Art journal your personality type

Introspection is the examination or observation of one’s own mental and emotional processes. When I found out the topic of this season was about introspection, my first thought was about personality type tests. I enjoy taking personality tests and evaluating how accurate they feel about me.

I think questions about my personality type would be an interesting place to start art journaling. In the photo above I used 6×8 page protectors to document my Myers-Briggs personality type, INTJ for my personal scrapbook.

Personality type journal prompts

(from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)

  • Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world?
  • Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in or do you prefer to interpret and add meaning?
  • When making decisions, do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency or first look at the people and special circumstances?
  • In dealing with the outside world, do you prefer to get things decided or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options?

Enneagram-based questions

  • Do you take on confrontation or avoid confrontation?
  • Do you need to show affection to people or prefer to maintain some distance with people?
  • Do you tend to focus too much on yourself or others?
  • Have you been more relationship-oriented or goal-oriented?
  • Do you tend to get anxious if there is too much excitement and stimulation or anxious if there is not enough excitement and stimulation?

More questions for your introspection

  • Do you know your personality type?

    interesting questions to ponder, especially the ones about how your type affects how you share your pages.

    I am brand spanking new to GMA and I clicked on a random inspo word that led me to this page. It must be a friendly universe to show me a fellow INTJ right at the start. Thank you for putting this page here for me to eventually find, and love.
