I have mentioned this once or twice before: I work with an amazing bunch of educators. They put up with my crazy ideas and plans with aplomb and grace.
My latest crazy obsession was finding out which Harry Potter character reflected my teaching partners' personalities. Because, internet procrastinating is where I'm at!
If you know your Myers-Briggs personality type, check it out! The Harry Potter Character For Your Myers-Briggs Type.
If, like me, you have done the Myers-Briggs test so long ago you have forgotten your letters, have a go here: 16 Personalities.
What I really liked about this one is the holistic approach to the character profile. It absolutely can be used to discover more about your colleagues and their working habits and preferences. It can also be helpful for understanding your partner, friends and family.
I made a lot of my colleagues, my prac student, friends and my husband do the test, and discovered that I have many a "Remus Lupin" in my life, quite a few "Molly Weasleys", two "Fred & George Weasleys", two "Ron Weasleys", and a few others.
Even though it looks like just 'internet procrastinating' and silliness, I am glad my teamies are awesome sports and had a go. It's helped me see a different perspective and understand the underlying motivation for my colleagues and their reactions to situations. It also helped me identify my own strengths and weaknesses.
Plus, it was insightful and fun!
