  1. That reminds me of how my best friend bet my little brother $50 that he would still be shorter than her when he’s fifteen. He’s thirteen now and he’s already as tall as me … and Bailey’s not that much taller than me. XD

  2. XD :P. I’m a pretty big realist, but I also have a touch of dreamer, mostly boasting about how I’m going to be taller than my string bean brother. XD. He’s 6’4″. My other friend is an INFP, which I find funny since she’s pretty social, and not very dreamy.

  3. Ooh, awesome! That’s my BFF. Although she’s maybe just a touch of a dreamer based on the way she’s apparently going to meet this amazing guy someday and she’ll just “know he’s the one.” Me: “You’re … crazy …” 😛

  4. Go ahead and give me the credit anyway. 😉

    I … write on the couch with a laptop most of the time. 😛 I also sometimes write at the desk on the desktop (haha) in the “homeschool room” and … I can write practically anywhere in a notebook. But that is a good idea … *thinks about how I could do that*

  5. MBTI types are so intriguing! I’ve been kinda obsessed with them for a while now…I mean I CAN give you the credit if you want…? 😛
    This spotlight was awesome! Maybe for next month you could do like a post about your writing space like a tour of your desk or wherever you write or something? Idk, that might seem kinda random but you asked for suggestions. 😉 Idk, it might be fun!

  6. I think most of my friends are introverts except one. And another one says she’s an extrovert, but I refuse to believe her. 😉 Hehe, she probably is though … or she’s kinda an ambivert; I suppose that’s an option. I think the rest are pretty much introverted?

  7. Ah……….I’m such an extrovert if I’m comfortable(at home usually), but at social events, until I get into the crowd, I could be mistaken for an introvert. 😉

  8. Yes, I am! I can come off as extroverted online if I’m comfortable … say on my blog or talking to people I know … but I can even be shy on social media or such. 🙂

  9. I think I write about both introverted and extroverted characters, but I do think I lean towards introverted. And I’m am introverted … but I don’t know. I like writing about extroverts, too, though it’s harder for me!

  10. Yes, it’s a great way to make sure you have a variety of characters. I’ve also done some research about which personality types are more inclined to get along with which others so I can figure out why my characters are so irritable with each other. 😉

  11. My main character in one of my books is totally ISFJ. He is such an Introvert. I usually write about introverts…..Which is very strange, because I myself am an extrovert………;) I should do this for all my characters……

  12. That would be fun! I’d love to see that. Of course, I have so many characters that I ended up finding at least one person for every personality type across several books … so I cheated a little. 😛

  13. That’s pretty fun! I might want to do a chart like this for Kiera just in case people want to know which character they are. I already have strong guesses at what certain ones will be. 😀

  14. Whoa, cool! I have a very different personality from both my brother and best friend. Well, maybe I’m a little more similar to my little brother … I couldn’t tell you. He has a weird personality, and I’ve never been able to figure out his type.

    So, yeah, I’m ISTP/INTJ and my BFF is ESFP and my brother is probably ESFJ? Or something like that? I don’t know.

    *doesn’t know why I told you all that* *shrugs*

  15. Eh, I don’t really do that who Te Ne Ni whatever thing. It’s just too complicated for my lil’ brain. 😉 I think Introverted Thinking vs. Extroverted Thinking is more about how you think, though, than whether you’re introverted or extroverted? I know I’m extroverted thinking but am an introvert as in I get my energy from being alone + am self-obsessed. 😉

  16. Whew, I’m not alone … 😀

    Oh, cool! I know a lot of INFPs! Well, three or four, anyway.

    Yes, it was super fun, and I enjoyed it. Probably a bit of a time-waster, but oh well!

  17. That’s so cool that you did a post on this!! I took the test for speech and debate, and I am an ESTP-A!! I am the exact same as my brother and best friend, but the exact opposite of everybody else that I know!!

  18. I think you might be INTJ if you’re a rule-follow – P is Perceiving, J is Judging. 🙂 Although sometimes the letters come together to form weird personalities so you could be something different. I don’t know.

  19. Actually, the only one I used a quiz for was Kirk. And even then I had to change him later as I figured out more about him. 😉

    Mostly, I read summaries of the personality types and wrote down several which each character could be – I already knew introverted/extroverted and sometimes thinking/feeling for most of them – and then I narrowed it down with tons of online searches and reading details descriptions of each personality and such. It took over a week. But then I already had Alice, Ivy, Peter, and some of the others.

  20. According to my other MBTI-obsessed friend, Introverted Thinking vs. Extroverted thinking is based on whose emotions you’re more in tune with, not necessarily whether you’re Introverted or Extroverted. If you’re more emotionally connected with yourself (as in self-aware of your body, your emotions, and your needs) then you’d be I, and if you were more emotionally connected with others than yourself, you’d be E.
    Of course, she gets into the whole Ti vs. Te and Ne Ni and Si and Se and Fi and Fe, which is a heck of a lot more than I understand. I tried to have her explain it to me, and I got an entire MBTI paper in the email, so… yeah.

  21. Ha, I thought I was the only one who was just slightly obsessed with personality types 😄 Proud INFP over here!! And that’s such a cool idea to figure out your character’s personality types.

  22. Wow that’s cool! I was always wondering what INFJ meant, since there are so many people saying in their bios that they are INFJ’s. XD
    So I think I’m an INTP if that means that I am introverted, dreamer, thinker, rule-follower. Am I right? 😉

  23. Awesomely cool! I guess this makes me Nettie then since I’m an INFJ. 😉 Did you use the quiz to figure this all out? I might want to do it for my own characters too. 😉
