This much I know about myself (I know a lot more, but go with me on this). I’m under the astrological sign of Leo and the Chinese Zodiac sign of Rooster (specifically Earth Rooster). I’ve just completed the Myers Briggs Personality test. This test was developed by Isabel Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs. It’s based on the theories of psychiatrist/psychoanalyst Carl Jung. I’m an ISFJ (Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging). I will go over the traits of Leo, Rooster and ISFJ both positive and negative and highlight what I believe to be true for me. Here goes.
TRAITS OF LEO
Leo the lioness as I call myself. Once I’m understood I am straight forward and fairly predictable. The challenge is in understanding me however. Confident, fearless, charismatic and powerful. Optimistic, warm-hearted and outgoing. Dignified, playful, ambitious and loyal. Flamboyant.
Aggressive, dramatic, impulsive. Egotistical, demanding, intolerant, domineering, lazy and stubborn. Leos can be sensitive and hurt easily. Materialistic, have high expectations and can be easily disappointed.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS
I believe it is hard getting to know me. I don’t give much away. It takes me a while to warm up to people. I’m working on being more confident and fearless. I need to believe I’m powerful a lot more. I’m the eternal optimist and I have a good heart. Outgoing? Flamboyant? – not so much. I am a dignified person and can be playful when I want to be. I have ambitions I’m yet to realise. I’m not egotistical, demanding or domineering. I don’t believe I’m aggressive, dramatic or impulsive. I’m way too cautious for that. I am sensitive and hurt easily. I like my material things, but I’m not obsessed with them. I can feel let down by people at times.
TRAITS OF ROOSTER
Roosters are deep thinkers. Honest, bright, communicative, ambitious, capable and warm-hearted. They have a healthy self-respect and are meticulous, consistent, outgoing and skilful. Roosters are conscientious and hate dawdlers. They are efficient. Faithful and punctual. Courageous and humourous. They attach a lot of importance on love. Active, not quiet.
Impatient, overconfident and preachy. They are critical and think they are always right. Narrow minded and arrogant. Roosters aren’t willing to listen to others’ opinions. Roosters can be emotional and vain.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS
Yes I am a deep thinker. I believe I’m honest and bright which I take to mean intelligent, smart or clever and quick at learning new things. I am capable and warm- hearted. I’m working on respecting myself more. I’m definitely consistent and conscientious and I must admit I dislike dawdlers. I like to get things done. I’m punctual and can be humourous at times. I’m more quiet than I am active. I don’t think I’m overconfident. I think I can be a little preachy and think I’m right while the other person is wrong. I need to work on listening to what other people have to say.
ISFJ (INTROVERTED, SENSING, FEELING, JUDGING)
ISFJ people are supportive, reliable, and patient. Imaginative and observant. Loyal, humble and shy. They only enter relationships that have a real chance of lasting. ISFJ want commitment and appreciation. They like to get to know someone little by little. They are trustworthy, loving and faithful. Their kindness can be taken advantage of.
ISFJ can take things too personally due to their sensitivity. Repress their feelings and are reluctant to change.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS
There’s a lot more to an ISFJ than this, however I think this summarises their most important traits. I can’t disagree with any of this. I am all of the above.
This has been an interesting exercise. Across Leo, Rooster and ISFJ some traits are similar. I think I know myself fairly well and it helps to know my weaknesses or negative traits so I can work on them and be the best person I can be.
Blessings to all xx
