This is a cool book tag that I’ve seen floating around recently. Wonder Filled Reads did this tag the other day and I thought why not?
If you would like to do this tag feel free. I’m not going to tag a bunch of people. I will say it is cool to see what your personality type is though.
All pictures in this post were borrowed from the Sixteen Personalities website.
What is your MBTI personality type?
According to Sixteen Personalities, I am an INFP, which is “The Mediator”.
“Mediator personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better.”
What is your personality like?
INFP-T is a diplomat personality type which means I’m good at picking up on peoples moods. It also means that I get really nervous easily when I feel that people don’t understand what I’m saying. According to Sixteen Personalities, Mediator’s are gifted with solid communication. This is true to a point. I often struggle to find the appropriate words to respond to someone and that’s simply because I want what I saw to be succinct and accurate.
Also, INFP-T means that I’m a bit of a dreamer and am constantly looking for the good in every situation.
If you were a character in a book, what would be some of you character strengths and flaws?
Strengths: I like to think I’d be pretty good at negotiating. That and giving really good pep talks. I would definitely be in the Court of Dreams.
Flaws: I’m too sensitive. I don’t take criticism well and that can be in issue when something important needs to be addressed. Also, I’m apparently altruistic. So I guess I just care too much about people.
Do any authors share your personality type?
Well, J.R.R. Tolkien and William Shakespeare are just two that share my personality type, which clearly tells you how important I am.
What fictional characters share your personality type?
The only characters I saw on my list that I actually wasn’t miserable with was Bill Weasley and Smeagol. So, there’s that. But I would prefer to be Gollum over Smeagol if I’m being honest.
If you were a character in a book, what job would you have?
Um, well, according to Sixteen Personalities every INFP’s dream at one point or another is to become an author. But honestly, anything focused in the arts would probably be the most realistic for a character in a book.
What personality type would complete your OTP?
Someone who matches my ideals and feelings. The best partner for me would be someone that nor only makes me and him better and happier. The biggest piece to an INFP relationship is our ability to put an effort into being the happiest we can together.
Who are some fictional characters that would complete your OTP?
I’m basing this off of my weaknesses and strengths and honestly I think that Rhys from ACOTAR could be my OTP. He shares my same weaknesses and we both just happen to be dreamers. Alternatively, I think Jest from Heartless would also be a good match for me.
What do you guys think? Would your personality match up with mine?
