9 Personality Types: Which One Are You And What Are Your Merits And Defects ?

9 Personality Types: Which One Are You And What Are Your Merits And Defects ?
The nine personality types, as documented by 9types.com, are a great way to get a stronger sense of what kind of individual you are. To start understanding yourself better, try choosing one sentence that best describes you in the format of “I [your statement.]” This is not a thorough test, but it can provide a quick reference. If you want something more thorough, you can find solid tests to take online at places like here and here. If you’re just sticking with the one sentence approach for now, though, ask yourself which description most closely matches how you described yourself.

1. Reformer: “I do everything the right way.”

Reformers are the people who think that there’s a right and wrong way to do things, and they are absolutely determined to learn the right way. A common goal of reformers is to eat healthy, because they struggle to understand how having a sugary treat is anything but a black mark on their meal plans. That limited awareness can be a problem, but their sense of commitment is certainly advantageous.

2. Helper: “I must help others.”

Helpers are the the segment of the nine types of personality who desperately need to convince themselves that they’re making a positive difference in the world. Their goals include the need to build quality relationships, usually by proving themselves worthy of others’ friendship and companionship. Helpers can be too needy at times, but their generosity should be appreciated and valued.

3. Motivator: “I need to succeed.”

Motivators are the members of the nine types of personalities who are perhaps most likely to be reading articles on Lifehack. For motivators, increasing productivity and efficiency is a primary concern. They might be a little too focused on work, but that drive can lead them to big success in both their professional and personal lives.

4. Romantic: “I am unique.”

Romantics are the ones in the nine types of personalities who believe the most in their power to change the world. They know in their hearts that they have something to offer that no one else does, and are desperate to find their passion so they can do what they consider their life’s work. While maybe a little too idealistic at time, romantics’ ability to believe in something bigger than themselves is certainly worth admiring.

5. Thinker: “I need to understand the world.”

A thinker is eager to figure out how things work. They want to understand the mechanics everything they come across, up to and including their relationships. While they overanalyze things at times, their analysis skills can certainly come in handy.

6. Skeptic: “I am affectionate and skeptical.”

Skeptics are as far removed from romantics as any two groups in the nine types of personalities can be. They want to worry less, but should also remember that skepticism often leads to great discoveries.

7. Enthusiast: “I am happy and open to new things.”

If you’re someone who wants a lot of adventure in your life, you might be an enthusiast. Their tendency to live their lives to the fullest can sometimes mean they’re not concerned enough about their futures, but they also don’t waste time second-guessing themselves.

8. Leader: “I must be strong.”

Like the motivators, leaders are another group in the nine types of personality that’s likely to be reading this article and others on Lifehack. Often businessmen and businesswomen, a goal of many leaders is to build a successful start-up. Sometimes leaders have trouble following orders, but they also tend to influence big changes.

9. Peacemaker: “I am at peace.”

Peacemakers are people who feel very happy with their lives. The downside is they may be too complacent and won’t strive to achieve more, but who wouldn’t like to have that kind of self-assurance? Now that you’ve read about all nine, what personality type best matches your original sentence? Hopefully identifying that will in turn help you understand yourself a little more.

50+ Best Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For Any Challenges In Life

Life is filled with highs and lows —happiness and struggles that will test your resilience and integrity, push you to overcome challenges and leave you with lessons that will make you even stronger on your way up.

It’s the way you feel and think about yourself, including your expectations and beliefs about what is possible to you, greatly determines everything that happens to you.
