Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Psalms 35:1
In my quest to learn about God, I learned something very interesting about myself during one of my classes this semester. According to the Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ typological (HumanMetrics) assessment, my personality is that of a Rational. From the four kinds of Rationals (ENTJ, INTJ, ENTP, INTP), I am an INTJ.
As an INTJ, my preference is that of an introverted, intuitive, thinking and judging individual, who often appears assured and self-confident, which is frequently taken erroneously for arrogance. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, arrogance is defined as an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people. After careful and profound reflection, I cannot think of one instance in my life where I felt that I was better, smarter, or more important than others or knowingly acted as if I was. Why do I need to feel that I am better than others?
