Your environment can shape you

Much has changed in the last few months.  My first long term relationship has ended, and reflecting on it, I’ve learned many lessons.  Choosing a partner may possibly be the most influential life decision.  Two people’s lives come together, and where your personality starts and ends becomes blurred.  I typically take the Myers’ brigg test a few times a year, and this has given me some objective data to look at my own personality.
Myers’ brigg test, taken today.
Extravert(44%)  iNtuitive(62%)  Thinking(12%)  Judging(56%)
  • You have moderate preference of Extraversion over Introversion (44%)
  • You have distinctive preference of Intuition over Sensing (62%)
  • You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (56%)


Compared to about a year ago, whist in a relationship with a ENTP.  At this time I was quite sick, and also very stressed out from school:

Introvert(10%)  iNtuitive(80%)  Thinking(20%)  Judging(46%)

Compared to the personality test results taken from a previous blog post on September 22nd, 2009.  At this time I was also single, just starting 2nd year:

I believe that sick, and around extroverts all the time pushed me really pushed me towards an introversion.  Health and who you surround yourself can really change who you are.  Pick your friends carefully and make wise life choices.
