Once an ENFJ, Always an ENFJ

Well, I'm on the bandwagon. Thanks to "Like I Was Saying" and the rest of the MIA posse, I couldn't resist taking the test one more time. I'm still an ENFJ. But as I mentioned to a couple other bloggers in their comments, I like to think that I'm a kinder, gentler version of myself. I always tell The Boss that more of him has rubbed off on me than me that has rubbed off on him. Which frustrates the snot out of me - I wish some of my obsessive compulsion "that everything has a place and the world is so much more FUN when it's all in its place," would rub off on him. Now THAT's fun. Yeah!

When I read this site's list of famous "real" ENFJ's, I couldn't help but laugh out loud, then gasp and feel intimidated, insulted, and amused. These names crack me up - I don't think I'm like many of them, but it's quite a round up. See for yourself:

Abraham Maslow - psychologist
Andy Griffith - actor
Ben Affleck - actor
Ben Stiller - actor, comedian
Bob Saget - actor
Brenda Vaccaro - actress
Craig T. Nelson - actor (Coach)
Dennis Hopper - actor
Diane Sawyer - television journalist
Dick Van Dyke - actor
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - minister, civil rights activist
Elizabeth Dole - senator
Francois Mitterand - French President
James Garner - actor
John Wooden - basketball player, coach
Johnny Depp - actor
King David - King of Israel
Kirstie Alley - actress
Lauren Graham - actress
Margaret Mead - cultural anthropologist
Matthew McConaughey - actor
Mikhail Gorbachev - last leader of Soviet Union
Pete Sampras - tennis champion
Peyton Manning - NFL quarterback
Ralph Nader - attorney, political activist
Randy Quaid - actor
Ross Perot - businessman
Tommy Lee Jones - actor
William Aramony - United Way president
William Cullen Bryant - poet
Okay. Kirstie Alley I can see. She's obnoxiously like-able, like everyone's friend from high school that got you into trouble. But I don't know that I'm really like that. Am I? Well, okay. Maybe I am. A little bit. Not so much that I actually get into trouble. But I do enjoy my naughty little rebellious thoughts and suggestions to fellow wanna-be rebels once in a while. Shhhhh, don't tell my mom.

And Johnny Depp and Matthew McConaughey? I like them, but am I like them? Enough. Enough! Enough already.

But Popeye? Now I know I am like him: "I Yam What I Yam."

I think this is hillarious. I think Martha Stewart should be on that list. She reminds me of you how everything has a spot and everything is labeled.

I think you are a lot of fun to be around but I see how you would want to be a rebel too.

We should be rebels together, sometimes doing what is not right is fun.

I HAVE to be skeptical and wonder how on earth they figure out what celebrity is what...

Maybe that is part of my personality;)

Ralph Nader and Ross Perot? Maybe you should try running for president. LOL!

Ross Perot? Now that cracked me up!

I knew our tests results would be similar! I think you are just a tad more OCD than me, but not much. In fact , I aspire to reach your level of OCD-ness, but that would probably require the acquisition of another child to force me into a new level of organization!

btw, I think you are positively charming and fun to be around! And, did I mention sassy? You are positively sassy!

I have to disagree with one of the famous people listed. I catagorized King David as an introvert. He was most creative when he was by himself as a shepherd. When he mourned a great loss, he went off by himself.
As to heidi's question as to how you can guess celebrities, it is just a guess based on certain behaviors of the individual. As a certified MBTI trainer and an author (The Type of Marriage that Endures), I know that they only person who can realistically determine their peronality type is self.
