We spend so much of our lives trying to figure out who we are, what we like, and what we are good at. I encourage you to take some or all of the tests below to discover more about yourself.

Myers Briggs Personality Test:

The Myers Briggs Personality Test is a simple agree or disagree assessment. There are seven dots, the center is neither agree nor disagree, while the three dots to the left and right are the amount you agree or disagree with the statement. This assessment did not take very long and was simple to understand and complete. The test breaks down 16 personalities into four categories: Analysts, Diplomats, Sentinels, and Explorers.

After taking the assessment, it said that my personality type is “Campaigner.” This personality type is in the “Diplomats” category. According to the test “Campaigners are enthusiastic, creative, and sociable free spirits, who can always find a reason to smile.”

DISC Personality Test:

The DISC Personality Test is an assessment that is a little different. When given four options you must choose the one you agree with most AND the one you agree with least. This assessment was fairly long and somewhat difficult to decide the answer choice that fit me best. After the thirty questions it has around 10 more “questions.” For these you organize a list of 10 things in order of most important to least important to you. This assessment is more work-based, in the sense that it breaks down the kind of employee you are along with the expectations, values, goals and more.

After taking the DISC assessment I was given the disc style: Technician. According to the website, “Technicians will seek projects in their area(s) of expertise. They constantly challenge their own work and results. They are likely knowledgeable in many areas. They are easy to work with unless their expertise is challenged. They are quality oriented and expect strong results from themselves and others. They can become critical of others if they achieve poor results. At times, they can become too insistent on doing things a ‘certain way.’” 

Love Languages:

I’m sure we’ve all heard of the famous 5 love languages and maybe even taken the same test. If not, I encourage you to do so. The Love Language test is a quick thirty question assessment that asks you to choose between two things which are more meaningful to you. The list includes: acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, physical touch, and words of affirmation. 

Afterward it gives you a percentage of each of your five in order from most to least. My results were 37% physical touch, 30% quality time, 23% words of affirmation, 10% acts of service, and 0% receiving gifts.


The High5Test is an assessment of your personal strengths. Personal strengths are important to know, as they teach us things, such as how we can efficiently contribute to a group, get things done in our own time, create a positive work environment, and more. The test consists of 120 statements and a slider. You slide the bar to the left if you disagree and to the right if you agree. The further you move it the stronger you feel about it. The test was quite long, but not very hard. 

After taking the High5Test, the results said my top five strengths were problem solver, brainstormer, coach, strategist, and optimist respectively.


The Enneagram test is a personality test consisting of nine different personality types. The test is also an agree-disagree test with five dots. Your score is shown with a value of each of the nine types. The test wasn’t as long as some of the others but still had a lot of questions.

My results from the Enneagram were strong in three of the eight types: four, three, and eight. According to the website, “fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved, threes are self-assured, attractive, and charming, eights are self-confident, strong, and assertive.”
