Briggs Book Tag

Hi everyone! I first spotted this tag over at It Starts At Midnight and I figured I'd jump on the train. The tag originated with Jaded Reader and I'm so excited to do it! If you don't know what your Myers-Briggs personality type is, you can take the test here to find out. I'm an INTJ, which honestly explains so much about my childhood and life in general. Maybe I should check out some of those top careers...

You can be outgoing, but need to recharge with some calming solitude, where is your favorite place to read & unwind? Why is this little oasis where you choose to go?

My favorite place to read is my bedroom, whether in my bed or in my reading chair. I CAN read in other places, but my bedroom is where I feel like I can really chill out and shut out the world. It's the main place I feel like I can focus.

Some books are meant to be understood and others are meant to be explored. What book or character stands for an idea that is deeply meaningful to you?


It's funny that these books aren't on my favorites list, but they both feature characters that deeply resonate with me. I love Tris and Jonas for not accepting what they're told and digging deeper and asking the hard questions. Really, I love most dystopian characters for this reason.

Non-Fiction for some can seem tedious, but where would we be without the truths of our world? What book, text, or reading material have you found yourself referring to when in need of real world answers?

Hmm, this is a hard one. I don't read much non-fiction and I usually end up referring to Google searches when I want more information about something. I suppose I'll just share a five star non-fiction read from this year that I picked up when I wanted to know more about Columbine, which happened when I was in middle school.

All play and no work leads to chaotic disorder…and anarchy.  How do you structure and balance your reading, blog, and personal life to better use your time?

I wish I had a better organization system, but mostly I just do things when I have time. I read every night before bed and I attempt to make time for blog hopping at least every other morning. I usually sit down and write posts in the evening before I read.

 INTJ: The Masterminds
You’re not in it for the small talk, so let’s cut right to the chase, what book captures the idea of what it is to be human?  

Haha, what? Am I allowed to say Harry Potter, or is that a cop out? I feel like this book explores humanity in so many ways and the characters are so human in that they're not black or white, but shades of gray. I dunno, I'm not deep enough for this.

Are you more introverted or extroverted?
