Book Tag | Who Am I?

So, again I was doing a little blog hopping and going through some of my favourite blogs archives and I found this tag on Howling Libraries, which is one of my favourite blogs to browse through. This seemed like such a fun tag as I love all those personality tests and it's also a great way to get to know the person behind the blog in a different way.

What is the meaning behind my name?

  • My full name is Roberta which apparently is a name of English origin meaning "bright fame". My nickname is Bobby which is what I tend to be called and it similarly means  Famed, bright; shining.
  • My blog name is Books and Babble and I chose it because I initially wanted my blog to be a mixture of book posts and posts geared towards lifestyle and my university experience and just more personal posts. My blog now primarily talks about books but I do post the occasional 'babble' post as well.  

What is my Myer-Briggs Personality Type?

  • I am an INFJ which is the Advocate personality type. INFJ's have very strong morals and ideals and are always looking to help people although we need plenty of time to ourselves to regenerate. 

What is my zodiac sign?

  • I am a libra and I do feel like I fit those traits well although there are associations with the sign that I don't feel fit my personality. I am very indecisive, I avoid confrontation, I can be pretty fair-minded and I hate violence and injustice. People tend to associate Libra's with being materialistic though and someone who likes expensive and dramatic things and I'm definitely not like that.  

What is my Hogwarts House?

  • I am such a proud Hufflepuff. I always get very defensive when people make fun of my house but obviously us hufflepuffs are loyal to the end. I love knowing that I'm in the house that values kindness and hard-work. 


    What are my learning styles?

  • Visual 3
  • Aural 2
  • Read/Write 6
  • Kinesthetic 5
  • I have a Multimodal learning strategy which means I don't learn best in one particular way but can adapt my way of learning to the situation I'm in or to who I'm working with but I do prefer to learn through either reading the information or by a hands on approach.

Am I right or left brain dominant?

  • I apparently use both sides of my brain equally! 47% for the left side (logic and rules) and 53% for the right (creativity and curiosity).

What is my blood type?

  • Ok, so I have no idea about this one as I've never actually found out my blood type. I don't even know my parents blood types so I should probably go and get it tested to find out.

    What career am I meant to have?

    • I am actually quite happy about this. It probably wouldn't be my first choice for a career (I'm currently training to be a teacher) but this is a good backup plan!

Which Divergent faction do you belong to?

  • Again, I feel like this fits me pretty well but I know that this is also considered the weakest faction so...

What does my birth order say about me?

The Middle Child

Stereotype: Social butterfly, peacekeeper, fairness-obsessed.
Why it’s true: “Middle-borns don’t have the rights of the oldest or the privileges of the youngest,” says Catherine Salmon, Ph.D., a coauthor of The Secret Power of Middle Children. As a result, they become experts at negotiation and compromise. They also tend to lean on their friends, as their parents’ attention is often focused on the oldest or youngest child.
When it’s not: If the oldest doesn’t act the part, “it creates a job vacancy,” says Salmon. “Donald Trump is a middle with a firstborn brother who didn’t fit the role. Donald usurped it.” And what if there are several middle children? “There’s a principle that each child is trying to be different from the one immediately older,” says Salmon. “So if you had three middles, the first and third would likely be a bit more similar to each other than to the very middle child.”

  • I feel like there shoud've been more options then just the oldest, the middle child and the baby. I'm the second youngest of 5 children so I'm not quite the baby of the family but I'm also not slap bang in the middle. 

If anyone else does this tag, feel free to link it down below for me to check out!

  1. I remember doing this tag! I don’t know my blood type, either. That would probably be good information to have. I’m also a middle child, but I definitely don’t fit the social butterfly stereotype.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
