The newest Star Wars is in theaters today, which I know this for several reasons.
1. Thanks to the permeation of their marketing and dollars that Disney has put behind this movie, one would need to be living under a rock to not know it exists
2. I have always been a fan of the franchise and enjoyed all of the movies. I am not a ``super fan" per se but have seen them all, owned some merchandise when I was a CHILD and can offer up the odd quote from the movie.
3. Lastly I know the movie is out today because my son and a host of other kids from his school are making the special field trip to see it. He has been under strict orders not to give plot spoilers when he comes home
All of this got me to thinking about what character resonates with me most. Thankfully for entertainment purposes, there are a number of ``What Star Wars Character Are You`` tests online. In my search I found a quiz that is related to the MBTI and took it. For the uninitiated, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a widely utilized personality test, which we use in some of our team building sessions.
Now, I already know my personality type to be INTP but took the shortened quiz anyway to see if there was any symmetry and confirmed that not only did it spit out INTP but the character that I am most like is Yoda. That is pretty good right? He is wise and logical and a pretty chill guy who magically disappears much like I do at a Christmas party. No notice given we just go poof and are gone.
I mean it could be worse; I could be Owen Lars (sorry Christina). The poor ISTJ’s get stuck with the most boring characters. They are not boring people. If you know an ISTJ, tell them you find them interesting and don’t tell them about this quiz.
If you are looking for a way to entertain family and friends over the holidays, there are many fictional character/MBTI quizzes online. They are fun especially when you know the subject matter fairly well. I would suggest you just give them a try but Master Yoda and I don’t operate like that.
Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
