Spiritual Wellness: Does your personality type match your inner Goddess?

Most are familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or MBTI, and it’s likely we’ve all taken the test online once or twice, then researched what it actually means and how it’s related to who we are at the core. While no personality test can actually determine who you are exactly – as we’re incredibly complex beings whose lives will be shaped through nurture and nature – it’s still an interesting way to get some insight into some traits we *may* have, all while learning more about ourselves in a deeper and more psychological way. 


The original MBTI was constructed by American mother and daughter Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers when Katherine became fascinated with learning and observing the different personality types of their family. Thus, she developed a theory of the four temperaments. Though neither of the women was formally educated in psychology, after reading Carl Jung’s book, Psychological Types, they realized that his theory was similar but went far beyond what they had developed. 


After extensively studying Jung’s work, the duo extended their interest in human behavior into efforts to turn their theory of psychological types to practical use. During WW2, they believed that their personality test would help women entering the workforce for the first time identify the appropriate war-time jobs for them. Their work attracted the head of Educational Testing Service, and, in 1962, the first MBTI manual was published. With support from some notable psychologists and professors, the publication of the MBTI was transferred to Consulting Psychologists Press in 1975, and the Center for Applications of Psychological Type was founded as a research laboratory.


The fascination of exploring our core and diving deeper into not only our psyche but our spirit is perhaps at an all-time high, what with our endless access to information and strong focus on mental health, spiritual wellness, and personal growth. We’re interested in working with our co-workers more collaboratively, we’re seeking deeper understanding in our relationships and community, and we’re learning how to break generational trauma. Personality tests like these go beyond surface level – they inspire us to be better, or at least a better version of ourselves. 


When developing our unique Goddess Quiz, we wanted to help women find strength within our Goddess Collection. We hoped to re-frame some of the traditional Goddess legends through the lens of the female gaze, as opposed to the hero's tale. We wanted women to feel something when researching and reading about the Goddesses in our collection while finding who they most align with. So we thought, which personalities would our Goddesses get if they took the MBTI?
