I just took a Jung personality test over at similarminds.com. The result was uncannily accurate:
ENFP - "Journalist". Uncanny sense of the motivations of others. Life is an exciting drama. 8.1% of total population.

Hmmmm... after doing a quick google search I found out that ENFP's are sometimes called "Inspirers" & "Visionaries". This is getting better and better!
"ENFPs are initiators of change, keenly perceptive of possibilities. They energize and stimulate others through their contagious enthusiasm. They prefer the start-up phase of a project or relationship, and are tireless in the pursuit of new-found interests. ENFPs are able to anticipate the needs of others and to offer them needed help and appreciation. They bring zest, joy, liveliness, and fun to all aspects of their lives. They are at their best in situations that are fluid and changing, and that allow them to express their creativity and use their charisma. They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails to fulfill their expectations. They are easily frustrated if a project requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail."
I definitely feel after reading more in-depth at the personality page that this is exactly like me. I have always been a person who is constantly thinking of new and exciting things that I want to do. I have never really thought that I couldn't do anything that I wanted to do. I teach myself how to do things all the time (from making jewelry to driving a stick shift) because I honestly don't understand the words "can't" or "no". To me those words sound like a challenge.
The downfalls of being an ENFP are that I usually have a hard time following through (to true) but I will often put something down and come back to it months & years later.
Now on with the show...
