The Briggs Book Tag

I haven't done a tag in literal years, but I couldn't pass this one up! A tag solely based on the Myers-Briggs personality test? YES, PLEASE. I've taken this long ago, so I was ready with my type (and I even took the quiz again just to be sure and to read it all through). :D This tag was created by Jaded Reader, who has a document on her Youtube page with all the questions and quizzes if you want to do this too!

i still die every time I see that 1% of extraversion and omg @ 72% turbulence in my decision-making 😂 (probably why I have depression and anxiety, tbh!)

So, some things about my type:
*photo from Personality Central*

*William Shakespeare is also a mediator (this is very, very important to me)
*I tend to place people's feelings and experiences above facts and "being right"
*I'm open-minded, passionate, creative, and dedicated.
*Weaknesses: too altruistic and idealistic, take things personally, and difficult to get to know.
*Why isn't author on that list tho?
*"it’s as though Mediators like the idea of human contact, but not the reality of social contact." OMG I FEEL ATTACKED
*"First and foremost is seemingly every Mediators’ dream growing up – to become an author." Y'ALL.
*Many Mediators go to school for sociology and psychology, which is what I did!


You can be outgoing, but need to recharge with some calming solitude. Where is your favorite place to read & unwind? Why is this little oasis where you choose to go?
Sadly, it's just my bedroom. It's my PLACE. 

Some books are meant to be understood and others are meant to be explored. What book or character stands for an idea that is deeply meaningful to you?
The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord. The exploration and questioning of faith in particular is a theme that has played out in my life before, and currently honestly. Also A Monster Calls for its incredible look at grief and the way it changes us.

Not everything needs to be realistic, where is the fun in a world with limits? Which fantasy world do you find so atmospheric you slip inside and never want to leave? (Put simply a book with good vibes)
Well. This is hard. Because some of the worlds I love and have gotten lost in are NOT fun at all (I'm lookin' at you, Lumatere) and Harry Potter's magical reality feels too unoriginal of an answer (and it doesn't take place in a fantasy world). But fuck, no one writes like Laini Taylor, so I'd have to choose the story of Weep and gods and tears in the universe that hide so many secrets and worlds within (Strange the Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares).

TBRs are fun to construct and meant to be destroyed. Do you stick to the list or mix it up every now and then? What’s a book you’ve put down that you want to pick back up, but just haven’t been in the mood for?
Oh, I definitely mix it up! I'm too much of a mood reader. But I LOVE making lists, loooove. I just never quite stick to them. Haha.
The most recent was Summer Bird Blue. I just. I can't do such a heavy grief book at the moment, so I had to set it down. But I loved Starfish and want to finish this one someday! Especially since I have friends who love it.

INFP: The Idealist/The Mediator
Even when conflict runs high you can be the advocate for either side. What is a book that was not well received but you were able to find its good qualities?
Escaping from Houdini and From Twinkle, with Love. The first has been receiving SO MANY negative reviews, and I totally understand it, especially because of a new love interest getting thrown into the story. But I still enjoyed the book and will be reading the 4th. And the latter is getting mixed reactions because of the main character, Twinkle, who is such a *teen* and who is young and immature at times. But the story was SUPER cute, and I adore her.

Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test? If so, what type are you? Are we the same person?! Let's talk. :)
