These two are near and dear to my heart. One is a personality test, and the other is to determine your love language. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but these aren’t games at all–just quizzes. Games sounded funner didn’t it. If you want to do my favorite game, check out Web Sudoku here. Otherwise, here’s just one more quiz for you. This one will tell you a lot about you, but it helps even more to appreciate others. It is based on the Myers-Briggs personality inventory. Here are my results.
You Are An INFJ
The ProtectorYou live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.
Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision – no matter what it is.
You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.
You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.
In love, you truly see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow.
You enjoy relationships as long as they are improving and changing. You can’t stand stagnation.
At work, you stay motivated and happy… as long as you are working toward a dream you support.
You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.
How you see yourself: Hardworking, ethical, and helpful
When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable
The other short quiz you can do today that actually changed how I view people and respond in love to them is from the book by Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages. For a quick grasp of what love language you are, click here. Then, more importantly, assess each of your family members what language they respond to best. It was after reading this book that I changed how I showed my family I loved them. I also didn’t get as angry when one of them didn’t line up to what I expected of them. I learned when my youngest asked me to get her a drink as she was standing by the refrigerator, she was asking for “acts of service” which was her love language. Now, I’m not saying I got her the drink of water every time, but I started looking at her requests differently. It truly was one of the top three books that changed my parenting and my relational skills with others. Until then I had been responding to my loved ones in the way I needed to be loved, and it was quite different from what they needed. Learning and responding to others’ love languages was perhaps one of the best gifts I could give them. So jump over and take this quiz and tell me what your love language is, and if you have time, do the personality inventory or play some Sudoku–all in the name of good Olympic fun! Oh, and my love language is “words of affirmation” so leave me some love!
Hmm. It said ISFJ, or nurturer, but I don’t see myself that way. I know that my love language is words. I do like to apply these to my family to learn how to love them better, but the older they get they more difficult it is to know what’s going on with them internally.
The first test said that I was one who nutured. I knew the Love language or so I thought…actually acts of service from my husband and words of affirmation from my adult children are my two love languages. I do acts of service a lot and I also try to give words of affirmation. So, I guess I have two love languages. The persoanality test described me pretty well….didn’t like the negative aspects, but who does. Thanks for posting this.
OK…now I have read the love language section of your post, getting ready to find out my love language…so sista here is some affirmation, you exhibit the heart of Christ in your posts and prayers!
Your crazy friend went to breakfast, came back and did this again and was a caregiver this time! Yay! I have issues… 🙂
I want a new personality, please! Mine told me I am a bad listener. Ouch! You are an excellent listener with almost infinite patience!! Yours is so true. Mine said I would be an excellent judge or police officer. Ouch. It’s easy to compliment you and give you words of affirmation because you are just an amazing person and friend!
I am an ESJF, Caregiver. Must be why I decided to train for Community of Hope all those years ago.
Have a blessed Sabbath.
