The Who Am I Tag

I was tagged by Sydney @ Fire and Rain Books to do this tag. Thank you Sydney, this tag is really cool. This is a long tag, so let’s jump right into it.

What is the meaning of your name?

My first name is Romana. It means different things in different languages. In Arabic, it means ‘pomegranate’. It apparently also means ‘romantic’ and ‘fascinating’ in Urdu, I believe. In Latin and derived languages, it means ‘from Rome’, more specifically, a woman from Rome. And finally, in Aramaic or some similarly defunct language, it means ‘strong’.

My middle name is Tabita, which is a variant of Tabitha and it means ‘beauty’ or ‘grace’ in Hebrew. And it was derived from the Aramaic word for ‘gazelle’. So, in Aramaic it means ‘gazelle’.

What is my Myers-Briggs Personality Type? (Link)

“THE LOGICIAN” INTP-A (Introvert, intuitive, thinking, prospecting, assertive)

I did this test ages and ages ago, and I don’t remember what I got back then. But I believe it was something similar. Anyway, I’ve been reading the profile for this and it is SO ME! I don’t think I have ever identified with a personality test more than I do with this one. Here are some of the cliffnotes:

The Logician personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent
of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there’s 
nothing they’d be more unhappy about than being “common”. Logicians pride 
themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective 
and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, 
or the dreamy professor, Logicians have been responsible for many 
scientific discoveries throughout history.

Me, AF.

They love patterns, and spotting discrepancies between statements could 
almost be described as a hobby, making it a bad idea to lie to a Logician. 
This makes it ironic that Logicians’ word should always be taken with a 
grain of salt – it’s not that they are dishonest, but people with the 
Logician personality type tend to share thoughts that are not fully 
developed, using others as a sounding board for ideas and theories in a 
debate against themselves rather than as actual conversation partners.

Yep.

When Logicians are particularly excited, the conversation can border on 
incoherence as they try to explain the daisy-chain of logical conclusions 
that led to the formation of their latest idea. Oftentimes, Logicians will 
opt to simply move on from a topic before it’s ever understood what they 
were trying to say, rather than try to lay things out in plain terms.

The reverse can also be true when people explain their thought processes 
to Logicians in terms of subjectivity and feeling.

Strengths:

  • Great Analysts and Abstract Thinkers
  • Imaginative and Original
  • Open-Minded
  • Enthusiastic
  • Objective
  • Honest and Straightforward

Weaknesses:

  • Very Private and Withdrawn
  • Insensitive
  • Absent-minded
  • Condescending
  • Loathe Rules and Guidelines
  • Second-Guess Themselves (so me!)

Notable Logicians include Bill Gates, Albert Einstein, Blaise Pascal (yay! one of my favourite philosophers), Isaac Newton and Maester Aemon Targeryen lol

What is my Zodiac sign?

Libra, I believe. But I don’t really put any store in the Zodiac.

What is my Hogwarts House? (Link)

Ravenclaw, according to Pottermore. Also Slytherin, according also to Pottermore. Let’s see what this quiz says.

What are my learning styles? (Link)

I’ve actually done this exact test before a while back and I believe I got the same result then as well. I have multimodal learning preferences with stats as follows:

  • Visual 10
  • Aural 10
  • Read/Write 12
  • Kinesthetic 15

Am I More Right or Left Brain Dominant? (Link)

Left brained

What is My Blood Type?

Hell if I know. I know one of my parents is A and one is B and I know one of my grandmothers is O. So I literally could have any of the four. I can’t even narrow it down. I’ve actually never had it tested. Probably should.

What Career Am I Meant to Have? (Link)

This should be interesting.

Apparently writer. I will make no comments on that.

What Divergent Faction Do I Belong In? (Link)

Now this is a test I have never taken before. Let’s see.

Ahahahahahaha! Amity. Amity! Haha… oh… such a good joke. I would have fit in any of the other factions better than in Amity.

What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)

The Firstborn

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.

I guess? I don’t know. Meh.

 


This was fun. The Myers-Briggs one was spot on. The Hogwarts one as well, I suppose. The rest of them… meh.

  1. Great answers! I’m glad you felt like you connected to the Myer Briggs personality you got. And your first name is beautiful and all the different meanings of it are beautiful too. I think it’s funny that you also got writer for your career. Every blogger I’ve seen do this tag has also gotten writer.

  2. Yes, Ravenclaws unite!
    I think I would choose Erudite in Divergent. I like some of the aspects of Amity and Abnegation, but i would go crazy having to adhere to them to that extent. (Which is partly the point of the book, but you know…)
