Who Am I? Tag

Since today is my birthday, I thought it was appropriate to do this tag about WHO I AM. I found it back in May at Bookmark Lit and knew I needed to do it. Feel free to participate if you want I'm not tagging anyone specific.

1. What is the meaning of your name?

Apparently Chrystal is an American created name made from a combination of Christa and Crystal. [source]
Christa means Christ-bearer [source] and Crystal means earth mineral or brilliant glass. [source]
Funny, my Mom just really liked the name Crystal or Christina, she wanted a CH name, so someone said just put an H in Crystal. She wasn't trying to combine two names at all. And I guess that means I'd learn towards the brilliant glass meaning then. Nothing special - not like my middle name, Ruth, that means friendship. [source] So am I everyone's BRILLIANT FRIEND then?

2. What is your Myers-Briggs personality type?

Mediator Personality (INFP, A/T) - Mediator personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, Mediators have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the Mediator personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.

3. What is your zodiac sign?

I'm a Libra - so my Myers-Briggs results make sense. You know balance and harmony in all things. That's me! The scales.

People born under the sign of Libra are peaceful and fair, and they hate being alone. Partnership is very important for Libra -born, and with their victorious mentality and cooperation, they cannot stand to be alone. The Libra is an Air sign, with expressed intellect and a keen mind. They can be inspired by good books, insurmountable discussions and interesting people.
The ruling planet of Libra is Venus, who is a lover of beautiful things, so the quality is always more important than the quantity for people born under the Libra sign. They are often surrounded by art, music and beautiful places. They are cooperative by nature, so they often work in teams.
Libra is fascinated by the balance and symmetry. Libra-born prefer justice and equality, and they cannot tolerate injustice. They avoid indulging in all types of conflicts and prefer to keep the peace, where this is possible. They like to do everything in pairs and not alone.
The biggest problem for Libra-born, is when they are forced to choose sides, because they are very indecisive and sometimes they forget that they have their own opinion.

Strengths: Cooperative,diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded, social
Weaknesses: Indecisive, avoids confrontations, will carry a grudge, self-pity
Libra likes: Harmony, gentleness, sharing with others, the outdoors
Libra dislikes: Violence, injustice, loudmouths, conformity

4. What Hogwarts house would you be in?

I've taken this many times and always get Hufflepuff, but I feel like I might be a combination of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. [source]


5. What are your learning styles?

  • Visual 7
  • Aural 7
  • Read/Write 8
  • Kinesthetic 8
You have a multimodal learning preference.

6. Are you more of a left brain or a right brain person?

Perfect! Almost 50/50 - I know there are times I'm more analytic and others I'm more creative, so this makes perfect sense to me. [source]

7. What career are you meant to be in?

Interesting. I always thought I'd be administration or HR related. I always played secretary growing up.

Writer: You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories.[source]

8. What Divergent faction do you belong in?

I've never read the books, so here goes nothing. [source]

Erudite - no idea.

Erudite is one of the five factions in the world of Divergent, the one and only faction dedicated to knowledge, intelligence, curiosity, and astuteness. It was formed by those who blamed ignorance for the war that had occurred in the past, causing them to split into factions in the first place. {Source}

9. What does your birth order say about you?

I'm the oldest of three children... Firstborn. [source]

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.
Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel. Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.
When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.
