The Campaigner

So, yesterday I found out I’m an ENFP according to the Myers Briggs personality test—Apparently I’m “The Campaigner.”

Which is absolutely nuts considering the last time I took it I was scored as an ESFJ (“The Consul”)!!

At first, I denied it. I said, “What?!? This can’t be right. This must be wrong. I must have answered incorrectly.” (Lmk how you can answer “incorrectly” on a quiz about yourself bc obviously I’m confused lol).

A friend of mine encouraged me to read the little “profile” for the ENFP so I did—after reading the first paragraph I knew it had pegged me on the head.

The quotes said:

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer

After reading that I felt as though my heart was set on fire and my soul beamed with delight!! I felt so known and understood—it was amazing.

It was amazing because through this discovery I was able to understand more about myself—I was able to see that I’m not actually crazy (well, the bad type anyways 😉 ) but that I actually was made this way. I was made to have this kind of desire; I was made to have this fervent energy about me that seeks to connect with people, to experience life—to truly live.

It was in this moment that I was able to grow closer and closer to understand and accepting that God “fearfully and wonderfully made” me. In this moment I am able to say, “I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Proverbs 139:14).

For such a long time, I’ve felt that I wasn’t “right.” That I had a problem, that I needed to be “fixed” because something was off with my make-up.

And while I still have a long way to go, I am getting closer and closer to discovering and becoming who I am, all the while growing nearer and nearer to my Savior. What a blessing it is to have a God that wants you to be the best version of yourself—the self that HE made and the self that He created you to be—the self in which you will THRIVE.

So my friends, if you have ever felt like you’re not “right”, as though you aren’t enough, as though who you are is not enough, STOP and look to the one who CREATED you.

You are the crown of ALL creation; you were created by the King of all Kings; the Master Artist, the Ruler of the Universe. You were created PERFECTLY by the One who made the stars—whether society, your friends, your family, or the world tells you differently.

Keep on rockin’ my ppl—ily ❤
