A “who am I quiz” is what we usually refer to as a personality test or a personality quiz. By taking a personality quiz, you can learn a lot about yourself. You can learn about your personality traits, how you operate in friendships or romantic relationships, what kind of job or career role you’ll thrive in, and more. You can learn about if you’re more introverted or extroverted, your communication style, what you need in your interpersonal relationships, and even get some insight into your purpose in life. Often, we take personality tests for fun, but sometimes, we are on a path to self-discovery and want to get to know ourselves on a deeper level.

What Are Some Of The Best Personality Quizzes?

Here are some of the best and most commonly used personality tests and personality quizzes you can find online.

The MBTI test can even help you learn about how you operate as a friend, parent, or guardian.

Enneagram

The Enneagram is a personality test that distinguishes between nine different personality types. It will read how much your traits relate to those different personality types and put them in order. The name of the anagram test combines the Greek words “Ennea” and “Gramma.” The nine Enneagram personality types include the reformer, the helper, the achiever, the individualist, the investigator, the loyalist, the enthusiast, the challenger, and the peacemaker. The Enneagram test is another highly popular personal quiz that can make for a great conversation starter.

DiSC

DiSC stands for the following:

Dominance

Influence

The DISC assessment looks at the four factors above. The Dominance component analyzes assertiveness or the way you assert yourself and how you approach problems. The influence component describes your communication and the way that you interact with others. The steadiness component looks at your patience level and temperament. The conscientiousness or compliance component looks at how you adhere to guidelines or procedures and your behaviors as they relate to responsibility.

Attachment Style Quizzes

Learning about your attachment style can be incredibly helpful if you want to learn to navigate your interpersonal relationships more effectively. There are four attachment styles; avoidant attachment, anxious attachment, anxious-avoidant attachment, and secure attachment. Once you learn your primary attachment style, you will have more information about how you operate in your relationships and work on it if necessary. For example, if you find out that you have an avoidant attachment style and want to work toward becoming more secure, you can see a counselor and make your way to the goal of becoming more securely attached.

Love Language Quizzes

The five love languages are gift-giving, words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, and acts of service. Taking a love language quiz can help you determine your primary love language or which ones you resonate with the most. You can give it to your partner to take, too, as a fun activity for couples! Knowing each other’s love language is helpful in relationships because it’ll shed light on the ways that each of you prefers to receive affection. For example, if your partner’s love language is acts of service, you might knock out some household chores or help them fix something to show them you love them. If yours is quality time, they’ll know that when they want to show you that they love you, they can plan a night for you two to spend together as a way to say, “I love you.” You can have a combination of multiple love languages, or you could have one primary love language. Still, a love language quiz is a great start to knowing more about yourself and your needs in relationships.

How Do I Know If A Quiz Is Worth My Time?

If a personality quiz is worth, your time or not largely depends on what you’re hoping to learn from taking the personality quiz. For example, if you are hoping to get a sense of who you are as a business person or in your career, you’re going to want to take a personality test that relates to your career. If you are looking to learn more about how you operate in relationships, you will want to find a personality test geared toward that. Sometimes, the only way to know if a quiz is worth your time or not is to take it. Regardless, they can shed insight on aspects of yourself that you may not be aware of otherwise, and that is valuable.

How Can A Quiz Help Me Get To Know Myself?

There is a lot of value in taking the time to invest in yourself. Part of that is getting to know yourself as a person. When you know yourself as a person, you’ll have a better sense of what you want to achieve in life, what hurdles you might have, what strengths you have that can help you meet your goals, and what you need in your life to feel fulfilled. You’ll have higher levels of self-knowledge, and likely, higher levels of confidence because many personality tests focus on identifying strengths and how to use them. A personality test will help you get to know yourself because it’ll uncover specific, targeted areas of information about yourself, depending on what quiz you take. It’ll give you the verbiage to describe your attributes to others, and it’ll give you a greater sense of self-awareness.

In other cases, a personality test will confirm what you already know. Some of us struggle with our sense of selves or validating ourselves as a person. It can be helpful to take a personality test that makes you think, “Hey, that really is true,” or “wow, I guess that is one of my strengths!”

What Are Some Other Ways To Learn About Myself?

There are a ton of ways to learn about yourself and get to know yourself better. On top of online quizzes, one of the best ways to get to know yourself better is to spend time by yourself. Think about what your core values are and what you enjoy doing. How would you describe yourself to other people? Even more, how would you like to describe yourself to people? Challenge yourself to answer the question, “who am I?” in a positive way. You can even write a list of words that describe yourself and reflect on them. Sometimes, asking friends or family members to describe you can give you some insight. Another way to learn about yourself is to go to counseling.
