What Does Your Personality Type Say About You?
Have you ever filled out a personality profile test for work or school? Did it help you understand anything about the way you tick? This one might.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test can typically help you gain some insight.
I have found through the years when I want to improve my self-esteem, set new goals, or re-evaluate current goals, it helps to better understand myself.
I have chosen a variety of methods to better understand my behavior and motivations. I've read about my astrological sign, calculated my life path number, and more recently taken an interest in personality typology, specifically through the Myers-Briggs site, 16personalities.com.
The concept concludes that everyone fits into one of 16 personality types. Those 16 types are then broken down into four categories: analysts, diplomats, sentinels and explorers. Do any of these resonate with you immediately? The test is online, and doesn't take long to take, maybe about 20 minutes.
I have discovered that I fall into the Diplomat category as an ENFJ. The description of this type resonated with me, and this website offers insight into various parts of your life. You can learn how your type relates to others in friendships, romantic relationships, and typical career paths.
Spring is a time of new beginnings, and a great time to take a look inside and discover on a different level who you are. Read about how you think and how you can enhance your strengths, and dispel your weaknesses with the help of personality typology.
So, what's your type? Comment with your type, and how it resonates with you.
Mine says that while I'm tolerant, reliable and a natural leader, I can also be too idealistic, sensitive, and might struggle to make tough decisions. The career path suggests that I should work with people, not systems and numbers - lucky for me, I found radio early!
Another fun website to explore that focuses on the way the brain functions for each personality type is PersonalityHacker.com. This site helps you to understand the cognitive process of your brain, and how to develop the weaker parts of your personality to function at a higher level. They invite you to understand your intuition, and how to use it.
Here is another look at the power of intuition.
