Some of my fondest members as a young middle schooler was going to the grocery store with my mom. If I was diligent in pushing the cart, picking spotless produce, lining the items up on the belt and packing those plastic bags into the back of my mom's mini-van, I would receive the greatest gift-- a shiny, glossy copy of J-14.
And inside those pages, I would find the golden treasure. "Which Jonas Brother Are You Most Likely to Date?" or "What's Your Flirting Style?" It didn't matter that I already knew I was going to marry Joe, or that I literally had NO ONE to flirt with in middle school, but I looked to those glossy pages to tell me who I was each week.
Now that I'm an adult, I look to much more refined personlity quizzes to help me learn about myself, my preferences and the world around me. It's also helpful in learning about the people in my life, as well. So here's my top FREE personality quizzes!
My favorite is probably the Meyers-Briggs personality quiz. After rating how true each statement is about you, you receive four letters-- each telling you about a unique part about yourself.
The first is MIND or how you interact with the world around you. You can either be an E (extrovert) or I (introvert).
The second is ENERGY or how you see the world and process information. You can either be an S (observant and practical) or N (intuitive and imaginative).
The third is NATURE or how you cope with emotions and make decisions. You can either be an T (thinking) or F (feeling).
The last is TACTICS or how you work. You can either be a J (judging) or P (prospecting).
After taking the test you are matched with a role, which will tell you a little more about your goals and interests, as well as famous people who have the same personality as you!
I am an ISFJ and my role is Defender.

The next test that SO MANY of my friends are into is the Enneagram Test. I have to be honest. I am not super into this, but many people find it helpful and worthwhile, so I wanted to include it! After answering Yes, No or Partly to certain statements, you receive your Enneagram.
There are 9 personalities, which are numbered one through nine, and given a title.
Type 1 is the Reformer. Type 2 is the Helper. Type 3 is the Achiever. Type 4 is the Individualist. Type 5 is the Investigator. Type 6 is the Loyalist. Type 7 is the Enthusiast, Type 8 is the Challenger and Type 9 is the Peacemaker.
My Enneagram is Type 6!

The next test that is relatively new to me but I seriously love is the Color Test! This test has you answer some questions based on the accuracy of the statement and it will connect you with a color. The answers are all based on motives. Red is motivated by power, Blue is motivated by intimacy, White is motivated by peace and yellow is motivated by fun. I'm a blue!

This one is a little different than the others but this one has practically helped me in the most ways. This one is called the Love Languages Quiz. If you haven't read The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, you need to. It basically argues that everyone has a love language-- a way that they best receive and give love. The different options are Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, and Quality Time. Brandon and I both read the book and took the quiz before we got married and it has been INSANELY helpful in relationships. Even in friendships, it's good to know what your friends are so you can best love them.
I never have a for sure love language but feel more of a mix of three-- acts of service, words of affirmation and gifts. I feel so loved by all of them, so I don't feel like I am one more than the other! But this time, it looks like the quiz showed up as being more of an acts of service love language. I am so intrigued by this quiz.

Finally, but maybe more importantly, you need to have Which Character From The Office Are You? Personality Quiz in your life. I need to know if you're a Dwight, Kevin, Michael, Angela or even worse...a Toby. I kid, I kid....but do I really? Also, I'm a Kelly. Didn't see that one coming but I'm full of surprises! (;
