I’m always fascinated to hear about different people’s personality types. Finding out more about my own is also interesting. I think that what I love the most is how every single person is different (even within each “bucket,” everyone is still unique)… but that is exactly what makes the world so much fun.
I first took the Myers-Briggs test in high school for a class assignment. I was intrigued, but it wasn’t until college that I really became so interested. I’ve been in classes where groups for projects were lumped together based on personalities. It always made for fun groups. Everyone always had their own strengths. Additionally, we learned to actually value what we each brought to the table. The only way to survive the semester was to be strategic and make sure we were each set up for personal success within the group.
I’ve talked with people before and some don’t like the test because they get different results based on whatever situations they happen to be in when they take it. For me, however, I get the same results no matter what. For better or for worse, I am pigeonholed in this one personality type.
We had this discussion about personality types at work one day and then we all got a little obsessive over it. It was crazy how accurate everyone’s type was!!! Everyone was convinced that their personality type was the best one. That night, someone sent around this link and we all got a kick out of the “celebrities” that we matched with.
If you’ve taken the test before, let me know what type you are! If you haven’t, give it a try and let me know what you think.
