We live in a time where technology has allowed us access to so much almost instantaneously, and because of this we have the ability to research more than any generation before us. In what is probably deemed selfish, a lot of people use this access to better understand themselves.

To see what their personality traits are, where they are best suited to work, their relationship needs, which real housewife they are most like, you get the picture. There are tests that are commonly known, and taking these tests to see what your personality type, or love language is could be helpful in interacting better with people.

1. The Meyers Briggs Test

This test is one that is known by most people. It is a self-reporting questionnaire that highlights the psychological preferences of individuals in regards to how they see the world around them and make decision. Introverted v. extroverted, sensing v. intuition, thinking v feeling, judgement v perception. This test will help you realize how you view situations, and how your reactions might affect those around you. It's good for the work place, friendships, sports teams, pretty much anywhere.

2. Love Language

So this test really helped me realize what it is I need in a relationship to feel appreciated. And it also helped me realize that the person I am with might need something different. So while you might think you are showing them how much you like and cherish them, they aren't getting that from your actions because their love language needs are different. This one was extremely helpful in me being able to articulate what it is I want and need from a relationship.

3. How to Fascinate

So this test is really good for helping you make your best first impression possible. This test measures how other people perceive you at your very best, and helps promote your most influential traits. Another good one for the work force, especially as you're breaking into it or starting the interview and hiring process.

4. Alex and Ani Blue Print

This is not in any way shape or form an Alex and Ani advertisement or endorsement. This is me telling you to check out your personal blueprint, which takes into account your astrological sign, your numerology, your archangel, etc. This is nice because it gives you a break down on a simple scale of your different personality traits. Plus it gives you gift ideas to tell your family members.

5. Enneagram

This is another personality test where you honestly answer questions about yourself and are aligned with whichever of the 9 personality types you have. These personality types are all interconnected and this test will help you discover how you interact with the different enneagrams.

6. Chakra Test

So Chakras are not an area in which I have a lot of understanding, but from what I gather, your chakras are energy centers that are found in the midline of your body. This test tells you which of your chakras are open and helping you live a more positive life.

So while personality tests are all subjective, and depend on the honesty of your answers, they are a great way to help you understand yourself, and how you interact with others. Dominant personality traits are different for everyone and knowing your most dominant traits and how they interact with other and different dominant traits is important to making connections that last and positively impact your day to day life.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
