β€œIt’s so incredible to finally be understood.”

A year ago at a dinner party we all took this personality test – 16 Personalities (https://www.16personalities.com/) – and shared our personality type.

It was pretty accurate. It felt like a good description of who I was.

Over the last few years, as I’ve dated people or had significant people come into my life, I’ve asked them to take the test, so I could understand more about their personality type and how we interacted.

It’s been a very useful tool. It has helped me see where I am compatible with people and where we are incompatible.

I decided, spur of the moment, after a conversation with Philip Morgan of The Positioning Manual, to take it again.

I got a slightly different result this time (ENFJ “The Protagonist” to ENFP “The Campaigner”) and it is scary accurate.

I’m talking downright “Holy Shit” moments.

I read two paragraphs that described (perfectly) my romantic relationships since I was 18. I just sat there, neutral-faced 😐. saying “Yup.”

I want to see how accurate it is for you.

Here’s what they say about themselves:

“It’s so incredible to finally be understood.”

The Curse of Greyface

I’m reminded of a story in the Principia Discordia revolving around a fictional figured named Greyface.

Greyface preached that we should preserve Serious Order and eradicate spontaneity (and even play) at any and all costs.

Greyface and his followers took the game of playing at life more seriously than they look life itself and were known even to destroy other living beings who ways of life differed from their own.

The Discordian “Curse of Greyface” refers to a psychological and spiritual imbalance that results from these beliefs

This imbalance causes frustration, and frustration causes fear. And fear makes for a bad trip. Humanity has been on a bad trip for a long time now.

Embrace the creative forces of order and disorder, my friend.
