I told myself I would be consistent when I started this blog. The goal I set for myself was to write two blog posts a week. Since it’s the beginning of March, I am still transitioning from the off-season to the busy season (which will hit me at full force next month). I don’t have as many sessions to share this month (because winter is slow), so thinking of content to share twice a week has been challenging.
As I was brainstorming things to share on the blog, I saw someone on Instagram talking about their personality types. I have never taken a personality test, but I have heard plenty of things about the Myer-Briggs and Enneagram tests. I may not be the most confident person in the world, but I do know who I am and my limits. I’ve always been more reserved and organized, and I think I get that from my MaMa. Some people say I am a perfectionist, and I would have to agree (it’s a blessing and a curse). So, today I thought I would see if the tests added up to my own judgement. Here are the results:
My Enneagram test results told me that I had the Type 1 personality type (The Reformer). “Perfectionists, responsible, fixated on improvement” were the main words to describe a Type 1. Click here to take the Enneagram test.
The Myer-Briggs test told me I was an INFJ-T. The “I” is for introverted (75%). “N” is for intuitive (53%). “F” is for feeling (63%). “J” is for judging (79%). “T” is for turbulent (64%). Click here to a take the Myer-Briggs test.
If you would have told me five years ago that I would be a photographer, I would not have believed you. I was too shy, too introverted. If there’s one thing I have learned throughout the last two and a half years of running this business, it’s that you don’t have to be the most outgoing to be a successful photographer. Being the reserved person that I am has actually helped me grow as a photographer. I understand how nerve-wracking it can be in front of the camera, and I use my personal experiences to help my clients have a fun time at their pictures. With every session, I make it my personal goal to give a good photographic experience… not just a gallery!
