all by myself

See. I can be serious sometimes.
So, I told you several weeks ago what I do for moolah. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I am interested in personalities. Especially husband’s personality. Did you know Dan is an ESTP? So weird. Not weird because ESTPs are weird. But weird because I am an INFJ. That means that Dan and I are 100% opposite in every single way possible. Ok, that’s not true. We are actually very similar in many ways. But, as far as those silly personality tests go …
100% opposite. Opposites attract …
I take two steps forward, I take two steps back.
We come together cuz opposites attract and you know ...
Paula Abdul baby. Oh yeah.
Oh and if you’re not already saying, “Huh? Tiff’s an introvert?”
Now is the time to say it. Huh?
Don’t get me wrong, I love some good attention every now and then.
And to be completely honest with you, I can “fake” being an extrovert rather well. But then I usually wind up sick in bed for a week. And then you guys get to hear all about it. So lucky you are.
my other "serious" face.
For the most part, I get my energy from being alone.
All alone. All by myself. I love it.

So, why bring all of this up? Why post even more wedding photos? (sorry)
Well, to be completely honest with you, this last week month has made me ponder a little on this whole blogging thing. Is blogging stressing me out? Is blogging making me sick?
My conclusion? No.
Wow, you were probably really scared there for a second, huh?
What if I would have said 'Yes. I’m done. I’m deleting my blog now'.
Talk about devastating.

Are there things this introverted blogger needs to work on? Absolutely.
For one, I should probably spend a little more time on me, and a little less time on this crazy computer. I know, I know, you guys could have told me that (and I think a couple of you did). But, with that being said, I think this is also why I love blogging. I can 'talk' to others without really having to 'talk' at all. I can share my story without having to strain my voice. I can listen to other people's stories without having to nod and smile constantly to make sure that they know that I am listening. I listen guys … I promise I do. But I don’t nod and smile the entire time. Sometimes I nod, sometimes I smile, and sometimes I laugh until I cry (some of you people are freaking hilarious). But, for the most part ...
I read and I take it all in at my own speed.
All alone. All by myself.

So ... what are you?
Are you introvert like me? An extrovert like husband?
50/50? Ok, that's just plain weird.
I'm kidding. It's not. You can be 50/50.

Have no clue? Go HERE and find out.
It’s fun. I promise.

P.S. I will be trying out this little thing called "work" today. Wish me luck. And thank you all so much for your sweet comments yesterday. I will be responding to each and every one of them soon. :) Ok, maybe not. I better shoot for three months without getting sick. But really, thank you.

  1. I took this test a while back and found out I was an ENFP. Honestly, the extroverted thing suprised me. But then I realized that it's not exactly about how outgoing you are, but about where you derive your energy from, so I think it makes sense. I still think I have some introvertness in me, though :) Also, I missed your post about your job so I just read it. I think that's an amazing job, and it seems like it would fit you perfectly! So kudos to you :)

  2. I'm a total introvert too. I actually have a post scheduled where I wrote about this --thanks for stealing my blog post, I mean seriously ;) -- so I hope you don't get annoyed having to read about the same thing in a few days. You're totally right that blogging is a good way to sort of get to say what you need to say without having to pretend to be extroverted. My fiance is a total extrovert and it's beyond exhausting at times to pretend to be extroverted.

  3. When I started the job I work at now, I had to do the Myers-Briggs test. Not. . . to GET the job, don't get me wrong. That'd be weird, and I'm sure there'd be a law against it, but they'd all just done it at some staff retreat so they suggested that I do it too "for fun".
    Since I'm a nerd, and I dig stuff like that, I enjoyed it, and I turned out to be INFP.
    Turns out you and I are quite similar, does that mean you and I cannot attract? Dammit Paula.
    Or maybe this is why I find you so amusing - because deep down in our INF_ - we're connected on some level. But only to that third level, because you're a judge-r and I'm a perceive-r.
    Good luck at work today, and I hope you're feeling better!

  5. I absolutely love this post! I'm an ISTJ, I don't know what my husband is, but he is definitely an extrovert. I think that combination is a great compliment to each other! I had never thought about blogging being a great form of communication for introverts, but I totally and completely agree!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Me and my hubs are total opposites too! I'm like you -- total introvert. But I've been told that doesn't necessarily mean I'm shy (which I totally am) but that I process my thoughts internally while others just blurt out loud whatever thought pops in their heads. I like being an intro! And I think you're totally right about the blog world -- it gives us shy girls a chance to voice our opinions without actually having to say it out loud! Love it! Good luck at work today.

  7. "You are strongly touched by the stories about people's troubles" My answer? No. aka I'm an asshole.

    Actually, I'm an ISTJ.

    I'm glad we are both judge-y.

    ReplyDelete
  8. My parents are also total opposites as far as the four letters go. I have no idea how my husband and I compare...I definitely lean toward the extrovert side, though!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I took the test and I am ESFJ what that means I have not the slightest clue so if ya wanna shead some light on that that would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  10. i am right there with you! I feel relaxed and energized after spending time alone. i would almost always choose being home then going out with friends. which is the total opposite of my husband! and that is one reason why I have loved blogging - a way to open up and put myself out there without having to really be "out there". it's a great thing! hope you are feeling better today!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm a ISFJ. I think I tend to be way more introverted at home however, I talk to people for a living as a consultant so maybe that's because when I get home at night I'm just sick of talking. Thanks for sharing the test!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I am an ENFJ, so we’re somewhat similar. I love taking personality tests and seeing how close they are to describing who I am. I’m not sure if I’m actually an extrovert or if I just want to think I’m one. Haha

    Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  13. We are very alike... I'm an introvert and my husband is an extrovert. I feed off of quiet time, he just sucks the life out of me! LOL JK He does feed off of other people. It's exhausting!!! Somehow... with our jobs... I'm an Auditor and have to talk to people all day long... The husband, well he's a Financial Analyst who sits at a desks and talks to no one... How does that work? EVEN MORE EXHAUSTING! LOL PS - You talked me into Twitter... I need a manual... xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  14. i LOVE the meyers briggs test!!! i'm right on the cusp between INFP/INFJ depending on the day, which is clearly why i love you so.....

    rad!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am totally an introvert, too! My husband reminds me nearly every weekend (when we don't go out to bars) that when we met, I was an extrovert who loved to party - aka, I was 22 - now I'm a homebody.

    After I explained that PEOPLE CHANGE, I told him I (like you) recharge my batteries ALONE, or with someone who is very, very low key and anti stress...aka not half of his family in one room. The man loves to be around 1049192 people at once! kill.me.now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. of course, today, i am apparently an ISFP....hmmmm.....i've never gotten the "S" before, but i'm gonna check this out and see how i feel about it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I found your blog through Ruthie! I'm taking the quiz because I'm interested in seeing what it says about me because to be honest, I don't really know! I'd say I'm more like you as in being an introvert, but can be an extrovert at the same time. SO weird!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I started singing Celine Deon when I read your post title. I love your wedding pictures and can totally relate needing alone time to "re-energize" and focus.

  19. I am exaaaactly like you. I'm really good at faking being an extrovert, but by the end of the day, it's freaking exhausting.

    That's why, whenever my fiance has "guys nights"... I'm all, GOOD. GO!!! SEE YOU LATER!

    ...Then I watch girly shows and unwind, and I can be sane again.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Jeez I took the test and I knew I was introvert, but 78% introvert?!? No wonder hubby and I butt heads some times. So I'm an ISFJ. This explains my most recent blog post too. I am going to get hubby to take this test now!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Crazy, I was an ESFJ in college and now I'm an ISFJ... getting more introverted with my "old" age, ha!

    ReplyDelete
  22. i guess i need to take this test because all these letters mean NOTHING to me. NTHG. i love getting to know more about you. it's like stalking with permission.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I came out "slightly more" introverted than extroverted! I THRIVE off of client interaction during the day - I could never be a purely transactional attorney. But at home? I want quiet and family time on the weekends, small dinner parties with friends...that's how I recharge I suppose :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think I am on those weirdos that are 50/50. And I had never thought about it but yeah, I am pretty good at faking being an extrovert sometimes. Unless I'm in public and am hungry and no one is feeding me. Then I am just plain ole mean and a sourpuss. Don't I sound fun?! Ha

    ReplyDelete
  25. I LOVE spending time alone too and rarely get to. I am the kind of person who can go to dinner alone, go on a trip alone, you name it. I am also completely type A and extroverted. Strange combo. I like blogs because I think that it opens some kind of window to the more introverted peoples' lives and thoughts and we all have a natural curiosity to know.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha seriously you always make me laugh this is so funny. I must take this test.

  27. i'm an introvert, for sure. and just like you I LOVE BEING ALONE.

    Hunter is an introvert too, which is why i think we are so attached at the hip. I secretly, not so secretly, love that about us.

    Tiff, you are amazing. Do whatever you need to do to rest, get better and de-stress. I'm glad that blogging isn't your problem though, because I would miss you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i'll have to take this test because i honestly have no idea what i am!

    and glad you aren't deleting your blog. because i would be sad. and cry. and cry some more. i cry ugly so not cute at all.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm an ENFJ, which means I am an extravert I guess. I totally don't believe that. My nervousness in new situations causes me to kind of be funny though. I can embrace an awkward moment and make it more awkward for comedic purposes, so that is usually what I do.

    You did have me scared there for a moment that you would be deleting the blog. Don't scare me like that!!

    I hope you are feeling better!

  31. I've had to take the Myers Briggs personality test a few times, and every single time it comes back saying I'm incredibly introverted. I'm pretty sure that one time it told me I was the most introverted person to ever take the test.

    By the way, I'm glad you're not closing your blog! When I started to read that, I was so afraid that's where you were going. Silly, but I love reading what you share!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love your wedding pictures ! And I would be sad if you deleted your blog, I think you are pretty hysterical :) and apparently I am an ISFJ ...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Weird! I took this test for work before I started and am also an INFJ! Turns out in our office, the only people with 'Judging' are Project Managers, like myself! Funny how accurate that stuff can be.
    Feel better lady!

  34. I'm a total introvert too, though people that know me best don't see it...I guess I'm more extravert around those close to me.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd never actually found the survey before - just people saying they'd taken it. So thanks for sharing! I'm an ISTJ, which I figured (at least the first part) I would be. I'e definitely always been pretty introverted...something I've got mixed feelings about.

  36. This post is awesome. I too am an INFJ and married to and almost complete opposite ESTJ. It shouldn't work, but it does :) I also call myself a "fake extrovert" because I can force myself to be very social and energetic but then I crash for a week. or a month. or I wish I could crash for a few months. My hubby does not understand my need to recharge my batteries but he's learning....ever so slowly.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I too am an introvert. I think that's why I love blogging too. I can talk to people without the anxiety of actually talking to people. I have a lot of blog friends that are that way.
    I am the same. I re-energize on my own by myself.
    I like your wedding pics!

    ReplyDelete
  38. When I took the Myers Briggs a few years back at work, I was an INFJ as well! I've learned to be more extroverted over the years, especially at work, but my core personality is an introvert especially with new people and new environments! A lot of people who know me at work are surprised when they hear I'm an introvert, so I guess I play a pretty good role when I need to :) I love alone time though and drive some of my friends nuts with that! But when I'm on the go and active and talking and socializing A LOT, nothing relaxes me better than to be a hermit for a while and do my own thing!

  39. your photos of you are so gorgeous!! i love love your hair

  40. I know I'm an ENFP. I found that out in my first year of university, I think, and reading up on my personality type was SO AMAZING. Honestly, everything ever written or said about ENFP people is SO ME.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm an ISFJ!!! Yeahhhhh introverts!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ps I'm convinced most bloggers are introverts extroverts couldn't handle the interwebs communication

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am such an introvert but most people don't think I am. Weird. I don't prefer people, I like peace and quiet :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. okay....I can barely get through reading the post bc I am memorized by your wedding pictures!!!!!!

  45. I have Celine Dion stuck in my head now.... Thanks Tiff. As for my personality type, I think it changes by the day. Is that bad? All I know is Adam is definitely more E than me!

  46. Test says I'm an ENFJ.
    When I was younger I used to be a total introvert, but nowadays I'm mostly an extrovert...but you know, there are some situations when I feel like a little kid being totally insecure and not confident at all. Like, seriously ridiculous situations, sometimes I feel good in that situation and sometimes I don't. Well, I hope you get what I'm trying to say :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm ISTP. Although I talk a lot, so people think I'm an extrovert. Really it's a barrier-strategy, or so the psychology nerds say...
    It's part of why, despite my extreme laziness, I like walking my dogs. Assuming they behave, of course.
    Now I needs to know more about this... and get Paul to take it. I guarantee he's an I... and whatever involves "avoids confrontation to the extreme". I'm a "beat that argument to death, then prop it up and kick it in the balls until it dies again" kind of person. Let's talk about how well that works in our house :) My point is, we're complete and total opposites, too- other than the whole inner hermit thing.

    ReplyDelete
  48. introvert. right here. says that test i just took.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I can't remember my whole code - but am definitely an extrovert. I love studying peoples personalities and find it extremely interesting:)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm an ENFJ...and what does it say about my personality that I DETEST these kind of quizzes?? I get all wrapped in how they can be yes in some situations and no in others! haha...it said I'm slightly more extroverted..which is definitely true. I have been told by many, many people that they thought I was a quiet, shy, little thing when they first met me. I quietly take in new people and situations like a lady...but I'm the youngest in a family of 12 kids so i know how to work the center of attention role; I just have to feel out my crowd first. haha..no, seriously, it's that I truly love a good balance. I wake up before the sun so I can take my time alone with my coffee in the morning, I also fit in my workout with my headphones in and eyes closed, and I crave a long run by myself at the end of every day. In between those alone times, I truly enjoy socializing with people and finding out who they are and what they are all about..and I also crave public speaking--which is odd, right?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am an introvert too and that is why I decided to start blogging! Twins, I tell ya! Hope you're feeling better!

    ReplyDelete
  52. love your blog!! the wedding pictures are gorgeous! and okay im one of the weirdos, basically 50/50 hahaa im 1% extroverted!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm technically an extrovert because i thrive with people. problem? I tend to be a horrible human being and dislike most humans. So I'm an introvert by default.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I hope you are feeling better today! It's no fun being sick. :( I can totally relate to you. While I do have a very outgoing personality, I tend to give so much of myself to others, so much so that at the end of the day I'm left feeling pretty depleted. The only way I can function and not loose my sanity is to get my alone time. Thank goodness for daycare. I'll sent the kids to daycare every day for about 5 hours a day. It's good for them and it's so much needed for me. Then I can give and give and not be psychotic. :) If I haven't told you how awesome you re enough Tiff, you are so very AWESOME inside and out! I'm so thankful for your blog :) Please get some rest and some "me" time :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. ESFJ, baby! I'm in a career counseling class right now for my master's in clinical counseling and we just talked about this this week. I was an ENTJ the last time I took this personality mumbo jumbo, but I am changing my old age. Ha! Seriously, I am an extrovert and can talk your face off, even if you don't smile and nod (hell, you could probably fall asleep and I'd keep going. Ok, I'm not that bad. I mean, am I? *scratch head in wonder*), but I'm noticing more and more how much I like my quiet time. Balance is the key to happiness, my sweet friend.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I know exactly what you mean. Everybody is usually really surprised to find I am more of an introvert. I regret just about 80% of the things I say to people "off the cuff", and that is why blogging has been so important. To really think about what you will say, know that you are saying what you mean...and being able to proofread it. :)

    Which is why it is so hard for me to forgive people who say crazy, nasty things all over the internet...if that makes sense?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Okay first off, you DID almost scare me there! Second, I love personality tests :) I'm an IFSJ.. I've always been an introvert! And now you got me wondering what the boyfriend would get, because I've always said we're complete opposites. Must force him to sit down and take this!

    Oh and YES to you taking more time to yourself. When all else fails, that is one thing that is sure to make you feel much better internally.

  58. I feel like most people on blogs would be an introvert since tends to be a somewhat anti-social activity. I found out i am an ENFJ, with only marginal or no preference of Extraversion over Introversion (1%). What does that make me? 50/50? I think that as I am getting older, I am growing more introverted. Please analyze me, friend!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm an introvert, and the test backed me up - ISFJ
    I love spending time alone too and I need it, if I don't get it, I get antsy.
    I'm glad your blog isn't going anywhere, look after yourself though, make sure you make some time for you.

    ReplyDelete
  60. So happy you're not deleting this blog! I'd miss you :)
    Like you I can fake being an extrovert pretty awesomely. But I am definitely an introvert. I love my friends and husband (should he have come first?) but I also love my alone time. I'm good with it. Sometimes I've wondered if I'm too much of an introvert for blogging. I still don't know lol.

    ReplyDelete
  61. oh, i'm such an ISFJ.. only the 3rd i've seen so far out of your comments...
    yes, i checked to see if others were like me!
    i think this whole nursing school thing has changed me.
    still an introvert, but definitely more leaning towards 'feelings'
    Introvert(56%) Sensing(12%) Feeling(50%) Judging(89%)
    oh, and i don't judge.
    but for real?? 89%
    your wedding pics are flawless!
    you're such a classic beauty tiff!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm definitely an ISFJ. I can be extroverted when I need to be. I'm pretty sure my boyfriend would be an introvert too, but in a much different way.

    My new boss just told me I'm going to be grade level chair. In charge of a group of people I've never met. The introvert in me is FREAKING out. But with my fake extrovertness, I was like ok awesome!! Plus ISFJs like to get things done their way. :)

    Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hmm... I'm a ESTJ... definitely sure about the E and the J... not quite sure how S differs from I and T is pretty close. What does it say about my personality, if I chose "yes" more often than "no", because I like to please?

    Hope you feel better soon!

  65. i have taken this test multiple times, seriously. but its always different. haha. i'm sure ryan and i are probably slightly opposite, not completely, but slightly. hahaha.

    ps hope you are feeling better cute girl

  66. I'm a total introvert! Husband is completely opposite. I'm a good faker, too!! Being fake is the best! Ha! Totally kidding. When I fake being really outgoing and social, I'm completely exhausted and have to sleep for thirty-seven hours to recover. That's why I'm better just being by my lonesome. I like to observe. "Me" time totally recharges me! Not sure how it all works...but that's probably why I like coffee so much! It's usually when I get the best alone time.
    Get feeling better, Tiff!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love this post! My boyfriend and I are opposite on everything, personality tests, ideas, we even looked up are zodiac compatibility... it said "beware" and warned people with these signs to not enter relationships. Lovely right?
    But I digress. He is a lot like you've described. He thrives on alone time, while I'm energized by crowds and need to have a lot going on and people around always. It's nice to hear about the other side!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I just found you through An Organized Mess and I am loving you! I can totally relate to this (Hubs being extremely extroverted and me being completely opposite)! Looking forward to reading more from you :)

  69. Being in Human Resources I use MBTI a lot especially when recruiting new staff.

    I dislike the abbreviations because I feel my personality is much to big to be reduced to like four little letters so I came up with this:

    I am an Extremely Nice Friendly Person....as in ENFP!!!

    Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Definitely an introvert! I do feel like my husband does a good job of balancing me out and getting me out and about. Really often, I still don't enjoy grasping at straws to find something to talk about with a semi-stranger.

    And yeah, for the amount of time I spend in front of the computer with everything blogging related, someone should seriously pay me ;)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I am an introvert. And the older I get the more I realize it. I love blogging because I can hide behind the computer but when someone brings up my blog I get all embarrassed. People assume I am an extrovert because that's what Bloggers and Project Managers are. But I am not. And I think I am pretty good at both jobs.

    And yes, I was a bit worried you were going to say you were done blogging. I only just found you last month! No worries if you don’t respond to my post, I am cool with that. I hope you recover quickly, Sherm needs a walk!

  73. I'm high fiving you in my head right now. I am a TOTAL introvert. To the extreme. I thrive on being alone and I absolutely love it. I mean, not all the time. I DO interact with people and I love that too, but it exhausts me quickly. There's such pressure in the world to be extroverted, and I feel like introversion is looked down on to a degree. So cheers to fellow introverts!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ha, I am an introvert myself and find myself opening up a bit more on my blog. It's funny how "hiding" behind a computer can make you become really open and honest with virtual strangers...an aspect of the blogging world that I love.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm an XNFJ... that means that my introvert/extrovert sides are almost totally balanced. It is hard to feed my introvert side though, and keep up on blogging, work, relationships, etc...

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm ESFJ. Which means i'm 50% Dan and 50% Tiff... Creepy.

  77. I totally forgot what I am.. ha! But I am defiantly a introvert :)

  79. psh don't apologize for wedding photos, SO PRETTY! i think i'm more extrovert, but each year i think i get a little bit more introverted. maybe it's just people annoying me? probably.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sucha fun quiz! I am a ESFJ - definitely spot on and a tad scary when reading the description! Glad you decided to keep the blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I am an ENFP and this is my fave quiz ever. The funniest part is a fictional version of myself is Ariel from the little mermaid. My mom tells me I watched it on repeat as a child. BEST. MOVIE. EVER. hehehe.

  82. Interesting! My man and I are exact opposites too. To the tune of: Me-ISFP Him-ENTJ. Yup. I'm an introvert too. AND I totally get Exactly what you're talking about. About it all. :)

  83. ESFJ for me, although I'm hideous at these tests because I'm never sure I understand the questions well enough to answer them properly!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Shut up! I am sooooo obsessed with brain typing and meter's briggs. I will have to tell you more about it--it's about a man titled Niednagel. It's a more advanced meyers briggs testing and has more to do with your brain than personality. But I love it. I am an INFP--but I knew thats why I liked you :) INFP and INFJ"s get along really well. I can tell you so much bout this. I need to do a blog post on this!
