Working from home and social distancing is the perfect time to learn more about YOU.
Self awareness tests are so helpful in helping describe how you learn, how you love, and generally how aware you are of yourself and your actions. During our marriage counseling, CJ & I read The Five Love Languages. After we read a certain portion of the book we each took the test and talked with each other about how we prefer to be loved. These tests and others are ways to be more aware of yourself so you can communicate your needs.
While The Five Love Languages is more interpersonal and intimate there are other tests like Strengthsfinder, Myers Briggs (where are my fellow INFJ’s at?) and many more. The Enneagram test has been popular recently and I have been seeing very intriguing content on what Enneagram number people are on Instagram. I figured, since I am curious, maybe some of you are, too.
Let’s take an Enneagram test together. Click here to take the quiz. This is a free version.
The Enneagram defines nine personality types, each with its own set of strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for personal growth. What type did you get? I am a Type 3-an achiever.
Just like other self awareness and personality tests, categories help describe you to others and help you see yourself and relate to others.
Just a caveat to all personality tests, just because you test one way, one time doesn't mean that a couple years down the road as you become more self aware that you will become a different enneagram, etc. We all grow and change in different ways inwardly and outwardly and that's a beautiful realization.
Instagram lately has been full of beautiful posts describing Enneagram types to traits, personalities, coffee and more. I thought I would post some of my favorites and encourage you to go search your enneagram type in the search bar on Instagram and look at some of these beautiful posts.
(Remember to always give credit to others when using others work).
Let me know what type you are in the comments below! Maybe I will know what your coffee order is or the best way to communicate with you.
I sincerely hope you are all taking care during these crazy times and hope you are staying sane at home.
