How a five-minute personality test can revolutionize the way you practice self-care
“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.”
Have you ever wondered how your personality type differs from your best friend? What about your enemy or someone you can’t get along with at work? On the path of self-discovery and learning more about what it means for myself to be truly happy & successful in life, I thought taking a personality quiz about the way I think and interact with others would be important. The test took no time and when I got my results and read through my type, I instantly wanted to see my strength&weaknesses section. Mostly because I had to know what my weaknesses were and how to avoid anyone every knowing them. I laughed out loud when I read that my personality type, the ‘defender’ doesn’t take criticism well and tends to be a perfectionist to avoid said criticism (welcome to the last 23 years of my life). But then, it dawned on me! Instead of beating myself up over things I do wrong or beating others to the punch of finding what I’m bad at, or cannot change, why not adapt and prepare myself and those around me to
know accept those weaknesses. Why do weaknesses have to be a bad thing? They show individualism and most importantly, that you’re human. How boring would life be if you never made a mistake? Also, how much harder would it be to cope when you finally did make a mistake.This 5 minute test completely changed my outlook on how others view me and that what really matters is how you view yourself.
Self-discovery is such an important (and fun) part of life. It’s also confusing, scary, and irritating. But if you are ready & interested in learning more about your personality, your strength & weaknesses, relationships dynamics, career habits, and parenting strategies (now or someday), I highly recommend you take the 16 personalities test! It only takes a few minutes and gives an awesome detailed evaluation of what makes you who you are and why it’s a great, positive, individualist thing! They also put all the types into real world contexts and show you other influential people in the world with the same type.
