The Mediator The Mediator
ArthurCurry - 20 days 19 hours ago.
My brother is an entrepreneur, and on his business facebook page, he asked his followers to go to 16personalities.com. Now, I have taken Myers-Briggs personality tests before, and I have always gotten one of two results: INFJ or ISFJ. I always straddle the line between an IN and an IS. I decided to go ahead and take this test on my brother’s request, though, and see how accurate I felt like this new website was. The test, itself, was painless and relatively quick. I didn’t clock myself, but the ...
