Personality tests

I stumbled upon one of those tests and I like doing those, if you want to know who took every test in the magazine, while waiting at the doctor's, yeah, that was me:), so, it is no surprise that  I couldn't resist. Let's see what my results are: (I like that I am the Explorer-type, according to them) Some of this is definitely me.

(Strength of individual traits: Extraverted: 84%, Observant: 19%, Feeling: 93%, Prospecting: 40%, Turbulent: 11%)

Explorers (ISTPs, ISFPs, ESTPs and ESFPs):
Observant and Prospecting types - they are spontaneous, practical and inventive, able to quickly think on their feet and make best use of their surroundings.

ESFP strengths and weaknesses

ESFP strengths

  • Bold. ESFPs want to experience things, to try everything there is to try. They do not mind going outside their comfort zone or exploring something that others are reluctant to do.
  • Original. ESFP personalities like to experiment and enjoy standing out in the crowd. They do not really care about traditions or what other people expect them to do.
  • Excellent people skills. ESFPs tend to be very witty and talkative—they would never run out of things to discuss. They also strongly dislike being alone and enjoy communicating with other people whenever possible.
  • Great sense of aesthetics and beauty. ESFPs are very artistic, especially when it comes to entertaining other people; this personality type is unmatched in this area.
  • Practical. ESFPs are interested only in practical matters. They dislike theoretical or philosophical discussions, seeing them as a waste of their time.
  • Very observant. ESFP personalities live in the present moment and focus exclusively on what is happening “here and now.” They find it easy to notice real, tangible things and changes.

ESFP weaknesses

  • Find it difficult to focus. ESFPs get bored very quickly and want to stay entertained and excited for as long as possible, regardless of the situation. Not surprisingly, they are likely to find it difficult to deal with tasks that require patience, focus, and dedication.
  • Very sensitive. People with this personality type are extremely expressive and emotional, making no efforts to conceal their feelings. They are likely to react very emotionally in the face of criticism or if they are pushed into a corner and are unable to make a decision.
  • Poor planners. ESFPs rarely think about the future and are more concerned about the present moment, refusing to worry about the next steps or potential consequences.
  • Always seek excitement. ESFPs take risks and are often self-indulgent, putting the pleasures of the present above stability or long-term plans.
  • Have difficulties in the academic environment. ESFPs see school as a waste of time. They are far more interested in creative, practical things as well as socializing. People with this personality type are likely to find it difficult to stick to schedules and put in enough effort to succeed in the academic environment.
  • Loathe conflicts. ESFP personalities do everything they can to ignore potential conflicts, often pretending to be interested or concerned, but then going on to do something they see as fun.


My conclusion: Some of this is definitely true, especially the academic environment weakness had a major influence on me in the past. Poor planner? Yes, true, I am afraid. Sensitive? Yes, true. Seek excitement? Well, yes true, lol, but I am bored quickly :) and need the new challenge.

But I sort of disagree with the last one: Loathe conflicts, yes, a wee bit true, but I have actually learned to solve problems and if I cannot, I ask for help! Usually I am always out for harmony, but I don't avoid conflict at all cost, because it never worked for me.

You know what I love most about this test? That it put me and the bold-quality together. I really love that. Ha, this makes me a braveheart! But this is probably another kind of bold. Not like brave. :(

The 'very observant' strength is only half true with me, because I might notice subtle changes in people and things, but I am an absolute dork when it comes to seeing what people are really like.

According to the list of famous people of this type, I should be an actress. Lol, I have done that at school, but never made it to broadway. :) Probably because I lost focus. :)

I think, you'll likely find something from every given personality trait in you, though I admit much of what the test revealed fits all too well. ... I am doomed! 

Well, no, not doomed. The parenting  section of the test told me that I will be good at caring for my baby's needs. Oh, I love that test. I did not read on after the baby care line. Lost focus again. :)

Have a nice weekend, everybody. I'll go out of my comfort zone and do something exciting, lol, like walking through the woods with hubby :) . Actually I do like experiencing new things, wow, the test is better than I thought at first. But completely contrary to the test-idea, I cling to the structure that hubby and I have. This is a real need of mine.


  1. Hi Nina, I just recently did this test. Can't remember my full personality type according to this, except I am a definite introvert. Hope you have a wondrr weekend :)


  2. Hi Roz, I believe the general idea of this test was actually true, though there are many things where I wouldn't agree completely. And I guess a lot depends on the questions asked or rather not asked, as well. For example I would never have considered myself that extraverted, maybe a little, with friends, in a safe environment. But I enjoyed doing this test. I hope you also have a wonderful and pleasant weekend :)
