The Who Am I Tag

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve done a tag but I really wanted to do this one after seeing it everywhere. Especially after my twin Lilly@LairOfBooks did it and I started checking out the links lol.


What is the meaning of my name?

The meaning of Gretchen is “pearl” and it is originally from Germany.

Fun fact? My name is very known in the town my family is from in Puerto Rico. There are a lot of girls named Gretchen 😉


What is my Myers-Briggs Personality Type? (Link)

According to my personality test:
The Advocate personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As members of the Diplomat Role group, Advocates have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is that they are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.

Things I find to be very true about myself:

  • It makes sense that their friends and colleagues will come to think of them as quiet Extraverted types, but they would all do well to remember that Advocates need time alone to decompress and recharge, and to not become too alarmed when they suddenly withdraw.
  • Egalitarianism and karma are very attractive ideas to Advocates
  • Combining a vivid imagination with a strong sense of compassion, Advocates use their creativity to resolve not technical challenges, but human ones.
  • Seeing through dishonesty and disingenuous motives, Advocates step past manipulation and sales tactics and into a more honest discussion. Advocates see how people and events are connected, and are able to use that insight to get to the heart of the matter.
  • Speaking in human terms, not technical, Advocates have a fluid, inspirational writing style that appeals to the inner idealist in their audience.
  • Advocates have strong beliefs and take the actions that they do not because they are trying to advance themselves, but because they are trying to advance an idea that they truly believe will make the world a better place
  • Advocates are extremely private when it comes to their personal lives, using this image to keep themselves from having to truly open up, even to close friends. Trusting a new friend can be even more challenging for Advocates
  • People with this personality type are likely to exhaust themselves in short order if they don’t find a way to balance their ideals with the realities of day-to-day living

That’s the Slytherin in me lmao.


What does my birth order say about me? (Link)

I am a Firstborn and according to the link, this is what it says (I disagree with a lot of this):

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.
Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel.Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.
When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.

  1. Oh Yay! you did the tag! I was curious to see what you’d get lol, I can totally see you as Dauntless, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin 100%! I absolutely believe there’s a town in PR filled with Gretchen’s, a good portion of which are now in NY in Isaeblla’s classroom haha! I love how it’s pronounced in Spanish 😉 I’m convinced we’re twins cuz you’r a Virgo & I’m a Cap, always make for a good pairing. That Horoscope link is ON POINT! *thumbs up emoji* 😉

  2. Oh this is such a great tag, I always love seeing other bloggers answers for these and learning more about them as well. 🙂
    I think I got the Advocate for my Myer-Briggs personality test. Parts of it I found I agreed with and parts I didn’t, but then again I guess that’s got to be the same for most people right?
    Also I got Writer for my career as well, which I feel like everyone has, unlike you I don’t think I’m ever going to be a writer but it was fun taking part in that quiz! 😀

  3. I’ve really enjoyed seeing this tag around the interwebz– it’s so fun! your continual tossing in of Slytherin slays me. Own up to who you are, I guess. 🙂 While you might not agree with everything, do you at least see some parallels in your own life here? What about being the first born don’t you relate to?
