So, this week I have been obsessed with personality tests. It makes sense considering analyzing is a huge component in the result of almost every test that I’ve taken. But seriously, they’re the best. They creep me out because my results are so similar for every single test.
It helps that mine continuously tell me that I’m “rare” and “unique” and “deeply complex.” What can I say? I’m a wonderful artistic human being. Just kidding, I’m the worst!
At the end of the day, they're probably a bunch of witch bullshit. But I think it's valuable to get a little bit of insight into yourself. It helps me feel a little less crazy and more like, "Oh, there's a reason for all that craziness." Even if it's all made up. Which is another component of my personality, I live in a fantasy world!
Here are the ones I’ve taken:
16personalities.com (I’m INFJ)
Other famous INFJ’s include Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa… so that makes me feel really good about where I’m at in my life.
Strengths: creative, insightful, inspiring and convincing.
Weaknesses: sensitive, extremely private, perfectionist and can burn out easily.
EnneagramTest (I’m Type 4)
“Fours are emotionally complex and highly sensitive. They long to be understood and appreciated for their authentic selves, but easily feel misunderstood and unappreciated. They have a tendency to withdraw in the face of a world that seems harsh or crude, and are often somewhat moody or temperamental. They are emotionally centered and spend much of their lives immersed in their internal mental landscapes, where they feel free to cultivate and analyze their feelings. A desire to manifest this internal world often leads Fours to an interest in the arts, and some do become actual artists. Whether artistic or not, however, most Fours are aesthetically sensitive and concerned with self-expression and self-revelation, whether it be in the clothes they wear or in the overall nature of their often idiosyncratic lifestyles.”
The Color Code (I’m Blue) (I don't have a link because it was a physical test at work)
“Life is a sequence of commitments for blues. They thrive on relationships and willingly sacrifice personal gain. Blues are highly demanding perfectionists. They can be distrusting and worry prone. They are complex and intuitive and can be very opinionated. Blues can also be emotional or moody. Blues can be self-righteous and insecure and can also be very self-disciplined and sincere.
