Yes, we know, staying at home is driving you crazy, if it hasn’t already. You’ve probably exhausted all options of “things to do at home”, but we have more, in the form of five personality quizzes. I’ve personally done 4/5 of the quizzes, and I’ll tell you how accurate I think it is alongside each quiz. I think personality quizzes are great to take not exactly because of how accurate they may or may not be, but also just to maybe figure out how you view things, or how you’d react in certain situations. Without further ado, here are the quizzes!
1) The MBTI Personality Test
There are 16 personality types in under the MBTI test, and yes. Here’s what the MBTI test is. MBTI stands for Myers–Briggs Type Indicator, and it’s basically an introspective self-report questionnaire. All you do is agree or disagree with statements on a scale, and results will tell you your personality in four categories: introversion (I) or extraversion (E), sensing (S) or intuition (N), thinking (T) or feeling (F), judging (J) or perceiving (P). One of the most popular sites for taking a MBTI test is 16personalities.com, which is also where I did mine. I’m an INFJ (Advocate), and I find it highly accurate. If I remember correctly, it can run a bit long, so make sure you’re in a good state of mind and have ample time to go through it.
2) The Enneagram Personality Test
According to truity.com (which is also where I took my Enneagram test), the Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions. There are nine personality types according to the Enneagram, and each personality type has a core belief about how the world works, and that shapes their worldview and perspectives. You can read more about the Enneagram and how it works here, since I’m not an expert. I’m a 1, otherwise known as the perfectionist (not going to argue with that, because ACCURATE), but each type also comes with a wing, and I’m a 1w9. Read more in the link given earlier, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
3) The 5 Love Languages Test
Okay, let’s start things off with learning what the five love languages are in this test: words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service, and receiving gifts. Unlike the previous two quizzes, this one tells you how much you value each “language” in percentages, so I can’t really remember mine, besides that I got the highest percentage in “quality time”. There are also quizzes catering to different relationship statuses, such as couples, singles, military, and teens. My cousin was the one who introduced me to this quiz, and I was absolutely dying of laughter at her results. Her “physical touch” column was at 0%, I kid you not, and I don’t remember the others, but her “acts of service” was really high. Her friends: “So, basically, you want a helper. A kakak.” I died. Take the quiz here.
4) Parenting Style Quiz: What Type of Parent Are You?
This is the only quiz on this list that I didn’t take, because I’m not a parent. According to this quiz (and certain schools of psychology), there are four parenting styles: authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, or neglectful. (I have a vague memory of studying this back in college. Anyway.) Authoritative parents are deemed the most effective type, while the rest, not so much. The point of this quiz is to find out which type you are, and making necessary adjustments so you can be a better parent. Can’t say if this quiz is accurate, because I didn’t take it, but worth a shot! Take the quiz here.
5) What’s Your Travel Personality?
This one’s like, just for fun, because ain’t nobody doing any travelling anytime soon. You can find this quiz on tripzilla.com, and it only consists of 8 questions. I mean, you might already guess at what kind of a person you are when you travel, but it never hurts to confirm. In this case, it’s fun to just pretend like you can plan for a trip. I got “OCD Traveller” on this one, because obviously. Alternatively, you can also take this similar quiz on jessieonajourney.com, but this comes with some recommendations based on your travel personality. It makes for good plans for future travels, though! I got “Slowing Down” on this one instead, which actually fits as well. Not the adventurous type as in jumping off cliffs and stuff.
We hope you get to know yourself a little better with these quizzes! Let us know your MBTI and Enneagram type!
