"Talk about your personality type and how it impacts your work."

Day 2 of the professional blog a day challenge poses this question.  So I took one of those personality tests and here is my result:

"ISFJs live in a world that is concrete and kind. They are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people. They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people's feelings. People value the ISFJ for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others by their firm desire to believe the best."

I think this is sort of counter-productive in the business world.  I ALWAYS want to believe the best of people.  Unfortunately there are sketchy people who will try to pull one over and I nearly always take the short end in those situations.  

"ISFJs learn best by doing, rather than by reading about something in a book, or applying theory. For this reason, they are not likely to be found in fields which require a lot of conceptual analysis or theory. They value practical application. Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ. The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application. Once the task is learned, and its practical importance is understood, the ISFJ will faithfully and tirelessly carry through the task to completion. The ISFJ is extremely dependable."

Yes, this is very true.  Analysis is NOT my thing.  Thankfully it IS my husband's thing so he handles all of the stats and stuff that I don't have the patience for.  

I won't bore you with the full analysis (it's REALLY long) but you can find out your own personality information here.
