I Took The 16 Personalities Test  And This Is What I Learned About Myself
Colin Behrens

When taking the 16 Personalities test I found out that I am a logician which means I am creative, have different perspectives, and am an intellectual. When reading the introduction it was scary how accurate it was.

According to the test I have many positive attributes that can help further my future goals, for example, I am a great analyst and abstract thinker meaning I realize the complexity of what’s happening around me and how they can easily connect to each other. This ties into my future goal of helping people in need because I feel as though I need to learn about what problems are surrounding them and holding them down to better understand what needs to be done to help them.

While on the other hand I can be very introverted and have a strong dislike for guidelines which will clearly be a problem given the fact that my goal is to work in the Malian government meaning I need to work by the rules even though I don’t agree with them at all. Also with me being an introvert, I get uncomfortable with crowds very easily which isn’t ideal for someone who wants to be in a position of power.

The test also stated that I was open-minded and I completely agree with that, I am always willing to try something new even if I'm not fully comfortable with it or listen to peoples' ideas.

My end goal is to be in a career where I can help people in Africa and with this test it says that people with my personality types are natural scientists which makes sense given the fact that I spent years wanting to be a research scientist or biomedical engineer. All through the test believes in the science field for me I’m now interested in the diplomatic side of the world but I definitely need to analytical in that line of work as well.

While taking this assessment I learned that I need to stop second guessing myself because I am an intellectual being. I also see that I live in my head and that makes me come off as standoffish and emotionally unavailable. Although I find it hard to react and see how someone is feeling I feel as though I need to work on that with the field I want to be in.

To be completely honest I just want my life to be fulfilled, I don't want to feel as though I’m wasting anyone’s time especially my own. I believe that my purpose is to help people and this personality trait coincides with that belief.

Other logicians are Bill Gates (Founder of Microsoft), Kristen Stewart(Actress), Albert Einstein (Physicist), Isaac Newton (Mathematician), Stanley Crouch (American Poet), Leslie Winkle (Fictional character from the Big Bang Theory).

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
