“Personality is everything.” We’ve all heard that before! There are 16 different personalities, according to Katharine Cook Briggs and her studies. So, what’s your personality type? Take the quick 10-minute quiz to find out! Members of the BumbleBar team completed the short questionnaire, and this is what we discovered:
BumbleBar CEO, Liz, is an INTP. The INTP personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there’s nothing they’d be more unhappy about than being “common”. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, INTPs have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history. Read more about our CEO’s strengths below!
- Great Analysts and Abstract Thinkers – People with the INTP personality type view the world as a big, complex machine, and recognize that as with any machine, all parts are interrelated. INTPs excel in analyzing these connections, seeing how seemingly unrelated factors tie in with each other in ways that bewilder most other personality types.
- Imaginative and Original – These connections are the product of an unrelenting imagination – INTPs’ ideas may seem counter-intuitive at a glance, and may never even see the light of day, but they will always prove remarkable innovations.
- Open-Minded – INTPs couldn’t make these connections if they thought they knew it all – they are highly receptive to alternate theories, so long as they’re supported by logic and facts. In more subjective matters like social norms and traditions, INTPs are usually fairly liberal, with a “none of my business” sort of attitude – peoples’ ideas are what matter.
- Objective – INTPs’ analysis, creativity and open-mindedness aren’t the tools of some quest for ideology or emotional validation.
- Honest and Straightforward – To know one thing and say another would be terribly disingenuous – INTPs don’t often go around intentionally hurting feelings, but they believe that the truth is the most important factor, and they expect that to be appreciated and reciprocated.
Aimee, our Head of Customer Relations is an INFJ, also called The Advocate personality! The quiz describes her as insightful, inspiring, decisive, and passionate. No wonder Aimee provides such excellent customer service! Read more below.
- Insightful – Seeing through dishonesty and disingenuous motives, INFJs step past manipulation and sales tactics and into a more honest discussion. INFJs see how people and events are connected and are able to use that insight to get to the heart of the matter.
- Inspiring and Convincing – INFJs can even be astonishingly good orators, speaking with warmth and passion, if they are proud of what they are speaking for.
- Decisive – Their creativity, insight, and inspiration are able to have a real impact on the world, as INFJs are able to follow through on their ideas with conviction, willpower, and the planning necessary to see complex projects through to the end.
- Determined and Passionate – When INFJs come to believe that something is important, they pursue that goal with a conviction and energy that can catch even their friends and loved ones off guard.
Our Operations Manager, Jim is an ISTJ, also referred to as The Logistician. His defining characteristics are integrity, practical logic, and tireless dedication. People, like Jim, with the ISTJ personality type, enjoy taking responsibility and take pride in the work they do – when working towards a goal, ISTJs hold back none of their time and energy completing each relevant task with accuracy and patience. This couldn’t be more accurate in Jim’s case! Read more about his strengths below.
- Honest and Direct – Integrity is the heart of the ISTJ personality type. Strong-willed and Dutiful – ISTJs embody that integrity in their actions too, working hard and staying focused on their goals. Patient and determined, people with the ISTJ personality type meet their obligations, period.
- Very Responsible – ISTJs’ word is a promise, and a promise means everything.
- Calm and Practical – None of their promises would mean much if ISTJs lost their tempers and broke down at every sign of hardship – they keep their feet on the ground and make clear rational decisions.
- Create and Enforce Order – The primary goal of any ISTJ is to be effective in what they’ve chosen to do, and they believe that this is accomplished best when everyone involved knows exactly what is going on and why.
Our visual communication designer, Hannah is an INFP, also known as The Mediator. INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. INFP’s are also very creative! Read more below.
- Idealistic – INFPs’ friends and loved ones will come to admire and depend on them for their optimism. Their unshaken belief that all people are inherently good, perhaps simply misunderstood, lends itself to an incredibly resilient attitude in the face of hardship.
- Seek and Value Harmony – People with the INFP personality type have no interest in having power over others and don’t much care for domineering attitudes at all.
- Open-Minded and Flexible – A live-and-let-live attitude comes naturally to INFPs, and they dislike being constrained by rules.
- Very Creative – INFPs combine their intuitive nature with their open-mindedness to allow them to see things from unconventional perspectives.
- Dedicated and Hard-Working – While others focusing on the challenges of the moment may give up when the going gets tough, INFPs have the benefit of their far-reaching vision to help them through.
BumbleBar’s Chief Operating Officer, Glenn, is an ENFP. Glenn and other ENFP’s are true free spirits. They are often the life of the party, but unlike Explorers, they are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Read more about our COO’s personality below.
- Curious – When it comes to new ideas, ENFPs aren’t interested in brooding – they want to go out and experience things, and don’t hesitate to step out of their comfort zones to do so. ENFPs are imaginative and open-minded, seeing all things as part of a big, mysterious puzzle called life.
- Observant – ENFPs believe that there are no irrelevant actions, that every shift in sentiment, every move and every idea is part of something bigger. To satisfy their curiosity, ENFPs try to notice all of these things, and to never miss a moment.
- Energetic and Enthusiastic – As they observe, forming new connections and ideas, ENFPs won’t hold their tongues – they’re excited about their findings, and share them with anyone who’ll listen.
- Excellent Communicators – It’s a good thing that ENFPs have such strong people skills, or they’d never express these ideas. ENFPs enjoy both small talk and deep, meaningful conversations, which are just two sides of the same coin for them, and are adept at steering conversations towards their desired subjects in ways that feel completely natural and unforced.
- Very Popular and Friendly – All this adaptability and spontaneity comes together to form a person who is approachable, interesting and exciting, with a cooperative and altruistic spirit and friendly, empathetic disposition. ENFPs get along with pretty much everyone, and their circles of friends stretch far and wide.
