No, I refuse to be a Team Player!

Upon discovering my Personality Type as INFP, it explains my resistance and dislikes working in a “team” environment at a place of employment.  Although I enjoy working with people, my preference is working by myself.

Succeeding in having your resume read these days is a true triumph, but receiving an invite for an interview is bliss!

It’s exhilarating (perhaps I’m a bit dramatic) to discover that there are 16 Personality Types and one type that illustrates your traits. My scores, after undertaking two different tests, both conclude that I’m an INFP Type Personality, with their qualities so ‘dead on’ to my own.  It’s almost spooky!

With various personality traits, I often considered myself as an oddball; unique from others who rarely mull over or sense things the way I do, or perceive the world and people.

I’ve been in therapy for some years (PTSD) and have discussed the way I operate day to day, and now there is a name for it!

I write better than I talk.

A few of my odd ways:
