So I’ve always been slightly curious about these “personality type quizzes” that are always going around. I’ve also wondered two things:
- Who on earth came up with them
- 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:
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?
I worked all this past weekend so on Saturday I took the wrapper pattern and pieces to work. I hand stitched the bodice together and the cuffs to the cuff linings. I forgot how long it takes me to hand stitch anything, but it was nice to have something to do to keep me occupied!
Front of the bodice.
Back of the bodice.
And the cuffs!
I’m happy with the progress that I’ve made so far and hopefully I’ll have more to show you later this week!
Happy 3rd day of the new year everyone! I hope your year is starting out great! I worked the past two years so today I was able to start on my first sewing project of 2018- an 1860 wrapper.
Now a wrapper in the 1860’s referred to a clothing garment that we would consider as a dressing gown or a night robe or housecoat. This will come handy during reenactments!
I purchased this fabric from Ensembles of the Past on Etsy. It’s a reproduction fabric and I thought it would make a perfect wrapper the moment I saw it!
I’m using the Period Impressions 1860 Wrapper pattern. Now I’m not following this to a “T” at all. I’m using the pattern as a foundation to build off of, so I’m using some aspects of it and completely ignoring the rest of it, haha. I actually do that with most patterns so why not continue it! (;
I’m also trying to be careful with how much fabric I use, especially since I want the skirt to be as full as it can be!
Here is the back piece with the two back side pieces. I don’t know why, but I like laying the fabric pieces of the pattern out like this. If only the sewing part could be as easy and quick as that!
It turned out that I only had a little over a yard of brown broadcloth and the lining pattern pieces barely fit on it! It took a little bit of squeezing everything together, but I’m happy that I won’t have to purchase some more fabric! My Grandmother taught me to work with the pattern pieces to get them to fit so you can save fabric, and also not to throw away the bigger fabric scraps until you’re finished with that project. You never know if you’ll need it!
After I get the skirt cut out I can start sewing everything together! What projects are you working on this year?
P.S. Thank-you Sarah for suggesting this post! (;
