16 Personalities

Do you ever wonder if people really get you? Understanding is one of the most important things I hope to receive from others in my everyday interactions and relationships. But it seems as though understanding one another doesn’t always come as naturally as one would hope. Each and every person differentiates from one another and although we may find similarities, there are always some differences to go along with them. Allowing certain situations, social interactions and conversations to often get more complicated than anticipated.

I consider myself to be an awfully complicated person. I feel like there are so many aspects to my personality, making it almost impossible to place me into a defined category. But this all changed once I took the 16 Personalities Test. I have never felt so well defined by anything in my life. This test drew up a better description of myself than I ever could have written on my own. I’m seriously considering attaching my results to my resume, printing out copies for my friends and family and even allowing new people that come into my life read it as a fair “warning”.

I strive for people to understand me as well as this test has. I truly believe that by creating common grounds for understanding, we encourage our relationships to align more naturally with our personalities. And by doing so, we allow our bonds with others to grow stronger.

There were only a few instances where I consider this test to be slightly off because I don’t necessarily avoid confrontation. I most definitely don’t enjoy it, but when I think something needs to be said, squashed or discussed, I am the first to try working through it. And the sooner it’s over the better. But for the most part, it perfectly placed me in the box titled “Protagonist”.

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.

As humans, our different experiences, perspectives and personalities cause us to absorb and interact with the world around us quite uniquely. And these many dynamic aspects of ourselves can come in a variety of levels based on our exposure to different elements. So although I resonated with the results of this “test”, I also believe that there is always room for error. My results were very spot on to how I view myself but I do not feel as though they cover my essence entirely. No one can really be summed up in one word, but one word can cover a lot of ground.
