I am a lion, with a little otter on the side.
As a part-time gig, I teach sexual health at our local schools and one of the activities that we do is a personality test. One of our goals is to teach the students to make good choices in regard to their relationships and by learning more about themselves and how they are, so they can make better choices in a partner.
I just wrapped up the personality test with a class of 8th graders and was thrilled with their attentiveness and the way they responded to learning about themselves. A few students asked me to guess what they were, so I wrote it on a piece of paper and hid it in their books for them to find after they took the test. I have a pretty good read on people, even after knowing them for only a few days, and they were astonished that I got their correct dominant and sub-dominant combination.
It’s an easy test and you can’t study for it. Here is the gist: you pick what words best describe you and hit the button. This test may not be scientific, but it is enlightening for sure. You have characteristics of all of the personality types, but this test will show you what your dominant and sub-dominant traits are. This can really help you understand why you react to other people the way you do and how you treat others. It is important not to take this FOR someone, but allow them to choose the words that best describe them.
I may have made all of my big kids and their significant others take the test. I was so surprised by the results. I found out my son, who I thought was just like me, was indeed nothing like me and his wife was just like me, which explains why he wants to please the two lions in his life since he is a golden retriever. The results helped me understand my sweet stepdaughter and her fun-loving attitude, and I learned so much about each of our big kids and their significant others.
So take a few moments and take the test. I’m a lion, what are you?
