I've taken the Myers-Briggs test five times in the last 13 years. And every time I've received the same results: ENTP. Decoded:
E = I like to be around people / I think about what I'm going to say after it's left my mouth.
N = Details bug me. And also? Don't boss me.
T = F*ck emotions.
P = Vanilla or chocolate?...Hmmm...Ooh! I've been wanting vanilla... But chocolate looks so good!... Okay, vanilla....Damn! I should have gotten the chocolate. That looks way better...
Over the years I've moved closer to the middle on the E and the P, and still, the big decisions are tough for me. (That's the P talking.) At work I'm able to make application or process decisions with swift aplomb. I could win contests on my ability to shop quickly. (If only there were such contests.) But ask me where I see myself in five years and I'll stare at you blankly. I guess it's not so much that I can't decide as much as I can't articulate it. How do you say, "I want to effect change, lead a big team, and do cool stuff" without sounding like you're high and would you please pass the Doritos, man?
Where in this world should I go on vacation?
