The Signs are in your favor

I will have to say that writing about myself is the most difficult and gut-wrenching things I have ever had to write. Being an introvert I want to keep things about me very close to the vest. This is why while growing up people would consider me rude for not being as forth coming about themselves as they were. For the most part I didn’t understand the point of being so forth wright. And when there were times that I wanted to disclose, it was like lifting a 500 lbs. block of concrete with only my hands, my words were stuck.

I was trying to understand what made me different from everyone else so I started to research. I eventually stumbled back to something that I never thought much into… horoscopes. I’m not talking about the horoscopes that was in the comic stripe section of the newspaper. I was never interesting in that style of horoscopes. They always felt like the sellout of the horoscope world.

I was interested in the actual definition of each sign. I also started to study the Chinese Zodiac and Numerology. Sadly, the websites that I used have all been shut down however, I was able to find some comparable sources.

Eastern Zodiac

Chinese Zodiac

Numerology

I still think today that these three resources are a great way to find out more about yourself. I even had a webpage that combined all three when you entered in your name and date of birth.

For the last several years I have been taking variations of a personally test. I recently completed one called the Jung Typology test from humanmeterics.com. This test gets to the root of your personality through a series of questions. I have always believed these tests to have an accurate outcome similar to what I used to do when I was younger.

I see this as mystics versus science.

I recently took Myers-Briggs test through HumanMetrics which established my personality type to be ISTJ (Introversion Sensing Thinking Judging).  Introversion describes me as being reflective and quiet. Sensing shows that I attempt to form a big picture and problem solve by collecting facts. Thinking classifies me as being task-oriented, and having an attention to detail. Judging states that I like to have things planned out and I like getting tasks complete before the due date.

    Hey Jason,

    I know I’m late on this but I really enjoyed your post. I agree in regards to the comparable sources that you have listed, are a great way in order to find out a little more about yourself and others as well.

    You know, I never really got into horoscopes. But I did do some digging into my Chinese Zodiac sign for the year of my birth. I think it was the Snake. But I really am a huge fan of Jungian psychology. For some reason, I thought that Jung was out of style, but it is definitely nice to hear otherwise. It was nice to see all of these different factors for personality prediction pulled together, and I love your synopsis, “mystics versus science.”
