The Friday 56: Please Understand Me


Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!


Wow, I almost forgot today! This week's selection comes from Please Understand Me: Character and Temperament Types by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates. If you've never taken this test, go out and get the book. It's so much much to find out what type you are and what is says about you. I've found it to be amazingly accurate on most points (if you're absolutely honest when answering the questions). I am an INFJ. To know what that means, go get the book.


This is under the section about the Promethean Temperament, or the NTs.

This distancing sometimes causes the NT to make personal commitments which he later regrets. In particular the NT whose "feeling" is not developedcan become involved with members of the opposite sex who might be totally unsuitable as life companions.

Sounds interesting! There are plenty of NTs out there or do we change types as we grow older?

Here's mine.

NTs only make up about 12% of the population, according to the book (same as my group, the NFs) but it is possible to change as we get older. I took this test first about 6+ years ago. I took it again two days ago and found that while some of my answers changed I was still a firm INFJ, so it's not all that common.

More and more I love self help books. As a teenager, I hated these books. Now, I am terribly excited about Psychology and such especially character types. I would love to read this book. I am curious about that abbreviation.
