A couple years ago I took the MBTI test and then I forgot about it. I didn’t really care and I had to take it for a school project. But a while ago I took the same test again and I am so happy that I did. In this blog, post I will give you a couple of reasons why you should take the MBTI personality test.
If you are wondering what my personality is: I am an INFP. Yes I am an introvert and I will write about this personality later on my blog. Otherwise, this blogpost would be way too long. But I remember the first time I took this test and I received my results. I just clicked away after I saw my personality was INFP. So I had absolutely no idea what this meant.
Then I took the same test again and ofcourse I got the same result again, but after I got my result I did some research. On the same website, you can find a lot of information about your personality. And doing that research was one of my best desiscions ever. I’ve learned so much about myself.
Reasons why you should take the MBTI personality test
It has learned me so much about myself
How can you expect people to understand you, when you don’t even know yourself that well. Why do you behave the way you do? I got my answers when I did the research.
Learn your strengths and weaknesses
If you know your strengths, you could use that to do your work better. Or even when you are looking for a job. I didn’t find anything that I couldn’t relate to. Everything they wrote was me, including my strengths and weaknesses. This will help you a lot. No personality is the best, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.
Relationships and friendships
Why am I hopeless romantic? I never knew. I also thought that I was the only one, but apparently, I am not. Your personality result will show you if you are easy to get or that you don’t like to date a lot. That you believe in love at first sight. And no, there is absolutely wrong with both. Both have their pros and cons.
Do you have a lot of friends? Some personalities have a lot of friends, because they make new friends easily. If you are like me you only have a couple really good friends and you want to have deep converstations instead of partying all night long with friends. What are you looking for in a relationship and friendship?
I think this was the most interesting part of the results. I have always wanted to have my own business. But why? I don’t know anyone who has their own business. So no one has influenced me. I had no idea what it would be like to be your own boss. I have always prefered to work for myself than working for a boss.
Apparently, this is also a part of my personality. Another thing I found out was that INFP’s are good writers and wants to write their own books. INFP’s are very creative. Yup, that is me. Not saying my writing skills (in the English language) are the best. But at least I am improving every single day. Learning new English words. But yes, I really want to write (books. That is why I have my own blog. People with INFP personality are better at expressing their emotions/feelings on paper.
And why do I want to write about meaningfull stuff? I could write about more ‘superficial’ things and earn money with it. There is nothing wrong with that, but it just not what makes me happy. I prefer writing about life and helping other people.
Take the test
If you want to take this personality test, which I recommend. You can take the test here. The test is based on C. Jung and I Briggs Myers theory. Don’t worry it won’t take ages to finish the test. It takes about 12 minutes and it is free. And be sure to try not to leave any ‘neutral’ answers and answer it honestly. Even when you don’t like the answer.
Let me know what your personality is. Are you also an INFP?
