Personality Types

I sure that most of you have taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator. I am a ISTJ. I recently ran across the results from my test and stapled to the back was a list of prayers for each personality type.

Here is mine: "Lord, help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at 11:41.23 CST (17:41.23 GMT)."

If you want to know your specific personality type prayer, comment with your type and I will answer you in the comments.

What had me digging through my old files? Well, I received the books that I mentioned a few days ago. They are all about tailoring your prayer life and spirituality based on your type. I'm getting started on the reading at exactly 9:55.45 CST :)

You're an ISTJ? Too funny. I'm an ENFP (as an aside, when I was in college and went on a mission trip to Russia, all of the leadership team were ISTJ).

So anyway, what's my prayer?

MoreCows- My daughter shares your personality profile. She rushed to the computer to take the test when she saw the different prayers for each type.

ENFJ Prayer: "God help me to do only what I can and trust you for the rest, (By the way, do you mind putting that in writing, in triplicate and sending one copy to me and one to my lawyer and one to the PPR committee."

Writing as Jo(e): I feel your pain married to an ISTJ. I know we can be very, very bossy at times. And while a mess doesn't always totally bother me....I still want everything right where it's supposed to go. :)

Rev. Dulce said...

Crimson, your prayer is:

INFP: "God, help me finish everthing I sta

These are awesome!

I know these prayers and the humor inherent in them are the only bright and shining spot in this whole Psych Eval process. I would have never found them again if I hadn't been forced by the circumstances to dig through all my old files.
