This Personality Test Can Help With A Piece of the Puzzle
This evening for one of my classes, we had to take a personality test called The Jung Typology Test. As a person with Borderline Personality Disorder who has had difficulty at times pinpointing my own sense of individuality and identity (though this has improved substantially three years into Dialectical Behavior Therapy), I was very intrigued to find out my results, which were highly accurate. I wonder how many of you will have the same or similar result as me.
My personality type, based on this test, is ESJF, which stands for “Extroverted Sensing Feeling Judging.”
Here’s how I scored:
Extrovert(33%) Sensing(50%) Feeling(75%) Judging(11%)
- You have moderate preference of Extroversion over Introversion (33%)
- You have moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition (50%)
- You have distinctive preference of Feeling over Thinking (75%)
- You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)
A more detailed report accurately described me, as an ESJF, as:
“ESFJs are easily wounded. And when wounded, their emotions will not be contained. They by nature ‘wear their hearts on their sleeves,’ often exuding warmth and bonhomie, but not infrequently boiling over with the vexation of their souls. Some ESFJs channel these vibrant emotions into moving dramatic performances on stage and screen.” (ESFJ detailed report.)
I can definitely relate to this as an emotionally sensitive person who is very open.
“Strong, contradictory forces consume the ESFJ. Their sense of right and wrong wrestles with an overwhelming rescuing, ‘mothering’ drive. This sometimes results in swift, immediate action taken upon a transgressor, followed by stern reprimand….”
I can relate to this as well. I even wrote a post talking about my “Mother Hen Syndrome.” It includes a quiz that you may want to take if you think you can relate.
“An ESFJ at odds with self is a remarkable sight. When a decision must be made, especially one involving the risk of conflict (abhorrent to ESFJs), there ensues an in-house wrestling match between the aforementioned black-and-white Values and the Nemesis of Discord. The contender pits self against self, once firmly deciding with the Right, then switching to Prudence to forestall hostilities, countered by unswerving Values, ad exhaustium, winner take all.”
This is unbelievable. Note the “black-and-white Values.” How many times have I blogged about the complexities of black-and-white, all or nothing, polarized thinking that is often present in those of us with BPD?

Thanks for reading.
PS My friend Aeshe just recently took and blogged about another type of test called the Myers-Briggs. You can read about her experience here. Her score was split evenly between INFP and ENFP.
Also, as a word of caution, no online test like this can diagnose, treat, or prevent any disease. Always consult a mental health professional.
