Found a bunch of personality tests.

wwell, the reasons for why I took those tests were homestuck related, taking tests to find out what my aspect and land would be, hah!, but they were interesting so I thought I'd share.

Mind you, most of them were time consuming.

Not like I timed it, the only records I have are from when I said I was going to take the test, and then after I finished the first ones - and that took me longer than an hour.

So here's one to find out about your Eclectic Energies Enneagram.

I've heard about eclectic energies before, but "heard about" was about it.

My results showed I'm a type 2, the Helper, with balanced wings (12.2 in type 1, the Reformer, and 12.0 in type 3, the Achiever). The description fits to a tee, especially since I started out on my quest on being the light worker I am, haha.

Should I post the whole thing y/n?


Enneagram Type 2 - The Helper

Helpers who need to be needed

People of this personality type essentially feel that they are worthy insofar as they are helpful to others. Love is their highest ideal. Selflessness is their duty. Giving to others is their reason for being. Involved, socially aware, usually extroverted, Twos are the type of people who remember everyone's birthday and who go the extra mile to help out a co-worker, spouse or friend in need.

Twos are warm, emotional people who care a great deal about their personal relationships, devote an enormous amount of energy to them, and who expect to be appreciated for their efforts. They are practical people who thrive in the helping professions and who know how to make a home comfortable and inviting. Helping others makes Twos feel good about themselves; being needed makes them feel important; being selfless, makes Twos feel virtuous. Much of a Two's self-image revolves around these issues, and any threat to that self-image is scarcely tolerated. Twos are thoroughly convinced of their selflessness, and it is true that they are frequently genuinely helpful and concerned about others. It is equally true, however, that Twos require appreciation; they need to be needed. Their love is not entirely without ulterior motive.

Twos often develop a sense of entitlement when it comes to the people closest to them. Because they have extended themselves for others, they begin to feel that gratitude is owed to them. They can become intrusive and demanding if their often unacknowledged emotional needs go unmet. They can be bossy and manipulative, feeling entirely justified in being so, because they "have earned the right" and their intentions are good. The darkest side of the type Two fixation appears when the Two begins to feel that they will never receive the love they deserve for all of their efforts. Under such circumstances, they can become hysterical, irrational and even abusive.

Because Twos are generally helping others meet their needs, they can forget to take care of their own. This can lead to physical burnout, emotional exhaustion and emotional volatility. Twos need to learn that they can only be of true service to others if they are healthy, balanced and centered in themselves. [...]

I was going to highlight what I think is especially fitting, but then I realized that if I did, the above paragraphs would have looked like a toddler's colouring book, so I omitted that.
All of it, a big mOtHeRfUcKiN YeS.
I can only repeat myself, but mmh am I glad I've met with the dark sides pretty early in my life. Sort of.

I haven't read about my wings in depth yet, seeing to that it is late and why am I still up BUT YEAH. Moving on.

There's another enneagram test on the same site with some additional information.

Another test was, shorter, the 16 factors of Cattell. It will show you how many % you get for sixteen aspects of personality.
Interesting, but doesn't give you much insight. Of course, you could always research on the Cattell test itself if you feel like you should.

The third test I took was again pretty interesting and in depth, called the Personal DNA. It was pretty colourful and innovative, and the result was detailed. I enjoyed taking the test.

My result was that I'm a generous Idealist. More details about the result here.

The fourth and last one that I did, feeling the accumulated sluggishness of my brain take the wheel bit by bit, was one that I think I might have done before. It's the Jung/Briggs Myer's typology test.

I am an ISFJ, an Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging type, but as of right now, I'm a very tired introverted sensing feeling judging type, so I'll have to adjourn reading on that.

Pretty unspectacular entry in itself, but in case you intend to do the tests TAKE YOUR MOTHERGRUBFUCKING TIME ASSHATS. ... [mmh I've come two the poiint where typiing certaiin thiing2 iinadvertantly triigger quiirk2. iim not 2orry. no one evven gets the joke. apart from future me. HoNk.]


OKAY yes it's gotten late and I'm starting two do thiing2.



Good night.

... Because you are perfectly aware of how cats' minds are working, my precious friend.

May I add, *dangerously polite.

They might also say something about how their bowl of nourishment is empty, and their purr apparatus won't work without it being refilled. Ohoh.

They might also wonder about the lack of mice running around and suggest we do something to rectify it or calmly remind us that there is a catnip shortage and that they may resort to unpleasant measures if the shortage is not addressed in some way.

Ah, cats, they're such fine bargainers.
