Get To Know Me Better Tag

 

Hey everyone! Once again, I’ve been MIA for a while. I wasn’t personally tagged but I have seen it done by Donna @ Chocolate’n’Waffles. Go check her out for fantastic bookish posts!

This year will be two years of blogging. I think it’s time for you guys to get to know me in a light and interesting way. Let’s get started! 


What’s The Meaning Of My Name? 

I looked it up a while back… After another search, my name (Makayla) means “who is like god.”

What is my Myer-Briggs personality type?

I have no idea how to explain this test. It’s some sort of personality test as shown by the title.

The Test

My Results:

I am a meditator or, (INFP-T). Here are the individual results:

17% Extraverted/83% Introverted This trait determines how we interact with our environment. This is very true! I’m a super introverted person 🙂

52% Intuitive/48% Observant  This trait shows where we direct our mental energy. I feel like the observant should’ve been higher. I’m definitely an observant person!

33% thinking/67% feeling This trait determines how we make decisions and cope with emotions. I had no idea the feelings would be so high! I guess I am a pretty emotional person though.

29% Judging/71% prospecting This trait reflects our approach to work, planning and decision-making. Not really sure how accurate this is.

19% assertive/81% turbulent This trait underpins all others, showing how confident we are in our abilities and decisions. This is probably pretty true.

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.


What is my Zodiac sign?

I’m a Scorpio!! According to the internet, Scorpio is nothing, if not fierce! The 8th Sign of the Zodiac, the Scorpio loves a good fight, and can give ‘intensity’ a run for its money (worth). Well, to put it simply, the Scorpions are strong, commanding, intense, passionate and zealous. Driven, dedicated and loyal, they also are ambitious and security-loving.

What is my Hogwarts House?

Don’t hate me, but I’ve never taken the official Pottermore test. I’ve only taken random quizzes that gave mixed results. This will be the true decider!

My Results:

The sorting hat says:

Awesome! I’m a Hufflepuff 😀


What Are My Learning Styles?

The Test

You have a strong read/write learning preference.


Am I Right or Left Brain Dominant?

Take The Test Here

I  can’t seem to post the picture but I am right-brained. 66%  is right brained and 34% is left brained.


What Is My Blood Type?

I honestly have no idea..


What Career Am I Meant To Have?

Here’s the test

I got 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.

This is pretty cool. I definitely love to write!

My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag

Hey guys! It’s finally the weekend. For most, that means it’s time to have fun and relax. I’ve decided to do another tag. This time I am doing the My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag. @My Tiny Obsessions did this tag back in May. I was unofficially tagged and am excited to do the tag. Without further ado, here we go!

THE NEW YOU


1) What Book Have You Been Unable To Finish?

Don’t hate me for this but Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I started the book and after a chapter or two, I put it down. I don’t know if I’ll ever start it again. It’s really not my type of book.


2) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You Just Haven’t Had Time?

So many books! Too many to count.


3) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is a Sequel?

I hope I actually understand this question XD I’m going to say I FunnyTV by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein . I have yet to read the third book so I can’t read this one yet.


4) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is Brand New?

Nothing that’s been released. I’m looking forward to Nicola Yoon’s new book The Sun Is Also a Star. It’s going to be released November 1st, 2o16.


5) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You Read A Book By The Same Author and Didn’t Enjoy It?

Nothing comes to mind.


6) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You’re Just Not In The Mood For It?

That would have to be Four by Veronica Roth. I got the book for Christmas (I think) and have yet to read it. I’m not in the mood and am not sure if it will be good.


7) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is Humungous.

This book probably isn’t very long and is not actually on my shelf. It’s The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This has been on my TBR since… now probably. It’s 584 pages, so longer than most books I’ve read.


8) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Was a Cover Buy That Turned Out To Have Bad Reviews?

I don’t actually own this book so it wasn’t a cover buy. The book is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I’ve read the first two books in the Divergent series but stopped before this one. It’s a bit intimidating because I haven’t heard good things about it.


9) What Is The Most Intimidating Book In Your TBR Pile?

I actually don’t have a TBR pile right now. I need to run to the library to restock it. I don’t really have long term piles. I just have ones that last a week or so.


I have no idea how far this tag has gotten. Because of that, I am going to tag Everyone who wants to participate!


That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this tag.  It was really fun to do 🙂 Feel free to leave any future tag suggestions!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags!!

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Favorite Cover(s):

Most of the covers I found looked pretty similar to the original.
