On Personality Quizzes: Enneagram

Enjoyed hearing about Personality Quizzes on Gretchen Rubin’s Happier podcast. The quizzes serve as tools for positive self-reflection. So true that they don’t define us, they’re just a small window into certain sides of us.

  • Just took the Enneagram. I scored high in 4 types and all ring true:
    Type 1. Reformer – Perfectionists are realistic, conscientious, and principled. They strive to live up to their high ideals.
  • Type 5. Thinker – Observers have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.
  • Type 7. Enthusiast – Adventurers are energetic, lively, and optimistic. They want to contribute to the world.
  • Type 3. Motivator – Achievers are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.

Consider that researchers widely observe the Five Factor model (“Big Five”), where I score toward Openness to Experience. So more creative and linked to considering roles depending on the situation. That means we use The Final Fantasy V Job System.

I scored lowest in two roles:

  • Type 6. Skeptic – Questioners are responsible, trustworthy, and value loyalty to family, friends, groups, and causes. Their personalities range broadly from reserved and timid to outspoken and confrontative.
  • Type 8. Leader – Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

I’m always more motivated to use the precious time I have when I have less of it. Projects feel like working for a Marvel movie. I love when it's done and I can finally share. Sharing afterwards does motivate me. “I bought a ukulele!”, not “I’m going to buy a ukulele”. Know yourself. Something to try if that resonates with you. Even in the super secret world of Marvel films, there's ... Read more

Hilarious and also thoughtful discussion of doing fake accents! My accent is super fake. I read somewhere that we get our dialect from the people we go to preschool through elementary school. Southern Maryland folks, up here in Baltimore they don't have "Lunchin", "Lunchbox", "Cised", "kirk" and "Bama"?? When I first got here no one would understand anything I said! Like I knew these words as casual, and didn't even know it was slang or local. Source: Judge John Hodgman Episode 295: The Hallowed Y'alls of Justice | Maximum Fun
