I am the type of person who loves knowing little details. One of the things I pride myself on is being able to remember peoples Zodiac sign or how they like their tea etc. I just love to know the little things that make people who they are. Not too long ago while watching a video on YouTube did I realise that I don’t really know much about myself other than the basics that you need to know. I decided to do a little bit of digging and here’s what I found out. Disclaimer: I did quizzes and looked up my horoscope. So it’s not scientific or anything but I really feel like the things within the answers resonated with me so much.
HOROSCOPE – SCORPIO
My Zodiac sign is a Scorpio as my birthday is on November the 14th. I know some people disregard these signs and their meaning but I quite enjoy what they tell me. Yes, I am aware it’s not the gospel truth but it’s something that interests me. When I looked at the traits, I found that my sign answered a lot of questions I had about myself. Apparently, Scorpio’s tend to be overemotional, a fact I’m sure my boyfriend will agree with.
They’re also trustworthy and loyal – this also resonated with me because another thing I pride myself on is my loyalty. Scorpio’s are also known to be creative and resourceful. I wasn’t too sure if I agreed with the creative part because I can’t paint or create any kind of art but I suppose writing is a creative skill and I obviously enjoy that.
Guarded and suspicious are apparently two of the weaknesses of the Scorpio which I agree with. I can be quite sceptical of people and their intentions which leads me to be more wary of them. I think I learned these traits in secondary school as sometimes I let me guard down a little too early and ended up getting upset.
Another weakness of Scorpio’s is their obsessive nature – when speaking for myself I completely agree. When I watch a series, I get so sucked into the universe around it. I’ll sit in lectures wondering what will happen next or before I sleep I’ll wonder what could’ve happened differently. The same with YouTubers, I’ll go through a phase where I’ll only watch one person and I will set reminders for their videos.
MYERS-BRIGGS PERSONALITY TEST – INFJ-T
I also did a personality test which again really resonated with me. Turns out I am an INFJ-T personality type aka Advocate. The main aspect of this personality type was being an introvert – a fact that I know to be true about myself. I love my alone time where I can just be in my bubble.
Another trait of this type is following your heart over your head, again, something I do quite often. Though I like to plan things down to the finest detail, that doesn’t mean that my heart completely quashes its spontaneity.
To twist it up, there was a trait in the list that I didn’t agree with which was decisiveness. I am probably the most indecisive person on this planet (ask my boyfriend). For some reason, I just can’t handle the pressure that decision-making puts on me. Sensitive and private were on the list too.
As mentioned before I like my private time and I also can be sensitive. I tend to overthink things that I say or others say. Picking it apart to find the negative even if there isn’t any. But, I am working on just accepting the positive and not delving deeper for a negative that doesn’t exist.
LOVE LANGUAGE – QUALITY TIME
I’ve been wanting to do the Love Language test for a long time because I find this kinda stuff really interesting. Of course, I already have some idea of my love language but it was insightful to take the test because it really boiled down the type of person that I am in a relationship. Overall, there are five categories that they score you on and here’s the score I got for each category. Quality Time (9), Words of Affirmation (8), Physical Touch (6), Acts of Service (5) and Recieving Gifts (2). I would honestly say that this is pretty accurate.
Trust me to get the highest score in Quality Time while being in a long-distance relationship, I really lucked out there. I am really big on my time with Liam because it’s so sacred to me. Liam and I only get to see each other every month or so, so when we do get some time together it is very precious to me.
I second guess myself in my relationship a lot which has nothing to do with Liam but comes from a fear of abandonment, thanks Dad! So, when I scored an eight on Words of Affirmation came as no surprise really. I’m forever asking Liam silly questions like, “Do you love me?” or “Are you sure you want to be with me?” and bless his heart because he does such a good job at reassuring me that he does indeed want this relationship.
My lowest score was in Receiving Gifts which again, came as no shock. I’ve always been a big believer in that gifts don’t make a relationship. Most relationships I’ve seen where they are materialistic either end up breaking up or just aren’t happy. Liam’s time, effort and commitment mean more to me than anything he could ever buy me. Even though he is an absolute sweetheart and he’s always sending me little gifts without telling me.
