I’ve got another Barbs and Kristina vlog to share today. Last Thursday I had B try a sheet mask for the first time, and she shares a special beauty tip that I had never heard of:
I also recently took the Enneagram personality test that has gained popularity recently. I don’t put much stock into these kinds of tests but they’re something interesting to do when I’m bored.
The Enneagram tests tells you which number on a scale of 1 to 9 you are, and then what that number can tell you about your personality.
This particular test takes into account that most people won’t be one specific number, but may fall in between two types of numbers. They call this in-between a “wing.”
The test said I was a 5 with a 6-wing. This supposedly means I’m a problem-solver which sounds about right, but I bet a lot of people feel that they are problem-solvers, even those who might not score as a 5 with a 6.
Supposedly fives are:
- Able to concentrate on developing complex ideas and skills
- Independent, innovative, and inventive
- Preoccupied with thoughts and imaginary constructs
- Can become detached, high-strung, and intense
- Have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation
- Want to have everything figured out as a way of defending the self from threats
I would say I agree that at least 85% of this seems to accurately describe me.
I don’t think I have problems with nihilism, and I’m not even sure what it means to have problems with eccentricity. Does that mean I have a problem with eccentric people, or that I have a problem being eccentric?
The desire to have everything figured out as a defense mechanism is definitely true – but isn’t that the case for most people?
If you take the test let me know what number you got and if you think it accurately describes you. And if you think it’s specific to you, or if it could describe almost anyone!
