Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (The test is a basic Meyers-Briggs, 16 basic questions which is believed to be at least 75% accurate. I’ve done the test professionally before & the result was the same.)
I found this test really insightful & helpful when I first did it. I recently did an Enneagram recently & am all ‘self analysed’ out right now. So instead I’m going to leave you with some of the quotes about my ‘type’ that I feel are most accurate, & that I like the best about being the way I am – an ESFJ. (Read more about what that is on wikiwiki.)
*Guardians of birthdays, holidays and celebrations, ESFJs are generous entertainers. They enjoy and joyfully observe traditions and are liberal in giving. (SO true, I love occasions!)
*ESFJs at their best are warm, sympathetic, helpful, cooperative, tactful, down-to-earth, practical, thorough, consistent, organized, enthusiastic, and energetic. They enjoy tradition and security, and will seek stable lives that are rich in contact with friends and family. (Aw, it makes me smile just reading about all this kind helpful goodness.)
*Often exuding warmth and bonhomie the ESFJ has a special gift of invariably making people feel good about themselves. (Everyone loves some bonhomie, right?)
*They value security and stability, and have a strong focus on the details of life. (This may or may not drive my husband crazy.) They see before others do what needs to be done, and do whatever it takes to make sure that it gets done. They enjoy these types of tasks, and are extremely good at them.
I also found something pretty fun, looking at this type again – an example of fictional characters with the same traits as me. I knew more of the fictional characters than the celebs I am proud to say.
Babbitt (Sinclair Lewis)
Hoss Cartwright (Bonanza)
Leonard “Bones” McCoy (Star Trek)
Mrs. Molly Weasley (Harry Potter)
Rabbit (Winnie the Pooh)
I’ll end with this – because it’s good to be able to laugh at yourself:
