Who am I in 50 words
By title, a 24-year-old product manager and author presently. In the past, a student consultant, researcher, academic gold medalist, & founder of a social organization.
By nature, a curious girl with simple needs, an imaginative mind, and a playful heart who likes memorizing quotes, singing in solidarity, & dancing while brushing.
My personality type: ISFJ-A
I (54%), S (53%), F (74%), J (72%), A (56%)
The A refers to Assertive Defender.
Don’t let those five letters fool you though. I can be extroverted, logical, intuitive, or spontaneous. It’s a spectrum. It always is. For both you and me.
I feel emotions deeply–both good and bad. I don’t open up to people quickly. I respect people for their traits and habits. I like to be friends with all; but if someone proves to be a negative influence, I will be indifferent to their existence.
