Normally I do post the tags in my queue in the order I was tagged in them. However the Who Am I tag looked like so much fun I had to bump it up my list. I’ll still get around to the others, don’t worry, but I couldn’t resist starting this one. I was tagged by Melissa at Book Nerd Momo and Anna at My Bookish Dream. Thanks so much both of you for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
What is the Meaning of My Name?
It seems like most people have done their first and middle names for this question so I’m going to do the same; Bethany Jo Kathleen.
Bethany is Hebrew in origin and comes from the name of a biblical town meaning “house of figs”. I actually did already know this, I remember looking up name meanings with my friends in high school and laughing about them. I’m not even a fan of figs but there we are.
Jo is a shortened version of German and Dutch masculine names, so it doesn’t have a specific meaning. Personally though both my middle names came from my grandparents. Jo is for Joyce my paternal grandmother.
Kathleen is an anglicized version of Caitlín, so again no specific meaning. For my family though Kathleen was my great-great-aunts name, my nan’s middle name and my mum’s middle name, so it’s a family name from my mum’s side.
What is my Myer-Briggs Personality Type? (Link)
I feel like I’ve done this test before but honestly I can’t remember what result I got, and even if I could I would have done it again simply for this tag.
Advocate Personality (INFJ, -A/-T)
The Advocate personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As members of the Diplomat Role group, Advocates have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is that they are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.
Advocates tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.
Advocates You May Know:
- Martin Luther King
- Nelson Mandela
- Mother Teresa
- Alanis Morissette
- Jimmy Carter
- Inspiring and convincing
- Determined and passionate
- Extremely private
- Always need to have a cause
- Can burn out easily
Well, I’m going to be honest here, I don’t think I’ve ever been so intimidated by my own personality type. However I do think the strengths and weaknesses fit me, more so the weaknesses than the strengths, so while at the moment I’m not ‘leaving my mark on the world’ I guess I still have some time left to do just that.
What is My Zodiac Sign?
I used to love astrology, and everything to do with the zodiac signs. Now not so much but every so often I do enjoy reading my horoscope and seeing what the stars have in store for me.
I’m a Gemini, so make of that what you will.
What is my Hogwarts House? (Link)
Again this is a quiz I did before, and again I can’t remember the exact results, so of course I took part again for this tag.
Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. The house has produced its share of great wizards—not least Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
- Hufflepuff – 15
- Ravenclaw – 13
- Gryffindor – 11
- Slytherin – 6
Three times I have taken some kind of sorting quiz – once on Pottermore and twice on the above link – and all three time I’ve gotten Hufflepuff. Later, when I told my friend after taking the Pottermore quiz, that I’d been sorted into Hufflepuff she literally laughed and said, ‘Well I could have told you that.’. I guess it really is my house.
What are my Learning Styles? (Link)
Apparently I have a multimodal learning preference, which actually makes sense because I learn different things in different ways.
- Visual – 4
- Aural – 6
- Read/Write – 8
- Kinaesthetic – 5
Based on my scores though it does seem I lean towards aural learning and reading/writing learning, which again does make sense to me based on how I’ve learnt things in the past.
Am I Right or Left Brain Dominant? (Link)
Apparently I use my brain equally. There’s really not that much in it at all, but if you’re being picky I am a little bit more right-brained than left.
What is my Blood Type?
I’m O+. This means I can give blood to people who are O+, A+, B+ and AB+, and receive blood from people who are O+ and O-.
What Career am I Meant to Have? (Link)
Everyone I’ve seen take part in this tag has gotten the same answer for this question, and apparently so did I. Kind of makes me wonder if there is any other option other than writer.
You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories.
What Divergent Faction Do I Belong In? (Link)
I am Divergent.
You deviate from the norm. The aptitude test is inconclusive. It cannot determine just one faction for you, Divergent. Your mind is ceaselessly changing. You’re creative, with a strong sense of self, and you have a clear picture of who you are and what you want. You stand out from the crowd. You may pose a threat to the norms of society, but you are unwilling to give into them.
Well, here’s hoping my story doesn’t end as badly as Tris’s did.
What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)
I am the firstborn in my family, so apparently this means I am a natural leader, ambitious and responsible. However in practise I don’t think this is the case. In fact the only one of these that could describe me is responsible.
While I can be ambitious I don’t think it’s a defining trait of mine, and in my family the natural leader role would go to my younger sister before it went to me.
