Know your type

This week I’ve had all of our staff take the Myers Brigg Personality Profile test. It’s amazing how answers a series of questions can pinpoint people’s personalities. These test can be fun, but it is what we do with these test that is important.

As I read the description for the type of personality I am, I was confronted with the things I’m not that good at doing. I realized I must deal with those revelations in one of two ways.

I can say, “That’s not true” and ignore my perceived “weaknesses”.
I can say, “That must not be how I am wired.”

When we try to fight the way God wired us, we will struggle. God wired each of us differently. I’m learning that I don’t need to try to become something I’m not, but rather surround myself with people who can be what I’m not. Just because I’m not wired to do a specific job doesn’t make me weak…it proves that’s not who God made me to be.

Begin to honestly assess yourself. Here’s a link to a free typology test. Begin to embrace the way God made you even if that means seeing how He didn’t make you. Be unique. Know your type.

  1. That is amazing. I took the test and it was exactly right on. The test nailed my personality. It also explained career paths that I have been looking into for a long time, but afraid that maybe I wouldn’t be good at them..Now I know that I am meant to a least give them a try…. Thank you for this test… I am so excited that God made me exactly who I am and I need to be proud of my type!
