What is My Personality Type?

So I’ve always been slightly curious about these “personality type quizzes” that are always going around. I’ve also wondered two things:

  1. Who on earth came up with them
  2. What is it and what does it mean

I had some free time today and thought why not look into them and take one?

Personality Type- noun (Psychology)

a collection of personality traits that are thought to occur together consistently, especially as determined by a certain pattern or responses to a personality inventory.

“The MBTI questionnaire, first published in 1943, was originally developed in the United States by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. Katharine Briggs was inspired to start researching personality type theory when she first met Isabel’s future husband, Clarence Myers.” This can be found here.

So I took a test from this site and was given ISTP as my personality type.

It breaks down as this:

Introvert- 44%

Sensing- 28%

Thinking- 22%

Perceiving- 3%

This means that I have a moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion. A moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition. Then a slight preference of Thinking over Feeling. Lastly I have marginal to no preference of Perceiving over Judging.

I’m not really 100% sure on my results, but that’s what I ended up getting. In fact I’m about 90% this isn’t exactly true to how I think I really am, but it was interesting taking this test.

Have you ever taken a Personality Test and if you have, what results did you get?

Vegan Blueberry Muffins

I was looking around online at different breakfast recipes the other day at work, and this vegan blueberry muffin recipe stood out for two reasons. 1. I love blueberry muffins! 2. How in the world are these things vegan?

I found out that vegan food has no dairy or egg products at all. I was curious as to how the muffins would taste without milk or eggs in them so I printed it out and decided to try it. Turns out they are amazing, so I wanted to share the recipe with you guys.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup refined sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup plus a little extra non-dairy milk of your choice (I used vanilla almond milk since that’s all I had)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (If you use frozen make sure you thaw them out before adding them in)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Then grease 12 muffin cups or line them with muffin liners.
  2. Combine all your dry ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Next combine the oil, mashed banana, and milk. After this is well incorporated fold in the blueberries.
  4. Divide the batter into the muffin cups, about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 17-20 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

Tiny House Update- Trim!

The trim is going up in the tiny house y’all! I’m so excited about this! I thought putting up walls helped make it look more like a house, but now that the trim is going up I can see everything coming together.

Trim around the kitchen window. Why yes, I am using a random piece of duck cloth and layers of tissue paper to protect my counter top. (:

The wall is looking just about complete!

The trim continues to more of the house!

The list of things to do before I can move into the bottom part of the house is getting a lot shorter now! In fact I’ve already done so much since this stage. I’ve enjoyed working on the house, but I’m really anxious to move in! I’ll fill in and what all I need to accomplish with the house soon!
