Myers Briggs Type Indicator

This is called the MBIT test, which helps you find out your pesonality, and what kind of a job suits you the best. If you want to know more, please read, Stephen .P. Robbin's- Organisational Behaviour. (don't blame me if the book puts you to sleep)

My results were as follows.
Your personality type is ENFJ.
Extraverted (E) 50% Introverted (I) 50%
Intuitive (N) 68% Sensing (S) 32%
Feeling (F) 55% Thinking (T) 45%
Judging (J) 55% Perceiving (P) 45%

ENFJs generally have the following traits:

  • Genuinely and warmly interested in people
  • Value people's feelings.
  • Value structure and organization
  • Value harmony, and good at creating it
  • Exceptionally good people skills
  • Dislike impersonal logic and analysis
  • Strong organizational capabilities
  • Loyal and honest
  • Creative and imaginative
  • Enjoy variety and new challenges
  • Get personal satisfaction from helping others
  • Extremely sensitive to criticism and discord
  • Need approval from others to feel good about themselves

The flexibility of these characteristics leaves the ENFJ a lot of leeway in choosing a profession. As long as they're in a supportive environment in which they can work with people and are presented with sufficient diverse challenges to stimulate their creativity, they should do very well.

Possible Career Paths for the ENFJ:
Facilitator
Consultant (I play consultant to many people :P)
Psychologist (Pyscho la pyschologist uh?)
Social Worker / Counselor(I did community service in coll for credits)
Teacher (students ellarum fail aiyduva :P)
Clergy (chumma oru pechuku Art of Living guru nu sonna, ippidi sollitele!)
Human Resources (Food resources)
Manager (Neenga rombaa nallavangaa saar)
Events Coordinator (Depends on the kind of event)
Sales Representative (Selling what?!)
Politicians / Diplomats (Yeaaah Right)
Writers

Extravert, iNtuitive, Feeler, Judger (ENFJ)
Vivacious, warm, compassionate, and articulate, ENFJs are among the most skillful communicators. Tactful and diplomatic, they are patient listeners and have a rare gift for making personal connections. ENFJs are concerned with global issues, exceptionally attuned to others’ needs and passionate about finding creative solutions to help people in long-term ways. They are happiest when they have a plan and can work cooperatively with others to realize their goals. Being naturally orderly, ENFJs prefer an organized world and like to have matters settled, even if someone else is making the decisions. ENFJs radiate sympathy and understanding and are nurturing and supportive of others.

ENFJs Tend To Be:

  • Excellent communicators – great at facilitating, writing, & presenting
  • Enthusiastic, persuasive & able to build consensus
  • Inspiring leaders, creative problem solvers & great collaborators
  • Empathetic & able to anticipate others' needs
  • Quick to see the "big picture" possibilities
  • Decisive, organized & driven to be productive & reach their goals

The results were quite accurate, but grossly overrated.. Please give me better career options :)
