– KEYS SOULCARE
We’re all guilty of a late-night “find-your-perfect-blank” quiz or two — from searching for our perfect skincare style, to examining how our moon signs match up with our crush. Personality tests can offer valuable insight into not just who we are, but how to take care of ourselves — and our spirits — in unique ways. We’re sharing some of our favorite tests and how we love incorporating them into our rituals.
What They Are: Also known as a natal chart, birth charts are your glimpse into our universe at the precise moment you were born. With your birthplace, date, and time, you can calculate your map and find your astrological signs to get a deeper understanding of what was, is, and will be written in the stars for you.
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: As one of the most utilized forms of self-expression and understanding, this astrological tool is a great way to appreciate your ties to the sun, moon, and stars. It’s also a choice tool for navigating relationships, career, and personal development. Astrologers like Chani Nicholas are a great place to start exploring all things you, such as communication styles and sense of self-awareness, innate hidden talents, gifts, and quirks .
What They Are: Created in the 1980s by Ra Uru Hu, The Human Design System has been referred to by fans as “the user manual” of your existence. Insights from your birth chart data are linked to patterns about how you see and move through the world, your most effective problem-solving style, and strategies to reach your highest purpose and potential.
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: Once you complete your chart, you will fall under four main types: manifestors, generators, projectors, and reflectors. Your type can offer you clarity on your career and relationships by showing you where you can focus more (or less) in order to feel connected and successful along your journey.
What They Are: The Enneagram revolves around core beliefs (and limitations) about how you think the world works. There are nine numerical personality types, which are indicative of your core personality type, with various “wing” personalities showing who you are in times of stress versus who you are as your best self. Each number has a titled personality and a short list of common characteristics (ex. Enneagram 6 is the Loyalist and seen as “the committed, security-oriented type: engaging, responsible, anxious, and suspicious,” according to the Enneagram Institute).
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: The Enneagram is a great way to understand what your motivations in life might be. For instance, an Enneagram 7 wants freedom and can have some serious FOMO while an Enneagram 6 craves loyalty, relationships, and security. These results can let you know how to prioritize your joy, create boundaries, and confront your limiting beliefs in order to reach your highest self.
What They Are: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the most well-known personality tests around. Created by mother-daughter duo Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Briggs, this exercise is meant to help you understand your default preferences through four points: your worldview (introversion or extraversion), information processing (sensing or intuition), decision making (thinking or feeling), and structure (judging or perceiving).
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: Once you have your MBTI results, you have a working understanding of how you interact and process the world. Your personality type tells you a lot about how you manage stress, build relationships, manage time, and more. We mean, there’s a reason why it is a fave amongst the pros.
What They Are: DiSC (dominance, influence, steadiness, conscientious) is a personality test to help you understand who you are on a team. It speaks to two main drives: motor and compass. Motor or pace drive tells you how fast you want to go when handling a task, while compass or priority drive tells you what you tend to focus on. (Translation? The task you have to do or the people around you who are impacted by your work).
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: With a DiSC assessment, you can lean in (or lean away from) some of your driving factors, especially when it comes to your career. If you find yourself being more dominant and task-focused, you may feel the need to nurture your people skills. If you lean more influential, you may want to embrace your lightworker energy and share your wisdom with the world. Whatever the case may be, DiSC can clarify or affirm your path to abundance and connection.
What They Are: Sparketypes were developed by author-slash-entrepreneur Jonathan Fields to hone in on what makes you feel most alive. The system aims to take what you love to do and provide you with an archetype that will help you unlock your full potential. The Advocate, Warrior, and Sage are just a few of the possible results.
How to Fold Yours Into Your Soulcare: Living authentically is one of the goals of soulcare. Having a name and guide for who you might be — like The Essentialist, who feels alive when they create order from chaos — gives some powerful insight into how you can harness your passion to fuel your purpose.
