I just did a personality test from http://www.kisa.ca/personality/
My test results:
Your personality type is ISFP.
Introverted (I) 79%
Extraverted (E) 21%
Sensing (S) 59%
Intuitive (N) 41%
Feeling (F) 85%
Thinking (T) 15%
Perceiving (P) 59%
Judging (J) 41%
What this means is:
ISFPs generally have the following traits:
Keen awareness of their environment
Live in the present moment
Enjoy a slower pace - they like to take time to savor the present moment
Dislike dealing with theory or abstract thought, unless they see a practical application
Faithful and loyal to people and ideas which are important to them
Individualistic, having no desire to lead or follow
Take things seriously, although they frequently appear not to
Special bond with children and animals
Quiet and reserved, except with people they know extremely well
Trusting, sensitive, and kind
Service-oriented; they're driven to help others
Extremely well-developed appreciation for aesthetic beauty
Likely to be original and unconventional
Learn best with hands-on training
Hate being confined to strict schedules and regimens
Need space and freedom to do things their own way
Dislike mundane, routine tasks, but will perform them if necessary
The ISFP is a very special individual who needs to have a career which is more than a job. The middle of the road is not likely to be a place where they will be fulfilled and happy. They need to have a career which is consistent with their strong core of inner values. Since they prefer to live in the current moment, and take the time to savor it, they do not do well with some of the more fast-paced corporate environments. They need a great deal of space and freedom if they are going to function in their natural realm of acute sensory awareness. If they give free reign to their natural abilities, they may find a wonderful artist within themselves. Almost every major artist in the world has been an ISFP. Since the ISFP is so acutely aware of people's feelings and reactions, and is driven by their inner values to help people, the ISFP is also a natural counselor and teacher.
The following list of professions is built on our impressions of careers which would be especially suitable for an ISFP. It is meant to be a starting place, rather than an exhaustive list. There are no guarantees that any or all of the careers listed here would be appropriate for you, or that your best career match is among those listed.
Possible Career Paths for the ISFP:
Musician / Composer
Child Care / Early Childhood Development
Social Worker / Counselor
Now bear in mind that I went to Uni and trained to be a teacher (decided against it due to many reasons at the time) but went into caring for the elderly whilst doing my psychology degree ( where I did many of these tests and studied them!). Then I moved to my current job of working with disabled children and I am doing my social work degree!!
Wierd isn't it!!
