There are a ton of personality tests out there.
Are you chaotic neutral or lawful good?
Are you an “acts of service” or “physical touch” type of partner?
Which Disney princess are you based on your bowel regularity?
But as far as a test that really digs into the key facets of who we are as complex humans with ingrained habits and motivations, the popular 16 Personalities Test is one of the more reliable tools to help us learn a bit more about ourselves.
The free test takes about 5 minutes to complete and will yield tons of information about how you move through the world—even giving a deep dive into your work habits. All you’ll need to find your must-have ClickUp feature is your 4-letter result.
By the way, 16 Personalities Test is not formally involved with this post—we’re just fans who found their approach to be extra insightful. 🤓
Let’s get started!
- Introducing… You!
As someone who has sometimes gotten the “ENFP” result and other times the “INFP” result, it’s important to remember that your own “type” is not about fitting you in one box, it’s getting a baseline sense of self-awareness in major aspects of life so you can spot patterns and strengthen your best qualities.
Like this test, ClickUp was built to accommodate and help all types of people with its endless customization and incredible features that can work the way you do. The key below explains what each letter of your result means in a given context:
Within the 16 possible personality types, there are 4 general groups: Analysts, Diplomats, Sentinels, and Explorers. When choosing a ClickUp feature for each personality, we’ve considered each letter’s meaning in the context of work as well as a consideration for the natural strengths and challenges of each type.
Here we go!
