Why personality tests work against you.

I often felt a strange one, feeling the odd one in a group. I felt that the type of personality was rare, and thought that something must be wrong with me. Did you ever felt like you are the strange one in your group?

Personality tests helped me to understand myself better.

It gave clarity on how my ’type’ thinks and acts.

It points out my strengths but also my weaknesses.

Doing Enneagrams, Myers-bricks, StrenghtFinders, and DISC taught me a lot about myself. I learned to see that those things that made me different are unique. That my personality can be a gift. And that I should tap into my gifting.

For this season I work with a coach that keeps me accountable to my goals. I do better when other people hold me accountable than only to myself. Can’t let other people down, right?

During our first conversation, I was trying to explain, why I do the things I am doing from the point of my personality.

Why I am self-sabotaging.

I learned a lot about myself through all the personality tests that I can put the finger on the sore spots. My personality flaws because those are typical type 7’s.

"The reason why losing weight is hard because my personality type is saying that I would probably always be bigger, as I don’t want to restrict myself much as 7’s like to enjoy their life.”

"Why I avoid doing activities I think are boring, as 7’s like to focus on the fun projects.”

“My lack of executing, because I love to plan and strategizing”

The problem starts when we are hiding behind our personality test outcome.

It is one point to acknowledge them, but then prove them wrong!

I might have the tendency’s to do certain things, but this doesn’t mean that I have to do this.

I believe that God can work with our weaknesses, and make us strong in the areas where we are naturally weak.

I can become a person I like to become, despite my personality. And I believe that just working hard to break are natural tendencies is making us reach our goals. Those two go hand in hand. And then you can just accomplish about anything!

So don’t use personality tests as an excuse, like I did. 

Use them for good.

Focus on your strengths.

Know in what areas you need help.

 

Change any outcome with God’s strength and do the hard work.

Where am I holding back on what I have started to believe about myself?
