16 Personality Types

There are 2 ways to find out your personality type- either take the quiz, or just look at the 16 Personality Types here and see which one you can relate to most.

Mine is actually ISTJ, which is really weird because I took the quiz twice, got INFJ and INFP respectively. The characteristics weren't 100% (or even 80%) relatable, so I checked out other personality types that sounded like me. And ISTJ was the closest.

Now, I would like to clarify that this personality test may not always be what you are, but rather sometimes what you would like to be. Let's say it this way- in the quiz, they will give you scenarios or stuff, then you have to say how much you agree or disagree with this. Sounds okay.

But my mind linked this quiz to (guess what) the Sorting Hat, in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.
Those who are not familiar with this magical, tattered, torn, dirty, yet so important witch hat, it sorts first years into their Houses- Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin. The Hat speaks with a small, quiet voice to the wearer, interprets their thoughts and respond to them. After a moment of consideration, which varies in length (from less than a second to over five minutes), the Hat announces its choice aloud for all to hear, and the student joins the selected house.

For Potterheads, you might somewhat remember somewhere that the Sorting Hat not only takes in what you are, but also what you want to be. Take Neville Longbottom, for example. We can reluctantly admit that he was not very brave, but he admired courage, and eventually he became brave.

So the same goes for this personality quiz, if feel. It is a combination of what you are, what traits you value, and ultimately it's your choice that is the determining factor.
