Who Am I? Tag

I’ve seen this tag floating around for a while, and always wanted to complete it, so thank you so much to Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities for tagging me! Everyone, please go check out her awesome blog here.

What does my name mean?
 Laura

laura_ingalls_wilder_cropped_sepia2From Behind the NameLaura is “the feminine form of the Late Latin name Laurus, which meant “laurel“. This meaning was favourable, since in ancient Rome the leaves of laurel trees were used to create victors’ garlands.”

This also seems like a good place to inform you guys that I was (according to my dad, my mum just rolls her eyes) named after the author Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote the Little House on the Prairie series. I have never read her books myself, but my dad loves them, and he adores the T.V. series too.

What is my Myers-Briggs personality type? (Link)

Apparently I’m INTP-T: introverted, intuitive, thinking, prospecting and turbulent.

The Logician personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there’s nothing they’d be more unhappy about than being “common”. Logicians pride themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, Logicians have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history.

– I can’t see myself being a scientist (bit late for that), but I’ll take dreamy professor!

aquarius-symbol-300x300What is my Zodiac sign? (Link)

I’m an Aquarius (January 20 – February 19)

Strengths: Progressive, original, independent, humanitarian.

Weaknesses: Runs from emotional expression, temperamental, uncompromising, aloof.

Aquarius likes: Fun with friends, helping others, fighting for causes, intellectual conversation, a good listener.

Aquarius dislikes: Limitations, broken promises, being lonely, dull or boring situations, people who disagree with them.

– This is so me, I’m laughing.

What is my Hogwarts house? (Link)

hp-slytherin

Slytherin – 14
Gryffindor – 13
Ravenclaw – 8
Hufflepuff – 4

That’s weird, because in every other Hogwarts House test I’ve taken, I’m (obviously) Slytherin first, and then Ravenclaw. Never gotten Gryffindor as second before, especially when it’s so close too.

What are my learning styles? (Link)

I have a mild read/write learning preference: This preference uses the printed word as the most important way to convey and receive information

  • Visual: 5
  • Aural: 5
  • Read/Write: 8
  • Kinesthetic: 4
Am I left or right brain dominant? (Link)

I never, ever would have guessed I’m am right brain dominant, at least by so much. I have always thought I’m more creative, but who knows?

What is my blood type?

B positive!

I had to take a blood test a few years ago, and I asked the nurse to find out my blood type while she was there. Fun fact: when you go for a blood test, you need to specifically ask they test for your blood type, otherwise they don’t.

What career am I meant to have? (Link)

Screen Shot 2017-07-19 at 2.20.17 pm

– I would be surprised if any of us on here got anything other than Writer.

Screen Shot 2017-07-19 at 2.25.34 pmWhat Divergent faction do I belong in? (Link)

“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.”

– Very interesting, didn’t expect that

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.

The first part is definitely true, but I’ve never disappointed my parents (that sounds so up-myself, but it’s true). I’m rebellious when they try to force me to behave a certain way, or do something I don’t want to, but I’ve always managed to measure up to their expectations.

  1. Thanks for the tag Laura 😘! It looks like an awesome one and I also don’t know the answers to half of these so I’ll learn new stuff about myself. It’s adorable how your dad named you after an author for a book series he loved! I’m the firstborn child too but I barely fit any of the characterstics 😅..

  2. Ah, thanks for tagging me, Laura! Ooh, we’re so close! I’m an INFP-T haha! And when I took a right brain, left brain test, I was thinking I was more creative, but I got half and half. Which I guess is pretty accurate now haha. And woo hoo for getting writer! 😊

  3. Oh it’s so nice that your father named you after an author! I love how your mom is so not taking it, though XD
    I don’t believe any test to be as accurate as Pottermore (which is considered the standard, true test anyway) so I wouldn’t worry too much about it. I’m dying to find out which one I’ll get, because I’m a Gryffindor with some serious nuances myself.
    And every blogger gets a writer… How surprising 😛 We’ll all be coworkers someday and have tons of fun at the office, I guess!
    Great tag and thank you so much for tagging me! I’ll try to have it up as soon as I can 🙂

    1. Yeah, my mum’s like “don’t be silly it’s just a nice name,” and my dad’s like “no, she’s Laura Ingalls.” Hahah
      Yeah I agree, Pottermore all the way – I’m in Slytherin there. Interesting to see what you get 😀
      Hope you have fun with the tag Sophie 💕
