I think the only person who'll read this entire thing is Janna, but I'll post it anyway for future reference ;)
The quiz is here.

 Understanding

You are willing to take the time to find out what's going on with other people, especially if they're in distress. You're a good listener, you don't criticize, and you offer unbiased, respectful, honest advice when it's requested. With a high score on the "understanding" trait, it is likely that you are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.
You don't feel the need to impose your standards on others or say things that, even though true, cause pain.

Passionate

You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you react before you think. The good news: you don't tamp down your feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later wish you could take back.
You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.

Empathetic

You are in touch with your own feelings, which helps put you in touch with the feelings of others.
You don't buy the logic that your happiness comes ahead of everyone else's because unless you're happy you're incapable of making anyone else happy.

Aesthetic

You appreciate art, beauty, and design; you know that they are not superficial but absolutely crucial to living the good life. You have good taste, and you're proud of it. Those with a high score on the "aesthetic" trait are often employed in literary or artistic professions, enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about the arts, reading, and travel.
You don't think it's pretentious to be moved by art and beauty. You're not one of those who believe it doesn't matter what something looks like as long as it does its job.

Accessible

You're comfortable expressing yourself in words and actions, with no self-censorship. You believe that if someone doesn't like what they see it's not your problem, but theirs. A high score on the "accessible" trait suggests that you have a lot of friends, socialize often, and enjoy rap/hip-hop music.
You don't see the need to keep your thoughts to yourself, or to have a zone of privacy that encompasses only yourself and a small circle of friends and relatives.

Warm

You have a genuine interest in other people. You're a natural host, and are always thinking about how you can increase the happiness of those around you. When friends have problems or are in trouble, you're usually the first person they turn to for aid and comfort. Scoring high on the "warm" trait suggests that you are among those who enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.
You don't always say exactly what you're thinking; you don't like the idea of causing anyone pain because of your criticism.

Tender

You are gentle with others, both physically and emotionally. You are careful not to upset people and go out of your way to find the nicest way to say something. You naturally focus on the fact that the world is full of wonderful people, places, and things. More often than not, people with a high score on the "tender" trait enjoy spending time with children, love romantic movies, and are enthusiastic about making the world a better place.
You don't think of yourself as tough-minded or gruff, nor do you need to be seen as some kind of objective source of truth and rationality.

Outspoken

You like to talk. Luckily, you always have something to say, you tell a good story, and people generally enjoy listening to you. It's no wonder that you're often the center of attention.
You don't tend to keep your thoughts to yourself, and you don't feel you're imposing on others when you share your thoughts and opinions with them.

Emotional

You let it all hang out, and those around you always know what you're going through.
You are not isolated from your emotions; no one would call you "cold-blooded," or even "cool as a cucumber."

Intellectual

You are thoughtful, rational, and comfortable in the world of ideas. People find you interesting to talk to. You're the living embodiment of the saying "You learn something new every day." In general, those with a high score on the "intellectual" trait are employed in such fields as teaching and research, and are enthusiastic about reading, foreign films, and classical music.
You do not avoid abstract conversation, experimenting with new ideas, or studying new things. It bores you to stick to the straight and narrow of what you already know.

Apart from the random comments about rap and hip hop (I mean, really? what does that have to do with anything?) and a couple of vaguely contradictory points I think this sums me up pretty well.


I had a really good day today - despite the utterly miserable weather. Rained all afternoon and was so cold.
I had another Alexander lesson this morning, and it's awesome that she is in a band with my regular teacher - apparently Andrea told her she was impressed with me last lesson. ALSO she was so encouraging, saying things like 'you are a fantastic player, you just need to stop thinking so much and restricting yourself' - completely matter-of-fact. I've really needed to hear that this past week. I could feel myself playing better as the lesson progressed, and was enjoying myself a LOT more. These lessons are the best decision I've made in a long time.

This afternoon I saw harpisan for the first time in ages, and it was awesome just to hang out. Wandering up and down this cool little street near her place, drank chai lattes (my new addiction) and then admired all kinds of clothes/shoes/random things in awesome shops. Oh and this awesome little indie music store that apparently sells pizza and has gigs etc. Must check those out sometime. I bought Eagle and Worm's album - going to their gig in a couple of weeks so I am excited!

Quick post tonight, I should get back to work but chances are I'm just going to procrastinate some more and then sleep.

Well of course I read the entire thing - personality quizzes FTW!! :B hahaha

I think it's very accurate - except for the rap/hip hop, lolwtf? What does THAT have to do with anything? XD It matches up perfectly with the ENFJ description, it just breaks it down a little better without all the functions and things.(In my mind I'm grouping all those categories into E, N, F, or, J, LOL). I must take this quiz! :D

CHAI LATTES OM NOM NOM. Glad those lessons are going well for you! Not sure what you mean by Alexander lesson...a person? A technique? What is it? o_0 Whatever it is, glad it's working. ^^

:D

Hehe oh I never doubted you would :P

MTE ... just, relevance? None. XD
HAHAHA OF COURSE YOU ARE!
Do it! It's actually not that long for something that turns out pretty close :P

SO GOOD
It's a technique. Wiki it :D
It's king of awesome but weird thought-muscle linking stuff. Hard to comprehend but it does work for me.

I am stealing that personality quiz to use on my journal. I wonder if mine matches up with my personality type (INFJ). ;)

I think that you have some really nice traits to your personality but like Janna said they do fit in with your ENFJ side quite well. :P

Tut tut procrastination! :P You naughty little egg!

Ahahaha so we are the same apart from the introvert/extrovert thing. Which is a fairly big difference. ALL MY FRIENDS ARE INTROVERTS AAHHH XD

LOL heyyyy there personality twin! XD to use Janna's terminology, I am also an ENFJ. :D

Alexander Technique!!! I've never taken lessons, only read about it, but I have confidence in its effectiveness from everything I've heard. In fact I've had voice teachers recommend it to me, but it's so expensive.

Heh. Us being personality twins certainly explains why I got along with Janna so well instantly ;)

It's so good omg. But yeah, it's as expensive as my violin lessons themselves... I'm just lucky that at this point I can afford it.
