The Who Am I Tag

Book Tag

I’ve seen this tag around the blogosphere and it seemed super fun, so I’m so happy Beth @ Reading Every Night tagged me in it! I actually love personality quizzes to this is so exciting for me to share my answers with all of you.

What is the meaning of your name?

My name is Sydney Leigh. It doesn’t have the best meanings haha.

Sydney has an uncertain meaning. One theory is that is is derived from a French place named after Saint Dennis. Another theory is that it is Old English for wide island (hence Sydney, Australia). My parents named me Sydney after my Great Nana Sarah, who passed away before I was born.

Leigh is from English origin meaning meadow, pasture, and delicate. I actually did not know this, so that’s exciting to learn! My parents gave me the middle name Leigh after my Papa Larry, who also passed away before I was born.

What is my Myers-Briggs Personality Type? (Link)

I’ve actually taken this before, but I think my answer has changed since then. I am now a ESFJ-T.

People who share the Consul personality type are, for lack of a better word, popular – which makes sense, given that it is also a very common personality type, making up twelve percent of the population. In high school, Consuls are the cheerleaders and the quarterbacks, setting the tone, taking the spotlight and leading their teams forward to victory and fame. Later in life, Consuls continue to enjoy supporting their friends and loved ones, organizing social gatherings and doing their best to make sure everyone is happy.

At their hearts, Consul personalities are social creatures, and thrive on staying up to date with what their friends are doing.

Consuls You May Know

  • Bill Clinton
  • Taylor Swift
  • Jennifer Garner
  • Steve Harvey
  • Danny Glover
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Sally Field
  • Tyra Banks

Strengths

  • Strong practical skills
  • Strong sense of duty
  • Very loyal
  • Sensitive and warm
  • Good at connecting with others

Weaknesses

  • Worried about their social status
  • Inflexible
  • Reluctant to innovate or improvise
  • Vulnerable to criticism
  • Often too needy
  • Too selfless

At first glance, I didn’t think this fit me that well (I’m definitely not the most popular in my school). But reading through the strengths and weaknesses, and the rest of the information on my personality type, I’m finding that I identify with it more.

What is my Zodiac sign?

I’m a Libra, which I do identify pretty strongly with. Usually I relate to the things said about Libras.

What is my Hogwarts House? (Link)

hogwarts-house

I’m a Hufflepuff and proud! Every quiz I take, whether its Pottermore or Buzzfeed, says I’m a Hufflepuff.

Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. The house has produced its share of great wizards—not least Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

  • Hufflepuff: 16
  • Ravenclaw: 13
  • Gryffindor: 10
  • Slytherin: 6

What are my learning styles? (Link)

I’ve actually always wondered this, and I’m not so surprised to find that I learn all different ways, although I have a mild Read/Write preference. I always seem to adapt to different teachers and their styles, but I prefer when studying by myself to read or write things down. It’s also not surprising that my second highest was Kinesthetic, because I find physical models and hands on activities make it so much easier to learn.

  • Visual: 3
  • Aural: 1
  • Read/Write: 7
  • Kinesthetic: 5

Am I More Right or Left Brain Dominant? (Link)

I use mine equally. This quiz was pretty interesting to take, because a lot of the time I didn’t know which answer related to which brain side. In most of the tags I read, people use both sides of their brain pretty equally, so I think that’s interesting.

What is My Blood Type?

I honestly have no idea, and my parents don’t know off the top of their head either. We should probably get on figuring that out.

What Career Am I Meant to Have? (Link)

Every other person I’ve seen also got a writer, which is funny because that’s basically what we all do now!

You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories

What Divergent Faction Do I Belong In? (Link)

I belong in Abnegation.

You belong with the selfless. You always find yourself lending a hand to others, and you seldom realize it. You truly care about the people around you, and you’re the first to notice when someone is under the weather. Just when you think you have a day to spend for yourself, you probably catch yourself listening to a friend dish about her problems instead. Some people might tag you as “boring”, but those closest to you know that you’re a simple gal with the purest of hearts.

I would’ve thought Amity, but Abnegation was my second guess. I like the whole selfless thing, but I think they took it a bit far sometimes.

What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)

I am a first born. I have one younger sister. According to this article, that means I’m a natural leader, ambitious, and responsible. I think this is pretty accurate, considering I take on many leadership positions in my BBYO chapter and consider myself to be responsible.

    Ohh I loved reading your answers for this tag Sydney! 🙂 In terms of the Myers-Briggs test I feel seeing the names of the famous people who share your personality tend to put you off a little bit, I felt the same when I got my result but reading through the description and the strengths/weaknesses it does fit me well actually.
    Yay for more Hufflepuff people on WordPress, that’s my house to and like you every time I’ve done a Hogwarts house test I’ve got the same answer.
    Also another Writer on WordPress, I guess given we all blog we are technically writers, and I guess we’re all quite similar as well because we’re all getting the same answer! 😀

    I feel like I ask my parents what my blood type is every five years and then promptly forget. Hopefully I’m not seriously going to need to know that someday!

    Yay Hufflepuffs! I’m Ravenclaw, but Hufflepuff would be my second choice House.
