Who Am I? Tag

This was one tag I was asked to complete a while ago (I can’t remember by who, sorry!) but ended up not doing for one reason or another. However, it has come back around again thanks to Laura @ The Book Corps who recently tagged me. Please go and check out her fabulous blog!

Anyway, on with the tag!

What does my name mean?

Emma

From Behind the Name, it is initially Germanic, meaning “whole” or “universal.” It was introduced to England by Emma of Normandy (the mother of Edward the Confessor). It was also borne by an 11th Century Austrian saint who is sometimes called Hemma.

It has been common in England since the Norman conquest and was revived in the 18th Century, possibly in part to the poem ‘Henry and Emma’ by Matthew Prior in 1709. It also gives its name to the famous Austen novel ‘Emma.’

It’s a good job the novel is not my namesake because it is one of my least favourite Austen novels next to Mansfield Park!

What is my Myers-Briggs personality type (Link)

I don’t know how many times I’ve done this when I’ve forgotten what it has told me in the past, but this time I’m apparently INFJ-T: Introverted, intuitive, feeling, judging, and turbulent (the advocate personality)

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.

What is my Zodiac sign? (Link)

Aries (21st March to 19th April)
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Strengths: courageous, determined, confident., enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, passionate
Weaknesses: impatient, moody, short-tempered, impulsive, aggressive
Likes: Comfortable clothes, taking on leadership roles, physical challenges, individual sports
Dislikes: inactivity, delays, work that does not use one’s talents.
This is not me at all.

What is my Hogwarts house? (Link)

Hufflepuff – 16
Ravenclaw – 15
Gryffindor – 11
Slytherin – 6
Pottermore sorted me into Ravenclaw but considering there is only one point between Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff here, this is perfectly acceptable and fitting. I do consider myself to be a Ravenpuff anyway.

What are my learning styles? (Link)

I have a mild read/write learning preference.
  • Visual – 7
  • Aural – 6
  • Read/Write – 11
  • Kinesthetic – 7

Am I left or right brain dominant? (Link)

I had problems copying the diagram, but according to the quiz, I use my brain equally.
Although the exact percentages were:
Left – 59%
Right – 41%

What is my blood type?

I know I’m of the O blood group but I can’t remember if it is positive or negative. However, that means I am a universal blood donor so that’s a good thing to know.

What career am I meant to have? (Link)

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
 Fair enough!

What Divergent faction do I belong in? (Link)

Abnegation.
This doesn’t surprise me, to be honest.

What does my birth order say about me? (Link)

The Firstborn

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.

Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel. Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.

When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.

I would certainly agree with this observation, and I do often get the feeling that I don’t measure up to expectations – mainly with extended family.

TAG TIME
Of course don’t feel obligated to participate if you don’t want to, or have already done this tag at some point.

Thanks for reading and have a good day!

    1. I really couldn’t get through it. From what I managed to read, it was boring and the character of Emma was irritating. I’ve tried twice now, so never again!

      And that is cool. I never knew that fact before.

  1. Lovely tag, Emma! And I’m an Aries too 😀 When’s your birthday?
    For some reason, most bloggers tend to get the Writer career hahaha (can’t even wonder why!)
    I’ve been sorted into Gryffindor but I think hybrid houses are a much more accurate choice, indeed. I don’t know which other half I would get but I guess I’ll find out once I do the test 🙂
    Thank you so much for tagging me for this! ^^

    1. Thank you 😀

      My birthday is 12th April so just past the mid-point. Although like I said above, I don’t feel Aries at all. According to this specific link the zodiac sign closest to me is actually Pisces (around the dates my birthday should have been).

      I did the career quiz twice and the first time it suggested Therapist. Second time, I picked only one different answer for a question and I ended up as a Writer. If it was true, I wouldn’t mind either way!

      I agree with that. Sometimes there are days when I act more Hufflepuff than Ravenclaw and vice versa. I think that’s what was great about the Livermorny houses because they encompassed a wider range of qualities – I can’t remember any of them but Puckwudgie though.

      And that’s no problem. I look forward to seeing your answers!

      1. Mine’s on April 19th, so right on the cusp hahaha I heard that one’s rising sign influences your personality way more than your sun sign, and I think that might be true. I do have some Aries traits but I don’t consider myself a real Aries. I’m way more quiet, introverted and cautious. So the same might apply to you 🙂 Do you know your rising sign? I think mine’s Virgo, which would explain a lot xD
        I want to do the Ilvermorny quiz sometime (if there is one, that is). I didn’t know about the wider range of qualities, that’s awesome!
        Thanks, I’m excited for this one 😊❤️

      2. I’ve never heard of rising signs before so I’ll have to look it up.

        In terms of the Livermorny quiz, I think I did the one that was on Pottermore, but it was a while ago so I don’t really remember.

      3. Ah I see. I haven’t been to Pottermore in a while… My last visit was to read Rowling’s latest fiction piece. I guess I need to check it out 🙂
        You can find out your rising sign through a combination of the date, time and place you were born. I don’t really know how it works, though, but there’s tons of material online.

      4. To be fair, it has been ages since I was on the website too. I got bored once they changed it and I’ve not bothered with it.

        I did have a quick look at rising signs but I’ve never really paid much attention to astrology at all so it’s probably not something I will pay attention to.

      5. Oh yeah, I thought they kind of over-complicated a bit. It took a bit of time to get used to it.
        I’m not a hardcore astrology believer either, but it does amuse me 🙂 I enjoy learning about it from time to time and some stuff is actually pretty interesting (although I wouldn’t call it factual in the least)

    1. Your Meyers Briggs personality is the same as mine! It has changed from a couple of years ago but I think the INFJ is definitely the one that is the most like me.

      I think the career quiz takes your main answer from one of the last questions (might have been the famous person you’d want to be around for a day). I did it twice and the first time I clicked Freud, so it said I should be a counsellor or someone like that. When I did it again (clicking the exact same answers but changing from Freud to the writer whose name I have forgotten) I got writer as my career.
