Have you ever taken a personality test? I recently took one through 16personalities when it was recommended in a Facebook group I’m in. If you want to do one, and find out why you react or why you think the way you do then the link is below.
These were my results:
Personality type: The Mediator
Strategy: Confident Individualism
- Introverted – 72%
- Intuitive – 60%
- Feeling – 97%
- Prospecting – 78%
- Assertive – 51%
I’m not surprised by the results but I’m surprised at how some of the traits are interpreted. Apparently, I’m mostly Assertive. This trait underpins all others, showing how confident we are in our ability to make decisions.
“Assertive individuals are self-assured, even-tempered and resistant to stress. They refuse to worry too much and do not push themselves too hard when it comes to achieving goals.”
I always took this personality trait as me being ‘lazy’. Everything always seems to work out for me (call it manifestation, privilege, luck?) and so I’ve never really strived for anything. Is that because I make the right decision in the first place? Or because I trust that intuitively things will work out the way they should?
I am overwhelmingly the Feeling trait which means that I use my feelings rather than thinking to make decisions.
“Those with the Feeling trait, decisions tend to be based on the well-being of others.”
Guilty! Have definitely put people up on a pedestal at the detriment of my own wellbeing.
My Energy trait was Intuitive.
“These individuals are very imaginative, open-minded and curious (insert wiggling eyebrows). They prefer novelty over stability and focus on hidden meanings and future possibilities.”
I think this one goes hand in hand with my Feelings trait and how I make decisions. Do I sense what I should do – and then do it? I’ve definitely made decisions in my life according to my horoscope and even taken on board what a psychic has said.
Side note: I’ve seen a psychic once, after she was recommended by someone I trust. She was so spot on, and I mean SO RIGHT that I’ve never wanted to go again out of fear that she might tell me something I don’t want to hear.
In summary, looks like I’m on my way to a spiritual journey compounded by a personality test and self isolation. Watch out world.
For my spiritual journey I’m thinking about purchasing some Tarot Cards. I’m just deciding whether I can trust myself to not solely base all my decisions based on what they say. Should I have toast for breakfast? Cards say no. I joke, I joke!
I want to pick and choose what parts of spirituality I absorb and not immerse myself in it (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with that) but I want to be me. If I feel like reading the cards, I will. If I don’t, I wont. And it’s almost Dogma to say that its wrong to do it that way.
Again, not to make light of it, but if I want to listen to Dizzee Rascal one minute and then switch to Nessi Gomes and light some incense then I’m going to. I’ll do my spiritual journey my way (there’s that assertive nature coming through, plus it FEELS right).
If you decide to do yours and feel comfortable, share your results with me by sliding into my DM’s.
