I'm a Creative, Tastemakin' Performer - What's your Archetype?

I've always dreaded when you're in a new group setting and the person in charge says, "Okay, everyone go around, say your name and something interesting about yourself". Ugh.
It always feels so awkward to me, especially if you're at the end of the circle and have to follow up the, "I've been skiing in the Swiss Alps, guy" and "I birthed my first baby in under a minute, and with only one push, girl" (honestly, these are real-life examples from this type of exercise that I've been in before).

It's not that I don't have anything interesting to say, but when people don't know me at ALL, everything "interesting" sounds braggy to me. I wish people would ask a different question in those circles, like: "Tell us about the latest thing you created" or "What was the last song you downloaded on your phone, to jam out in the car to?" I feel like this would tell me SO much more about a person, and who they really are.

All this being said, I was totally intrigued with Archetypes.com, when they asked me a few weeks ago if I wanted to test out their website, to see what MY personal archetype was. Have you seen or done this yet? Basically, you sign up, take the quiz and then it breaks up into percentages what sort of archetypes you possess.
Archetypes quiz results - thehouseofsmiths.com
I have to say, I'm not complaining! The creativity description definitely describes me as a person the most I think, and the other two are more flattering than anything :) You can head over and take your own quiz, to see what it says about you. The questions are somewhat interesting; I'd love to know what you think of them.
The Daily Me - Archetype.com
Once your main archetype is determined, the site directs you to all things that deal with that category. Articles, ideas and best of all... shopping! And because everything can be filtered through specific archetypes, most of the things pushed your way are completely related to you; without having to sift through products or topics that you aren't really interested in.
I also created a ME board. It's basically like Pinterest, but I've been filling mine up with only items I can actually purchase; either from suggestions made on Archetypes.com or anywhere else on the web; feel free to friend me so we can follow each other! And okay, I'll admit, some of them are just "yeah right, only if I had a million dollars" kind of items... but nonetheless, everything collected has an actual link to a location where it can be bought! I love having a separate place for that now.

I know at this point you're probably intrigued as to what archetype YOU are, right? Yeah, well so I am! I'd love to see our readers' results on this quiz, because it would tell us a lot about our audience, and what motivates THEM. So to get you moving, and because we REALLY want to see what archetypes all of you are, we're throwing in a chance to win $100 Visa gift card, to any of you who are willing to share your quiz results with us!

HERE'S HOW TO ENTER:
Simply head on over and take the Archetype quiz. Then, share your results wheel via any of your social media channels, using the hashtags #archetypes, #whatsyours and #houseofsmiths so we can see them! You can quickly share your wheel, by using the social media buttons below your results when they pop up. If you don't have another social media outlet to share your results to, just leave them in a comment below.
Once that's done, just fill out the following Rafflecopter widget, to be entered for a chance to win the $100 Visa gift card, and you're done!

I'm pumped to see what all of you come back with as results. It's always fun to learn more about yourself, and see what specific things motivate, inspire and drive you as a person; whether it's in tough decision making situations, or just daily life in general.

Happy Archetyping!
