What is your Archetype?

An archetype is described as a pattern of behavior. I took a quiz recently (big surprise there) and it profiled my main patterns of behavior. This quiz represents a generic version of my personality and something I can use to better determine where I should focus my energy.


43% Intellectual

If you’re an Intellectual, you’re always seeking knowledge and wisdom.

28% Caregiver

A Caregiver is someone who lives to give and needs to be useful.

9% Visionary

Visionary women see important things before others do and make new rules that change the world.

So, that’s me, what about you? As y’all know I’m quite addicted to personality quizzes. I thought this one was different because it asked questions I hadn’t been asked before. I do think it’s true that I love learning so the intellectual “type” fits. I also liked how my close second was caregiver. I do really care about others. Sometimes come off as bossy or I can offer advice that’s not necessarily warranted. I was always taught that you shouldn’t be afraid to step up when you think someone is in trouble and I guess that just hasn’t changed as I’ve gotten older. I really do care about the health and well-being of each and every one of y’all so it’s only natural that I might shove a bunch of “self-help” down your throats. Hope you don’t think it’s too much and instead you find awesome advice and encouragement.

Don’t forget to take the quiz and let me know your results!




41 Questions. 1 Personality.

Hey y’all! A friend posted this personality quiz on Facebook so you know I had to click through and find out what mine said. It was a quick quiz and I think that it’s generally spot on. I’ve taken some Myers-Briggs personality profile exams before and I already know I’m a pretty solid ENFJ. Here is what this quiz said about me. If you can, take the quiz yourself and post your results in the comments or email it to me. Self discovery is always interesting.
