We leave our mark on the world
My fiancé asked me to take this personality quiz after completing it himself and receiving a result that was scarily accurate. Naturally I was intrigued and took the test myself to see what it would reveal about me.
I have an advocate personality. Apparently they make up less than 1% of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. I love this. I’ve always liked the idea of my life having a purpose and that in some small way, I can make a positive change.
Advocates tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all
I often find myself thinking about how I should be doing something more purposeful with my life. I feel guilty about purchasing anything expensive and I really have to justify the need to buy it. I work hard to pay my rent and bills and enjoy the occasional treat, so why should I feel guilty? My conscience is always making me aware that there are better causes my money could be going towards. This isn’t a bad thing, it just makes shopping a little difficult sometimes!
Holding on to negativity
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness
This is a really lovely quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that was included in my Advocate test results. As someone who struggles with anxiety, I’ve really come to understand how holding on to feelings of negativity and anger only ever really prevent myself from being happy. I’m never going to be happy 100% all of the time, no one is and that’s life. However, I can very do everything in my power to promote good vibes and hope that spreads to people around me.
I enjoyed taking the quiz and exploring its interpretation of me. If you’re also slightly intrigued, take The Personality Test and see if you find it as interesting as I did 🙂
