So you think you know yourself, eh?
You don't REALLY know yourself until you dive into the 16personalities test. Seriously, it is like staring into a 3D mirror of yourself. It's wild.
The personality test itself doesn't take too long, I would give yourself about thirty minutes so that you aren't rushing through the questions. It is also important not to sit and think on one question for too long.
Now, why do you need to take this personality test? You know yourself, right? Maybe... but trust, this is highly researched information, and insanely cool.
This test takes a new approach to the Myers-Briggs theory, which is the use of acronyms to specify personality traits.
"With our model, we’ve combined the best of both worlds. We use the acronym format introduced by Myers-Briggs for its simplicity and convenience, with an extra letter to accommodate five rather than four scales. However, unlike Myers-Briggs or other theories based on the Jungian model, we have not incorporated Jungian concepts such as cognitive functions, or their prioritization. Jungian concepts are very difficult to measure and validate scientifically, so we’ve instead chosen to rework and rebalance the dimensions of personality called the Big Five personality traits, a model that dominates modern psychological and social research. Our personality types are based on five independent spectrums, with all letters in the type code (e.g. INFJ-A) referring to one of the two sides of the corresponding spectrum."
I took this test before I started my own business, and actually got the same results as when I was required to take it in college for a business class. I am not sure why I didn't take it seriously back then, probably because it was a required assignment rather than for my own personal interests.
*sigh, college kids, ugh*
My personality type, INTJ-T, literally says "DOES NOT WORK WELL AT A CUBICLE"... okay maybe not exactly, but pretty much!
I - Introverted (59%)
N - Intuitive (71%)
T - Thinking (58%)
J - Judging (55%)
T - Turbulent (53%)
Basically, I am a complicated individual, carved out specifically for creative entrepreneurism, and I make up 0.8% of the population.
