I’ve taken a Meyers-Briggs test, I score high on the introversion scale. As an introvert, I enjoy being by myself. So how do I manage this? Introverts need thinking time. Introverts aren’t as aloof as they appear. One of the best ways I’ve found to help people overcome their discomfort around my behavior is to simply declare myself. I’ve also found that doing this helps people become much more comfortable about declaring themselves to me. Introverts benefit from familiar touchstones. In the end, we introverts never really change our stripes, though we too often put ourselves through painful contortions in attempting to adapt to other people’s styles. If you are an introvert — or work for one — what are the most successful strategies you have discovered? Douglas R.
Innovation in Japan – Perception vs. Reality The BBC recently published an article claiming that Japan’s culture is “anti-innovation” and that “zero appetite for risk and eroded confidence [means Japan is] one of the toughest environments on Earth to root new ideas.” For a country that is renowned around the world for new ideas and innovation (everything from personal audio devices, video games, flash memory and even the world’s first novel – “The Tale of Genji,”) many may find these claims strange. But opinions like these about Japan’s culture are real and stem from an issue that falls flatly into Edelman’s realm – a massive perception gap about Japan and its companies right now. For those of us who have lived and worked in Japan for years, and have been exposed to the innards of Japanese companies in our lines of work, frustrations about a lack of appetite for risk and being short on confidence will be familiar.

It is a common misconception that we are emotionless and reserved, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Introverts love just as deeply as everyone else.

23 Signs You're Secretly An Introvert Think you can spot an introvert in a crowd? Think again. Although the stereotypical introvert may be the one at the party who’s hanging out alone by the food table fiddling with an iPhone, the “social butterfly” can just as easily have an introverted personality. “Spotting the introvert can be harder than finding Waldo,” Sophia Dembling, author of “The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World,” tells The Huffington Post. “A lot of introverts can pass as extroverts.” People are frequently unaware that they’re introverts -– especially if they’re not shy — because they may not realize that being an introvert is about more than just cultivating time alone. “Introversion is a basic temperament, so the social aspect — which is what people focus on — is really a small part of being an introvert,” Dr. Despite the growing conversation around introversion, it remains a frequently misunderstood personality trait. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.
