Personality types, do you know yours?

Protagonists are the most likely personality type to enjoy preparing food.

Until I started working back in the UK again I will admit that this type of test was not offered to me by any of my company HR’s in Dubai or friends. The ‘old’ me also wouldn’t really care about it if I’m being honest, I was who I was and that was that. However, in my old age I now ACTUALLY CARE about my personality type and absolutely obsessed with finding out more about the way I tick. I’m sure many of you are curious as to your personality types or maybe you have done a while ago but I would encourage you to give it another go as we humans change every 7 years.  Understanding your personality type can help at work, with friends, parenting and your relationship. Finding out your partners personality type is the ideal way to understand how you can both work through things and avoid conflict and live a happy and balanced life.

There are over 16 types of personalities all ranging between, explorers, diplomats, sentinels, and analyst’s. I am a Diplomat, and to be more precise a protagonist.

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.

My Strengths,

  • Tolerant – Protagonists are true team players, and they recognize that that means listening to other peoples’ opinions, even when they contradict their own. They admit they don’t have all the answers, and are often receptive to dissent, so long as it remains constructive.
  • Reliable – The one thing that galls Protagonists the most is the idea of letting down a person or cause they believe in. If it’s possible, Protagonists can always be counted on to see it through.
  • Charismatic – Charm and popularity are qualities Protagonists have in spades. They instinctively know how to capture an audience, and pick up on mood and motivation in ways that allow them to communicate with reason, emotion, passion, restraint – whatever the situation calls for. Talented imitators, Protagonists are able to shift their tone and manner to reflect the needs of the audience, while still maintaining their own voice.
  • Altruistic – Uniting these qualities is Protagonists’ unyielding desire to do good in and for their communities, be it in their own home or the global stage. Warm and selfless, Protagonists genuinely believe that if they can just bring people together, they can do a world of good.
  • Natural Leaders – More than seeking authority themselves, Protagonists often end up in leadership roles at the request of others, cheered on by the many admirers of their strong personality and positive vision.

There were a few negative points but I’m not going to harp on about the negative, I know where I need to now improve.

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.
