What labels fit your personality?

I've written in the past about the kinds of labels that feel pathologizing. But if I'm honest, I'm also obsessed with personality quizzes. Not that I use them to make any important life decisions, but when they feel like they fit, they can be interesting glimpses into the ways in which I behave.

Do you enjoy taking personality quizzes? If so, which ones do you like and how do they reflect your story?

Do you know your Enneagram type?

Personality tests are a dime a dozen and I don't take much stock in them aside from entertainment value. However, sometimes they are pretty darn accurate. I've taken the Enneagram Type test numerous times and I always come out a Type 3-Achiever. Characterized as a "workaholic," type 3's often seek validation for achievement. Their identity is formed around succeeding and productivity. They get anxious when they feel like they are wasting time. Guilty as charged. I can be super driven and also have a tendency toward being envious when someone else is successful at something which I HATE to admit. My constant challenge is to recognize that I can do something just for me without anyone else acknowledging it. And I need to learn to take a break sometimes.

Can you fix an introvert?

Many people, like me, call themselves an introvert. But what does this even mean? Is being an introvert holding you back in life? Is it better to be an extrovert?

In my latest article, I discuss the missing piece that traditional psychometric tests don't provide: that there are very different types of introverts and what exactly drives their behaviour.

This information helps us both appreciating the gifts of being an introvert and managing the drawbacks more effectively.

In the end, there is a spectrum between being an introvert and being an extrovert. Neither is better than the other, and we all can slide a bit back and forwards on this scale.

Being able to do this will help you become more effective in living the life you want.

INFJ's, Enneagram 4's and #Depression

According to the Myers-Briggs typology, I am an INFJ. According to the Enneagram, I am a 4. Sometimes I'm curious if it is even possible to have either of these personality types and not experience depression.

Does anyone else follow personality typologies? Any thoughts on this?
