Have you ever taken a personality quiz in a magazine? Middle schoolers (and adults) LOVE to think, talk, read, and write about the most interesting topic in their lives- themselves!
This is a guided worksheet for students to use after completing a personality analysis on the website 16personalities.com. This is an excellent activity to use as a beginning of the year "getting to know you" activity, or as part of an argumentative writing unit where students analyze and defend their results. Self assessment and metacognition are both important skills in the classroom (and in real life), and this worksheet is fun, challenging, and eye-opening for both students and teachers alike. Results can also be used for cross-curricular units, with students mapping results using mathematical concepts. The quiz is available online and is free.
