Who are you? A fun quiz that says nice things about introverts!

personalitySusi pinged me with the results of a personality test she just took, and it was just so much fun I had to pass it along.

Susi came in as a Dreamy Idealist, and I was taken with all the nice things that were said about her type:  introverted, theoretical, emotional, spontaneous, idealistic, dreamy, effusive, pleasant, reserved, friendly, passionate, loyal, perfectionist, helpful, creative, composed, curious, obstinate, with integrity, willing to make sacrifices, romantic, cautious, shy, peace-loving, vulnerable, sensitive, communicative, imaginative.

I came in as “The Harmony-seeking Idealist“, yet another flavor of introvert.  My type is described as:

  • introverted
  • theoretical
  • emotional
  • planning
  • idealistic
  • harmony-seeking
  • understanding
  • peace-loving
  • sensitive
  • quiet
  • sympathetic
  • conscientious
  • dogged
  • complicated
  • inconspicuous
  • warm-hearted
  • complex
  • imaginative
  • inspiring
  • helpful
  • demanding
  • communicative
  • reserved
  • vulnerable

Cee, who has 25 years of experience in putting up with me, said it was spot on.  I’ve bolded the words I feel most in tune with.  People who work with me would probably also highlight helpful, demanding and communicative.  Just guessing on that.  I’ll have to ask Sobha, who does our cooking blog with us, to weigh in on that.

What’s your type?  (Note:  The test appears to be for all types of people, and not just for introverts.)

  1. There is so much interesting stuff you have written, and I havn’t been able to read it all yet! But! I’ve got rid of the flu finally, so now I hope I’ll catch up.

  2. Thank you for sharing, that was fun 🙂

    You might enjoy this other MBTI style of test too – it’s a fun test-game and the site has lots of interesting info as well as cartoons for each type which are funny – http://insightgame.org/game.php

    I’m ‘The Analytical Thinker’… and as one of those I knew which answer to choose to get the result which I got, mainly because this is very similar to other tests I’ve taken online. <— stuff Analytical Thinkers say which makes people think 'they are arrogant or snobby' (a snippet from the results).

    I always end up arguing with these sort of test questions because I relate to both options and there is no in-the-middle choice – which option I adopt depends on the situation and the person I'm with.

    I wonder what results I'd get if someone else took the test for me… like you suggested, others may experience us differently, there must be a test for that somewhere online (I'd probably still get the same result).

    And everything I've said in this comment just proves the answer I got was the right one 😉

    • Oh, good, I’ll have to take that one as soon as I have a quiet moment.
      I know what you mean about the test questions. So many times my answer is not quite what either option is. This time I tried the method of seeing what I most disagreed with and then choosing the opposite. I found I had stronger and more immediate reactions to the things I am not, if that makes sense.

      • That makes perfect sense and is very logical, sometimes it is easier to pinpoint the ‘not me’ than the ‘me’, such as when someone asks what kind of food you would like to eat… so much easier to tell them what kind you don’t want to eat, the options are more precise.

    • I have seen it, Ursula. In fact I am doing a series every Sunday that takes one of Carl’s myths and I write about that. Look at “Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun” and “Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts’.

      • Excellent, thank you!

        I’m probably going to give you another link you know about, but have you checked out this Wp blog: http://lovethyintrovert.com/

        It’s not just about Introverts, she blogs about many other things, she explores the diverse types of Introverts and gives extroverts a guide on how to communicate with introverts, which is very interesting.

  3. I came in as a Reliable Realist – introverted, practical, logical, planning, tradition-conscious, organised, persistent, objective, tidy, conscientious, cautious, loyal, peace-loving, sensible, down-to-earth, responsible-minded, reserved, careful, independent, punctual, precise, demanding, ability to concentrate, trustworthy, pedantic, reliable, persevering – This is pretty right on.

  4. It looks like I am a Sensitive Doer. At first the word “doer” through me off, and I was like, “I don’t think so”, but then I read the description and characteristics and they were surprisingly spot on. (introverted, practical, emotional, spontaneous, sensitive, peace-loving, reserved, gentle, good-natured, independent, empathetic, friendly, playful, carefree, sympathetic, relaxed, quiet, modest, pleasure-loving, loyal, obliging, caring, helpful, optimistic)

  5. At last I found time to take this test. I’m an Independent Thinker!
    At first I was surprised, but after reading what it meant, I must admit this is just spot on for me. 😀
    I intend to blog about it… some day… 😉

  7. I am very new to this blogging universe (about 3 days new), and I am so happy I’ve discovered your page! As a fellow introvert who spends more energy focusing on my inner life rather than external stimuli, it is very nice to be able to connect with some like-minded people. My type was the good-natured realist: introverted, practical, emotional, planning, tradition-conscious, good-natured, self-sacrificing, caring, devoted, friendly, loyal, considerate, reliable, conscientious, loving, quiet, reserved, modest, helpful, objective, hard-working, warm-hearted, communicative, painstaking, altruistic

  8. And if you ever were to wear these separately, everybody
    would see your bra. Duty up with the current pattern trends
    is not as hard as it may seem all it takes is a few tricks
    and a bit of investigate. If you are trying to find little girls clothing stores, there are many options for the fancy boutiques where you will likely pay a lot more than average,
    to the stores that are more well-known and you can probably find good values while still getting quality clothing.
