let’s talk personality: judging VS prospecting

Hello! I hope you’re doing well. 💛 This is the day we finish up the Let’s Talk Personality series! 😄 If you’ve missed these posts, I’ve written a four-part personality series in which I’ve learned more about myself! Anyone who wants to join in is invited to answer the personality prompts in the comments, and it has been really interesting and fun to get to know everyone better.

Are you ready for the final installment + series finaleeee? Let’s go!

judging VS prospecting

How do you approach your day?

Do you plan it out, consider future commitments, and make sure everything from the day before has been tended to? You’re a Judging type!

Do you take it all as it comes, jump on opportunities that present themselves, and put things off in favor of better options to come along? You’re a Prospecting type!

If you’ve noticed my blogging habits, I’m a Judging type with a Prospecting complex! 😂 I absolutely loooove all the tedious, careful planning and outlining that goes into running a blog. Despite this, I’ll also find myself moving stuff around and considering all the options quite routinely, which results in shifting schedules that are unsatisfying. I’m learning 💪 hehe

Let’s SEE what the prompts have to say on this topic!

judging VS prospecting:
the prompts + my answers

#1: Judging types love orderliness, and Prospecting types prefer spontaneity

Is it possible to love having everything organized, and then within that organization, have variation? 😂 I love to do the same things differently. Orderliness is awesome! And so is a dash of spontaneity. (I just learned how to spell that word, btw) Judging: check!

#2: Prospectors want things open-ended; Judging types want things settled

it’s not September yet, but that’s ok 😂

Every night before going to bed, I absolutely must confirm that all is well in my world. If there was any pending argument or negative conversation occurring between me and someone else, I’ll help us along in coming to a conclusion so that I may sleep in peace. 😂 (Usually, that means seeing I was overreacting and I’ll apologize. heh)

There are things in my life that must be open-ended, so if at all possible, I settle everything within my power! I like for things to be resolved, peaceful, and balanced, not questionable. Judging: check!

#3: Prospecting types juggle tasks, while Judging types enjoy meeting deadlines

Far too often, I’ll find myself juggling many tasks in an orderly way! But this always results in burnout, and after a productive season has that kind of finale, I’ll spend days or weeks reevaluating my commitments. The objective is to discover how I can enjoy daily productivity without a rough ending 😂 Accommodating my Judging type personality should do the trick! Judging: check!

#4: Judging types work then play, and Prospectors play while they work

This is such a legit description of both types, my goodness 🤣 I must work, then I can play! I do try to have fun with my work (i.e. singing or listening to music while washing the dishes), but overall, my work must be finished before I can have fun. Judging: check!

#5: Prospecting types keep options open; Judging types follow schedules

Schedules!!! One of my favorite words 😍 haha it brings such happy, fun times to mind. Life has a way of following its own schedule, though, so while I love making my own routines, I remain as open-minded as I can on following through with them. Flexibility is important! Judging: check!

my score: judging 5, prospecting 0

This was a really fun one to write! The Judging qualities just really matched me so well 😂 One of the articles I was reading said the Judging/Prospecting type is usually the easiest for people to determine which one they are. The other three components of personality is typically a combination of both for most people.

Okay! Are you ready to see what my personality is??

my personality type is…


Looks like my original test results had 3/4 correct! 😂💚 It feels good to know which one I am now!

Thank you sooo much for following along on this blog series with me! I worked really hard on these posts and dedicated a lot of time to creating Let’s Talk Personality. I hope that you enjoyed reading, learning more about me, and understanding your own personality more!

  1. I am strongly a judging type! I love to be organized and focus on one thing at a time.
    This series has been really fun. Thank you for doing it! 🙂

  2. Hmm. i’m not sure what I am. I think a mix of both? When I did the 16 personalities test I got INFP, but I’m not sure I agree with the “P”. You should do the test and see if it is the same as what you determined yourself!

    1. Yeah possibly! I wasn’t set on the INFJ results I got after learning about the differences between intuitive and sensing. I’ll take it again and see if it’s accurate this time! 😄

  3. I wish I was judging….nut sadly I’m not😂 I’m judging in a couple ways, but overall I’m prospective. I wish I was orderly, but I don’t have hardly any time to make an effort to keep things orderly. lol

    1. Aw 😂 there are some really cool perks to prospecting though! It’s way harder for me to roll with what comes up when I have the next three months totally planned out 🤣
      The personality book I read CreativeYou shared how the different types can utilize their strengths and work on their weaknesses! So I’d really recommend that book 😍 it was super helpful.

  4. I loved this series Maggie. I’m definitely a prospecting…
    It’s kind of weird, because seeing the way you blog, I would have thought you were an ESFP? I guess that’s just how sometimes we don’t know others the way they know themselves. But ISFJs are pretty cool. (especially you)

    1. I’m so glad! ❤️
      Ok. It is weird 😂 but according to the personality test thing, I’m an introvert who loves people! I’m totally at ease in crowds, and depending on who I’m with, I’m quite social (especially online and in familiar family settings).
      With my blog, I’ve been posting the prospecting way with the judging personality type. While figuring out my content, I was going with the flow, which was fun but not totally fulfilling. I’m working on making a weekly post template that will help me plan future post series as well as post new posts I come up with! (Wow I said post a lot of times 😂👏)
      I’ll have to write a post on this. There are certainly lot of nuances to personality!

      1. That’s so weird though, because I’ve been posting in the judging way!
        (rigurous schedules, done ahead of time…)
        I think we both need to swap with each other!
        Ooh, yes! I think that would make a nice post.

      2. Haha yes we do! I realized a few months ago that the way I blog isn’t the way I think. 🤣 so I began rearranging…
        Yeah! It’ll be fun to write 💕
