INFP: Introverts Unite!
I often prepare to write a book by getting to know my characters better. And what better way to get to know someone, REALLY getting in their head, than by taking a personality test and answering the way they would answer?
When I took the 16 Personalities test online for Jessica, I discovered that she might be an INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving).
1. Introverted (I): Jessica has some social anxiety, prefers private conversations, and needs time to herself to process her emotions and thoughts. She doesn't thrive in large, overstimulating settings.
2. Intuitive (N): She thinks deeply about her situation, considering the future implications of actions (like her concerns about marrying and traveling). She's more focused on abstract ideas and implications than concrete details.
3. Feeling (F): Jessica makes decisions based on her personal values, emotions, and the well-being of those she cares about. Her interactions with James, her friend Catherine, and her concerns about her potential suitors indicate that she is emotionally driven.
4. Perceiving (P): She's not rigid in her approach to life. For instance, she's open to collaborating with James to deter suitors, indicating adaptability and a more go-with-the-flow attitude instead of strict planning.
The INFP personality type, often termed the "Mediator" or "Idealist," is introspective, creative, idealistic, and driven by high values. They seek deep, meaningful connections with others and need time alone to reflect and recharge. Jessica's character traits and behavior in the novel align pretty well with this.
