When I was younger, I used to love doing tests in magazines. Did you use to do it too?
Well today, we are going to have a bit of fun with 4 quizzes that will help you learn more about yourself.
I really like these tests because they helped me understand some aspects of my unhappiness and a few things I needed to do to change.
1. Personality Test
Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs® personality test? It will tell you what personality type you are.
According to the test, I am ENFP-T! Also called the inspirer or the campaigner. I feel like it totally represents me, seriously I love to inspire people through Hello Peaceful Mind.
But this time, we are going to go a step further than just finding out what is your personality type.
After figuring out who you are, go to this article to find out what stresses you out and how someone can help you with stress.
It’s even better to do it with your close ones. For example, my husband and I both did the test and read the part of the article about each other. This helped us understand how to help each other in times of stress!
So what is your personality type and what will help you relax?
Here are my results:
Personality type: “The Campaigner” (ENFP-T)
Individual traits: Extraverted – 83%, Intuitive – 63%, Feeling – 66%, Prospecting – 54%, Turbulent – 54%.
Strategy: Social Engagement
2. Discover your values
Now, we are going to take a test on Psychology Today to find out what our values are.
A few of you wrote that they wanted to know what their purpose was, and knowing your values is a first step toward discovering your purpose.
It will also help you understand why you are not happy right now and what you need to focus on to be happier.
To do the test, go to this link.
Then, think about what you can change in your life to be more in sync with who you really are.
Here are my values:
· Social Values
· Theoretical Values
· Aesthetic Values
· Realistic Values
· Traditional Values
· Political Values
What are yours?
3. Work Values
Discover what your work values are with this free test.
You will discover what is important for your work life and begin to understand why you are not happy at work and how you can become happier.
For example, according to the test, work-life balance, working conditions and work relationships are really important for me.
Today I realize that work-life balance (or lack thereof) was the biggest trigger of my depression. This is why I had to change my schedule to get more time for myself and my personal projects.
Here are my results:
What about you? What are your work values and how are they influencing your happiness?
4. The Big Five
My soon to be therapist husband told me that the Big Five was the most reliable personality test. So we are going to do it 😀
Here’s what you will discover about yourself:
Part 1: Contents
Part 2: Personality Type
Part 3: Big 5 Overview
Part 4: Neuroticism
Part 5: Extraversion
Part 6: Openness
Part 7: Agreeableness
Part 8: Conscientiousness
According to the test, my personality type is The Overseer (RECGD)
I am passionate and have the tendency to experience anxiety, anger, and depression … yes, that’s me. Every part of the results totally described me.
What about you? What are you?
