Facebook Quizzes: Our Quest to Know Who..TH We Are!

by Mindy Kaleta on July 22, 2015

What Personality Type are you- (1)

You’ve seen them…those quizzes that come across your feed promising to let you know…

  • What state you should be living in
  • What color represents your personality
  • What character you are in a movie
  • What career is best for you

They are super popular right now on Facebook and I admit I love taking the quiz! I guess it’s our never-ending curiosity as to “Who I really am”! And we believe this quiz will be the one to finally tell us!!

I bet you’ve taken a few yourself, and if you have, you found some pleasure knowing…hey, maybe I WILL “follow my dream” and live near the beach, write that book, be like my character Peter from the Disney movie Peter Pan and someday just stop striving and trying and being so responsible to fly away to “Neverland”!!  (A girl’s gotta wish, yes?)

And I admit…those quizzes are fun, give you a reason to slough off at work and kill some time with your friends as you share your results and compare.

But are there some quizzes, assessments, tests that are truly beneficial in actually seeing your life from a different perspective with the ability to catapult you to the life you’ve always wanted?


YES! I am excited about a few assessments that I use with clients and a few I loved so much and blew my mind I had to become a partner with them!


Take for instance the Kolbe Index/ Instinct Assessment.  This one doesn’t measure how you think or feel, it measures how you normally and naturally DO things! Now, there’s a twist!

I had never had someone measure what I DO naturally before! It was such a relief to find out, that in any given situation or any circumstance I had a usual MO (mode of operation) that I would follow. I understand this MO doesn’t change throughout your life either like your personality can change with the thoughts and feelings you are experiencing from time to time. So this is one you can count on for life!

Take the Kolbe A™ Index


There is also one called “HowtoFascinate” discovered by Sally Hogshead. Yes, that is her last name and she talks about her name on her site and how her name has been of benefit! Interesting story, check it out!

This one is a personality assessment but what I found unique about this one is, it’s not based on how you see the world, but how the world sees YOU to help you create better relationships, grow your business and live the life you love!

In my recently released book, Stop Bending Over Backwards Trying to Please, I recommend the free 16Personalities Test! It’s very comprehensive and separates out how your personality type shows up in the major categories of life such as:

  • Introduction
  • Strengths & Weaknesses
  • Romantic Relationships
  • Friendships
  • Parenthood
  • Career Paths
  • Workplace Habits
  • Conclusion

I was unable to partner with these guys, but just couldn’t resist asking them if I could use their free test for my book readers and they were super to allow me to do so! Love these guys!
