Personality is defined as the organized pattern of behavioral characteristics of the individual, according to www.dictionary.com. I recently took two different personality tests. I have to admit, I was very impressed with the results. The first test I took determined if I was Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, or Melancholy. I had ten descriptions for each category. I totaled seven in the D/Commanding Choleric section, four in the I/Cheerful Sanguine section, five in the S/Calm Phlegmatic section, and eight in the C/Clever Melancholy section. This means that I am primarily Melancholy and secondarily Choleric. My understanding of the word Melancholy is that I am sensitive and introverted, meaning that I would rather be to myself and I am not outgoing. This is exactly how I thought of myself.

For example, when I researched my personality type on www.16personalities.com it said that I was patient and had the ability to concentrate. I am very impatient and I am easily distracted especially when under stress. Other than those two descriptions I think that these tests really helped me further understand my personality. I do hope to change a few things about myself in the future. I want to be more caring and open to people. I do not want to give off any bad impressions to anyone any more than I already have. I believe that if I began to trust people more my personality would change tremendously. Overall, I really enjoyed both of these tests. I hope to take more time out to research more about my personality just to see if anything changes over time.
