Folks, you won’t believe it, but that’s actually me in the photo above. It’s a couple years old by now, but when I try I can apparently look like I am from a different era (let’s ignore the fact that the hair completely dissolved 5 minutes later and the dress didn’t even close in the back – who cares about details, right?). This random blast from the past is brought to you by Puput @Sparkling Letters, because she tagged me to do the Who Am I? tag and that’s what I am doing right now. Bring on the questions!
What is the meaning of my name?
So, for all of you who didn’t know, Kat is short for Katja. It means pure or unsullied, which I don’t very much feel like I am. But it’s a great name. It fits to my last name, which is long and unpronounceable, and it’s a well known name in the German speaking area. However, it’s not used THAT often, so I didn’t have like 15 classmates with the same name at school.
Sometimes people think I am Russian, especially in combination with my Czech last name (can’t speak the Czech language though, that was generations ago), but mostly they write that name with a “y” instead of the “j”.
What is my Myer-Briggs personality type? [LINK]
I’ve done that test before, but since I can remember pretty much zero, I just did it again. Now, the results are in *drum roll please* INFP-T (could have sworn I was a INFJ once, but whatever, people change?)
- 69% introverted
- 77% intuitive
- 82% feeling
- 67% prospecting
- 77% turbulent
Apparently that means I am a mediator kind of person (like William Shakespeare, Tom Hiddleston or Sybil Branson from Downton Abbey) and that I am always looking for the best in people and situations. Not sure that’s always true, but yeah, I can see that. I don’t want to believe that anyone is truly evil! “When deciding how to move forward, they will look to honor, beauty, morality and virtue – Mediators are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments.” – THERE’S THAT WORD PURITY AGAIN?
They totally got it right that Fantasy worlds fascinate me … it’s only my most read genre. They also mentioned that I listen to many, but talk to few and it’s true, I do have a great desire for harmony, friction makes me tense and anxious. It states that I have a “hermit mode”, which I totally love. I can now blame my personality type for a lot of things.
I guess you can never agree with these things 100% but it hit super close to home.
What is my Zodiac Sign?
So, I am a leo with ascendant virgo. I don’t necessarily believe in astrology, but sometimes it’s fun to read the predictions and traits. Because the whole leo shebang is rarely ever fitting, I often check what it says for virgo too. Look, for example it says the following:
They are dramatic, creative self-confident, dominant and extremely difficult to resist.
Am I dramatic? Sure! But I am not that self-confident or dominant and oh boy, are there many people who were clearly able to resist me. Also, it often states that they like to be in the spotlight, which I really don’t. There are some traits I can agree with, like the laziness or being passionate, because hello? Have you seen my TV posts? 100% passion! I guess it’s a two-sided coin like everything.
What is my Hogwarts House? [LINK]
Ravenclaw … obviously!
What are my learning styles? [LINK]
Apparently I have a multimodal learning preference. It means I learn best when all my senses are occupied I guess. From what I remember from uni, I always knew answers to tests better if I had been there for the lecture and heard it myself and then read my own handwritten notes on it later. (which probably explains my perfect attendance in all three years)
Am I right or left brain dominant? [LINK]
That test just told me “Congratulations, you use your brain equally!” but to be more exact, the results were 47% left and 53% right. What does that tell us? I am both rational and intuitive. I like to follow rules, but am terribly curious.
What is my Blood Type?
0 neg – interpretation of that: if I am ever in danger of bleeding out and there is no other person with 0 neg around, I will most likely die.
What career am I meant to have? [LINK]
I kidd you not! The result is 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.
That prediction makes me ridiculously happy.
Which Divergent Faction do I belong in? [LINK]
As much as I want to believe I am divergent, I knew that wasn’t going to be the result. I am an Erudite … what am I supposed to tell you? Yay knowledge?
What does my birth order say about me? [LINK]
I honestly don’t see the point in doing this, seen as I am an only child? What would the order be? I can put myself in the order of my cousins, then I would be one of the middle cousins. Does that make any sense?
I Tag Thee
Wow, those were a lot of quizzes and a ton of self-analysation. Don’t you feel like you know me so much better after this? Now it is your turn!
