I saw this tag on Puput @ Sparkling Letters‘ blog last week and knew I had to do it because it seemed like so much fun and then I happened to be tagged by Michelle @ Book Adventures a little bit after that. So, here it is! Thanks so much Michelle for the tag! And be sure to check out both Puput’s and Michelle’s blogs and posts for this because they’re both amazing. ♥
What is the meaning of my name?
I’m going to do my first and middle name for this, Melissa Erin.
My first name is Greek and means bee or honey bee. Whenever I was old enough to be interested in my name’s origin I found out that it’s derived from Greek mythology and was the name of the nymph who cared for a young Zeus. There’s this whole myth involving honey and bees that I won’t go into but I love the origin of my first name.
My middle name is the anglicized form of a Gaelic name which, when I’ve searched the meaning, means peace but also is known as the poetic name for Ireland.
When I was little I actually remember not liking my name for some reason. I think it was because I met so many people with the same first name and it bothered me. Little me was weird that way 😂. But now I love it and think it was a pretty on point name for my parents to give me considering I grew up to be extremely interested in Greek mythology.
What is my Myer-Briggs personality type? (Link)
I took this such a long time ago but couldn’t remember my result beyond it confirming how much of an introvert I am. So, I took it again and got INFP-T also known as The Mediator.
- 88% Introverted
- 96% Intuitive
- 78% Feeling
- 60% Prospecting
- 58% Turbulent
“Mediator personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, Mediators have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine.”
“Fantasy worlds in particular fascinate Mediators.”
“Mediators often drift into deep thought, enjoying contemplating the hypothetical and the philosophical.”
“Mediators may start to lose touch, withdrawing into “hermit mode”.”
It’s actually scary how accurately it describes me. Especially the “hermit mode” comment because I do tend to drift away from everything from time to time. Although, I think that comes with being an introvert. Apparently, I’m very passionate, optimistic, open-minded, seek harmony, and thrive off of creativity but tend to be on the reserved side. And apparently I tend to see myself as selfish when I can’t help someone as much as I want to, which I’ve found to be true. Some famous INFP-T‘s are William Shakespeare and J.R.R. Tolkien.
What is my Zodiac Sign?
I’m a Scorpio but to be honest I don’t much care for the whole zodiac thing anymore. There are a lot of preconceived notions about Scorpios and I could never relate to half the stuff I read about them. 😂
What is my Hogwarts House? (Link)
I’m definitely a Ravenclaw! Aside from this, I’ve taken the Pottermore quiz twice and before that I always said that was my house. 💙💙💙
What are my Learning Styles? (Link)
I have a read/write learning preference which I already knew before taking this, I learn best when I read notes or rewrite notes. I’ve also learned while being in school that I’m an auditory and kinesthetic learner as well because I tend to process information even better when I’m moving around and reciting it back to myself in addition to reading or writing it.
Am I Right or Left Brain Dominant? (Link)
I am 62% right brained! I remember taking a similar quiz to this years ago and getting left brained but right brained definitely fits me.
What is my Blood Type?
My blood type is O Negative!
What Career Am I Meant To Have? (Link)
I got Writer for my result and I’m not even surprised. 🙈
“You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories.”
Which Divergent Faction Do I Belong In? (Link)
I took the official quiz they had a while back and remember that I got Divergent with a high percentage of Erudite and Dauntless. I always said that I would end up being a transfer. But I’ll still take this because I’m curious. 😂
I got Erudite! Although, I still firmly believe I would end up transferring to Dauntless.
What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)
I’m the first born in my family with three little sisters. I’ve always read that firstborns are natural leaders but I’ve never found that to be true for me. I’m definitely the responsible and ambitious one though. 😂
And anyone else who wants to do this! 😁
