Hey girl hey. And boy.
A while ago, a blogging friend Mckayla told me about 16personalities in a Q & A question. At first, I didn’t think much of it. Just a bunch of generic disagree or agree questions could never represent my potato self and interests. But giiiirl was I wrong. This has got to be the best personality quiz out there and I literally tried it on my relatives at a family gathering the next day (clap for me guys, I said something other than: ‘um salam aleikum. how are you? alhamdulillah I’m good. mm shukran. ma’ alsalama (bye)’).
We laughed so hard as my uncle and aunt were trying to get me to send a link to their relationship analysis. My uncle was literally doing everything he can to trigger her and nodded his head at least 50 times at all her weaknesses. So yeah, this quiz is so much fun to discuss with friends and family and today, I’ll be sharing my results with you because we’re all familyyyy. ❤ But enough being corny and let’s get starteddd.
I’ve always seen myself as an Ambivert tooo. This seems pretty accurate but loool 26% thinkinggg. Your sis turned out to be emotional which is true sometimes! And phew – I’m a little more assertive than aggressive so…so far so good.
“Protagonists are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, Protagonists take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.”
“People are drawn to strong personalities, and Protagonists radiate authenticity, concern and altruism, unafraid to stand up and speak when they feel something needs to be said. They find it natural and easy to communicate with others, especially in person, and their Intuitive (N) trait helps people with the Protagonist personality type to reach every mind, be it through facts and logic or raw emotion”
“The interest Protagonists have in others is genuine, almost to a fault – when they believe in someone, they can become too involved in the other person’s problems, place too much trust in them.”
10/10 – Omggg duuude this is so nice and why is this so accurate? I’m always trynna get involved in people’s tea to help. They’re so nice though and I feel boastful agreeing but eh, if you know yourself, you know yourself.
Strength and Weaknesses
Strengths: Tolerance, Reliable, Charismatic, Altruistic and Natural Leaders
Awww I hope these are true omg.
The tea shall begin. I was so interested to see this one.
Too idealistic: can be caught off guard as they find that, through circumstance or nature, or simple misunderstanding, people fight against them and defy the principles they’ve adopted, they are more likely to feel pity for this opposition than anger, and can earn a reputation of naïveté.
Too selfless: can bury themselves in their hopeful promises, feeling others’ problems as their own and striving hard to meet their word.
Too sensitive: their sensitivity to others means that Protagonists sometimes feel problems that aren’t their own and try to fix things they can’t fix, worrying if they are doing enough.
….fluctuating self esteem and a struggle to make tough decisions.
Y’all why is this so kind? Even weaknesses are positive here. But that’s so true – I end up putting too much burdens on myself and the decision one yesss.
Protagonists’ tendency to avoid any kind of conflict, sometimes even sacrificing their own principles to keep the peace, can lead to long-term problems if these efforts never fully resolve the underlying issues that they mask. On the other hand, people with the Protagonist personality type can sometimes be too preemptive in resolving their conflicts, asking for criticisms and suggestions in ways that convey neediness or insecurity. Protagonists invest their emotions wholly in their relationships, and are sometimes so eager to please that it actually undermines the relationship – this can lead to resentment, and even the failure of the relationship. When this happens, Protagonists experience strong senses of guilt and betrayal, as they see all their efforts slip away.
Anna ou- there goes my Turkish husband. 😂 He better appreciate my efforts! I feel like I’d sacrifice the peace for my values though but I mean if it isn’t worth the argument, I’ll try to chill. Hmm…this is interesting to know for future reference though.
People with the Protagonist personality type take genuine pleasure in getting to know other people, and have no trouble talking with people of all types and modes of thought. Even in disagreement, other perspectives are fascinating to Protagonists – though like most people, they connect best with individuals who share their principles and ideals, and types in Diplomat and Analyst Role groups are best able to explore Protagonists’ viewpoints with them, which are simply too idealistic for most. It is with these closest friends that Protagonists will truly open up, keeping their many other connections in a realm of lighthearted but genuine support and encouragement.
OMGGGGGG THIS IS SO TRUE!! I love talking to new people but only get close with selective ones. They’re usually ones that share my religious and cultural values and I always feel bad when I don’t click with other nice people but I guess the personalities and values sometimes clash? I also get along really well with introverts or ambiverts because if you’re too outgoing, I’m going to start feeling too quiet if that makes sense. Is anyone also getting gut feelings about friendships? I don’t know man – it’s weird but it works.
Owing to their aversion to conflict, Protagonist parents strive to ensure that their homes provide a safe and conflict-free environment. While they can deliver criticism, it’s not Protagonists’ strong suit, and laying down the occasionally necessary discipline won’t come naturally. But, people with the Protagonist personality type have high standards for their children, encouraging them to be the best they can be, and when these confrontations do happen, they try to frame the lessons as archetypes, moral constants in life which they hope their children will embrace.
Awww I hope I can live up to this!! I can agree with this because I have younger siblings and they will literally LAUGH if I try to discipline them. 😂 Which is so bad because they better take me seriously but idk I guess I’m too light-hearted around them. If I try to lecture a kid, I will actually start laughing unless it’s something really serious of course. But yeah, my husband better be fun and strict at the same time.
Altruistic careers like social and religious work, teaching, counseling, and advising of all sorts are popular avenues, giving people with the Protagonist personality type a chance to help others learn, grow, and become more independent. Protagonists make natural HR administrators, event coordinators, and politicians – anything that helps a community or organization to operate more smoothly. This para mentions [sales representatives and advertising consultants.]
Law enforcement, military service, and emergency response, will cause Protagonists to burn out quickly.
Protagonists need to make sure they get to focus on people, not systems and spreadsheets.
THIS IS SO ACCURATE OMG! Lawyer and doctor is out the window. And this is actually helping me pick careers – yes quiz!! I definitely love event coordinator, sales + marketing and politician and religious and counceling work – yesss. Managers of these categories that are reading this…*hint hint*. 😂 But seriously, this helps a lot.
What you have read so far is just an introduction into the complex concept that is the Protagonist personality type. You may have muttered to yourself, “wow, this is so accurate it’s a little creepy” or “finally, someone understands me!” You may have even asked “how do they know more about me than the people I’m closest to?”
This is not a trick. You felt understood because you were. We’ve studied how Protagonists think and what they need to reach their full potential. And no, we did not spy on you – many of the challenges you’ve faced and will face in the future have been overcome by other Protagonists. You simply need to learn how they succeeded.
But in order to do that, you need to have a plan, a personal roadmap. The best car in the world will not take you to the right place if you do not know where you want to go. We have told you how Protagonists tend to behave in certain circumstances and what their key strengths and weaknesses are. Now we need to go much deeper into your personality type and answer “why?”, “how?” and “what if?”
This knowledge is only the beginning of a lifelong journey. Are you ready to learn why Protagonists act in the way they do? What motivates and inspires you? What you are afraid of and what you secretly dream about? How you can unlock your true, exceptional potential?
Woaaah I didn’t know I was getting a personal ted talk. 😂 This is so motivating man and makes me want to research every protagonist out there lool. Seriously, I want you all to do this quiz right now (search up 16personalities or click here ) and tell me what you get! They said I get along with Diplomats and Analysts so let me know if we’re bff’s yet. 😂
Anddd that’s all for today.
Overall, this personality type is way too suger-coated for me and it looks like I might add 16personalities to my kleenex blackmail list but so many things described me well and I’m freaked. 😂 I hope y’all try this and TELL ME WHAT YOU GET IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!
I’ll see you guys on Friday.
