Hello there, and welcome to the next step in the evolution of the “Autoimmunity + Personality Theory.” Please read below for more details about this data collection effort.
BACKGROUND FOR SURVEY
This survey is to help me expand upon a concept that I put together back in October 2016, entitled the “Autoimmunity + Personality Theory.”
The basic premise of the theory is that many of us with autoimmune conditions share similar traits and characteristics, such as being Type A, maximizers, perfectionists, etc. My hypothesis is that certain characteristics and tendencies may contribute to a predisposition for developing an autoimmune disease. In my original theory, I listed 15 traits that I felt fit the mold.
To date, feedback indicates that the majority of readers felt as if the traits described them. Today, I’m wanting to take this a step further and identify which established personality types, if any, are common amongst those of us with autoimmune conditions.
This may help to validate or invalidate my theory, but either way, I have a feeling it will be a remarkable lesson for us all, as I’m on a mission to discover what drives or contributes to autoimmunity beyond just the physical causes.
PLEASE READ: SURVEY DETAILS
If you do not know your Myers-Briggs personality type, you can use this free assessment to help you determine: https://www.blogthings.com/howrareisyourpersonalityquiz/
. Please be aware that although there are more robust, licensed versions of the Myers-Briggs test out there, many are lengthy and costly. As this “theory” and your participation are neither sanctioned nor sponsored, I did my best to choose a streamlined version of the established test, which I tested for accuracy amongst a small trial group.
Please do not guess or try to remember what your results were when you took the test 5+ years ago, as that may throw off the accuracy of the results. For most, this personality test takes less than 2 minutes to complete, and will help ensure consistency between responses.
Once you know your personality type, please complete the following 6-question survey.
