What is your personality type? Have you ever taken a test to find out where you fall in? Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of your personality type is the first step in understanding and loving yourself. To know and love yourself, you need to be aware of what makes you tick.
I recently came across the Myers Briggs Test article and I found it quite informative. The article explained the 16 Myers-Briggs Personality Types in detail and how they operate; their needs and their potential frustrations. I found the article very interesting to read. I could easily spot my personality type, as well as those of my friends and family. For those who were wondering, I fall under the INTJ – The Mastermind Personality.
INTJ – The Mastermind Personality Type
This Mastermind Personality type description is so me. I tick all the boxes. I am super comfortable in stable environments, and that is why I dislike anything that changes my lifestyle or routine, like the moving houses bit like I mentioned in a previous post. Holidays are fun, and are needed but I like to come back to my cosy home after all the fun and excitement.
I thrive in stability and with a flexible routine in place. I also find contentment in a small number of close relationships. You can count the number of close friends I have on 1 palm. I like to keep my circle small and tight to protect my energy and sanity.
Socialising drains me most of the time, which is why I won’t go out of my way to attend events or network in real life. I find them boring and draining half the time. I need alone time regularly to recharge my batteries and think outside of the box.
Most of my close friends and family members fall under the ESFP – The Performer and ESFJ – The Provider. I have a few who fall under my personality type too which is great. Overall, I enjoyed reading about the different personality types, and trying to spot people with the different personalities in my real life.
ESFP – The Performer
ESFJ – The Provider Personality Type

I’m an INFJ – ‘the Advocate’. We are a rare personality type, less than 1% of the total population 🙂
ESFP seems to describe me for sure, though not sure I like being the centre of attention it just somehow ends up that way in some instances.
I think I may be the INFJ. I am pretty much an introvert and do need my alone time to recharge! I would much rather prefer to be alone than to socialize and if I have to socialize its the worst thing in the world for me!
I think we are alike 😊
I did this at work once but whilst it was useful for understanding myself I found it particularly useful understanding others and improving how to approach them in a way that encouraged their skill set and personality type.
I think it’s really important to understand and appreciate how all our minds work differently. Thanks!
Yes it is.
Fun post Stella. I have never thought of this before. I am going to take the test and see where my personality falls :)Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for reading Claire.
I’m INTJ definitely, I love this kind of thing, so interesting! xx
Glad you do Laura xx
Very interesting- I feel my personality can change depending on who I am around – if that makes sens , so I’d class myself as a bit of a mongrel ha! X
I know what you mean. I think it is the same for most of us.
This looks interesting. Off to find out what I am
It is very interesting.
I am definitely the first type! I recognise many qualities of myself in the descriptions
Oh I’m going to have to take a look at this, love taking tests to find things out about me!
I’m 100% hands down an INTJ! This was a very good read!!
Hi, This is Daria. Thank you for sharing this. Have just completed my test, it was fun.
Here is another website with the 16 profiles. I wish that they would NOT have “titles” or names for each of the the Types, because people will want to come out as whatever type has the coolest title, which sounds arbitrary, anyway. But it’s informative.
Will check the website out. Thanks.
