What's your Personality Type?

Every time I hear someone say “I’m a ‘Type A’ Personality” I start trying to remember what my “Personality Type” is.
I’ve been really blessed to have taken various "Personality Type" tests including: Meyers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory), I-Opt, DISC and others I don't remember. I usually agree with the results. However, I never seem to remember much more about those tests in order to confidently “describe” myself by them later. I believe that may be because I dislike labels.

The reason I’ve given up is that for the past 2 years or so I’ve been trying to locate all the various personality tests I’ve taken so I can collate and compare the results to determine a trend. When you look at the Google Dico, Personality is defined as "the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character." So your Personality Type much more than labels...it's who you are.




My conclusion: My Personality Type is FWMM – Fearfully and Wonderfully-Made Masterpiece.
The reason is simple, Psalm 139: 14 says

"I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well." (AMP)

And Ephesians 2:10 tells me that
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the things he planned for us long ago." (NLT)

So in line with my FWMM Personality Type, I will continue to do good work and good works @ work so my life gives God praise. What’s your Personality Type? Are you living up to it?

Have a great month ahead living up to your Personality Type!
