Imagine. Just imagine for a moment.
You’re in the Great Hall of Hogwarts, ready for your name to be read out and the Sorting Hat placed on your head. You wonder which House you’ll be put in. Will it be the right one for you? What if the Hat makes a mistake? What if you’re actually a Muggle and you can’t be in a House?
You’re likely wondering “What is this guy on about?” Well, there’s a very good reason why I’m mentioning the Sorting Hat.
The Sorting Hat is practically a test of yourself. It looks into your mind, shifting through personalities. So, in other words, it puts you in the House your personality matches. Take Ravenclaw for example. Students in Ravenclaw are classed as witty, always learning, and having a good imagination. If that’s you, then you belong there.
The 16 Personalities Test works similarly. It asks you a series of questions, and at the end, it takes your answers and places you in a group it feels is correct.
It is important to point out that you won’t always belong to the same group every time you take the test. Who you are now could change completely in five years’ time, maybe even just one year or six months.
I won’t go into details about the personalities themselves, as their website does a brilliant job at it, but I will talk about why taking the test is vital in understanding yourself.
Many people wander through life thinking they know who they are. But there is a good chance they only know a little. The 16 Personalities expands on each area of a person’s life, from everyday habits, to careers and relationships, both romantically and friendly. You might find yourself agreeing with everything or only half, but the fact remains you know more about yourself then you did before the test.
Not only that, at the bottom of your grouping, there is a list of famous people, both real and fictional, who fall into your personality. Some examples are the Queen, Nelson Mandela, Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings, and Willie Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
So take the test and discover your personality. You might find something you never thought was a possibility.
