What personality type are you? Have you ever done a psychological test to determine it?
I have, and it’s fun to find out more about it. I remember sitting in Psychology class in University, learning about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
It’s one of the instruments you can use to learn more about yourself. Another one is the Jung Type Indicator. These tests are based on the work of legendary psychologists such as Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers.
Well, get this… You can take a personality type test for FREE online that is based on these psychological instruments. Yup. Cool. I know.
One test I found, at a site called CelebrityTypes, is based on the MBTI test. Click the link to try it! At the end of the test, you get a four-letter type code that explains your personality. It’s short too; it only took me a few minutes.
Of course, no test is completely accurate. But the test here is based on the real theories of the famous psychologists, which is fascinating really. I wonder whether a poet could create a test like this one? Okay, so…. There’s more! Cool. I know.
Once you get the four-letter code, click the “in-depth page” on the left-hand side of the CelebrityTypes page and see what celebrities have the same personality type as you. For example, famous ENTPs are Benjamin Franklin and Socrates, while celebrity ISTJs include Dwight D. Eisenhower and Warren Buffet.
Okay so… Yes, I took the test. And (drumroll please):
~I am an ENFJ (E=Extroverted, N=Abstract, F=Feeling, J=Judging)
Other famous ENFJs include (wow!!):
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Nelson Mandela
- John Paul II
- Ronald Reagan
Wowa! I was astounded to learn I shared characteristics with such incredible leaders.
NOW you see why I had to post this ((smiles)). Especially the Nelson Mandela part! I think they need to add a Canadian poet though ((more smiles)).
Seriously though, if you do take the test, let me know what your personality type is. It’s fun to learn about ourselves too!
