Hello everyone!

I just recently became interested with the enneagram and the MBTI. I purchased a book (Please Understand Me II) and took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II which give me the results xNFx. It took some time, but I decided that the INFP really fits me well (or at least better than the others :wink:) I have a lot of questions about this type and am looking forward to meeting new people that may be able to sort these questions out.

I am a musician and love love love French. I am a little quirky (but aren't we all!) and my friends describe me as being friendly, interesting, and nice to be around. I have been diagnosed with Bipolar I disorder and have extreme problems with my anxiety. I have always done well in school and I want to pursue some profession in the French field. I found it very interesting that INFPs are often drawn to foreign language. A lot of what I have read on the enneagram and the MBTI have amazed me because of how precise these system (especially when combined) are.

I am so glad that they have online communities where I can talk to people that share my personality type. I hope that this experience will yield a better understanding on my life and those around me!

Thanks for reading! :happy:

Welcome and I was fascinated at how accurate the MBTI was for me and the enneagram as well.

Dude! You sound exactly like my INFP friend whom I recently spammed with demotivational ENFP posters of myself. Off the topic of me, welcome to the forums. :D

Wow, I don't recall having read or heard specifically that INFPs are more drawn to foreign languages than other types... how interesting! When I became engaged to a Polak (and btw I've heard that may be considered a derogatory term here in America, but it's not so in Poland, it's just the normal word they call themselves!) I discovered a previously unrealized talent for learning foreign language... it wasn't a big deal for me to pronounce consonant-heavy things like "chrzaszcz brzmi w trzcinie Szczebrzeszynie" and to absorb & remember words pretty quickly, but everyone around me was amazed! :) Now I know that perhaps I have my personality type to thank at least to some degree! :) (And btw I'm not fluent in Polish yet, but hope to be at some point...) I've never studied French, but it's interesting how many Polish words obviously came straight from French and just had their spelling changed... "creme" became "krem" and "chance" became "szans" but the pronunciation is exactly the same... it makes me laugh to hear elegant, cultured-sounding French words while seeing the logical, phonetic, kindergartener-ish Polish spelling, in which there's never such a thing as unpronounced letters! :D :D

Anyway -- glad to make your acquaintance! :) :)
