Once Upon a Time I was an Extrovert…I probably still am.
Anyone familiar with tests like the Birkman or Myers-Briggs? If you aren’t, basically they ask a series of questions about you and then identify your personality traits by using letters to categorize you. I’m a ESFJ – show me some love. This means, I am technically an Extrovert (not Introvert), who is Sensing (instead of iNtution), a Feeler (not a Thinker), and a Judging (not Perceiving). I have loved tests most of my life, I’ve been blessed enough to just be a good test-taker. As a teacher, I have seen the kind of anxiety they can cause for others – but seriously, tests are totally my jam. I’m a weirdo. These personality inventories are my favorite! I love to see how I am, how others are, how we intermingle together and how we should get along. To me, it is a tangible example of how God made each of us individually and uniquely for a specific purpose. Read, Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
