I’m Really, Really, Boring

Posted on Updated on

I’ve got a couple of reviews due. And I want to publish them all on the same day, so, a massive read fest going on here. Having a furtive zoom around the internet, I indulged myself, and not only opened this cool post, but clicked the link and typed in my blog URL, and here’s what popped up:

ISFP – The Artists

The author of https://africolonialstories.wordpress.com is of the type ISFP.

The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people feel. They usually have a strong appreciation for art and beauty or things around them that affect the look, taste, sound or smell.

They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders. They tend to follow the path of least resistance and have to look out not to be taken advantage of.

They tend to value their friends and family above what they do for a living. They genuinely care about people.

They are extremely gifted at creating and composing things that stimulates the senses, such as art, music or food. They often prefer working quietly, behind the scene as a part of a team. They have no desire to lead others and they don’t want to be led. ISFPs are sometimes not good at giving him/herself enough credit for things they did well.

Common satisfying careers: Fashion Designer, Artists, Interior Designer, Landscape Architect, Nurse, Massage Therapist, Botanist, Teacher, Geologist, Translator, Social Worker, Occupational Therapist, Cosmetologist and Translator.

Notable ISFPs: Ulysses S. Grant, Sofia Coppola, David Lynch, Brad Pitt, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, David Beckham, John Travolta, Liv Tylor, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Nero and Wicket the Ewok.

Well… REALLY? Bloody NERO? Who’s Wicket the Ewok – hmmm? I thought it was just Ewok. Have a go… why don’t you? Back to reading…..

    I love the title of the post, because, in the main, only people who are not boring can describe themselves as being so. Those who really are seldom have the awareness to realise it. I suspect you are not boring

      Hey there Peter! True. Could be us scribblers are a bit odder than most, and people run away because they’re afraid – not bored. 😉
