Quiz: What’s Your Personality Type?

When people ask me how I started Blogthings, I’m not really sure how far back I should go. Should I tell them that I noticed people posting quizzes on sites like LiveJournal and that I thought it would be fun to create some? Should I tell them about how I started building web sites as a teenager, and I always knew I wanted to publish content on the internet for the whole world to enjoy? Or should I tell them about how I started taking personality quizzes during middle school in magazines, and how I was hooked once I took my first serious one?

Well, in any case, you pretty much got the whole story right there. I’ve loved making web sites for a long time, and I’ve loved quizzes for even longer. I originally first started taking quizzes in magazines as a tween / young teen. My absolute favorite magazine for quizzes was Sassy magazine, because their quizzes were fun and interesting. Things like “Are you a cynic?” Later on in high school, I was introduced to the MBTI, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and I was hooked.

I wrote What’s Your Personality Type? as my own personal homage to the MBTI. It’s not an official test, but I like to think it’s quite accurate. If you’re looking to do a comprehensive personality inventory today, then What’s Your Personality Type? is the perfect test for you. It’s quite long, but I have a feeling that you will really like your results.

Go ahead and take What’s Your Personality Type? What’s your result? Is it accurate? If you’ve taken the MBTI before, I’d like to know if it matches up to your score. I’m just curious in general to see how the blog readers stack up with this test. Are we all similar or different? I’m guessing most of us are introverts and intuitive… let’s find out :-)

    Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision – no matter what it is.- Bingo!
    You are an excellent listener with almost infinite patience.- For sure, but I’ll admit, I do have my moments.
    You have complex feelings, and you take great care to express them.- Totally, I always say I am like a 3D jigsaw puzzle.

    In love, you see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow.- Mmhmm
    You enjoy relationships when they are improving and changing. You can’t stand stagnation.- I like to think so.

    At work, you stay motivated and happy… as long as you are working toward a dream you support.- For sure, I hate wasting my time.
    You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.- Interesting, seeing how I want to be in the arts and teach it.

    When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable- Not to mention just plain confusing. I’ll admit it too, one of my cons is that I can be manipulative.

    On a side note, I get INFJ all the time, so there’s no doubt. I like the fact that this is the rarest type too hehe.

    Sometimes you idealize relationships too much – and end up being let down.–Guilty.
    You find the most energy and comfort in social situations … where you shine.–Social. interactions tend to energize me.

    In love, you are very protective and supporting.–Yes.
    However, you do need to “feel special” – and it’s quite easy for you to get jealous.–True.

    At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential.
    You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.– I’m not sure if I’m a natural leader at work, but I’m young, so that probably affects my leadership capabilities.

    How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive–I would describe myself as empathetic, creative, and idealistic. But I am trusting and expressive.

    When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud.–Some people say I’m loud. Those people are family and close friends though. My coworkers and classmates think I’m reserved. I think most people who don’t get me think I’m overly analytical, weird, and weak.

    Ummm…. wow. It forgot to mention I am very sensitive and put myself in others shoes frequently. Instead, it called me robotic, though I am the closest girl to SpongeBob I know. I guess I hide my true feelings. Feelings of love and pain. Feelings of fear and cowardly acts. Feelings of courage confidence in the worst of situations. Oh well.

      Awww, it’s definitely challenging to be empathetic, and I don’t think normal people know how much we empaths care. I think it’s a good way to be though, despite how hard it is :-)
