What Personalities Are in Your Homeschool?
Although we are all made in the image of God, people come in many different shapes, sizes, and personalities. Likewise, though your children may have the same father and mother, it’s amazing how different their personalities can be. With those personalities, can come wonderfulness but also difficulties with everyone living and learning under one roof.
To help you better understand what makes each person unique in your family, the people of NERIS Analytics Limited in the United Kingdom created a free personalities test. So far, over 118 million people have taken the test, and while it’s interesting to find out your own personality, it’s even more beneficial to learn about those you live and work with daily and how your personality affects your interactions with each of them.
After all, as the test creators wrote, “this isn’t just about you. We firmly believe that the more people are aware of strengths and weaknesses related to their personality traits, the better and more understanding this world will be for everyone.”
So get started! Take the quiz and, of course, be honest to see which of the 16 personality types defines you. Then, share it with each member of your household and schedule some time to talk about how what you learned can benefit your homeschooling family.
