So, you’re ready to enter the world of self-discovery that a personality test can lead you to. Whatever type of test you choose, it will help you the most if you take measures to ensure that your results are as authentic as possible.
When it comes to making your testing experience more effective, how you think about, approach, and take the test, as well as how you view your results, can make a difference in your ability to get the most benefit from the experience.
Are you a super Sensor? Does your body thrill with sensations as you move through your environment? Are colors, scents, or sounds the first thing you notice when you walk into a room? Does feeling hungry distract you to the point that you will stop what you’re doing for a snack?
Whether you’ve already got a trip planned or you’re thinking about joining the ranks of others who are making the most of domestic travel in 2022, taking a road trip might be one of the most appealing ways to get out and explore after being cooped up for the last couple of years. Plus, a road trip has plenty to offer without worrying about embarking on an international trip.
It might be easier to relate to, like, and be liked by people with personality traits similar to your own.
But you will need to interact with people of different personality types and traits as well. The experience will likely be more pleasant if you can not only tolerate each other, but figure out ways to enjoy and benefit from each other’s company. Even better if you can help people with different personality types to like you, and find that you like them in turn.
When someone copies the facial expressions, gestures, vocal inflections, opinions, and attitudes of another person during a social interaction, this is known as mirroring. The point of mirroring is to make a positive impression on the other person, to encourage the development of a friendship or promote feelings of goodwill.
There’s something about the nearly-neon green of new leaves and the cheerful pink of tulip blooms that makes me want to add a bit of springlike cheer to my home environment. Out of this is born my yearly tradition of spring cleaning. Whether you look forward to spring cleaning like I do or moan at the thought of one more thing to do, learning to approach it with your Enneagram type in mind can help you better enjoy the process and the fruits of your labor.
