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.”

Image result for i'm fabulous


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!

Get Sorted Here

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!

Image result for writer quotes

What Divergent Faction Do I Belong In?

Take the test

My Results:

ERUDITE (The Intelligent)

Image result for i am the smartest


What Does My Birth Order Say About Me?

Birth Order Test Here

The first born! I am.. a natural leader, ambitious and responsible. I’m not really sure if any of this is true…


Feel Free To Do This Tag If You Wish!!


That’s a wrap! I loved this tag so much. I hope another quiz filled tag is made soon! *hint,hint* This tag is definitely worth the time 😀

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags like this!

Top 5 Wednesday (#3)|Polarizing Books

 

Hey everyone! It’s time for Top 5 Wednesday! Let me know whether or not you’re enjoying this weekly meme! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have video blogs on YouTube. It’s definitely worth checking out! To find out more information, future topics and more, go visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is:

These are books that people either tend to love or hate, with no in between. Pick some of your favorites that fall into this category.


Top 5 Polarizing Books:

1. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

Image result for harry potter series

With this series, either you’re a Potterhead or not. To me, there’s no “partial fans”


2. The Fault In Our Stars By John Green

The Fault in Our Stars

Either you’re against the “romanticized and repetitive cancer theme” or you’re in love with Hazel and Gus’s tear jerking romance.


3. Paper Towns by John Green

Paper Towns

Some think the story is boring. Others get drawn into the adventure. To me, there’s no in between.


4. Fans Of The Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa

Fans of the Impossible Life

Some are drawn into the crazy friendship. Others are thrown off by the inappropriate and strange themes. My recent review/rant will tell you where I stand on this.


5. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

I’m cheating the topic a bit by putting this book. I actually haven’t read it. Twilight came to mind anyway when I read this week’s topic. It’s definitely a book that you either deeply hate or a few enjoy. There’s no in between!


That’s a wrap! Do you agree with my picks? What books would be/are on your list?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!

Top 5 Wednesday (#2)| New Years Eve Party

Hey everyone! It’s time for the new meme for Wednesday on this blog. There wasn’t too much response on whether or not you guys enjoyed this. I did so I will continue 🙂 Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have YouTube blogs as opposed to regular ones like this one. To find out more information, future topics and more, visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is the last one for the year. It is New Year’s based.

Characters You’d Invite to Your New Year’s Eve Party
Pretty self explanatory. Who would you want to your NYE bash and why?

top-5-wednesdays


Characters I’d Invite To My NYE Bash:

1. Hagrid- Harry Potter

Can you imagine how fantastic the party would be with Hagrid there? He would be hilarious and the life of the party 😀

Image result for hagrid


2. Dumbledore-Harry Potter

Dumbledore would make the party amazing! He seems like he would be the quiet person that occasionally says things that make everyone laugh.

Image result for dumbledore


3. Kitty-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

She’s a kid but always entertains me. She’d be the one trying and possibly succeeding in making everyone laugh.

Related image(No pictures of Kitty)


4. Levi-Fangirl

Levi would be the type of person making sure everyone is having a good time. He’s such a nice guy that would really add life to my party.

Image result for fangirl levi


5. Effie Trinket-The Hunger Games

Effie is so strange and unique. She’d probably be the one everyone is enthralled by but also scared of.

Image result for Effie Trinket


That’s a wrap! I would definitely invite more than these five. These are just the ones that randomly came to mind. I only did two Harry Potter characters. I’m glad the list has some variety. Who would you invite to your New Year’s Eve Bash? Let me know who and why!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!
