I'm just a clock.

I've always been interested in psychology, pop or otherwise, and I'm constantly curious about what makes people tick.  I'm also a long-time self-analyzer,  and I've known since college that my Myers Briggs personality type is ISTJ.

(If you want to find out your Myers Briggs type, there's a REALLY shortened version of the test here.)  

Now for those of you who don't speak pop psychology, that means I'm Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging, or in a nutshell, kinda dull, pretty rigid, and sort of dreary.


Anyway, not too long ago, I ran across a graphic on Pinterest that listed all the different personality types by Disney character, which I thought was fabulous and funny and probably pretty accurate.  

Oh yes!  The Lion King!  My hubby is an ENFJ.  MY HUBBY IS THE LION KING!  Or Jesus.  Or Gandhi.  Whatever.  While that seems slightly intimidating, that right there is a good person to have in your corner.

And next up there's Tarzan.  I don't personally know any ISTPs, but how awesome would it be to be so brave and adventuresome?

Oh look!  It's that dude from 101 Dalmatians!   He's so kind! So talented!  Such an animal lover.  How amazing it must be to live in his brain!

Well hello there sir!  I have no idea who you are, but you sure do seem suave, debonair, and self-assured, which are all traits I strive for daily.

Oh Belle, I love everything about you! I have always wanted to be you!  Also? You have the best library I've ever seen.

You gallant steed! Your ESTJ values shine through everything you do!  You're my people-loving counterpart! 

Flynn, you're such a scoundrel, but in a totally lovable, charming way.  

And Pocahontas, you're the epitome of the phrase "still waters run deep!"  You will always do the right thing, no matter the cost.

Oh you fabulous INTJ rat you! You are solving all the world's problems, aren't you?

Peter Pan!  An ESFP of course.  A good friend of mine is an ESFP, and I love being around her, because it's all laughs, all the time!

Ah, yes.  The INTP.   Milo is a perfect representation of your skills, your intelligence, your passion for your subject matter! 

My bestie is and ESFJ.  OH MY GOODNESS!  MY BESTIE IS MARY FREAKING POPPINS!  How awesome is that?!?!?!

Well, hello Cap'n!  You're so quick witted, so good fun... so... swashbuckling!

Oh Tiana!  Your work ethic is one to be admired!  And you're so positive about everything!

Look!  Arial's an ENFP, of course.  She has a personality that's larger than life, and a strange love of shiny inanimate objects.

Oh, they must have saved the best for last!  I'm up next!  I can't wait to find out what Disney character I, an ISTJ, am the most like.  I bet it's someone fabulous!  I bet it's...  Oh my goodness I can't stand it!  Ok, I'm....

A clock?

I'm a freaking clock?!?!

Not only am I a CLOCK, but I'm a clock who, after being cursed to become a clock, still hangs around, mopping and cleaning and whatever.

I'm a mopping clock.

A clock who really should be a person, but instead of doing anything about that, I hang out picking up after a grumpy beast.

Seriously?  I'm the most boring Disney character ever.  EVER.  I'm not sure I even qualify as a Disney character... SINCE I'M A CLOCK.

Ok, now you know how I feel about my Disney counterpart...

How do you feel about yours?

  1. I haven't taken the test in a long time, so I just did. I am your polar opposite - an ENFP. But I am only 1% away from an INFP. So I'm Ariel or Belle.

  2. Dang, girl. I'm a freakin' clock too! ISTJ all the way!

    1. I've never actually known another ISTJ before. We should compare notes.

  3. I've always wanted to be Mary Poppins. Yeah! ;)

    1. Everyone needs a Mary Poppins in her life. Definitely!

  4. ISFJ. I don't even know who that chick is :)

    1. Oh, you would like her, I think :) She has a good attitude and a great work ethic. It's hard to beat that.

    2. LOL!
      fyi, I love me a working clock :-)

  5. ISFJ is Tiana from Princess and the Frog.

    I'm INTJ - Basil from The Great Mouse Detective, which is great. I love every incarnation of Sherlock Holmes, rodent included :)

    1. Well that's perfect then! I'm not sure you noticed, but I'm a FREAKING CLOCK WHO DOES HOUSEWORK. :)
