I started reading this book for my book club and now I'm obsessed with everything to do with introverts and extroverts. (I lean more to the introverted side for several reasons, one being that I feel the most refreshed when I have quiet time to myself.) Then this past weekend, Tom told me about this personality test. I'm so fascinated by the results and the 16 personality types. I got my mom and sister to take the test, and I had to share it with you, too!
Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, this quiz can give you insight into why you see the world the way you do, how you process information, and how you make decisions.
I got The Advocate ("quiet and mystical, yet very inspiring and a tireless idealist") and Tom got the The Architect ("imaginative and a strategic thinker, with a plan for everything"). Don't worry if your first result isn't quite you—Tom had to take it a few times—it's not so much about finding the perfect fit as it is finding something really close. Plus, you'll find out which amazing personalities, characters, and famous people throughout history got the same results as you. (As an Advocate, I'm in good company with Martin Luther King, Jr., Alanis Morissette, and Aragorn from Lord of the Rings, ha!)
You can take the test here. (It's also a cool thing to do to get everyone talking at a holiday party.) Comment below and share what personality you are—and what famous peeps you're matched up with!
