How Knowing your Meyers-Briggs Personality Type Can Help you In College

How Knowing your Meyers-Briggs Personality Type Can Help you In College
Some people live and die by Meyers-Briggs (MBTI), but personally, I just find it to be interesting. I also find it to be fairly accurate. Though you can write it off as just another slightly more scientific personality quiz, you can also use it to improve your habits in college. My type is an ESTJ and I find that it fits me very well. I’ve also taken this test so many times to the point where I can recite some of the questions and to the point where I’m fairly certain ESTJ is, in fact, my type.

I’m not a scientist or an expert by any means, but I’ve looked into the Meyers-Briggs personality types quite a bit and I’ve applied it to college. If you’re looking for some super deep insights and historical background on the test, this isn’t the place. But if you want to apply your type to college, you’re in the right spot.

Here are some ways knowing your Meyers-Briggs type can help you in college. Here’s the 16 Personalities MBTI test if you’ve never taken it!

Paige’s Personality Posts: Ennegram Personality New 9 Types

I am obsessed with personality tests. Or just quizzes or personality things in general. Those quizzes from those J-14 and Tiger Beat magazines that asked, “What’s your summer fragrance personality?”or “Which celeb is your perfect date?” were the bomb. I used to literally collect those quizzes.

I have decided to share my fascination with these quizzes on this here blog–doesn’y everyone love a good quiz and diagnostic of themselves?

The personality test I chose for this post is the Ennegram Personality New 9 Types personality test, which you can take here. Basically, your results show you how many points you score in each of these categories:

So, you answer a few questions and BOOM you get your results. Wanna see mine? They’re a bit frightening:

I am very clearly a Type 8: The Leader and really not a Type 2: The Helper or Type 9: The Peacemaker. Oops. I’m a bit of the Motivator and the Artist, which I totally agree with. I wonder how accurate this is. I think I’m a bit of a leader but I like to think I’m not  negative peacemaker and helper.

What were your results?
